My best friend and I stayed here for three nights while we were in Tuscany. We arrived quite late and ended up wandering about for a bit until some other guests told us just to ring the bell outside reception. We weren't able to eat on the premises as we weren't there on the Thursday when they had dinner organised... More

if i could rate this place a 10 i would. What an experience.! This farm was built in the years around 1000AC and has been restored perfectly. It is a working wine and organic vegetable farm. The small tour group we were with even booked cooking classes for us, which we did with Federicia, who is one of the owners.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fattoria San Donato. This was a very rich experience for our family. The suite of rooms was very spacious, and we really enjoyed the fireplace (wood was provided to build a fire), the rough-hewn beams in the vaulted ceilings, and other ancient trappings in the rustic rooms. This facility is a renovated 900 year... More

We booked Fatorria San Donato the night before we arrived and in a hurry. After a long day of walking through several hilltop villages, we were exhausted. As we drove down the road to the Fattoria we were all amazed at what we saw. The place was so beautiful, and the old buildings that are amazing. We walked into the... More

This charming, quaint Fattoria is situated in the picturesque hamlet of San Donato. If you are looking for an authentic, rustic Tuscan ambiance with delicious local food and friendly hospitality, you won't want to miss the Fattoria San Donato. We felt like we'd travelled back in time - all the wonderfully maintained stone buildings, the ancient farming tools... and we... More

Hosts Federica and Umberto were very accommodating, sharing history and wine from San Donato. Loved our 2 bedroom clean and quiet apartment that we shared with friends and loved the wine... More

We were 2 couples travelling to Italy and Tuscany for the first time. So glad we found this place! If you are looking for 5 star pampering, maybe not the place for you, however, if you want a quiet, cozy, clean and authentic place to experience, this is it. We shared the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment in a building 700?... More

5 of us hired a driver and drove through the Tuscan countryside and arrived at Fattoria San Donato for lunch. We were seated in part of the original medieval section of the farmhouse. The host had set up a fantastic lunch consisting of local meats, olives, pasta, cheeses and delicious wine. After lunch we were shown the wine making area... More

This is the real deal. We arrived tired and buzzing from our long flight and hectic Washington, DC lifestyle and within hours the stress melted away. San Donato is a beautiful place with stunning views of acres of green farmland, historic stone buildings and luscious flowers. It invites you to walk the property and take in all the sites and...
