Family holiday self catering accomodation with garden, scenic pool. Free WiFi
Zigolo is a self catering apartment with air conditioned, on the ground floor.
The entrance is directly into the large living room with fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, electric oven, top stove with 4 fires, kettle, percolator) and 2 sofas. A passage leads to a double bedroom, a twin bedroom (or a second double bedroom) and a bathroom with shower.
It is ideal for a family with children or for 2 couples holidaying together. SHORT STAYS WELCOME!
Zigolo's entrance door is the only one on that side of the building. This means that a nice portion of the garden is just for you.
Summer is a great time to relax and enjoy the company of a good book! You can relax and enjoy reading while sipping a glass of red Chianti wine sitting in the garden, under the cork tree. Not to mention alfresco dining! There is a large communal 'barbecue house' in the park for your home-cooked delicious Fiorentina steaks. We have some hammocks. Grab a cold drink, unwind and let the stress melt away.

About Ms. Tiziana Fierli
I was born in Fucecchio and I have been living here all of my life. Even if I have been working in the fashion industry for more than 20 years now, I am more and more interested in the holiday rental world. I also attended a course to become a professional manager in hospitality and tourism management; it was fun to come back to school. Every day I post something new on our Facebook page, just type La Scuola di Furio into the Facebook Search field. This search field can be found at the top of the website, or at the top of the Facebook app.
Ms. Tiziana Fierli purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Ms. Tiziana Fierli chose Metropolitan City of Florence
My father (Furio, hence "La Scuola di Furio") bought this property in the late '90. It was in such a state! No heating, no electricity, no running water! He started to restore it (with Italian burocracy, this process can take a lot of time and even more patience!), then came with this idea: 'Why don't we rent to tourists?'. At that time (pre-internet era for me) I thought it was a terrible idea. 'Tourists in Fucecchio? This is not going to happen!'. How wrong I was!
What makes this Apartment unique
It is easy to fall in love with this location! Splendid views over a tranquil valley, fantastic pool. Real possibility of reaching from nearby Empoli train station: Florence in 24 minutes, Pisa in 28 minutes and Siena in 45 minutes (stress free solution), or Lucca in under 30 minutes by car. Check on our own website how to go to Florence on a tramway!

En snert af paradis i Toscana!
Vi besøgte La Scuola di Furio i slutningen af august 2017. Vi er en lille familie med en baby på 8 måneder, og tidspunktet og temperaturen var her perfekt. Varmt om dagen (dog med gode muligheder for skygge rundt omkring på grunden og ved lejligheden) og køligere om aftenen og natten.
Vi boede I en lejlighed i stueplan, og var således rigtig fin, når man rejser med mindre børn.
Beskrivelsen af selve stedet, faciliteter og lejligheden var meget retvisende. Ligeledes er det et meget velholdt og rent sted, og poolområdet er rigtig dejligt. Stedet er meget stille, så hvis man er til ro og afslapning er det perfekt. Ligeledes ligger det strategisk godt ift. diverse attraktioner/byer, men det benyttede vi os ikke af, da vi rejste med et lille barn.
Både før, under og efter opholdet var ejerne meget servicemindede og imødekommende, og stemnngen på stedet er rigtig god og positiv.
Da vi rejste med et lille barn var vi heller ikke ude at spise. I stedet hentede vi mad fra en nærliggende restaurant, som vi spiste i haven med en god chianti til - perfekt. Der ligger også en bager et par km. væk, hvor man kan købe brød, kage osv. Der ligger et stort supermarked 10 min. i bil derfra, der har alt. Så det er perfekt, hvis man selv skal lave mad.
Vi kan kun give de bedste anbefalinger til dette sted, hvis man søger ro og afslapning på et veldrevet sted I smukke toscanske omgivelser.
Die Lage der Ferienanlage La Scuola di Furio ist ideal, um die Toskana zu erkunden!
Pisa, Florenz und Lucca sind nicht weit entfernt und sehr gut erreichbar. Tiziana, die Besitzerin, ist überaus freundlich. Sie spricht deutsch und hat uns schon mit einem dicken Ordner über mögliche Ausflugsziele und Aktivitäten begrüßt und war auch sonst jederzeit hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung Pispolo ist sehr gut eingerichtet und gemütlich. Im kleinen Garten direkt vor der Tür kann man ungestört frühstücken oder einfach nur sitzen und lesen. Der Pool im großen Garten ist fantastisch. Selbst bei großer Hitze lässt es sich hier gut aushalten, denn es weht meist eine angenehme kleine Brise. Der nahe gelegene Ort Fucechio hat eine schöne Altstadt, nette Lokale und gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für den täglichen Bedarf. Wir können einen Ferienaufenthalt in La Scuola di Furio bestens empfehlen.
This was our first time in a Villa in Italy. Tiziana made it a great experience. She was in constant communications with us from the beginning, advises us of the villas and surrounding areas to help with our plans. The villa was beautiful. It had everything we needed. Upon arrival Tiziana greeted us with wine, maps and friendly advice. It was a memorable experience and hope to return. We will definitely recommend her villas to our friends & families.
Dear Sandy and Alan,
many thanks for your lovely review. It has been a pleasure to have you at La Scuola di Furio!
I hope you can come back one day!
A big hug from still very sunny Tuscany!
Better than I ever expected!
The villa was absolutely wonderful, and Tiziana was fabulous! The villa was perfect for our stay. It had everything we needed and more than expected. The location was made even better by the local people and how welcome they made us feel. Tiziana recommended great places to visit in the area and she was a big help. We have only been home a few days but we know that our honeymoon was made even better because of our stay at this villa! Thank you to the wonderful town of Fucecchio and to Tiziana!

Dear Betty and Paul,
many thanks for writing these lovely words.
We feel very honoured that you choose to stay at La Scuola di Furio on a such special occasion!
Thank you again,
Geweldig verblijf! Aanrader!
Wij hadden een geweldig verblijf tijdens onze huwelijksreis in LA SCUOLA Holiday Home. Tiziana was erg vriendelijk en verwelkomde ons met een taart met onze initialen voor ons huwelijk en fles rode wijn. De kamers zijn erg ruim en de omgeving is erg mooi. Het ligt erg centraal. Helaas was het zwembad defect toen wij er waren, maar we kregen als goedmaker 100 euro terug voor het verblijf en een gratis maaltijd aangeboden in het plaatstelijke restaurant. Ik zou er zo weer naar toe gaan! Bedankt voor het geweldige verblijf!
Peaceful setting, convenient location, wonderful atmosphere.
Our stay in La Scuola was marvelous, quiet, picturesque, serene, and totallying peaceful. The grounds are beautiful, the apartment well furnished and spotless, and the pool a welcome sight after a day of touring and walking. The layout encourages renters to socialize with other tenants in the early evening, with tables and benches out on the lawn. La Scuola is well situated for day trips to Florence, Lucca, Sienna, Pisa, and many other small tuscan towns. Our second floor apartment allowed us to open all the windows at night and be woken by the morning breezes and birds. Would recommend to anyone looking to spend a few days in one place. It felt like home.
Dear Mrs. S.
thank you so much for your very nice feedback.
It has been a pleasure corresponding with you, then meeting you and your daughter on your very special trip!
The apartment you stayed at is just above Zigolo.
I love that during your 4 nights only stay you could appreciate all the major points that justify choosing a holiday here which makes a difference.
Needless to say, we would welcome you and your family at La Scuola di Furio back again anytime.
Tiziana and Walter
