We stayed here for 4 days as a base in Tuscany. For that purpose, it was great. San Gimignano gets EXTREMELY busy during the day with loads of tour buses. By venturing out during the day, we then returned to San Gimignano for supper and evening walks in relative peace and quiet after the throngs of people left (even though... More

Everything was perfect for our family's stay at this beautiful B and B. From Tamara's friendly welcome, to Cristiano's cappuccinos, to Ambra's helpful hints, we could not recommend this place more highly. The breakfast was enough to keep us going for long wanders through Tuscany and like others, the pool awaited at the end of those days. Although some travel... More

My husband and I stayed at La Fornace Di Racciano for 3 nights during our 5 week stint in Italy and wished we had been able to stay longer! Our host Cristiano was so welcoming and even picked us up in San Gimigiano because we were travelling from Florence on the bus! We were greeted on arrival by the beautiful... More

Stayed in this wonderful bed and breakfast for a week while visiting Tuscany. The breakfast and the accommodations are truly 5 star. Loved coming back to La Fornace after a long day of sightseeing to a wonderful pool while being served by the owner Cristiano local wines and cheeses. A real slice of heaven. If you're looking for a place... More

We are a young married couple that recently got back from an amazing stay at La Fornace Di Racciano. This quiet and spacious farmhouse sits on a hill overlooking the landscapes of Tuscany and the hill town of San Gimignano. The hosts are the most gracious that we have experienced at any place that we have ever stayed. Our apartment... More

stayed here for a week last summer as part of a tour of Tuscany and would have loved to have stayed longer. The accommodation is spotless and there always seemed to be cleaning going on. Breakfast is excellent with coffees loving prepared by the owner. Pool is small but clean and the views are to die for you feel you... More

This is a typical tuscan farmhouse, although it is just a B&B today (not agriturismo). We stayed in the apartment which was in some disrepair. There were windows missing screens or screens that had big holes in them. There was a dishwasher but it did not work which the manager seemed to be aware of already, which isn't that big... More
