Overview

Il Forno is another of our properties on the wine producing estate of Fattoria Badia di Morrona (see also La Corte here>> and Villa Lisa here>> ). It is a recently restored old farmhouse that has been divided into two first floor apartments just 100m below Villa Lisa and close to the minor road that leads to the village of Chianni. It is surrounded by large, grassy garden areas and some trees. Although the house is set in the valley there are good views to the opposite hills of Casciana Terme.

This is a pretty area, offering you a real taste of Tuscan living, not too touristy, but within easy striking distance of all the main sights of Tuscany. Volterra, Lucca, Pisa and the coast are easily accessible whilst fine days out can be enjoyed in Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. With several good restaurants in the area you will have plenty of opportunities to sample the local fare and there is good shopping and a weekly market in Ponsacco which is close-by.

On the ground floor of Il Forno there is a very good restaurant which belongs to the estate and is normally open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. They serve typical Tuscan meals and a full meal including starter, first course, second course, dessert and coffee plus estate wine costs 25 Euros per person. The garden areas of Forno 1 and Forno 2 are private and fenced in so that the guests of the apartments will never be disturbed by the guests of the restaurant.

Outside: Lovely salt water swimming pool (12m x 6m) with poolside furniture. Large barbecue in the garden for shared use by both apartments.

Notes: This area is good for walking - in the hills above Chianni you will find marked trails in the forest and horse riding, tennis and bike hire are all available nearby. Also please note that free Wi-Fi internet access is available at Il Forno.
