We stayed for 10 nights in B&B Molino di Foci and had a truly wonderful stay. For once the beautiful pictures and wonderful reviews turned out to be completely true. The B&B is a renovated old watermill that provides all comfort (there are an equal amount of modern rooms with walk in shower etc, and Tuscan style rooms, if you...

We had a lovely stay here, the property was very well kept and the views gorgeous. We especially enjoyed having breakfast on their patio every morning, overlooking the beautiful grounds. Both of the owners were very sweet and friendly, as well as the rest of the staff. They allowed us to relax by the pool the rest of the day...

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.

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
