"From morning coffee on the veranda to enjoying a fire at the end of the day, Fondo Le Teglie is an exceptional country retreat. The guest rooms and baths are spacious and comfortable. Cook in the beautiful kitchen and enjoy dining outside surrounded by olive trees. Hiking, truffle hunting in the hills, wine tasting, shopping for pottery, visiting historic religious sites, there is so much to see and do. Or maybe a day to kick back and enjoy the pool. Susan's years of experience and connections with locals makes the stay at Fondo memorable. I've been renting villas and apartments in Italy since 1998 and this one is my favorite. You'll wish you had more time and I always want to come back for more."

“We hosted a family reunion in June of 2022 with 21 family members based out of Fondo le Teglie and two nearby villas. Each exceeded our expectations.
Susan Evans helped plan every detail of our visit. The tours were customized to meet the interests of our group. A tour bus was rented so we could all ride together on the daily outings. Each villa had it’s own rental car and the villa was stocked with supplies.
The Umbria region is beautiful and unspoiled. We never ran out of interesting churches, archaeological sites, shopping, wine tastings, and sightseeing in the area. Some in our group took daily walks, runs or bike rides prior to our tours. Susan knows many of those providing the tours, so we were given VIP treatment everywhere we went. As needs changed, they accommodated our every desire."
Needless to say, we highly recommend this Umbrian vacation with Susan Evans. This was our third stay in her II Gusto villa, and all were exceptional stays. You will not be disappointed.”
