The furnishing have been carefully chosen using soft colours to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We do serve a continental breakfast in May, June and September. La Fonte is a traditional Tuscan country villa standing on the top of a hill overlooking olive groves, vineyards and the gentle rolling hills that stretch into the distance. Having spent nearly two years looking for somewhere we could call 'home', we discovered La Fonte. The house was still part of a large estate belonging to one of the oldest noble families of Tuscany and by pure chance the owners were thinking of selling the property. We have been offering hospitality to visitors from all over the world for nearly 30 years and the villa which is also our home, has become a second home to many of the super guests who have returned over the years. The apartments command breathtaking views over the rolling hills of what many believe to be the most beautiful part of Tuscany. They are ideal for guests looking for the peace of the countryside where the rich history of Tuscany is on their doorstep as well as the limitless wonderful restaurants close by, walking trails, wine farms where guests can go on tours of the wineries and taste the wines,visit fabulous castles and villas, wonderfully preserved medieval and renaissance towns and villages. Florence is 57 km and Siena 35 km from La Fonte The Tuscan coast is 75 km All the major tourist attractions are within easy reach of this ideally situated apartment. The house was a farm house designed in the tradtional Tuscan style with a 'tower' perched on the roof called the 'colombaia'. We completely renovated the interior creating four self catering apartments of varying sizes which all retain all their traditional features. On the ground floor there are two apartments both with original brick vaulted ceilings and on the first floor two more apartments which have ceilings of terracotta tiles supported by huge cypress beams. The walls are very thick which helps keep the apartments cool in the summer. San Gimignano can be seen perched on the hill 8 km from the villa from the avenue of cypress trees which leads the visitor to La Fonte. Certaldo is the nearest town where there is a great train service, good local shopping, a car hire service and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets The villa has kept its traditional atmosphere with the beautiful original timber beamed ceilings, terracotta tiles and vaulted ceilings.The furnishings have been carefully chosen with soft colours to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. There is a large, well cared for garden, a swimming pool ( 6 x 12 metres ) with sun beds and umbrellas, a barbeque and many quiet areas for guests to relax or have alfresco meals. All the major tourist attractions are within easy reach of these very centrally located apartments . We live on the property - English, Italian and French spoken - and are more than happy to help guests with any information they may need, book restaurants, museum tickets, wine tours, cooking classes, organise a taxi or car hire service, shopping trips, guided tours of major cities or train timetables. Dinners can be arranged on request. Credit cards accepted. Insect screens are on one window of each room in each apartment for guests' comfort. Wi-Fi and satelite TV is available free of charge. A laundry service is offered to guests who require their washing to be done and a breakfast basket can be brought to the apartment for a small extra charge but must be booked 24 hours in advance. There is free parking on the property. Linen is provided ( except swimming towels ) and changed once a week. The nearest town is Certaldo (4 km ) where there is good local shopping, supermarkets, a train station with an excellent service to Florence and Siena and numerous restaurants. The famous medieval town of San Gimignano is 8 km from the house and all the major tourist attractions are within easy reach of this very centrally located apartment . ifi is available.
