We recently returned from a week in this glorious little oasis in the Tuscan hills. It is the perfect place to recharge batteries and reset life.
Il Forno is small but perfectly formed - just what we were looking for. The setting is gorgeous and the surrounding scenery stunning. There are great local restaurants and also really easy travel to Pisa, Lucca and Florance. A good balance of busy and quiet days.
Our hosts Adrian and Christopher were so welcoming, helpful and a font of local information. Nothing was too much for them!
It was our first visit to Tuscany but we will definitely be back.Would most definitely recommend this beautiful part of the world.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Borgo della Madonnina is set in over seven acres of pine and chestnut forest, with abundant olive and fruit trees and beautiful views over the valley. The small touches make a stay here special. The houses date from the mid 1700s and have many original features, including exposed stone walls and original ceilings with chestnut beams and cotto tiles. The overall feel is light and airy, with simple but thoughtful décor, pleasant furniture, pretty bedding and plenty of fresh towels. ... more less
