Agriturismo “La Fonte” is located between Sala Consilina and Padula near the III Century Baptistery of “Marcellianum”. Limpid and fresh water gushes from the Baptistery, definetely a godsend if you can drink it! La Fonte is run by Michele Rosciano and his family. They have a fishfarm (trouts, carps, sturgeons and other fishes) and grow various kinds of vegetables and fruits, as well as producing olive oil, red and white wine.
The house has been carefully renovated according to the original shape and is surrounded by green fields. The estate has a dining hall with a fireplace (built with the typical white stone of Padula), the ideal place to taste our dishes and wine. La Fonte has 4 rooms with private bathrooms on the first floor, and all rooms have a view over the ancient Baptistery.

What customers say about us: “This agriturismo ranks up as one of the best in the area, because it is of a very good value, very clean, it has a great location not far from Certosa di San Lorenzo and the owners will treat you like you have never been treated before. We stayed there in 2003 and Michele and his wife Maria greeted us, showed us our very clean and comfortable room, gave us a tour of the grounds - including the original Baptistery. The next morning, before we left they treated us to plenty of their home-made jam and, to our surprise,, Michele shared some of his great wine with us. This is Italy, after all!”
