5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I was looking for a way to show Tuscany to my children that was a little different from staying in a hotel in Florence and renting a property in the Chianti region was the right decision. The place had a swimming pool ( that was cleaned by the owner of the property in mid week) and it was a big hit with my 12 and 9 years old kids. It was a 20km drive to Siena and about 1 and 1/2 hours of very beautiful scenic drive to Florence. It was a great week!

The apartment itself is great but it's the outside area which makes it such a lovely place to stay. Overlooking the Tuscan countryside and vineyards, you'll want to spend all your time outside. The pool is small but perfect for a couple who need to cool off from the strong sunshine. And you will cool off because the water is absolutely freezing. There's also a great little eating area for lazy lunches or suppers.

There's very little to do in the village but the restaurant down the road is brilliant. The name escapes me but it's family run and the food is great and the wine list huge.

The shop in the village doesn't stock much so a trip to the supermarket is essential.

The surrounding villages are lovely especially Radda in Chianti.. Sienna and Florence are close by too.

We loved our stay at La Fontanella. It's the perfect retreat. We've just had a baby and we'll be coming back with him very soon.
