We spend two nights at the charming and perfectly run Locanda Toscanini.
It was a joy to be there. An old mill transformed into a small hotel, the Locanda provided a wonderful base for exploring southern Tuscany and Umbria. Piazze is a sweet village; Montepulciano is only about 40 minutes away. Our room and bath were beautifully decorated, quiet, clean and oh so comfortable. The welcoming fruit basket was a nice treat.. The remarkable Christina took care of all of our questions (especially since we arrived on a national holiday) and made a terrific breakfast. Owner Courtney Walsh, who wasn't on hand during our stay, made a point of calling to greet us personally by phone. This is the type place where the guest feels that everything is being done for her/him to have an ideal stay.
