“Wonderful Place to Stay in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Locanda Le Piazze was definitely one of our favourite places to stay in Italy. We stayed for four nights and used it as our base for exploring Tuscany with day trips to Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano and Montepulciano. Only scraped the surface, but that only means we will come back again and will not hesitate to stay at Locanda again!
The room was very comfortable and clean with lots of amenities, and the whole place was just so quiet and peaceful with all the charm that you would expect in Tuscany. We were there in September right before the harvest so the vines were still full of grapes!
We ended up dining at the restaurant every night so that we could relax with a bottle of wine at dinner and every night, there was enough variety on the menu for both of us to try something new.
Thank you for making our stay in Tuscany so wonderful! We look forward to coming back again soon in the near future!

Our stay at Locande le Piazza was amazing. The location was stunning and peaceful, and the amenities were top notch. The rooms were clean & spacious with complimentary wifi and the staff were friendly & knowledgeable. We had dinner at the onsite restaurant both nights we were there, and the polpo diavolo was so incredible I had to get it both nights! Breakfast was included with your stay, and consisted of a fresh collection of pastries, coffee, yogurt, fruit and cheese. Locande le Piazza was a lovely and relaxing place to stay on our visit to Castellina in Chianti. I would highly recommend to friends and family, and hope to return for a visit again in the future!

The Locanda is just beautiful, so clean, and comfortable. Great beds and linens. Gorgeous grounds, pool and views to forever. Breakfast is delicious and dinners good too. But the real bonus is the front office staff .... Jean and Claudia are so warm, welcoming and helpful, they just make you want to come back again. And we certainly hope to one day. Day trips to Castellina, San Donato, Colle val d'Elsa and other towns are not to be missed.

We had a wonderful time staying at Locanda Le Piazze. As soon as we arrived, we decided to extend our stay and wish we could stayed even more. The staff is very kind and welcoming, the rooms are very very comfortable and the hotel ambiance overall is just magical.
I will definitely be recommending it to my friends. İt was like a home away from home.

Loved this place, very charming staff, beautiful interior with chic decorations, a very nice restaurant, breathtaking surroundings and a panoramic view to die for from the pool. I long to come back, we had such a pleasant stay here and although there was some misunderstandings from their side: I emailed them about my gluten intolerance a few weeks before our stay and also that I would like a prosecco to our room for my husband's birthday - which none was fulfilled - but I feel like the over all experience compensated it all.

This place is great for couples looking for relaxation, perfect for exploring chiantishire, the old towns and vineyards.

We had an amazing time at this beautiful place - the interior decoration and attention to detail is unlike anything we've seen anywhere in Italy so far and we have traveled extensively. I am SO glad I ignored fact it wasn't listed in top 6 The photos are exactly as is and We are only sad we had just one night. The hotel has just been completely upgraded - grounds, rooms, pool and pool deck is incredible as is the view!!! Entire staff was wonderful. We met Natasha the owner who is French, an interior designer and it is apparent thats why this place is so special. The food was wonderful. We planned on salad only as stuffed full from a cooking class elsewhere that am but the smell of chefs food lured us and we ordered food after all on beautiful outside patio had an amazing baked cod that was so delicate it melted in our mouths. Who could think cod would be adore in Italy?! There's even an honor bar within this sparking clean Tuscan retreat ( hmmm restoration hardware meets Tuscany ) but some of the artwork and the driftwood tables and art pieces were made and overseen by the owner which was lovely. Because its been designed as a home, it is luxurious yet warm. Thank you !!

We had a great stay at Le Piazze - with a car, the location is perfect for visiting the key cities and sites within Tuscany, but it can be hard to leave the poolside with its fantastic views. Service from waiters was very friendly. Food was for the most part excellent - we had one disappointing dish in 4 meals, which can be forgiven - the rest was fantastic.
The only reason I've not given Le Piazze an "Excellent" is the price - at this price it provided everything we expect, rather than anything above and beyond.
