Comforts that you'll find also in the restaurant which, thanks to the typical tuscan kitchen will make you known ancient values and flavours. Guests will enjoywonderful holidays in "La Forra": it's located in the very middle of the country side and, at the same time, close to the most beautiful and historical Tuscan cities as Florence ed Arezzo (40 min.), Siena and San Gimignano (1 hour). The farm LA FORRA is located in the middle of the Chianti, surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees, healty pine trees and wonderful olive trees; it faces one of the most beautiful valleys of Tuscany, the Arno river valley. The peculiar orographic conformation of this land suggested the farm's name "Fattoria la Forra" and the restaurant's name Borgoforra . The name Forra comes from the Longobard word "Furha" meaning steep ditch caused by water erosion or land subject to landslides covered by bushes and shrubs.
