I recently spend three days at Hotel Fontanelle while on business in Tuscany. The hotel is perfect in every detail and is also very well run.

A place of luxury, lovely setting. Rooms delightful. Staff very helpful and friendly. We had a delicious dinner there. My only criticism is that they served the usual Italian breakfast and if you wanted an egg you could order one for 8 Euros !!
