A wonderful stay at I'l Forno

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your very comfortable farmhouse apartment - I'l Forno- in the lovely Tuscany Region. The setting was beautiful and the apartment was very comfortable. We prepared meals in the kitchen and enjoyed the modern bath complete with the radiator for a warm morning setting. Vittoria was most helpful in getting us situated and was flexible with our 7 PM arrival time.This was a big help. Mrs. Landi kindly delivered a new coffee maker after we found a crack in the original one. Along with her father David they were most helpful in directing us to a nearby medical clinic to attend to some first aid items. We enjoyed meeting the whole family Suggestions for local touring were also very helpful. We would be happy to return for another visit.

Tranquility at its finest in this historic villa.

  • 5 of 5

It was like going back in time. Remote but not isolated. Close to Siena and a lot of other places that were easily accessible but once done touring around it was so wonderful to come back to this beautiful, quiet piece of paradise. Interior of our apartment was complete with everything we needed. Loved the antique furniture which gave it a lovely ambience. The bathroom was very modern which was really neat. We totally would come back and spend more time. Two nights was just not enough to enjoy this place! David was such a gracious host directing us to the property, insuring we were completely settled, and answering all of our many questions and welcomed us with a lovely bottle of red wine from the region. We highly recommend this place!

Lovely apartment in quiet forest area

  • 5 of 5

We were the first visitors to stay in this apartment as it had only just been completed. It is modern and clean, although the whole building was centuries old. It was well equipped, and a few little things that were not present were very quickly provided by David. The surroundings were delightful,very peaceful, lovely gardens and forest but the apartment was within only 10 minutes of Siena (finding the apartment the first time was a little tricky but the GPS helped). The pool was great and would be wonderful for families. The bed was satisfactory, and the apartment was very spacious for the two of us. Some noise was caused by the occupants of the apartment above, but for the time we were there it wasn't too disruptive. David was a very welcoming host, who gave us a map of the area and made suggestions of restaurants in the area (all of them were fantastic!) and places that we might like to visit. We had a great time here. We highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a quiet rural area.

restful , relaxing beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable stay in a very well equipped apartment.

The farmhouse sits in a quiet natural forested area less that 10 Km from Sienna so it was easy to get in and out of the city, we shopped on the edge of sienna (nice and easy).

David Simone and Vittorio were so helpful and kind ,going the extra mile to ensure we had the best stay. David had a good knowledge and history of the area and Vittoria helped to point us in the right direction for places of interest of which there were lots and also recommended good restaurants. Unlike many pools this one was a good depth and provided a welcome respite from the midday sun, a large garden allowed for space if needed from other guests

The surrounding forests were full of wildlife and a big treat for us was to watch at close proximity in the garden two fox cubs playing - how good is that

Many thanks once again and we hope to be back.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine dans l'appartement de Vittoria et David. L'appartement est agréable et tout à fait conforme aux photos. Nous avions d'ailleurs apprécié que chaque photo du site soit clairement attribuée à un des trois appartements. Les équipements sont en bon état et très bien entretenus.

La situation est idéale pour visiter le sud de la Toscane et même pour des balades à pied en partant de la maison. Seul bémol, peut-être un peu trop isolé hors saison quand les autres appartements sont vides.

Wir haben im Mai 2017 10 wunderbare Tage in der Ferienwohnung Il Forno - Borgo dei Fondi verbracht. Die Wohnung ist optimal für 2 Personen. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und die Ausstattung der Küche ist sehr gut! Umgeben von einem traumhaften Garten mit schönen Sitzgelegenheiten, haben wir die Zeit sehr genossen! Von David und seiner Frau Simona wurden wir mit interessanten Tipps für Ausflüge in die Umgebung versorgt. Die Betreuung war super! Vielen Dank nochmal. Jederzeit kommen wir gerne wieder.

Car: necessary

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 : "and if, instead of going around, I stay to tan by the pool?"
