We spent two glorious weeks at La Favilletta enjoying the amazing views, hot sunshine and the wonderful cities of Florence and Siena. Florence is a short train journey away and we visited the stunning city twice, especially enjoying thel Uffitzi art gallery. It is also very interesting to visit some of the beautiful villages in the Chianti countryside, where you can taste the wine or visit one of the many little restaurants. Bernardo was often to be found at La Faviletta tending the garden and pool, he was very friendly and helpful. Although there are three properties at La Faviletta which share the garden and pool, we found that it was a very sociable time meeting new people from different countries and sharing a drink at the pool side together in the evening. La Faviletta is approached by quite a long, rough and rocky road as mentioned in other reviews but if you drive slowly this is fine. There are also three well maintained bikes at the house which were great fun to use to explore the surrounding countryside. Thank you Bernardo for a great holiday.

Bernardo as a host, must recommend! Friendly, helpful and relaxed. Everything as promised. Rooms large and clean. Stunning views from all windows. Fantastic house and garden. Extra plus goes to pool area, even though the water is chilly in mid may.

We spend the past two weeks at La Favilletta and it was as nice as we had hoped and dreamed of. Secluded, in total silence, no traffic, awesome views, but still not too far away from Florence, Pontassieve, Rignano for shopping and culture. The apartment had basically everything that we needed and was, especially in regards to kitchen tools, much better equipped than any other rental apartment we visited. (Only a couple of big drinking glasses would be nice, the ones that are available, where small and it was hot, so you need to drink a lot. :-)) There were also tons of books in different languages, games and movies! Bernardo, the keeper of the grounds was very kind, helpful and involved. Thank you for that! Of course, as already mentioned in other reviews, for the last two kilometers to La Favilletta the road was very rough and rocky, but our Golf, fully loaded with 4 persons and luggage for two weeks could handle it. No problem, just go slow. I can definitely recommend staying there! The only thing that you need to be aware of are the neighbors from the other two apartments, some may be nicer, some may be not. :-)

We booked this property through homeaway.co.uk and unfortunately hadn't read the reviews here before we booked. Whilst the location is stunning, and the farmhouse a lovely example of type found across hillsides in Tuscany, it had some major drawbacks for us. We didn't realise that it was a shared property and the description on the homeaway site didn't make this explicit. We were lucky that our downstairs neighbours were fairly quiet but when they were more animated in the evenings we could hear them. With 3 properties on the site, if it had been warm enough to use the gardens and pool (it isn't available until May, which we didn't know in advance) we'd have needed to make friends with our neighbours. Our holiday was in early April when we had hoped to have good weather. Unfortunately the first 4 days of our week brought strong winds and rain. We had to pay extra for heating and despite not being in the apartment for much of the day still got through 80 Euros of gas. The heating really wasn't up to the job though and we couldn't get the apartment warm, other than the small kitchen which is where we spent most evenings, which was a shame given the huge living room. We also found that rain came through the roof and window shutters. Including through the electric extractor fan over the cooker. We reported this to the owner who was aware of the problem. What neither the homeaway nor TripAdvisor descriptions make clear though is that the house can only be reached by driving along a 1 mile track. We had to drive extremely carefully to avoid damaging our hire car. It also meant that whilst the village of Torri with its shop/cafe was in theory close enough to walk, in reality I don't think anyone would. So, a stunning location with breathtaking views, but I wouldn't go out of season, make sure you hire a car that can cope with rough terrain and make friends with the neighbours!

Getting to La Favilletta was a topographical experience, it is miles away from town. we drove over unpaved country roads through olive groves and vineyards. Luckily we were given precise instructions by the proprietor Bernado . We were able to easily navigate our way to this very charming solitary house situated on rolling Tuscan hills. The scenery around us was beautifully stunning. We could see mists enveloping the lower hill slopes, the olive groves seemed like a tapestry designed onto the rolling hills. We stayed at the larger apartment which had 3 bedrooms, a large living & dining room. The furniture was old and quaint and reflected the character and age of the house well. The house had a nice fire place, which was very helpful considering that we visited in December. Bernado showed us where the wood shed was, soon we had a roaring fire to combat the chilly weather. La Favilletta is a restored old stone building, I think it is more than 200 years old. It does not have very good insulation properties. Unfortunately during our stay our heater did not function very well. We had to rely on our sweaters to keep warm. We would have enjoyed our stay more if we visited in Summer. Nonetheless Bernado was a good and concerned host, he dropped on us often to ensure we were OK, and to handle our issues with the heating. La Favilletta is right for city dwellers who want to escape the hustle of city life. Here you can discover the joys of quiet , self reflection & exploring the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
