My husband and I spent 2 nights at Locanda dell' Artista. Our stay was fabulous in every way. I wish we would have stayed for a week. Dinners are only prepared certain nights and we were lucky enough to enjoy a superb meal. The staff was most helpful for directions, answering any questions, and making us feel at home. Baker...

The fabled and expansive beauty of Tuscany surrounded us while the intimacy of the spectacularly renovated and ancient farmhouse filled our trip with expansive luxury and romance. The views are from Michaelangelo and cuisine is world class. The authenticity of the innkeepers and their well earned pride of place made for one of the most restorative trips of my life.... More

Whether it was making dinner reservations for us, remembering our favorite kinds of coffee, giving us detailed directions to and from neighboring towns, or bringing us... More

It is located in the heart of beautiful Tuscany. The view is magical with rolling green hills and vineyards. The building and rooms itself are first class. The boys... More

Stayed here during a two week trip to Italy with my husband. This place is heaven and by far the highlight of our trip! We arrived after a very busy visit to Venice and immediately the world seemed to just stop. Laying by the pool I caught myself being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the Tuscan Hills. When... More

Getting caught up on my reviews after a two week holiday in Italy in June 2016,pardon if this is my second review of this hotel - anyway they deserve it. We traveled with another couple throughout Italy - staying in 7 different hotels. This was our third time in Italy and the other couple's first. Locanda was the absolute highlight... More

There's a very good reason why there's not a single bad review about Locanda dell/Artista - and that's because it's a pleasure to be there in every way.I stayed there as a single guest in June this year; the host, Baker - about whom you will read in most other reviews - is as courteous and as friendly and as...
