“First-Rate Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The Villa Le Fontaine is lovely. Furnishings are of the highest quality as are linens and towels. The property is well cared for by "Butch" and the owners. The pool is beautiful. Indeed, my four grandchildren and their parents were often reluctant to leave the pool to see Florence!

The villa is very well located, close to local shopping at Due Strade, and an easy bus ride to the center of Florence. The views from the property are very nice and the enviroment very restful.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with. From my first inquiry until our departure from the villa, they attended to our every need and at least one "emergency" when two of my grandchildren ran afoul of the transit police in Florence. Bravo Antonello!!!!!

In short, if you have the opportunity GRAB THIS PROPERTY.

“The best of both worlds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our family had the most wonderful experience at Le Fontanine.
It is truly the best of both worlds. You feel like you are far out in the Tuscan countryside with the beautiful landscape, but you are only 1 mile from the city of Florence.
The house is spacious and comfortable. We have 3 boys (ages 10, 8 and 6) and our friends came with their 2 girls (ages 7 and 5). With the 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms we had plenty of space. The decor is cute and it is very clean. The kids had fun running around outside and playing in the fields. It was too cold for the pool to be open when we were there, but it looked very nice.
Antonello is wonderful and very accommodating. He gave us lots of great places to visit.
We hope to return to Le Fontanine someday!

“Great Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Our family had a great time in Florence and the "Le Fontanine" house added to a great experience. The 5 bedroom four bathroom house work very well for family of 7. We cooked a Christmas feast in the kitchen and the dining room worked perfectly for us.
Antonello was very helpful for us. He helped us get reservations at a local restaurant the first night. We went there twice as we liked it so much. He told how to find the local farmer’s market and grocery stores.
The location of the house was a plus for us – away from the crowds but a quick drive to downtown Florence. I liked the open area behind the house as it gave you the feeling of being in the country.
Le Fontanine is a great place and nice people.

“The Perfect Villa for your Tuscan Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Our family enjoyed a week at this lovely villa in July. The owners and caretakers took care to make sure their home felt like 'our' home. The villa is pristine, well-appointed, and situated on a picturesque hillside just outside of Florence. While we enjoyed quality 'together' time during meals, swimming and occasional TV/movie watching, the spaciousness of this property afforded each of us some quiet, 'alone' time, as well. We made daily trips (by 10-minute cab ride) into Florence; however, this villa is ideal for just kicking back, swimming, sunning and relaxing in the beautiful countryside.

“The perfect home for your Tuscan experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Our family very much enjoyed this lovely villa. The home is exactly as described and photographed, and the setting is very picturesque. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed. We enjoyed quality family time--dining together on the covered patio,relaxing poolside after a swim, or watching a little TV in the evenings--but the spaciousness of this home affords privacy and 'alone time', as well. The villa is a short drive into Florence, and there are some good, local restaurants within walking distrance. The owners and caretakers did everything possibly to make us feel at home in their lovely home. We have already recommended this villa to family members, friends and co-workers....and cannot wait to return!
