Foresteria is a beautiful property completely surrounded by very large working orchard with apples, pears and perhaps some other items. We stayed for a week with friends and had a wonderful time. The attention to guests is great, but if you want to be left alone, that works too. Marian was a great host, and Madalina prepared wonderful meals and... More

This is my first ever posting to tripadvisor but I had such a great experience at Foresteria, I felt I just needed to post. The place was beautiful and we had a great time. We stayed in the BETTO apartment. It didn't have air condition but it was perfectly fine with the cool evenings, as it was enjoyable sleeping with... More

I'll just echo the other reviewers here... This is a beautiful place and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in il feniele ( spelling? ) and our friends stayed in beto. The air conditioning in il feniele was nice to have but not really necessary with the cool evenings. The bread truck delivered great breakfasts every morning, and Marian... More

We first visited Foresteria Il Giardino di Fontarronco back in 2002. My husband and I had such fond memories of the farmhouse that we wanted to go back with our children. We spent 6 days recently relaxing in apartment Gostino which was perfect for 2 adults and 2 children as it was very spacious and clean. The kids loved running... More

This is a great place to stay if you want to explore the cities and villages of Tuscany. Set in the beautiful surroundings of the fields of fruit trees, this is a little piece of heaven. The apartment we stayed in was just for 2 people but was quite spacious with a living area, a bedroom and a bathroom. It... More

Wonderful! What you see on the website is what you experience. Rustic, old world feel yet, clean and functional. Great staff. Great pool. Adore the truck that comes daily delivering bread, pastries, and pizzas for your breakfast or mid afternoon snack. I admit, I was picturing a horse or donkey drawn cart but, alas, it is merely a mini van... More

Across the years we keep on coming back to Il Giardino di Fontarronco, and there are powerful reasons to do so. First, its location in Tuscany is so central that it allows us to hop from La Foresteria to Civitella, Arezzo or Cortona in less than 30 minutes. Other Tuscan gems can be reached within 40 minutes. Then there is... More

This lovely property was recommended by a friend and neighbor as a great base for visiting Tuscany after a European cruise. It lived up to our expectations and more! Our two bedroom apartment that we shared with my sister and her husband was very comfortable and the setting in the middle of a peach and apple orchard was awesome! Marian... More
