We chose this hotel because of the reviews on tripadvisor. One of the few hotels who sadly did not live up to the reviews - at least for us! We stayed here for one night in August and we rate this hotel as average. We had a bad mattress where you could feel every single metal feather (those from the... More

We stated here for one night after the Palio in Siena. It was a great value for money, we booked it for a very good price and overall we were happy with it. The staff was nice, they called us in the afternoon to ask when we'll arrive and late arrival was no problem. It was easy to find, half... More

We stayed here for two nights in July 2013, and had a good experience. The hotel is in a lovely village in Chianti called Gaiole – the perfect spot for hiking and cycling activities, loads of routes/tours/maps/details provided by the local tourist office in the village (the woman who works there speaks brilliant English). The village is most famous for... More

This B&B is well situated in the middle of the picturesque village of Gaiole in Chianti. It is approached by a steep flight of stone steps; another downpoint is that there isn't any nearby free parking. The owner gave us a nice welcome and made a much needed cup of tea. Our room was basic but had all the ingredients... More

Gaiole in Chianti is a charming city and La Fonte del Cieco has the same spirit. La Fonte del Cieco is a warm and very comfortable ambient, in the main city square. The hostel is very charming, in a quite place and the room is clean and confortable. The breakfast is good and served in a small terrace.

The hotel is situated just off the main square in picture perfect unspoilt part of Chianti. The hotel room was clean and comfortable and staff helpful and accommodating. If you want to get off the beaten track then this is the perfect place to stay. You will need a car to get around but day trips can be made to... More

It is not easy to travel with two young kids (4 and 6) and feel like home. La Fonte del Cieco felt that way. The room was perfect for the 4 of us. Laura, thehotel manager, made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed staying in the small village of Gaiole which gave us the advantage of walking in the town... More
