After many trips to Italy we found La Fonte and have been going there every chance we get! The location near Pienza is Tuscany at it's best!! The apartments are very comfortable, the family very helpful and kind, Pienza (about 5 minutes away) has wonderful trattorias, good wine,gorgeou views.........just great! Love it!

Room Tip: You need a car.

We are coming to "La Fonte" for holidays now for years and hope to continue for the future.
The appartments can be booked with breakfast, but for those who want to be timely unbound, breakfast can be fixed in the appartment's kitchen.
Towells are changed twice a week, the appartment is cleaned up and the beds linen are changed once a week.
There are lots of posibilities to sit outside in the shade for having dinner or breakfast, enjoying a glas of wine etc. The view is wonderful over the rolling hills of the Orcia valley over to Mount Amiata. With dawn the glimmering lights of the nearby villages on the hills are appearing.
The appartments are all very nice, cozy and charming. The little kitchen has everything to prepare a decent dinner. Everything is very clean.
The pool is a good choice to relax on hot days or to refresh after a long trip to the surroundings. Even a jacuzzi is available (not heated).
"La Fonte" is about 3 km away from Pienza and about 5 km from San Quirico d'Orcia. Both villages have shops and supermarkets to get everything for the daily needs.
It's an ideal spot to make half day trips or day trips to Siena, Firenze, Orvieto, all the other smaller but old and historical cities nearby, or even drive to the seashore (e.g. Monte Argentario) to spend a day on the beach.
Everything was in an optimum, only the pans and pots in the kitchen were of very poor quality and battered. In the meantime we bring our own pans and pots with us.

From the moment we pulled into the driveway on the road from Pienza we knew we had discovered Paradise. La Fonte is beautiful, quiet, romantic, and wonderful. Katia, our hostess, greeted us in a warm way and made us feel welcomed from the beginning. We found La Fonte to be an ideal location for touring the Val D'Orcia and can't wait to return again to this wonderful spot. Every evening, after our day of touring around the romantic old villages we returned to this idyllic spot to be lured by its beauty. We can't wait to return.

I have lead 5 different bike groups, cycling in Tuscany, and always staying at La Fonte. Every group was amazed at how beautiful La Fonte was, how friendly Katia and her family were to us, and how clean the apartments were, La Fonte will always be our first choice of where to stay while we're in that area. I can't recommend La Fonte highly enough.

The farm is situated in the heart of Val d'orca . So everyday begins with an amazing view of the surrounding breathtaking vista. Pienza is a mere 5 mins away and a good place to gather supplies for a picnic or some BBQ .
The apartment we stayed in l'aia was very well put together and captured the rustic Tuscan charm very well. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you needed to put together a Tuscan meal.
The grounds of the property are beautifully maintained. Our daughter had a wonderful time exploring the farm animals with the farm dog Pecci.
The breakfast was nothing special..just toast, coffee and sometimes some pastries.
I cannot put into words the beauty of the setting of this farm. Just sitting in the gazebo with a good glass of wine ,at the end of your sightseeing day, taking in the beauty of Tuscany was the highlight of our days in Tuscany. It is a good starting point to visit surrounding Tuscan villages too. So would def recommend this place for it's setting and the dog Pecci! Also try the suckling roast pig at latte di Luna in Pienza. To die for!

About 50 km in the South of Siena, we can find that pretty place "La Fonte", near Pienza.
It is really a wonderful place, country place and vacation place, both side on side. It is extremely clean, the view from the location to the landscape CRETE. it is so beautiful. All around has got plenty of free area with flowers, trees etc. Children can enjoy the animals very near from the house and are safe. A very good served pool is waiting for the guests. Maybe one day, the outdoor jacuzzi will be heatet and can be used for wellness, then it is a perfect location.
Barbecue can be done everyday, sitting under very big castany-trees. It is a dream, really. The family are friends to the guests, very friendly and always busy. Some people enjoy the breakfast with service at the pool - just wonderful.
The landscape around the farmhouse ist very famous and many targets are waiting for a visit. A tipp for fotographers : Between St. Quirico and Pienza - lays the famous foto-mile with the most famous motives.
The rates for renting one of the appartements are ok, for that what we find there.
