It consists of a modern kitchen with dishwasher, a large and cozy living room with sofa bed (200x160 cm), a delightful double bedroom and a large and beautiful bathroom with a large shower cabin. "Il Forno - Ground floor" is equipped with air-conditioned and is furnished with great care and with exclusive pieces from our family.
Also this apartment has an equipmet of table and chairs and can enjoy a reserved space in the garden just outside (exclusive use of this apartment )
Very nice farmhouse of the end of 1700 (already surveyed in the first cadastre of the Granducato of Tuscany in 1812) consists of two apartments with independent entrance and well separated, “La Loggia” and “Il Forno”.
Furthermore , the apartment "Il Forno" is divided on two floors (first floor and ground floor), each with separate entrance and can be rented either all together (the first floor and ground floor) or separately.

All apartments are furnished with great care and respect for Tuscan tradition, with characteristic wooden beamed ceilings. The villa is located in a beautiful location in the heart of Montagnola, a beautiful hilly and wooded zone declared "Site of Importance" by the European Community (EC), only 10 km and few minutes drive from the center of Siena and is located in close proximity of the famous "Via Francigena", (the old road that pilgrims of northern Europe were to go to Rome and that crosses the whole of Tuscany all the Tuscan way has been recently mapped ) with the possibility of beautiful walks starting directly from the house. Ideal for those who want a peaceful holiday and relaxation. Outer space, a real park bigger than 3 acres, allowing guests to each apartment to be able to isolate in perfect tranquility and enjoy in a "heart space", also includes a nice pool whose use is restricted to guests, with chairs and umbrellas, as well as tables and chairs. Very quiet and relaxing, ideal for families or groups of friends who want to maintain their privacy.
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.
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.
We contacted Vitoria on very short notice due to a late cancellation on our already booked accommodation .
Victoria accepted our booking on the same day and arranged to meet us at a designated location so we could follow her to the villa in the countryside outside of Sienna. She even suggested to stop at the supermarket on the way as there are no shops close to the villa.
We stayed in the ground floor apartment which is very comfortable and cosy. It is a newly renovated apartment with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the quiet relaxing atmosphere after spending the days out sightseeing. We enjoyed it so much we stayed a extra night. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. Thank you Vitoria and David for your warm hospitality.

Nous avons passé huit jours merveilleux en Toscane. Cette maison est un droit idéal pour se reposer et se ressourcer après des journées passées à parcourir la région. En voiture, Sienne est à 15mn, le Chianti à 20mn, San Gimignano à 50mn, Florence et Pienza à environ 1h.
L'appartement Il Forno est situé au rez-de-chaussée, il ouvre sur le jardin qui est immense et boisé. L'appartement est spacieux, confortable, bien équipé, décoré avec goût.
Notre première visite en Toscane et nous avons été séduits sur toute la ligne : En pleine nature, parfait pour les ornithologues amateurs, Sienne et supermarché à 15 minutes, espace très intime avec terrasse privée, belle piscine et vues à couper le souffle, jardins fabuleux (merci à Somina pour tout son travail). Très bien situé pour des visites d’une journée dans les environs : Florence, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, le Chianti, Volterra, Arezzo, etc.
Accueil chaleureux de nos hôtes Vittoria, David et Simona. Passionnés de leur région, ils nous ont très bien conseillés pour des visites, resto et vignobles. Ils ont été toujours disponibles pour toutes questions, et ce, même très tard le soir.
L’appartement est fidèle aux photos du site web : confortable, super tranquille, propre, entièrement rénové (cuisine, salle de bain, etc) et bien insonorisé, cuisine très bien équipée et lits confortables.
Seul regret : séjour trop court!
Merci à la famille Landi pour ces souvenirs mémorables de la Toscane.
My wife and I stayed for one week in this wonderful apartment. Although the weather was not so good we had a fantastic time in the Tuscany. The apartment was really great, it was very good equipped, absolutely clean and totally renovated only a few months ago.
Cooking in the kitchen was a pleasure, because everything needed was available, like gas stove with 4 burner, electric furnace, microwave, dishwasher, big refrigerator with separate freezer and a great variety of pots, pans and dishes.
The property was very sophisticated with many nice trees, bushes and flowers in an absolute quiet and lovely scenery. You can really see the great effort to keep the property in that good condition. The apartment, the property and the landscape had everything you need for a relaxing and dreamlike holiday.
The location near Siena – the heart of the Tuscany – was one of the main reasons to book this apartment. From the property you can reach most of the best places in the Tuscany in each direction, like Siena (15min), Florence and Volterra (1 h), Pisa and Lucca (less than 2 hours), San Gimingnanon (less than 1 h)and all of the nice small towns of the Crete (less than one hour).
The landlords of this apartment, Vittoria and her father David are really nice people. Vittoria gave us a very good explanation where we can find everything in the nearby area. She gave us a lot of maps with tips to find everything we need in the area of Siena. The communication with her via Email and SMS was without complications and every question was answered directly.
Unfortunately we had to leave the apartment after one week - when our holiday ended. We wished to stay there for more days because we enjoyed this week so much! But we are sure that we come back in a hopefully not too far future!
Thank you Vittoria and your family!!!

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?"
