Coming here is the full tuscan serene experience. I've been going to Italy every year since I was 6 months old. I am very familiar with the traditions and the silence that is the countryside of Tuscany. This apartment was by far one of the best places I have stayed in. Manuela and her family make you feel very welcome and accommodated. The room has a cute little kitchen in it, and whenever you like you can make dinner there with some of the fresh herbs growing right outside of your porch! The pool was absolutely outstanding, it was very peaceful with a view of Tuscany. Pienza is only a short 10 minute drive from Fonte Bertusi. It's a beautiful little town with shopping and outstanding food. The breakfast in the morning is delicious from fresh fruit to a homemade croissant. Manuela provides guests with a book of places to eat, shop, and do different activities. She even set up a reservation for a cooking class only a short 5 minute drive away for me and my mother.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fonte Bertusi: There is no place more imaginary, and so more real, than this. You'll be greeted, upon arrival at Fonte Bertusi, by a great, colourful rooster in his cage. And it's like the heralding of a new day. Strolling around the grounds you'll find strange objects, like a huge set of eyes that peer out from the earth, a chair so high up that even on tiptoes you won't get a seat (it's good for higher thoughts though), or a dragon that time has transformed into a wagon... or vice versa. Encounters may be amusing for some, they may be magical or artistic for others and for others still, they relax the mind by bringing into perspective one's conscience and mankind's place in the world. ... more less
