About Emanuela e Marco Garosi
Marco purchased Podere La Fonte in 1976. Since then together with his wife Emanuela they have worked with passion to make it into the superb property it is today - a self-sustaining organic farm harnessing the produce and a style of life which they are willing to make available to their guests.
Emanuela e Marco Garosi purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1976
Why Emanuela e Marco Garosi chose Radicondoli
Marco grew up in Rome and had started his studies in Agriculture in Perugia when he found this unique spot close to this lovely village, immersed in such beauty. It is here he decided to realise his dream for a sustainable agricultural path. The main current products are organic oil and wine and a whole variety of vegetables and fruit. Emanuela also has a passion for herbs from which she creates delicious infusions.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
La Fonte is a stone throw from Radicondoli. After a day’s sight seeing you can leave your car and relax in the village and enjoy a glass of wine or a meal with no worries. There are festival times in the spring and summer months with cultural events, street parties and communal open air eating both in Radicondoli and local villages. May 1st is a special time with singing and picnicking. To be able to walk to these events is a real treat. There is no other farm so near to the village and Marco and Emanuela themselves take full advantage of this.

ReviewsThis property doesn't have any reviews yet.
Radicondoli is a small, picturesque town which also has everything you need for a holiday base. Within easy walking distance of the accommodation there are three excellent restaurants, a small supermarket, a good delicatessen, a bakery and other shops – bank, post office, newsagent tobacconist, doctor surgery and a pharmacy. Larger shops, supermarkets and street markets are in easy reach at Colle Val d’Elsa and Poggibonsi.
From La Fonte you can admire the rolling Tuscan hills with distant views of San Gimignano and Volterra and many other villages nestling in the hills all around you. Florence is one hour away and Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano just forty minutes by road. Lovely local walks and natural pools in the nearby river Cecina. There are swimming pools within easy reach and in an hour you can drive to and enjoy sandy beaches just like the ancient Etruscan people did. We find that often people do not realize that such magnificent Mediterranean coast is within about one hour’s drive. After a hot day on the beach it so soothing to come back to the cool, clean and welcoming home base. As an alternative the river Cecina is a ten minute drive and there are delicious small pools of water where you can refresh yourself and enjoy the wonderful natural environment.
For horse riding lovers there is an excellent professional riding school within 15 minutes drive well equipped to satisfy all needs for adults and children.
We are always available to meet your needs and to advise you as to how best to enjoy your time here. However, we also respect your privacy and won't intrude.
