This is a beautiful locanda, recently renovated by Courtney and Michele that is perfectly located for exploring southern Tuscany, or like us to get away from Rome for a weekend and enjoy a stroll across the rolling Tuscan hills.
From the minute we arrived at this small, cozy, quiet and charming 9-room locanda, we were greeted as friends and shown around - the sitting room, gym, meeting room and up to our suite that overlooked the main square of the little village of Piazze. Having two young children we felt this was the most convenient set-up; adjacent rooms are also available for families with older children. The rooms are all beautifully decorated with antiques and family heirlooms.
We were also able to enjoy their exceptional on-site restaurant, conveniently placed “just around the corner”. More modern in style it has a very tempting seasonal menu and extensive wine list.
Breakfast the next morning was wonderful - set in a bright room with a wide selection of cereals, yoghurt, and delicious freshly baked cakes, homemade jams and crostate.
They have extensive suggestions regarding local festivals & activities (from the local spas to pottery workshops) as well as where to go for some special gift or culinary experience.
