The 5-star Hotel le Fontanelle is perched on a hilltop in Castelnuovo Berardenga, encircled by the quiet of the Tuscan countryside. What was once a small rural village has been transformed into a retreat for the traveler in search of the real essence of Chianti.
This is the heart of Chianti. It’s Siena with its famous Piazza del Campo and the thrill of the Palio. It’s the Val D’Orcia, with unique glimpses of green and medieval towns. It’s the white alabaster of Volterra, and the dizzying towers of San Gimignano. The Hotel Le Fontanelle is your gateway to an amazing journey into Tuscany.
For the owner of the Hotel Le Fontanelle, Signorina Giuseppina Bolfo, this is a home – chosen, cared for, and loved as if it were her own. Filled with good taste and beauty, with elegance and the essence of Tuscany, you can only feel at home here too.
The scents of wine and fresh basil fill your table, the tastes of nature charm the palate, and the untouched Tuscan landscape unfolds before you. This is the kitchen of our chef Daniele Canella and this is our panoramic restaurant La Colonna.
