Tranquility at its finest in this historic villa.
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!
A wonderful stay at I'l Forno
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.
restful , relaxing beautiful setting
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.
Lovely apartment in quiet forest area
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.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in diesem Ferienhaus. Jederzeit würden wir wieder gern dort ein paar Tage verbringen.
Lovingly restored farmhouse in quiet surroundings
We stayed 10 days for roadbiking. Eventhough for the gravel road to the house Mountainbikes would have been the better choice, the location was perfect as a starting point to explore the amazing surrounding landscapes.
Coming back to the tranquil garden and enjoying the pool was a delight every day. Up to three parties share the big garden, but everyone has their own corner and therefore privacy is guaranteed.
The "il Forno -ground floor" apartment is lovingly furnished and the kitchen is well equipped.
David and Simona were very friendly and one can feel that they put their heart into this property.
Dear Inken and Luke ,
Wow! What a beautiful review !
Thanks, thanks , thanks
Simona, Vittoria and I are very happy that you spent a nice vacation in Toscana at Borgo dei Fondi and we like to thank you for your very nice words.
For us, it is a real pleasure when people stay well at our home and appreciate Siena and our region.
It may seem strange but, for us ( and you have perfectly realized that, thanks ) is not only business and we are happy when we can empathize with our guests.
In the future, we really hope to have you again as our guests ,Tuscany still has many things to show you…… ☺
Un carissimo saluto e un abbraccio dal cuore della Toscana
David e Simona
The property is located 15 min / drive from the center of Siena, immersed in the beautiful countryside of the Montagnola Senese. It is the ideal starting point to visit places of great historical and landscape interest such as Volterra, San Gimignano, Pienza, Montalcino, which are all within easy reach, as well as the art cities of Florence, Arezzo and Pisa.
Beautiful itineraries, starting from Siena, to visit the Chianti and the Crete Senesi in excursions that combine unforgettable landscapes with the best of Italian food and wine. The Tuscan coast with its most beautiful places Castiglione della Pescaia, L'Argentario, is 1 hour's drive away. Siena is the city of the Palio which is truly an experience to be experienced, but it is not only that, there are in fact numerous events and events especially artistic and musical that throughout the year make sure that your holiday remains unforgettable .
But the real dilemma will be: and what if instead of going around I'm going to sunbathe in the pool?
