Quintessential Rural Tuscany

This is a classic Tuscan farmhouse built with local stone in the 1800’s We purchased the house and the land a few decades ago and restored it keeping alive the original character and a rustic charme that will warmly welcome you. Today we like to share this unique place with like-minded people who are traveling the most fascinating part of Italy. La Fornacina could be many things, depending on what you are seeking. A white canvas where you explore a creative process, an intimate yoga retreat, or a shelter where, with good friends or family, you can treat yourself in a unique atmosphere. It can be also a place where to make new friends, probably people who made your same choice of spending a vacation in a portion of the house sharing the common areas with you and other guests. But if you need intimacy ore you are large group you can get the entire house for yourself, just let us know a bit ahead of time.


Perfectly Centered in Central Italy

La Fornacina is centered in a pristine natural environment near the thermal baths of Saturnia Terme, in the Morellino di Scansano DOC wine territory less than 2h from the Rome Fiumicino international Airport. We are centrally located between Rome and Florence, both at less than two hours by car and therefore perfectly suited for day trips to all kind of natural, historical and food/wine attractions. We are also close to Siena, Montalcino, San Gimignano, Bolsena Lake, Perugia, Volterra and all the major points of interest of the area. The Maremma Tuscany is the southern tip of Tuscany, also know as the wild virgin “far west” of Italy, is still an “undiscovered” gem, away from the mainstream type of tourism. What is great of this part of the region compared with areas such Chianti, is the proximity to the mediterranean coast, from La Fornacina you can get to the beaches of the Argentario Coast and Giglio Island in about 40 minutes and within the same range of time you can be on top of the spectacular Mount Amiata a 6000 feet mountain with beautiful apennines landscapes and villages.

The House

La Fornacina boasts 4 large bedrooms, with kingsize beds and a private bathroom. The house has 2 additional smaller room one with a bunk bed perfect for kids and the other one with a loft bed and private bathroom.

You can book one room, two rooms combined or the entire house. The shared spaces include a beautifully equipped gourmet kitchen (look for the wood-fired brick oven to cook and make pizza!), then enjoy your meals in the large dining room whose table can accommodate up to 16 people. The 4-sided fireplace is ideal to indulge in cold nights, allowing people to relax, and enjoy the crackling fire in the comfortable living room with a book and  glass of wine. WiFi is available throughout the property for your enjoyment.
