Rent this Italian Villa & Farm for Your Next Vacation or Wedding Venue in Tuscany!

Once the community ''forno'' (oven) dating back to 1789 - Il Forno Podere Toiano - local villagers would come by from the (now abandoned) town of Toiano, and other nearby towns of Palaia, Legoli & Montefoscoli to buy bread & chat with each other dolce vita style. Today - a completely remodeled large 2 story home with lots of natural sunlight in an authentic Tuscan style with open floor design, lots of french doors and windows, high ceilings, large beams, terracotta floors, refurnished & tastefully redecorated, on 35 acres (14 hectares) with olive trees, swimming pool, pergolas, outdoor dining loggia, gardens & panoramic views. Very private, yet very centrally located in Tuscany. Well equipped kitchen leads out to a dining loggia with wonderful views, and steps lead down between olive trees to the villa’s private swimming pool on a sunny terrace at the foot of the garden. Amazing 360-degree views of surrounding countryside, spectacular sunsets. Named by Oliver's Travel blog as one of the *Top 10 Family Friendly Villas in Tuscany, you can rent this Palaia farmhouse for your next vacation or wedding in La Bella Toscana!

Located in Toiano (PI), the nearest towns are Montefoscoli, Palaia, Legoli, Peccioli and not too far away are Pontedera, San Gimignano, Volterra.
