Located in the Val d’Orcia area, the Fonteverde Tuscan Resort and Spa sits in the south of Tuscany surrounded by beautiful countryside. Perfect for those interested in history, the hotel is close to various medieval villages and archeological sites, such as Sovana and Chiusi. Nature enthusiasts will also have plenty to do in the resort, which offers mountain biking, walking tours, horse riding and golfing.
The resort has 66 rooms, 7 junior suites and 7 suites – two of which are exclusive rooms and include a terrace overlooking the countryside. The Renaissance-style décor is accompanied with modern twists, like pops of brighter, livelier colours that give this 17th century building a more contemporary feel.
The Restaurant Ferdinando I focuses on offering gourmet dining without sacrificing well-being. It’s executive chef, Salvatore Quatro, maintains quality, taste and simplicity in the forefront of his culinary creations while still ascribing to the traditional Italian cuisine flavors. Dessert is not left behind in the search for well-being. Quatro has created an entire dessert menu by using alternative unrefined sugars to make dietary pastries. The resort also has a pool-side café that offers traditional Tuscan lunches and is the perfect place to rest in between swims.
The natural hot-spring spa is arguably the best part of this resort, featuring 7 thermal pools with water from the Fonteverde springs. The spa also makes use of this thermal water in different hydro-therapies in addition to a variety of beauty treatments for the face and body to enhance wellbeing.
