On the wooded hillside of Montignoso, between the spa town of Gambassi Terme and Montaione, Borgo La Fornace is a stunning Tuscan country resort, created in what was once an old brick kiln.
Containing the sleekest of designer furnishings, Borgo La Fornace is a splendid example of how traditional Tuscan country buildings can be transformed in stylish, modern-day living spaces. Here, extensive restoration work was combined with the careful integration of the latest in hotel facilities and state-of-the-art communication technology (wi-fi connectivity is available throughout the complex). Guest accommodation is available in 8, split level suites and 14 luxury apartments, situated either in the fornace, or in the other buildings which comprise the borgo.
Guests dining in the hotel's La Fuga restaurant are presented with menus featuring delicious contemporary Tuscan cuisine, and an excellent selection of wines. In warm weather, the courtyard transforms in charming outdoor eatery. Those looking for a particularly romantic dining experience, should reserve a table in the panoramic private dining room, created at the top of the smokestack of the old brick kiln.
Borgo La Fornace's Crisalide Country Spa offers guests a luxurious environment where to indulge in professional massages and any of an excellent range of face and body treatments. Spa facilities include a heated pool, Turkish bath and sensorial showers.
Providing an exclusive venue for an important business meeting or special event, the resort boasts a modern reception area with seating capacity for as many as 50 guests.
The area of Tuscany surrounding Borgo La Fornace is famous not only for its vineyards, where wines such as the highly prized Brunello di Montalcino are produced, but also for the fascinating medieval hill towns of Volterra, Pienza and Montepulciano, and the great art cities of Siena and Florence. The resort's highly qualified staff will be pleased to organise excursions and wine tours, with or without a tour guide.
