We kindly ask you to let us know if the guests will arrive and leave all together with buses or if they will do it individually with their own car.

BY TRAIN

We offer a free shuttle service from the train station in Siena. If you’re coming from Florence you will need to hire a car or arrange with the hotel for a paid, private transfer.

The closest airport is Amerigo Vespucci in Florence, 90 minutes away. From there you can hire a car or we can arrange a paid, private transfer.

BY HELICOPTER

The Hotel Le Fontanelle is one of the few hotels in Chianti with a private helipad (coordinates: N° 43° 23’ 18.2’’ - EO 11° 23’ 28.6’’).
If you want to arrive with your own helicopter, you just need to request written authorization from the hotel for the pilot of the craft intending to land. This communication is done via a report the pilot will know about (decree law 10.03.88) and can be filled out by the pilot. 
Use of the helipad is free of charge for all hotel guests, as well as the civil guard, fire service, forest rangers, and other authorities. For non-guests, the cost is €150 per landing. The helipad is located within our grounds, just 1.5 km from the main building. Guests can use a free shuttle to get to or from the hotel.

It can be a little hard to find the parking garage of the Hotel Le Fontanelle  - it was built to fit in harmoniously with its surroundings, while also being spacious and functional. It’s in the main section and can fit 20 cars, available at no charge for all our guests.
