Reviewed 18 June 2014

There are so many titles that come to my mind for this wonderful Guest House . It is an oasis up on a hill at the Chianti region. But for this, I preferred to write '' A Wonderful Transition Shrine '' . It is such a secluded oasis, quiet,elegant,peaceful,pampering that if you are in a '' transition'' stage of your life , this is the place to stop the time, reevaluate your life and / or relationship and then start over again with a renewed energy , renewed principles, renewed soul . If you are tired of fast life , fast food , fast of everything , this is the '' shrine '' for slowing your life down .
My wife Oya and I had stayed at the house of the owner of this hotel , Ms. Bolfo ,WHO is such an elegant lady. The name of the house is Sole di Sesta,which is 5 minutes drive from the hotel.
Ms. Bolfo rents Sole di Sesta for families and we rented this house last year for a week ,stayed there with our in-laws,our son,daughter and their families. This is how we got to know this hotel.They make their own olive oil ,which is impeccable. ( They also make their own wine,which is so-and-so :-) The service at this hotel is impeccable , perfect . The young professionals at the front desk were very helpful and friendly , they suggested to us wonderful wineries which we went to for wine tasting. The restaurant of the hotel is great, they have a great menu and a very good wine list and a wonderful selection of Grappa .The outdoor pool of the hotel has a great view, ideal place for losing yourself in your favorite book . Breakfast at the Veranda is a great way to start the day . Do not omit to review their '' before and after '' albüm ,which is made of photographs showing the renovation of this hotel from an old historical building . If you really want to reward and pamper yourself and your beloved one , this is the place to go to :-)

Room Tip: Choose the room with a special private veranda .

We booked Le Fontanelle on recommendation of our travel agent. Expecting a baby we where looking for some quite place with qualitative infrastructure in order to be able to stay on spot some days and just relax.
It was fantastic. It probably was our best hotel experience ever. The service was amazing, the food exquisite, the surroundings and the views are breathtaking. We immediately felt we made the right choice. It is a perfect spot to spend some days to relax and enjoy small villages or bigger cities nearby. We have had the privilege of being surprised over and over again. From a bottle of wine in our room from own production, to a candlelight dinner romantic dinner, small attentions at breakfast and/or dinner, and so on. We always felt special, pampered but with class and discretion. I would say the biggest assets are their top personnel, the magnificent hotel and it's beautiful gardens and views, and the delicious cuisine.
Definitely worth the investment.

If you want to avoid crowds of people. If you want to have a feeling that your money is well spent, this is the right place!.
This is as close to the paradise as you can imagine. We were 6 couples and we all enjoyed very much. The lobby is extremly classy with elegant furnitures and accessories, the rooms are very cosy. Linen bed sheets are as white as it can be. Roses at the garden are very impressing. Wonderful staff, very friendly and kind. It is a must to try the dishes at the restaurant "La Colonna".
If we decide to visit Pianella again, Le Fontanelle will be our destination!

Room Tip: We stayed ay room # 14 Excellent! All the rooms has got a different view.

The gardens are so well maintained and include a botanical herb garden. The roses are planted everywhere climbing on the lovely stone structures. We had a spectacular room #5 you feel like you are on the top of the world, the staff are most helpful and everything is so clean and maintained. Could not find one thing that wasn't perfect. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and that too is over the top. You can't go wrong booking a couple of days here, you won't want to leave!

Room Tip: #5. Corner room overlooking the landscape

My partner and I have just returned home after a three night stay at this hotel. The hotel was perfect in every way. Its setting and view are stunning. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and immaculate. The food and wine are delicious. The spa is quiet and relaxing. And the staff are friendly, efficient, helpful and very, very good at their respective jobs. I cannot find one thing to fault. I would like to recommend it to everyone but I also would like to keep knowledge of it to myself as it really is a gem to treasure.

Room Tip: We stayed in a classic room and it was very spacious and beautiful.

My daughter and I so loved our 2 night stay at Le Fontanelle. Unforgettable views, property and grounds beautifully appointed and maintained and an utterly friendly, courteous, well trained and helpful staff. My dreams about staying and experiencing Tuscany had been fulfilled then and there.
This is a classy, well run property, ready to welcome you with open arms into its comfort and luxury.
Oh, how I want to come back soon!
