We spent here 4 night in July. Rooms are big enough, some with terasse. Host Roberto, his wife and cute son Julio were as our family. Location is close to the city center, all rooms has fabulous view on San Gimignano. Highly recommended and thank you again Roberto.

The owners were extremely pleasant and so helpful. Nothing was too much for them. The room was perfect with a terrace on the roof... a wonderful view and fantastic in the evenings to enjoy an aperitif or light meal. Also a very good position, within walking distance from San Gimignano. I would highly recommend a stay at Locanda Viani.
