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!

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! :)
