The Tuscany/Umbria borders are often missed in the rush for Chianti central, a great pity as the views are magnificent, the hills beautifully wooded and verdant, and there are many small villages with imposing castles. Discerning visitors to this area love to explore the hidden histories, the summer festivals, enjoy the markets and relax into the slow and utterly endearing pace of local life.
Typical of the area, this beautifully restored 19th century farmhouse with its cheery facade is ideally situated for total privacy in a country location yet a short distance from the small village of Mercatale di Cortona. Built in 1888 and newly renovated Casa Fornace is a delightful building with a long vine covered terrace; perfect for enjoying far reaching views down the valley.
