About the villa

Le Fontane is a gorgeous stone house set in impressive grounds, with panoramic views over the breath-taking Tuscan countryside. After seeing the impressive interiors, which have been featured in publications such as Elle Décor and House & Garden -  it is no real surprise that the owner is a well-known Italian designer. In the living room vaulted ceilings add an exciting depth to an already spacious room, decorated in neutral shades with lots of comfortable and stylish seating. In a separate wing, there’s a relaxed sitting room with a fireplace from which you can access an en suite double bedroom.

The first floor is home to a second sitting room with television and a sofa bed for additional guests. Four spacious en suite bedrooms also occupy this floor, made up of three double rooms and one twin – each individually and tastefully decorated. Further accommodation can be found in the guest house where there is a second living room and space for an additional six guests. The gardens surrounding the property are simply magnificent, featuring a 12m long pool with accompanying sunbeds, parasols and panoramic views. Nearby amenities can be found just 10km away in the popular wine region of Montalcino.

About the area

Chianti and South of Siena

Average weather

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.

But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
