Had a wonderful two night stay at Locanda Viani in May. We were greeted by our lovely host Roberto on arrival and he showed us to our room, the lovely blue room, then up to a wonderful surprise balcony off of our room which had fantastic views all around us. Sitting on that balcony with a glass of wine, cheese...

This was our first B&B in Italy, and wow, it was lovely! The hosts, although limited in English, tried so hard to accommodate us and be helpful. The bath was huge, the room just right and the view was magnificent! Roberto's paintings were amazing and added so much to the house. It was so easy to walk into town and...

I loved this place. It may not be for everyone as a car is most definitely necessary. It is conveniently within nice walking distance of the town center. I appreciated being able to wake with the lovely view of town from my window, which you obviously can't enjoy if you stay in town. Locanda Viani felt very homey with comfortable...

Stayed at Locanda Viani for three nights in Sept 2010. Roberto was a warm, charming host who greeted us every evening upon returning from our siteseeing. Paola prepared the once/week guest dinner that was fit for a Michelin star restaurant. Their son, Cesare, helped Roberto to serve dinner. English is spoken, but Italian too to help learn it. Felt like...

We were spoiled with a romantic & spotless room, with a private terrace offering 360 views of tuscan hillside. This alone would earns close to 5 stars. In addition, we experienced a culinary adventure from a personal gourmet chef Paola, plus guided by a travel expert, and immersed ourselves in daily tuscan life with daily history lessons from Roberto.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Roof top terrace attached to our room afforded wonderful views of the Tuscan hills and it is an easy walk into San Gimignano.

Nice, Spacious rooms with amazing views of San G and the surrounding picturesque Tuscan countryside. Friendly family owners who spoke only Italian, and putting mine to the test. They are a chef, a former artist and a cute bambino and give the B+B personality. It is a bit pricey but worth it for its many attributes.

We stayed at Locanda Viani for four nights during our honeymoon trip to Italy. Roberto, Paola and their adorable son Cesare were wonderful hosts! Our room was beautiful and we had a private terrace with a view overlooking San Gimignano. On our second night, Paola cooked a private dinner for us, and we shared a bottle of Roberto's homemade wine-...

I've recently spent a lovely tuscan vacation with some friends at Locanda Viani and we were incredibly impressed; it exceeded our expectations! We were welcomed by the owner and painter Roberto Viani, a great host, that gave us countless useful tips for our visit.

The entrance has been furnished with pieces of furniture and glass cupboards which are examples of the best Tuscan handicraft.
