A great place! The breakfast-room had a great view over San Gimignano. The pool was nice, though very cold. The sunbeds had comfortable cushions. The owner and hosts were very friendly. San Gimignano is great to visit. Recommended: Diner at Tratorria Chiribiri in San Gimignano, especially the cheesecake with nutella was delicious! The apartment was a bit noisy in the...

I've traveled extensively in Tuscany and I've never found a more inviting, charming and magical little hotel than Fornace. The location, the traditional Tuscan farmhouse style and the wonderful staff make this a memorable and wonderful experience. Cristiano, Ambra and the others are friendly, efficient and fun. It's simply one of the best in my estimation.

We only stayed the one night, which was a shame as the setting is lovely and the pool looked very inviting. Our room was very comfrotable, breakfast plentiful, and the staff helpful. Our room had views across to Gimignano which was a bonus. The restaurant just up the road is terrific - typical Italian - doing much more than pizza...

We stayed for 3 nights and it was quite a pleasant agritourismo. The rooms were smaller than expected ; I was there with my wife & young kid and could have done with a little more space. But the breakfast was very good and fresh. The location is a short drive from San Gimignano. Overall quite decent

A perfect place to relax. Near to San Gimignano! The towers of San Gimignano rise up like a medieval Manhattan. Very friendly service team. Hope we visit it again 🙂 Good breakfast with homemade cakes variations. With wlan in the rooms and outside.
