For people wanting a true taste of Tuscany, these mini apartments provide the perfect position between town and country. Centered around a charming garden courtyard, each apartment has an out door patio furnished with a table and chairs, there is a convenient BBQ. The apartments come with every convenience, they are spacious, good quality, cheerful and well located.

With in the original medieval walls of Sinalunga the complex has been restored from an ancient ware house that was built next to a noble palace. Fonte Bardini gets it’s name from a fountain that is supplied by a natural spring underneath the property. The fountain has remained in it’s present form since 1265.

Each apartment has traditional terracotta floors and chestnut beams overhead. They all have their own washing machine and dishwasher. Care has been taken with the decoration using a cheerful blue and yellow color scheme that fits well with the environment. The furniture and fittings are all good quality and thoughtfully placed.


The garden is well established with charming pergolas covered with wisteria and other climbing vines, lawn areas and flower beds. The pool has it’s own terrace, a bit away from the main courtyard. It is well furnished with umbrellas and sun lounges and also has out door showers. It commands an impressive view of the Val di Chiana towards Cortona. It is an organic shape but roughly 10 x 5 meters, max. deep 1.75 meters.
From the main courtyard is also a very beautiful 18th century stair case with pediment that leads through a gate way, directly into the heart of the medieval part of Sinalunga.

In the alley behind is a delicious pasticceria (cake shop), a bread shop, a small general store and a butcher. In the main piazza are two bars serving wonderful coffees and cocktails and every Tuesday is the farmers market with fruit, vegetables, cured meat and cheeses as well as sundry items, clothes and small goods. With in walking distance are several good restaurants and pizzerias.

As the medieval centers of these types of farmers towns have been strictly protected, Sinalunga is almost as it was hundreds of years ago. It’s churches, theatre, alley ways and piazzas are a delight to explore. Due to it’s defensive position, from turn to turn are unexpected and breath taking views of the surrounding hills and valleys. It is a real living place that has always serviced the surrounding community, it has not been exploited for tourist purposes like other more well known villages.
