The elegant Designhotel Villa Fontelunga is located uphill above the valley Val di Chiana with a stunning views of the valley and Cortona. Nine individually designed guest rooms in the hotel as well as the three private villas, allocated in short driving distance to the hotel, give a convenient balance between privacy and sociability. The owners are at the guests´ disposal and glaldy supervise in terms of restaurants, shopping and sightseeing tours. Two times a week a festive dinner is commemorated for all guests. The villa has evolved from the past mansion „Pandronale”. The owners bought the villa and the 2,2 hectare property in the late 1990s. They did not only renovate the house, but also the garden and the pool with their own concept. Traditional architecture was connected with modern design. One finds eight double bedrooms in the main building. Every room is located in a corner of the house which provides two window sides for each of them. They are also defined with individual colours, e.g. gold, blue or lavender. The colour scheme crosses the whole room in fabric, bedspread, curtains and also in paintings. In contrast to the strong colours, the rooms possess terracotta floors and a artificial combination of modern and antique furniture. In the late pigeonry one finds the Diamont Suite, that offers space for two persons as well.
The sunlight shines though the windows that used to be entrances, onto silver-gray fabric and countless glass beads on the ceiling which creates a fascinating atmosphere in the room. The suite possesses its own little terrace. Every bathroom is decorated in a very modern style with marble and chandeliers. One of the highlights are the luxury products of the brand Molton Brown. The ground floor of the hotel is an open lobby-lounge, reception and „living room” for the guests at the same time. The lounge opens up to the terrace in the south. On cooler nights you one can enjoy a cosy atmoshere at the open fireplace and oriental cushions under the airscoop. The garden with its well tended English lawn and the fragrant bushes continues into the endless olive grove of the villa. Just a few steps below the terrace there is the pool, that is displayed with beige tesseras. Here guests have the opportunity to unwind while having a cup of tea, a cocktail, while reading a book, sunbathing or just enjoying the splendid landscape of Tuscany. Rates from 160 EUR/day
