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

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 onsite Trattoria della Fonte, cookery school and wellness centre. Fonte de' Medici trumpets a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
