The place where our home is a really pearl in Tuscany.
We love Tuskany and therefore we spent our vacations here many times. But when we found our borgo, we realized that this is the best from what we have seen before.
Our appartment is in a real ancient village accurate with love rebuilt in details from ruins. Appartment made in Tuscan style which we love. And all this combined with a comfortable modern equipment. For example there is excellent morden-equipped pool in borgo but it designed as a pease of large lake.
It very attractive for us that our Casa is placed among wildlife area. We like that the air is filled with the scent of flowers herbs. And we very like absolute silence at night which can be broken only by sounds of nature.
When we stay we travel a lot around by car because there are many interesting places are not far from us.
We really get each time full relax hear combined with new impressions.
Second time we have visited Il Fico, in Tuscany. Annemie and i have stayed here for 2 weeks, and we love it even more then last year. Il Fico is privately owned, and is for 2 to 4 persons. The apartment next door (also 2 to 4 persons) is privately owned by the brother of Galina, so if you visit with friends like we did, and you need some more space, you can ask Galina to check availability of the other apartment for you.
This place is wonderfull, we love the environment, the spectacular views up to Volterra which is more than 20 kilometers away. The swimming pool is unique / photo's say more than words!
This year we have discovered some extra restaurants, we have visited San Gimignano (20min), Firenze (1hour), Lucca (1h15min), and tasted some great Chianti-wines. Love Tuscany, and definitely will be back at Il Fico.

Very enjoyable experience
Casa Il Fica was lovely. It was very clean and cozy, and it was well supplied with all the items we needed. The grounds were immaculate, and the pool was amazing. We hated to leave. The owner provided us with excellent directions and information about the surrounding points of interest.
Excellent relaxing week, in a beautiful cottage. Excellent facilities and location. Will be back
We were in Casa Il Fico for 1 week, really an exceptional place in the heart of Tuscany. Casa Il Fico was very-very neat, great cooking stove, all luxury one man can desire (incl. airconditioning), a magnificent swimming pool, and astounding views. Great places to visit in the close neighbourhood, lovely restaurants closeby, a place to return to... Thanks Galina!
We spent 6 nights in April in this impeccable apartment which appears to have been just recently renovated as new ! Extremely clean, with all amenities and exactly as described on the website. The location is perfect to visit the region, very peaceful, quiet and relaxing when you come back from a day of visit. Beautiful view on the Tuscan countryside, with the possibility of hacking nearby. Unfortunately the temperature was just a bit too cold for us to use the pool but when it is warmer it must be such a pleasure to swim in the beautiful pool in this exceptional setting. The reception was extremely warm and friendly (thank you for the bottle of wine) and Roberto showed us around and was always available to answer our questions or solve quickly the minor internet access problem we had. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany.
