We wanted to spend three nights in the Tuscan countryside and relax a bit after Venice and Florence and before heading to Rome.
Our travel agent recommended Le Fontanelle. When my husband and I looked up the hotel on the website, we were not that impressed. But do not let the website fool you (note to Le Fontanelle management, update and upgrade your website). The minute we drove up the private road to the hotel, we were smitten by the beauty and serenity of the surroundings.
Le Fontanelle is a fully renovated old 18th century farmhouse, and you can tell this was a labor of LOVE.
Setting and views: Breathtaking. You just cannot get enough of the beauty that surrounds you.
Service: Impeccable.
Concierge: Excellent
Food: Outstanding (albeit pricey).
Rooms: Comfortable, elegant, homey.
Location: hard to find at first, but once you are there, very easy to get to Siena, or visit the wineries in the Chianti region. P.S. do not try to use google maps to find it.
We just did not want to leave......

Take your breakfast on the outdoor patio/lounge with Chet Baker playing softly in the background as you look over miles of beautiful country, enjoying local ham, melon and wonderful pastries, or a perfect omelette. Wander the manicured grounds and enjoy the silence and the smell of the flowers. Relax by the pool. Enjoy a fabulous Vitello Tonnato for lunch with some delicious local wine. Have a nap after lunch and consider arranging a bicycle tour of the area, planning a trip into Sienna for tomorrow or just unwinding with a good book. Enjoy the thoughtfully selected art in the comfortable main rooms and then have Stefano mix you a drink in the well-stocked bar to prepare for dinner, a meal you will not forget, particularly if you let the chef show his skills with seafood. A Vin Santo and biscotti before you return to your very attractive room and the pure linen sheets on your bed. Sleep comfortably, knowing that Marion and her marvelously friendly and well-trained staff will be anxious to see you in the morning, to help you have another perfect day in this sublime setting. What a wonderful place!

We got married at Le Fontanelle in September 2013 and have nothing but praise for both the hotel and for all the staff. It is truly a Tuscan gem! Our wedding day was a wonderful combination of stunning vistas; outstanding food and drink; first class accommodation; and brilliant weather (which we are also crediting to the hotel!). In our opinion, what truly sets it apart from other wedding venues however, is the quality of staff and the level of service they provide. Marion, Salvatore, Annalisa, Monica and the rest of the team are extremely hard working and professional but also incredibly warm and welcoming. The result of this is that they have created a very personal, family-like atmosphere at the hotel which was exactly in keeping with what we wanted for our special day. In both the run-up to the wedding and on the day itself, they were incredibly efficient as well as flexible. They could not have done more to accommodate all our requests and wishes and as a result we got exactly what we wanted. I very much look forward to returning with my wife.
