We staid here one week with our 4 children. The rooms were nice and clean, and rather comfortable. We had also the rooms at the street side (see other review), and this is not the best but really not a problem. Only it was rather hot without airconditioning, the only disconvenient, but really worthwile. The location is really fantastic, Firenze and Siena and Pisa and many others are easy to reach. Luca and Heidi take really care of you, and make reservations in local nice restaurants. The meals in the hotel (three times a week) were really perfect. The children were also very welcome here, the pool very nice and quiet. San Gimignano is at 2 minutes driving, and every evening after "visiting" it's like coming home here. Perhaps ask a room at the poolside. Next year there will be 6 rooms more, let's hope the atmosphere stays the same as now... We will certainly return !
- 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
