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 Metropolitan City of Florence

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

Trés accessible avec une moto La Favilletta ou nous avons été acceuillis par Bernardo de manière trés sympathique et en Français, la maison "Il Potico" est parfaitement équipée. Nous avons passé une semaine dans cet environnement exceptionnel, une vraie carte postale de la Toscane dans les vignes et les oliviers. La terrasse avec cette vue magnifique, l'isolement, le calme et la sérénité des lieux permettent un repos de qualité. La piscine trés agréable avec une vue et une propreté irréprochable. La Favilletta est en fait proche de tout, des commerces, gare à 5kms, Florence à 20mn et les villes incontournables de Sienne, Lucca. La Favilletta recommendable en toute confiance.
