Hotel Le Fontanelle Chianti Garden

Hotel Le Fontanelle is a luxury boutique retreat popular for offering panoramic views from its exceptional location in the Chianti Hills, overlooking acres of rolling countryside. The hotel’s main building itself dates all the way back to the 13th century. Being a part of an old brick-and-stone country estate, the structure is truly a spectacular sight to view. The elegant and refined rooms, characterised by their size and tasteful furnishings, are surrounded by prestigious common grounds, where guests will always be able to enjoy the personalised service of the staff. The 34 authentically Tuscan lodgings feature beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls and terracotta floors while each of them overlook the surrounding vineyards, woods, and valley. Some rooms open onto private outdoor terraces or gardens.

The furniture and fittings are purely of Tuscan tradition and the works of art that adorn the dwelling have been specially chosen by the owner of the house and will amaze you by their dedication and attention to detail. Public areas at the property include a refined lounge, a library, an atmospheric bar and an indoor-outdoor restaurant for excellent regional cuisine. There is also a panoramic outdoor pool and a spa with a large heated indoor pool, a Turkish bath and a gym. Mountain bikes are provided for hotel guests, and wine tastings and cooking classes can be arranged. The resort is located 8 miles east of Siena and a complimentary shuttle service to and from the center of Siena is available.

At the Hotel Le Fontanelle elegance is an intangible veil that covers everything. The rooms and suites are decorated in a simple, yet refined style. Each element is fresh and clean: linen, natural fibers, and coconut mats lined with French cloth are combined with walnut, oak and Bordeaux fabric – a little nod to the color of our wines, kissed by the sun of the Chianti hills. Each room is a refuge for the spirit that breathes the scents of Tuscany – rustic farmhouses surrounded by greenery and of delicious, delicate details of charm.

castel monastero superior room

Classic Room - 22 to 28 sam

Stillness – that’s the key element of our Classic rooms. The style is that of a rustic Tuscan home, with richly-colored terracotta floors, ceilings of exposed beams, and soft floral fabrics. Outside and beyond the windows you’ll take in the unforgettable view of the vineyards of Chianti that surround the hotel, from the moment you awake to when the sun goes down.

castel monastero deluxe room

Prestige Room - 25 to 30 sqm

Set in the small farmhouse close to the pool, the Prestige rooms are reminiscent of small country homes. The feeling inside is one of calm and intimacy, the style is chic and elemental. Outside, the private garden is perfect for enjoying the summer, far from the rest of the world.

Deluxe Room - 30 to 40 sqm

With large windows and open spaces, the Deluxe rooms feel airy and full of light. Inside you’ll feel the simple, refined beauty of the Tuscan decor.

castel monastero executive suite

Suite - 45 to 50 sqm

More than suites, these are private residences. Full immersion in the beauty of Chianti. Inside, the bedroom and separate lounge are furnished with rustic elegance. Outside, you can relax fully in the large private garden, enjoy its scents of aromatic herbs and ivy, and look out over the Tuscan landscape that stretches as far as the eye can see.

Our chef Daniele Canella is expert at interpreting Tuscan tradition to perfection, adding a creative note to each plate that makes it feel modern. In our à la carte and tasting menus, land and sea go well together: veal and red shrimp, duck breast and scallops. The style is elegantly pure with the most delicate flavors and aromas explored.

La Colonna

The ancient stone column that stands in the middle of the restaurant also lent us its name – La Colonna. The atmosphere is quiet, your table is set with light linen, the wine settles in your glass. The show begins when you look up and lose yourself in the view outside the huge windows that frame this unforgettable landscape.


Lounge Bar

The Lounge Bar of the Hotel Le Fontanelle is open all day but is especially nice for an afternoon rest. Afternoon Tea includes a selection of aromatic teas and butter cookies and is served on the large French-upholstered armchairs. Someone might be playing the grand piano, while others enjoy the spectacular view in silence. Lose yourself in one of our art books and before you know it, it will be aperitivo time – that’s when we break out the bubbles, snacks, and good company.


Pool Bar

Sit by the pool, surrounded by the colors of the landscape and the scent of rosemary and lavender, and enjoy a light lunch like a salad, cold meats, cheese, fresh fruit, and a sandwich. The breeze is inviting, the greenery will soothe your eyes, and a fruity wine is all you need to keep the heat at bay.


Belvedere Terrace

Enjoy your pre-dinner aperitivo on our spectacular Belvedere Terrace, overlooking the eternal hills of Chianti. Your glass of wine will taste out of this world.


La Cantinetta Wine Bar & Shop

La Cantinetta Wine Bar & Shop is a space dedicated to the most refined nuances of food and wines. The ruby tone of the great labels – from Amarone to Sassicaia – lies next to the gold color of sparkling wine and champagne.

The intense and fresh scent of local cold cuts on the cutting board will reach you, ready to be tasted, while small jewels to take home are aligned on the shelves. Extra Virgin Olive Oil, balsamic vinegar and honey that encapsulate all the taste of Hotel Le Fontanelle.

Ask our staff to taste the best wines and champagnes in the Lounge Bar and choose the products you loved most in our wine shop, to bring home a little memory of this special place. Our shop is set in a beautiful room carved out of stone with wooden shelves, where you can buy a selection of the best Italian and international wines and champagne, the extra virgin olive oil produced in our estate and other excellent local products.


Wine Cellar

Hotel Le Fontanelle is immersed in the vineyards of the Vallepicciola winery, where we produce 12 varieties of exclusive labels, including: a Chianti Classico DOCG; a Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG; a Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG. Twelve bottles which contain all the sun, energy, and excellence of Tuscany.

The winery fits harmoniously into the nature of Chianti thanks to a successful project of organic architecture conceived and created by the Bolfo Family with the collaboration of architect Margherita Gozzi. During your stay at Le Fontanelle you should ask to visit the 6,000 square meter building inserted so seamlessly into this magnificent setting, where the grapes are harvested and processed to give life to our house wine.

Wine Tour: Visit the winery, the vineyards and barrel room where the wines are left to refine. At the end of the visit, try a selection of Vallepicciola flavors. Upon request we can also arrange private tours with the winemaker where you’ll get to taste our premium wines paired with local meats and cheeses.


Romantic Picnics

A little al fresco escape for two, among the vineyards of our own estate, surrounded by the silence of the green valleys. Bring along one of our exclusive Le Fontanelle picnic baskets packed with fine cheeses, cold cuts, wine, and fresh vegetables.

The Hotel Le Fontanelle offers an outdoor panoramic pool, indoor pool, spa, and fitness center. Heated and at double depth, the indoor pool is graced by large open-arched windows overlooking our vineyard. This is how we pamper you and soothe your fatigue – physical and spiritual. Next to the pool is a hot tub which tones and smoothens the skin. Ideal for getting into shape during your vacation.

At the Hotel Le Fontanelle we love to offer special experiences – exclusive experiences that can turn a regular Tuscan vacation into an unforgettable journey. From complimentary mountain bikes and shuttles to Siena, to golf, wine tours, cooking classes, hot-air ballooning, sports car & vespa tours, horseback-riding etc.

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.

Outdoor Pool

As you approach it, the panoramic pool is like a diamond set into the green of Chianti and all you want to do is dive right in, and rinse away any fatigue. Stop and take a breath – this is the moment when you hit pause from work, commitments and all thoughts.

Castel Monastero Yoga


The spa includes a complete wellness range with heated indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, and gym. Let our team recommend the right combination of treatments and massages. The wooden sauna has a detoxifying heat of up to 80 degrees, with a humidity level of no more than 20%. Essential oils of lavender or mint are added to the circulating water, helping you feel calm and reenergized. The heightened humidity of the air helps the skin to open and breathe, purifying every part of the body in a totally natural way.

The heart of our wellness center is the indoor heated pool: the tepidarium. A transparent temple of pure rest, surrounded by windows that overlook the stunning Sienese hills, with rose-tinted terracotta, and chaises longues for lounging and daydreaming. The hot tub is next to the pool, ready to relax you with its powerful massaging and stimulating jets.

Fitness Center

Botanical Gardens

The Bolfo family, owners of the Hotel Le Fontanelle, have revitalized a two-hectare park that has 350 different species of plants, trees, and medicinal herbs. Roses – dog, wild and Pier de Ronsard – fill the air with their different scents while the oaks, cypresses, holm oaks, and olive trees offer welcome shade from the sun. In one corner of our garden is the old botanic garden, brought back to life by Signorina Giuseppina Bolfo who brought new vigor to native species and planted exotic essences. This is where nuns once grew their herbs, and now you’ll find rosemary, basil, mint, thyme, and lavender. Our chef Daniele Canella comes here each morning to choose the right flavors and aromas to enrich what he’ll be cooking at the La Colonna restaurant.
