The gardens are so well maintained and include a botanical herb garden. The roses are planted everywhere climbing on the lovely stone structures. We had a spectacular room #5 you feel like you are on the top of the world, the staff are most helpful and everything is so clean and maintained. Could not find one thing that wasn't perfect. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and that too is over the top. You can't go wrong booking a couple of days here, you won't want to leave!

Room Tip: #5. Corner room overlooking the landscape

My partner and I have just returned home after a three night stay at this hotel. The hotel was perfect in every way. Its setting and view are stunning. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and immaculate. The food and wine are delicious. The spa is quiet and relaxing. And the staff are friendly, efficient, helpful and very, very good at their respective jobs. I cannot find one thing to fault. I would like to recommend it to everyone but I also would like to keep knowledge of it to myself as it really is a gem to treasure.

Room Tip: We stayed in a classic room and it was very spacious and beautiful.

My daughter and I so loved our 2 night stay at Le Fontanelle. Unforgettable views, property and grounds beautifully appointed and maintained and an utterly friendly, courteous, well trained and helpful staff. My dreams about staying and experiencing Tuscany had been fulfilled then and there.
This is a classy, well run property, ready to welcome you with open arms into its comfort and luxury.
Oh, how I want to come back soon!

I recently spend three days at Hotel Fontanelle while on business in Tuscany. The hotel is perfect in every detail and is also very well run. Positioned on the top of a hill overlooking the Chianti hills, you will not want to leave. The staff is very friendly and helpful, you never feel that you are bothering them. The rooms are well tended and decorated. I was even able to have a relaxing massage while there. Unfortunately it was to cool to enjoy the pool, but I would suggest you make sure to plan an additional day to do nothing and just enjoy the hotel facilities and to relax.
The restaurant was also very good. One night I elected to dine in the bar area to have a more casual and varied dining experience.

Room Tip: Make sure you have either a small terrace, patio or at least a view room. An eastern facing room is...

We had a wonderful 6 night stay in a suite with a patio. Because of the way the hotel is situated you get a beautiful sunrise but no Tuscan sunsets. We can't say enough about the staff at this hotel who will go above and beyond to make your stay extraordinary. This is the kind of service that will make your trip perfect. We took advantage of two days with a chauffeur driven car to Chianti wineries which is worth the cost. The cuisine and food service was extraordinary. I ran the Ecomaratona Di Chianti nearby and it was a trek but I can't say enough about the graciousness of the Italians. Truly another great experience meeting with real Italian culture off the beaten track. Absolutely fabulous. The mini bar offer of free is limited to sodas. We took advantage of fab splits of French champagne which was pricey so be careful because the pricing is not displayed. This is a hotel with old world service not found in today's world. Well worth the trip. Every meal and bottle of wine perfect.

Dear Guest,

We thank you very much for your kind review.

We are pleased to learn you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Le Fontanelle and that you appreciated the skills of our Chef and our Concierge Staff, together with the wine and food experience you have been involved at the Hotel and around the Chianti region.
Regarding the minibar issue, we confirm that in Junior Suites (and Suites) only soft drinks from the Minibar are free during the whole stay, and this is mentioned both in the website (from where you booked your room) and in the booking confirmation sent by e-mail. Also, in all Junior Suites and Suites there is a minibar Menu where soft drinks appear above with the caption „free“, while all further drinks by payment are mentioned in the same unique page with their concerning prices. To be sure, we have just checked in all rooms and everything appears regularly. We are unfortunately not understanding from where the origin of the misunderstanding comes, but we remain at your complete disposal in case you would need further information on that.

Hoping to meet you again in the future, we send you our kind regards.

We stayed here for 3 nights because of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and the rating of the Michelin guide. The staff and the hotel certainly lived up to their ratings, and we had the feeling of being very well cared for. We were uncertain how to find the hotel, even though their description on tripadvisor gives the location exactly (km 14.7 on SP 408). This was because Google Earth has quite erroneous ideas about their location. We got within 1/2 km of their turnoff, and then called them. They were very helpful and gave exact instructions on how to find them from where we were.

While we were there, anything we needed or requested was supplied within 10 minutes. A kettle for boiling water, electric plug converters, a porter for the luggage, etc., etc. Prompt and complete service without extra charge. They gave good advice on going into Siena, including where to park and how to get there, and advice on driving around the Chianti region.

They one item I found confusing was the electrical sockets in our room. They had a system by which your keycard was used to control the lights and many of the sockets. It also allowed the maids to know when you were actually out of the room so that they could make it up. This was a very useful feature, but it created confusion when I was recharging my various electrical items. It's probably not fair for me to criticize them on this, since I didn't complain while they were there.

Everything except dinner was included in the room rate, free parking was provided under our building and internet access was totally open and free. The TV offered a generous selection of channels. We were amazed to find that they had Sky sports 3, on which we watched the Patriots-New Orleans NFL football game.

Stay here if you can!

Dear Guest,

We thank you very much for your beautiful review and again for having chosen Hotel Le Fontanelle for your stay in the Chianti region.
We are pleased you enjoyed the Service of our Staff and facilities at your disposal and are sorry because of the confusion you found regarding the electrical system: there is a black plug in in each room detached from the general electrical system that allow our Guests to leave their electrical items in charging without contrasting the main control system. Probably you did not receive a clear mention about that on arrival day. Sorry. At the same time we are happy you had the chance to see your favourite football match at the TV. 
We do hope to meet you again at Hotel Le Fontanelle and wish you all the best.

Kind regards.
