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 Ambra and seated by the pool with coffee and cake while our check in documentation was filled out. Our apartment was located in the gorgeous little Hamlet of Racciano just a short distance from the main building and a stone's throw from a lovely restaurant offering delicious local fare. Our self contained apartment was homely and had everything we could possibly need - we particularly enjoyed sitting outside with a glass of local wine and produce in the private courtyard enjoying the serenity and quaintness of our surrounds. It is possible to walk from Racciano to San Gimigiano on a back road which meanders past grape vines and farmlets ( ask Cristiano for directions) - it only takes about 45 minutes! Make sure you take the camera? On the day we departed for Rome (a Sunday - not a great day to travel on public transport!) Ambra went to great lengths to "plot" and book our travel details which was MUCH appreciated - Grazie Ambra! Can highly recommend this Tuscan experience and will certainly return when next in Italy.
