Progress is happening quickly here at Fonte Martino! If you remember Part 1 of our Renovation Update, it focused on the exciting things happening on our grounds. Well, we are very excited about Part 2 because we are finally going to reveal the interior of the Montepulciano Suite!
The inspiration for this space is to provide a tranquil retreat with warm colors that complement the Tuscan sunrise, which you can be viewed from the suite. Named after our hometown, the artwork and décor are meant to reflect the true spirit of Montepulciano – a place where old-world meets modern luxury.
The Montepulciano Suite, located on the ground floor of the main house, is accessed through a private garden and terrace. Upon entering, you are greeted with a spacious lounge and elegant well-appointed kitchen complete with handmade cabinetry. The lounge is a place to unwind after a long day of sightseeing and includes a plush sofa that converts into a queen-size bed for those extra travelers. Located just off the lounge is a charming half-bath which used to be the previous owner’s wine cellar!
Passing through the lounge, you enter a serene bedroom. The elegant queen bed is made of solid wrought iron with soft lines giving it a sense of lightness and fluidity. Complete with luxury linens, you will easily be whisked off to dreamland. The bedroom includes handmade French doors that open onto the private landscaped terrace and courtyard. While in bed, you can enjoy the magnificent Tuscan sunrises that appear over the mountains and illuminates the olive grove. For the cooler months, there is a modern fireplace to enjoy for those romantic evenings…
Through the bedroom, you enter the wardrobe and expansive master bath. The wardrobe is equipped with a large closet that is illuminated from within. There is a full-length antiqued mirror that completes the wardrobe to ensure you look fabulous for those delicious Tuscan dinners.
The wardrobe flows into the expansive master bath. Enjoy relaxing in the deep European soaking tub, letting stress just melt away. If you prefer, use the dual chromotherapy showers, choosing between the rainfall and/or waterfall settings. The large dual sink vanity gives ample room to place your belongings. To complete the experience, we are pleased to offer Salvatore Ferragamo’s Tuscan Soul spa products. These luxury products combine Italian ingredients which include tangy citrus blended with refined florals and precious woody notes.
We hope that you enjoyed this tour of the Montepulciano Suite… Creating this space has been a labor of love as we thought through every detail. We sincerely hope that it exceeds your expectations.
We can’t wait until we can take you on a similar journey through the Cortona and Siena Suites in the Spring! Until then, we will leave you with this: We have two big announcements coming next weekend! Here’s a clue: one of the announcements is a “repeat”. Please watch our blog and social media – you won’t want to miss them!
