(Countryside Residences) San Gimignano
A secret you'll want to keep!
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- A boutique country inn with view of the towers of San Gimignano
- A saltwater swimming pool in the heart of the country
- Old fashioned charm - with WiFi and docking station!
A place for just a few friends, 12 to be precise: Locanda dell' Artista is a heavenly hideaway, a romantic country inn just outside the medieval hilltop town of San Gimignano, immersed in a typically Tuscan landscape of vineyards, olive groves and woods.
When country is chic
A recently restored 18th century farmhouse, decorated with antiques, artworks and exquisite items of handcrafted furniture, Locanda dell' Artista looks (and feels) more like a much-loved private home than a hotel.
Wrought iron beds, floors in time-worn terracotta, massive ceiling beams: La Locanda dell' Artista's bedrooms have "Tuscany" written all over them!
The charm is old world, but not the amenities! There's free Wi-Fi, a docking station for your iPod/iPhone and a Nespresso coffee machine in every room.
Take it slow
The mornings start in style at Locanda dell' Artista with a leisurely breakfast of typical breads and cakes, jams, fresh fruit, local cheese and as much cappuccino as you want, which is served in the dining room or, in warm weather, outdoors on the terrace.
Not ready to leave the comfort of your room just yet? Ask for breakfast to be delivered to your door and enjoy a basketful of Tuscan treats ... in bed!
A poolful of pleasure
Whilst sleepy heads snooze, energetic types can begin the day with splash, in the Locanda's saltwater swimming pool amidst the olive trees.
The same pool provides the perfect place in which to relax and soak up the Tuscan sun after a morning spent exploring nearby San Gimignano...
Meet the makers
Great food makes great friends. Don't be surprised if Cristian and Baker, the Locanda dell'Artista's jovial owners, invite you to join them for dinner!
Whilst the pans are bubbling and the corks are being popped, they'll quickly transform the lounge or terrace into an intimate restaurant in which to enjoy a dish of pasta and a glass of San Gimignano's highly acclaimed Vernaccia wine!
