I wish I could stay at Locanda dell' Artista forever!!! This place is amazing and will always be a special place for my husband and I! Cristian, Baker, and the entire staff there make all guests feel like VIP and are so very welcoming. We stayed for 3 nights and regret not staying longer. Everything from the 5 star service to the unbelievable view was perfection. We loved every minute there and enjoyed exploring nearby towns and relaxing by the pool. They have a restaurant on site- expensive, but so delicious. Also, their breakfast on the terrace was breathtaking. My husband and I had such an amazing experience there, we will definitely be back. Thank you Cristian and Baker for making our vacation more than perfect. You all surpassed our expectations!!!

Baker, Cristian, and their staff offer their guests a genuinely and thoroughly beautiful, comfortable, and service-minded experience. Every aspect of our 4-night stay (Easter 2018) in this very special spot in Tuscany was a delight. Every detail has been well-considered and is well-accommodated. Enjoy with ease the trustworthy and clear guidance you will receive for exploring the locality and its rich offerings. Don't hesitate to book either the boutique hotel or the restaurant, Al 43. If you've found them, you're the lucky one!

Locanda dell'Artista managed to exceed our expectations even after we read so many wonderful reviews about it! Baker and Cristian are the best hosts and the place could not be any more lovely. It is perched on a hill in Tuscany about a 12 minute drive from San Gimignano with such a picturesque view you have to pinch yourself to make sure it's real. We were greeted so warmly by everyone and offered glasses of wine once we were settled in. The whole place is so beautiful, Baker and Cristian did such a great job making it feel very authentically Tuscan with a touch of modern. We figured there would be funky things you would get at an old Tuscan villa like a tiny bathroom, weird plumbing, or whatever it might be, but Baker and Cristian have every detail covered. The room was spacious and beautiful and the bathroom was fabulous. I also can't forget the breakfast, so fresh and delicious! Everything was of the highest quality. And the restaurant is really special for dinner. It is expensive but worth it - every dish is a delicious work of art. Lastly, the pool is perfect. We enjoyed a few hours in the sun our last day and it was so relaxing. Thank you for a fabulous stay, Baker and Cristian! We will definitely be back (and will be sending our friends).

Locanda Dell' Arista was amazing! I stayed with a group of 5 women. 3 of us rented the suite which was beautiful and included our own terrace. The views from the entire property are breathtaking. Just laying by the pool and enjoying the view was one of the best parts of my trip. Baker & Christian go above and beyond to make sure your entire stay is perfect. I will definitely be back!

This was our first trip to Italy, and Locanda dell' Arista was by far our favorite place. For a hotel it was more of a home. Baker and Cristian were excellent, professional and welcoming. It was the absolute best experience of my lifetime. If and when my wife and I go back it will be my desire to spend our whole vacation here. When you visit heaven, everywhere else is lacking. The rooms were spacious and warm, the restaurant, world class and the pool was perfect. The scenery was relaxing and gorgeous. This is a must for your Italy trip. 5 star in my book. S. Hale, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.
