Four of us recently shared the 2 bedroom apartment Rosmarino for 4 nights. One of the bedrooms has doors leading to the beautiful terrace, and you can also access this from outside the apartment. The bedrooms are very large - one with double bed, the other with two singles (leading to terrace) and each room as it's own bathroom attached.... More

We just returned from another lovely visit to La Fonte, and once again, Maria made everything so lovely for us. We love to sit out on the patio with views of the Tuscan countryside. A nice bottle of wine, some freshly baked bread, and cheese from the nearby co-op, and we have own own little picnic with this incredible view.... More

We had several stays with Maria, the hostess at La Fonte, as well in the apartments on the first floor as in the apartment Rosmarin on the ground floor. Each one is different, but we enjoyed staying in every one of them. The last one was the ground apartment. It has a nice terrace overviewing the valley behind La Fonte.... More

What a great holiday, The apartments at La Fonte ( San Gimignano) were extreemly comfortable and we loved all the original features. The garden and pool were delightful and we could get to all the mainTuscan tourist centres easily. The hospitality was superb. Thank you Maria. Hugh and Mary Herbert

I stayed at La Fonte with my husband and another couple in a two bedroom two bath apartment on the second floor. We could not have been happier. From the moment we arrived until we left we were amazed at what a wonderful place we had found. The grounds are beautiful with views of the Tuscan hill side. We traveled... More

La Fonte is an absolute gem for many reasons. First off, Maria is fantastic - very helpful and accomodating in everything we needed/wanted. You couldn't ask for a better hostess - friendly, always upbeat, helpful, and perfect English too! What a great spot in Tuscany as a home base to take in every town in the area. Four of us... More

It's hot, really hot in August in Tuscany. But if you can brave the heat, La Fonte is perfect. Maria the owner lives on site and is a mine of useful information, fluent English speaker. The rooms are very very comfortable and well equipped. The pool is great, location perfect. We stayed with children aged 10 and 8 and it... More

We stayed at La Fonte for 4 nights in September 2008 and it was a wonderful base for our exploration of Tuscany. Situated along a tree lined road only a few minutes out of the town of Certaldo, it provided a beautiful spot to relax and plan each day’s itinerary of searching out medieval towns and good wine on the...
