About Bernardo Dionisio

My name is Bernardo and i managed my holiday house since 2008. I try to do my best ro respect the essence of Tuscany style n the decoration of apartments and outside. I give tips for eating and do things in the surrounding area during the stay.

I like to know people from all over.

Bernardo Dionisio purchased this farmhouse in 1975

Why Bernardo Dionisio chose Rignano sull' Arno

This property was buyed by my grandfather in 1975 when i was only for. It is a haouse of the seventeenth century. First a place for parayes, then a farmhouse with animals, barn, ecc ecc.

It took a long time to restore the first floor (apartment La Favilla), that was the one in wich me and my family lived during the seventies and eighties.

In 1996 we restored the barn that now is the apartment il fienile (2+2) that is 10 meters far from the main building.

In 2006 we restored for the secnd time Apartment Il Portico that is at the ground floor, under apartment La Favilla.

So i have many memories of this house when i was a kid, memories of the many party we make in this house 20 years ago.

Now things have changed as this house has more and more became my job. But is very beutiful to give other people the opportunity to stay in a so beloved place

What makes this farmhouse unique

The benefits of this holiday house are first of all the position. High, on a top of the hill the house gives the opportunity to enjoy unique views from everywhere and especially from private terraces.

There are many services, most of them are free: wifi, parking, pool, laundry (shared), parking, barbecue, bikes.

Our area is not very exploited and is still very authentic with many attractions.

The garden is big with and the property give the chance to have a good privacy, even in the high season

Guestbook comments from the manager

After a few weeks of city-based travel we were looking for a rural holiday house and this place was perfect. La Favilletta is divided into three or four self-contained dwellings, each with its own outdoor area where you can set out your lunch or dinner and enjoy the views over the lovely valley. There were only two of us (mother and daughter), so the two-bedroom 'Il Portico' suited us perfectly. Both bedrooms were generous in size and had a lot of space to empty our packs and hang up our wrinkled clothes for the week; there is also a shared washing machine and drying racks we made good use of. We were in the change-over between seasons and on a few evenings we opted to turn on the central heating which made the whole house very cosy. (There is an extra charge if you choose to use the heating but it's metered so you can keep track of it.) Bernardo Dionisio, whose family owns La Favilletta, was an efficient and friendly young manager and our experience of renting Il Portico went well from start to finish. We also thought it was very economical compared to other places we stayed in in Italy.

What we really loved was the huge marble-topped kitchen/dining area where we spread out and cooked up a storm. The kitchen was very well-appointed with a lot of equipment you wouldn't usually expect in a holiday rental, and previous guests had left a range of seasonings and other things that made it a bit cheaper for us to get going (Australians - think coast house).

La Favilletta is in a hilltop location above the town of Pontasieve on the junction of the Sieve and Arno Rivers, and it is a good base to get into Florence for sightseeing. From Pontasieve station it is a short train trip to the central station of Florence, 20 km away, and if you start early enough in the morning you can park your car in free municipal parking near the train station. (NB If you drive your car into Florence you may face a fine, as other Tripadviser reviewers have recently reported in reviews of car hire in Italy - check it out if you want to drive in.) La Favilletta includes the use of bicycles and bike locks, so don't neglect the option of walks and rides in the surrounding countryside.

Stunning views, very well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in the dark having followed Bernardo's directions from Pisa, and awoke to stunning views and the perfect location. Maria cooked us a feast on the first night with wine supplied by the farmer who worked the vineyards and Olive groves around the house. The house was well equipped for our every needs including mosquito nets, fresh smelling towels and everything you should ever need in the kitchen.

Highly recommended and a trip to Florence, Siena, San Gimingnano, Volterra, Pisa and so much more easy and accessible by car andtrain. The owner couldn't be nicer if he tried and there is so much room on the property.
A wonderful time and just hoping we will be able to get back again!
