Castello La Leccia is as beautiful as the photos. Even great photos can't capture the feeling of being there: peaceful, beautiful setting and scenery, elegantly updated. However, what makes it so special is the staff. We were checked in by Laura and she gave us a complete tour of the grounds, the common areas and our beautiful room. I didn't... More

A real discovery and a true delight. Everything about Castello La Leccia marks it out as a distinctive and special property. This small castle has been beautifully and sensitively restored by its owners. Its location on a hill looking in one direction towards Siena and in the other towards the towers of San Gimignano could not be more perfect. The... More

We turned up with high expectations after our first visit to have an awful meal , slow service , delightful staff but......if it hadnt been for the spectacular setting frankly that saved it from getting no points. My main course was almost inedible what a shame so much else is right and the soup starter less than average, also everything... More

Dear Jill S., Your review greatly surprised and disappointed me. My surprise is principally caused by the submission of a negative review without ever having stayed in one of our Rooms but also, as far as we can tell, never having dined with us recently. Our regret is for the harsh and purposely degrading tone of the review. (Trip Advisor... More

We stay in La Leccia for 5 nights with our 3 children. All love it very much. Big, nice and clean rooms. Very friendly collaborators with eye for detail. A good restaurant with a fantastic sommelier! From now La Leccia will be always on our list when we visit Italy. Family Claeys (Belgium)

This is a surprising fantastic hotel in Chianti. Beautiful landscape, big property with only 12 rooms.. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. They have their own winery that you can visit if you wish with the owner. You will be able to try several delicious local wines (and also local olive oil). The staff is great and helpful. This is...

A beautifully renovated castle with every attention to detail to make guests' stay as pleasant as possible. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, offering to help choose restaurants, wine producers and any other interesting sites and events to visit in Chianti. Very peaceful place so if you're looking for a buzzing vibe, wouldn't recommend (children under 12 not allowed) but for... More
