Our story

Love at first sight

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.

A jewel in the crown

For Signorina Bolfo, the Hotel Le Fontanelle is “the jewel of Chianti”, a very special place that is well-kept and tasteful, with unique views, and beautiful abundant greenery. Even after several years of operation, for her everything is still the same as the first day.

History coming back to life

The task of nursing the estate back to life was taken on by Margherita Gozzi, the owner’s niece. She started with the late 19th century water source, from which the hotel got its name. The place had kept its historic and cultural identity: porticoes, loggias and archways still adorn the buildings, along with stone walls, original wood ceiling beams, terracotta floors. All the elements of a classic Chianti farm dwelling.

The landscape you view today is no different from that of 200 years ago, marked with vineyards and olive trees, native vegetation, and aromatic herbs.
