  • we do not want to rent a you provide tour information....drivers for the day, etc.

    Hello, we have contacts for tours but from our location you really need a car. We are located 5kms to the nearest shop and there are no public tranports from our location. Just to give you an idea of a taxi ride to town: 30Euros single journey and taxis in the countryside are hardly available. Thanks Serena

Host Information

Host review score 9.6

This is an ancient fortress that dates back to the 10th Century, restored and refurbished into an elegant country resort. It is located on top of a hill overlooking the Val d’Elsa and San Gimignano: and with its stunning views reveals itself in a landscape of spectacular beauty. Castello di Fulignano is also set along one of the tracks of “Via Francigena”, the ancient pilgrim road linking the North of Europe with Rome. In its century long history, strictly connected to the medieval power of San Gimignano, the castle’s rooms hosted feudatories, nobles and monks. After three years of painstaking restoration works, this beautiful mansion was brought back to its genuine magnificence, presently welcoming those who love to discover the fascination of the past mingled with the pleasure of a holiday in one of the best places of Tuscany.

We care about our guests and strive to provide a memorable holiday at our property.

Centrally located to reach in 30 minutes: Florence, Siena, Volterra, Pisa and the Chianti villages (Greve, Radda, Castellina). San Giminano is only 15 minutes away and the nearest town with a large selection of shops is just 7 minutes away. The 360 degrees views over the Valdelsa valley, one of the most picturesque in Tuscany is there for you to enjoy. Special activities in the area that we can book for you on request are: horse back outings in the countryside, balloon flight over the Chianti, wine and olive oil tasting, golf, private guided tours and many more...
