Tranquil stay in boutique luxury hotel
We had an amazing experience in this hotel and this area of Chianti particularly. Fonte de Medici is truly small luxury hotel which provides anything you need. Rooms are very comfortable and clean in a beautiful settings where you can smell the pine trees and lavender. There is no need to keep the AC running all night as they have mosquito nets installed on windows and constant breeze cools the area every afternoon and night. The pool is amazing with plenty of sunbeds and natural shade. The property is set in the middle of one of the most famous vineyards in Italy and the whole property belongs to one of the oldest Tuscan noble families. Breakfast is very good but the service there is even better. On the very first day the ladies at the breakfast realised I was gluten free so they brought me many different gluten free choices. This basket of goods was repeated every following morning. Thank you!!! Please be aware that many Chianti hotels, especially the old villas, have deceitful pictures, many are badly decayed and they offer poor service for high money, but Fonte de Medici is run well and it is much better then what you can see on the photos. We are coming back definitely!
