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!
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 had a great time staying here, and Barbara was extremely kind! She welcomed us with a delicious cake and offered us warm bread during our stay. The place is very comfortable and unique, and with a breathtaking view of the mountains of Italy's countryside. We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to an opportunity to go back!
We went on holiday to Italy and stayed at La Fonte for one week in the beginning of October. We were given a warm welcome by the hostess Barbara. Indeed she was very kind and helpful. She amazed us with her hospitality. Barbara gave us a lot of useful tips and nice gifts. Moreover the house was beautiful, the scenery was fantastic and the location was very convenient for get around. Actually, we are looking forward to going there again.
words cannot express how much of an amazing time we had staying at La Fonte. Barbara was so knowledgeable of the surrounding towns and has such a wonderful spirit. She was so eager to help with in everything. We were beyond happy we chose to stay at La Fonte. The neighboring towns (San Pancracio and Monte San Savino) were the most beautiful little towns we've ever seen with the most happiest and helpful people. Staying at La Fuente was probably the best part about our trip to Italy. The apartment was well equipped and had a cute little stove that looked like a closet! Barbara and Stefano were so nice and caring and we're great host. Barbara's parents were the most adorable couple ever! We hope to see Barbara at La Fonte again!!
Nous avons passés 8 jours en toscane chez barbara et stefano, des hôtes toujours souriants et sympathiques, disponibles a nous donner de précieux conseils. L acceuil a la fonte fut vraiment naturel et nou avons trouvé des presents a notre arrivée !
Ce sejour en toscane a ete merveilleux et apres nos visites quotidiennes il était plaisant de retrouver le havre de paix de la fonte !
Le pays est magnifique : des paysace a couper le souffle, une architecture riche, des oeuvres d art partout, une nature foisonnante, des habitants chaleureux et une nourriture généreuse. ...nous n avons pas tout vu ! Une prochaine fois peut être. ...
Barbara and her mom are superb hostesses. They do make you feel very special and go out of their way to accomodate all your needs and expectations. Thank you so much for all the gifts you gave us during our stay, it was very special! The appartment is very good and well situated in the heart of Tuscany. After few days in the buzz of Rome it was so refreshing to be in the countryside, the weather was superb and the view from the property is fantastic. I hope one day we will be able to go back to La Fonte for a longer stay. Merci du fond du coeur pour votre gentillesse!
La Fonte was a terrific place to stay. Situated in the hills of Bucine, the 2 (or 3) room flat was amazing in so many ways! The views were outstanding and so was the location. We really enjoyed our stay!!! We will definitely stay again when we visit the area!! Thank you Barbara for cake and your kindness!!
See you again!!
We had an amazing time at La Fonte. Barbara and her family were wonder guests with plenty of knowledge about what to see around the area. When we arrived she had three different types of fresh bread!
The unit is like a mother-in-law unit on the side of the house, above where the family lives. It's a complete apartment with a full kitchen, large bedroom, living room and bathroom. The bed was the best bed we have found in Italy so far on four weeks of traveling. Instead of the normal twin beds stuck together, it's a full queen bed. Barbara even helped put an internet cable in the apartment so we had amazing, fast internet the whole time.
You do have to pay for your own heating, but after a week we used about $40 euros of heat and we used it quite a bit because the week was cold. Otherwise, everything you need comes with the unit, including towels, sheets, and cleaning materials.
We would definitely come visit again!
Un lugar ideal para descansar y disfrutar de la Toscana: tranquilo, verde, ecológico, bonito, amplio... y además cerca de destinos turísticos como Siena o Arezzo.
La anfitriona cuida mucho los detalles. Más que recomendable!
Our family of six adults stayed here for 3 nights. The setting is gorgeous, the lodgings were clean and functional, there is a kitchenette in which we easily cooked some meals, and the place was perfect for our needs. The hosts were generous and available for all questions. We were less than one hour drive from Arezzo and Siena and a bit more than one hour from Florence -- it's an amazing location if you are in a car and want to explore these cities (and many smaller towns all over the area). It's also a great place to stay put, lay in a hammock, have a picnic, enjoy the view and the clean air, and pet their very sweet dogs and cats. We suggest printing detailed directions and including mini-maps (in addition to GPS), especially if you are arriving after dark. We highly recommend this lovely place!
La Fonte is a dream house!! It is THE most beautiful houses I have ever been too. Cosy, comfortable, well-equipped, beautifully done up, quiet.. are just some of the words that best explain the house.
Barbara was such a wonderful host, that she made our stay much more comfortable than we expected. She and her mother were very friendly and hospitable and also baked us some delicious bread and cake. They went out of their way to help us with various things and also suggested some awesome places to visit. :)
All in all, I would rate this house 5 on 5! Hope Barbara becomes a Super Host soon! :)
If you are visiting Italy and are planning to see the Tuscan region, you must stay at La Fonte.
