About the property

Come and experience your idyllic Tuscan holiday in beautiful surroundings

Come and enjoy a taste of authentic country life. 'La Fonte' is a Tuscan romantic stone country house set amongst olive groves and vineyards on the edge of the stunning Cecina river valley. It is a natural environment where it is still possible to hear the tinkling of sheep bells. We are offering the whole of the top floor of the farmhouse - this includes 3 double bedrooms, two shower-rooms, a large lounge and well equipped kitchen, making it a spacious comfortable stay for six people. There is an outdoor dining area in the garden with table and chairs where one can enjoy a meal and a glass of wine while watching the stunning sunset behind the rolling hills . There is plenty of space in the garden for quiet reading and sunbathing also. Here you can appreciate the calmness and serenity of life.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all available upon request. Our wholesome meals are made with our own organic produce including cereals, vegetables, fruit, herbs, oil and wine.

We charge € 5 per person for breakfast and between €25 and €40 for main meals (this includes our organic farm produced house wine).

About Marco and Emanuela Garosi

Marco purchased Podere La Fonte in 1976. Since then together with his wife Emanuela they have worked with passion to make it into the superb property it is today - a self-sustaining organic farm harnessing the produce and a style of life which they are willing to make available to their guests.

Marco and Emanuela Garosi purchased this farmhouse in 1976

Why Marco and Emanuela Garosi chose Radicondoli

Marco grew up in Rome and had started his studies in Agriculture in Perugia when he found this unique spot close to this lovely village, immersed in such beauty. It is here he decided to realize his dream for a sustainable agricultural path. The main current products are organic oil and wine and a whole variety of vegetables and fruit. Emanuela also has a passion for herbs from which she creates delicious infusions.

What makes this farmhouse unique

La Fonte is a stone throw from Radicondoli. After a day’s sight seeing you can leave your car and relax in the village and enjoy a glass of wine or a meal with no worries. There are festival times in the spring and summer months with cultural events, street parties and communal open air eating both in Radicondoli and local villages. May 1st is a special time with singing and picnicking. To be able to walk to these events is a real treat. There is no other farm so near the village and Marco and Emanuela themselves take full advantage of this.

Marco and Emanuela are amazing! We wish we would have booked our stay here for a longer period of time. The property is lovely, the views truly are breath-taking, the home is clean and spacious, and the hosts are like family. The property is full of fruit trees, olive trees and grape vines. We highly recommend booking a cooking class with Marco and Emanuela - we had so much fun preparing the food, then we got to relax and eat! We were able to walk to town in less than ten minutes to shop or go to dinner. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience.

Radicondoli is a small, picturesque town which also has everything you need for a holiday base. Within easy walking distance of the accommodation there are three excellent restaurants, a small supermarket, a good delicatessen, a bakery and other shops – bank, post office, newsagent tobacconist, doctor surgery and a pharmacy. Larger shops, supermarkets and street markets are in easy reach at Colle Val d’Elsa and Poggibonsi.

From La Fonte you can admire the rolling Tuscan hills with distant views of San Gimignano and Volterra and many other villages nestling in the hills all around you. Florence is one hour away and Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano just forty minutes by road. Lovely local walks and natural pools in the nearby river Cecina. There are swimming pools within easy reach and in an hour you can drive to and enjoy sandy beaches just like the ancient Etruscan people did. We find that often people did not realize that such magnificent Mediterranean coast is within about an hour's drive. After a hot day on the beach it so soothing to come back to the cool, clean and welcoming home base. As an alternative the river Cecina is a ten minute drive and there are delicious small pools of water where you can refresh yourself and enjoy the wonderful natural environment.

We are always available to meet your needs and to advise you as to how best to enjoy your time here. However, we also respect your privacy and won't intrude.
