“Unsurpassed hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The villa was our "home" for 4 nights on our tour with Odyssey, and each day was made memorable by Laura and her engaging family. Her Mother cooks traditional home-made meals accompanied by their own wine, her Husband taught us how to make their traditional cookies, very similar to biscotti, her beautiful sister is seen in the dining room at every meal, and her boys seem to do a lot of everything. The rooms and the views are so Italian Villa that I will always conjure up their home when I think of one.

I went with a tour this Summer to Italy and I had to write about a place we stayed in on our trip.
IT WAS AMAZING!! Every room is different and you feel like you are a friend staying in someone's home. Homecooked meals for dinner and breakfast!!! REALLY Homecooked by the grandmother. The meals were outstanding!!!! Your hostess greets you when you pull up and her boys delivered our suitcases to our rooms. My room had a staircase(a complete 360 degree turn going up) to a small room with a VIEW of the valley. We were treated with wonderful olive oil products for shower and bath!!!
There is a pool and a quiet and calming sauna pool. We had dinner under a tent outside with the view, then you walk over to the patio that overlooks a beautiful quiet valley with all the olive groves and grape vines. It was really breathtaking. It is so hard to describe something so beautiful as the Villa Lecchi. Thanks you Odessey for introducing us to the Villa.
Thank you so much for making our trip so memorable!!!!!

Laura and her family have done an incredible job of keeping a huge property feel homey. Friendly service with rooms equipped with everything you need – including lovely samples of a local toiletries company that uses olive oil in their all-natural products.
The views are astounding. Truly remarkable. We would sit on the front patio and watch the sun set each night, each night the sun putting on an incredible show. Pomegranate and olive trees line the property which holds a huge pool area which gets the sun right up until it sets. The restaurant was also so lovely. Not having to worry about driving around on the twisty Tuscan roads at night was a treat. The food even better. Tasting like it came from your Gramma’s kitchen (if my Gramma was Italian;), it was fresh and local and Tuscan to the bone. The service was also great. The first night we didn’t finish out bottle of champagne and the second night they brought it out to us, corked and chilled. Its those little touches that make a place memorable. We really loved our stay and meeting Laura and her family. A total recommend and in a great location for sightseeing – Siena being just 40 minutes away.

Room Tip: We stayed in the annexe farmhouse, which was lovely, but the gate outside was quite noisy during the...

Staying in a Tuscan villa was the highlight of all my trips to Italy (I've been three times). Standing on the terrace overlooking a sweeping view of the countryside was just like being in a movie. It may seem cliche, but Tuscany is the place I long to return to, and if I do, I will definitely stay at the Villa Lecchi again. As other reviewers have written, hospitality of the proprietor, Laura, and her family could not be better. The home-cooked regional fare is delicious, and the breakfasts are second to none. Decor of the villa is just I would expect -- somewhat formal, perhaps, but still warm and comfortable. Walking into our room, we expected something nice, but were blown away by the spiral staircase in our adjacent sitting room -- it lead up to a tower room with a sweeping view. My roommate, a photographer, was in heaven, and we shared many giggles trying to capture photos of the Tuscan moon as it glimmered over the village. It was also a delightful retreat for sharing regional wine, salami, and cheese with our friends. I could go on and on, but I'm sure my message is clear. If you have dreamed of staying in a Tuscan villa but cannot afford to rent one for the summer, a few days at Villa Lecchi will surely fulfill your dream.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so that's something to consider. The two corner "tower" rooms ar...

this is an absolutely wonderful place. the accomodation beats everything, taht is if you choose a room (room? appartment, suite!) in the main building. we treated ourselves to one of the tower suites. gorgeous view (you can see San Gimignano in the distance), spaceous, nicely decorated, quite, o so quite!
the breakfast (included) is very nice indeed (just beware of the cofee, ask for a coffee from the bar!), and if you are having a lazy day, you can have a simple but authentic lunch in the garden. the 4 course dinner in the evening is excellent and copious (we ended up sharing one dinner for 2, and we are not Dutch!), they have an interesting wine list too (and the price of the wine is by our western european standards surprisingly low).
the swimming, garden, wellness center: all very much OK.
and Laura is a charm!
this is a gem to treasure!

We stayed here for three nights in Sept 2012. What a delightful place! Rural tuscan setting, an ancient villa owned and staffed by one family. The rooms were spacious and well equipped, although there was no air conditioning. While not a problem for us, it might be a little uncomfortably hot in July/August. The view is spectacular. There is no elevator - again, not a problem for us but may not be your choice if you are not able to manage carrying your luggage up two or three flights of stairs. No wifi in the rooms. The in-house food is average, but the breakfast is enough to set you up for the day.

Room Tip: Ask for the room in the tower if it is available - private spiral staircase to the turret at the top...

Villa Lecchi is set in the Tuscan countryside and the views are majestic. There are plenty of places to visit nearby, including Sienna and Monteriggioni.

The family owned hotel is run like clockwork for the pleasure of the guests. The interior public rooms are just what you would expect for an aristocratic villa and for a while you can feel like an aristocrat. There is a pool and large grounds.

The home cooked food is second to none. You will not want to eat anywhere else.
