A special piece of heaven close to Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six adults and 2 babies who spent a week at Il Faeto and all of us enjoyed a wonderful stay at the villa. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable and clean with all the amenities one could need. The pool was closed for the season when we arrived, but the gardens are beautiful and the views from the villa were outstanding. Enzo and Fonsi are so hospitable and are warm, wonderful hosts and Fonsi's cooking was absolutely heavenly! We had three dinners at the villa and unanimously agreed that it would be hard to find better food anywhere else! Pedro, their boxer was very friendly and loves the attention! We chose to take the local train into Florence on the days we went sightseeing there and drove into the Chianti region for the day as well as Sansepolcro on another day, all within an hour and a half from the villa. Thank you Fonsi and Enzo for a wonderful and unforgettable week!

Dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt like guests, not customers. The villa was gorgeous. But you've seen the pictures. You know it's gorgeous.

Fonsi's cooking? Oh. My. God. After one meal we, our group of 8 agreed there could be no better food in all of Tuscany. But we felt we should give a few other places a try anyway😉?. And we wanted to try our hand at Italian cooking as well. (In fact, one day we cooked and spontaneously asked Fonsi and Enzo and their family to join us. Turned into a laugh filled potluck with Fonsi and Enzo correcting our attempts at Italian that drew us dangerously close to bawdy mistakes!)

Now let's talk about Pedro the dog. A sweeter dog is not to be found!

The view? Yeah. The pictures don't do it justice. After a day of exploring nearby towns we would return and sit on the hillside and chat while gazing at the loveliness.

Can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. Thank you, fonsi and Enzo!!

Beautiful views of South Florence, Beautiful grounds, with Michelin Star food

  • 5 of 5

Words can not express how perfect our time at Country House Il Faeto was! We all thoroughly enjoyed the pool, Fonzy and Enzo's company, and their lovely dog Pedro. After our many day trips, we spent the late afternoon enjoying the beautiful property and having spectacular meals that Fonzy prepared for us with many ingredients fresh from her gardens. Both Fonzy and Enzo were fantastic hosts and treated us (with our three children) like family! We can't wait to go again!!!!

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.
