Host Guido has been here a long time, since retiring from banking. He does his job with warmth, efficiency, and a desire to help with his wealth of valuable information. The setting of La Locanda leaves you wondering if you could ever find better: its outlook and quiet seclusion are bound to enchant. Pity about the 'white road' access which... More

We had the great pleasure to spend 2 weeks at this quiet and peaceful place. Our large and clean room (superior double room with balcony) had an outstanding view to Volpaia and the Chianti countryside, a large bathroom with a window and WLAN. The small but excellent breakfast buffet with local products was served on the terrace. In the early... More

We first visited La Locanda shortly after it opened and then again a year and half later. In the intervening 14 years I'm happy to say that little has changed and the place is just as enchanting and wonderful as we remembered. First of all the location is ideal. Half way between Florence and Siena, it is the perfect base... More

I don't normally write reviews, but I feel compelled to do so in this case. La Locanda, and its owner, Guido, provided one of the most delightful experiences of our recent trip to Italy. First off, the property is absolutely gorgeous. It's an old Tuscan villa that has been lovingly restored by its owner. Everything is first class with modern... More

One of the most charming hotels I've ever had the pleasure to stay at and recommend. Picturesque, wonderful personal ambiance. It is quiet and peaceful, just minutes off the well trodden path, and very romantic. Wonderful place to catch your breath, and share a bottle of wine. Just plain GREAT!

We stayed at La Locanda for 3 days at the very end of our trip to Tuscany. We loved our time here. Set up the very edge of a hillside, La Locanda has gorgeous views overlooking the valley and most especially over to Volpaia, the most perfect little town just a 10 minute drive away. We *loved* Guido, who had... More

This is the second time we have stayed at La Locanda and as a rule we never revisit places, no matter how special - there are so many things to see in the world - but this time, we made an exception and were not disappointed. There is a special magic about this small hotel perched on a Tuscan hillside... More

When you first see La Locanda in pictures, you fall in love with the cozy rooms and the remote location because you are looking for a place to unwind and disconnect from the world for a few days. But when you start making your way up there and you see the beauty of Tuscany, the hills, the landscape and the... More

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
