The rooms are lovely, the location is great, the restaurant was wonderful and best of all was the host, Massimo. He was there to help out with everything, giving us a lift when needed, giving us advice, and just being a lovely and helpful host.

A must-stay hotel in the heart of beautiful Tuscany. In truffle season (April and September) it's a foodie paradise. Excellent Tuscan wines too, especially Brunello. You need a hire car- very cheap generally- but with one this is a great base for seeing the best of Tuscany - Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano and so on. And the owner Massimo is always... More

My husband came in for dinner one late night and ended up staying way past closing time with the owner and his friend enjoying great conversation, music and wonderful hospitality. The owner, Massimo, made us feel very welcome and it's worth a visit just to hang out with the great people that stay at the Castello. Great laughs, great memories!

Returned after a break of a few years to find that it has become better than ever. Giovanni, the chef surpasses himself daily with phenomenal Tuscan cuisine. Massimo, the owner is a constant presence and always helpful and fun. Martina, the day manager will do everything that makes your stay a pleasure, including booking tickets for the Uffizi Gallery.

We stayed in a villa 2km from the village where this hotel is situated so decided to pop up for an early evening drink with our two children. On arrival, the waitress delayed greeting us at the front desk. After a couple of minutes, she came to see what we wanted without welcoming us. We asked if we could have... More

San Giovanni is not the most fashionable village in the area, but La Locanda is the perfect oasis where to catch up after a day of wondering and wandering around the Montalcino and Val d'Orcia hills. Friendly people, ready to accomodate your wills and needs, large rooms with all comforts you need, beautiful views, all in the setting of a... More

Situated in a sleepy hamlet, La Locanda del Castello is a charming place to spend a few days whilst exploring southern Tuscany's towns and villages. Our large double room was simply decorated, very clean with a good sized efficient shower. The free WiFi was reliable and the A/C was essential given the near 40 degree temperatures outside. We only sampled... More

We stayed here for five nights in August and had a truly wonderful time. Each day we ventured off and explored the various wineries and townships. The best way to describe the location is halfway to Brunello and Nobilis. Massimo the host was very hospitable and generous and ensured our stay was perfect. The place is ancient and charming and...

A very beautiful location. Great food with a touch of Tuscany and a touch of Naples. The most charming owner. A good mix of customers from "local" Italian and non-Italian estate owners to classy tourists. And the wine selection should be overlooked.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Looking for a Hotel and a Restaurant in the heart of Tuscany south of Siena, in the middle of the three renowned wine districts of Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano, and set inside the unique and unspoiled landscapes of the Crete Senese and Val d' Orica ? LA LOCANDA DEL CASTELLO is the answer. Is a XVI century building which has been recently restored into a small hotel in the ancient and peaceful hamlet of San Giovanni d' Asso, celebrated for its famous white truffles. Just outside the village there is the wonderful garden "Bosco Della Ragnaia" created by the American artist Sheppard Craig. The territory is rich of history, with many hamlets, castles and abbeys to discover; rich for its natural hot springs with the chance of relaxing yourself in spas and spoiling yourself with massages and beauty treatments.Moreover if your Clients likes to do sports while on holiday, there is the chance of going horse riding, trekking, biking or have the wonderful experience of admiring the area from above on a hot air balloon.Not to forget the gastronomy experience this territory is able to offer: the Clients may visit some of the many wineries of the region and taste it's famous wines, in addition to the other main products of the area such as olive oil, cheese and truffle; and if they are willing to know more about the Tuscan food they may choose to take cooking classes in order to be able to remember the flavors of our region once back home.The Hotel LA LOCANDA DEL CASTELLO offers 9 rooms all finely restored and divided in the following room categories (3 standard, 3 Superior and 3 Suites).
