My family stayed at Vila Fontelunga for a blissful week as part of our long-awaited first trip to Europe and without doubt this was an absolute highlight of our time away. From the time we got to the villa we were welcomed by Paolo and Charlie and Lucy Lui (the resident gorgeous dogs that we so wanted to bring home with us!), the offer to sit down to the most divine lunch in the sunshine...and our week in Tuscany was off to a fantastic start and did not stop! We were so warmly welcomed by Paolo and Philip and Sergio and the rest of the wonderful team that we did not want to leave- and we will most certainly be back! It felt like home immediately to us, and every detail has been thought of- right down from the most wonderful breakfasts and special dinners (feasts) with other guests, to directions to fabulous little towns in the surrounding hills (with Paolo on hand to steer you in the right direction!) to the comfort of our rooms and all the gorgeous thoughtful touches right throughout the villa. Paolo and Philip have created such a special place in one of the most beautiful locations in the world and are the most wonderful hosts- sharing this for a week was truly special for my family and I. We didnt try out the pool and the jacuzzi as it was just coming into spring...but will be back again for that! Just like the movie...life is indeed beautiful at Fontelunga!
