Lovely Tuscan experience

  • 5 of 5
The house and grounds are exactly as described on the website - a beautiful ancient home restored with all the modern conveniences. The setting is spectacular, with amazing views of Tuscan fields and hillsides. The location is a great starting point for exploring Tuscany by car or train (the Sieci train station with frequent 2,5 euro service to Florence is a short drive away). We were a group of 8 friends and enjoyed outings to various local towns and markets as well as trips for some of us to Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Pisa, Bologna, Padova and Venice - all within easy reach. We had some delightful home-cooked meals - all necessary cooking supplies and utensils were on hand - and also enjoyed Il Nappino in nearby Santa Brigida. Marco was very helpful, both in advance of the trip and while we were there, meeting us at the airport and responding to questions when we arrived. We would love to return, perhaps when the weather is warmer to enjoy the pleasant gardens.

Country home full of a long history dating back hundreds of years. Home of stone, 5 bedrooms, 2 stories, kitchen, and big fireplace which wasn't functional. Marco was a great host. One must have a car as many villages & train in area. Fantastic views from upstairs windows! Antiques everywhere - love patios and huge yard. Very quiet - the villages & locals charming. Thank you Marco!

We've stayed in Zoli CountryHouse for 4 nights in Sept 2014 together with our kids and friends .
We all enjoyed the beautiful Tuscan view, but more than that we enjoyed the spacious and tranquil house and its 11th century history!!!
Our host was very hospitable, but at the same time he gave us freedom to enjoy the property among us.
Thank you for being a trustful and friendly host!

Zoli House; a refuge from the city!

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 9 that spent a wonderful couple of weeks at the Zoli house. A car is necessary for local travel and to access the train station at Sieca for transportation to Florence. There is plenty of free parking in Sieca and the trains come somewhat regularly! Marco provided us with a very good reference for a cooking experience with Marzia. We enjoyed walking to the local villages and exploring the countryside. This is truly a place to relax and enjoy Italy.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing - the views, the huge garden/outdoor living area and the charm & character of an ancient home. The location was great for day trips to Florence and Venice - staying out of the cities allowed for perfectly relaxing evenings with the family, drinking wine in the garden, playing ping pong, or cooking a big meal in the kitchen.

There were 8 adults and the house was more than big enough to accommodate us all more than comfortably.

Maria and Marco were very helpful via email before the trip in helping us plan things to do in the area, and upon arrival, there were many guidebooks they had put together to help us while there.

I hope to get back to Tuscany one day, and if I do make it back, I would love to stay here again.

- The Fornello village is only 18 km far from Florence and at few minutes car from Fiesole, Borgo San Lorenzo, Pontassieve. Bus service SITA from Florence (starting near to the Railway Station) is available too; the bus stop is located just in front of the house. The nearest airport is Florence (FLR) Airport; also Pisa or Bologna airports are reachable by train from Florence in less than a hour.

Furniture are traditional but all modern comforts are available (satellite TV, Wi-Fi internet connection, dishwasher, washing machine, telephone, and so on).
