Farmhouse
Il Fonte is a sympathetically renovated farm building of natural local stone and chestnut beams, set on its own secluded plot of around 1 acre, with woodland, olive trees and panoramic views of the hillside. A peaceful, unspoilt location, yet within strolling distance of two small local shops, three bars/restaurants, historic church, doctor's surgery and post office. Fully-equipped kitchen with spacious dining and living areas, and a large covered terrace for al fresco dining. Central heating throughout (geo-thermal steam). Ideal for families or groups looking for a peaceful break and a base for exploring the delights of Tuscany and beyond at any time of the year. Florence 85km; Siena 55km; Volterra 30km; San Gimigniamo 55km; Baratti (coast) 70km; Arezzo 115km; Pisa and airport 85km.

Secluded Tuscan Treasure
We’ve recently returned from two weeks staying at Il Fonte and enjoyed a really lovely holiday. The house is very spacious and well equipped, a real home from home. The views around the property are stunning, and outside there is always a sunny spot to sit, relax and soak up the scenery. Although the house is secluded it is only a 2 minute walk to the village square where there are a couple of friendly restaurants which also sell a small quantity of groceries. We spent our days either relaxing around the house or driving to the many beautiful hill top towns around the area. Volterra is within 40 minutes, Sienna 1 hour and the coast around Baratti is also reachable in 1 hour. All in all, a gorgeous house in a beautiful setting.

Beautiful house in gorgeous location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and unusual house in a lovely setting. The house was well equipped and full of quirky character; it didn't take long for us to relax. We spent our days either sightseeing or relaxing locally. The local bar/restaurant owner at the top of the lane (Stefano) was very friendly and guided us to the best spots to swim in the nearby river. A truly peaceful and unspoilt location. We had a great holiday and would highly recommend.
