“Best place in the world. Magical!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We stayed here for our honeymoon back in September and I am so sorry it has taken me so long to write this. This really is the best place we have ever stayed. It is just amazing, the castle and grounds are stunning beyond belief the views are spectacular. We would often enjoy an afternoon tea or glass of Prosecco at the pool or in the gardens enjoying the beautiful views. The rooms and décor of the place is outstanding it is done with pure class and attention to detail, there is nothing more you could need here, it is just PERFECT. We would like to say huge thank you to all the staff they could not have been more helpful giving us tips on where to go and giving us really helpful advice. The service was just out of this world they could not do enough for us. We would like to say a special thank you to Alice and Beatrice who were so helpful and friendly they were delightful and really went out of their way to make our stay special. Also a thank you to Rafaella for the delicious food and excellent service. This was the best honeymoon we could have possibly hoped for and all thanks to this amazing place and it's staff. We could talk about this place for ever, look no further if you are looking for somewhere to stay this is a must and you won't get any better. This is our favourite place ever and we will definitely be back. We just hope they can fit us in. Thank you for such a amazing stay.

Have you ever travelled some where having high expectations and then been even more delighted at the experience. It happened to us on our 7 day stay at Castello La leccia.
Extraordinary renovation, location and view to die for and hospitality that was caring and natural.

We had the best week ever and vowed to return.

We spent 4 nights at Castello La Leccia in October 2013. The beauty is surreal. The accomodations are top notch. We were welcomed from the moment we drove up to the castle. Make sure you take advantage of the winery tour with Francesco, and the tasting of their wines and olive oil. We did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Room #6. Top floor, corner. It's worth rising early to see the sunrise.

When we reached Castello La Leccia in Tuscany (La Toscana) was almost night in a cloudy evening, it emerged with soft lighting on top of a hill, with a great garden with amazing view of valleys of vineyards and olives.

We were welcomed by owners and front desk girls all were extremely attentive and helpful. Room are great, spacious and comfortable. We were surprised with a bottle of Chianti Clásico produced by them, a basket of fresh fruits and mineral water.

There are well dressed rooms within to seat and read a book from old bookshelves while drinking a glass of wine. Take a walk on the garden and seat there (if weather heps) and relax.

We based our Toscana rides in La Leccia, close to Castellina in Chianti. We were advised to go to a selection of great restaurants and I recommend to follow recommendations from staff, apart of taking time to enjoy great breakfast and dinner in Castello itself, it is very good.

Going to Tuscany? Consider Castello La Leccia for your stay.

Room Tip: There are just a few, pick anyone and you'll enjoy.

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.

The hotel only opened last year which is why there's so little to base your decision on whether to go or not. JUST BOOK IT! My husband and I stayed for 4 nights (Aug 13) and were impressed in every way. The decor and facilities of the rooms, communal areas and outside were flawless and the service was absolutely fantastic. Italy is not known for its service culture but the staff here, every last one of them, go out of their way to ensure you have everything you want and need; for example even if there are only 2 of you at the pool - which is often the case as there are only 12 rooms in total - someone will be down every couple of hours to see if you want water, prosecco...

The restaurant is really great and the view from the terrace is wonderful. The wine is VERY cheap and absolutely delicious - they offer mainly the wines from the estate which are sold at unbelievably good prices (the most expensive I think was €22 and there were some less than €10 plus you can buy it, and the home-produced olive oil to take home) which just goes to highlight how well they treat guests (they could really bump those prices).

The owner takes anyone who wants to go on a tour of the winery and then for a wine tasting every day at 17:30 and gives a background of La Leccia and his family which is also really nice to do.

My husband and I travel really extremely frequently for both business and pleasure and so we do know what makes for a good hotel and this ticks all the boxes. I am honestly at a loss as to anything that could make it better.

Dear Jo,

thank you for all your nice words! The compliments to both our staff and our wines are very much appreciated, since we all work very hard and try very hard to do our best to make our guests’ stay at Castello La Leccia worth remembering and always hoping they will wish to come back here to find, once again, the same lovely and relaxed atmosphere.
As for the wines, winemaking is the soul of our place and we are happy to share our love for it with our guests. For us selling wine is not only selling a glass bottle, we try to offer a sip of our land, hoping to offer a moment of conviviality with the people you love.
Your compliments are especially meaningful to us, as both you and your husband are frequent travelers and have the chance to see and try several accommodations. It is a great pleasure to see that for you we “tick all the boxes” to be a good place to stay! 
We certainly hope to welcome you again with your husband for another wonderful stay with us!
Best Regards
Beatrice Cambioni

I stumbled upon this little gem almost by accident. I only had a glass of wine while the sun set, but the memory will last a lifetime. Lovely atmosphere, great vibes, and an accommodating staff made my (short) time here memorable and interesting.
