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!
We had an incredible stay for 10 days at Barbara's lovely farm house during the Holidays around Easter. The residence is very well located between the incredible towns Siena and Arezzo. By car you easily reach all the nice little towns of southern Tuscany.
Barbara and her family welcomed us very warmly and almost all the days we received a little something to eat. Barbara was also absolutely helpful for detailed tourist informations.
The huge garden is ideal for families with children since their are playgrounds and animals.
Barbara and Stefano are the ultimate hosts. Their apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped in a beautiful location but it is their hospitality that is even more outstanding. They are a lovely family and communication with Barbara was excellent. They went out of their way to provide information, a table full of homemade products and they even delivered us a bottle of Prosecco for New years eve. A great place with lovely people.

the all femily was realy realy nice and kind. (also the dogs and the cats)
when we arrive to the apartment fresh eggs and homemade cake was waiting for us. the place is amayzing - very recomended!!
Nous avons passé deux merveilleuses semaines à La Fonte. Barbara Stefano et toute la famille ont été vraiment accueillants, généreux et aux petits soins pour nous. Nous avons eu droit à du pain fait maison, un gâteau, des œufs frais et des légumes de leur jardin délicieux. La maison est très belle et la vue sur la campagne toscane est magnifique ! Notre fille de 5 ans était très heureuse de jouer avec les animaux (chiens, chats et poules). La situation géographique est idéale : entre Sienne et Florence, proche de la route du Chianti, d'Arezzo et de nombreux petits villages superbes. Nous recommandons sans réserves ce logement !
Although we arrived in the night and did not find the house Barbara was so kind to pick us up in the village. The apartment is clean and tidy, the garden is beautiful and the view is indeed spectacular. Barbara prepared us a delicious cake upon our arrival and shared with us all information we needed. The apartment was a good base for us to visit the sights nearby.
Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse à La Fonte : la maison est superbe, le paysage époustouflant , et la region magnifique (Sienne,Arezzo,Florence et plein d'autres villages ravissants facilement accessibles). Barbara et Stefano sont des hôtes incroyablement chaleureux et généreux.
Ça a été très difficile pour tous les cinq de les quitter!
Leurs chats,chiens et poules ont ravi les enfants et leur jardin a été leur terrain de jeu pendant une semaine.
Nous avons pu beaucoup échanger avec Barbara et Stefano qui parlent couramment français et anglais , ce qui est une grande chance et a beaucoup apporté à tous les cinq.
Des gens rares dans un cadre exceptionnel....nous ne pouvons que vous recommander d'y aller!
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!
