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. The hotel staff is nice, but not a great professional hotel staff. They try hard, but fall short. Some bullets We arrived by Taxi and were dropped off at the front reception area. There was no...

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. What Hotel Le Fontanelle is NOT is a place to bring your kids. We arrived there in late June with our 3 kids in tow (ages 9, 13,... More

Stayed for 4 nights and couldn't have been happier - Marion and her team ensured the experience was phenomenal. Our classic double room was very spacious and had stunning views of the vineyards - loved the farmhouse shutters! The property is small, quite, private, peaceful, and a centrally located, convenient base for day trips to the famous Tuscan hill towns... More

Decided to stay here for 4 days on an Italian road trip. Having stayed at the four seasons in Florence for 4 days before this it was quite a big contrast. This is THE perfect hotel for winding down in. It's small, extremely we'll run and very special. I had one of the rooms with a private patio as I... More

The Hotel Le Fontanelle is the best of the best in Tuscany. You drive up to this extraordinary place and it immediately seems extra special. It was an old farm that they completely rebuilt about 7 years ago into the best quaint place in central Italy with nearby access to all the best the Chianti region offers. The rooms, the... More

There are so many titles that come to my mind for this wonderful Guest House . It is an oasis up on a hill at the Chianti region. But for this, I preferred to write '' A Wonderful Transition Shrine '' . It is such a secluded oasis, quiet,elegant,peaceful,pampering that if you are in a '' transition'' stage of your... More
