Fontanelle is without doubt one of our loveliest Tuscan properties. It is located to the west of Montalcino, an area renowned for its beauty and for its wines, especially the famous Brunello di Montalcino. The property is in a spectacular position, surrounded by vineyards, olive trees, cypresses and with views of the surrounding hills. The house has recently been restored and furnished to an exceptionally high standard by the owner, a well-known Italian interior designer. The house has been featured in several books and magazines, including House and Garden, Elle Decor and Tuscany Interiors. The rooms have been painted and furnished throughout in warm yellows and terracottas, which blend perfectly with the brick tiled floors, exposed beams and sunny open spaces. The magnificent living room with vaulted ceilings opens to the rear of the house to a pretty terrace with vines, pots of flowers and views over the countryside. Off this terrace is a covered dining terrace, also with wonderful views.
