The place is a dream. I would recommend this place to anyone.. whether you are wishing to get a break from crazy rushed life, a wine and food lover, or a holiday-maker heading to the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Breath taking scenery, surroundings you do not want to leave, exquisite food, top service (always with a smile, never letting anyone down), and only the best - Antinori wines.. Booking wine tastings at Cantina di Tignanello and Cantina Antinori are a must ….. thank you Lauro, Michele, Elia and Valentina .. we had a wonderful stay celebrating a friend’s special birthday, and will definitely return for many holidays to come 🍷🍷🍷
Owned by the Antinori family, and located close to some of the best vineyards in the world! Beautiful and stunning surroundings. Staff were super friendly and polite and catered to our needs. The room was tastefully decorated and great views. However, there were two minor issues - 1) the shower leaked (poorly designed door and installation) and 2) the air conditioning was next to useless, making the nights uncomfortably hot! Make sure you bring enough mosquito repellent - we got bitten endlessly. Please see the separate review of the hotel restaurant.
We have been super happy to stay in the fonte de Medici hotel. Not only the place is beautiful and has an extremely rich culture around, but view from the hotel overseeing the vineyards is simply astonishing. The restaurant is delicious, it varies every days with some special dishes to try - congratulations I the chef. The biggest appreciation of our stay is the staff from the whole organisation, rooms, reception and restaurants they have been so nice and extremely attentive to our every need. The rooms are very personalised and gives you a strong feeling of home, also they are super practical with a small kitchen. Once again one of our best spot ever! Thank you so much to the team our stay was perfect!!!!
Near Chianti Valley, one of the best place to stay during a couple of day in Tuscany. Service and location are beautiful and also the resturant is good. The pool is amazing to brake the hot day and the rooms are very kind.
My wife and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary. This place is an incredible experience. The rooms are very spacious with kitchenettes and the most comfortable beds. The breakfasts were delicious with local produce and baked goods. The restaurant was top notch with an impressive wine list and menu. The well manicured grounds and pool were well appreciated in the Tuscan sun. The entire staff is extremely helpful, professional and friendly. I really felt like I was a family member visiting my Italian cousins during this stay. Highlight of the stay was our private cooking with Chef Duccio. One of the nicest people I have met anywhere. He was eager to share his knowledge with us and his passion for food is infectious. We highly recommend making the cooking class part of your stay. We are definitely going back, we just need to book it!…
Stayed here as a base for touring the region. Wine themed rooms were well decorated, clean and especially comfortable. Bistro on site made breakfast very convenient. If you like biking, some excellent roads throughout the wine region
When we first arrived it was like paradise. Beautiful, quiet, very pleasant acommodations. The restaurant food was excellent. Definitely 5/5. Then the next few days they had a large group on the property that unlike the typical quiet and considerate couples, were loud, acted like the entire place was theirs and generally were oblivious to others. They played extremely loud music blaring over the entire property till 11pm one night. When I asked at the reception of it was common to have these large groups they said "yes". I don't understand why the management would allow groups like that to ruin the experience of their lovely property. The staff were quite kind and pleasant. They had mountain bikes to borrow for free which was a nice surprise.
My partner & I have just returned from a 4 night stay in this beautiful place & couldn’t rate it enough! Set in the most beautiful setting & just perfect for a romantic couples break! We arrived late as our flight was delayed but were greeted by the lovely lady in reception & shown straight to our accommodation which we couldn’t fault! All so clean & a very comfy bed! The restaurant staff were more than friendly especially Lauro & Michael & the food was delicious! All the staff in every area couldn’t have done more to make us feel no welcome, even with an early flight we were given a breakfast bag to take with us full of delicious cakes & fruit! Would highly recommend & happily rate 5 out of 5!
My husband and I recently got married at Fonte de' Medici and could not have picked a better spot! The property is beautiful, the food is fantastic, and the staff is incredible. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. I would not change a thing about this special property. We are so grateful to everyone at Fonte. Thank you!
We stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 nights to celebrate my 60th birthday. As previous reviews the staff go out of their way to help you and they are all so friendly. The views are amazing, it’s hard to describe how beautiful the location is. The rooms are all different and we have to say the bed was the comfiest we have ever slept on. As previous review our only complaint was of the poor housekeeping although the room was clean enough the water in the fridge was not topped up daily. Only a minor moan and I’m sure if we had reported it they would have sorted it out. Would definitely recommend this beautiful hotel.
