We spent one night in Palazzo Leopoldo, and agree with previous positive reviews. The property is excellent, Radda is a pretty place in the middle of beautiful Chianti country. On top of this, the day we arrived the town had the first medieval festival of its own. The experience was absolutely thrilling. Definitely recommend this hotel and the town.

My wife & I travelled to Radda at the end of June, and used Radda as our base to explore Chianti & Tuscany.

The Palazzo Leopoldo was perfect. Our room (#9) at the top of the stairs was great - we had a large separate sitting area with an armoire that doubled as a small kitchenette with a small fridge. The bedroom had a nice comfortable king bed. The views from the room were amazing looking out across the rolling hills of vineyards, farms, and forest. Breakfast was very good with a selection of different cereals, pastries, yougurt, and scrambled eggs plus a variety of fruits and juice... not to mention wonderful espresso. We sat out on the terace every day for breakfast - fantastic setting, great weather.. Could not have been better.
The staff were wonderful - very helpful and responded to each and every request in a friendly and professional manner.

We also signed up for cooking lessons - they are held Wednesday nights at the hotel and they bring in a chef to teach the class. One other couple joined the class with us - it was a lot of fun showing my complete lack of cooking skill... the meal turned out to be perfect... thank goodness for our Chef Paula, and sous-chef Jimmie. We made appetizers from Roma tomatoes, Rizzotto, Chicken and Peach Souffle. Dinner was served out on the Terrace - the perfect setting to another wonderful day in Chianti.

We took a hiking tour thru Chianti which was also a treat. We hiked 4.7 Miles, 900 ft up and then 900ft down. There were a tremendous number of wild flowers (lavender, poppies,….) Wild herbs (fennel, rosemary…). The views were amazing. At one point were were able to see Radda in the distance to the north, and Siena in the distance to the south. Our guide made the hike engaging with all sorts of facts about the area, the people, the food, wine and history...

Radda is central to many of the sights in Chianti - less than an hour to Siena (a must see), 90 minutes to Lucca (another great medieval town), and an hour to Firenze. We had a rental car, and brought our own GPS (Garmin) which we updated with Italian sw - this worked perfectly even thru the small towns.

There are a fair number of small restaurants in Radda - every meal and selection of wine were wonderful.

If you're headed to Tuscany - Radda and the Palazzo Leopoldo is the place to go

a converted palazzo right in the heart of Radda, a perfect little town to use as a base for exploring. Our room was a glorious suite (i booked a deluxe double so not sure why we had this room), the breakfast spread is very generous, and the location cant be beat....highly recommended

My husband an I shared a wonderful experience at the Palazzo Leopold. Sylvia and her staff made us feel so welcomed and were extremely reponsive to any of our needs. Although we didn't have a rental car, their recommendations for local transportation and private vineyard tours were just what we wanted. The accomadations were outstanding, food was excellent and plentiful. We look forward to our next visit with our children. Anne and Mike Colleary Naples,Florida

This was our second stay at Palazzo Leopoldo (this time with family too). It's located right in the centre of the beautiful town of Radda and in close proximity to anything you could want to see or do in town. It's an authentic old building and the rooms are spacious and typically Tuscan. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a slight issue with our hot water on the second day of our stay but were provided with an alternative room to shower in whilst they arranged for maintenance to visit. Overall a very pleasant stay and we'd certainly go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and larger windows to the rear of the building
