“Clean , convenient, good location, beautiful environment and wonderful hostess.”
Emma Fabrini, who owns/manages the apartments was a warm and extremely helpful hostess. She was always available by phone and dropped by (at appropriate times) to check on our welfare. The facility was squeaky clean and equipped with the necessities for an independent stay (cooking-in and laundry). We were a bit surprised at the additional cost of gas (cooking and heating) but we have to acknowledge that as North Americans we are really spoiled with our cheap energy at home. The Italians don't have it so good. Emma was up front regarding this and the extra use (heating) was our choice. Emma went to great lengths to solve several of our (self induced) problems (parking ticket and unpaid road toll). She added hugely to the enjoyment of our trip and really made us feel at home. We would absolutely stay at Casa Fabrini again.
“What a wondeful holiday”
We were a family of 5 staying at Casa Fabbri. It was a stunning location in the mountains and the people were so friendly and helpful. Emma's directions were great and we found lots of useful information at the villa about activities in the area. We had an incredibly relaxing time with bursts of sight seeing in between. There is so much to explore and discover in the surrounding areas, we are definitely planning a return trip in the future. Emma is so lovely and helpful, we felt very welcome and looked after. We cant wait to visit beautiful Italy again!
“Marvelous surrounding, very kind people at a great place to stay and spend holidays”
Emma and her husband are very kind people! The house had everything you wished for, it suited it´s purpose and we were pleasantly surprised that towels, sheets and even a washing machine were provided. The place is beautifully situated, very green during that time of year and not too warm. We would definitely come back (even though we were a bit naive - coming from the flattest country in the world, 70 to 80 kilometers does look like a piece of cake but driving from there to Firenze and/or Bologna, you need to drive through the hills and it´s steep hair pin bends but my husband did a great job there as he drove like a real racing driver in his Alfa Romeo Juliette:)
“great views, quiet location, friendly people.”
very clean place exactly as advertised, lovely lady, very helpful. well worth a visit. 10 out of 10 rating.
“Very peaceful and relaxing place to stay”
The house is set in a lovely area up in the mountains with great views. The apartment was very clean and spacious with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Emma the owner came to meet us when we arrived, which wasn't until about 9pm in the evening and made sure we had everything we needed. She also made sure we were ok when she came to visit her lovely parents who live in the house next door. She had left us a bottle of wine and some jams etc which was very welcoming. There is also a file in the house providing you with details about the village and the area which we found very useful. The village is a short walk via a track next to the house, where there were quite a few places to eat, drink and buy local produce. Our favourite was La Piazzeta, very good food and reasonably priced. The local people are very helpful and friendly. The garden is lovely and peaceful, with a table tennis table and comfy sun loungers. There are many places to visit, a car is recommended, but there are buses and a train station near by. We vistited Florence by car - about 1 hr 10mins drive, and Bologna by train. Its worth going further up the mountain where the ski slopes are too, for stunning views. All in all its a beautiful area, lovely house and Emma's a great host.
“A Slice of Heaven in the Apenninos”
My husband and I, along with a dear friend, stayed at Casa Fabbri for six nights. Emma Fabbri's directions were perfect. It was raining heavily when we arrived, but Emma's brother and nephew came out to greet us and carried our bags up to our apartment. Casa Fabbri was very clean, very comfortable and very cozy. Every morning, we awakened to birds singing their beautiful songs. The apartment was just a short drive or a "good" walk from the village of Vidiciatico. While in the village, I recommend that you stop by one of the local shops to stock up on a few food items, so that you can have a leisurely breakfast at "home". We loved the little shops in the village where we could pick up fantastic salami, bread, etc for lunch. Enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants; our favorite was Il Pergolino (after dinner, you can pick up some wonderful pastries for breakfast). We also loved La Piazzeta). While there is no public Wi-Fi in Vidiciatico, you will not miss it at all; Emma provided a notebook that included maps, local attractions, and more. Weather in the mountains can be a bit cool at night (went down to 30s one or two nights), so be sure to ask Emma about heat (gas heat is very expensive for the residents, so you will be charged for what you use; quite reasonable though, in my opinion). The roads are not for inexperienced drivers, but there are buses available and trains nearby. Casa Fabbri and Vidiciatico are truly a small slice of heaven in the Apenninos. I didn't want to leave. Thank you, Emma, for making us feel so welcome. Our best wishes to your family. Toby, David & Irene
“Very relaxing & peaceful holiday in the midst of nature”
The apartment was very clean & as advertised. The views from the windows & balconies were very nice & you could see the mountains on all sides. Very peaceful setting. Emma, the owner, was very friendly & even left a file with notes regarding things to do and places we could visit as well as good restaurants in the vicinity. She also picked us up from the train station and took us back when it was time to leave. We found an excellent restaurant just 10 minutes away by walk in the heart of Vidiciatico - La Piazzetta - excellent food & good value for money. You could also reach the swimming pool - Conca del Sol, in about 20 minutes by walk, by taking the short cut just behind the house. There are also a number of trekking paths you could take & other villages to visit by bus. We enjoyed visiting the village MonteAcuto, which can be reached by bus - the village is very quaint and set high up in the mountains with spectacular views. We were 4 people in total and we enjoyed the holiday & hope to go back in future.
