We received a warm welcome from Angeliana on behalf of Aldo who was not present but immediately made contact by text and email shortly after our arrival. The setting is beautiful, serenely peaceful. The photos do not fully do justice to La Farneta, the pool is large and inviting. We felt we had a very private space in which to unwind and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We spent a wonderful week at this magnificent place and enjoyed every moment. Aldo was a most charming and attentive host and the property was extremely clean and comfortable. The area, whilst remote, offered good connections to some very sweet little towns and we even enjoyed a day trip to Florence with very little effort. The pool was very enticing on the sunniest of days and we found the views and countryside surrounding the property to be magnificent. I especially enjoyed the multitude of little song birds which abounded the skies. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to our friends and family and very much hope to return ourselves one day soon.

My overnight stay in Aldo's apartment was fantastic...the place itself is nothing short of magical: 5km up an unmade road, up into the Tuscan hills, you chance upon La Farneta, a little slice of medieval heaven. Aldo's apartment is within a complex of converted buildings that are defined by peace and quiet, terraces dotted about the place, and 360 degree views of the surrounding hills. Some highlights: the piano room, the beautifully landscaped pool area, the gorgeous little chapel, and the private terrace with more of those views on tap. Aldo was great at keeping in touch in advance of the booking, including offering tips on where to buy food and what to do in the area. And we were warmly welcomed by Angiolina and Gualtiero, the on site caretakers. I'd love to have stayed longer, but I have a feeling I'll be back before too long. Go and experience a bit of the Farneta magic - you won't be disappointed.

We had a wonderful stay. The apartment looked just like on the photos and the informations we had. Thought we didnt meet Aldo, he was very reactive through email and Angiolina and Gualtiero who welcomed us gave us all the informations we needed and were always ready to help. Aldo also send us very useful infos to find the place, to find good food, good wine, good restaurant, to know were to buy groceries, small villages worth visiting, etc... All together we had a very good family time, enjoyed the swimming pool and the large terrace.

Our stay at La Farneta was incredible. It is a place, where you can forget everything. Your soul can absolutely relax. Angiolina and Gualtiero are so kind and warmhearted people. Although they speak neither English nor German, the communication always worked. Perfect is the possibility to use the washing machine - very helpful. The appartment is cozy - stylish bathroom. Everything was clean. We visited several places in the morning and in the afternoon we loved to relax at the pool - a perfect combination. Great experience with the garage nearby - they were friendly and helpful (we had a problem with our tire). We can highly recommend Aldo's place. We hope to visit La Farneta again.
