Nice, but...

Lovely apartment, setting if you want solitude, close to Siena by car. BUT... this was not really as advertised. This home is about 10km off the main road, almost 2km up a dirt/gravel road with no signage. Very difficult to find, no GPS will find this house until you've already arrived. The host and his daughter were mostly very nice, gave us map of area, and tips on restaurants and location, but we and the others staying here had alot of difficulty finding it (they had to come get us in Monteriggioni and the other people circled for 3 hours). Then wanted us to park around back of property when front was far more convenient. You have only limited grace amount to use for heat/hot water and would be charged extra if you went over, gave us a hard time about an extra person they weren't expecting, and had to meet with them again to return the deposit. Seemed like alot of hassle to be in the middle of nowhere.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate suggestions and criticisms of our customers because they really help us to improve our offer and in this case too we will treasure the suggestions, but we think it is necessary to clarify some things : the house is at the end of a dirt road (1.7 miles) along which there are 11 among houses and villas, this road is well signposted and is easily findable by most GPS, but being a country road, GPS not indicates exactly house numbers and that is why we always provide our guests, prior to their arrival (and in this case it was done), the exact details to be entered into the GPS, together the Google Maps coordinates and our phone numbers, asking the cell phone numbers of the guests, just to avoid any misunderstanding.
The house is about 12 km (less then 20 minutes drive), not from the main road, but even from the center of Siena ! It 'really ungenerous to say that we are in the middle of nowere.
As far as the parking lot, it is true, it is more convenient to park in front of the house, and that is what is always allowed when the two apartments are occupied by the same group, but when the groups are different, we kindly ask both to park in the lot behind the house (25 meters away ), this will enable everyone to have the right peace and tranquility, of course it is always allowed the loading and unloading.
About our consumption policy, all it's very simple : "Prices include water, gas and electricity
They do not include the cost of gas for heating, - calculated consumption - and the cost of firewood for the stove." So I do not understand why the counts on consumption, it was ( it is, and it will be) all inclusive.
Finally, the person who came later. Of what we had not been warned and, perhaps it does not consider that we are required, by law, to inform the competent authorities .the generality of our guests, and if we dont we can incur fines or penalties.
However, all this will be an incentive for us to communicate more and better with our customers to ensure that their holiday is, indeed, a beautiful holiday.

We had high hopes about the farmhouse from the reviews on HomeAway, and I am glad to say that they were correct - this is a fantastic place to relax and unwind,
David and family went out of their way to ensure that everything we needed or wanted was available and they explained where to find the nearest market and David also located some great restaurants for us.
The farmhouse was excellent - very spacious and well appointed, The pool received a workout as well.
We will be very happy to go back to Il Forno the next time we are in Italy and would recommend it to our friends.
Thanks again David for your wonderful farmhouse and the warm welcome we received from you and your family.

This was the first time for our family to use VRBO, and because of our stay at Borgo dei Fondi, we will definitely use it again. We arrived in the dark, got lost finding the property, and owners Simona and Vittoria met us in town and led us to the apartment. They got us settled in by telling us everything we needed to know about the place. We met David the next day who was most friendly, helpful and accommodating. We stayed in 'La Loggia' with our two teenage sons and thoroughly enjoyed our week there. Although it was cold and sometimes rainy, we took long walks outside and spent many hours just relaxing. A highlight for our younger son was the Siena vs. Naples football match we attended with the tickets Simona had purchased for us before our arrival! It was easy to drive into Siena and Florence and other nearby towns like the adorable San Gimignano. If you're looking for a place that's just a little 'out of the way', this is it! I can only imagine how lovely it would be in the spring or summer when one could explore the surrounding grounds or lounge by the pool soaking in views of the Tuscan countryside. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and will be looking forward to the day my family can return!

We stayed in apartment Il Forno as part of my wife's 50th birthday celebrations and absolutely loved it. The owners David, Simona, and Vittoria were the nicest people we met on our trip, they gave me great restaurant ideas for a birthday celebration and even printed some documents for me. Thank you again for all your help and excellent communication. The apartment was really well set up and the wifi, freezer, washing machine, and barbecue were all greatly appreciated. We really enjoyed our stay here, the apartment was great and the grounds were fantastic for our kids to explore and play in. I highly recommend both apartments (the owners gave us a tour of La Loggia) at Borgo Dei Fondi, it was the perfect place for us to celebrate a special occasion and a great place to relax.

The property is located 10 min / car from the center of Siena, nestled in the beautiful countryside of Montagnola. It is the ideal starting point to visit places of historic interest and scenic as Volterra, San Gimignano, Pienza, Montalcino, which are all within easy reach, as well as the cities of Florence, Arezzo and Pisa.

Beautiful trails, from Siena to visit the Chianti and the Crete Senesi in tours that combine unforgettable views to the best of Italian food and wine. The Tuscan coast with its most beautiful places as Castiglione della Pescaia or Argentario, is 1 hour by car. Siena is the city of the Palio, which is really an experience to live, but not only that, there are many, in fact, shows and especially artistic and musical events throughout the year mean that your holiday remains memorable .

But the real question is: what if instead of turning the rest to tan by the pool?
