In the heart of the tuscan countryside, through oaks and wild myrtles, Villa Fonteintanata lies harmoniously in the middle of uncontaminated nature, allowing its inhabitants and guests to experience a unique feeling of magic and peace. Villa Fonteintanata is the ideal place not only to appreciate the incredible beauty of the historical-artistic and natural heritage of the tuscan hinterland but also a corner where to set aside problems and stress, allowing you to dedicate some time to yourself. Fonteintanata was born in the early 17th century as a farm. Since the end of the 1900 the estate land was used for agricultural activities - mainly grain growth - devoting its services to the family of the Marquis of Casaglia.

Villa Fonteintanata is the ideal place not only to appreciate the incredible beauty of the historical-artistic and natural heritage of the tuscan hinterland but also a corner where to set aside problems and stress, allowing you to dedicate some time to yourself. Fonteintanata was born in the early 17th century as a farm. Since the end of the 1900 the estate land was used for agricultural activities - mainly grain growth - devoting its services to the family of the Marquis of Casaglia. A typical tuscan stone farmhouse divided on two floors: the ground floor historically used as stables, cellar and grain storage, whilst the first floor was inhabited by the farmers that worked the fields and tended the cattle. A magical place, where the dedication, love and passion for this land are secular prerogatives that are still firmly rooted in our souls and lifestyles. Today, Nicola’s son Nicolò, born and raised within these walls, runs the family business. A young, dynamic and ambitious new entrepreneur - in his eyes shines a strong desire to reinvent this corner of paradise. Through a combination of traditional agriculture to the principles of environmental sustainability, a 0km process production and total respect for biodiversity, Nicolò aims to give a new light to the company. His objective is to be able to grow products of very high quality, maintaining the values and authenticity of the italian culinary traditions, whilst always paying great respect to nature. Thanks to the incredible amount of possibilities that this business offers us we hope in the future to be able to satisfy the majority of our food needs, and to share this context with people that nourish like we do the will to pursue a lifestyle that respects nature and its biological rhythms.

Interaction with guests
We love interacting with our guests, if this is appreciated, in particular when it comes to cooking! Being in the middle of the countryside we suggest this place in particular to guests comfortable around animals. The villa is home to the owners and its animals; two very friendly bracco italiano dogs, cats, chicken and geese). The animals don't generally represent a problem, however in case they could be we will make sure to avoid as much as possible the interaction with them. The villa is also an active farm with its maintenance work. This might include seeing the tractor running in the fields at times. We guarantee the maximum respect and willing to make our guests spend an incredible vacation while keeping up with the other various tasks
