About Fabio Corrieri

Ciao! I’m Fabio Corrieri and, along with my family, Salvatore, Alba and Battista, we are proud to welcome guests to our home in Vitoio, Tuscany. As well as the holiday apartments, we run a 10 acre small-holding, raising livestock and producing our own food and wine. Whenever we can we snatch an hour or two away from the farm-work to walk through the chestnut woods surrounding our land and often invite our guests to join us. We are passionate about Italian food and we very much enjoy cooking for our guests and sharing an evening meal with them beside the pool, complemented with our own vino rosso, naturally! Salute!

Fabio Corrieri purchased this apartment in 1949

Why Fabio Corrieri chose Lucca Area

The Corrieri family has lived on the property and farmed its land for several generations. We are immersed in spectacular mountain scenery, each season making it even more beautiful than the one before, so we never tire of the view. For us it is the perfect place to live; tranquil and green but within easy reach of town for shopping and entertainment.

What makes this apartment unique

The recent addition of the 'infinity' swimming pool and terrace, which overlooks the beautiful mountain scenery, provides the perfect setting for fun, relaxation and outdoor dining.

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

These apartments are in an amazing setting, high in the Tuscan hills (or are they mountains?). Beautiful pool area, plenty of seating and beds and absolutely fabulous hosts. Fabio and his family welcomed us with wine and cooked us an amazing meal on one day; fresh produce was delivered to us daily. They could not have been more charming and helpful, assisted by their translator Paul. So many wonderful places to visit in the area (although we ended up spending more time by the pool than we planned...); a trip to Lucca is an absolute must. Thank you Corrieri family for a wonderful and memorable holiday.

Real Tuscan experiance

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our first experience of Tuscany, we loved the mountainous area and our host family could not have been better.

The drive up shocked us a bit we expected Tuscany to be more rolling hills.

Our apartment was very adequate and the outside areas including the pool was brilliant.

The best elements is Fabio , his family and their helper who our kids nicknamed grandad Paul were BRILLIANT. We were treated to wine on arrival , super fresh produce from their farm , mid stay wonderful lunch and full tour of thief small holding.

During our stay we travelled to a less mountainious area but there was no comparison in the views and complexities of the villages which balance on cliff faces.

You will need a car, there are great restaurants close and we are delighted to recommend this stay to others.

Fantastic holiday in authentic Italy

  • 5 of 5

As a family over the last twenty years, we have travelled across Italy and France and stayed in many great places. Casa della Fonte is the only place we have ever returned to. We’ve returned for three reasons; the apartment and its facilities, the stunning scenery and, most importantly, the amazing hospitality of the Corrieri family.

We’ve stayed in apartment Salvatore which is comfortable and cosy, with spectacular views from the balcony (a great place to have breakfast) and the terrace and swimming pool area. We loved having barbeques in the evening, overlooking the pool and beautiful Tuscan countryside. We’ve had lovely weather when we’ve stayed, and, being a little higher up, Vitoio doesn’t suffer from the same intense heat that you tend to get further south in Tuscany. We’ve stayed with teenagers and young adults but the apartment is great for all ages.

The Corrieri’s group of extended English speaking friends help with interpretation but, overall, if you want to experience genuine Italy in a beautiful, friendly setting then Case della Fonte will is a fantastic place to have a holiday.

Best Holiday Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we had hoped for and more...the clean and comfortable rooms, the stunning views from the balcony, the perfect pool and outside area...but the best thing about our stay was the incredible kindness, generosity and friendship from Fabio and his family.

Our girls loved riding their horse and meeting all their animals, and we all really looked forward to friendly greetings from the family throughout the day.

We were so grateful for all the amazing fresh fruit and vegetables that were given to us throughout our stay, and we will never forget the lovely meal and drinks that we shared with the whole family on the Saturday evening.

It was a perfect base to explore the beautiful region of Tuscany, including days out in Florence, Lucca and Pisa.

We can't recommend this villa enough - it will be hard to beat on our future holidays!

Just sooo nice.

  • 5 of 5

Well... we were just blown away by the welcome, the complete honest and warm generosity of Fabio and his family!

The place was spotless when we arrived, with a complete selection of local produce to help us into our first day... even local wine and biscuits !

We had planned on sightseeing more... but the view, the weather, and the pool was quite enough to make us halve those plans.

We're booking next year...!
