Fattoria San Donato - San Gimignano

Localita San Donato 6 - San Gimignano

Price starting from 80.00
The property Fattoria San Donato is located in a small medieval town, surrounded by the green hills of San Gimignano.

The little village, built on the ancient via Francigena around a petite Romanic church, has maintained its original structure: the main villa with its age-old parkland, the cropper houses, and the beautiful tower, now a common room at guests' disposal.

Guests will have the opportunity to sample local wine and oil products and relax in the park, or discover the surroundings on foot, mountain bike, or horse.

Moreover, the property offers an Internet point, a meeting room for 70 people, large parking area, and restaurant. Wireless Internet access is provided free of charge for guests, in public areas of the hotel.

Due to its strategic position in the heart on Tuscany, 4 kilometers from San Gimignano, 15 kilometers from Volterra, 35 kilometers from Siena, 55 kilometers from Florence, and 60 kilometers from Pisa, the property is the ideal place for visiting the Tuscan art cities.

Dogs and cats are welcome in the hotel.

Our stay at Fattoria San Donato was nothing short of amazing. We were looking for a Tuscan village type of experience and we got it. Two senior adults and two young adults were equally impressed by this place. Our two-bedroom suite with two baths and living room/kitchen combo was rustic with modern conveniences. The views of the Tuscan countryside are phenomenal in all directions. The communal buffet-style dinner we enjoyed with other guests and owners Federica and Umberto was fantastic. Fresh ingredients right from the farm, amazing pasta and meat dishes washed down with Vernaccia (white) and Chianti (red) wine produced on the farm as well. Breakfast was served each morning with cheer either indoors in a stone vaulted room or outside on a stone wall enclosed courtyard. The staff made you feel at home and encouraged you to linger. Imagine breakfast service until 11 a.m.! This place is ideal for people who want to stay for 3 or more days. You can take long walks in the countryside, lounge by the crystal clear pool, go for wine tastings in the reception area, play ping-pong or foosball at any time, or go horseback riding a mere 1 kilometer away. We even picked and ate ripe apricots right from the trees surrounding the swimming pool. The Fattoria is only a 10 minute drive from San Gimignano, making it a great alternative to hotels in that busy town. Federica is a pro at suggesting nearby excursions while Umberto will tell you where to find the best restaurants and gelato (ice cream) vendors. This place is almost indescribably wonderful. We're going back the first chance we get.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and it was exactly as expected. Be prepared to make your own bed and hang up towels. This is NOT an American hotel, it's a Tuscan farmhouse. Rooms are not changed daily. The family were friendly and helpful, the food was good Tuscan fare and their wines are great. Good central location for driving around the Tuscan countryside. We spent so much time out there wasn't a day spare to enjoy lying by the pool, but that was our mistake. Next time I'd try to stay longer and soak up the local ambience more.

Best value hotel we had in 23 days in Europe, magnificent setting in Tuscany country side, fabulous breakfast in wine cellar. Ask for `san gimignano room upstair, with adjacent personal kitchen and fireplace. Personnel extremely helpful and polite.

Nous pensions arriver dans un endroit sympathique, nous sommes arrivés dans un endroit magique, à deux pas de San Gimignano. Quand je montre les photos de notre voyage en italie, c'est par celles là que je commence. Tout est beau, tout est simple, l'accueil est très bon, du matin jusqu'au soir. On y serait bien restés plus longtemps.
