About domizio moretti

I am 55, I am from Florence, I spent first years of my life here, in the town that I love most. I have lived, for study or work, in NYC, London, Paris, Milan, San Peterburg. Now I am spending a lot of time in Central America for my actual job: Renewable Energy plants, particularly wind farms.

I speak fluently Italian, English, French and Spanish. I can speak also Russian and Portuguese.

I love travelling everywhere, for my work or just for fun, I have lived or visited more or less 80 countries all over the world, but nowhere I had the emotion of a sunset seen from Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

I love also reading, cinema, eating out (!) and cooking, sports, expecially biking, running and swimming.

I decide to rent my apartment in Florence and my family villa in the country mainly because I am travelling very often and I think that houses must be lived and not stay closed for long periods. These residences are very comfortable, ideal for people who want to make themselves at home. I have lots of nice places to suggest to my guests in Florence and the whole Tuscany.

domizio moretti purchased this villa in 1930

Villa Falterona in June 2017

  • 4 of 5

First of all I like to thank Owner of villa Domizio for being friendly and available and in contact during our holidays . Also thanks to Domizios mother for arranging excellent Tuscany dinner in villa. Villa is situated in 20 min car drive fm Florence airport - so one can consider to avoid car-rental . Villa has nice pool and views from poolside to wineyard , pool has morning/midday sun , villa is big enough and has several eating-relaxing areas , mostly equipped kitchen and lot of books and owners personal items in rooms . As remarks for next visitors to know : 1. there is shooting range not far away from villa and gunshots were in air for couple of days during our stay, not really disturbing but also not pleasant 2. telephone and internet connection are available , but very poor in villa area , time to time signal was lost 3. there are 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in villa , but not bathroom with every bedroom ( only 2 fitted in this manner ) .

Anyway - thanks for hospitality Tuscany , we'll be back on day !

Very beautiful and very authentic! Owner was incredible and took care of our every need.

  • 5 of 5

The property is a 17th century villa surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Ten members of our family were more than comfortable in the many bedrooms and bathrooms, living spaces, indoors and outside eating areas and the most beautiful pool with lush surroundings...flowers, lemon and lime trees everywhere. We were close to Florence and it was quite easy to visit all the sights in Tuscany. Exploring the villa and grounds was a special treat as the many floors, balconies, stairs, and rooms were very interesting yet welcoming. The kitchen is well equipped and there are wines from the very vineyards on the property. The housekeeper lives on the grounds and is eager to help in anyway. The owner was incredibly nice and told us about the history of this villa which has been in his family for 70 years. The near by village had good places to eat. I would recommend this property as a fantastic place to bring friends and family. Our stay was spectacular...something for everyone from 70-10 years of age. Thanks so much Domizio!

Wonderful two weeks

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at villa la Falterona was lovely. The house was roomy and adequately stocked. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had plenty of equipment and the caretaker was very helpful. The villa was fabulously secluded while being very convenient to the train into the center of Florence and the local amenities. The outdoor space and pool were as represented in the pictures and could not have been nicer. Finally, our host was gracious and accommodating in every way. It was a great vacation experience.

Beautiful views, comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa la Falterona! The villa is very comfortable and has so much space that even with 2 families staying there we never felt crowded or in each other's way. It is very well equipped and everything in the house was easily accessible. Besides the comfort, the views are spectacular, especially from the rooftop or up in the vineyard. We had a few minor issues which were addressed promptly by the owner Domizio and the housekeeper Nella (she lives in the house in front of the property). The pool was a pleasure to have and it was fun to play water volleyball and float on the tubes. The villa is also very accessible to the train (about a mile walk) which is great if you don't plan on renting a car (we did not). There is a great bakery right past the train station on the right that has wonderful croissants and cream puffs. If you don't have a car, be aware that the driveway up to the villa is long and a bit steep. Domizio provides great information about the area, transportation, restaurants, etc and was kind enough to arrange a very reliable taxi for our excursions. The only drawback to the whole stay was that there was a firing range over the hill which could not be seen but could be heard on several days of our stay. Overall a wonderful stay in a beautiful, comfortable and scenic villa!

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a special place to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. Villa La Falterona was not just special it was fabulous, beautiful, perfect, amazing – simply the best. The Villa itself is stunning and immaculately kept. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful – vineyards and olive trees for as far as the eye can see and close to the villa rose bushes, jasmine, lemon trees and wisteria perfume the air and provide the eye with a stunning array of color and beauty. The location is perfect. Florence can be reached in minutes by car or train and Lucca, Siena and Pisa are also close by. Although you may just want to stay put by the beautiful pool, walk the grounds and lounge on the loggia. Best of all are the owners who welcomed us with open arms – sharing their knowledge of Italy, the local area and best places to visit and dine. We look forward to returning again and again. Thank you so much for giving us the experience of a lifetime.
