On the ridge that separates the Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi, La Fonte is ideally situated for visiting Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Monticchiello and Montalcino.
La Fonte has a great view of the countryside, the hills and the beautiful village of Trequanda, which has retained the charm of the medieval castle while offering all major services.
Trequanda is just 1km from La Fonte, and easily accessible by foot. From here you will be able to discover a unique territory. It is one of the best examples of conservation of architectural and scenic beauty – rich in character, art and culture. It is populated by helpful and welcoming people, who delight in sharing the village’s historical and gastronomic traditions: one of the things that makes it a pleasure to walk around the villages and towns of the surrounding area.
Wandering the streets, accompanied by the profile of the hills and cypress trees, you will discover hidden gems, such as the nearby Val d’Orcia (Unesco heritage) or Pienza, a small Renaissance jewel, and Bagno Vignoni, the Roman and medieval spa town. There’s also the Crete Senesi, with its ancient monasteries and modern spas, all the way up to Siena (approx. 15km away), a gothic-medieval town of rare beauty preserved in an exemplary way. Further still, at about 30km away, is Montepulciano and Montalcino, appreciated not only for great wines (Nobile and Brunello above all) but also for its artistic treasures and way of life; and finally, Valdichiana, where you can discover the vibrant Cortona and Arezzo.
