Molino di Foci is in a perfect place, has an very very nice swimming pool but when we stayed in Molino di Foci the wheater wasn't good so we didn't have the change to enjoy the pool. The rooms are in Tuscan style but a little oldfashioned as far as our taste concerned. It is not a place to stay... More

For those of you planning a stay in San Gimignano or reading the reviews on Molino di Foci, my fiancé Cathy and I would ask that you please “consider the source” when reading the options from those in our neighboring state California. With that said, the Molino di Foci is, without a doubt, a piece of heaven in one of... More

I was expecting a "quiet place, far from the nearest road with views of the countryside," as described by other reviewers. The nearest road was just outside our window. It is a dirt road that leads to the molino, and also to some other place further down the road. The problem is that since there is no A/C, we had... More

We spent 5 nights at the Molino di Foci in June, aftering finding it on the internet. It's perfectly situated just outside San Gimignano, making it ideal for vising Florence, Siena etc. The pool and gardens were lovely, with a pretty raised terrace where breakfasts and dinners/snacks were served. Our room was fairly spacious, although a little dark (but great... More

My husband and I loved this perfect romantic getaway. Molino di Foci is peaceful and beautiful. Luca (the owner) was extremely helpful in every way. The breafast was delicious and the staff very friendly. We wish we could stay there longer.

Trip advisor does it again! We have just spent 6 nights at the end of September at Molino di Foci. The property is every bit as attractive as their website presents but what the website cannot show is the level of service provided by the owners and staff - polite, attentive and eager to please at all times but without...

A historic mill, creatively and beautifully converted into a discreet little hotel with terrace, garden and pool. A wonderful place offering peace and tranquility. Very friendly and cosy - feels more like home than hotel. The hosts did everything to make our stay very special.

The Molino di Foci has to be the very best B&B in Tuscany! We were unsure what to expect of Tuscan bed and breakfast accommodation (in the UK it can be a bit questionable at times!), but we discovered a real gem here. Just a short car journey away from the beautiful San Gimignano, we found Molino to be an... More

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
