“A most delicious meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

We had the good fortune of having a delicious lunch with friends at Fattoria San Donato. Some of the best tasting food we experienced and great wines too. The scenery is picturesque, the hosts are very friendly and helpful. We plan to go back for sure

WOW! We came here for a wine tasting and lunch and had one of the best days of our whole 3.5 week trip in Italy. The food was absolutely amazing, the wine delicious and most of all the service was so friendly and welcoming. We were travelling without a car and were even helped with a taxi waiting for us when we got off the bus at San Gimignano. We hope one day we can come back again and we will definitely recommend your restaurant to others. Thank you!

Came here on a 'boys walking weekend' and found the apartments spacious, the owners very helpful, and the food plentiful, especially the evening meals. Always someone there to tempt you to try one of the 'home-made' wines. A short distance away from San Gimignano but owners arranged a good value taxi for us and recommended a great restaurant in which to eat.

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversay by hiking in Tuscany (Lonely Planet Medieval Hills trek) and we spent one night in an apartment here. It spacious with a lovely view of the countryside. It had a range and small refrigerator and there is a laundry facility on site. It even had a fireplace! Our hosts were especially helpful and welcoming, too. When we come back, it will be for a longer stay :o)

If you want to experience living in the country as guests of a lovely Italian family this is the place for you. The warmth of the hospitality is beyond words. Having meals with the parents and children and guests in the evening is a special treat. If you haven't sampled grappa after dinner now is your chance. Our room was spacious and comfortable and took you back to what living in the Italian countryside must be like. A new and unique experience for us. We loved this place.

My wife and I were on a 26th wedding anniversary trip through Europe during the last two weeks of October, 2012 and the middle of the trip involved three nights with the Fenzis at Fattoria San Donato. We arrived in the early evening with no real idea for dinner and although Umberto and Federica were putting on a pre-arranged meal for friends and family they invited and included us in on this wonderful feast. We were the only non-native Italian speakers in the room. This story exemplifies the care, comfort and welcoming environment of this "agriturismo" accommodation. Throughout our stay, directions, help, recommendations were all provided with great patience and each tip was better than the last! When we left for our next stop (Venice) Umberto was helping a group of four women deal with the loss of a wallet in Florence by one member of their party.

The room was very nice and had all the comforts any casual traveler would require. If you are looking for Mandarin Oriental, you will be disappointed! The daily breakfast was wonderful and generous. Federica's mother was in town and she made me great fresh scrambled eggs even though neither of us communicated in the other's language!

We purchased plenty of their home grown products and the wine is terrific, as good as any of the other producers we visited in Tuscany and better priced.

I cannot recommend a stay here more highly!! You will feel like you have REALLY visited Italy!

Lovely traditional atmosphere, and directly opposite is a huge nature reserve where the family had a great time going along the path to the Castelvecchio. Good views, delicious food and wine, and a great location for exploring Florence and Sienna. Very helpful directions and suggestions of activities from the hosts too. The friendly dog and table football kept the children entertained for the holiday. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
