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.

This hotel is located in a renovated water mill outside of San Gimignano. The property is very peaceful and rather quiet although you will need to drive to get anywhere (including restaurants and sights in San Gimignano). The rooms were adequately furnished and modern. The...More

What a pleasant surprise ... after traveling down a very long road, through an area that was extremely remote, we came upon this lovely historic Monastery. The service, the accommodations and the food were amazing ... it was a lovely trip!

This hotel is simply beautiful and the staff are extremely attentive. We felt extremely comfortable there and wanted to stay longer. Luca was outstanding and had great recommendations. The pool and garden area are stunning and the rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is also great.
