Hide away in your own Tuscan garden at Fontanella. Reached by a scenic gravel road, the restored four-bedroom farmhouse between Siena and Arezzo features stunning outdoor spaces like a vegetable garden, kitchen garden, courtyard and pool, and its interiors are furnished with an unexpected mix of Italian and Asian antiques.

Whether you have a green thumb or not, youll appreciate fresh produce from the villas vegetable garden, the scent of aromatics wafting from the kitchen garden and the lush lawn stretching to a pool surrounded by lounges and umbrellas. Although breakfast and lunch are included, theres an outdoor wood oven and stone barbecue for al fresco dining, and two patio areas for dining. Inside, Wi-Fi access and satellite TV mean you can stay connected.

A separate living room, library and TV room mean theres always a quiet place to relax. Many of the living rooms have fireplaces, including one dramatic two-sided hearth, as well as original beamed ceilings and cotto floors. Patterned rugs and clean-lined sofas mix comfortably with antique wood screens, chairs and objets and artwork from both Italy and the Far East. The fully equipped kitchen is ready to cook up produce from the garden.

The villas four bedrooms balance rustic beamed ceilings, built-in bookshelves and floral fabrics with traditional Asian paintings and furniture. Three of the bedrooms have double beds; one of those has an en-suite bathroom and the other two have access to bathrooms. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds and an en-suite bathroom.

If youd like to try even more local specialties, Fontanella is about a mile from the nearest restaurant; if youve already tried them all, the villa is about 2 miles from the tennis court at Castello di Gargonza. Its a 4-mile drive to the supermarket and dining in Monte San Savino, 21 miles to Arezzo and 23 miles to the sights of Siena.

                                                          Stephanie S.

                                                          We absolutely loved our stay at Fontenella. It was just what I was hoping for and the house is beautiful. We were concerned that there was no air conditioning but there were fans and it was very comfortable at night. We feel in love with the area and the little villages close by, we can't wait to go back. The only problem for us were the bugs and bees. It is a very wooded area and there are a lot of bugs! Including a scorpian we found in the house. In addition the house is lined with lavender which is lovely but attracts tons of bees. My son was stung our first night there and we didn't feel we could ever eat outside and we were always worried about it.
