Foresteria Il Giardino di Fontarronco
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This lovely property was recommended by a friend and neighbor as a great base for visiting Tuscany after a European cruise. It lived up to our expectations and more! Our two bedroom apartment that we shared with my sister and her husband was very comfortable and the setting in the middle of a peach and apple orchard was awesome! Marian and Magdalena were wonderful hosts and on our last day prepared a delicious Tuscan meal for their guests. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for that special Tuscan experience in a quiet and serene setting. Thanks Marian and Magdalena for making our stay so special!

We just got back from Italy & have to brag on this B&B in Arezzo.This place was recommended & what a jewel it was! It sits in the middle of a peach & apple orchard.The rooms are rustic & charming like an old farm house,which it is.Marian & Magdelena were always helpful.They have a dinner there once a week & it was the best we had the whole time we were in Italy! Every morning a pastry truck brought fresh goodies to die for.The location was perfect for side trips to Florence,Siena,Montalcino,Montepulciano,Montereggiano,Cortona etc.In other words for all of Tuscany.We plan to come back.

We stayed at Foresteria Il Giardino di Fontarronco for two weeks in September, 2012. The location is terrific; it is in a fruit orchard just outside Arezzo, a short drive to Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Perugia, Firenze, etc. Marian, the co-owner, and Magdelena, her assistant, were terrific hostesses, always ready to solve any little problems that we might have and to make recommendations for places to eat or see. In the mornings, there is coffee and a sweet cake or crepes set out for the guests and a local baker shows up around 9 o'clock with breads, pizzas, and a variety of buns for sale. The rooms are furnished simply but well, the property is beautifully landscaped, and the pool is lovely - a real treat after a day of touring.

Room Tip: The apartments with stairs can be rather noisy as the wooden stairs transmit noise through the walls...

We stayed for a week this summer at Foresteria Il Gardino. It was absolutely spectacular and beautiful. Our host Marian and her staff were so very pleasant, welcoming, accommodating and helpful. The agriturismo exceeded my expectations in its tranquil setting amongst fruit orchards and vineyards. Our apartment was so quaint in Tobbacio 2, fully equipped to prepare meals and a little yard space outside with our own picnic table. The grounds including the pool were so well maintained and beautiful. I would highly recommend this agriturismo to any vacationer to Tuscany. It was also well located to many of the hilltops towns, the super mercato and fruits and veggies just across the road. All of which Marian informs you of upon your arrival. Make sure you put this on your wish list!

We spent two wonderful weeks there in the fall of 2008. Marianne and the staff are terrific and the Foresteria is so well located...everything that you want to see is within easy reach. Or just sit and chill by the pool! The local baker shows up every morning at 9 with his van loaded with goodies for you to choose from. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. This is a COUNTRY experience, so a car is mandatory. Stay here...you will NOT be disappointed.

We were excited for our Agriturismo in Tuscany. We stayed in Il Fienile - a one-bedroom unit - charming bedroom, bathroom, and sitting areal We had a place for our car and an outdoor table. Marian gave us all the information we needed - made us reservations for the Accademia - helped us with train info for Florence. Since we did not want to drive at night, we had a nice lunch at whatever place we drove to. When we came back to our lovely home away from home, visited the farm store down the road; got a bottle of wine and something for dinner. We have many fond memories of Foresteria.

Room Tip: there is a unil to please everyone. They are pictured on the website

We just returned from a week at Foresteria and it was wonderful. The accomodations were charming and the staff is extremely helpful and nice. The location is perfect for touring all of the hill towns in Tuscany and day trips by train to Florence and Rome. The views of the mountains and the abundance of roses adds to the magic of the place. We will definately return and bring our friends!
