“Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Vermieter in einer wunderschönen Natur”
By Lothar Fuhrmann on 01-Jul-2018
Vielen Dank an Katia und ihrer Familie die uns die Urlaubszeit so angenehm wie möglich bereitete.
Die zweckmäßig eingerichtete Ferienwohnung hat unserer Familie, die immerhin 7 Pesonen zählt, einen ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub ermöglicht. Der Pool war zur Erfrischung hervorragend, so das uns das abchillen am Haus absolutte Erholung brachte.
Die Familie, insbesondere Mutter Anna, war sehr hilfsbereitund organisierte alles was uns fehlte.
Die von Schwester Stella vorbeigebrachte Homemade Pizza war köstlich. Leider konnten wir an dem gemeinsammen Essen mit der Familie, eine Woche später, nicht mehr teilnehmen.
Wenn überhaubt zu beklagen, waren die nicht ausreichenden Schränke auf den Schlafzimmern, so das die KInder aus dem Koffer leben mussten. Was uns aber nicht zusehr störte. Die tolle Aussicht von der Terasse entschädigte hier alles andere.
Gern kommen wir mal wieder.
Herzliche Grüße an Karia und die Familie

We have been visiting Tuscany for some year and love it. We have not stayed near Volterra before, but next time we will! La Fonte is a perfect choice, simple and nice appartments in a peaceful area, surrounded by a lovely landscape. The only "noise" we heard was... the calls of the pheasants from the hill nearby.
The spot is in the middle of many important locations, so with few kilometers every day we had the chance to visit many of the places that we wanted to see, from Pisa to San Gimignano and from Volterra to Certaldo etc.
Katia, the owner, was very friendly and gave us very useful instructions for places to visit etc.
Our next visit to Tuscany will definitely include a stay at La Fonte.
Bel environnement !”

Katia and her family could not have been more friendly. We met in laws, Grandma and were given, eggs, tomatoes, melon all fresh from the farm as well as the weekly pizza parties. The swimming pool was great was great for the kids and the village of Villamagna up the road had a couple of shops to buy bread etc. We loved Volterra, the nearest town which is on a hill and had great pizza. We thought Tuscany was classy compared to say Spain however the mosquitoes caught us by surprise.
“Adresse à retenir sans hésitation!”
By Veronique Camisasca on 01-Aug-2017
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Katia et Fernando ainsi que par leur famille, un grand merci à tous! Ils sont tous extrêmement chaleureux, ils n'hésitent pas à donner de nombreux conseils de visites, et de nombreuses informations. Nous avons appréciés nos discussions à moitié en anglais, italien, français (entre autres avec Anna!), mais également la possibilité de profiter du potager (les délicieuses tomates!), sans oublier la piscine. Nous reviendrons !! Grazie mille per tutti! Location très bien située pour visiter les principaux sites de la Toscane (Sienne, Pise, Florence...) mais à visiter impérativement les villages de Volterra, San Gimignano... Ne pas hésiter à goûter les vins qui sont très bons.

La situation, le logement de qualité, la piscine, les charmants propriétaires.
Stunning scenery, friendly hosts, great holiday
By Andy White on 06-Jul-2016
We loved the farmhouse and the view over the hills and olive groves. The pool was refreshing after a hot day sight seeing. We were close enough to visit Pisa, Siena and Florence as well as the beautiful hill towns of voltera and San Gimignano . The Accomodation was spacious and beds comfortable. We appreciated all the produce from the farm lettuce, plums,eggs and really enjoyed the evening spent with our hosts eating pizza and trying to speak some Italian!
“Great Farmhouse and location”
By on 14-Jun-2016
We had a great time visiting this Farmhouse, the location is perfect sitting in the hills of Tuscany with easy access to Volterra, San Gimignan, Pisa, Florence and Siena. The Farmhouse is very well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The pool area is clean and well tended. The Farmhouse sits in the middle of a working farm and all of the family are extremely friendly (my 4 year old son got a ride in a tractor and he is still talking about it). The weekly Pizza Party organised by the owner is great as the food is delicious. I would recommend this Farmhouse to all travellers, we were a group of 5 (1 Child, parents and grand parents). Everyone loved this holiday and we will definitely return in the future.

Firstly,Katia and her family are the most wonderful and friendly people you could ask to meet.I stayed in this lovely villa for 12 wonderful days at the end of May 2016.Everything you need is in the house,swimming pool outside,barbecue area,play area for kids and glorious scenery.Its location is ideal for touring Pisa,Florence,Sienna and some old and quaint villages all within driving range.There are not many owners who would invite you to their own home for a Pizza feast and that is what Katia did not only once but twice.We are certainly looking forward to returning again.We were in a family group of 4 adults and one child and had a brilliant holiday.
By Valentin Maier on 01-Feb-2015
situated between Tuscany hills agriturismo la fonte is a dream location very well maintained by the owners, very clean and really wellcoming. If you want a relaxing holiday with a brilliant starting point for visiting Florence, Siena,Bagni di Luca, San Gimignano, Volterra this is ideal.
highly recommended. thank you Katia and family for such a lovely holiday!
