Since ancient history, rural settlements have been developing in the surroundings of the Hotel Le Fontanelle. The richness of the land and the purity of the landscape fascinated the Etruscans and later the Romans. In the Middle Ages, the Lombards also settled here. The Hotel Le “Fontanelle” is named after the old “fountains, sources of stone used to collect spring water. The current building was erected in the thirteenth century and, in the course of the centuries, the agricultural lands have regularly changed ownership. In the second half of the twentieth century, it was owned by the Marquis Emilio Pucci, a famous Florentine designer.
Recently, the new owner, Giuseppina Bolfo, chose the Chianti region to carry out her refined Hospitality project. It is her philosophy that defined the identity of the Hotel Le Fontanelle: "The Art of receiving in an elegant country Residence to make you feel right at Home". The final restoration leading to the transformation of the Le Fontanelle in a luxury Hotel began in 1999. Management of the works was entrusted to the architect Margherita Gozzi, niece of the owners, who by deploying cutting-edge techniques, allowed to maintain the spirit of the centuries-old tradition of the place. Built with local stone, the structure was converted into a thrilling holiday destination while maintaining the original context of the property.
The Hotel Le Fontanelle is today a 5 star Hotel, proposing 34 rooms, each one different from the other and divided into five different categories. Such flexibility allows us to satisfy the specific needs of each individual Guest. The Hotel is situated in a strategic position at the top of the hill and is surrounded by vineyards and manicured gardens that guarantee, in addition to breathtaking views of the Chianti valleys, an exclusive setting immersed in a perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
The architectural structure of the complex will provide a feeling of not really being in a Hotel, but rather in a structured hamlet where you can experience the true essence of Tuscany. Fittingly, all the rooms have terracotta floors and beamed ceiling, typical of the architectural identity of the area.
The furniture and fittings are purely of Tuscan tradition and the works of art that adorn the dwelling have been specially chosen by the Owner of the House and will amaze you by their dedication and attention to detail. No attention has been spared to ensure you experience the discretion of a Hotel dedicated to romantic and timeless escapes.
