Nestled in the heart of Chianti Classico Wine Country, five-star Hotel Le Fontanelle exudes rustic Tuscan charm in the setting of a luxurious wine estate. Perched atop the distinct, forested hilltops of Chianti with breathtaking views of the landscape carpeted with vineyards below, the historic origins of Le Fontanelle can be traced back to the 13th century thanks to the discovery of original internal stonework, which is still visible in the hotel today.
Le Fontanelle is perched as a shining beacon of refined elegance amidst the blooming foliage and lush vineyards that typify the scenery. Carefully restored to retain the character of its former structure and honor the spirit of its heritage, by design, the hotel promotes the ambiance of a sophisticated Tuscan country estate. Guestrooms are spacious and light, decorated with a palette of neutral tones reminiscent of the surrounding nature, and outfitted with romantic wood furnishings and handmade fabrics, all contributing to the hotel’s calming esthetic that is both chic and inviting. Traditional touches are balanced with contemporary elements, and the hotel’s dedication to exceptional service is matched by its most modern of amenities, including a lovely outdoor pool with splendid views of the countryside, and a luxurious Spa and Wellness center where guests can enjoy a range of professional spa treatments, along with a sauna, Turkish bath, hydro-massage Jacuzzi, indoor pool and fitness center.
The hotel’s gourmet restaurant is a perfect opportunity to sample the finest locally sourced ingredients in preparations that honor the flavors of Chianti and Tuscany. Guests can dine indoors or during warmer months, on the restaurant’s Belvedere Terrace with exquisite views of the surrounding Chianti hills. The property’s wine shop is also ideal to sample the region’s finest vintages while also tasting estate produced wines and olive oils.
