A taste of Italian refinement at a pretty stone-clad Tuscan farmhouse less than an hour from Florence, with breakfast, a bottle of wine and more

For Italophiles and wine connoisseurs, this getaway is a little slice of gastronomic heaven – an authentic Italian stay in the rolling Tuscan countryside and all the delights that come with this destination.

In the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region, the charming traditional village of Santa Maria a Macerata is home to the fabulous Tuscan retreat of Fonte de' Medici. The pretty stone-clad farmhouse and its restored medieval cottages overlook the prestigious Antinori vineyards, one of the largest wine producers in Italy, and the on-site Trattoria della Fonte, cookery school and wellness centre.

Good to know


Guided minibus tours of the Chianti, Florence, Siena and other outlying regions can be arranged on request (subject to availability).

Wi-Fi access is only available in common areas.

Please note that a city tax of €1.50 per person, per night, is payable at the hotel upon check-out, for up to a maximum of seven nights (except for children aged 0-13).

Dining

The new Fonte dè Medici Cooking School offers basic courses focused on the Tuscan culinary arts followed by the all-important tasting session (reservations and a minimum of four participants are required). Of course, this being Chianti country, no visit would be complete without a wine tasting visit to the new Monumentali Cantine del Chianti Classico cellars which can be arranged daily between 10am-5pm.

Please note that the restaurant opens for dinner between 7.30-10pm on weekends only.

Wellness

If you weren’t already relaxed enough after all the beautiful wine and Italian cuisine, the delightful on-site wellness centre has a sauna, a Turkish bath and massages that can be arranged on request. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and complimentary bike hire for exploring the scenic local countryside.

Location

The village of Fonte de' Medici dates back to 1400 and is located in the heart of Chianti Classico region. Around it lies the majestic vineyards of the Antinori family vineyards – renowned producers of the Tignanello and Solaia reserves. Nearby, the fascinating Vallombrosian monastery, Badia a Passignano, is an ancient abbey that dates back to 395AD. Beneath this building sits vast, ancient cellars that are still used today to age the fine wines of the region. Stunning Renaissance architecture, chic European fashion, and fine art can be found just a short drive away in the beautiful city of Florence.
