We spent a week at Le Fontanelle in July 2017. It was the perfect spot for our family of 5: easy drives for day trips to Sienna, Florence, Volterra and the Chianti region, this place was our favourite spot during our whole holiday. It has a large pool overlooking a lush green valley, lots of privacy, good wifi, lots of comfortable beds, located near a well stocked Coop supermarket and a short drive from San Gimignano. We will definitely be back to the Fontanelle!
The arrival could be tricky without sat nav as, unless you are familiar with Italian road signs, it is easy to get confused. Although we appeared to be getting a strong wifi signal we failed to connect but this was a minor inconvenience. The property was roomy and comfortable with its own shaded outside space. It was equipped with plenty of cooking utensils and having a dishwasher was a bonus.
All round excellent value for money.

Idyllic spot, lovely swimming in the pool and perfect base for exploring this wonderful part of Tuscany
A lovely base for exploring in Tuscany. The farmhouse was close to many spots for day trips (Volterra, San Gimignano, Sienna, the Mediterranean) but was also pleasant enough to relax at by the pool. Helpful groundskeeper recommended a great restaurant to us, and while there are other residents in the complex, it is quiet, well-maintained and a charming get-away.
