Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The farmhouse "La Fonte" is situated in the heart of the Tuscany hills near Volterra and Saint Gimignano.
The magic and mysterious city of Volterra has its roots in three thousand years of history. It is possible to find evidence and traces from every historical period which gives the artistic city a unique aspect: etruscan, roman and medieval. Recently Volterra is become famous also for the "Twilight saga" a movie inspirated by a famous best seller.

San Gimignano is located on a hill overlooking the Val dElsa valley, surrounded by fortified walls, San Gimignano is an extraordinary example of medieval town planning. Art city, rich in art treasures, San Gimignano is an important tourist attraction, that has been proclaimed natural and cultural heritage by UNESCO.

Villamagna

In Volterra you can visit the Roman theatre, the Etruscan tombs, the Etruscan museum (one of the most important in Europe), the mediaeval Piazza dei priori (similar to Piazza della Signoria in Florence), the spectacular view of the "balze", some 800' s build (like "Palazzo Viti"), the "maschio" (a medieval castle, actually a security prison) collocated in a wonderful green area, some alabaster's museums and other things.

“Peace and quiet”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2013

This is a fully self contained slice of heaven! loved the place and will be back! Katia and her family were very welcoming and it was very peaceful as well as being close to Volterra and San Gimignano

“Wonderful, clean, space, view, good price”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

We lived at apartments Ginestra and Spiga. Both apartments are clean, have good equipment. Spiga have much space and fantastic view as it is on the upper floor. We were afraid there was not aircon, but it was ok. The washing mashing was helpful. The pool is great, big and clean as it is new! A children playground and BBQ with big table are great. The nearest beach is Bibona, it tooks us about 1 hour to get there. We recommend to visit nice towns San Gimignano, Lucca, Firenze. Supermarkets are not far from the house and you can buy italian homemade wine, see signs on the road. Katia and her family were very attentive to us, Katia was there for any question or need. She gave us fruits and homemade pizza, it is delicious! We are happy to meet this wonderful place, thank you Katia very much!

“Perfect location for a relaxing break...”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2012

Katia was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. The property was lovely, it was good value for money, and had everything that we needed. The setting was beautiful, and a great location for visiting all the places we planned to see in Tuscany. A great place to return to after a long day sightseeing to relax over a glass of wine. I would not hesitate in returning, or recommending to others.

“Excellent accommodation set in the heart of Tuscany countryside with very considerate host.”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2011

We rented the Papavero apartment for a week this August. The apartment was very clean and well thought out. Katia was kind enough to put in a extra bed as our teenage girls do not like sharing. We had a truly relaxing time. All enjoyed the pool, sitting on the veranda and watching the sun set over the tuscan hills and befriending the resident kitten. Day trips to Volterra, San Gimiignano and Sienna were a easy distance. We travelled from Pisa and Florence but you could do these as day trips from here. On arrival Katia had provided us with a welcome bottle of wine and pizzas mid week. All of which contributed to a memorable holiday.

“For those who are looking for silence and beautiful landscapes”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2011

We stayed for one week in La Fonte and we were truly sorry, it couldn't be longer. The house is very nice, situated among the Tuscan hills, with nice and clean swimming-pool. The village is about 20 minutes on foot from the spot. Our apartment was very nice and well equipped (kitchen gives a good opportunity to prepare dishes based on fresh, original Italian ingridients!). Both Katja and her husband showed us real Italian hospitality, and the pizza was a delicious surprise! The place is wonderful located, peaceful and quiet. It was all that we wanted to find for the vacations. Thank you for making our dreams come true! Kasia&the Family, Poland

“Schönes Agriturismo”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2011

Wir hatten einen wirklich schönen Aufenthalt in La Fonte. Die Appartements sind zwar relativ einfach eingerichtet, aber das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis ist sehr gut. Der Pool ist schön und gepflegt. Die Lage ist sehr gut für Ausflüge nach Pisa, Florenz, Siena, San Gimignano etc. Katia ist sehr nett, einen Abend brachte sie selbstgemachte Pizza, einen anderen Tag frische Tomaten aus dem Garten. Empfehlenswert ist auch das selbstgemachte Olivenöl!
