Hotel Le Fontanelle, Tuscany

A feeling of great history pervades your senses as you ride along the winding driveway towards Hotel Le Fontanelle. Built in the 13th century the very stones of the hotel are softly time-worn and have overlooked the rolling vineyards of the famous Chianti region for generation after generation, stretching back into distant history.

But as a visitor today you’ll also notice some welcome modern refinements within the walls of the structured hamlet that is Hotel Le Fontanelle. Amongst the raftered ceilings and the brick archways you’ll find cuisine that expertly takes regional dishes and adds a contemporary twist. You’ll find designer en suites and hi tech entertainment systems, and up-to-date standards of service. All incontrovertible reasons for making Hotel Le Fontanelle part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Italy.
