Rent this Italian Villa & Farm for Your Next Vacation or Wedding Venue!
Once the community ''forno'' (oven) dating back to 1789 - Il Forno Podere Toiano - local villagers would come by from the hamlet of Toiano (now a ''ghost town''), and other nearby towns of Palaia, Legoli & Montefoscoli to buy bread & chat with each other dolce vita style. Today - a completely remodeled large 2 story home with lots of natural sunlight in an authentic Tuscan style with open floor design, lots of french doors and windows, high ceilings, large beams, terracotta floors, refurnished & tastefully redecorated, on 35 acres (14 hectares) with olive trees, swimming pool, pergolas, gardens & panoramic views. Very private, yet very centrally located in Tuscany along the Strada del Vino delle Colline Pisane. Named by Oliver's Travel blog as one of the *Top 10 Family Friendly Villas in Tuscany, you can rent this Palaia farmhouse for your next vacation or wedding in La Bella Toscana!

French doors take you to this outdoor wood slab dining loggia (below) from the large, well-equipped country kitchen (large kitchens are uncommon in Italy/Europe).
