Wedding in fontebussiPosted May 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed 2 nights there for family wedding. Beautiful hotel, idyllic setting. Breakfast was great. Facilities fantastic. Downside very difficult to find and to reach without car.internet only available n public areas. Also had problems with the usually very friendly reception over cancellation policy.

Pros: The scenery and calm.
Cons: Poor internet service.
Location: Beautiful villa constructed of brick and stone. Gardens everywhere. Rooms or apartment living.
scenic...absolutely beautiful grounds. Out in the country. Hire a car and driver for a trip to Siena and taste at a winery.

Beautiful placePosted Apr 22, 2011
This was such a great relaxing place. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The view from our room was like something from a Tuscan picture. The only small negative was the hotel restaurant was closed both nights we were there. Beds were very comfortable and room was very nice. Would definitely stay there again.

True Tuscany ExperiencePosted Feb 28, 2011
Magnificent hotel tucked away in the hills of the Chianti region. Marvellous hosts, wonderful rooms, and a fantastic area to dwell for a few days. Absolutely wonderful.

Borgo di Fontebussi - Great Scenery, Bad ServicePosted Jul 29, 2010 on Hotels.com
Location: Siena - beautiful Tuscan city.
As hoped, the scenery and location were beautiful. The food at the restaurant was also quite good and reasonably priced, and the restaurant staff was friendly and professional. Unfortunately, the rest of the hotel was a major disappointment. Pictures of the beautiful pool in such a tranquil Tuscan setting may be a major selling point for those seeking a romantic getaway, but if you’re expecting to spend relaxing afternoons lounging by the poolside, you will be disappointed. The pool was overrun with (very loud) families during the day, and it closes at 7:30 pm. (Why?) The pool bar carries many types of liquor, but we were told that they do not stock any juices. (Again, why?) So much for a nice, juicy libation while enjoying the sunshine. Most of the hotel staff seemed to be under 25, and nothing was staffed after 11pm or so. If you have a problem at night, good luck. The walls were thin, the noise starts early, and everything costs extra. They even had the gall to charge a fee for an extra towel at the pool! If you’re looking for a cheap (quality, not price) family hotel, this might be the place for you. If you’re looking for a romantic time in Tuscany, however, you should probably look elsewhere.

Would Definitely Go BackPosted Apr 22, 2010
The hotel was really nice and exactly like the pictures. The staff was friendly and gave great suggestions on things to do. The food at the hotel restaurant was really delicious!

Off the beaten track but very attractivePosted Sep 18, 2009
We had a lovely long weekend here - the hotel and apartments have been very cleverly created from a former village up in the hills but not too far from the major routes. Beautiful scenery and very clean and well kept with an excellent restaurant and staff. Only one minor minus would be the pylons stretched across the best view, but if you can put up with that it is well worth a visit.

What a wonderful place !Posted Sep 3, 2009 on Hotels.com
This is a truly wonderful place to stay. The views are spectacular, it's peaceful and yet not very far from all you need. The bedrooms are very dark (like a typical Tuscan farmhouse) but this can be a blessing on a hot day in August . The food at dinner was fantastic and not overpriced when you consider the view as you eat. Breakfast is not as good and they have a terrible problem with wasps which means you have to eat inside, or be constantly bothered and that spoils the view. It's located about 15 mins away from the motorway to Florence which although a toll road, is the quickest route to the north. Would go back in a second.

A Perfect Tuscan GetawayPosted Aug 20, 2009
This hotel is beautiful! Located on top of the Tuscan hills in Chianti...it was the perfect retreat. You can find little gem restaurants all around by car, and the local people are really nice. The pool is just as beautiful as the pictures on the Web site. In fact, it's more beautiful in person!
