We spent a week at this amazing hotel and have only wonderful things to report. It has relatively few rooms and is more of a restautant-with-hotel than hotel-with-restaurant. And what a restaurant! - gourmet food and excellent wine list. Our room was a comfortable suite with a second door right on to the garden and the lovely pool area. We were impressed by the cleanliness and the special measures in force for covid are evident at all times. It's a family-run hotel and the friendly attention to guest needs is top in its class. Samuele has plenty of suggestions for tourism in Umbria with many sites within half an hour's drive. Deruta is close and worth a visit for its famous maiolica - but more interetsing places (including Assisi) are within easy reach. It's not exactly in an isolated spot as the superstrada to Rome runs close by, but on balance that's an advantage to the hotel (bringing visitors to the restaurant from a wide area) and to hotel guests (making it easier to see Umbria from this spot). We had a truly wonderful week and highly recommend to other travellers. Thanks to Samuele and his family!

We stayed here almost exactly seven years ago, so when fate (more accurately my wife’s pottery collection) brought us back to Deruta, we jumped at the chance to stay here again. It was just as great as we remembered. The room was nice and clean, with excellent beds and a nice bathroom. Even better was the staff, led by the redoubtable Samuele. And of course there is the wonderful restaurant, reviewed separately. Look forward to our return 7 years hence, if not sooner.

The Rodella family keeps surprising us with amazing food, great hospitality and their incredible kindness. From the delicious pastries at breakfast, the nice pool area to relax, Samuele’s suggestions to discover the most beautiful spots in Umbria and even arranging visits to the best local wineries to off course the perfect combination of flavors and creativity for dinner. All is taking care off to give us the best holiday possible. The new SPA & Wellness facilities makes you relax even more. Always a pleasure staying at Antico Forziere. Already looking forward to our next visit!

Thanks again for all from all our family, it's always a great pleasure for us to welcome you and share time together. We hope a day to come in Belgium to you to spend some time together, and maybe open some great and good wine since you had not time for all the bottle you bought.... :-) I wish you the best for the winter and I really hope to meeting you again very soon. Kind regards, Rodella Family

L'Antico Forziere is a very special place – if you’re in Umbria (if you’re in Italy!) you should experience it for yourself. The whole Rodella family have made this country house hotel one of the most charming places we have stayed in. You’ll admire their attention to detail in every respect with service that is second to none from the moment you arrive. The gardens and terraces, including excellent swimming pool, are cared for with dedication. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, have a rustic feel with wrought iron fixtures, original wooden beams (our Room 23 overlooked the gardens and swimming pool) with good sized bathroom (shower, bidet and even environmentally sound toilet paper!) excellent air conditioning and sound proof windows. One of us experienced the ingeniously designed spa and the other an excellent massage given with care and expertise. And then there is the restaurant…the cuisine is world class. We only hope Michelin never get their hands on it or the prices would probably go up! Eat outside in the summer under a huge and brilliantly designed canopy or inside under candlelight. If you can only come once then choose the tasting menu – your experience will explain why this and other reviews have scored L'Antico Forziere so highly. We stayed for a week and after the first night didn’t want to eat anywhere else. It’s conveniently situated not far from the E45 but any residual noise from the road sinks into the distance as the sound of the Casalina church bells float in the air. Mornings by the pool, afternoons touring the heart of Umbria and evenings eating the best food we have tasted in Italy (and we enjoy our food!). Our next trip to Italy will be geared to visiting L'Antico Forziere again. What a splendid place, what a pleasure!

We had the pleasure of dining twice in this restaurant in 2016 and were lucky enough to be able to revisit Umbria again this year and had two more fabulous meals again. This restaurant is very special from the time you arrive. The welcome and service is impeccable. The food is so tasty and beautifully presented and we also got lovely bites from the chef at the start of the meal and also before our stunning selection of desserts which we had both night. The restaurant is such good value if you were to get similar dining standard in Dublin. We would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in the area and appreciate a good dining experience.
