La Fornace di Racciano is a lovely Bed&Breakfast in Tuscany in a short distance (2,8 Km) from the historical centre of medieval San Gimignano (Siena). It consists of a typical Tuscan country house surrounded by a large flowery garden. In the past "La Fornace di Racciano" was a furnace that produced lovely terracotta pottery using locally dug clay. Today, the building has been carefully renovated to maintain the typical features of the past, besides the modern comforts of nowadays. La Fornace di Racciano consists of nine comfortable rooms and two apartments.

We stayed at La Fornace di Racciano for three nights. Our room was lovely, with a balcony and a table where we could drink a glass of wine at sunset. The pool was also very nice and with an amazing view. The place is really close to San Gimignano, and the family who owns the place is extremely kind and ready to give suggestions. They also offer a nice breakfast and aperitivo.

Good location, pretty place with surrounding vineyard & olive groves, comfortable room, owners & staff were courteous, friendly, & helpful with suggestions & advice. Everyone was approachable & easy to speak with. Although there are no staff on the premises after 2000, the owners live down the road & are a phone call away. The only thing was the bathroom door did not stay closed properly & needed to be fixed, but, we were able to use the a small wooden stool to keep it closed so it was not an issue. Breakfast was fresh, sweet, & delicious: local fruits, meats, & cheeses. The owners bake & serve different delicous cakes daily. The breakfast, coffee, cappuccino, & espresso were the best we had during our entire Italy stay❣ The owners are coffee experts & clean their machine between each cup brewed. They are flavorful & smooth tasting. You can taste the quality & difference. There was a pool we did not have time to enjoy but it looked clean & well maintained. Parking was free. There is a pizza place just down the road (maybe 5 minutes walk). My only regret was we did not stay longer. I would love to stay here again.

We stayed three nights toward the end of our trip when we needed some rest and relaxation. The La Fornace was in the country surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, but had a great view of San Gimignano. The staff were exceptional in tending to our needs and questions. They even facilitated getting our parking ticket paid from Volterra. Highly recommend for someone wanting to get away from the crowds, but close enough for fun day trips.

Our room had a wonderfull view on San Giminiano. I took an early morning walk - it's just about two km by foot through the vineyards and on small roads to San Giminiano. Good breakfast, very kind hosts and a beautiful pool to refresh after an interesting day in San Giminiano.
