Stayed here for three nights during a recent break to see Andrea Bocelli in Lajatico. La Locanda is cosy, nothing overly fancy, but had a great large shower and bathroom area, wifi isn't powerful so do your research before you go, staff did all they could to help, even preparing a picnic breakfast as we were leaving at 5am on our last day. Room was spotless and towels changed each day, breakfast a good choice of cereals, teas, coffees etc, boiled eggs, fruit, plenty for anybody. its in a perfect spot just inside the city walls, no parking at the premises itself, there is a pay and display just about 2 mins away, costing 18euros a day, and another free car park, about 5 mins walk. Volterra is a beautiful area to discover, and although there were plenty of tourists there during our time, i felt totally safe going around sightseeing and browsing alone whilst hubby rested from the sun, many locals speak some English, which helps those who haven't got their phrase book. the restaurant linked to hotel locanda in the main square filled a stop gap on our first night, but there are many other wonderful eateries. Off the beaten track, about an hours car drive from Pisa on a direct, but very windy, road. Hotel is worth a return visit.
