We absolutely fell in love with this place: it is very cosy, comfortable, clean and well located (just a 10min walk from San Gimignano city center). However what really differentiated this place for us was the adorable hosts. They were so friendly, so helpful and so nice to us, that it was hard not to fall in love with this... More

The quiet setting of this property with the stunning views all around are very special and memorable. The room was very comfortable with thoughtful additions - kettle, plates, cutlery wine etc for the veranda should you need them. Paola's homemade breakfast's were delicious (my husband said) Sadly I could not partake of the bread & cakes but had a generous... More

We stayed at Locanda Viani for 6 nights - it was a very nice experience. You enjoy spectacular views of San Gimignano from the terrace of your room, without the hustle and bustle of the historic center of San Gimignano. It's a short walk from the Locanda to the center of town. Roberto and Paola are excellent hosts and give... More

Beautiful house with excellent location just outside San Gimignano. The family who runs it could not have been more charming and helpfull. Spectacular view from terrace. Parking on the property and only 10 min walk to San Gimignano (center). Well equipped room with refrigerator/minibar with wine, cuttlery and plates to enjoy cheese or a snack.

This B&B is run by a friendly couple with two polite and fun loving boys. The location, an easy one-half mile (0.8K) from San Gimignano, is ideal for being outside the town yet accessible to it by the short walk. The view is outstanding.

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

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
