The hotel has it's own wine cellar underground. You need a car to access the hotel as it is about 24 kms from Sienna. The hotel can arrange tours for you.
"Definitely Under the Tuscan Sun"
Where do I start' Exactly what we wanted on our two week Italian vacation. We held out on our budget with the other hotels to experience this hotel and the location. It is literally in the middle of no where, however this is what we wanted. It is a fantastic location to tour around Tuscany on day trips. We wished we had one more day to just relax and lay low and enjoy the magnificent pool. The room was exquisite, the grounds were amazing and the views were stunning. It used to be an old Tuscan farm but now is a very updated boutique hotel with a lot of history. The staff could not be more pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The breakfasts were amazing and the views from the terrace breathtaking. We are planning to go back for our 10 year anniversary. You can go on a biking excursion, a wine tour to local wineries and olive oil orchards, or a long drive stopping at a few Tuscan towns. There is something for everyone. The only recommendation I would make to the management of the hotel is to not make dinner so formal. It is Tuscany and everyone is in a very relaxed mood and a relaxed atmosphere. Dinner should have that mood. The dinner was good, but a little pricey for what it was. The service was outstanding!!! I just wish it was a little less formal. Gourmet food can be casual and fantastic. The first night we arrived we had dinner on sight. The other evenings we ate in Radda and one other local town close by. There are so many other food options, but we were tired from driving and just wanted to not drive anywhere the first night. I could go on and on about this hotel. It was truly special.
"The very best resort experience you could imagine in Toscana!"
We were traveling through Tuscany as part of our honeymoon after getting married in Germany. This was my first time to Tuscany, although my wife had traveled here several times. Hotel Le Fontanelle represents the very best of a five star resort that you could wish for anywhere in the world: 1. outstanding service 2. beautiful property 3. outstanding service did i mentioned the service' phenomenal! If you want a special experience during your stay in Tuscany, look no further. We would be thrilled to return and have told our friends!
"First class experience 20 km from downtown Siena"
Le Fontanelle has been constructed by a Lugano based businesswoman, Guiseppina Bolfo, on the site of a 13th century farm building and spring (fountain). This 5 star property will soon be a six star...I am sure. Elegant beautiful surroundings, fabulous dining and an evolving spa will complete the experience. It was my wife's and my first visit....but won't be the last. We enjoyed every minute in our upgraded Andrew Harper room over a splendid three day visit. The level of service and management of the property is leading the way to six stars. This hotel will cost a bit....but it is worth every penny.
"25th Anniverary Trip"
We were blown away by Hotel Le Fontannele. From the moment we arrived everything exceeded our expectations. From the beauty of the location and the facility itself, to every member of the staff and the quality of service. The food, the wine, the presentation, the decor, the art on the walls, the view from our room, the linen sheets on the beds, the perfect pillows!! Every single member off the staff that we encountered was incredible. From the parking garage to reception, from the restaurant to housekeeping. Best of all, we felt like we were staying in someone's incredibly beautiful, but warm and comfortable home. We had the privilege of meeting the owner on our way out and came to understand why Le Fontanelle is so special. She embodies the heart of the ones who brought her to life! Beautiful, warm, welcoming, and gracious. We cannot wait to go back! Side note: if one plans on visiting the surrounding area, the location of the hotel cannot be beat! Perfectly central for visiting central Tuscany!
