We were welcomed by the owner and painter Roberto Viani, a great host, that gave us countless useful tips for our visit. The rooms are very elegant and comfortable, the beds are gorgeous, we slept wonderfully. The location...

My husband and I stayed in San Gimignano for three nights and were lucky enough to discover Locanda Viani on Trip Advisor. As we first rolled up to the B&B, I was instantly thrilled to discover how peaceful and quiet the location is. We were immediately greeted by the adorable Cesare (words can't describe how adorable he is!) and were...

This is a very charming house and Roberto and Paula are wonderful hosts (their son, Caesar, is a great kid too). It is about as close as you'll get to San Gimignano unless you want to stay in the town itself, which is not necessary since this is a 5 minute drive from one of the lots adjoining the town....

If you ever find yourself in the Tuscan countryside then you HAVE to stay at Locanda Viani! The exceptional hospitality that Roberta & Paola showed us started from the moment we got there - the kind of hospitality that you are hard-pressed to find nowadays.

We stayed at Locanda Viani last year and had such a memorable experience we returned this year and held a Tuscan banquet there to celebrate our wedding.

Only 300 metres away from the historic town centre.- Locanda Viani has 4 very comfortable bedrooms with air conditioning, internet free ADSL and a small wine bar.- The kitchen looks like an old grocery where every day revives fragrances and savours of past times.- The hall is a small art-gallery where some works by Roberto Viani are exhibited. The entrance has been furnished with pieces of furniture and glass cupboards which are examples of the best Tuscan handicraft. A beautiful terrace surrounded by a garden from which you can enjoy the view of San Gimignano.
