Agriturismo Le Fontanelle
Description: To admire the marvellous town of Pienza, like in a postcard, sitting under the oldest oak of all the Val d' Orcia, you must sojourn in the farmhouse Le Fontanelle, wonderful structure not far away from the medieval suburb of Monticchiello. Here you can choose apartments and rooms with bath of various dimensions enriched with all the comforts. The Gonzi family will help to spend an unforgettable stay in the land of Siena. At the guests' disposal: spacious common living-rooms with fireplaces, room for tastings, firewood oven and swimming pool.
In the surrounding park you can admire the massive structure of the "big oak of the Fontanelle" ( "quercus pubescens," 25 meters high).
Hospitality: The farmhouse has 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and spacious living-rooms. The lovely hall outside the house has been equipped with a dining table and a wood-burning oven. If you step into the house you will see beautiful floors made of Tuscan "cotto" (raw terracotta tiles), whereas Tuscan oaks have been used for the raftered ceilings.
The house is full of arches, which create an open and dynamic space and make the cottage look bigger and brighter. In the living room there is a large stone fireplace spreading a warm and cosy atmosphere all around.
The bedrooms are in perfect harmony with the general atmosphere of the house, as they also have raftered ceilings and cotto floors. The windows frame breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside, and the light coming from the outside is magically reflected all over the rooms, enhanced as it is by the white walls.
It 's possible to relax in the swimming pool equipped with hydromassage, admiring the wonderful panorama on Pienza and the Val d'Orcia.
