Located in the heart of Tuscany, Il Granaio (the Granary) is a recently restored, 230 year old farmhouse and a large guesthouse located on the ancient Casadorna Estate. The farmhouse was carefully restored using materials original to the structure where possible including chestnut beams and 230 year-old terracotta floor tiles. The interior walls are a combination of stone and plaster and hand-painted with warm Tuscan colors. The furnishings are a mix of Tuscan antiques, and more contemporary pieces from Caporali and Dema. Busatti linens and hand towels complete the Tuscan ambiance.

In addition to the home?s original wood-fired stone baking oven (perfect for pizza), the restoration includes a chef?s kitchen complete with professional appliances, cherry wood cabinets, stainless steel and cararra marble countertops, and a loggia for al fresco dining.
