Wonderful, peaceful, relaxing stay at La Fornace. Cristiano and all the staff were fantastic hosts, always friendly, happy to help and make sure our stay was enjoyable. Idyllic location. Very clean and comfortable accommodation, really well equipped for all needs. The pool and surrounding area were also very clean and picturesque. Unforgettable stay and we will definitely be back.

Lovely surrounding - garden, olive trees. Very close to San Gimignano, but the car is necessary. Staff - very friendly and helpful, especially Christiano. WIFI - very slow. I can... More

Lovely place! Friendly, clean, calm, lovely view, nice pool, friendly and helpful staff! Really recommend it! Near San Gimignano but still very far away from the rush of other tourists. We drove to Volterra and then back to the pool, lovely!

We stayed in the apartment Corbezzolo which slept 4 and it was just what we were looking for. The young lady that checked us in was wonderful and made us feel so welcome. Looking out across the valley of grape vineyards and olive trees to San Gimignano was breathtaking. The owner was a great host and breakfast was perfect. The... More

After almost 15yrs, we went back to the most beautiful & charming hotel of S.Gimignano. Family Boldrini knows how to make yr visit to Tuscany a relaxing and comfortable experience, from the very first moment you arrive.

We loved our stay here. This wonderful B&B is in the Tuscan country side but only a few minutes from San Gimignano and central to other cities such as Lucca, Siena and Volterra. Our room was large and very clean and we had a view of San Gimignano from our widow. The staff was great and breakfast was delicious and... More
