Foresteria Il Giardino di Fontarronco
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is my first ever posting to tripadvisor but I had such a great experience at Foresteria, I felt I just needed to post. The place was beautiful and we had a great time. We stayed in the BETTO apartment. It didn't have air condition but it was perfectly fine with the cool evenings, as it was enjoyable sleeping with the windows open, we slept really well! It was very convenient that a pack and play was provided for our 21 month to sleep in. He loved the open grounds of the property, having a open grass area for our adventurous toddler to run around safely was great! The pool was wonderful to relax in after a long day trip out! There was a bread truck that delivered fresh bread and pastries/croissants in the morning for a great price. Marian was a great host, always very approachable and happy to answer any questions.

I'll just echo the other reviewers here... This is a beautiful place and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in il feniele ( spelling? ) and our friends stayed in beto. The air conditioning in il feniele was nice to have but not really necessary with the cool evenings. The bread truck delivered great breakfasts every morning, and Marian was an excellent host with great tips.

We first visited Foresteria Il Giardino di Fontarronco back in 2002. My husband and I had such fond memories of the farmhouse that we wanted to go back with our children. We spent 6 days recently relaxing in apartment Gostino which was perfect for 2 adults and 2 children as it was very spacious and clean. The kids loved running around exploring, playing soccer and swimming in the pool. We loved to sit outside of an evening an enjoy the wine or food we picked up during the day when visiting other towns.

We explored the towns of Siena, Montereggioni, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Arezzo and Lucignano which were all wonderful. The kids favourite was Montalcino as they walked the fortress and pretended to be knights in medieval times.

A big thank you to Marian, Francesco and Magdalena for their hospitality. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were always helpful when suggesting places to eat or visit in the local area. Magdalena's sweet treats she baked were delicious too! (the kids polished off her chocolate cookies for breakfast).

Our kids said that the farmhouse was the best part of their holiday in Italy. We hope to return one day when we visit Italy again.

This is a great place to stay if you want to explore the cities and villages of Tuscany. Set in the beautiful surroundings of the fields of fruit trees, this is a little piece of heaven. The apartment we stayed in was just for 2 people but was quite spacious with a living area, a bedroom and a bathroom. It was furnished in a rustic style but had everything we needed. Sitting outside our apartment with a bottle of wine and some local cheese and fruit in the evening sunshine....what could be better? Marianne was an extremely welcoming and helpful host and her assistant Magdalena equally welcoming and a very good baker! The only disappointment for us was that as it was a quiet week for visitors, the restaurant was not open at all and we had been looking forward to it, however Marianne gave us some excellent recommendations for restaurants in nearby villages where we enjoyed delicious meals. The bread man at 9am is really useful. As well as bread for breakfast, we bought doughnuts to have at lunchtime when we only wanted a snack. We really enjoyed our stay at the Foresteria!

Wonderful! What you see on the website is what you experience. Rustic, old world feel yet, clean and functional. Great staff. Great pool. Adore the truck that comes daily delivering bread, pastries, and pizzas for your breakfast or mid afternoon snack. I admit, I was picturing a horse or donkey drawn cart but, alas, it is merely a mini van with doors that slide open to reveal the array of goodies.
The hosts are warm and gracious. Great value for the money. The optional dinner was fantastic.
P.s. I got injured and had trouble getting to my upstairs apartment/ house where our group was staying. They were gracious to move me to a downstairs apt, for no extra charge.

Across the years we keep on coming back to Il Giardino di Fontarronco, and there are powerful reasons to do so. First, its location in Tuscany is so central that it allows us to hop from La Foresteria to Civitella, Arezzo or Cortona in less than 30 minutes. Other Tuscan gems can be reached within 40 minutes.

Then there is the comfort of the facilities, tastefully decorated "a la toscana." The rooms, the bathrooms, the livings, the kitchens are ample. And then there is the 500 hectare orchard of peach, pear and apple trees. Don't miss their blossoming in april!

Most importantly, the personalized attention that you get at La Foresteria is just unparalleled. Marian and Franceso and their personnel help us wholeheartedly time and again, grilling a delicious carne alla fiorentina, helping is when our children came down with the flu, or taking us on a breathtaking flight above the Tuscan hills.

We can recommend it 200%. Nadia and Hector Medina, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Room Tip: All appartments are different in size, but the comfort is the same. Our favorite is Il Nonno Duilio...
