Castello La Leccia is a beautiful property with a charming staff, beautiful rooms. meticulously tended gardens and a large swimming pool. And oh, did I mention the superb wines and olive oil made by Francesco Daddi, the hotel’s owner? And the authentic Tuscan cuisine cooked by Antonio, the chef?
Perched on a hill with views of Siena and San Gemignano in the distance Castello La Leccia is the perfect place to just relax or to sue as a center for exploring the cultural wonders of the region. The staff posts local events every day on a blackboard in the lobby. And Francesco gives a tour of the wine cellar every day at 5:30 (don’t miss it if you are interested in wine). The tour is followed by a wine and olive oil tasting in the hotel (Francesco does not call it a hotel but rather a farm with some guest rooms) accompanied by local cheeses.
This really is one of the most charming and beautiful places I have ever stayed at in Italy or anywhere else, for that matter.
