If you're looking to unwind in the beautiful Tuscan countryside and to sample some amazing local cuisine you couldn't hope for a more perfect place to stay, than Podere Il Fornacino. Lora and Marcus are excellent hosts and always more than happy to help out with recommendations of local places to visit if you ever felt the need to leave... More

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I stayed at Podere Il Fornacino for four nights in July 2015 with three female friends. We stayed in Suite dei Pappagalli which was a beautiful light and airy room with plenty of space for the four of us. The room was cool (despite the particularly hot weather!) and very simply and tastefully... More

My 9 year old son and I were fortunate enough to enjoy a wonderful stay at Agriturismo Podere Il Fornacino in October 2014. From the moment we arrived, we knew there was something very special about this place. We were warmly welcomed by Lora and Marco who are clearly very passionate about creating a very special experience for all those... More

How can Lora and Marco be so gifted? They have certainly created something very special at Agriturismo Podere Il Fornacino, a winning combination of first class accommodation and five star cooking in a idyllic setting. Our six course vegetarian evening meal and the subsequent breakfast, which followed a blissful nights sleep, were the highlight of our Tuscany cycle tour. This... More

Once in a while, you stumble upon a hidden treasure. We have visited Italy plenty of times, but never experienced anything that comes remotely close to the stay at Podere Il Fornacino. It was quite simply a beautiful, life-twisting experience that will remain with us for a long long time. Apart from the rolling hills in the picturesque landscape, the... More

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Lora and Marco's. The setting is idylic, accommodation is superb and spotlessly clean. We were fortunate enough to experience the gastronomic delights of Marco's home grown produce. The six course dinners were a truly amazing experience. We were really blown over by the beautiful gardens, olive groves, swimming pool and terrace.... More

We booked this holiday based on a recommendation and the previous positive reviews and are so thankful that we did. Their small holding is located in the stunning, rolling hills of Tuscany about 30 minutes drive south of Pisa. We stayed in the Suite della Rose which was converted from part of the original, ancient farmhouse and it was beautiful... More

We only spent a few days with Lora and Marco, but it was an amazing experience. We were made to feel very welcome and the accommodation was fantastic and the food was incredible and so beautifully presented! We felt totally relaxed by the time we left. The surroundings are so peaceful; it is hard to imagine now how peaceful they... More

Heaven is where we are all gonna end up, but Paradise is a place in Italy which Marco and Lora have created at their farm. I've been there again and really cannot imagine a better place to go on holiday for a bit of country living and tranquillity.

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. The house is surrounded by a large garden with lawns and many varieties of plants and trees. There is also an attractive swimming pool with stunning rural views. The surrounding area offers visitors many possibilities for walking and bird spotting. Nature lovers will appreciate the beautiful scenery and walks in the Mediterranean woods which grow on the hills above the village. The many islands of the Tuscan archipelago can be reached from Piombino and Livorno and the islands of Elba and Capraia are possible as a day trip. ... more   less
