The space

"Il Fornacino" is the right answer to everyone who loves to spend holidays in a private country house with his family or with closest friends. A patient and careful restoration had transformed the old furnace in an enchanting and comfortable holiday villa, respecting those features and architectural characteristics unique to Tuscan houses: the wide brick arches, the vaults, the ceilings with old wooden beams and the travertine stone of the outside walls. Not far from the villa there is the freeway which allows to reach Siena in about 15 minutes and Florence or Arezzo in less than one hour. Our guests can enjoy their holiday in the beautiful swimming pool (6x12 m, depth 1,20-1,80 m) or reading a book in the big garden around the house. The well cured furnishing, the high level details and the equipments (satellite TV, washing machine, dish-washer, oven etc.) guarantee a comfortable vacation.

The house is divided in two floors: in the ground floor there is the kitchen-dining room, a small sitting room with sofa and a room with washing machine and dishwasher. From a wood stair you can reach the first floor, where you can find a large and bright hall with fireplace, three double bedrooms and one twin bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower. The four rooms are equipped with air conditioning.

EQUIPMENT: freezer, dish-washer, washing machine, SAT TV, DVD player, oven, toaster, iron and ironing board, high chair, filter coffee maker, moka coffee maker, hairdryer, mixer, lemon squeezer, CD player.

Pets are welcome.

We spent a marvellous weekend in this charming countryhouse. I strongly recommend the place to anyone interested in visiting Siena and its countryside and/or to have relax in Rapolano Terme (Terme San Giovanni are great). Benedetta is a very gentle host and gave us some precious hints to organize the daytime. Meraviglioso casolare ristrutturato, perfetto per famiglie numerose o piccoli gruppi. La location (Armaiolo) è perfetta per fare da sponda a chi vuole vedere Siena e la Campagna vicina e/o per chi vuole passare una bella giornata a Rapolano Terme (molto bello lo stabilimento di San Giovanni). Benedetta è stata un host molto gentile e disponibile.

This was a nice Villa central to lots of different areas in Tuscany. The Villa was great especially with a bathroom in each room. Benedetta is one of the best hostess' I have ever had. Very welcoming and helpful. I recommend booking this Villa.

Well this was the second and final leg of our groups trip to Italy and we finished with a bang. Again the kindness and patience of our host Benedetta was greatly appreciated. Our group of seven encountered transportation problems once again, due to Trenitalia's scheduling errors, our arrival was much later than I had planned. But with Benedetta's help finding a rental vehicle we finally arrive safely. It was night time so we had to wait till morning to really appreciate the property's beauty and elegance. We all felt so lucky to be there. Just amazing....simply amazing!!! Tuscany at its best!!! My girlfriend and I had stayed in the area two years ago so we were just 15 min from familiar places to shop for food and a excellent ristorante for typical home cooked Tuscan meals. Most of the group wanted to stay at the villa and enjoy the property instead driving to visit wineries. Great idea!!!...little did we know there is a small family owned winery and farm down the road, literally walking distance from the villa. The whole family was there for a celebration and invited us to join them. We were given a mini tour of their family owned business which by the wine was not the only thing they produced. They produce olive oil, cold pressed, unfiltered, the old fashion way from the olive grove of 15,000 trees. They also raise these pink bellied pigs and make some of the finest salami, pancetta, sausages and other types of pork products I've ever taste. A "Grand Slam" for us!! This villa is just so perfect for a large group of weary travelers who just want hang out locally and enjoy many things that Tuscany has to offer all on foot with a warm and wonderful host who is willing to go the extra mile to help make you visit a good experience. Thank Benedetta!! We will see you again!!

I honestly don't know where to begin to describe how wonderful this villa is and how welcoming Benedetta was during our stay. The home is perfectly situated in Tuscany where you can drive in any direction to have the most quintessential country Italian experience or to the cities of Sienna or Florence. The home is absolutely beautiful with spectacular views. Inside, every room has it's own bathroom which made it perfect for two families with children. I couldn't get over the architecture of this place and the number of perfectly situated sitting areas. As for our host, Benedetta is the best. She went out of her way to make us feel at home. She is the type of host that makes you want to return the favor for her wonderful hospitality. I would and will recommend this villa to everyone that I know. Thank you Benedetta for a wonderful stay.

We were 6 people plus two kids and had an amazing time in this wonderful, clean and spacious house. Benedetta was always reachable and could help us a lot when it came to questions around the house but also recommendation around. Also her mum baked us a delicious cake and we felt very welcoming in this place. We recommend this place to anybody who wants to spend their holidays in the toscany.

Mi piace viaggiare, conoscere nuovi luoghi e nuove persone. Non amo visitare i posti più turistici, per questo ai miei ospiti consiglio sempre di visitare i paesi meno conosciuti ma, per questo, anche più autentici.
