Overview

Fontelunga Hotel and Villas was Tuscany's first contemporary boutique hotel. With only eight rooms and two villas, this peaceful hideaway is ideal for those looking for rest and tranquility. 

This Chic Retreat is not your typical Tuscan luxury hotel. Modern design has been blended with traditional Italian decor to create an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere. With no formal hotel 'rules', expect friendly and highly personalised service. Paolo and Philip are around to ensure your every need is catered for, and are eager to recommend their favourite places to visit in the area. 

Standing majestically on the edge of the Val di Chiana, the garden of Italy, Fontelunga has expansive views towards the city of Cortona and its mountains beyond. Surrounded by its own olive groves, as well as local sunflower, wheat and fruit farms, it is impossible not to fall in love with the place. 

Dogs and children will receive a warm welcome at Fontelunga, with a nanny service available.

Activities

Tuscany is one of our favourite places for wine, and Fontelunga is no exception. With some excellent wineries in the area, we highly recommend that you ask Paolo and Philip to book you into a wine tasting tour. 

For a relaxing day at the hotel, stroll through the surrounding olive groves, or dip your toes into one of the two pools. Feel truly pampered in the Jacuzzi, or perhaps enjoy a rejuvinating massage (please request prior to arrival).

End your day with a glass of wine on the outdoor gazebo. With comfortable seats and a fireplace, it is a wonderful place to unwind as you gaze up at the stars.

With Florence, Siena, Orvieto and Assisi within a one hour drive, there is plenty of culture at your fingertips. For those in need of retail therapy, the city of Arezzo is an affluent, hidden Tuscan gem with plenty to offer. The factory outlets for Prada, Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Fendi, Armani and Sergio Rossi are also close by. 

Dining

Twice a week guests are invited to an informal dinner party, where wine and home-made dishes are available in abundance. 

Continental breakfasts, lunches and dinners are all available on request at Fontelunga Hotel and Villas. Whether you fancy a private dinner party, picnic or even a cocktail party, the staff are more than happy to cater for you. 

If it's a more relaxed evening you are looking for, a mobile pizza oven can be provided (this is Italy after all). For dessert, the hotel offers a bicycle ice cream stand, which serves locally sourced, flavoursome ice cream. 

Sip on a glass of wine at the honesty bar, as you laze on the outdoor gazebo. While there is no restaurant at the hotel, Paolo and Philip are more than happy to recommend their favourite nearby restaurants.

Location



Address: Via Cunicchio 5, Loc.Pozzo Pozzo della Chiana, 52045 , Italy


Nearest airport:

Florence Airport is a 1 hour and 15 minute drive from the hotel (99 km).


How to get there:

Directions from Rome: Follow signs to the Autostrada A1, towards Firenze. It is about 180km from the tollbooth and will take 2 hours. Take the Val di Chiana exit. Turn right after the toll gate signposted Foiano. Continue along this road around Foiano (Do not enter Foiano) following the signs to Arezzo for about 8km. Look out for a small blue sign for a left-hand turning towards Pozzo. Take this turning (if you have turned off before this you have taken the wrong turning). On the hill ahead of you, you should be able to see the Villa (a red Villa with blue shutters). Continue along this road past a small yellow church on the left at the foot of the hill. Go up the hill and at the top, turn left up a gravelled road signposted Via Cunicchio to Villa Fontelunga. The Villa is 100 m on the left hand side. Please park under the pine trees.

Directions from Milan: Follow signs for Autostrada A1 towards Bologna-Firenze. Continue after Firenze along the A1 towards Roma. Take the Val di Chiana exit about 1 hour from Firenze. After leaving the Autostrada follow the directions as for Rome.

Directions from Florence: Initially follow directions for Prato. After approximately 3 minutes, you will see signs for the Autostrada A1. Join the Autostrada in the direction of Roma. Take the Val di Chiana exit about 1 hour from Firenze. After leaving the Autostrada, follow directions as for Rome.

Directions from Pisa: Leave Pisa airport from the exit adjacent to the car rental parking depot and turn right in the direction signposted Firenze. Follow this road (a dual carriageway) all the way to Firenze. You will eventually, just outside Firenze, come to a signpost for the Autostrada A1 and Roma. Take this turning. Follow the exit off the road and round a bend to the right- you will come to a junction with a tollbooth for the Autostrada ahead of you. Go onto the Autostrada in the direction of Roma, turning off at the Val di Chiana exit and then follow the directions as for Rome.
