About this listing
"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.

La Fornacino is a wonderful villa in Rapolano Terme. Benedetta was a fabulous host for our family. The villa was built from an old brick manufacturing furnace and the brick and stone work is beautiful. The pool and pool deck are perfect for an early morning swim and tanning session or a late afternoon cool down after touring, wine tasting, and consuming large quantities of cured meats and cheeses.
Everything about La Fornacino was perfect for our family. The bedrooms are all roomy and contain their own shower and bathrooms. The kitchen is as Tuscan as they come. The multiple sitting areas make it quite comfortable for larger families.
Benedetta also works at a local "Ropes course" which my teenage daughters enjoyed and it helps burn off some of the calories consumed. One morning her mother was there watering the beautiful flowers and plants surrounding the villa.
We would happily return to Benedetta's family villa. We highly recommend this villa to anyone that wants to stay in the heart of Tuscany. It is about 20 minutes to Siena and 30 minutes to Montepulciano, and 1 hour 20 into Florence.
Eric thank you so much for your positive and detailed review, I'm so glad that you loved your staying at our house. And I'm happy even because your daughters enjoied high ropes courses. All of you have been very kind and respectful of the house, included your dogs!!!
Many thanks and hope to host you again.
There are only three words to describe the villa: perfect, perfect & perfect. Benedetta was a wonderful host always end available and with very good recommendations. We (two couple with four kids) had a great and relaxing vacation. The house is very spacious, each bedroom has its own bathroom attached and the pool is magnificent. We will come back next year for sure. Many thanks. Ciao Sven
I would recommend this fantastic villa to anyone looking for a nice, quiet place to stay in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. It was more than perfect for our family of 4, but would be wonderful for three times amount of people! It is very conveniently located to the heart of Tuscany - and an easy drive to Siena, Montepulciano, Volterra - everywhere! Benedetta was a gracious & kind hostess - she communicated wonderfully & even brought us free firewood & one morning stopped by to give us a breakfast cake her mother had baked just for us! The pool is just perfect and as more people learn about this property I'm sure it will be booked every week! We loved our stay and hope to one day return! Thank you, Benedetta!!!
Benedetta è stata disponobile sin dall'inizio; ci è venuta a prendere con la macchina e ci ha portati fino alla casa. La casa si è rivelata sopra le aspettative, molto grande e con tutti i comfort necessari. CONSIGLIATA!!!
Benedetta was the perfect host. She was pleasant and always ready to help. The communication with her and the check in and out were easily. The villa is homely and real tuscan style. Everything was as good as we expected it. The pool is really a highlight.
We would stay at Benedettas Tuscany Villa again anytime.
About the Host, Benedetta
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.
