Tenuta di Sticciano is a historic estate of noble origins in the Florentine Chianti area and is one of the residences of the group Fonti – Tuscany Country Resort: a prestigious project enhancing the authentic Tuscan style hospitality accompanied by all the excellent food and wine products that this unique region can boast.
Silky hills and magical landscapes surround our wonderful estate where tranquility meets art and tradition. The estate is located in the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, in the Valdelsa’s territory – known for its hilly landscapes, rich in vineyards and olive groves, and for its medieval and poetic corners: the renowned city of San Gimignano is only 22 km away, while the medieval village of Certaldo – also known for being Boccaccio’s birthplace – is only 10 km from our estate.
Whether it’s practicing some good healthy fitness in contact with the most unspoiled nature, relaxing with a massage in our spa center or simply savoring the tranquility with local specialties and a good book to read, at Tenuta di Sticciano there are many ways to enjoy the magical serenity of a Tuscan getaway in total safety.
Our love for the area in which we both live and work and the desire that future generations may love it as much as we do leads us to create and share organic products, with very high-quality standards: all our production ranging from oil, wine, vegetables to organic products designed for cosmetics and body care, reflect the nature’s authenticity and its freshness. Characteristics that are then brought to the table, both in our restaurant and in the estate’s bar.
Living in our territory even for a few days means finding time for yourself while discovering all the wonders of this place. It means listening to the music of nature, losing yourself in a sunset and savoring a unique and charming environment through our wines or local foods, living the moments with our experiences and breathing some ancient history.
