“Superb Tuscan Villa, Ideal location, Wonderful host .....”

We stayed a week at this beautiful villa in the Tuscan countryside. La Fonte met all our expectations and was ideally located for day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, the Chianti area, and the various Tuscan hill towns. Maria, our host, is a very kind and gracious person and was most helpful in recommending nearby restaurants, shopping and interesting sights to view as well as providing directions to these locations. Our apartment (Gelsomino), one of four, was clean, comfortable and as Maria's advertisement correctly states "is refurbished to retain all the traditional features of a Tuscan country house." It was spacious and ideal for a couple or a single traveller. The other three apartments are two bedroom units which would suit families or couples travelling together. The garden is well kept and provides a number of quiet and private areas to sit, read or just enjoy the surrounding countryside. We would definitely recommend La Fonte to anyone who is planning a trip to Tuscany.

“Great location, lovely property, gracious host - a lovely week away”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed for a week at La Fonte and it was everything we imagined it would be - dream location, away from it all, but near enough to amenities. All local sights are charming and the area was less expensive than we imagined.
Maria the owner is very gracious and helpful and we would heartily recommend this property to anyone wanting a restful, away from it all week with a bit of sightseeing.

“Favorite place in Tuscany”

My husband and I have stayed at Maria's lovely property during our 3 visits to Tuscany, and we are returning this May. We always stay in "our" ground floor apartment with the lovely terrace. The 4 apartments are part of an ancient building that has been lovingly remodeled. We enjoy a spacious living/dining room and separate bedroom with french doors that open to our own private terrace with lovely views of the surroundingTuscan hills. It is a very peaceful place, and the grounds invite walks along a cypress lined road. Our visits in early spring are too early to enjoy the pool, but it would be very inviting in summer months. Maria is a wonderful, gracious hostess and we always look forward to returning. The nearby town of Certaldo has a funicular to the old city, and San Gimignano, our favorite town in Italy, is also a short drive.
