La Sorgente di Francesca
Ranked #4 of 10 Pontassieve B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 11, 2009

We just returned from a week-long stay at La Sorgente di Francesca. We couldn't have found a more beautiful spot, more lovely accomodations, or better hosts. Located in Pontassieve, not far from Fiesole and Florence, La Sorgente is nestled on a hilltop surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and absolutely gorgeous views of the Tuscan countryside. Monica and Massimo, a lovely young couple, are the consummate hosts. With the help of their friend who is a chef, they provide delicious gourmet meals created from ingredients grown on their farm, from wine to olive oil, to fresh vegetables from the garden. Even the water is pumped in from a freshwater spring on a neighboring hill! (Hence the name, "Sorgente") The rooms are boutique-style and gorgeous, there are large common rooms, a pool built into the hillside. Smells of lavendar and rosemary fill the air - to us it was like heaven! On top of it all, the prices are quite reasonable. Good alternative to a villa. A gem, and we think a well-kept secret - but maybe not for long!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Sorgente di Francesca bed and breakfast is a small borgo located in the gentle hills of the ancient village of Fiesole, just a few km from Florence and from its artistic and architectonic beauties.Il Borgo is composed by an ancient farmhouse with tower dated back to 1400, and by an elegant Villa whose basic structure maybe always dated back to the XV° century. In the farmyard in front of the farmhouse there are other two ancient buildings in stone where are Alexandra B&B and Monica B&B. Each B&B has a private outside area on the farmyard with umbrellas, tables and chairs.The entire estate has just been completely restored. A conservative restoration where the using of new materials has been reduced as far as we could, trying to recover the original features built hundred years ago. A conservative restoration linked to the most modern technologies to give our guests the possibility to live a piece of history with all the comfort of our times.The interiors of the bed and breakfast have been furnished with particular care combining ancient furnishings and accessories perfectly restored by old and experienced artisans with modern elements of fine design as the lights and lamps of the famous Terzani collection.From each part of the bed and breakfast, as much from the apartments as from the halls and the rooms you may enjoy a breathtaking view on the Tuscan hills. A magic place, where silence and tranquillity are just broken from the rumors of animals and from the dives of our guests into the beautiful swimming pool located just a few steps from the bed and breakfast.La Sorgente di Francesca also has 3 beautifully renovated holiday apartments in a perfect traditional Tuscan style. All apartments are located in ancient stone buildings adjacent to the farmhouse. La Sorgente di Francesca apartments may accommodate from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 guests. ... more   less
