My teenage son and I spent three days here in August 2014, to do 3hr rides each day, and enjoyed every single minute.

Sharon was an outstanding hostess and leader.

On our first day, and after introducing us to our horses, we had a quick lesson in the school to get used to them before we went off across amazing countryside for a beautiful scenic hack.

Our second day was a much tougher ride, going up steep stony paths, and through dense forests, to an amazing mountain top view of the entire area. An absolutely shattering but stunning experience.

Our third day, we were taken again through forests and across fields, to a stunning derelict village.

The horses are so well behaved and easy to handle. Sharon and Lorenzo look after them so well.

You will see parts of the area you would never get the opportunity to see otherwise. And the views are just astounding.

We would highly recommend booking with La Fiaba, and we will definitely be going back.

I'd ridden regularly years ago, and this was the perfect place to rediscover horses and riding and Tuscany! During and after each ride, my face would hurt from smiling—such a joyful experience. Sharon and Lorenzo treat their horses and guests so well, and the trails are gorgeous. I had the chance to ride three of their horses, all of whom were spirited, well-mannered, and great to ride and hang out with, over the course of a three-day weekend. It was lovely getting to know the stable, and share meals after a long ride!

We spent a week as guests of La Fabia. Sharon and Lorenzo clearly care that their guests have a wonderful time. We contacted Sharon in advance and her responses were indicative of her flexibility and desire for us to have the holiday we wanted. The arranged accommodation was superb.

The horses are clearly well cared for and are suitable for different abilities. We had a variety of half day rides in the beautiful countryside, as well as one longer one. There were opportunities to canter, and we were lucky that for most of the time we could set the pace.

With one free day and a number of afternoons, we were able to explore the nearby medieval hill towns (with stops for some lovely gelati) and take a day trip to Florence.

I had so nice time in La Fiaba on May. Horses were so nice and beautiful and Sharon and Lorenzo so good hosts. Tuscan hills were beautiful like always and I enjoyed my time so much. Thank you so much for that experience!

Our two children had in August 3 lovely trips in the Tuscany hills. Sharon and the others were very kind. The horses are nice and friendly and we adore Croissant (little cat)
