What a wonderful stay! Our host Chiara was very welcoming to my aunt and I, who stayed with her in September. Certaldo Alto is a great alternative to busier hill top towns in Tuscany, and with a central location. Our room had views of San Gimignano, and our breakfast was served out in the courtyard (very rare in such a... More

This was our first trip to Italy and we were blown away by our stay at Locanda Linando II B&B. When we arrived Chiara was waiting for us even though our flight was delayed and we were very late! She was so friendly and welcoming, helping us with a parking permit and telling us all about the B&B and Certaldo.... More

Great rooms. Plenty of space. Bathroom was a little tight but worked well. Lovely old home. We were well taken care of. We loved the winding staircases and each one of the murals. It is truly beautiful. The neighborhood is quaint and very quiet.

My first stay at Locanda Linando II was absolutely marvellous. The interior is very nice, and the house brings your thoughts back to the medieval. But what makes the trip perfect is the owner of the Place - Chiara. We called her "the Angel of Certaldo". She makes the breakfast in the backyard the perfect start of the day. Big... More

This was our second visit to the place and we loved it just as much as the first time. Chiara the owner is a delight and she went to any length to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Great traditional food and ambiance - Highly recommended - we can't wait to go back again.

If you want a true Italian experience away from the mobs, this is it. Relaxed, beautiful, friendly. The history is fascinating, the food is to die for. Chiara, the owner, helps you feel right at home immediately and can help with all sorts of things. I would definitely return.

I would highly recommend a visit to Locando Linando for anyone wanting a real taste of Italy. The location is postcard perfect, a Medieval village sitting high on top of Certaldo with cobbled streets and traditional buildings lining the streets. The bed and breakfast itself is lovely and the owner, Chiara is not only fluent in English but has an... More

Locanda Linando II is the quintessential B&B in the quintessential Tuscan town. Certaldo is off the beaten path but centered in the heart of Tuscany (why pay for the commercial kitsch and crowds of San Gimignano when it's yours for the viewing from the ramparts of Certaldo and your room at Locanda Linando II)! Chiara is a wonderful hostess who,... More

“Nice rooms, very good atmosphere”

“I do 't feel that this B&B is appropriate for young children, but for adults, it is wonderful. As is the way for most quaint, Italian accommodations, there are no screens. This is, after all, a 14th century building. However, the room was comfortable with the use of a fan (provided).”
