About The Owner

In 1918 "Commendator" Guido Sforni acquired the factory from Conte Napoleone Passerini of Firenze. the factory was made of 13 units, each one with a piece of land and a living farm for people and animals.

Guido Sforni needed all its energies to reclaim the land, to restructure houses and buy machines.

Time passing, factory growing: 150 unemployed people gained a job thanks to Guido Sforni. Cultivation was traditional: wheat, corn, forage, vines and olives. Machines were best of breed.

After the ned of fascism, that stole and destoyed properties, "Commendator" Sforni started again with the same energy and willing so much so that Liberation Front and Allies nominated him as Commiss

In 1950 he died. His heirs kept on his job, buying and changing lands till present setting.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Tout le charme de la Toscane

  • 4 of 5

Excellent séjour à la casa Bianca. Chiara nous a réservé un superbe accueil avec visite de la propriété familiale, ses caveaux et ses jardins.

La maison était de pure tradition Toscane, un havre de paix au milieu des Cyprès, quelque peu rustique mais tellement reposante.

Les photos sont conformes à la maison.

L'accès à la piscine est un vrai plus, une petite promenade à travers la pinède et on y est. Une excellente semaine entre amis. (je ne mets pas 5 étoiles car nous avons eu une petite panne d'eau durant le séjour... pas très pratique à 8 avec des enfants!)

Rural Retreat in Authentic Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The group of houses are on their own small wooded hill with wonderful views, idyllic nature and a beautiful pool. We loved the peace and quiet and yet could travel to the sea or Pisa etc very easily. The farmhouse felt ancient and is ideal for lovers of authentic Tuscan atmosphere. Chiara and her team were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and local restaurants provide real Tuscan food.
