“Church bells! Argh!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2014

We stayed here as had booked in a hot air balloon ride which left early morning just outside of Montisi (bliss!). It was alright for one night, but probably the worst experience we had in Tuscany. The location is good in that you are right on what seemed to be the main square in tiny Montisi (there really is almost nothing there). But the locals gather until late chatting on the square and the church bells kept my boyfriend up for much of the night. The room is on the small side and the shower powerful but didn't drain well. The girl on the front desk seemed sweet, but spoke almost no English, which was difficult as we cannot speak Italian. If we were to do it again I'd find somewhere quieter outside of town.

Beautiful, romantic and comfortable lodgings set in the charming, quaint village of Montisi. We enjoyed our stay at La Locanda di Montisi very much.

We liked the decor of the room which combined rustic and new - a ceiling with long wooden beams, wrought iron bed and pretty wooden furniture with modern amenities, including wifi.

Our room and ensuite bathroom were spacious and clean and looked more attractive than the photos featured on the website.

We stayed at La Locanda di Montisi for a week and made it our base while we explored the nearby towns in Tuscany. Sylvia, Lucca and Tiziana made us feel very much at home and were very helpful in recommending nearby places to visit.

We plan to be back soon. And when we do, La Locanda di Montisi will be our top choice.

Room Tip: Very few rooms, I saw two and both were great. the building is 14th century, so the atmosphere is w...
