Like something out of a Disney story... inside amd out, Casale Fontibucci is beautiful, charming, serene, comfortable. Our favorite air BnB so far. Stefania and Aurora are wonderful ladies, and every need is attended to. We can't wait to get back to Case di San Romolo and spend more time at this amazing place.

Response from Stefania E Aurora:
Robert, thank you for your appreciations. We really would love to host you again at Casale Fontibucci may be during summer? Aperitif at sunset and a swim in the pool at the sound of cicadas is really worthwhile. A presto!

The home is perfect, the views and sunsets were absolutely amazing! The host is very informative and timely. She went above and beyond by booking reservations at a nearby winery. One day upon arriving back at our place we had a wonderful basket with homegrown produce by our door. We were not able to use the pool while we were there as it was a bit cooler but the area was very nice. Everything about this place is exactly what we wanted.

We stayed at Casale Fontibucci for 7 nights. We wished it could have been more. The apartment is beautiful and the views from every direction never fail to impress. Stefania was so helpful with directions, local advice and edible gifts from her garden. After a hot day there was nothing more refreshing than a dip in the pool.This was a truly delightful stay and we will look forward to returning sometime in the future. Thank you Stefania.

My family and I spent here three nights. It was so quiet. We were very well welcomed by Stephania. The appartement was very beautiful and the view is wonderful mainly during the sunset.

This place has an amazing view and a lovely atmosphere. Watching the sunset over Florence with a glass of Chianti produced by the hostess' family is a special treat! The place is quiet and perfect for lazy relaxation. We went with our baby daughter who loved the pool. Stefania was a great host, she provided a baby cot and a kids seat and even a bottle of milk on the day of our arrival for our daughter. The place was clean and welcoming. There is a bus route which could probably take you very close, but I would recommend getting a rental car. There are many nice drives around this area too. Very recommendable!

It was our favorite stay during our first trip to Italy. Stefania was very communicative and helpful since the beginning. When we arrived we were so amazed by the surrounding view, we loved it so much! Beautiful hill view!! During check in Stefania took us for a tour and explain everything about the whole Villa. Everything was just more beautiful than we imagined. On the next day we wanted to explore Florence but decided to stay since the villa is so nice... We ended up buying food and did BBQ instead which was so lovely, and it was my birthday so we really had a perfect time!! Stefania was only one (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) away to help so we had no problem, everything was perfect. We would definitely come back again someday, for at least a week!! ;-) grazie mille Stefania! (p.s. sleeping in the tower bedroom made me feel like a princess, so happy! And thank you for my birthday gift!!)

Stefania E Aurora User ProfileStefania E Aurora is a superhost.

I’m living with my mother Aurora at Casale Fontibucci from the 70’s; the first 10 years have gone by living abroad, Africa & South America, long periods, and coming back, from time to time, enjoying the peace and calm of the Casale with the family.

Getting to know new and different cultures from mine was an incredible experience. This truly ment to enrich and open my family & my self to the world: I, in fact, from the very first steps, I followed the family and I learned, as her first language, .... Spanish!
In the early 80's, we chose to live permanentely at the Casale; my mother began teaching Italian and history at Hotel & Catering School in Florence.
This was also a great experience that has enforced herself to rediscover our Tuscan tradition of food and all those activities connected to the Casale such as oil, wine, traditional plants quince, iris and lavender.
The passion for nature has also "infected" myself, who has started cultivating lavender and, in particular, carrying on a Tuscan traditional handcraft such as the “Barilotto” (little barrel) to scent our wardrobes.

I like cooking typical Tuscan cuisine but, alternatively, love the Brazil and Argentina recipes too. My mother loves reading narrative books and especially anthropology she was graduated; we both lose ourselves in city life - Florence is to reach by car in 20 minutes - to keep always updated on exhibitions, conferences, concerts and other activities.
We'll be happy to meet your curiosity about history, art and of Florence and Tuscany.
I will take care from the first contact, to information requests, reservation; I'm always available on email and phone. We can speak Italian, English, French and Spanish.
