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.

The elegant Tuscan-styled rooms feel spacious and homely, with original beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and dainty fireplaces. Superior rooms come with a few extra luxury touches and a slice more space. Not surprisingly, Fonte de' Medici trumpets a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

The beautiful Trattoria della Fonte serves sublime traditional Italian dishes and a delicious continental breakfast each morning. The new Fonte de' 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 in the summer (May-October) the restaurant opens Tuesday to Sunday, 6.30-10pm and Sunday, 12.30-2.30pm. In the winter (November-January and March-April) it opens Friday to Sunday, 7-10pm and Sunday, 12.30-2.30pm. Please also be aware that closures may apply due to private events; please contact the hotel for more information.


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


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 Vallombrosan monastery, Badia di 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.
