A recently restored farmhouse divided into two apartments on a wine producing estate

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, this accommodation is one of two first floor apartments set within a recently restored old farmhouse, Il Forno is situated on the wine producing estate of Fattoria Badia di Morrona. Surrounded by large grassy garden areas the house is set within a beautiful valley with views to the opposite hills of Casciana Terme.

Each apartment is accessed by its own external staircase leading up to a small terrace with entrance into a large dining room. Internally an archway leads into the sitting room with sofas, satellite TV and Tuscan fireplace. There’s a spacious breakfast kitchen with fridge/freezer, gas hob, electric oven and dishwasher.

The apartment has a very traditional feel, with terracotta floors and beamed ceilings throughout. There’s three lovely bedrooms, one double en-suite and two twin rooms, one of which is en-suite. There is a third family bathroom and all offer shower, basin, bidet and WC (third bathroom also has a bath).

Externally there is a garden area with table and chairs for al fresco dining. There’s also a lovely salt-water swimming pool (12m x 6m) with poolside furniture, large barbecue and garden for shared use by each apartment.

This is a pretty area, offering you a real taste of Tuscan living, not too touristy, but within easy striking distance of all the main sights. Volterra, Lucca, Pisa and the coast are easily accessible, while fine days out can be enjoyed in Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. With several great restaurants in the area you will have plenty of opportunity to sample the local fare and shopping can be enjoyed at the weekly market close by in Ponsacco. This area is wonderful for walking, in the hills above Chianni you will find marked trails in the forest and horse riding, tennis and bike hire are all available nearby.

On the ground floor of Il Forno there is a fantastic restaurant belonging to the estate, normally open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Serving delicious Tuscan feasts, a full meal including starter, first course, second course, dessert and coffee plus estate wine will cost just €25 per person. The garden areas of Forno 1 and Forno 2 are private and fenced in so apartment guests will never be disturbed by guests of the restaurant.

Please Note: Heating is charged locally by meter. A security deposit of €150 is payable.
