Antica Fonte Residenza di Siena
Ranked #60 of 126 Siena B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 16, 2010

What a beautiful, relaxing place. Could not fault one thing about Antica Fonte and the gracious host Giuseppe. He cannot do enough for you. The apartment/small house had everything. Even though we had a hire car we caught the bus at the end of the street into the old Siena town...to come back to our home away from home at the end of the day was bliss. We would cook up beautiful meals with the fresh produce that we had purchased from the markets and sat on our balconey with a bottle of Giuseppe's home made wine and watch the sunset. Bliss!

We booked only one night here after travelling from Lucca and visited Siena the following day on our way down to Umbria where we were staying for a week. I wish we could have stayed for longer. We had a gorgeous little appartment with a huge bed and lovely little kitchenette/lounge and a great bathroom. The appartment was clean, comfortable and full of character, and there was every attention to detail. The kitchenette was well stocked with wonderful italian coffee and a breakfast pack with muffins and breads. The owner was so welcoming and had left us a note on the reception door as we arrived late, but he didn't turn a hair and arrived to check us in and show us around the appartment. It was located in wonderful countryside just a mile or so from Siena and was so quiet. I don't think I had slept so well in ages!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Antica Fonte. The pictures online do not do it justice. We were pondering if we wanted to stay closer to Siena (within the city) but I am glad we chose Antica Fonte instead. It is close enough to Siena to enjoy, but far enough away to relax in the jacuzzi at night, enjoy your meal in your own private courtyard (made from your own well equipped kitchen) and watch the sunset. We were able to do laundry as well. No need for a/c at night (but is available for extra charge). The proprietor spoke little english, but we managed just fine and he is truly about the most gracious host I have ever met. We had trouble with the washer/dryer (my fault) and I just ended up putting the clothes outside to dry. After a day of sight seeing we came home to find all our clothes dried and neatly folded! He was not intrusive, but just genuinely kind and generous...if you have a car this is the place to stay! I know a bus stop is just down the road, minutes away, but I cannot speak to that as we did not use the bus.

The hotel fairly new and it is owned by a charming couple who built incredible villas with an unbelievable view of Tuscan landscapes. The hotel is 10 minutes driving from Siena center and is located in an old wine and olive farm. Ideal if you are driving to get away from city crowds, parking is free. The villas are fully equiped with kitchen, (2) flat screen TV's and very clean. You can have breakfast at the terrace overlooking Tuscan landscapes. The owners are very nice and take care of every detail to make you feel home. This was a very pleasant surprise to all of us with incredible value. If you don't mind staying a few minutes away from the city, this is the best choice you will probably find.

Ours was a one night stop after visiting Siena and on the way down South. The surroundings were beautiful. Great patio. Hot tub. The apartment was large and well appointed. The facilities were way beyond our needs (staying only one night). All the modern amenities: full kitchen, dishwasher, clotheswasher. Had we known, we would have used Antica Fonte as home base for our Tuscan explorations and stayed at least a few more nights. It is not walking distance to Siena. So if you stay here, I would strongly recommend having wheels. Also, they do not provide breakfast (but do have the fixings for espresso) so bring your own food. A great value, in lovely surroundings, with all the comforts of home.

This Bed and breakfast was absolutely amazing! It really made visiting Siena that much better for us. It had everything you could ask for-even a spa bath! Inside was extremely clean and there was a beautiful outdoor verandah where you could have breakfast. It is located about 5km from central Siena but this did not worry us at all-it added to the wonderful Tuscany experience-being located in a lovely open, quiet space. The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful. My partner and I highly recommend staying at Antica Fonte Residence!

A set of suites, with cooking facilities, in a former farmhouse on the hills near Siena.

Very few minutes' drive get you the quietest of the nights and countryside views.

Newly, smartly furnished. Breakfast and bottled water included.

Very hospitable owners, have been flexible with us checking out more than two hours after the requested time.
