Fattoria di Fugnano is a farm, beautiful located in the hills of San Gimignano. The apartments are in the middle of the olive groves and vineyards with the towers of San Gimignano in sight. The town itself is 10 minutes away (with the car). The service was top and the staff very warm. We didn't meet the owner, but Jacob was very welcoming, helpful and attentive. The apartments are spacious and quiet, with a nice swimmingpool at a few meters. The wifi-connection is not very good, but we never missed it. The offered wine tasting is a very nice addition. I would recommend this accommodation to everyone.
My husband and I spent 4 very relaxing days at Laura's vineyard in May.
We were welcomed warmly by Jacob with a glass of the vineyard's Ballun (sparkling wine). and then shown to our accommodation higher up the slopes, where there was a pool and the majority of the units. We stayed in an older converted apartment, which was very spacious with eating/dining/kitchen area, separate bathroom and bedroom. The bed had a comfy memory foam mattress and the linens were immaculate, as was the apartment. Outside the view from our terrace over San Gimignano was spectacular. We were invited to an informative and friendly wine tasting with Jacob, and every morning fresh croissants were delivered to our terrace (without asking for them!) - a lovely touch. We would highly recommend Laura's Vineyard as a base for exploring the Chianti region. San Gimignano is a beautiful hilltop Tuscan town with many excellent restaurants and the vineyard is situated a few minutes outside by car.
This place, also known as “Laura’s Farm”, is one of the loveliest hotels we ever stayed at, situated in the midst of olive groves and vineyards with the towers of San Gimignano clearly visible over the hills. The town itself is a 10 minute drive away. Laura is a generous, welcoming and helpful hostess. Our apartment was spacious and quiet, a sort walk from the pool. My only criticisms are that there are no screens on the windows and that the last kilometer of the approach is over a gravel road I would not like to drive on at night. Otherwise, the place is perfect and I would heartily recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Laura, Thank you so much for the wonderful memories! We truly enjoyed the delicious lunch and your amazing wines however the best part of our day was meeting you! You were just delightful and we loved hearing about your grandmother and the family history. We anxiously await the case of wine and olive oil we ordered so that we can share with our friends here in Texas! We regret that we were on a cruise and could not stay longer but hope to return to your beautiful vineyard and spend more time. Congratulations on your success and we do hope to see you in Texas next time you travel. (Hugs to you and Lello) Grazie Millie
Fattoria di Fugnano is a hidden gem--so much that I hesitate to write this review :)
Everything from the breathtaking views, relaxing by the pool, and wine tastings...it's the perfect place to soak in the perfect Tuscan experience. The best part, our gracious hosts who are wonderful ambassadors for the region. I can't wait to go back!
