“Excellentes vacances !”
Logis situé à l'étage, très spacieux pour 6 personnes. Appartement très propre et bon accueil. Région très belle de Toscane. Le mieux : piscine et environs Pise, Voltera, San Gimignano Le moins : - Nous retournerons !
“The perfect quiet place to see all of Tuscany”
We stayed here for one week, and will probably come back again! Katia is a very friendly host and her pizza-nights are to remember. The apartments are spacious, clean and the building is on an excellent location to visit the rest of Tuscany. A small supermarket is nearby, which will supply you with everything needed to cook for yourselves. Many excellent restaurants in the neighborhood?. All in all, a very, very nice stay in a very nice place. Highly recommended!
“Awesome location and lovely property”
We stayed for a week in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Katia and Fernando couldn't have been more welcoming (and even invited us in to their home with their family and friends for traditional wood fire oven cooked pizzas one night). The villa is very clean and views are to die for. Every day the pool was cleaned and there are plenty of deck chairs for relaxing by the pool. The location is a quick 20 min drive to either the lovely villages of Volterra and St G. My only small comment would be that there wasn't a bottle opener and only 1 wine glass in the villa we stayed in. To be fair we didn't mention this to Katia and I am 100% positive that if we had she would have rectified this immediately. Instead we borrowed one of the three bottle openers that the villa upstairs had and made do with a normal glass for one of us. The wifi worked fantastic, shower pressure was wonderful and massive king sized bed comfortable. The small village of Villamagna is a 15min walk (uphill) and the deli/market has all of the delicious Italian food that you might need to make some lovely meals. Overall I was very impressed and would definitely stay again or recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in Tuscany.
My family and I just returned from a very relaxing week at La fonte and would definitely go back again. My parents, my husband, and my two boys stayed in the Spiga apartment. The weather was perfect, and we spent most of our days playing in the pool and taking bike rides from the house. We were greeted with some fresh eggs, pasta, fresh tomato sauce, and some of the best olive oil I have ever tasted (or smelled!). Katia and her family were all very nice and helpful. We went to Volterra and San Gimignano a few times and had gelato just about every night :) The boys were so happy at the house that we didn't travel more than that. We also lucked out and had the entire place to ourselves for the week we were there. We would highly recommend this place!
“The best holiday destination in my life”
I especially liked this house because the location was close to everything we wanted - the cities, the small towns, the sea - everything. It was peaceful, and I could really rest, but when I wanted to go and visit something wonderful, it was really close. Volterra, only 14km away was my favourite destination. The house itself is very beautiful and tastefully decorated. The pizza served by the owners was the best I had ever eaten. It was our 2nd visit to this house. Definitely a great place for families with children. We had 4 kids (from 3 years old to 12 years old) and they all loved it.
“A place worth of finding”
Firstly, you have to be lucky to find this place. Without GPS we didn't achieve it. But it is worth of finding. This place is amazing for people who want to get rest and spend time in a queit surrounding with really nice neighbours. We were there in September but the weather was wonderfull-over 20 C - perfect for visiting. This place is close to Volterra or San Gimignano. The owner Katia proved herself to be helpful and really nice. One afternoon she made for us a home-made pizza and it was as delicious as we have never ate before. We spent there marvellous time.
Fantastic environment! The accomadation really catered for all our needs it is a really beautiful area! Thank you so much Katia we will return again
“Amazing week in Tuscany”
We stayed in apartment Ginevra and enjoyed tho whole stay there. One evening we were invited for dinner with the owner and it was a really nice experience. The whole apartment was really comfortable, clean. I would just mention one small disadvantage - You have to be careful when You are having a shower - there are no water barriers :) We spent there a wonderful week!
“Un havre de paix près de Volterra”
Nous sommes un couple français qui avons passé une excellente semaine de repos à Villaéagna. L'appartement était trés bien (peut être un petit effort à faire au niveau de la douche). L'accueil vraiment trés sympa, merci Katia et son mari. Nous avons même gouté les tomates du jardin qui étaient exceptionnelles!! je recommande d'y aller
“It is really the taste of Toscana”
First of all I must admite, that the contact with Katia is really good and everything you need you can arrange without any problems. And that was the first nice thing about the stay, even long before it started. The house is really located in the middle of nowhere - but in the good meanings. Together with my wife we've searched for a simple, quiet, sunny place to have a one week stay and taste the Toscana. And La Fonte ist the one of them definitely. The place is really in the middle of the small Toscana mountains like you've maybe seen in some postcards. It is also a good base for trips to other places like Pisa, Firence, Siena or Livorno. Everything you need. In fact, La Fonte is placed nearby the small Villamagna where you can buy basic ingredients and have a nice field of view to Toscana. Further on, there is a small pool located in the garden, so you can cool down your body anytime you want. One could be there better - there is no functioning light in the pool, so swimming in the dark is a little bit weird, but new experiences are welcome :-) So, there was one special day, where anna delivered own made real italian pizza. It was delicious. And plenty of it. What else do you need? There is kitchen, swiming pool, outside table with chairs. There was also plenty of sun, some singing/squoarking frogs at night, a friendly cat that was sill comming back even after our dog was sometimes too near of him. Everything was perfect. So if you are looking for simple, quiet, sunny place with delicious pizza in Toscana - La Fonte is the one.
