This is where the old bakery used to be for the farmers and their workers. It has been transformed into the loveliest little 1-bedroom ground-floor cottage with views over our olive trees and the forests and vineyards beyond.

You have your own out-door space that you can use for your al-fresco breakfast in the sun, and is still complete with its original oiled beams and terracotta tiles. There is an open plan kitchen, dining area and living space, a bedroom with a double bed, and a small but functional bathroom with w/c, shower and basin. It also has its own antique terracotta wood-burning stove for those autumn evenings if it gets a bit chilly*.

This cottage apartment is very picture-postcard Tuscan, quite small, but well-proportioned, and is a favourite with our family and friends who come to stay.

Need a 1-bedroom apartment but they are both full?

Then drop us a line. We're usually happy to let you have a 2 bedroom apartment with a hefty discount (15%) as long as you promise to use only one bedroom and one bathroom to keep our cleaning down.

* During the chilly seasons there is no central heating in Forno, but the lovely little wood burner throws out a lot of heat when it gets going.
