A friend and I stayed at La Fornace for four days in May 2012. We stayed in I Papaveri, which was a spacious apartment containing two roomy bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, plus a good size living area with sofa and dining table, and a well-stocked kitchen area with cooker, fridge, dishwasher, etc. It had a homely feeling about it, with lots of wood everywhere, and everything was clean and fully functioning.
The building containing I Papaveri was one of several buildings set in lovely grounds, with plenty of space to sit on seats or lounge on the grass or walk around the farm and see the produce. There is also an outdoor pool, which was not open at that time of year.
We were made to feel immediately welcome, and there were friendly touches such as being offered coffee in the garden (at no charge) when we had returned in mid-afternoon one day. Wi-fi is available, but the signal was too low in the apartment, and seemed to extend not far from the comfortable communal lounge area. Typical Italian breakfast is available in the dining room.
La Fornace is just five minutes' drive from Assisi, and is well placed for visits to other historic cities and sights. When we checked out, we were each given a bottle of local wine as a leaving present. I would recommend La Fornace unreservedly for a visit to this lovely area of Umbria.
