I don't write the title of this review lightly as I've been lucky enough to stay in some amazing hotels, B&B's and guesthouses from all over the world in my time but what David and Toby have created here at the Fonte Martino is nothing short of breathtaking. You can see from the design and detail of the place and from talking to them that they have truly put all of their passion into making this Guesthouse a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are extremely spacious, clean and filled with mod cons yet have a warm homely feel about them. The outdoor areas also have that modern but homely feel and the place oozes character whilst keeping you relaxed. Upon check in I was a little earlier than I had communicated but this was not a problem for David and Toby and they gave me a warm welcome. I was shown around the property and then left to relax with a complimentary beer. The breakfast made by Toby each morning has a variety of cooked foods, meats, cheeses, pastries, yogurts and cereal. Everything I had was delicious, the cinnamon rolls were a particular delight which I mentioned to them both and when I returned later that day they had left a couple of extra ones in my room! They both greet you like you are family and talk about the day ahead and your plans - all these nice little personal touches make the experience extra special. Communicating with the guys before arriving they kindly booked dinner for me in Montepulciano for both nights and didn't hesitate to help when I asked one to be changed. They both know the area and restaurants extremely well and can give you many recommendations. You will definitely need a car to stay here, I did the walk into Montepulciano one night as I had driven all day and whilst pleasant going past the nearby vineyards it took around 35 minutes with some hills included which could prove difficult for some. Driving into Montepulciano is quick and easy from the property though and David and Toby can happily recommend the best car parks to use. Overall I had a fantastic stay at this mind-blowingly beautiful property with superb and conscientious hosts... and I've not even mentioned the views which deserve their own review! If you ever go to the beautiful town of Montepulciano, make the Fonte Martino your number one place to stay.…
This place was exceptional! The attention to detail in each suite from USB ports, high end branded shower gels, crisp clean sheets and additional touches were fabulous. The place was spotlessly clean. We even received welcoming drinks at our door. The hosts, David and Toby, are incredibly welcoming and helpful, providing great recommendations and bookings for the beautiful Montepulciano. Tobys quiches are not to be missed! I would highly recommend this place.
This place was outstanding. The hosts are brilliant and fabulous people. The stay was so easy the recommended and booked the best restaurants gave us tips for everything and we started the day with the best breakfast and chats. We have already recommended this place to people it’s a hidden gem, the specification and attention to detail was exceptional. The place was immaculate and the best products and brands of everything. Toby and David are so great and genuine. They also helped us out when we got into a difficult situation after we left. Will definitely return, this place tops some resorts that are world renowned. X
Everything was beyond expectations. The honest and friendly hospitality of David and Toby. The amazing view and surroundings, the quietness. All the comforts and luxury of the room. And then at the heart of Tuscany with so much possibilities for culture food and wine. We will definitely return! Joris & Susan
With my wife we spent two nights in this guest house in late August. Very warm and professional welcome by David and Toby. The venue is amazing with a great view on Montepulciano (famous italian village on the top of a hill). Only three suites so that you may feel at home but with a 5-star hotel service. Spacious and luxurious rooms with tasteful decoration and home automation (Amazon Prime). Private covered terrace . The breakfast is very good (quality products and tasteful food). Toby is a great cook! I enjoyed the peacefulness which reigns around the swimming pool. As the venue is slghtly in altitude (600m high) you can benefit from a cool breeze which make you really feel in heaven! I will no doubt return.
