Heidi & Luca are very nice couple that welcomes you on arrival at any time! The rooms are very clean & comfortable. The view around the gardens is charming. Don't forget to ask about the history of the place. Very recommended place! Thanks Heidi & Luca!

We received great service from the B&B staff and were even given the choice to choose between two different rooms to stay in which was great! The room we choose was stylishly furnished and very comfortable,...

...to Luca and Heidi for creating a most wonderful and relaxing vacation spot in the heart of Tuscany. We have spent a week there (during late September) in each of the last 6 out 7 years - the only reason we missed one is because we tried to book too late and they could not fit us in..!

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. I do not think I've ever eaten so well...

We were tired and hungry and lost after a day in our Fiat touring Tuscany in the rain. We arrived at the south gate of San Gimignano and found a shop with owners who called Luca at Molino di Foci for us. Luca got on the phone, assured us that our tears were not necessary, told us where to eat...

A great beautiful hotel just 5 minutes away from San Gemignano. The hospitality is worth mentioning, a really good atmosphere! A money worthy, Friday dinner with great food.

This is a perfect place to stay for either a short or longer period. Very welcoming, lovely atmosphere and wonderful Tuscan food offered 3 evenings a week. Very close to San gimignano city walls and a lovely quiet location. Grounds and swimming pool are beautiful and staff extremely helpful. Very highly recommended and would definitely return.

We did stay here for the second time, and there is now indeed a new building with 8 new rooms added this winter. The integration is really perfect, very nice, and the rooms are very beautifull.

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
