My husband and I stayed at Locanda Viani for 4 nights in May. Paola and Roberto were so accommodating and welcoming! The view from our terrace was BREATHTAKING-like something off a postcard, and I can't imagine finding a better view of San Gimignano anywhere else outside the walls. I even found a painting that looks just like our view from...

This is an overdue review. We stayed here at Locanda Viani last year and it was one of the highlights of our Italy trip. Their place captures what Tuscany is all about and they are an amazing family running this place. There is so so much good taste in decorating the property which I later found out Roberto did all...

We absolutely fell in love with this place: it is very cosy, comfortable, clean and well located (just a 10min walk from San Gimignano city center). However what really differentiated this place for us was the adorable hosts. They were so friendly, so helpful and so nice to us, that it was hard not to fall in love with this...

The quiet setting of this property with the stunning views all around are very special and memorable. The room was very comfortable with thoughtful additions - kettle, plates, cutlery wine etc for the veranda should you need them. Paola's homemade breakfast's were delicious (my husband said) Sadly I could not partake of the bread & cakes but had a generous...

We stayed at Locanda Viani for 6 nights - it was a very nice experience. You enjoy spectacular views of San Gimignano from the terrace of your room, without the hustle and bustle of the historic center of San Gimignano. It's a short walk from the Locanda to the center of town. Roberto and Paola are excellent hosts and give...

Beautiful house with excellent location just outside San Gimignano. The family who runs it could not have been more charming and helpfull. Spectacular view from terrace. Parking on the property and only 10 min walk to San Gimignano (center). Well equipped room with refrigerator/minibar with wine, cuttlery and plates to enjoy cheese or a snack.

This B&B is run by a friendly couple with two polite and fun loving boys. The location, an easy one-half mile (0.8K) from San Gimignano, is ideal for being outside the town yet accessible to it by the short walk. The view is outstanding.

We had a comfortable, pleasant two night stay. The room was lovely and Roberto and Paola along with their two sons were great hosts. This place is very close to the centre about a 10-15 min walk. Breakfast was made by Paola and was very good. We look forward to staying here again in the future!

Words are not enough to describe how wonderful Roberto and Paola are and how perfect their wonderful jewel of a B&B-Locanda Viani is. Even prior to our stay, Roberto was so helpful and answered multiple emails, answering questions about the area and services not directly related to Locanda Viani. It is obvious he truly cares about the services they provide,...

We have already visited various B&B's, though never before one as wonderful as Locanda Viani. Besides a clean, quiet and luxury room, the small family that runs this B&B is so lovely you never want to leave. The breakfast is the best one we have ever had in a B&B: always fresh and home made products, varying from day to...

We will be pleased to have you at the Locanda and experience with you the essence of our traditions.Roberto Viani, his wife Paola and his son Cesare truly welcome you. They place their splendid holiday home at disposal of all those who love Tuscany and would like to discover those places and traditions that only a friend on the spot may know. 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. Together we will have the opportunity to prepare your dinner and become acquainted with the world of Tuscan wine, olive oil and cheese by tasting a selection of products or visiting those producers who have considered quality as the main goal of their life. ... more   less
