About the property

Borgo Fajani farm houses

Set In the heart of Tuscany countryside, at the top of a hill, overlooking vineyards and olive groves. A group of typical farmhouses, once home of the local farmers and now completely restored maintaining the Tuscan rustic feel.

From the houses, the gardens and the patios the “postcard like” view is absolutely breathtaking: Borgo Fajani is the south facing part of Casanova, a small and quiet country hamlet. It is the perfect location for days of relaxation as well as an excellent base for exploring the region. Tuscany’s main towns are within close proximity: San Gimignano, Pisa, Florence Lucca and Siena are all within a 40 miles distance, as well as the seaside which his only 30 miles away. Tirrenia Golf Club is just 40 minutes driving far.

A great place.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to visit the towns of Florence, all within an hour. Quiet but quickly onto main roads. Back for a swim, relax by the pool, very nice area. Then good simple meals in nearby villages.

Alfredo the owner very helpful with fluent English.

In a small hamlet with working farm, so very fresh milk, eggs and also cheese.

A secret gem in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem that I almost don't want to share with others because I want to save it for myself. The hospitality is great and all, but the real amazing luxury with this place is that it is so calm, so beautiful and 100% authentic. You actually talk a walk across the road to buy wine, you walk 30 meters from the house to buy fresh cheese and milk and you borrow a bike every single morning and bike to get the breakfast panne. Absolutely perfect everything.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 10 days at Casa Lanciotto. Perfect location for Florence, wine routes, beach, Sienna, San Gimignano, mountains. House was comfortable and the view from the kitchen balcony just stunning. Enjoyed the swimming pool, and also had lovely evenings drinking sundowners and eating on the garden terrace. Great restaurants close by as well as wineries to visit. September weather was perfect. Finally, Alfredo is a great host, always available to help, and full of good ideas and local knowledge to help plan trips. we were sad to leave...

Welcoming, the feeling of being at home, clean, wanting to return, sunny, warm.

  • 5 of 5

A holiday to remember where Alfredo made you feel welcome and for whom nothing was too much trouble. He was on sight every day and if there was a problem, how ever small, it sorted asap. The location was sublime and the views to die for. Looking out from our balcony you could see for miles over the Tuscan country side, there was even a view from the loo!! The swimming pool was spotless and shared the view. The villa is part of a small ancient hill community and literally 50 meters down the narrow road was a small but perfectly formed family run restaurant which was open 4 or 5 nights a week. Two for pizza's and the others more traditional and one with music, it was great. Plenty of shops and eating places nearby and a location I would recommend to anyone, whatever their age.

Most Extraordinary Experience

  • 5 of 5

We haven't stopped gushing about our stay at Borgo Fajani! Our restored farmhouse had all of the old-world charm and the new-world comforts we needed. We rose to the sounds of birds, dined on fresh eggs and cheese from the shop down the road, and soaked in the spectacular views of vineyards, olive trees and rolling hills. The house was not only well-equipped, but cool and comfortable in the hot summer heat.

As others have written, this is the perfect location to explore other sights. We took day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Siena, and Florence. But the days we enjoyed most were probably those close to our home base. We attended the wine festival in Terricciola and tasted at local wineries. Alfredo gave us some wonderful visiting tips (do read his booklet of recommendations) and we thoroughly enjoyed dining at the restaurant within the hamlet.

Don't hesitate to book. It's simply wonderful.

Outstanding property

  • 4 of 5

I cannot say enough about how lovely this property is. We were a party of 4 including 2 teenage girls. There was something for everyone.

Peace and tranquillity for the adults and shopping and excitement in Florence for the girls .Fantastic views from every window and a charming little restaurant just a few steps away. Alfredo was always available and so helpful.Nothing was a problem for him . We hope to return !
