What a lovely place! Breakfast served on the terrace is a treat: marvelous view and very good choice of hot and cold food. The room is charming. Very clean. Again a lovely view and a greatly appreciated A/C. We would certainly come back if in the area.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights whilst attending a wedding in San Casciano, it was amazing! We didn't drive (I would advise hiring a car or bike as it is quite remote and the taxis come from Florence so are quite expensive) but the views are unparalleled and the staff could not be more accommodating (they gave...

A must stay when in Tuscany! My husband and I still tell people about your beautiful Villa. Breakfast fixed daily and the view from the veranda was amazing! Overlooked the Chianti Valley. Breathtaking views and great private pool area. Will defiantly go back! Only miles from Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and train to Cinque Terra from Pisa.

This was a fantastic start to our trip through Tuscany. You need a car, but it's only 20 mins from florence and very near to the next town where you can get a bus into the city and park for free. The scenery is absolutely stunning, certainly one of the best views over breakfast I've ever had! The host, Simone,...

If you're looking for a secluded place to enjoy fresh, fragrant air, truly relax and charge your batteries - look no further. This B&B has it all: cozy rooms, unobtrusive yet efficient staff, magnificent surroundings and terrific location (you're 2 minutes away from a wonderful restaurant Albergaccio Machiavelli, 15 minutes by car from Florence). Room was a bit small but...

Tucked away in a beautiful valley in Tuscany, this old farmhouse B & B is a perfect retreat. Basic, clean and full of Tuscan charm, it is a family business run by Simone who rustles up a hearty breakfast of eggs, bacon, fresh croissants, fruit, yoghourt and aromatic coffee every morning. You can have it on the terrace overlooking the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hello,my name is Simone Calonaci historical mention of a B & B La Fonte del Machiavelli Fontalle farmhouse belonged to Niccolo Machiavelli, the great writer and philosopher Fiorentino,the pleasure of sleeping in history.The Bed and Breakfast la Fonte del Machiavelli is located in this splendid setting, provides lovely well-furnished rooms, in Tuscan style, with ensuite bathrooms, air conditioned and equipped with satellite Tv, that overlook on the beautiful sorrounding view. In the morning you will wake up by birds song and admire all around cultivated fields, olive trees, cypresses, vineyards, green hills where here and there a stone farmhouse emerges. During summer you will have a good start of the day with a rich breakfast on the panoramic terrace and in the evening fall asleep among fireflies and crickets. A holiday close to nature, in the silent of Tuscan countryside, where you can regenerate, far from the confusion of the city. The family-run B&B's owners are professional and fond of, and they will receive you with warmth and helpfulness.The swimming pool: haven of peaceThe accommodation facility is enhanced by the enchanting swimming pool with solarium swathed in greenery, to sunbathe undisturbed, or to relax under the shadow of an olive tree, with the scent of grapes that arouses your senses.A B&B in a strategic place to visit Tuscany.Our bed & breakfast is in Fontalle, in the centre of Tuscany, in the neighbourhood of many places of historical and artistic interest, such as Florence, 15 minutes drive, and San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca, reachable in short time. The short-distance freeway allow to reach quickly by car all the most famous art cities of Tuscany, spending a day or half-day trip. To all those who love "slow holiday", from the close city of San Casciano some of the most scenic streets start, that lead to towns and historical villages of Chianti: Panzano, Greve in Chianti, Radda, Castellina in Chianti. Renowned lands for the beautiful landscapes, for the richness of art and architectural treasures and for the excellent wine. To ride with the motorbike or even with the Vespa, stopping over to admire the landscape or for a wine tasting.In the evening if you don't feel like doing too many km, in the vicinity of b&b within easy reach, you will find many restaurants and trattoria, to taste the Tuscan cooking.Best regardsSimone Calonaci ... more   less
