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

I have now had two great experiences with Sharon, Lorenzo and their horses. The first one was over Christmas 2012. We rode out with Sharon on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day and Lorenzo cooked us fantastic meals on our return washed down with the local wine. I enjoyed it so much that I returned in May of this... More

In May 2013 we (me, my boyfriend and my best friend) went horse riding with Sharon and Lorenzo of La Fabia. A fantastic idea from my boyfriend (who thought horse riding was easy..). We were totally unexperienced but Sharon and Lorenzo took very good care of us and showed us the basis horse-riding skills within 30 minutes. After this we... More

We just returned from spending 5 days at La Fiaba with Sharon and Lorenzo. This was our first horse riding holiday abroad and when we made the booking, we didn't quite know what to expect and it turned out to be such a lovely experience! The horses at La Fiaba were tame and easy to manage (and that's coming from... More

We were able to rent horses and did a trek into the countryside of this beautiful wine region. Afterwards they arranged a wine tasting that was very good! Unique perspective to see this part of Tuscany.
