Rent this Italian Villa & Farm for Your Next Vacation or Wedding Venue in Tuscany!

Once the community ''forno'' (oven) dating back to 1789 - Il Forno Podere Toiano - local villagers would come by from the (now abandoned) town of Toiano, 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, outdoor dining loggia, gardens & panoramic views. Very private, yet very centrally located in Tuscany. Well equipped kitchen leads out to a dining loggia with wonderful views, and steps lead down between olive trees to the villa’s private swimming pool on a sunny terrace at the foot of the garden. Amazing 360-degree views of surrounding countryside, spectacular sunsets. 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!

Located in Toiano (PI), the nearest towns are Montefoscoli, Palaia, Legoli, Peccioli and not too far away are Pontedera, San Gimignano, Volterra.

About Alejandro Moreno S.

AGRITURISMO Luna Toscana is a family-owned farm. Alejandro runs things with help from the family. Prior, the property was run as a vacation rental known as ''Villa Toiano''. We speak English, Spanish, French & Italian. We are passionate about good food, good wine, good music, good times & great traveling experiences. We look forward to the privilege of welcoming & helping orient you for your optimal, desired Tuscan vacation experience.

Alejandro Moreno S. purchased this villa in 2015

Why Alejandro Moreno S. chose Palaia

We wanted to find a piece of land in Tuscany with great views of rolling hills, ideally with an olive tree orchard and maybe some vineyards, a swimming pool, and a great, spacious, well designed farmhouse that would allow for multi-generational living and was perfectly situated to enjoy the sunsets and face the best direction for planting vineyards. That is this property.

What makes this villa unique

The views, the sunsets, hiking and biking trails outside your door, combined with the pool, olive tree orchards and extra land to roam, while just about smack dab center to all of Tuscany and in the heart of truffle country, it was hard to ask for more.

Experiencing the Tuscan Lifestyle -

Tuscany is a large and very diverse region - beautiful rolling countryside with globally renowned food, pristine beaches with clear water and boating, some of the most revered art in the world, mountains to climb or ski, thermal spa towns, famous opera singing, Volterra the home of Twilight films, medieval hilltop towns and historic renaissance cities and even a park dedicated to Pinocchio! In Valdera none of this is more than an hour away. So if it's seeing the famous sites you've always heard about or living the simple pleasures of a Tuscan life, Villa Luna Toscana in Toiano Palaia can offer you a beautiful and comfortable home base to experience it all.

When to visit Tuscany:

Many people think of Tuscany as a place simply for warm weather to visit in the summertime. What many people don't realize is that there is always a good time to visit - Sagra (food festivals) throughout the year, music festivals, sightseeing, wine tasting, visits to farms and vineyards, and even Pinocchio's house are all within 45 minutes from Toiano.

Jan/Feb: Carnevale di Viareggio, Florence Chocolate Festival

March/April: Black Truffle Festival Certaldo, Scoppio del Carro in Florence, Easter celebrations throughout

May/June: Sagre (food fairs) throughout Tuscany, e.g., Cherry Fair in Pisa, Picci Sagra in Pontassieve; plus festivals like Antico Calcio in Florence
