about

Fontemaggio is a 17th century stone Casa Colonica set on a hillside, surrounded by 2 acres of mature landscaped gardens that merge into the sunflowers, vineyards and olive groves beyond. There are terraces on all sides, each with its own dining table and breathtaking views of a landscape that seems to have changed little throughout the centuries, including a lake and a Renaissance castle on a hill. Sympathetically restored, the house retains a wealth of terracotta floors and chestnut beams. The pool, surrounded by fragrant rosemary hedging and lemon trees, benefits from the sun for the entire day. Set amongst mature pines, cypress and olives, it enjoys tranquil views of the Tuscan and Umbrian hills in complete seclusion. The medieval hilltop village of Monterchi, featured in ‘The Most Beautiful Villages in Tuscany’ (Thames and Hudson), is minutes away. You will find Fontemaggio a blissfully relaxing holiday home from home.
