Villa Fonteblanda can accommodate up to 20 guests over its 3 floors.

The ground floor includes the main dining room, main sitting room featuring an antique fireplace to keep guests cozy on cooler evenings, a TV room, and the kitchen. The kitchen is fully-equipped with professional-grade appliances for the gourmands in the group.

On the first floor, the master apartment can be found, outfitted with its own kitchenette with fridge, a private living room, and two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The master bedroom’s ensuite bathroom is distinguished by its clawfoot bathtub, a separate shower, and a double sink. The other bedroom’s ensuite bathroom has a shower that is ideal for those with limited accessibility.

Five more bedrooms are located on the first floor. Three of these rooms offer garden views, each with an ensuite bathroom. The other two bedrooms share their own private bathroom.

The last three bedrooms are located on the second floor. Two of these bedrooms are suits, each with its own living room with sofa beds, which can be used for extra guests.

Villa Fonteblanda’s gardens compose the 4 hectares of grounds that envelope the villa. There are several sitting areas, including the main terrace in front of the villa where up to 20 guests can dine alfresco in the shade of the secular pine, palm and wild olive trees. The ‘Winter Garden’ is an alfresco dining area that has been shielded from the wind, specifically designed so that guests can enjoy meals mid-season. Of the many sitting areas, the pergola in the ‘Rose Garden’ is a perfect location to take in the views and relax, while others may prefer to take in a drink in the lounge area near the pool. The vegetable garden produces fresh vegetables used by the villa’s chef.
