About this listing
LA FONTE: Nice and confortable four rooms apartment at the first floor of our typical tuscan stone farmhouse. It has amazing view on the valley on one side and on the historical S. Pancrazio village on the other: its Rose Garden and its Memory Museum are open all year long!
In the apartment you will find books in several languages, movies and table games to make you feel comfortable also in case of (very rare!) rainy days!
We have a huge garden among olives and vineyards, with tables to eat outside, tanning places, barbecue and a setted camp for outdoor playing.
We have a space to park outside in order not to see cars while you are resting! (but you can take the car in if necessary)
We have a biological vegetables garden and kitchen for the best fresh eggs! We also arrange workshops on demand: traditional tuscan cooking or bread making for adults and kids!
We are in the "golden tringle of Tuscany": between Siena and Florence and Arezzo! Cortona, San Gusmè, Cennina, Lucignano and many other gorgeous places are near!
We grant you an informal but very gentle and friendly welcome: ask us for any kind of further information!
Price includes bath and bed linen; not including: gas use (4 euros per m3) and electricity (10 euros per week).
we organize on demand intere or short weeks and week ends
BASED ON TYPICAL ITALIAN COOKING AND A LITTLE BIT OF ITALIAN CONVERSATION! ask for info!
We presume people decide to stay in beautiful Chianti country because they love nature and its harmony and we all try to do our best to protect it.
We have a lot of space outdoor to enjoy and share but also space enough to rest in peace and absolute privacy.
We like cars to stay out from the garden: you can take it in if you need; we try to save energy and not to waste precious water; we love animals and we are happy to host your pets: just take off droppings from the garden; we do collect trash separately and we make "compost" with the organic; children are super welcome and we are happy to let them play in the setted playground under their parents responsability.
normal check in until 8 p.m.; 25 euros more from 8 to 10 p.m.; 50 euros more from 10 to midnight.
Looking forward to host and meet you!
Barbara went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and always made herself available if we had questions. The property was clean, comfortable and is located in a beautiful area with a spectacular view. We feel that we had an authentic experience staying in this part of Tuscany and would highly recommend La Fonte to anyone who wants to visit the Florence-Siena area.
La Fonte was a beautiful experience for our family after weeks of city stays. The accomodation was comfortable and authentic with lovely outdoor spaces to sit and enjoy glorious views. Barbara was a gracious host and her parents very friendly and helpful. We were touched by the cake greeting us on our arrival and then fresh hens eggs delivered to our door in the morning. Sitting watching the sun go down with a glass of Chianti and some local pecorino cheese and grapes at La Fonte will be a favourite and lasting memory of our trip.
The place is amazing. It is very quiet only the birds you can hear and the view is wonderful. Barbara and Stefano helped us with our holidays, the places to visit in tuscany and Florence.
La Fonte was the perfect spot for our group of 5's stay in Tuscany. Convenient for day tripping to wineries and nearby towns, and a wonderful, relaxing place to come back to at the end of the day. It's hard to beat watching the sunset from the garden with a glass of wine! Our hosts were gracious and helpful. We did a cooking lesson with Barbara and her mom, which was fantastic. We were sad to leave!
Notre voyage en Toscane était formidable! Notre hôte, Barbara, est tout simplement génial. Nous avons eu un accueil chaleureuse tout au long de notre séjour avec des petits plus (des œufs frais du jour, des bouquets de fleurs, des conseils personnalisés sur les visites à faire) qui a fait la différence. Le lieu est magique! On est ravis!
La Fonte is a little peace of paradise on earth, very calm, a beautiful view, lots of room for children to play and the most marvellous hosts you can imagine. We were welcomed as if we were visiting friends or family, with homemade bread, cake and fresh eggs. The communication with Barbara was top, she was always there to help. I can only recommend the cooking class with her and her mother, we had lots of fun preparing pasta. I only hope that we will have the chance to go back one day. Thank you Barbara and Stefano!
Non seulement La Fonte est un endroit idéal pour les vacances...un cadre exceptionnel, calme, avec de beaux paysages, proche des belles villes de Toscane de Sienne, de Florence,etc...mais ce qui fait l'atout majeur de La Fonte, c'est Barbara et sa famille.... un accueil chaleureux, familial avec des petites attentions de tous les jours (les oeufs frais, les légumes du jardin, les gateaux etc.) qui font qu'on se sent chez soi! Leur gentillesse, leur simplicité, le fait que Barbara et Stefano parlent parfaitement le français, leurs conseils,etc....font que les vacances ne peuvent que bien se passer...même lorsqu'on casse le turbo de la voiture le 1er jour, ils trouvent une solution....on leur sera d'ailleurs toujours reconnaissant de leur aide qui nous permis malgré tout de découvrir la magnifique région de Toscane!
En résumé, on recommande chaleureusement d'aller faire un tour chez Barbara et Stefano et de déguster en passant les délicieuses lasagnes et pizza de la maman de Barbara!!
On pourrait en écrire encore beaucoup...mais le plus simple c'est d'y aller :) !
Un dernier mot pour nos hôtes....merci pour tout et à très vite du côté de Montpelllier :)!
Christine, Arnaud et Ilan
About the Host, La
La Fonte is a tuscan family who moved from Florence to live in this magnificent place.
I am Barbara: the person in charge for welcoming hosts and promote our little farmhouse.
Our purpose is to retrieve the farmhouse and the land around to discover an ancient and new sinergy with Nature.
We work with schools and kids in order to promote the awareness of sustainability.
We just started to host people in the farmhouse: we like so much to share "our" Tuscany with people from all around the world! maybe because we find the place where we live so amazing, we would like the others to get all that beauty too!
