Property description

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 up ten (10) guests and is equipped with every modern comfort. We can host up to 6 guests within the main house (3 bed, 3 bath), additional guests can be hosted either in the guest house located within our private courtyard or in the coach house located just behind the main house.

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 our 80 tree olive grove 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.

The courtyard, the Loggia and the poolside are furnished with chairs, tables, loungers and umbrellas.

Our villa is the grandest unit at Casale Fornaci with a total of 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, large private courtyard and enormous private grounds.

OUTDOORS: Enjoy a dip in the outdoor swimming pool which is exclusively shared among the 3 neighbouring units. As the neighbouring villas are seldom occupied it is rarely in use.

MAIN HOUSE: The Main floor features a large master bedroom with a luxurious ensuite bathroom, a library and a second full bathroom. A stunning fully equipped kitchen, a living/dining room with a huge original wood burning fireplace and a large loggia with a breathtaking view. There is also a dining table that can seat 12. The upstairs houses 2 bedrooms with matrimonial beds, ample storage and another full bathroom. The lower level of the villa features a spacious lounge and a walkout to the private courtyard. The main house has air conditioning.

GUEST HOUSE: The guest quarter, located in the private courtyard features a living room with a matrimonial pull-out and a large bathroom.

THE COACH HOUSE: The coach house located outside the courtyard features a full kitchen with a matrimonial pull-out and a large bathroom.

Casale Fornaci is only 20 Km northeast of Siena, 8 Km near the quaint town of Castelnuovo Berardenga in the Chianti region and only 3 Km from the medieval borghi of San Gusme' and Montebenichi. The position of Casale Fornaci, in the heart of Tuscany, makes it an ideal place for day trips into the entire Chianti area as well as cities such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Arezzo. There are countless superb Tuscan restaurants and local farms selling oil and wine in the vicinity.

Our local representative will escort you to our villa and will be available for emergency contact throughout your stay.

She will provide you with a welcome basket filled with local delicacies to help you settle in on your first night as well as prepaid local mobile phone up to 10 Euros.
