La Fonte - Apartments
A warm welcome awaits you at our lovely old Tuscan Farmhouse. After living in various parts of the world The Bergamasco family decided to return to Italy and make Tuscany their home. Many years of searching for the ideal property brought us to San Gimignano and to La Fonte. Situated on the top of a hill and approached along an avenue of centuries old cypress trees, the house and garden offer superb views of the gently rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards. "La Fonte" is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse which had been sadly neglected prior to our buying it. We have completely refurbished it taking great care to preserve all the traditional vaulted ceilings, arches, cypress beams and terracotta floors. The house now has 4 individually furnished self- catering apartments which accommodate a maximum of 14 guests at any one time. It is set in 2 hectares of well established garden where there are many quiet corners for relaxation. Terraces with tables and chairs offer guests the opportunity to enjoy al fresco meals, a BBQ with adjacent seating and a gazebo which overlooks the magnificent views around La Fonte. The swimming pool is 6 metres x 12 metres and is surrounded by a variety of flowering shrubs and plants where guests can enjoy a refreshing swim in a secluded area and relax under the umbrellas on sun beds and enjoy a glass of wine. The pool is open from May to September. Parking is on the property and free. San Gimignano, one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe, is 8 km from La Fonte. There are numerous restaurants nearby and good local shopping in Certaldo ( 4 km from the house ) There is also a train station with a good to Florence and Siena and a local car hire company which offers a delivery and collection service from the station or La Fonte. A small but well equipped supermarket is 2 km from the house.
