“Fantastic rental in the heart of Tuscany.”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely base for exploring in Tuscany. The farmhouse was close to many spots for day trips (Volterra, San Gimignano, Sienna, the Mediterranean) but was also pleasant enough to relax at by the pool. Helpful groundskeeper recommended a great restaurant to us, and while there are other residents in the complex, it is quiet, well-maintained and a charming get-away.

“Relaxing Honeymoon”
Reviewed 31 March 2015 for a stay in July 2014

We spent 7 days of our honeymoon at La Fontanelle relaxing in the comfortable apartment after spending our days and evening exploring the Tuscan countryside. We loved the central location, so close to San Gimignano and other hilltop towns. We adored spending our early evenings sipping wine overlooking the lush valley before heading out to dinner in one of the nearby towns. The beds were completely comfortable and the apartment was clean and well stocked with everything we might need. We will definitely stay at La Fonatenelle again next time we are in Tuscany! A second honeymoon maybe? We have recommended the location to many of our friends, without hesitation!
