Everything about La Locanda is wonderful. Guido, the owner is a such a warm and helpful host knows the area intimately and goes the extra mile to help. Though I read multiple guide books of the area, he knows the area intimately and his suggestions added greatly to our trip. He provides detailed road maps of the area, made reservations... More

We arrived in La Locanda after a horrendous journey from London, having been trapped on a faulty train on the underground and missing our flight. But the beauty and tranquillity of La Locanda, with its most welcoming and gracious host Guido, made the memories of our troubles disappear almost instantly. We woke up next morning to the magnificent view, glorious... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful inn for a week, and it was one of the most magical places I've ever stayed. The rooms were a nice size, very airy and nicely appointed with fresh, ironed sheets and towels every day. There was a panoramic view of the hilltown of Volpaia and the Chianti countryside from our... More

We LOVED our 8 day stay at La Locanda. Guido, our host, was a delight. He was knowledgeable, helpful, gracious, warm, and a good cook! After 19 years as owner/manager of this beautiful property far from the madding crowds, Guido knows the area like the back of his hand. His recommendations were spot on--from restaurants to shopping to long walks... More

La Locanda lived up to my dreams. The loudest thing we could hear were the bees. Accommodations were charming, as was Guido. We will definitely be back. Chianti (and La Locanda) have stole a piece of my heart. Guido was an impeccable host, even assisted me in obtaining tickets to a soccer match, Fiorentina vs Inter. My only regret is... More

We have traveled the world, but La Locanda is the place we always dream of returning to…. and we've been back five times. Simple elegance, a breathtaking view, and the most charming of hosts, Guido Bevilacqua. I almost hesitate letting other people in on the secret….

Stayed at La Locanda for 4 nights with a group, so we rented the entire place. All I can say is that our stay was perfect. The lodging is lovely, with every attention to detail (excellent bedding, luxurious towels, hand-selected little specialties like local chocolates and soaps). The remote location allows for one of the best views in all of... More

We stayed at La Locanda for two nights in September this year following a recommendation. We had a wonderful time, too short but we will certainly return for a longer stay. A wonderfully relaxing place in magnificent countryside with fantastic views of Volpaia and a superb infinity pool. Guido as mine host was exceptionally hospitable providing excellent restaurant and sightseeing... More

This was our first time at this wonderful place, almost everybody we met there had been there before, some as many as 8 times, which speaks volumes for the quality if the experience. It is in a lovely spot on a hillside opposite the lovely village of Volpaia. The owner Guido is fantastic, very helpful, recommending restaurants and booking tables... More
