Every aspect of our stay in this house was fine- large well-furnished, well-lit rooms and very welcoming hosts. Luggage racks would have been helpful but they seem to be very rare in Italy. It was great experience to stand amid vineyards seeing San Gimignano in the distance. The breakfast buffet was very complete. A short walk up the country lane... More

We enjoyed our stay. San Gimingnano was our favorite town in Tuscany so it was a real treat to be so close by. The farm house is charming and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful! My son is gluten free and they purchased gluten free foods for breakfast. Unfortunately, the wifi was not working during our... More

Our room, Smeralda, was clean, very spacious and had a beautiful view of San Gimignano from one of the windows. The pool was very clean and a refreshing finish to our long days biking... More

The Staff and Owner were all so friendly and helpful. We had 4 people so we opted to rent the apartment. It had 2 bedrooms and 2... More

Our family of 4 stayed at this quiet bed and breakfast in the Apartment Corbezzolo. Cristiano, the owner, was an amazing host and always helpful and smiling. His staff was equally friendly and helpful during our stay. The location of the apartment is only a short drive to San Gimignano but it was nice to be away from the crowds... More

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.
