Located in central Umbria about 12 km from the medieval hilltown of Todi, La Fornaia is a completely remodeled stone farmhouse that is comfortable and welcoming.

Surrounded by manicured farms with sheep and goats and crops, one never tires of the remarkable views of the rolling Umbrian countryside. There are so many places to enjoy them! The swimming pool is beautifully landscaped with gardens and olive groves. The shaded terrace is furnished for lounging and relaxing and the large open courtyard offers a terrific space for outdoor dining with both the grill and wood-burning pizza oven conveniently positioned.

La Fornaia is centrally located with easy access to Rome, Florence and Perugia airports and within an easy drive to most anywhere in Umbria.

It is truly a perfect place to recuperate from the daily grind, to gather with friends or as a home base for day trips around Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria.

The property comprises a 17th Century farmhouse and stable, both of which have been recently renovated with excellent taste and care. The two can be rented together to accommodate up to 12 guests. When only the farmhouse is rented, the stable (annex) remains closed. The annex is wheelchair accessible and has its own private garden as well as sharing the courtyard with the main villa. It too has been carefully restored to reveal the original character of the stables.

La Fornaia’s traditional stone walls, cotto tiled flooring, wood beam ceilings and special antique pieces create an impressive contrast with the modern touches throughout. Attention to detail sets this villa apart; quality linens, well-equipped gourmet kitchen, hi-speed wireless internet, satellite TV and full laundry facilities. Top quality linens, towels and bathrobes are also provided.

The American owner is welcoming and helpful. She is able to arrange pre-stocking, a local cook, cooking lessons and other services such as drivers, tours and bike rentals. The closest food shop and restaurant are at 5 minutes in the medieval hamlet of Sismano, known for its castle with 11th century origins.

The main house has four bedrooms and three 1/2 bathrooms and sleeps up to 8 guests. The study can accommodate an additional 2 children.
