“Wonderful”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Loved this place, very charming staff, beautiful interior with chic decorations, a very nice restaurant, breathtaking surroundings and a panoramic view to die for from the pool. I long to come back, we had such a pleasant stay here and although there was some misunderstandings from their side: I emailed them about my gluten intolerance a few weeks before our stay and also that I would like a prosecco to our room for my husband's birthday - which none was fulfilled - but I feel like the over all experience compensated it all.

This place is great for couples looking for relaxation, perfect for exploring chiantishire, the old towns and vineyards.

We had an amazing time at this beautiful place - the interior decoration and attention to detail is unlike anything we've seen anywhere in Italy so far and we have traveled extensively. I am SO glad I ignored fact it wasn't listed in top 6 The photos are exactly as is and We are only sad we had just one night. The hotel has just been completely upgraded - grounds, rooms, pool and pool deck is incredible as is the view!!! Entire staff was wonderful. We met Natasha the owner who is French, an interior designer and it is apparent thats why this place is so special. The food was wonderful. We planned on salad only as stuffed full from a cooking class elsewhere that am but the smell of chefs food lured us and we ordered food after all on beautiful outside patio had an amazing baked cod that was so delicate it melted in our mouths. Who could think cod would be adore in Italy?! There's even an honor bar within this sparking clean Tuscan retreat ( hmmm restoration hardware meets Tuscany ) but some of the artwork and the driftwood tables and art pieces were made and overseen by the owner which was lovely. Because its been designed as a home, it is luxurious yet warm. Thank you !!

We had a great stay at Le Piazze - with a car, the location is perfect for visiting the key cities and sites within Tuscany, but it can be hard to leave the poolside with its fantastic views. Service from waiters was very friendly. Food was for the most part excellent - we had one disappointing dish in 4 meals, which can be forgiven - the rest was fantastic.
The only reason I've not given Le Piazze an "Excellent" is the price - at this price it provided everything we expect, rather than anything above and beyond.

I am so pleased we decided to spent six nights at this property. Location is great for visiting Florence and Siena as well as some wonderful small old towns nearby. The setting is superb with views that go on forever. Rooms are fresh and light. Staff do a wonderful job of making you feel at home as well as providing an excellent standard of service. Pool is lovely for relaxing. Restaurant is fantastic. Dinner was always delicious. We were travelling with a lively five year old who was looked after wonderfully by the entire team. I have already recommended this property to friends. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back...

We stayed two nights at Locanda Le Piazze in September 2013 for our honeymoon. We absolutely loved everything about this hotel. First of all, service was excellent! Everyone was very attentive to our needs, the waiting staff by the pool was very responsive, and everyone was friendly! It was a nice touch to chat to the owners who are very involved in the daily operations of the hotel.

The view from anywhere is breath-taking - but our favourite was the pool area. The pictures don't even really do it justice, you have to see it in person. The area is quiet and excellent for relaxation!

The hotel itself is chic and luxuriously decorated. It is obvious that great care was taken when it came to purchasing the interior furnishings. Some of the furniture is quite unique-looking, which gives the hotel overall an even more elegant image.

We had one dinner at the hotel; we thought the menu was a bit limited (especially for vegetarians...but that is mostly the case throughout Tuscany) but the value overall was good. Service at dinner was, again, excellent and the house wine was delicious (hard not to, the hotel being in the Chianti area!). The dinner itself was good -- we couldn't find something we really wanted on the menu, so that was a bit disappointing. We did like what we ended up ordering, but probably wouldn't have eaten there another time due to lack of choice.

We had a bit of trouble finding the hotel, but the receptionist actually called us to check in on our status and gave us excellent directions. It's fun driving through the vineyards on the windy road, though for us it limited our night time restaurant options as we did not want to travel at night. Castellina in Chianti is just a quick drive away!

My one recommendation to the hotel would be regarding the breakfast: I am vegetarian and I don't eat croissants/bread in the morning...that really left nothing left to eat on the breakfast buffet other than fruit salad. I ordered eggs as a source of protein, and I was shocked to see that I was charged 5 euros for these upon checkout. Your hotel is luxurious and otherwise perfect; I would suggest offering some hot items as part of the breakfast buffet (perhaps eggs plus one hot meat... bacon, sausages, etc.), included in the price of a night's stay.

We would stay here again in a heart-beat, and are looking forward to a mini-weekend trip to this paradise get-away in the future. Would highly recommend to others travelling in this area.

Dear Nadja,

thank you for your nice review and for your suggestions.
We will take them into consideration in order to offer more items to vegeterian people, and we will organize the setting of the buffet so that extra charges are more clear.
We will be waiting for your next visit and in the meantime we send our warmest greetings

We recently went to Chianti for a wedding, and stayed at this hotel. It was our first trip with our little one, 6 weeks at the time. They were very accommodating, the owners were super nice to us and our baby's needs.

We stayed there with about 8 other friends who were coming to the wedding too, and we had the best time by the pool, chilling and just enjoying the amazing view.

The food was lovely and all waiting staff were really really nice! The only reason why I am not rating excellent, is because we all experience some funny treatment from the english receptionist, she was rather rude with a few of our group and made us feel very uncomfortable.

Apart from this woman, everything else was superb!

Thank you so much for making our trip such a treat.

Room Tip: All of our group were scattered around the hotel, and I think each one of the rooms was pretty aweso...
