In case you only read one paragraph of this review, here is a brief summary: rent a car and stay here. Period. Villa Fontelunga is truly in the middle of nowhere (okay, the middle of Tuscany) but it is less than an hour’s drive to many of the highlights of the region. During our three days at Fontelunga, we made... More

Fabulous welcome last year and only just round to writing up. Loved the honesty bar, decor, room, bikes to rent, views. Only pity was poor weather so didn't use pool. Access great to lovely villages and easily get car/train to Florence for day trip.

Villa Fontelunga was an utter treat on our first (hopefully of many) visits this last week; the warmest welcome, a beautifully appointed room - exactly the right blend of contemporary design and home comforts (including Molten Brown toiletries) - beautiful views out to olive groves and beyond and lovely, relaxing sitting areas with magazines, guide books and carefully prepared information...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our holiday villas, owned and run by English and Italian friends, provide a stylish and relaxing retreat in Italy. Our Guests are warmly welcomed at their holiday accommodation and invited to treat their Villa as their "home from home" in an atmosphere of informal luxury. The elegant Villa Fontelunga is set above the Val di Chiana enjoying panoramic views across the countryside of Tuscany towards the hilltop town of Cortona, whilst the Villas are nestled close by in the historic Scannagallo valley. Crafted from traditional materials, the holiday villas are now a marriage of traditional Tuscan style and contemporary design. "Until now it has been difficult to find more than 'rustic charm' when it comes to villa rental in Tuscany; with our unique "Fontelunga" concierge service and luxurious contemporary styling, at last there is something more for the discerning traveller, your tailor made, perfect home away from home." Our holiday villas portfolio in Tuscany includes: Villa Fontelunga sleeping 16 to 18 (also run as a luxury "B and B") and within 10 minutes walk at Fattoria di Scannagallo in the Scannagallo valley, two new villas; Gallo sleeping 4 and Galletto sleeping 2. ... more   less
