About The Owner

In 1918 "Commendator" Guido Sforni acquired the factory from Conte Napoleone Passerini of Firenze. the factory was made of 13 units, each one with a piece of land and a living farm for people and animals.

Guido Sforni needed all its energies to reclaim the land, to restructure houses and buy machines.

Time passing, factory growing: 150 unemployed people gained a job thanks to Guido Sforni. Cultivation was traditional: wheat, corn, forage, vines and olives. Machines were best of breed.

After the ned of fascism, that stole and destoyed properties, "Commendator" Sforni started again with the same energy and willing so much so that Liberation Front and Allies nominated him as Commiss

In 1950 he died. His heirs kept on his job, buying and changing lands till present setting.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Perfect for couples, families and yoga groups :-)

  • 5 of 5

My stay in Lorenzana has been just perfect. I organized a one-week yoga retreat and the place fully satisfied my need: great space for the practice, clean and confortable bedrooms, deliciuos meals and a wonderful swimming pool for relaxing moments. The property is big and very well-maintained and the house is furnished in true Tuscany style. Termal baths, good tipical restaurant and Pisa town not far away. I definitely raccomend a stay in Lorenzana and don't forget to buy olive oil, wine and honey produced in the farm... a truly superb tasty experience!!! Thank you Chiara! Rossana
