History

Gaiole is a picturesque town in the Chianti region attracting visitors from all over the world thanks to the Eroica, a special bike race with vintage bicycles that takes place on the first Sunday of October. The Eroica has been conceived and realised in the name of the love for bikes of Giancarlo Brocci, owner of La Fonte del Cieco B&B.
La Fonte del Cieco, as much as Eroica, was born to pay homage to the local history and tradition and to rediscover the authentic roots of the Tuscan style made of simplicity, rich in history and culture, and its great people’s soul.


Its intimate cozy spaces and the typical materials of the Tuscan style (cotto tile floors, wrought-iron bed frames, precious wood interiors) offer an atmosphere of old times traditions.
The building, housing La Fonte del Cieco, is a traditional 19th-century house with a little garden with pergola that has been converted according to the Tuscan tradition.

 

The rooms in rural Tuscan style, the bar and its outside tables tell a story revealing the passion and the love for the territory.
