A perfect boutique hotel in Tuscany. Recommended for couples. Me and my wife will certainly go back here! Do not take the whole family, since children under 12 are not allowed. The hotel would like to keep the quiet atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

It is hard to describe the magnificence of this facility which is the result of a 5 year renovation by the owners who have owned it since 1920 thru 3 generations (originally built in the 1300’s as a fortress to defend Florence from Sienna). My wife and I stayed 5 days at the end of a 17 day trip that... More

The hotel had been renovated with taste, attention to detail and a big budget. So everything works well. Staff is extremenly helpful in every respect. It is fantastic to have breakfast in the garden surrounded by great Tuscan landscape. They serve a high quality breakfast which offers good choices in Italian standards, but in international standards choices are rather limited.... More

Dear denc48, I thank you for your nice comments about the staff and good taste in renovation; by the way: I wish I have a big budget! I have been very careful in estimating every single cost, that’s way it took almost 5 years to open the rooms…. I am sorry that you found limited our breakfast choice, but being... More

We stayed in Castello La Leccia for two nights with our 8 month old baby girl in the beginning of October. The place is amazing, so beautiful and peaceful. We stayed in room number 9 which was very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hospitality is very generous and welcoming. We ate dinner there in one of the nights which... More

I will not repeat how wonderful the hotel, its staff, wine and food is. I just want to add that the wine tour given by the owner, Francesco, was quite special. Unlike the many other wine tours we'd done before, it was simply a plain and detailed explanation of how he makes his wine. No bells and whistles. However, for... More

Wow! Stayed three nights in this really extraordinary haven in Chianti and were blown away by the style, the comfort, the luxury of La Leccia. Arrived mid-afternoon after a long drive and had a quite wonderful light lunch in the garden, overlooking a picture-perfect Tuscan landscape.

If you want to stay in the perfect place in the Chianti area, then this is definitely the place. The lovely staff, the beautiful location, the picturesque gardens, the invigorating infinity pool, the luxurious room, the exquisite restaurant were without fault. We were also given a facinating guided tour of the winery and tasting room. Wonderful.
