Great but taxis wouldn’t come
Villa is wonderful and exactly as it seems in photos. We had the chef for 5 nights and 6 breakfasts which was amazing. Marinella the concierge was good but not always 100% on top of every detail. The taxis just wouldn’t come when we called. Marinella said they are never a problem but this strains credibility. We ended up hiring car services each morning to go into town at 50E a trip which was fine once we figured it out. We walked a couple times but the last 1/3 mile was too narrow to feel safe. So we just took car service in. Cooking school at La Quercia was amazing. We did the grocery pre-stock and it was amazing. They restocked water within an hour of Marinella texting them! The area around the villa is very high end — large villas for miles. Felt very safe. One of our guests had a car which was useful a few times. The private vans to winery and Siena were great quality but the drivers varied in terms of how helpful they were — some were great, others okay and one was bad. We would rent this lovely villa again but we would make sure we had pre-scheduled cars services to take us into Florence each morning. The rooms vary in size — the 4 top floor ones are special. The ones on the other two floors are nice but more modestly sized. The outdoor spaces are wonderful. My rating is 96 overall
Amazing Experience in Florence!
La Fonte is the perfect place for an absolute perfect family vacation in Italy, right on Florence’s door step. The property is exactly as advertised, and that’s saying something. Alexandra is a gracious, elegant hostess. And Marinella made all our arrangements for us to ensure the vacation came off without a hitch. Just magical!! This is literally the best Villa, in the best location in Florence. And the pool was a life saver for everyone (from grandparents to grandkids) on the hot/humid summer days in Italy. Couldn’t have enjoyed our stay more. Life experience!!
We had a lovely stay at the villa. It was perfect. The owners daughter was lovely
Lovely experience. Beautiful property and wonderful owners.
We offer the highest praise to Villa la Fonte. The Villa is sumptuous in every detail, the view serene, the location ideally situated between city and country. Alexandra is a warm and lovely woman, we really appreciated the history of the villa that she shared. The private chefs she has chosen to cook at the Villa could not be better, more imaginative or friendlier. Our guests loved concluding our week with a pasta cooking class. Special thanks to Marinella Mimi Fattorini, our concierge. She is a resource of information, connections and unbridled enthusiasm. Also, a debt of gratitude to Guido Betti who met us early Saturday morning at Sant Ambrogio so we could select and purchase many of our groceries that he then delivered and artfully unpacked at the Villa. My wife and I and our guests were embraced with hospitality and warmth from our early correspondence until our final goodbyes. We will return, although not soon enough.

A beautiful property in every respect
Utilized the property for a small wedding - it was perfect. Made even more perfect by the owner's daughter who served as our wedding coordinator - both Alexandra and Olivia were a pleasure to work with and made our time in Tuscany memorable.
GREAT GREAT GREAT
The house was just as described, every detail was in place. We where a group of 14, of all ages and did not feel crowded. Beds where very confortable, rooms neat, clean, sheets also looked new. Property very well located, everything within 5 minutes, supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, historic Florence...
We had a great time, defenetly a place to recommend and would come back and book again! Owner and staff took care of us, and helped us with local activities all ways answered right away.
