Very memorable vacation and wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We plan to be back! What a great experience for us and we've been telling our friends about it! We truely appreciate all the reviews written about this property and their experience with Fonsi and Enzo, because we pretty much followed all the good advice to enjoy our holiday to the fullest in Florence and its surrounding areas in beautiful Tuscany! Here is a list of what we enjoyed about our stay:

1) Wonderful location of the property up on the hills with a fantastic view and fresh country air everyday. Lovely decorated and very clean accommodations and amenities. We love the salt water pool, our family swam everyday to work out an appetite for Fonsi's cooking!

2) Fonsi's home cooked Tuscan meals with ingredients fresh from her garden and whatever she can get from the market. We signed up for breakfast and dinner everyday. We didn't have to fuss about finding restaurants, or competing with the summer tourist crowds for parking and reservations, or worry about grocery shopping, cooking & cleaning. For our vacation, we focused on relaxing, sightseeing, and eating fine home made local food and drinking chianti.

3) Fonsi and Enzo's hospitality made us feel at home. They made sure we enjoyed the best of their property, their cuisine and offered great advice on sightseeing. I didn't realize there is a Gucci outlet mall, along with other big brand names like Prada, in close vicinity until Fonsie told us about it!

4) Pedro, their dog. As animal lovers, we get our pet fix everyday with Pedro. He is a sweetheart and great at playing soccer. He spontaneously joined our group picture on our last day.

We highly recommend this property for a vacation!

Il Faeto-A beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house and gardens-who couldn't?! Round every corner there are glorious views over the surrounding countryside. However, it was the hosts Fonzie and Enzo who made our holiday really special. Every day we had the lovely surprise of some delicious Italian food and wine being put on the table and they couldn't do enough to cater for our food allergies (coeliac and nut allergy). They work so hard to make the gardens so beautiful. The weather was really hot and we made good use of the lovely pool area each afternoon after we had done our sightseeing in Florence early each morning. A lovely holiday-thank you so much to Fonzie and Enzo-a holiday to remember! Liz, Gary, Matt and Anna Lowe, West Midlands UK

The Il Faeto Adventure

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to verbalize our great experience at Il Faeto but we will try our best. It was an amazing adventure- one of the greatest experiences we've ever had.

From the first time we met Alfonsina and Enzo they made us feel comfortable and welcome. They graciously shared their beautiful villa, spectacular grounds, and view with us.

The guest residences are private, spacious, clean, and elegantly decorated. In addition to the beautiful home you have access to a lovely full surrounded by beautiful flowers.

As great as all the above items were, nothing can surpass the meals and friendship that we experienced. While we originally thought we would have a couple of breakfast and dinners prepared by "Fonzie", once we had the first three course dinner we knew we wanted to eat every meal at her dining room table. The food was locally sourced, everything was fresh and the meals were "5+++++STARS." She is an amazing shaft. After dinner, we always asked Fonzie and Enzo to join us and share wine and stories with us. This was a favorite part of our day.

Another nice part of the visit was playing with their lovable boxer Pedro. It all felt like home.

Gorgeous house in woodland high in the hills above Florence with cooling breezes and lovely views

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place in all respects - probably the best house we've stayed anywhere. Coming in July, we didn't expect the garden to look as green and fresh as it does in the photographs, but it was every bit as lovely. The situation is amazing, 1,800 ft up in wooded hills teeming with wildlife including deer and wild boar, yet only 12 miles/ 45 mins drive from the centre of Florence. After hot days' sightseeing in the city it was lovely to come back here to savour the cooling breeze, amazing views, tranquility, a refreshing dip in the pool and Fonzie's wonderful cooking. Fonzie and Enzo are wonderful hosts, doing everything to ensure a perfect stay. Fonzie cooked for us every night: it was lovely to be able to eat wonderful food without having to drive out to a restaurant or cook ourselves. So relaxing. The rooms were comfortable and clean. And not to forget Pedro, probably the world's softest dog!

Excellent location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience at IL Faeto! Fonzie and Enzo are the best hosts. If you go to Tuscany do not go unless you stay at Il Faeto. We were a family of 10 and it was great space, gorgeous pool, and beyond good food. We have never had a better dining experience in our lives. We stayed at Il Faeto for 6 nights and ate there 6 nights because the food was so amazing. By the time we left, we felt like it was our house and Enzo and Fonzie were our family. I promise it will not disappoint!

Welcome to paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our hostess, Fonzy, greeted us with "Welcome to paradise". She was 100% right. It WAS paradise!!! Situated near the top of a Tuscan mountain, Il Faeto has incredible views, and gorgeous grounds, filled with carefully cultivated roses. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and bathrooms for all. We very much appreciated Fonzy's talents as a chef, and Enzo's extensive wine knowledge, as well as his cellar. Feels remote, but very close to Florence. We can't wait to come back to paradise!
