About Us


Originally we are from Zurich (Switzerland).
After a two year employment in Tuscany we had the dream to build up something of our own.
1987 we bought La Fornace, a former small brickyard, later a simple farmhouse abandoned for many years.
The family includes dogs, cats, two donkeys, chickens and geese. Our two children have moved out. After almost 30 years we feel deeply rooted in this wonderful region.
We both love cooking and interesting encounters with our guests from all over the world. As we live right next to you, we are reachable any time.
We are here for advices and hints for excursions and – if you need – for help with language difficulties.
