This spectacular couple is saving a village one ancient brick at a time. It is an extraordinary experience to stay in this lovely place.

We arrived there not very happy (due to a car accident we had just a few kilometers before arriving) but our host (Federica) was very helpful and supportive to us. She is a wonderful host, you can be sure of that.
The place itself is very rustic and full of charm. We had a lovely one bedroom apartment with great view over the heels. As expected, the furniture in the apartment is old and well fit in the scenery (so don't expect luxury).
I loved the pool, it is more than a pleasure during the hot months (we stayed there for 6 nights in the last week of June).
They sell lot of products they made there at the farm, the wine is great of course, but the olive oil and sun dried tomatoes really touched my heard. You should try them.
As the guest before me mentioned, sometime they organize dinners you're not allowed to miss, real international "conventions" (so now I take the opportunity to say hello to the lovely family from Pittsburgh and to all the other quest that were at the dinner with us that evening).
The location of the farm is very good, it is close to San Gimignano (so you can easily spend some evenings there) and also from there we visited Chianti area (don't miss Montefioralle, close to Greve), Siena and Monteriggioni.
Me and my wife also had some romantic dinners (using local products and wine) under the moon light in different corners of the farm (pool side is one of the best), the fresh air during the evening/night is a treasure itself.
Have fun!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view over the heals may be a bit noisy during the night (if you sleep with the open win...

We were brought here by our driver from Your Tour in Italy for a wine tasting. The owner was very accommodating, giving us a tour of their wine cellar and introduction to their wine-making techniques.

Lunch was served along with the wine tasting, very rustic and authentic, in a wonderful room upstairs.

All in all, the atmosphere and hospitality was a great combination!

We stayed for only two nights in June 2012, but wish we could have stayed longer. The place is lovely - rustic, but also clean and well-kept. It is fantastic for kids - good-sized pool, ping-pong table, foosball table, cats and dogs.... We had a two-bedroom apartment with two baths plus a living room/kitchen with fireplace. This was perfect for the five of us. There is no air conditioning, but, even on very hot days, we were comfortable and able to sleep. Federica welcomed us warmly and could not possibly have been any more helpful. She even put us in touch with a tourguide friend in Rome who found us a great hotel there! The dinner was a real highlight. It was a feast, also for the eyes, served buffet-style. That was perfect, as everybody, even the kids, found several things they liked. They used much of their own produce and olive oil, and of course their own wine. We had six nationalities at dinner the night we ate there, and the conversations were fabulously interesting. Breakfast was also excellent, including the coffee and homemade preserves. We used this as our base for exploring Pisa, Lucca, and Siena, and headed from there to Rome. Great facilities, location, food, and staff. We really hope to come back again!

We've been there back in 2006 and stay for 2 days. Amazing owner and staff! Great food and drinks on site. Not cheap but it worth it!

I spend 2 nites with friend here during my trip in Italy. It is a terribly wise choice to stay here since I believe it a truly Tuscany style place to enjoy the surroudings. Specially thanks to the managers and staff, they are all helpful by offering us a free drive to the small towns nearby to catch up the bus. Love the view and wine, hope to bring all of them back to China.

we just return from a fantastic trip to toscany.
we stayed in Fattoria San Donato for 2 nights. wish we could stay here more!
i saw pictures of the place before and it looks beautifull. but when we arrived it was much much nicer than what we've seen and imagined. Umberto and Frederica are such great people. they helped us decide where to go and what to see and where to eat. the room was excelent,and the garden is breathtaking, the breakfast was great, so nice seating in the garden , so pastoralic.
the price is reasonable, and the place is 5-10 minutes drive from san gimignano.
it was like a piece of heaven in toscany!
if you look for a nice place near san giminiano - this is it!
