This is our last and best job. Two winters rebuilding an ancient barn, now turned in a typical Tuscan country house. Wooden ceilings, terracotta floors and… the famous Borgo Fajani amazing view on the valley.
Three double rooms and three bathrooms on the first floor ; at the ground floor a big kitchen, a huge open-space living room with fireplace and a separate space for extra double sofa-bed with bathroom. Plus a wonderful private big covered terrace with kitchen and bbq facing the valley.
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 lovely break in the countryside of Tuscany
Alfredo was an excellent host and we were very happy with our accommodation.
The beautiful weather and wonderful sunrises each morning across the countryside were a joy.
We enjoyed a meal cooked by a local lady (Sandra) who came into the villa to cook for us. This was excellent value; and she left the food all ready for us and thoroughly cleaned up before she left too!! I would highly recommend this; a perfect end to a busy day sightseeing; all you need to do is serve the food, open the wine and enjoy :)
Recommend a trip to Florence and also Lucca.
Excellent property in great location
Previously we've always booked somewhere on its own with a private pool and decided on Borgo Fajani because we felt our teenagers might appreciate more people around, so we weren't quite sure how we would feel about this choice. We never regretted a moment. The combination of a quality single villa in a group sharing a pool and with a small restaurant in a small hamlet proved perfect. The view is superb. In the foreground is the gentle activity of a working mixed farm (vineyards, orchard etc), a couple of miles to the East the hilltop town of Peccioli and to the distant South the hills around Volterra. Alfredo is a kind and thoughtful host and a good communicator in the period leading up the hire. Of all the villas we've hired in Tuscany and Umbria over the years, this is the one we would be most likely to go back to.
Alfredo was very helpful and accommodating. Views from the house were amazing and just how we had envisioned Tuscany. The house was perfect and plenty big for eight of us. My kids loved the farm down the hill. Highly recommended!
Location is well maintained and clean. Alfredo is a caring person who is very helpful and giving advice on any questions you may have. The apartment is spacious and comfortable and we were feeling very well during our stay. The pool was clean and each apartment has a separate terrace and Barbecue. The setting is picturesque in a small old city with a very special Restaurant next door. It is a perfect place for daytrips or also just to relax a couple of days. For those who are cyclists the area is perfect for tours through the wine yards around.
Beautiful views, helpful owner!
I cannot say enough about this lovely property. When we arrived and walked in the door, we felt at home and relaxed. There were 5 of us, 2 children. The views were spectacular, the hamlet was charming, the property was very clean and tidy, and had everything we needed. The children loved the pool, the animals on the farm, and their room. The owner Alfredo was so kind and helpful. He was around often, and gave great suggestions for day trips. He arranged a cook for dinner one night - delicious! The winery next door gave a great tour and tasting. The location was perfect for us, with several places to choose from to go everyday, usually all within an hours drive. We would love to go back again. Thanks!
