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 Camporgiano
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.
Check-out: 10:00 AM

Alt i denne annonce er virkelig 100% som beskrevet. Et Fantastisk sted.
Vi har lige været en uge i Apartment Salvatore. Det har bare været den bedste ferie. Huset og udeområdet er 100% som beskrevet. Helt vildt dejligt. Familien som har huset bor lige ved siden af, og de er virkelig søde og meget hjælpsomme. Vi fik friske grøntsager og æg fra deres egen have flere gange mens vi var der. Den 4. aften vi var i huset lavede familien en fantastisk middag for os ude ved poolen. En dejlig middag med ene lokale råvarer. Meget Hyggeligt.
Betty som er husets bestyre er også enorm behjælpelig på alle måder. Også dejligt da hun fungerede som tolk mellem familien og os, som ikke er så skarp i det italienske.
Poolen er helt fantastisk dejlig. Smuk og ren. En saltvandspool er også et kæmpe hit i vores optik. :)
Lejligheden er meget flot med en fin indretning . Der er dog ikke masser af ekstra bestik/tallerkener/glas osv. Men det har man heller ikke brug for. Der er lige det man har brug for.
Området lejligheden ligger i er 2-3 km fra byen Camporgiano hvor man kan handle lidt af hvert I et lille supermarked. Der er meget stille og roligt omkring huset, hvilket er en fryd når man slapper af ved poolen.
Alt i alt, en super super feriebolig. Vi planlægger at komme igen. :-)
Thank you Morten for doing a review even if I don't understand it not being a Danish speaker. I'm sure that it will be useful for other potential guests from Denmark.
Best wishes to you and all the family.
This is a PERFECT place for a family!
We had a wonderful holiday in Camporgiano. Our 3 boys loved every hour, and Fabio and his family is one of the most FANTASTIC host-families, we have ever met. They are so nice - and if you like food, I'm sure Fabio will give you cucumbers, tomatoes, basil and so on!
We have been to Toscana several times, and this is absolutely one of the best experiences, we have had. The incredible hospitality, the stunning views, the great and clean pool, the quiet place, the cozy little town, Camporgiano, in the mountains just 3 minutes away in the car (and 20 minutes away walking :-) There is a great restaurant in Camporgiano with perfect pizzas and wine...
GO THERE. You will never regret....
Thank you. We are always happy when our guests have had a good experience with us and have enjoyed this beautiful part of Tuscany. We always do our best to make sure that guests are properly catered for.
Real Tuscan experiance
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.
Thank you very much indeed for your review. It is always good to know that our guests had a great experience! Hoping to see you again one day!
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.
Thank you! We're very happy to know that you enjoyed your holiday in Vitoio. We look forward to welcoming you back one day!
Couldn't be better...
I cannot recommend this place highly enough, great location, lovely well kept apartments... Oh and what a view from the pool! Fabio, Salvatore, and the whole family made us feel so welcome and made our holiday truly unforgettable. We will definitely return.
Thank you very much for your generous words. It was a great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our home and we hope we will meet again soon.
Fantastic holiday in authentic Italy
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.
Dear Nick and family; thank you for your kind words. We are very happy to know that you have enjoyed your times with us. We are honoured to have your company and we hope we will see you again soon. Saluti, Fabio and family Corrieri.
