The 5-star Hotel le Fontanelle is perched on a hilltop in Castelnuovo Berardenga, encircled by the quiet of the Tuscan countryside. What was once a small rural village has been transformed into a retreat for the traveler in search of the real essence of Chianti.
About nine miles east of Siena, this welcoming and understated family-run hotel in a handsome
13th-century brick-and-stone farmstead is set on a hilltop overlooking acres of rolling countryside.
In the world of luxury travel, nothing matters more than details.
At Pure Luxury Dreams, we know it’s the little things that make a big difference.
That’s why Hotel Le Fontanelle works hard to make every detail perfect.
The Hotel Le Fontanelle overlooks, like a large panoramic terrace, on one of the most fascinating views of the Tuscan countryside. Surrounded by lush vineyards and olive groves, secluded in an exclusive corner of the valley of Chianti Classico, it enjoys an enviable position. Ideal for those looking to getting away from the fast-paced world we live in to indulge in pure relaxation, not missing the chance to visit great cultural attractions and have great gastronomic experiences. In fact it is located only 20 km from Siena and 80 km from Florence, offers the opportunity to discover the charm and richness of the Italian Renaissance.
In 1999 Giuseppina Bolfo came across a 700-year-old settlement in Castelnuovo Berardenga. Perched on top of a hill overlooking Chianti, the views were nothing short of fabulous. It was love at first sight. The ancient farmhouse and buildings were in poor condition but they quickly underwent a huge restoration project to revitalize the building.

The property is an ancient country estate, which central structure dates back to the thirteenth century. It takes the name from its ancient sources of stone used to collect water from a spring, which have been preserved until today. The wise renovation of the residence has revived its ancient architectural splendour without losing sight of certain details and surely paying attention to provide all the modern amenities. The stone facade is in harmony with the surrounding nature, while the interiors are bright and furnished in typical Tuscan style. The Hotel Le Fontanelle is divided into several floors and consists of a main building where we find the reception, the restaurant, the bar, the swimming pool and small spa. The furniture has been accurately chosen to make comfortable every corner of the hotel. For example the common areas of the house are very cosy and invite the guests to relaxation in front of the fireplace or in the private library of the villa whilst reading a book of the vast collection. This small hotel discreetly won a favourable position among the hotels in Tuscany, finding its niche among the properties where you can still spend holidays completely abstracted from everyday life and reconnect with a natural primitive dimension.

Visit the cellar
The winery fits harmoniously into the nature of Chianti thanks to a successful project of organic architecture conceived and created by the Bolfo Family with the collaboration of architect Margherita Gozzi. During your stay at Le Fontanelle you should ask to visit the 6,000 square meter building inserted so seamlessly into this magnificent setting, where the grapes are harvested and processed to give life to our house wine.
