Stone villa built in an old furnace and completely restored, with private swimming pool and garden. Set on the hills of Rapolano Terme in the province of Siena. Equipped with air conditioning. Pets are welcome.
Villa Il Fornacino is built in an old furnace dating back to the 17th century where, for years, bricks and tiles were produced by mixing the precious clay of this area, bearing the 'Fornace di Armaiolo' mark in plain sight. Thanks to a patient and careful restoration, the old furnace has been transformed into a welcoming and charming villa. You will be enchanted by the large brick arches, the vaults, the ceilings with the old wooden beams and the travertine stone of the external walls that make it unique, like all the old Tuscan houses. Not far from the house there is the motorway Siena - Bettolle that will allow you to reach the city of Siena in just 15 minutes and Florence and Arezzo in less than 1 hour, the house is therefore an excellent starting point if you want to visit Tuscany.
A few kilometres away is the spa town of Rapolano Terme. Here, in addition to your shopping in groceries and supermarkets, you can take refuge in the town's two spas. Mud baths, massages, pools with hot sulphurous water in wellness centres set in the most incredible landscape of the Sienese countryside. Moments of relaxation, tranquillity and regeneration for you and your friends, not only for body and mind but also for the eyes.
The historic village of Rapolano, located just above the spas, on a high hill overlooking the valley, will certainly be the destination of your evenings out for dinner, in the company of friends, Tuscan cuisine and local wine, in one of the characteristic trattorias of the village.
Around the Fornacino there is a large and well-kept green area. From the beautiful swimming pool (size 6x12m, depth 1,20-1,80m - open from 01st May to 30th September), situated in the highest part of the garden and equipped with gazebo and deckchairs, you can enjoy the enchanting view of the fourteenth-century village of Armaiolo and the surrounding countryside. To the side of the villa is a large covered gazebo equipped with outdoor furniture, perfect for enjoying the cool summer evenings or even lunches and dinners when you decide to stay at home and enjoy the pool and garden.
The furnishings are very nice and particular. The kitchen set in the old, large fireplace, woven baskets, ceramics and copper utensils hanging on the walls, the antique granite sink, the antique furniture in the living room on the upper floor and the bedrooms with warm and welcoming colours and wrought iron beds, make the villa very characteristic and above all very hospitable, you will feel at home.
