Let me start with saying the of all Tuscany I would always choose to stay close to San Gimignano and travel Tuscany with a car from there as a home base. SG is by far the most quaint with more to do than any of the small villages we visited during our three days in Tuscany. I will definitely go... More

Wa had a great stay at Molino Di Foci. Very friendly staff, willing to give a good service 24/7! For example, on our first day there they surprised us with a battle of prosecco to celebrate our honey moon properly. The Tuscan food, offered 3 evenings a week, is really great. I do not think I've ever eaten so well... More

We were tired and hungry and lost after a day in our Fiat touring Tuscany in the rain. We arrived at the south gate of San Gimignano and found a shop with owners who called Luca at Molino di Foci for us. Luca got on the phone, assured us that our tears were not necessary, told us where to eat... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Molino di Foci is an old watermill dating back to the 14th century. After being abandoned for over 40 years it has been carefully restored into a characteristic small hotel, ready to offer guests a warm welcome to the fascinating tuscan countryside. Restoration work has been sympathetically carried out over a number of years using materials and colours typical of Tuscany. As a result, Molino di Foci now offers its' guests the possibility to clearly envisage the life and history of the old watermill while enjoying any modern comforts, amid a wonderful setting surrounded by fields of wheat and spectacular sunflowers. The English speaking owners have a long experience in first class hotellerie and with the restoration they have realized their big dream of their own hotel. Situated on the via Francigena, which originally lead pilgrims from Canterbury to Rome, the Molino di Foci is an historic building protected by the Belle Arti. The Molino di Foci is only 4 kms away from the historic medieval centre of San Gimignano and ideally located for visiting both Siena and Volterra which both lie just 30 kms away, distance to Florence is 45 kms and Pisa airport 80 kms. ... more   less
