If you love horses and appreciate their individual personalities and gifts, La Fiaba is the place to go for a lovely ride in the Tuscan Hills. Sharon matches horse and rider with thoughtful care to enable an enjoyable short-term relationship for both. I appreciated the chance to groom the fellow who would carry me for the next 3 hours.

It's easy to drive by the stable if you don't have good directions but once you are there, it is worth it. Sharon matches riders up with horses suitable for them. It is a great way to see the Tuscan countryside. Well worth it. It is a good idea to contact them ahead of time as the could be fully... More

Thank you to Sharon and Lorenzo for their hospitality, we had a great time exploring the Tuscan countryside and would love to have spent longer in a beautiful part of Italy. A unique experience highly recommended.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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)

We booked a Half Day Trail (about 3 hours) for three persons via e-mail. Date, time and payment were arranged professionally and in fluent English by Lorenzo. We were a mixed group, as my sister and myself had been riding for about a year and our father had only taken three lessons. We inquired whether it would be possible for... More

My partner and I booked a 3h hour ride with a guide via email. Firstly, the email communication went smoothly. The replies were prompt and we had arranged a time&date without a problem. We paid in advance via paypal. The hosts were professional& friendly. The horses were easy-going and we felt safe, being unexperienced riders, throughout the whole trek. The... More
