The farmhouse 'La Fonte' is situated in the heart of the Tuscany hills near Volterra and Saint Gimignano, only 1 km far from the little village with shops called Villamagna (you can go easily by walk). Outside there is a swimming pool, a children's play-ground, a BBQ area with space for eating and there is a big olive grove all around. The wi-fi connection is free. From April to May , for minimum 3 days stay, we organize , on request, one lesson a week about home made pasta.

The farmhouse is also surrounded by 5 hectares of country with a little wood and a nice little lake. There is also a parking area. The farmhouse is the ideal way to spend a quiet holiday and pets are welcome. The Farmhouse has an equipped kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and a own space outside (balcony/covered porch/private gazebo with table and chairs)....

Well equipped, clean apartment with wonderful views. The pool area is perfectly formed with enough sunbeds/chairs to go around. The apartments are family owned and we were made to feel very welcome. Volterra is a 20 minute drive away where we did our food shopping. If you are planning to visit Sienna or San Gimignano make sure you leave early... more
