This is our last and best job. Two winters rebuilding an ancient barn, now turned in a typical Tuscan country house. Wooden ceilings, terracotta floors and… the famous Borgo Fajani amazing view on the valley.
Three double rooms and three bathrooms on the first floor ; at the ground floor a big kitchen, a huge open-space living room with fireplace and a separate space for extra double sofa-bed with bathroom. Plus a wonderful private big covered terrace with kitchen and bbq facing the valley.

We stayed with friends two weeks in Lallina and just loved it.
The house is spacious, the view gorgious, and the interior useful, no needless decorations that could break (quite handy with kids). The three bedrooms have enough space to feel comfy, you have a wardrobe and cupboard for your belongings and aprivate bathroom each. Our kids loved "their" fourth sleeping place- a couch-bed behind a curtain with en-suite next to the living room. The house is clean.
The windows have inside shutters to keep the heat outside, so there's no need for an a/c (despite temperatures over 35 degrees C). Mosquito nets in front of the windows would be nice- we were eaten alive this year.
The pool is shared with three other houses, but each has its own sunbeds and area. The pool is well looked after and the owner maintains it daily. He is quite discreet but more than happy to help with information or just to chat.
It's a lovely spot, next to the house is a wee restaurant/pizzeria (booking is necessary but they do "take away" for the guest in case they are fullly booked). You also can get dairies at the farm next door. For other errands you definitely need a car.
Cecina beach is an hour drive, parking fee is moderate and you have free beaches in between, where you can bring your own sunshade.
Pisa with its Tower is quite nice for kids and also an hour drive.
Thank you for this wonderful holiday! I felt like queen of the castle!
Perfect in every way!
Just returned from a wonderful stay here. The house was very spacious, clean and had everything required for a family. We enjoyed a gorgeous meal cooked for us by a lovely lady from the village, wine tasting at the vineyard opposite (be warned- large samples!), visiting the numerous villages around and further afield, such as, Sienna and Pisa. The hamlet and house was very tranquil and Alfredo could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Gorgeous views to admire early morning and evening in peace. Pool refreshing (considering the 40 plus degrees) and maintained daily. Pleasant meal in the small restaurant next to the house. Sadly the little organic farm/shop a few steps away no longer sells bread but great for cheese, yogurt, balsamic vinegar, oil, grape juice and eggs. Lovely to have your own outside eating area. Thank you Alfredo!
Stop looking: This is it!
Top notch stay at Lallina with all the family. We loved it and can't wait to go back!
A lovely break in the countryside of Tuscany
Alfredo was an excellent host and we were very happy with our accommodation.
The beautiful weather and wonderful sunrises each morning across the countryside were a joy.
We enjoyed a meal cooked by a local lady (Sandra) who came into the villa to cook for us. This was excellent value; and she left the food all ready for us and thoroughly cleaned up before she left too!! I would highly recommend this; a perfect end to a busy day sightseeing; all you need to do is serve the food, open the wine and enjoy :)
Recommend a trip to Florence and also Lucca.
Excellent property in great location
Previously we've always booked somewhere on its own with a private pool and decided on Borgo Fajani because we felt our teenagers might appreciate more people around, so we weren't quite sure how we would feel about this choice. We never regretted a moment. The combination of a quality single villa in a group sharing a pool and with a small restaurant in a small hamlet proved perfect. The view is superb. In the foreground is the gentle activity of a working mixed farm (vineyards, orchard etc), a couple of miles to the East the hilltop town of Peccioli and to the distant South the hills around Volterra. Alfredo is a kind and thoughtful host and a good communicator in the period leading up the hire. Of all the villas we've hired in Tuscany and Umbria over the years, this is the one we would be most likely to go back to.
Alfredo was very helpful and accommodating. Views from the house were amazing and just how we had envisioned Tuscany. The house was perfect and plenty big for eight of us. My kids loved the farm down the hill. Highly recommended!
Only a few steps from your house there is “La Locanda degli Artisti”, a lovely family pizzeria-restaurant, owned by Manuela and Carlo, who cook only with local fresh organic produce. Right in Casanova hamlet -two minutes walking from Borgo Fajani farm houses- it is possible to get every day fresh organic milk, cheeses, eggs, olive oil, honey, fruit juice, wine and fresh home made bread. Borgo Fajani lays on the “Strada del Vino”, a route linking the main wine producing farms and caves of “Alta Valdera”, an area known for its excellent wines set on the Tuscan 'Colline Pisane'. At your arrival you'll find a updated note with all the 'tips' to enjoy the surroundings: restaurants, wineries, caves, shops, country fairs, events and so on. Other Activities: Golf: 40 minutes far
