“A very special place” I'd heard a lot about Tuscany from friends and there's a certain romance about the area which intrigued me for years. La Balconata was not quite what I expected....it was so much better.

“Absolutely stunning view - could not fault the house either!” We stayed for a week middle of July in the middle of a heat wave! The welcome from the family who owned the house was lovely and there was a small welcome basket provided too. Internet conn

“Fantastic location, wonderful hosts” We were so pleased to have chosen Il Fienile for our first experience of the Tuscan hills - the house is located in a stunning spot and we loved our first glimpse of it across the valley when we drove into Guzzano.

We are so pleased you loved our rental property. The location is stunning, tranquil and yet being on the edge of the village it is also close to bars, shop, supermarkets etc. As a base for sightseeing in Tuscany as you found out it is perfect.

Thank you for your kind review. As this is a new rental property, when we get feedback like this, it makes all our hard work worth while. We are so pleased you loved the apartment and its location and yes the views are truly breathtaking. Whilst we do recommend a car, as you found out it is also easy to get about using public transport links, although they run a limited service from Guzzano. The markets are great and Castelnuovo is one of our favourites, every Thursday and only 30 minutes drive away. We would like to say a big thank you for recommending us to your friends. If you ever decide to visit us again, we would love to have you stay. kind regards and many thanks.

Thank you for your kind review and your kind words. We are so glad you liked your stay with us here on the farm at Il Fienile, you were a lovely couple and a joy to have as our guests on the farm. As you said in your review the property is remote enough for those like yourselves who want peace and tranquillity to relax in during the day and evening. Yet it is close to all the major Tuscan tourist attractions such as Lucca, Cinque Terre, Pisa and Florence all of these are only a short drive away. We hope you enjoy cooking with your Saffron from our farm and please keep in touch both of you. kind regards Joanna and the family
