In one word Wauw!!!! The environment is stunning and the view is even more stunning and breathless. Sonia and Massimo are really helpful, caring and sweet. Nothing is to much. I'm allergic for gluten and lactose. So Massimo baked me special bread and banana pancakes. It's was lovely and it made my day! The stay in the old church was... More

This renovated church should be a must have destination for any adventurous travelers in the region. Their accommodations are limited to just three rooms, but they are well appointed and comfortable. The views are mesmerizing and you will be tempted to spend much time just taking the scenery. Do it. Their grounds are well cared for and for the reasonably... More

We recently spent 10 wonderful days in that exceptional location with exceptional hospitality! If you don't mind to stay in a calm and a little bit remote location up in the tuscany hills close to Cortona (5 minutes by car), then this is the perfect place for you to go. Overlooking a wide part of the Tuscany plane with sight... More

Staying here was one of the highlights of our holiday in Tuscany. The view from the B&B is quite breathtaking as it has the most beautiful position in the hills. Our room was perfect - beautifully finished, and renovated with precision and thought- I loved the minimalist and peaceful feel of the decor. Each detail has been thought through, and... More

We were attending a wedding in the Cortona area and originally had booked a room in the city where other guests would be staying. We decided to change our booking last-minute after reading about Locanda San Martino a Bocena - and are so glad we did! The view from the converted church is breathtaking and the property itself is so... More

We stayed at Massimo and Sonia's B&B for one week and couldn't have had a better time. The converted chapel is tucked away in the rolling hills of Tuscany, and is the perfect place for a restful retreat. Our hosts were welcoming and warm, and included Pippo the friendly (and very well behaved) dog. The rooms themselves were very spacious... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in early July ’14 and loved it. It’s a steep little drive up the hill to the B&B, but it was more than worth it for the fantastic view of the countryside as well as the sense that you are really out in the authentic hills of Tuscany. The grounds of... More

We were to have our wedding in Cortona and I have heard good things about the place, being South of Tuscany. But nothing prepared us for our B&B. It took our breath away. Our B&B used to be a 10th century church. It is rustic and quaint, made more comfortable by upgraded bathroom and heater that still beautifully stayed true... More

We stayed at Massimo and Sonia's locanda for four nights and enjoyed every second of it. Together with our 4 parents we were able to get married in Cortona and the way we could use the locanda for preparations, dinner, relaxing and enjoying each others company was above our expectations. Sonia and Massimo our very down-to-earth people with a good... More
