Come visit our beautiful countryside estate

The Fontanaro Organic Olive estate and villas estate was  built in 1893,  located in Umbria, “the green heart of Italy” on the border of Tuscany, the property is set on 40 acres with  2.500 olive trees and a small vineyard.

The view lends itself to rolling green hills facing breathtaking sunsets and sunrise like a Perugino’s painting.

The history of il Fontanaro  is the history of  our Pinelli  family,  Italy.
