About

High in the hills between Florence and Siena, near the ancient walled city of San Gimignano, lies Locanda dell' Artista, a romantic country inn nestled in the heart of beautiful Tuscany. The Locanda’s forty acre estate commands spectacular views of the towers of San Gimignano and the surrounding countryside, including sprawling vineyards, verdant forests, and the inn’s own lush olive groves and luxurious swimming pool. With a maximum of twelve guests, this is a private retreat of newly restored 18th century farmhouses combining the modern amenities of a luxury hotel with the personality, individual service and comfort of an elegant bed and breakfast. Whether one is interested in shopping and sightseeing, hiking and biking, or simply whiling the day away enjoying “il dolce far niente”, the Locanda promises sophisticated travelers a truly idyllic holiday. Since no trip to Italy would be complete without food, your complimentary breakfast (con cappuccino, naturally) is available every morning. Dinner at the Inn is not to be missed as our inspired chef Costantino Servedio finds the freshest local ingredients and lovingly prepares regional dishes with a modern flare. Locanda dell' Artista - Your home away from home whilst you enjoy the history, beauty, food, charm and magic of Tuscany.

About the innkeepers

Innkeepers Cristian Rovetta and Baker Bloodworth were traveling through Tuscany in 2010 when they happened upon the ruins of a centuries old farming estate. It was love at first sight, and the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime. Since that moment, Cristian, the owner of a fashion accessories business in Bergamo, and Baker, an academy-award nominated film producer from Los Angeles, have devoted themselves to acquiring and restoring this extraordinary property.
