Casa Fantone Fantastic
We spent a week with our children and 4 grandchildren aged 7 to 9. Everything at Casa Fantone was as promised and more. Gianfranco is the perfect host. He shared his wine, his olive oil, and the herbs and vegetables in his garden. He was always available to give us any help we needed. The kids shared a large room with 4 beds, and the 3 adult couples had 3 nice rooms of their own. The house had amenities galore. The pool is large and has a breathtaking view. We made pizza in the pizza oven ( Gianfranco helped us learn how to use it) on the terrace overlooking the mountains and ate it right there on the terrace -- which seated us all. We grilled dinner on the big patio with a table under an awning that also seated us all. When the kids were not in the pool they were on the swings, the hammocks, the soccer field. They played ping pong and foosball. We made day trips to Sienna, Florence, Poppi, Arezzo. Gianfranco helped us find a place where locals take their children to enjoy nature and swimming holes. There is even a gnome park to see in the vicinity. This house is absolutely perfect for families with children as well as a group of adults who want a special Tuscan experience.
Wunderschönes Haus mit schönem Blick von der großzügigen Terrasse und auch aus dem Pool herraus.
Netter Vermieter, der täglich sich früh für zwei Stunden um seinen Gemüsegarten kümmert.
Haus und Hof liegen ca 8 km von Poppi entfernt. Wir hatten uns zusätzlich zu unserem Camper einen kleinen Fiat gemietet.
Bei dieser Entfernung ist ein Einkauf mit dem Fahrrad nicht möglich.
Die Größe des Hauses und des umliegenden Areals sind fantastisch.
Amazing Family Vacation Spot
We were a family of 10 adults and a 4 year old. The property and owner were as advertised. Gianfranco was very helpful and yet unobtrusive. He met us at the property, provided breakfast at his home on our first morning and the night we arrived called ahead to a local family owned restaurant to ensure accommodation for our whole family. He also provided fresh herbs and greens from the organic garden on site and a welcome basket with wine and his homemade olive oil. It was a perfect vacation spot. We took day excursions to Venice, Lucca, Siena, Rome, Florence and Pisa. Venice is a 3 1/2 hour drive each way, but most of the rest are within 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We spent every other day on an excursion and the rest of the time at Casa Fantone. It was a perfect balance and we did not want to come home. We had 11 people together for 16 days and never had any issues. Lots of space for everyone and blessed to have the pool, soccer field, playground, ping pong, and foosball. You cannot go wrong with Casa Fantone and Gianfranco, both are amazing!
Ein echtes Juwel in grandioser Landschaft
Ein wunderbares Ferienhaus für eine auch etwas größere Gruppe mit einer atemberaubend schönen Aussicht auf die etwas wildere und touristenärmere Osttoskana.
Gianfranco nimmt man es ab, dass es ihm nicht nur ums Geld verdienen geht sondern zufrieden ist, wenn sich seine Gäste wohlfühlen.
Das Haus selbst ist in einem sehr guten Zustand und Gianfranco ist ein sehr aufmerksamer und dabei dennoch ein diskreter Vermieter.
Keine Frage: Werden wir uns nochmals mit 8 oder 10 Menschen nach einem Ferienhaus umsehen, so ist das Casa Fantone in Zukunft die erste Wahl für uns.
We stayed with our extended family in the casa fantone for a week over eastern this year. Coming from a busy city, for us it was a dream come true. The spacious house is placed in the Tuscany hills overlooking a large valley. The view is just stunning and we have spent hours simply enjoying the view from the terrace with a glass of local wine, while the kids had lots of fun roaming around and exploring the huge property of casa fantone. The house owner does not live on the property, so we had the place totally for ourselves during our stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and even a large wood fired pizza oven is just waiting to be used. Good restaurants are within 10 minutes driving distance. Arezzo, Florence and Siena can be covered in day trips. Just writing these lines makes me miss that place so much...can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much Gianfranco.
Truly a PARADISE vacation spot for our family
Casa Fontone is definitely a 5 star vacation place! The house and surrounding property overlooking the Casentino Valley were THE perfect place for our family of 9 while visiting Tuscany. My husband and I planned a trip for our two adult daughters and their families which included our sons-in law and three grandchildren ages 1, and 2, and 3. The property provided something special for all ages. The views were absolutely breathtaking!
The design of the house was spacious and perfect for families who maintain different schedules. Those that preferred to sleep in could be away from the bustle of the main living area and early risers had access to the kitchen and main living area without disturbing the rest of the family. The lower apartment gave us access to the third bathroom making it easy for all of us to get ready for the day without having to wait on one another. All the bathrooms as was the whole house were updated and clean and the bedding was very comfortable.
The fully equipped kitchen made meal preparations easy. Too, it was nice to have options for dining with nicely furnished balconies and patios both in the rear and the front of the house. Regardless of the time of day, we were able to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful surroundings. We were amazed at the vibrant beautiful blooming plants and landscaping. Honestly, we actually checked to make sure that they were real and they were!
Our grandchildren loved the spacious yard, playground and fenced football area. The hammocks and apple orchard were also favorites. We experienced the beginning of the Casa Fontone's olive harvest which gave us an appreciation for their caring approach for the trees, olives and environment.
Gianfranco, our landlord, could not have been more friendly, helpful and easy to work with from our reserving the property to departure. Upon our arrival, he presented a welcome basket of wine and a jar of his canned organically grown tomatoes. Delightful! He shared his potatoes and offered that we enjoy the fruit or vegetables all of which were 100% organically grown. On the October nights when the temperatures dipped, he provided firewood for the fireplace which kept us toasty warm throughout the night.
Yes, it is easy to see why Gianfranco calls Casa Fontone his little paradise. The house, amenities, gardens, and view are amazing and we were happy to call his paradise our "home away from home". Thank you, Gianfranco, for your hospitality!
