All rooms are air conditioned and have private bathrooms.

The property is divided into a main building with 3 bedrooms, large lounge with dining area and kitchen and 3 bathrooms and an annex in which there is a large living room with double sofa bed, a bedroom with private bathroom and another kitchen.

On the ground floor there is also a dining room which overlooks the rear garden of the villa where the owners, who live with their very nice dog in a portion of the Villa, organize sometimes lunches and dinners.

The outdoor space of the Villa offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills and ensures as well to enjoy the landscaped garden and the large swimming pool (shared with the owners who live in a portion of the Villa) equipped with sun beds, deckchairs and umbrellas.

One of the owners of the Villa is a chef and she organizes tipical Tuscan dinners for their guests/welcome dinners.

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!

Villa I'll Faeto is a hidden treasure nestled above Florence Italy

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful stay in Florence thanks to the hospitality of the the owners, Enzo and Fonzi Ferri. Fabulous accommodations! Fonzi and Enzo formerly owned a restaurant in Florence and Fonzi demonstrated her excellent cooking skills for us. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner every day. Amazing! Hope to return again soon. Would recommend to anyone looking for a viola in Tuscany....serenity, beautiful views, welcoming hosts. AAAA+. FIVE STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Malcolm and Georganne Raupp May 2017

No words could ever describe!

  • 5 of 5

I love Tuscany! Fonzi and Enzo are two of the most amazing host I have ever had! Il Feato is so much more than I could have ever imagined! Not only is the property absolutely beautiful, so is the villa. We had 7 people with our group and it was amazing. I will cherish every moment that we were granted at this home! Mil Gratis Fonzi and Enzo! We will be friends forever!

Best Family Vacation of our Lives

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional. Perfection. Exceeded our expectations. It's hard to know where to start. We have been to Italy before, but the reason this was the best trip EVER, is because of staying here at Il Faeto with Fonsi and Enzo. This was our kids' first trip to Europe and we were a little bit worried about how they would do with all the traveling and exploring. But because we had the villa as our "home" we could run ourselves ragged all day long, seeing everything we wanted to see, knowing that we could come home and relax with the best dinner EVER and then retire to our comfortable beds. I can't say enough about the wonderful people who own this property. It's been nearly 2 weeks since we've been there and we still miss Fonsi and Enzo every day. (And Pedro too :) Every single day, someone in our family inevitably talks about Fonsi and Enzo; recalls a story, talks about the food, the view, EVERYTHING. Our kid's had a couple of issues with "traveling tummy" and Fonsi was so accommodating and understanding; from making a plate of rice for one to plain pasta for another, it was just like we were home. And although we had planned on having at least half of our meals out, we ended up eating dinner out only twice during our 9 day stay. One of the nights we were at a restaurant, while we were eating dinner and took a family vote as to whether or not we should keep our reservations for the following night...it was unanimous; everyone voted to cancel our reservations and have dinner at the villa. Our rooms were comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. The villa had everything we needed and more, it is beautifully decorated and so inviting. When we return to Tuscany again, we will without a doubt, be staying here. Molte grazie Fonsi and Enzo! Fino a quando ci incontriamo di nuovo...

P.S. Lucy says please give Matilde a kiss from her! :)

Fantastic villa, outstanding views, delightful owners,exquisite meals and wonderful cooking lessons.

  • 5 of 5

Six of us-three couples from way back when, shared this fantastic villa for a reunion. Two from Scotland, two from Virginia and two from Canada. We were all blown away by the experience, so to satisfy three couples from three different countries tells a story. Fonzi and her husband could not have done more to make us feel welcome, give advice and cook the most delicious breakfast and evening meal when asked. One of us required dairy free/gluten free food and Fonzi baked fresh for her each morning the most delicious cake and pastries that we all enjoyed!!

There are two excellent and well priced local restaurants, Florence is no distance away with all it has to offer but the views from the villa really make you want to stay there. There is a large swimming pool and lots of room to lounge around it and take up the sun.

Highly, highly recommended.

Treated Like Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six spent a few days in October with Enzo and Fonsi at their wonderful hilltop villa outside of Florence. We could have easily spent another few weeks with these accommodating hosts and their sweet dog, Pedro. The grounds and views were simply beautiful, restful, perfectly maintained and offered a true country-casual respite when we returned from our day treks to Florence. Enzo and Fonsi helped us find a perfect parking area and bus stop to leave our car - 20 minutes drive down the hill from the villa - where we felt like true Italians commuting to work without the hassle of driving into the city. We enjoyed delightful, authentic dinners and breakfasts that were so flavorful and different than anything we had eaten so far. We took a cooking class and learned how to make pasta and biscotti from scratch and an amazing traditional Tuscan stew. Fonsi's cucina was out-of-this-world with amazing tools (ice cream maker, pizza oven, restaurant grade stove, cappuccino machine, cooler to name a few). She believes in healthy, organic cooking and grows all her own herbs, veggies and has chickens for eggs. Nothing makes you think more of the country than hearing the rooster in the morning! We loved Enzo's homemade olive oil and Fonsi's pepper marmalade, too. We all could have eaten the ravioli gnudi morning, noon and night!! But our visit was about much more than just food - although a definite highlight - it was a just as much about feeling like one of the family from the moment we got out of our car on arrival. These lovely people genuinely enjoy hosting their guests and opening their hearts and their home unconditionally to those who visit. Without hesitation we will be back for even a longer visit in the future. Spero di vedervi presto cri amici.
