To see the beautiful town of Pienza, as in a postcard, sitting down under a big oak the
most ancient of the Val d’Orcia, you have to stay in the farmhouse "Le Fontanelle", a
beautiful country house not so far from the medieval town Monticchiello.
Le Fontanelle is located in the spectacular countryside of the Orcia valley, which
has been renowned since the end of the first millennium as an important stage on the Via
Francigena, the great medieval pilgrimage road from France to Rome.
Le Fontanelle was peasants' house in ruins when it was discovered by the Gonzi family, its
Ideal for a luxury holiday combined with great hospitality and gastronomy.
They have renovated other farmhouses, so the same attention to detail and all
the lessons learned from previous renovations have been used in this last
restoration, finished in 2003: original stone and bricks, terracotta flooring,
antiques and Tuscan wooden furniture.
The extensive lawn is mainly grass to maintain the open space of the valley and not to
restrict the view around the farmhouse.
Terracotta pots with geraniums, wild roses and bushes of lavender and rosemary create a
beautiful frame around the pool ( 5.15mx 15m h. 90cm a 1.70 cm).
The large swimming pool is part of a landscaped terrace looking out over the countryside:
it lies next to the villa from where guests can enjoy a spectacular view. Here guests can
enjoy a long swim or simply relax poolside.
All around tables and lounge chairs transform the area into a veritable outdoor salon,
suitable for sun-bathing, conversing, cocktails or just spending time with family and
The covered dining space with fireplace, pizza oven, barbeque, table and chairs will let
guests enjoy unforgettable Tuscan sunsets.
