Renting vacation villas near bagni, thermal baths, Celle sul Rigo in Italy

La Fontelina is a stupendous country house, built around 1600 by Benedictine monks; it takes its name from a mineral spring in the garden, which feeds its private thermal pool. Surrounded by a marvellous lawned garden, it provides peaceful and exclusive accommodation in one of Tuscany's most beautiful areas.


  • Sits undisturbed on a 2.5 acres block of land
  • Has a private thermal pool



La Fontelina is located within a farming estate which raises premium cattle, but is very distant from the farming activity.

The property is completely fenced and surrounded by a huge, magnificent lawn punctuated by mature mulberry, cypresses, elm, fruit and olive trees. A majestic oak dominates the front of the house, while borders of rose and lavender bushes, jasmine vines adorn the front and sides of the beautiful stone exteriors.

Outdoor furniture is set on the back terrace and in the garden, while there are some great relaxation and meditation spots scattered around the lawn, such as benches or seats under an elm tree. The pool (5 x 10m) is of course the most relaxing spot: bordered by rose and lavender bushes, it has a constant temperature of 28°C / 83°F and fantastic views over the nearby hills. It is at some distance from the house, so peace and quiet are assured.

The house is a five bedroom family home, where the owners and their friends used to get together on many occasions and, although it is rented for most of the year, they are still very attached to it. The open fireplaces, the traditional beam ceilings, the beautiful terracotta tile floors and the antique furniture give the house an elegant and cosy ambience.

Palazzone is a small characteristic Tuscan village in the hills below San Casciano dei Bagni. A tiny centre with just two cafes, bars, some well stocked general stores, post and some excellent local wine cellars, it has everything one could wish for on a self-catering holiday.

The village is practically closed to traffic being a medieval town with very narrow roads. As a result the central piazza is a lively place for locals to meet for a coffee and converse. The local area has sport fields, tennis courts and some lovely country walks.

We offer a selection of rental villas in the Palazzone area including some that are walking distance from the village.
