“Beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2011

The farm is situated in the heart of Val d'orca . So everyday begins with an amazing view of the surrounding breathtaking vista. Pienza is a mere 5 mins away and a good place to gather supplies for a picnic or some BBQ .
The apartment we stayed in l'aia was very well put together and captured the rustic Tuscan charm very well. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you needed to put together a Tuscan meal.
The grounds of the property are beautifully maintained. Our daughter had a wonderful time exploring the farm animals with the farm dog Pecci.
The breakfast was nothing special..just toast, coffee and sometimes some pastries.
I cannot put into words the beauty of the setting of this farm. Just sitting in the gazebo with a good glass of wine ,at the end of your sightseeing day, taking in the beauty of Tuscany was the highlight of our days in Tuscany. It is a good starting point to visit surrounding Tuscan villages too. So would def recommend this place for it's setting and the dog Pecci! Also try the suckling roast pig at latte di Luna in Pienza. To die for!

Stayed April 2010, traveled with family

About 50 km in the South of Siena, we can find that pretty place "La Fonte", near Pienza.
It is really a wonderful place, country place and vacation place, both side on side. It is extremely clean, the view from the location to the landscape CRETE. it is so beautiful. All around has got plenty of free area with flowers, trees etc. Children can enjoy the animals very near from the house and are safe. A very good served pool is waiting for the guests. Maybe one day, the outdoor jacuzzi will be heatet and can be used for wellness, then it is a perfect location.
Barbecue can be done everyday, sitting under very big castany-trees. It is a dream, really. The family are friends to the guests, very friendly and always busy. Some people enjoy the breakfast with service at the pool - just wonderful.
The landscape around the farmhouse ist very famous and many targets are waiting for a visit. A tipp for fotographers : Between St. Quirico and Pienza - lays the famous foto-mile with the most famous motives.
The rates for renting one of the appartements are ok, for that what we find there.

La Fonte is situated in a beautiful spot with amazing views. The atmosphere is tranquil, relaxed and very homey. Wonderful pool and very tasteful and comfortable apartments. We were there with family, including grand pa and small kids and had a super time. The owners are great and very helpful but not in your face ensuring you to really feel like you own the place.
Surrounding areas also very pretty with possibility of shopping for local delicacies (yummy wines and cheeses) and crafts. Plenty of culture and sightseeing in the area too.

We have stayed at La Fonte twice and we can highly recommend it to anyone. The family are extremely welcoming and each time we have enjoyed a fabulous dinner with them. The cottages/apartments are built in traditional stone with views to die for.
The swimming pool is clean and of a good size.
We highly recommend visiting Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino and of course Sienna.
The restaurants are fabulous in this area and in August the temperature is perfect, not too hot around 28 to 32 celsius.
Because you are away from the coast you do not have the crowds of people that you would expect in August.
Book early for La Fonte and do not confuse it with anothe Agriturismo just down the raod with a similar name.

Nick Simpson and family.

Dear Katia and family,
Again, we had a wonderful stay at La Fonte. It's so nice to be at La Fonte, to enjoy the view, the swimmingpool and to visit the beautiful places in the neighbourhood like Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino etc. We are looking forward to see you and your family again in July 2011 and also to meet our German friends again at La Fonte.
Lots of love from Belgium,
Bart, Annemay, Laura and Bas

I returned to La Fonte several times, because I like very much the hospitality of their owners and the location of the farm in the center of the most pitturesque locations in Tuscany.

The view from their garden towards Montalcino and San Quirico is splendid.
The house and rooms in traditional Tuscany style are inviting; so is the swimmimng pool on hot summer days.

And they produce superb red wine and olive oil !
