Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 10 days at Casa Lanciotto. Perfect location for Florence, wine routes, beach, Sienna, San Gimignano, mountains. House was comfortable and the view from the kitchen balcony just stunning. Enjoyed the swimming pool, and also had lovely evenings drinking sundowners and eating on the garden terrace. Great restaurants close by as well as wineries to visit. September weather was perfect. Finally, Alfredo is a great host, always available to help, and full of good ideas and local knowledge to help plan trips. we were sad to leave...

Welcoming, the feeling of being at home, clean, wanting to return, sunny, warm.

  • 5 of 5

A holiday to remember where Alfredo made you feel welcome and for whom nothing was too much trouble. He was on sight every day and if there was a problem, how ever small, it sorted asap. The location was sublime and the views to die for. Looking out from our balcony you could see for miles over the Tuscan country side, there was even a view from the loo!! The swimming pool was spotless and shared the view. The villa is part of a small ancient hill community and literally 50 meters down the narrow road was a small but perfectly formed family run restaurant which was open 4 or 5 nights a week. Two for pizza's and the others more traditional and one with music, it was great. Plenty of shops and eating places nearby and a location I would recommend to anyone, whatever their age.

Most Extraordinary Experience

  • 5 of 5

We haven't stopped gushing about our stay at Borgo Fajani! Our restored farmhouse had all of the old-world charm and the new-world comforts we needed. We rose to the sounds of birds, dined on fresh eggs and cheese from the shop down the road, and soaked in the spectacular views of vineyards, olive trees and rolling hills. The house was not only well-equipped, but cool and comfortable in the hot summer heat.

As others have written, this is the perfect location to explore other sights. We took day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Siena, and Florence. But the days we enjoyed most were probably those close to our home base. We attended the wine festival in Terricciola and tasted at local wineries. Alfredo gave us some wonderful visiting tips (do read his booklet of recommendations) and we thoroughly enjoyed dining at the restaurant within the hamlet.

Don't hesitate to book. It's simply wonderful.

Outstanding property

  • 4 of 5

I cannot say enough about how lovely this property is. We were a party of 4 including 2 teenage girls. There was something for everyone.

Peace and tranquillity for the adults and shopping and excitement in Florence for the girls .Fantastic views from every window and a charming little restaurant just a few steps away. Alfredo was always available and so helpful.Nothing was a problem for him . We hope to return !

The perfect place for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Borgo Fajani is the perfect place for vacation.

We arrived to Borgo Fajani for the second time after a break of 10 years to find again a great place to stay.

Casanova is a very small village that combines all the needed ingredients for vacation in Tuscany:

Quiet, nature, beautiful scenery, vineyards, cheese, olive oil and it is close to all attractions.

Borgo Fajani offers apartments for couples as well as for families.

The Il Signorino is a beautiful apartment with a view that usually exists only on postcards.

The house is very clean and the swimming pool is being cared of and maintained daily.

Alfredo is a great host giving a lot of attention to his guests. A great guide for the region with special tips, always available when help is needed, very reliable and a real friend.

The last thing we did before we left, was to book our summer vacation in the Borgo Fajani for the next summer.

5 stars is the maximum we can give here, if we could, it would be even more.
