La Locanda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband and I spent the last week of our honeymoon at La Locanda and it was just perfect. The hotel is located in a beautiful, secluded spot just outside Volpaia and the view from the terrace is breath-taking. Martina and Guido, the owners, were so lovely and made us feel so welcome and were so helpful when it came to booking restaurants and giving directions to places. We were really made to feel so special and particularly enjoyed the glass of prosecco on the terrace every evening whilst watching the sun go down. I would also highly recommend the home dinner that Guido and Martina cook themselves on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Tiramasu, in particular, was delicious. All in all, this is a magical place and I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit the area.

We stayed three nights in early September and it was magnificant. Although the way to the hotel is a small adventure, it emphasizes the special character of this beautiful place in Toscani. What you get are the ameneties of a high class hotel with a country side character. Breakfast is simple but you will miss nothing. The rooms are spacious, clean and cosy and witness of the good taste of the hosts. Guido and Martina are fabulous hosts that help you with every aspect of your travel and restaurant recommendation and reservation. They even ask you pro-actively because it can be quite easy to forget about dinner once you are caught by the silence and peace of this place with one of the best views in Chianti. It's worth the $.

My boyfriend and I spent a few nights at La Locanda towards the end of our 4 week holiday through Europe. La Locanda is a lovely secluded B&B type retreat - there are only 7 rooms, so its a very tranquil holiday spot. We would wake early, enjoy a lovely breakfast (with delicious home made coffee), spend half the day day-trippng and come back around 2 or 3 to sit by the pool / swim. We'd head back to our room and get ready for the 7 pm prosecco and nibbles before heading out to one of the local restaurants for dinner. Fabulous! Guido and Martina are very friendly and helpful (eg booking restaurants, sightseeing recommendations) and make you feel very welcome. We are planning on going back when we're in Europe next year.

We stayed at La Locanda on the last part of our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The setting and views are stunning, a real escape. Guido and his wife Martina make you feel very at home, taking care of reataurant bookings, any help you need there. It is so much more personal. We came to la locanda from having stayed in some of the best hotels in Italy 5* resorts our travel agent recommended - from the overall experience this was our favorite place and we will without a doubt be back.

Breakfast is simple but all you need,

Book a wine tasting tour at Volpaia in the village.

My husband and I have just returned from La Locanda and we both loved it. The garden is truly beautiful and we were lucky with timing because the lavender was still there and the scent is so gorgeous. It was so lovely and tranquil there that we decided to spend half our days at the hotel, and only half wondering around to other villages/ towns.
The location is perfect. An hour from Sienna so a day trip is easy, and also other places like San Gimignano and a lot more.
The village of Volpaia is a 15 minute walk through the woods, so in the evening, if you wish to enjoy wine and therefore not drive, this is a perfect option.
There's so much to do that you will not be stuck for ideas. Martina and Guido will help in any case. They are wonderful hosts. Thank you both for a wonderful stay. We look forward to seeing you again.

If there is a farmhouse, you want to stay in which feels just like home, then this place owned by Martina and Guido is it! It is blissful, it is quiet, it is romantic, it is not only beautiful but is breathtaking to wake up and see the rolling hills of Chianti! One day there was an ounce of fog just hanging in mid air in the hills. Martina prepared dinner, which she graciously does 3 times week, and the Risotto was out of this world and the wild boar was delicious! After dinner talks with other guests from the 7 rooms in the hotel are interesting after the few drinks from Guido. It feels like home away from home with amazing breakfast location, lovely hills and gracious hosts. Breakfast is just right, rooms are spacious and with modern amenities and the stay is very memorable including finding this remote location but getting lost in Tuscany is so much fun that you want to do it again and again! Brilliant place and will surely do it again.

Room Tip: Just leave it to the hosts and you will be well taken care of, need I say more.

My wife and I spent two nights at La Locanda at the end of May. This was the final stay of a two week trip which included The St Regis in Rome, Grand Bretagne in Athens and Perivolas in Santorini. I only mention these fine hotels to put into context the fact that I felt the most relaxed I felt over the two weeks at Guido and Martina's lovely country hotel. I had asked my wife (chief researcher for our trips) to find somewhere 'quiet and remote', and La Locanda is definitely that. After a lengthy trip by car from Naples we arrived with Guido telling us that he had made dinner reservations for us and would call the restaurant to push back the reservation, allowing us to join Guido for a pre dinner Prosecco. Dinner that night in the tiny village (population 37) of Volpaia was incredible. Guido's local knowledge and contacts really enabled us to maximize the short time we had in Chianti, and our one regret is the short amount of time we had to enjoy the hotel and Guido, particularly his home made limoncello!
Guido really is a perfect host in an incredible setting and we are already trying to figure out how we can get back next year for at least a week.
