La Fontanella is fantastically located in the heart of the Chianti, just on the edge of a quaint stone village filled with Tuscan character and charm. Several of the main Chianti vineyards can easily be reached for wine tastings, these include Brolio, Dievole and Meleto.
In the fenced garden there is a small prefabricated pool, partly raised above ground. Along one side of it is a pretty sun-deck furnished with a couple of sun-beds and an umbrella. The pool is well hidden from the nearby village road by a large laurel hedge.
Inside the villa there is a spacious lounge with a double sofa and sat TV. Passing under a terracotta arch there is the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is with gas hobs, oven, and a small fridge. The indoor dining table is a breakfast table with three stools.
From the lounge through another terracotta arch is a corridor off which there is access to the large double bedroom with a big mirrored wardrobe. The spacious bathroom with shower is at the end of the corridor.
Separately entered, on the first floor is a second part of the villa, this is a larger apartment. Inside is a fully equipped kitchen to the left. It includes an oven, microwave, gas hobs and a fridge with separate freezer compartment.
To the right of the entrance is the lounge and dining area, it is separated from the kitchen area by a pretty terracotta arch. The room has a warm wooden floor and the traditional Tuscan ceiling of terracotta tiles and wooden beams. One wall is exposed stone with a lovely open fireplace for the cooler nights. In the centre of the room is the antique wooden dining table which comfortably seats 8 people, while to one side is a triple leather sofa with matching armchair. Off the lounge is a small balcony looking out to the fantastic views of the Chianti.
To the back of the villa is the sleeping area which has a beautiful, large double bedroom with a four poster bed. Plenty of light comes in from the window with views of the garden. The room is furnished with a 5 door wardrobe and a matching bench. In the hall is a small bathroom with shower.
The second bedroom is a twin room, which can be made into a double if requested when booking. This spacious room is paved with wood, like the rest of the first floor of La Fontanella. In the room is a triple door wardrobe and comfortable armchair. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.

There is no internal access between the two floors of the villa, with the upper floor being larger than the ground floor.

In the village there is a good restaurant.
 

2 double bedrooms and 1 twin room.
The double bedrooms cannot be made into twins. The twin room can be set up as a double if requested when booking.
1 bathroom en-suite, 2 bathrooms in the hall.

Pros The smaller, modern apartment downstairs for 2 people was excellent. Good kitchen and shower room space and very comfortable king size bed.
The outside covered patio was great and the pool was small but totally adequate.
Great views.
We really enjoyed staying in this part of the property.
Cons The main house, sleeping 4 was dark and very old fashioned. The beds in both rooms were really uncomfortable. The access to outside space was only via the front door and meant the main room was dark all day. Although there were plenty of towels they had all seen better days. The mixture of bedding was very odd in colours and patterns. Thankfully we were only 2 in our party so we used the small property all the time.
Local attractions Malborgeta in llechi is much better than Rana del grotta.

Pros The Villa is set in lovely grounds and surroundings with plenty of space for our young daughter to run around and explore. It was very clean and spacious with all the amenities we needed to make our stay really great. All had a fantastic time.
Local attractions The two nearest restaurants La Grotta della Rana (San Sano) and Malborghetto offer fantastic food and great wine. The cooking school at Malborghetto was also a great experience. We also had Andrea from Il Fiasco in to cook at our Villa and the food he produced was superb and highly recommended.

Pros La Fontanella has now been improved to a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom property. Reviews from 2010-2012 are for the original 1 bedroom/1 bathroom version. The property is in a fantastic location within walking distance to a lovely restaurant and small grocerty store. Fully enclosed garden, great for children. There are mosquito screens on all windows where it is possible to add them and there are also 3 electric fans for use in the warmer weather.

Stay: September 2012
Pros The location was amazing, the views stunning, the outside facilities like the pool, decking and garden were perfect. Maybe I was expecting to have more than what we got.
Cons The only thing that was lacking was the indoors comforts. Only a sleeper couch to sit on in the lounge, which was old and not in great shape. Then there was the lack of an electric kettle, microwave and some basic creature comforts that we would have expected. Lastly, a total lack of mosquito netting means I have to visit a doctor about the various bites I have on my arms and legs.

Pros Very private and a great place to relax. Pool is fantastic.
Cons Nothing about the villa itself however, San Sano is very remote and access to other cities required driving over the Tuscan roads which gets laborious.
Local attractions The cooking class at Malborghetto is a must. Simone is excellent and we learned a lot from our time with him.

Pros De serene rust en het gemak naar het dorpje san sano te wandelen. Bij die hitte( 38 graden) was het zwembad en eten 's avonds bij la grotta della rana een heerlijke luxe.
Cons Ondanks de privacy en het directe prachtige uitzicht op de wijnvelden was de omgeving te bebost en moeilijk toegankelijk. Wij verlangden wijds uitzicht zoals de omgeving siena wel biedt.
Local attractions La grotta della rana met stip een heerlijk restaurant met leuke vrolijke eigenaar...huiselijke sfeer en prima kwaliteit wat betreft eten.

 Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Das Haus, das Wetter, Florenz, San Giminano, Siena
 Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck der Unterbrungung? Wenn man - wir wir - zum ersten Mal in die Toskana fährt, erwartet man die durch die Medien verbreitete Idealsicht. Wir waren erstaunt, dass sie auch das fast hielt, was man so von der Toskana erwartet. Angefangen vom Haus, mitr dem wir sehr zufrieden waren,. wewiter mit der Landschaft, in der das Haus lag sowie dem Land und den Menschen. Noch überraschter warewn wir, mit welcher Üppigkeit in dem Haus mit Wasser umgegangen wurde. Egal, welchen Han man aufdrehte, das Wasser floss nicht einfach, es schoss aus dem Kran. Ebenmso die Dusche - eine Wohltat!
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nein
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? nein
