“Beautiful scenery in a relaxing setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

Marco, the owner and chef, is amazing, so you have to have at least a few meals on site and prepared by him. Lora, the other owner, is so sweet and a very welcoming and warm hostess. The rooms are not luxurious but instead comfortable; it is as if you were staying at your relative's villa. There is a beautiful pool with amazing views of Tuscany, and Lora and Marco are happy to show you around the property to interact with the animals and olive trees. The villa is in a great location, too. Close to Lucca, Siena, Pisa, the water. We also had our 11 month old daughter with us, and they provided us a cot/crib, and we were able to leave her sleeping in the room and eat dinner downstairs (it was so quiet and peaceful, we could've heard a mouse), and during the day she loved crawling around all the grassy areas and smelling the flowers and playing with the cats. A delightful stay!

We visited Lora and Marco's beautiful home in July this year and were bowled over by the quality and style of this unique place. We were biased as Lora is a former student and we had been invited to lunch while staying in a nearby part of Tuscany. We therefore did not get a chance to stay in the house but saw the stunning self- contained apartments they have created alongside their own living area in the farmhouse. we were particularly amazed by how stylish the whole place is...antique furnishings, interiors worthy of a designer magazine but including practical details such as DVDs, baby cot, tea ad coffee equipment. Lora has an incredible eye for decor and has done a beautiful job here.
In contrast to many so-called agriturismo in this region, the farm is a working one with goats, chickens, horses, geese. Our two boys were thrilled to sit on the tractors and help milk the goats, pick vegetables in the allotment and swim in the gorgeous pool overlooking the olive groves. Without doubt the highlight of our day here was the lunch prepared by Marco. Everything was homemade or homegrown...foccacia, mozzarella, goats cheese, pasta, melon...all delicious. Lora and Marco provide a huge breakfast for their guests and will cook other meals on request.
Il Fornacino has recently started taking bookings after 3 years of hard work and we strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a stunning, peaceful getaway in Tuscany. We will certainly be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The house has been lovingly renovated with a perfect balance of both Tuscan tradition and modern architecture, by the Pizzoccheri family who also wished to preserve, as far as possibile, the relationship with the nature surrounding the property, with the land, with it’s produce and with animals in a small working farm which is lovingly tended to in a modern and ecologically friendly manner. As a guest you can get a taste of the tranquil Tuscan way of life and the culinary specialities which both the location and Marco and Lora’s diligence, including in the kitchen, are able to offer you.
