In the Tenuta Di Villa Arceno, Casale Fornaci is a magnificent country house located inside the Arceno Estate. Surrounded by a grove of olive trees atop lush green hillsides, this 13th century restoration with its terracotta floors, wood beamed ceilings and stone walls is the perfect vacation villa for families wanting to enjoy Tuscan life at its finest. Decorated in true and classic Tuscan style, the Casale has comfortable sleeping accommodations for eight (8) people, and is equipped with every modern comfort.
Dine al fresco in the private courtyard while sipping local wine that comes from the vineyards on the grounds estate. In the courtyard of the main house, you will find the original, centuries-old wood-burning oven that has been skillfully restored and is now perfectly ready to make delicious home made pizza.
But perhaps you prefer a barbeque in the garden? In the privately owned and extensive gated park, to which only you have access, you can enjoy a lamppost-lit dinner, in the shadow of an ancient oak tree. The modern grill set atop antique bricks and the large white-stone table, will create the perfect setting for a meal outdoors.
If you like to walk in the open air, the private park offers over ten thousand square meters of land. The flowers of the many fruit trees on the property will enchant you: cherries, walnuts, pomegranate, figs, apricots and almonds, just to name a few. You can walk among olive tree orchard or simply sit and wait in silence to watch the deer and wild boars that, in a distance, cross the park in the hours of dawn and dusk. Search the sky for pheasants and falcons.
