We are David and Toby, your hosts at Fonte Martino Guest House & Estate.
Originally from the United States, we both left successful careers to take a risk for a new life that would nourish our souls. In 2009 we began a journey to realize our dream of living in Italy, creating a new home, and opening a unique guest house. Over the next few years we made many trips searching for the perfect place to call home. We visited several regions across Italy but our hearts always drew us back to Tuscany. During our visit in 2016, our real estate agent and now lovely friend Cristina, brought us to a small estate located minutes from Montepulciano. As soon as we laid eyes on it and its panoramic views, we were in love and knew we found our dream home.
Our journey has been full of laughter, loss, and excitement, including filming “The Full Montepulciano”, our episode of HGTV’s House Hunters International!
So, this of course is the condensed version of our story. We have many stories to share and will happily do so over a glass of wine…Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, of course! We hope you visit us at Fonte Martino. It will be our pleasure to make your holiday as relaxing and memorable as possible…
