A secret you'll want to keep!

Three reasons why you'll love it here

  1. A boutique country inn with view of the towers of San Gimignano
  2. A saltwater swimming pool in the heart of the country
  3. Old fashioned charm - with WiFi and docking station!

In the peaceful countryside just outside San Gimignano, Locanda dell' Artista is a charming 6 bedroom retreat, created in a lovingly restored 18th century farmhouse.

A beautiful base from where to explore Tuscany's world famous art cities and medieval hilltop towns, this boutique country inn lies almost exactly halfway between Siena and Florence (both of which are less than an hour away) and within easy driving distance of other Tuscan gems like Lucca, Cortona and Pienza.

Little luxuries, big pleasures

Exposed wooden beams, terracotta floors, ornate wrought iron or canopied beds, exquisite hand-woven textiles and, in the bathrooms, complimentary toiletries from the Florence's famous Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella: Locanda dell'Artista's bedrooms have been tailor-made for romance!

On your honeymoon? Book the "Giardino Segreto" which opens out onto a gorgeous little garden and well-appointed patio, just for the two of you...

Romantic and hi-tech too, all rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, docking stations for iPod and iPhone and, for caffeine addicts, a Nespresso coffee maker.

Sweet dreams, even sweeter breakfasts

After a good night's sleep, you'll be ready for a good breakfast! A delicious selection of typical Tuscan breads and cakes, fresh fruit and local cheeses greets guests each morning in Locanda dell' Artista's dining room or, in warm weather, outdoors on the terrace.

Oops! Overslept? No problem: let the owners know and they'll deliver a breakfast basket to your room

A pool with a view, of San Gimignano

After a morning spent climbing up and down the towers of San Gimignano or exploring the other picture-perfect Tuscan towns in the vicinity, what better way to spend the afternoon than relaxing by Locanda dell' Artista's stunning heated saltwater swimming pool overlooking the olive trees?

When hospitality is heart-felt

With room for a maximum of 12 guests, even when it's fully booked, Locanda dell' Artista feels more like a private home than a hotel.
So much so that it's not unusual for owners, Cristian and Baker, to invite clients to come and join them for dinner.
After all, as any Italian will tell you, there's no better way to make friends than over a plate of pasta and a glass (or two!) of good wine...
