Il Fornacino is a fantastic Tuscan villa, located a short distance from Rapolano Terme and within easy reach of Siena. This excellent property has been restored into a beautiful villa from its original usage as a furnace and is laid out over two floors.
Around the villa is a pretty garden with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. At the higher end of the garden is a crystal clear pool with plenty of sun and plenty of chairs to relax while soaking up the sun and views.
Outside of the villa, at the first floor level, is a wonderful panoramic terrace that looks out towards the olive dotted hills around the villa and to one side over the tree tops onto the Tuscan forest covered hills. The shaded terrace is furnished with two tables and comfortable chairs to seating 8 people. There is no immediate access to the kitchen which is on the ground floor of the villa.
The villa is entered into the ground floor where there is bright open plan room with a high terracotta tiled vaulted ceiling. Exposed stone walls provide the room with plenty of Tuscan character. In the centre is a dining table which can be expanded to seat 6 people. Along one wall is a built in kitchen unit with oven, gas hobs and a traditional stone sink. In a corner sits the large fridge with separate freezer compartment.
Passing under a long terracotta arch there is access to modernly furnished sitting area. In the centre of the room is a glass and iron table with 4 iron chairs. While two double sofas rest against the far walls. Plenty of light is provided from the upper floor via a large, wonderful iron and wood staircase.
At the top of the stairs is an entrance hall which leads out into the upper garden. To one side is a huge terracotta arch which leads into a more comfortable sitting area where there are two triple sofas and a double sofa around a fireplace. The entire room has a high wood and terracotta ceiling, and a floor paved in terracotta.
The first of the four bedrooms is located directly behind the lounge. It's a warmly decorated twin bedroom with a wooden ceiling and terracotta floor. A large window provides plenty of light. To one side is a double, antique wooden wardrobe and chest of drawers. An en-suite bathroom with shower completes the room.
To the right of the entrance hall there is the first of the double bedrooms. It is decorated in a soft, antique pink colour. The large window provides it with plenty of light. It's furnished with two antique wardrobes. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
Next to this room, down three steps is a pretty bedroom furnished with a double bed, antique chest of drawers and a wardrobe with mirror. In a corner there is a cot. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The final bedroom is decorated in blue. It has double wood and glass doors leading into the garden. This is the only bedroom without mosquito screens. It has an antique chest of drawers and a wardrobe. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
1 twin bedroom which can be made up as a double only if requested when booking.
3 double bedrooms which can all be set up as twins only if requested when booking.
All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
The dual-lane carriageway to Siena passes nearby, the road is visible from the garden. This makes the villa well positioned to get out and sight see but there is some noise from the road.
There is no fencing around the garden.
WI-FI connection can be a little slow.
