Molino di Foci is in a perfect place, has an very very nice swimming pool but when we stayed in Molino di Foci the wheater wasn't good so we didn't have the change to enjoy the pool. The rooms are in Tuscan style but a little oldfashioned as far as our taste concerned. It is not a place to stay many hours at your room. Although it was very clean, some things were a old: the heathing didn't work and we didn't like the bed. Service is very good, even snacks until late in the evening (some fresh, some frozen). We also stayed in other hotels during our trip and were a little disappointed about Molino di Foci. I choose Molino di Foci because of the recommendations but wouldn't go there for an second time although the hotel it is above avarage.
