The hotel is in the middle of olive trees and vineyards with a beautiful view of the countryside. San Gimignano is a short but energetic walk down a path that winds between the vineyards. Rooms are basic but clean. Breakfast was delicious- croissants, cakes, hot food- everything you need to recharge before a busy day in the countryside. Staff were... More

I had a very good time there. Place, location and all staffs are superb. You can see the city of San Gimignano very clearly from here. Nice for photographers I bet. Although the hotel may be not reachable for anyone going there without car but you can get picked up by the villa as a free service. All staffs and... More

We had 8 nights here with our dog, we drove over from the UK. It's everything you need for a relaxed place to stay with friendly staff who take care of you. They made the difference. Perfect location to explore the big sights in Tuscany and then having San Gimignano on your doorstep is breathtaking. Christiano, Ambre and Tamara were... More

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.
