Fontelunga, Tuscany

The ultimate Tuscan holiday home away from home experience, complete with even a dog

Fontelunga is set within an estate of 200 olive trees, and with spectacular views across the countryside towards the hilltop town of Cortona.

At this boutique hotel they are even producing their own olive oil.

The villa includes a spacious living area, 8 double rooms and a junior suite in a separate villa, an outside gazebo with fireplace, landscaped gardens, Jacuzzi, tennis court and mountain bikes to borrow.

There’s a sun-warmed outdoor pool overlooking the valley and the nearby town of Cortona.

The rooms are individually styled with an eclectic mix of modern and antique furnishing, flawlessly blended with modern Starck and Jacobsen.

The terrace, where breakfast and lunch are served, at the back of the main building allows clients to enjoy spectacular views across the Val di Chiana.

Twice a week a private 3 course dinner party is organised for the guests, which is really appreciated and an event that has become synonymous with life at Fontelunga.

This boutique hotel in Tuscany captures all that is good about the Italian way of life, stylish interior design, gorgeous grounds, fabulous food and a warm welcome.

You’re likely to find leaving the hotel difficult.
