Our family was fortunate to stay here a few nights. Our room was beautifully appointed - and had a large private deck - which was part of the former castle. We overlooked the valley while we enjoyed room service the first evening. The outdoor dining area, food, service and ambience was so special, we enjoyed our best meals of the... More

Le Fontanelle is an outstanding, luxurious and beautifully decorated hotel in the middle of Tuscany's beautiful rural nature. Three things stroke us most: - The power of the silence was overwhelming, which makes it a perfect place to relax and detox. - The level of perfection was outstanding and achieved in the smallest details - But most importantly, the kindness...

My partner and I have just returned from this magical place...This was our best trip off all 30 trips we had in the past two years. Everything there is a first-class. The service was excellent. The best bed sheets - Italian linen from Tuscany, as well as Tuscan vinegar, their own olive oil and wine. A great place to relax,... More

3 days of luxury chilling out. Mastering the art of doing very little. Excellent restaurant. Hardworking but slightly disfunctional reception. We had a room with a little private terrace which was lovely. Only tiny gripe is that the shower was over the bath - and I do much prefer a walk-in shower.

This was our second visit to La Fontanelle and we couldn't recommend it more. We came here on our honeymoon and could not wait to return. The hotel setting, view, rooms, service, food - everything - was simply outstanding. We didn't want to leave. It has one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen, and the operation of... More

What a lovely hotel and setting! Set in very quiet countryside, up a private drive off a single track road off a country road! Views from the hotel include vineyards, fields, woods and hills. The pool area is very quiet with plenty of loungers and those great views. We had a basic 'classic' room which was lovely, air-conditioned and had... More

Having just come back from a 3 centre holiday (please read other reports) I can only write with disappointment about this hotel. I asked for a quiet room and was placed right outside the entrance to the lobby and restaurant (room 23 I think) where I could hear the piano player tinkering away into the small hours. We asked to... More

Beautiful hotel, built in 2006 and looks very new - in great condition. The rooms, amenities, and property are incredible and offer great views.

We were in Italy and France for almost three weeks and this hotel was the only one I booked that I was nervous about. I should not have been worried. This was the most relaxing portion of our vacation. It was like a special little oasis that swallowed us all up into a Zen mode. The view was breathtaking, the... More

Hotel Le Fontanelle is all of the things the previous posts have said. It has immaculate grounds, beautiful views, great service (which is not necessarily common in Italy!), and a lovely staff.
