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,... More

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... More

The breakfasts were varied, delicious and the coffee was wonderful. The villa is a very easy 10 minute walk from SG and Roberto gave us many suggestions for... More

It's a small hotel run by a family (Roberto, his wife Paola and their small son Cesare) with only four rooms. At the same time it is fantastically located - less than 15 minutes walk to San Gimignano city centre with a terrific view on the panorama of the city. We stayed for 4 nights in the Azure bedroom with... More

We spent 4 nights at Locanda Viani. Roberto and his wife are a lovely couple and they made us feel so welcome. Their villa is very close to San Gimignano, about 10 minutes walk and its good to stay slightly outside of town because it gets extremely busy in San G. If you are looking for a relaxing stay with...

We got this bed & breakfast referral by our neighbours and i can honestly say it was far from being disappointing. Firstly this place is about a 10 minute walk to San Gimignano and is located in the beautiful mountains with lots of greenery. It is a very quiet area and the hosts Paola and Roberto are amazing.

A wonderful place, relaxed as soon as we arrived. Room was spacious with a wonderful view of San Gimignano. Great location to visit Florence, Siena and rural Chianti. Would highly recommend this great little B&B.

We stayed at the Locanda Viani for three nights this past June. Not only was our room more than spacious, our giant terrace made the stay! With incredible views of San Gimignano... we could not have asked for more! The owners of the Locanda were so wonderful, friendly and hospitable. They make you feel more like friends that are visiting... More
