This was our second visit to the place and we loved it just as much as the first time. Chiara the owner is a delight and she went to any length to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Great traditional food and ambiance - Highly recommended - we can't wait to go back again.

If you want a true Italian experience away from the mobs, this is it. Relaxed, beautiful, friendly. The history is fascinating, the food is to die for. Chiara, the owner, helps you feel right at home immediately and can help with all sorts of things. I would definitely return.

I would highly recommend a visit to Locando Linando for anyone wanting a real taste of Italy. The location is postcard perfect, a Medieval village sitting high on top of Certaldo with cobbled streets and traditional buildings lining the streets. The bed and breakfast itself is lovely and the owner, Chiara is not only fluent in English but has an... More

Locanda Linando II is the quintessential B&B in the quintessential Tuscan town. Certaldo is off the beaten path but centered in the heart of Tuscany (why pay for the commercial kitsch and crowds of San Gimignano when it's yours for the viewing from the ramparts of Certaldo and your room at Locanda Linando II)! Chiara is a wonderful hostess who,... More

Don't miss this unique B & B. Explore the rooms in this ancient, renovated historical building and find a new surprise in every corner. Hear all about the area from your charming hostess Chiara and see the magnificant scenery in the area.

We have stayed at Locando Linando several times over the last few years and keep going back. The medieval village of Certaldo Alto is a very special place with cobbled streets and wonderful little resturants and bars tucked away. The surrounding countryside is breathtaking and makes it an ideal location for visiting surrounding villages - if you can tear yourself... More

For me staying at Locando Linando was like being transported into a medieval fairy tail for two nights. I visited Certaldo Alto while travelling with a friend through Italy. By luck we arrived during Boccaccesca - a festival of local food and wine. We had a great time checking out the vendors on the cobble stone streets, tasting the local... More

This place is filled with a magic light! The rooms are splendid, the views of the town and surrounding hills are breathtaking! The location of Certaldo is very convenient to get around Tuscany. It's a wonderfully preserved medieval town with unique vibe and charming streets. The hostess, Chiara, is kind, helpful, knowledgeable and fun. The B&B has a personality and... More

Locando Linando is an artistic gem steeped in the history of the mediaeval town of Certaldo-Alto. This little town, the birthplace of Boccaccio, sits atop a hill with glorious countryside views towards the spires of its more famous neighbour, San Gimignano. But the great advantage of Certaldo-Alto is that it remains completely unspoilt by mass tourism. A quiet room amidst... More

Staying at Locanda Linando II is really an experience you should treat yourself to when traveling through Tuscany. The interior decoration itself is a treat, so much detail and completely fitting into the historic surroundings. The owner and manager, Chiara Felicity is a superb host and personally sees to it that you are comfortable. She actually comes out to meet... More
