My wife, 5 year old daughter, and I travel all over the world and treat ourselves to the best hotels. We were not disappointed by Le Fontanelle and recommend it without reservation to anyone who wants a first rate hotel experience with exceptional service, attention to detail, a breath-taking, charming setting, and a dining room to die for.

Stayed with my wife for 3 nights. Found it on internet. It looks exactly the same as the photos on the hotel's website. Ideal place for getaway (romantic) vacation - located on top of the hill with its own vineyards and olive trees - provides for great views not only from the restaurant windows and open terrace but, as I...

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our time at Le Fontanelle. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and because it is small, the experience is very personalized. It truly is a gem tucked into the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The reception team was courteous and incredibly helpful in planning sightseeing trips and excursions to local wineries. The meals in...

We enjoyed six wonderful days at the Hotel Le Fontanelle - relaxing by the pools (outdoor and indoor) and visiting the surrounding beautiful Tuscany countryside and villages. We also spent a great day in Siena only half an hour away. Can't wait to go back again in the future....

This is a place for couples but not for families with lively children who may find the formality and other guests an inhibiting factor. The outdoor pool is also unheated and not covered at night and cold even for adults. The indoor pool was good but the spa would not be a place of destination. On the plus side, the... More

I have stayed in many luxury hotels around the world but none came even close to the Fontanelle Hotel. - Service was impeccable (reception, restaurant, maintenance), warm and generous: first time I really feel like a guest in a hotel - Location: in the middle of the Chianti, on top of the valley, gorgeous view with zero vis a vis....

I ate at the restaurant of the hotel in order to celebrate with my family the baptism of my first son. Everything was perfect, starting from the professionalism of the Fontanelle's staff, that helped me with great care to organize the event, to the quality of the food. Service was top notch, exactly what you expect from a 5 star... More

We just returned from a three night stay in a wonderful room at Le Fontanelle. It is a short drive outside of Siena and in high tourist season, it is a welcome refuge from the crowds. It is set high on a hill overlooking a picturesque valley of wine and olive fields. The front desk is unbelievably attentive and helpful.... More
