San Donato is a farmhouse set in a tiny medieval village amidst the green hills of San Gimignano in Tuscany, offering charming panoramic views of the unique town and countryside.
The Fenzi family, who have owned the farm since 1932 always provide a warm welcome and are happy to assist with your special day. Federica used to be a wedding coordinator herself and can provide recommendations for local suppliers.
San Donato is a working farm which produces wine, oil and cereals and the friendly owners are renowned for offering guests local produce and organising delicious dinners with typical Tuscan food.
We think this is an outstanding venue offering a magical Tuscan experience, which will be remembered for many years to come.
