The food is excellent and we concur with previous reviewers' comments. It is cooked and served with love - something no mass-catering operation could emulate. Ercole is a delightful host and cares very much about his guests' comfort. Our rooms was clean and the bed comfortable. On the downside, it was quite small, not helped by the large, rickety old...

The food was overcooked and while the menu said the dish cost 16 euros each we were charged 22 euros each. We did not ask for the contorni, which actually looked like decoration on the plate. It really was disappointing.

My husband and I spent a magical week at Locando Senio. It was everything we'd hoped for on our holiday. A beautiful medieval town nestled in a valley surrounded by Tuscan mountains from where we set off everyday on walks through wildflower meadows and refreshed in waterfall pools. We stayed in one of the lovely rustic suites filled with antiquities... More

Just back from a lovely stay with Ercole, Roberta and Emmanuel at this lovely property. The rooms (we had two of their suites), facilities - lovely sun trap of a swimming pool, absolutely lovely 5 course meals (you can have fewer courses - but we were given a few dishes I'd never tried before) mainly sourced from local farmers plus...

Locanda Senio is an inn, restaurant and apartments situated in a small town in the mountains north-east of Florence and Tuscany. It is run by Ercole and his wife Roberta who does the cooking. They have been there for 29 years. We visited previously 14 years ago, and it is as friendly and quiet as ever. We stayed for a... More

Warmly welcomed by Ercole, we were delighted by his wife's superb cooking at their old inn in medieval Palazzuolo sul Senio in the heart of Italy's unspoilt Mugelo ( the hills between Florence and Ravenna). We had a log fire in our sitting room in the suite, ate excellent breakfasts and over indulged over Roberta's amazing dinners of local produce,... More

We stayed for a week whilst walking with Headwater. The food was amazing, with a completely different menu every night. The six different types of homemade bread each evening were a real treat. We particularly enjoyed the cookery demonstrations and wine and olive oil tastings that were part of our package. The walking was beautiful..

Unless you are staying in the apartments, there are only a few and they are charming and quite spacious, then look elsewhere because the value is not there. After an annual touring holiday of Italy and France, staying in similar accommodation each night, we found the prices here were exorbitant especially given the fact that our room and bathroom were...

We spent a week here on a walking holiday. The hotel is in the heart of the village and close to all amenities including an excellent gelateria. The village is very friendly and, considering its size, surprisingly vibrant. Ercole is a very genial host and makes you feel really welcome, his wife Roberta, cooks the most amazing food and there... More
