Our family of 4 originally had a booking for 2 nights but we liked the place so much we were lucky to be able to extend our stay by one more night. We drove to the hotel after picking up our car rental from Florence airport. Driving in Italy is not easy so you have to do your homework and the signs and roundabouts especially on non autostrada routes were immensely confusing. There are a few possible routes to the hotel but I would recommend you stick to the directions provided on the website. Upon arrival after about an hour we knew immediately that our effort was worth it. Set on a hill in what used to be a typical Tuscan farm, the hotel has 25 rooms and over the years has added luxuries such as covered parking, indoor and outdoor pools, spa/sauna facilities, and an outdoor dining area with fantastic views of the Tuscan hills. We were given rooms 24/25 which had 2 bedrooms, living room, and an outdoor area. Non alcoholic drinks in the minibar were included along with a complimentary bottle of red wine from the property's own winery. We had breakfast every day and several dinners - the food was high quality. I could not fault the service either. The aircon in our small bedroom was making a unusual sound and it was tended to by the next day. In addition to swimming and just relaxing there were bikes which you can take out for free so we did some biking around the property which was nice. I am told that the hotel is opening more rooms shortly and is currently constructing even more rooms on another hill which we could see from a distance. The location overall is excellent requiring a 20 minute drive to Siena and a slightly further journey to San Gimignano. Italy is super busy in the summer, so this kind of hotel retreat was just perfect for us. Price is high but you will get your money's worth.

Dear Guests,
Thank you very very much for your beautiful comment and also for having extended your stay with us. We remember you wanted to extend for two additional nights but we only had availability for one; sorry again but the hotel was complete.
We are glad you found our property worthing and hope to have a future occasion to welcome you soon again.

Warm regards.
Marion Winski
General Manager

My Mom and I stayed here for about four days. I searched high and low for the perfect location and found it here. The grounds are immaculate, the staff is incredibly attentive and professional and the food is fantastic. The view of the Tuscan countryside from the pool is divine. This was by far one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. A few tips: the hotel is not right in Siena, so if you're looking to be in Siena book elsewhere. This hotel is a bit secluded but that's why it's so magical. Also, it's not kid friendly so don't bring children if you don't have to. We enjoyed the fact there were no kids there. As for food, unless you drive into town your only choice is the hotel but every meal was well worth it. Great place. I'll be back.

Dear Guests,
Thank you very much for your comment.
We are glad to learn that you and your mother had a nice stay at our property and that you count our Hotel as one of the most beautiful places you have ever stayed.
We are honored about that. Thank you!
Regarding your information about Siena, yes, it is 30 minutes driving (20 km) but we also offer a complimentary shuttle to Siena centre to let our Guests avoid traffic and parking issues.
Also, in reality, our Hotel is absolutely children friendly. Probably there were no children during the period you stayed with us, but even if they are, are all so sweet and well educated that in some cases you don't hear them.
For exploring the Chianti region, wine tasting and dining at external restaurants, there are many alternatives also at about 10-15 minutes driving. If you don't have a car, our Concierge Team will be happy to assist you and according to other Guests they are very helpful to discover the surroundings.
At your disposal for any information you might need, I personally thank you again for having chosen us for your stay in Tuscany.

Warm regards, Marion Winski
General Manager

Staying at Hotel Le Fontanelle is an almost surreal experience as it is a place of pure bliss. It's casual elegance, the soothing beauty of its surroundings, and the personable hospitality of its highly professional staff make each minute seem like a minute spent in paradise. If you want to treat yourself and your loved ones to something truly exceptional, this is the place I would recommend!

Room tip: I believe all rooms have a special charm of their own.
