“A wonderful base for your visit to Southern Tuscany”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a lovely (albeit, short) two night stay at Alexandra's house outside of Montalcino. From the moment we arrived, she was very generous and helpful, including offering to meet us at a nearby gas station and lead us to the house, because the address can be somewhat difficult to find. The home is in a stunning location, the photos don't do it justice. These rolling hills are often painted with fog first thing in the morning and it is absolutely breathtaking--and that view is right outside of your bedroom window! The hilltop home dates back to the 12th century when it served as a watchtower for invading troops. The bathroom is very large and modern, and the kitchen is well-equipped for doing your own cooking or just (preferable) pulling together a lovely fresh Tuscan breakfast or picnic. I hope to return to Alexandra's house in Montalcino one day when we can spend more time.

“Paradise in Montalcino”

Absolute perfection. The apartment is perfect - separate entrance with living room, kitchen, bath, private outdoor dining area, and one of the greatest bedroom window views imaginable. Location couldn't be better - 5 minute drive from Montalcino and easy to drive anywhere in Tuscany. We spent a day driving from town to town and couldn't have picked a better home base. Highest recommendation.

“A true gem in the heart of Val d'Orcia!”

It is very difficult to describe in a few words how perfect our stay in fonteaulente was, how delightful is Alexandra as a host (and her husband Michelangelo as well) and how magnifiscent is the estate. The appartment is cosy and functional, the view from the bedroom is just unbelievable, same for the table outside which is perfect for a romantic dinner with a glass (or several) of Brunello, or for a nice breakfast. We had a great contact with Alexandra who knows very well the area and is an expert in the famous wines of Montalcino.
We will stay in touch for sure and will come back, the fitness room is almost ready :) i would definitely recommend a stay in fonte aulente if you want to enjoy Montalcino, val d'Orcia and more over the brunello wine!

Wow, this is the best way to describe Alexandra's and MichelAngelo's place! The view is superb, the garden fantastic and the natural pool and it's surrounding great. On top we were welcomed as family, got some fine tips to eat and drink Brunello wine and regarding the apartment, all was there and clean. This place is the most romantic place I have seen so far in Europe to spend some time and enjoy the Italian life. We recommend it already to friends and family. If you search a place to relax, enjoy nature and Italian delicatessen and feel romantic, go to Fonte Aulente!
