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.

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

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

Tuscany is a great place to hang out if you are a wine lover and a traveler looking for something authentic. La Fornace is quite close to San Gimignano aprox. two km. and is situated in a fairly secluded beautiful area. Cristiano Boldrini the caretaker is kind and always helpful and supplies the best espresso and breakfast I have ever... More

We spent a couple of days in this typical tuscan house, Nice views. Quite quiet place, owners are a very kind young couple. Not far from S.Gimignano, there is a nearby trattoria where it is possible to have dinner

We stayed already for the third time in this lovely small hotel. It provides very quiet and friendly atmosphere, breakfasts with local products, very nice swimming pool and spacy appartments. It is surrounded by vineyards and provides excellent view of San Gimignano panorama. There is a beautiful garden restaurant within 300m. We fully recommend it.

The old farmhouse is at 2.5km from San Gimignano. First of all, you need a car in order to arrive here and to visit the area. On the website of the B&B you have a very good map on how to reach the place. It is situated on a hill in an area full of olive trees and vineyards. Christiano,... More
