Fontelunga Hotel and Villas provide a unique and relaxing retreat. The elegant Villa Fontelunga is set above the Val di Chiana enjoying panoramic views across the Tuscan countryside, whilst the self-catering villas are nestled close by in the historic Scannagallo valley.
Fontelunga Hotel and Villas are owned and run by English and Italian friends providing a stylish relaxing retreat in Tuscany. Guests are warmly welcomed at Fontelunga and invited to treat the boutique hotel as their "home from home" in an atmosphere of informal luxury. Crafted from traditional materials, the 3 holiday villas at Fontelunga are now a marriage of traditional Tuscan style and contemporary design. Until now it has been difficult to find more 'rustic charm' when it comes to villa rental in Tuscany than at the Fontelunga’s Hotel & Villas.
Landscaped gardens and the surrounding countryside are a step outside the boutique hotel & self-catering villas. You can pass the day wandering through the olive groves, manicured lawns, knot and lavender gardens whilst a short walk to the top of the hill behind the Fontelunga villas offers spectacular views over the ValdiChiana. Relax at Villa Fontelunga on the terrace to the rear of the main building, which also allows Long Travel clients to enjoy the spectacular view across the Valdichiana. Here breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily whilst twice a week the owners organize a private 3 course dinner party for all the guests, an event that has become synonymous with life here at the boutique Villa Fontelunga!
Within the countryside hotel Fontelunga's property there are two swimming pools set amongst the olive groves of the Villa, an excellent location in which to relax, read a book, take the sun or simply admire the view with afternoon tea or a romantic cocktail with a loved one- whatever the mood takes you! There is also a jacuzzi, a tennis court and bikes for the use of Long Travel clients. For those more energetic, the tennis court at the boutique Fontelunga hotel is tucked away in the olive grove and if your game is below par at least the spectacular view can make up for a lost set!
The Fontelunga agritourist hotel sleeps 18 people comfortably, offering 9 double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. All the rooms are named after precious materials in Italian like "Avorio" (Ivory) and "Ametista" (Amethyst) and this colour is reflected in the styling of the bedroom.
There are 2 self-catering private villas also available to book at the Fontelunga- Villa Gallo and Villa Galletto.
Villa Galletto is the smallest of the Villas, this one-bedroom honeymoon cottage, was built specifically for couples who would like their own privacy whilst not wishing to rent a larger villa. Galletto has its own private decked sitting area and landscaped garden, sharing a swimming pool with the two bed-roomed Villa Gallo. With a luxury contemporary styled split-level living area, Galletto offers the type of private accommodation that is a rare commodity to find in Tuscany. Whilst relaxing in the master bedroom or reclining in the sunken bath the Villa's designed open aspect allows its guests to enjoy the beauty of this secluded Tuscany valley.
Set amidst the fields and hedgerows Villa Gallo the larger "cottage" of the two self-catering villas. Nestled in this secluded valley the villa has its own private sitting area and garden whilst in the walled lavender garden it shares a swimming pool with the one bed-roomed villa Galletto. Designed for two couples or a family it is unashamedly contemporary in its style but still with a distinctly Italian feel. The villa has a split-level open plan kitchen and living area with an open fire for those more chilly nights. The two luxurious double rooms are both individually styled with en-suite bathrooms and can also be made up as twins. Each of the rooms is equipped with air conditioning and their own stereo systems.
