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!
Not a lot, we loved our stay at la fornace and look forward to our return!
Everything was excellent. From our room we could see San Gigniamo. The property was clean and beautiful. For the money, it was amazing.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff, nice location, rooms very clean, good secure parking
Pool area could be cleaner (but weather had been bad)
The location, cleanliness of the facility and room, wide variety of great food at breakfast and friendly staff!! Highly recommend!!
The internet was free but just good. It kept asking that you log back in... But overall still an excellent stay!!!
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 wall is very thin, poor sound insulation. Very easy to hear next door coughing.
Loved the building, the location, the spacious and self-contained accommodation and the pool
Nice view to San Gimigagno from the house Nice swimming-pool Large room Very friendly host who served faboulous coffees in the cosy breakfast room
The shower cabin was not tight, so water flow on the floor, but not a big problem
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.
Good location, near to San Gimignano; 30 min. of walking. Nice building with pool and great breakfast.
You can hear the noise of water in the canalization and water pipes.
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.
The bathroom was damp and mouldy.
Everything is good! The room, the pool, the friendly people, and the location! Definitely the best choice to live around San Gimignano!
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! :)
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.
Staff was extremely friendly. Very tasty breakfast (local food and cakes, real italian coffee). Beatiful view
a bit too far from San Gimignano for walk
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%
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.
Room could be more italian style.
We received a warm welcome and had a very comfortable stay. The location is quiet, with great views over to San Gimignano.
Absolutely loved the location. Amazing views and incredibly peaceful. The staff were really lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Totally recommend this place.
What's not to like ! It was all fantastic.
Clean, friendly, wonderful views. Easy to find. Everything was just what you want for a holiday!
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.
the host is very nice and friendly, and the breakfast is the best in our Italy trip. and you don`t worry the parking problem.
it is not easy to arrive if you don't have a car.
Perfect location. San Gimignano right there Christian (sp) and umbra were a delight. Heavenly...
The staff were great, as was the traditional breakfast. The apartment was roomy and the shower we had great water flow and the bed was very comfortable. The view was brilliant and location so close to San Gimignano. The building had the great old charm character and the outdoor area was fantastic.
There was no laundry, dishwasher, toaster or iron and the shower was very small and poorly designed (where a large person would not be able to get into it). Needed some kitchen utensils and in need of upgrade - very dated
Well-managed lodging with comfortable setting. Homely feeling all around. Good breakfast served in an open dining area.
Room rates are a bit on the high side.
It's a good location for touring Tuscany.
Out of all the places we have stayed in the last two weeks, this is the first place where the floor was too dirty to walk on without shoes. Also the window screens had holes which let in Mosquitos. The overall cleanliness left something to be desired. There was a layer of dust everywhere. Perhaps we have been spoiled by staying in so many immaculate places where such attention is given to every little detail. Maybe without comparisons it would have fared better!
