San Giovanni is not the most fashionable village in the area, but La Locanda is the perfect oasis where to catch up after a day of wondering and wandering around the Montalcino and Val d'Orcia hills. Friendly people, ready to accomodate your wills and needs, large rooms with all comforts you need, beautiful views, all in the setting of a... More

Situated in a sleepy hamlet, La Locanda del Castello is a charming place to spend a few days whilst exploring southern Tuscany's towns and villages. Our large double room was simply decorated, very clean with a good sized efficient shower. The free WiFi was reliable and the A/C was essential given the near 40 degree temperatures outside. We only sampled... More

We stayed here for five nights in August and had a truly wonderful time. Each day we ventured off and explored the various wineries and townships. The best way to describe the location is halfway to Brunello and Nobilis. Massimo the host was very hospitable and generous and ensured our stay was perfect. The place is ancient and charming and...

A very beautiful location. Great food with a touch of Tuscany and a touch of Naples. The most charming owner. A good mix of customers from "local" Italian and non-Italian estate owners to classy tourists. And the wine selection should be overlooked.

My wife and I spent 2 days in this hotel - which is located in an old castle. The rooms were comfortable and the service was great. The restaurant had a selection of fantastic dishes. I remember sipping on glasses of Limoncello after dinner - served in clever little glasses that had an ice reservoir in the center ... San... More

We have chosen La Locanda del Castello from the pictures on Tripadvisor. Did not miss... Although not to close to Siena, but enjoyed driving around and checking all possible Tuscany cuisine variations. And vineries. We have stayed in very nice 1/2 room suite, not inexpensive (120€), but very high standard. Inclusive breakfast in restaurant downstairs with real Tuscan bread and... More

I recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel as part of a cycling tour I was on. The hotel is within a castle, so it's old and the rooms have lots of character. I liked my room -- and I had decent views from my window -- but it wasn't very clean. There were lots of cobwebs and there was... More

Charming hotel in a great location to use as a base for other travels and day trips to surrounding areas. Great service, comfortable beds and rooms. Daniela is a wonderful host and extremely helpful in securing reservations to one of the local wineries. Beware though, you are staying within a very small hamlet. Another reviewer said it best, "in 5... More

This is a 10-room inn located in a castle (which hosts probably the only truffle museum in the world) with a first class restaurant. We had a two room suite with a modern, clean bathroom. We used La Locanda del Castello as our base for visiting Siena, Montelpuciano, Pienza, and so many other places. Daniela is the host and she... More
