Description
The Agriturismo "L'Antica Fornace” (ancient brick-kiln) is located in the heart of Tuscany, between Volterra and San Gimignano, a few hundred meters from the village of Cedri. It is immersed in the lush setting of the Tuscan hills, situated within the 39 hectares of the farm "La Fornace", surrounded by over 700 olive trees and 3000 square meters of vineyard.

The building is found in a splendid panoramic position, at the highest point of the entire farm. The structure is completely renovated in the traditional Tuscan style both in terms of decoration and finishings with aged terracotta "mezzane" and wooden rafters.

There are four double rooms available, two with panoramic views and spacious external balconies and two with views over-looking the swimming pool, sand apartments for 2, 4 and 6 people (with the possibility of an additional bed on request).

All the apartments have large kitchen-living room areas with Tuscan style kitchens fully equipped with home comforts (dish-washers, hobs etc...), duel air-conditioning and spacious double-rooms with wrought iron beds (some of which are tester).

From the spacious terrace you can observe unforgettable sunsets in complete relaxation, perhaps reading a book or sipping a glass of excellent Tuscan Wine. Despite the distance, it is even possible to see as far as the sea on clear days.

A few meters from the farm, the restaurant "Il Gelso" (Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening) offers breakfasts on a daily basis. It is possible to taste our own-produced oil, wine and traditional products.

The services, include laundry facilities which use the vouchers available at reception. The farm is situated within the 490 hectares of the faunal reserve "Il Roglio", which offers the opportunity of splendid walking excursions and (with a bit of luck) the possibility of seeing many local species of animal, such as squirrels, hares, deers, pheasants etc.

The Agritourism has a large swimming pool, where you can relax and enjoy the splendid, typically Tuscan panorama of hills, olive groves and vineyards. A relaxing oasis in one of the most beautiful places of the Tuscan Valdera region.
