Nice location in attractive open countryside a few minutes drive from San Giminiano. Very welcoming and warm-hearted staff. A pleasure to stay here.

The kids play area was very tired, id update it or remove it.
Superb views back to SG across olive groves and vines. Just the right distance out of town. Breakfast was excellent, staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We were there in October so didn't use the pool facilities, they looked great.

Not a lot, we loved our stay at la fornace and look forward to our return!
Great location for touring around tuscany, pretty central to all the major towns and cities. San gimignano is gorgeous, with great views. La fornace was excellent for us as a family with a 3 month old baby. We stayed in appt. "pino" which was shaded and cool for the baby, and had adequate cooking facilities for the grown ups. Staff were lovely, and very friendly. We will definitely be back!

Everything was excellent. From our room we could see San Gigniamo. The property was clean and beautiful. For the money, it was amazing.

The wall is very thin, poor sound insulation. Very easy to hear next door coughing.
Very beautiful place, can see San Gimignano when having breakfast in dinning room. With swimming pool, wonderful place for family or couple. Good breakfast, host made really nice and tasty coffee.

The service was exellent. Cristiano Boldrini and his familiy made me and all other guest really feel welcomed at their lovely place. They great every guest personally, remember their names, and where always smiling, happy, and ready to do everything possible to make their guest feel welcome. The breakfast was excellent, with fresh local ham, cheses, fresh foccaccia, olive oil, so that we Norwegians who dont eat cake for breakfast also could find something good to eat. The swimmingpool was clean - and the invirment was lovely. The Fornacia is a good place for trips in Toscana, close to San Gimignano, Siena, Firenze and Volterra . Also a local restaurant on top of the hill, 4-5 minutes walking - served lovely lunch & dinner inside and outside, so that you could enjoy a glass of wine, and dont have to go anywhere with the car. There is also flats to rent if you want to cook dinner yourself.

Great service and fantastic breakfast.

You can hear the noise of water in the canalization and water pipes.
Good location, near to San Gimignano; 30 min. of walking. Nice building with pool and great breakfast.

The bathroom was damp and mouldy.
The property was such a surprise. It was even better than portrayed on the website. We had the ground floor apartment which was larger than we expected and very private,with a lovely outlook of the vineyard. San Gimignano could be seen in the distance from the front of the property. We also loved the fact that you could walk to a homely restaurant just up the road.

Everything is good! The room, the pool, the friendly people, and the location! Definitely the best choice to live around San Gimignano!

Could hear other guests in their rooms very clearly. Wi-Fi only allowed one of us to be signed into a login at a time. Made it difficult to route Google maps and access other websites.
La Fornace was in a great location with incredibly beautiful views! It was a short drive into San Gimignano and close enough to Sienna & Pisa for day trips. All staff was very accommodating and helpful. Provided a map of where to park in San Gimignano, assisted with directions to neighboring vineyards, and were available throughout the day. We had especially good service at breakfast every morning! Provided as many espresso drinks as you would like, homemade deserts, and a wide selection of locale breads and meats. Good to note that La Fornace is within walking distance of a restaurant servicing authentic Tuscan foods, as well. Also, felt safe the whole stay. Would stay again! :)

a bit too far from San Gimignano for walk
Staff was extremely friendly. Very tasty breakfast (local food and cakes, real italian coffee). Beatiful view

Very charming place in the Tuscani. The people in charge of the hostel is very charming and kind. The rooms are so quiet. The B&B is allocated in a quiet place of the country. Recommended 100%

Room could be more italian style.
Staff - very polite and friendly. Breakfast - perfect for each one who appreciates good italian food. Location - close to San Gimignano. Pool, the view - everything was great.

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 was very clean, comfortable, and offered a kitchen to cook any local foods that we were interested in. One of our favorite experiences there was the breakfast consisting of meats, cheeses, pastries, and much more all from the area of San Gimignano. The olive oil was so fresh that we couldn't get enough of it along with the exceptional cappuccinos offered to us both in the mornings and evenings. The farmhouse is situated in a perfect location to see all of Tuscany. We travel modestly and the price to stay there is so affordable! We felt right at home and will definitely be back someday soon. We highly recommend this location.
