“Paradise on Earth !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Paolo, Roberta and Sergio went all out to make our extended 3 week stay at The Villa feel like an amazing dream. We took the full 300yr old villa with all its modern amenities. Though the AC's were not very effective on a few hot Tuscan days, the pool, hot tub and tennis court were all kept in mint condition... The stack of towels near pool & ipod's loaded with music were both great touches... Their restaurant recommendations and sight seeing were 'never' wrong !

We rented the whole villa for a week long family reunion and I would highly recommend the villa for such an event. The villa is located near a tiny village with little of interest, but within 30-40 minutes there are many wonderful hill towns to explore. Day trips to Florence and Siena are also easy. The best thing about the villa is the outdoor space. The pool is great, the view over the valley wonderful and as the weather was mostly good we ate dinner outside each night. What a great setting. There is enough space that we managed some family football each night before dinner. The folks at the villa were really great. Can't say enough positive things about Sergio and the ladies who were there each day. The decor of the villa itself was not great in my view. If it was me I would get ride of all the bright walls and go for a more pastel look..the kitchen is nice but the furnishing in the main area could be better....we ate at the villa most nights and the food was good,but not cheap..dinner for 13 was 700euros..they will let you fix your own if you want, which we did one night for a total cost of 120 euros.....overall a nice venue for hosting a family event....

Dear Bill , thank you for your review , I m pleased that you and your family had a good family reunion . Philip will be pleased to know that you like the outdoor space and the new pool and Jacuzzi .
Sergio as well I know is a great asset for Fontelunga as all my other staff .
Sorry to hear that you do not appreciate the interior design but really I think at the end is a question of personal taste .
As for the meal of course it would be less expensive to prepare , cook and serve your own meal but we had 5 people staff and all the wine was included as well but again we really appreciate that you had a good time at Fontelunga

Another summer is arrived and we decided to detox and relax again in the Tuscan countryside at Fontelunga hotel and Villas . this time we rented one of the self catering independent villas , 2 bedrooms villa Gallo. We did the check In at Fontelunga and after a lovely welcome drink , Paolo took us over to the Villa , 2 minutes drive from the hotel in a different smaller and intimate valley.
the villas is a smaller version of Fontelunga ! lovely details everywhere , fully equipped kitchen with a Nespresso coffee machine as well.
the villa share the pool with the other cottage , villa Galletto but we felt very relaxed being only 6 of us in total around the pool. the rooms have AC with the main sitting area has a ceiling fun and a huge glass door that can be totally opened and so the inside and outside area become one. Paolo and Philip thought of a great dining area outside with a BBQ and when we arrived we had a generous food hamper complimentary waiting for us in the kitchen
My son wanted to use the tennis court at the hotel so we walked daily to the hotel via the fields of sunflowers( more or less 15 minutes)and somedays we had lunch at the Villa and joined the dinner party on the Friday , delicious food and fun evening with guests from all over the world.
we will come back for sure to this little paradise

Having got married at Villa Fontelunga a few years ago, we are now regular visitors to enjoy a few days of rest & relaxation in the Tuscan sunshine & scenery.
Paolo, Philip & the staff at Villa Fontelunga really do make everyone feel like the property is their home from home - after a day out exploring the local sites, there is warm welcome and a cold drink awaiting you. Weekly dinner parties are a great opportunity to get to know other guests - we have been to our fair share and have always enjoyed them. (Just don't plan an early start the next morning if you like a glass of wine!)
The pool area has just been refurbished and looks great - the addition of a jacuzzi is a real plus
We hope to have many more trips to our favourite corner of Tuscany.

Again this year I have to say that I adore to be in Fontelunga. Everything is perfect. The place, the relax of the beautiful views, the food, the silence... It's a magical place to feel like in heaven, perfectly comfortable and amazingly unique. We know a lot Tuscanny for work and we always come back to Fontelunga. Just GREAT!

The Villa Fontelunga was by far the best part of my wife and I's recent trip to Italy. From the villa to the staff everything was exceptional. They make you feel like you are right at home and anything you need or any question you have they accommodate them all. If you asked me one place to stay in Italy this will always be the first place I recommend!

My husband and I just came back from a week in Sicily and 9 days in Tuscany and by far Fontelunga was the highlight. (we stayed in 5 different places on our trip!) This is what you dream of when you envision a villa in Tuscany. The villa itself is decorated to perfection, elegant ,chic but not stuffy! You fell as if you are in your own home with good friends. The landscaping and view are beautiful. Make sure to have dinner at the villa where guests mingle for a delicious 3 course meal. Most important was Paolo, one of the owners. He is warm,friendly and so helpful. His book of suggestions in the area and directions are better than any guide book, as well as his recommendations for restaurants. I also can't forget to mention Charlie, a norfolk terrier, who is a wonderful addition.
We will definitely go back to Fontelunga and will bring all of our friends! Thank you Paolo!

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to be upgraded to cottage suite which was separate from the main house,but I do...
