My husband and I stayed at La Fonte for 10 days. It was our first trip to Tuscany and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. First and foremost, our hostess Maria was absolutely wonderful. She answered all our questions with care and patience, her recommendations were tops, she booked museum tickets, restaurants, wine tours and more...

We recently stayed here for a week given its location between San Gimignano and Certaldo. We have stayed in a number of villas in italy and found this to be one of the best. Its easy to find and just far enough out of Certaldo, you really feel like you are lost in Tuscanny. The views from the property are...

We just had a week at the gorgeous La Fonte. It's really well located between San Gimignano and Certaldo (great places to visit) and with easy acces to Florence and Siena. The property itself is really lovely. So well kept and with beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside. The pool is great too and we mostly had it to ourselves...

We stayed a week at La Fonte with out two daughters and we all fell in love with the place. Heartstoppingly beautiful. Perfect base for visiting Florence, Siena, Volterra, we even ventured as far south as Pitigliano and Saturnia. Certaldo, the nearest village, is enchanting, as is the surrounding countryside. The secluded pool, framed by oleander, is the perfect antidote...

We had 3 wonderful days at La Fonte. Maria was a wonderful host. The property and rooms were spacious, clean and well looked after. The pool was an added benefit for the end of a hot day touring. We will certainly return on our next visit to Tuscany.

Four of us recently shared the 2 bedroom apartment Rosmarino for 4 nights. One of the bedrooms has doors leading to the beautiful terrace, and you can also access this from outside the apartment. The bedrooms are very large - one with double bed, the other with two singles (leading to terrace) and each room as it's own bathroom attached....

We just returned from another lovely visit to La Fonte, and once again, Maria made everything so lovely for us. We love to sit out on the patio with views of the Tuscan countryside. A nice bottle of wine, some freshly baked bread, and cheese from the nearby co-op, and we have own own little picnic with this incredible view....

We had several stays with Maria, the hostess at La Fonte, as well in the apartments on the first floor as in the apartment Rosmarin on the ground floor. Each one is different, but we enjoyed staying in every one of them. The last one was the ground apartment. It has a nice terrace overviewing the valley behind La Fonte....
