“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This B&B is well situated in the middle of the picturesque village of Gaiole in Chianti. It is approached by a steep flight of stone steps; another downpoint is that there isn't any nearby free parking. The owner gave us a nice welcome and made a much needed cup of tea. Our room was basic but had all the ingredients - comfy bed, wardrobe and chair. The bathroom was small but functional. Breakfast in the morning was typical of the area - sweet pastry, toast and cereal; English guests will look in vain something more substancial - but remember, this is Chianti and what you're getting is authenticity. Overall,this is a good quality B&B & well priced - I think we paid around 70euro per room per night.

Room Tip: Not muchto choose between the rooms.

Gaiole in Chianti is a charming city and La Fonte del Cieco has the same spirit. La Fonte del Cieco is a warm and very comfortable ambient, in the main city square. The hostel is very charming, in a quite place and the room is clean and confortable. The breakfast is good and served in a small terrace.

This was our fourth stay at La Fonte del Cieco ... it does not get any better than this ... As always Valeria and Lucia were excellent hosts and attentive to all of our needs ... For price/quality we could not do better ... the rooms are charming as is the village of Gaiole ... whether you head to Gaiole for biking or wine tasting or relax, we recommend La Fonte 100% ... phil and rita neumark,san francisco ca

I spent 2 wonderful nights at this small BB in Gaiole in Chianti located in the walking district. Very charming, clean, personal attention, close to everything and reasonable priced. A great location for your vacation in Tuscany. There is also Wi -Fi Internet High Speed connection. - Valeria and Lucia are incredible hosts. Grazie Mille

The hotel is situated just off the main square in picture perfect unspoilt part of Chianti. The hotel room was clean and comfortable and staff helpful and accommodating. If you want to get off the beaten track then this is the perfect place to stay. You will need a car to get around but day trips can be made to most of the tourist spots nearby. There is also a fantastic restaurant just a couple of doors away.

It is not easy to travel with two young kids (4 and 6) and feel like home. La Fonte del Cieco felt that way. The room was perfect for the 4 of us. Laura, thehotel manager, made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed staying in the small village of Gaiole which gave us the advantage of walking in the town in the evening, doing our grocery shopping just 5 minutes away and enjoying the Italian ice cream from the village's center. During the day, most of the interesting places to visit in Chianti are only a few kilometers away so it was easy to go for a visit and come back when ever we were tired for a little rest, and then go off again.... really convenient. In the evenings there were excellent concerts and events going on in the near by castles or villages, very welcoming to children.
We really enjoyed the breakfast, served in a little terrace with a lovely pergola that reminds you that you are in the center of Tuscany; also a perfect place to sit for a nice glass of Italian wine after the kids went to sleep... no need for baby sitters, they are just above you.

What I haven't seen in the other reviews was how wonderful the service was. We had our wedding and they were great about accommodating family and friends and making the whole experience nice for everyone. From extending food service hours to changing rooms and dates around, helping with bags and older relatives, they took care of everything and graciously.
While the rooms are not fancy, they're comfortable and the location is perfect. The rates were also very competitive with options in the area.
