How to Get There
We just returned from our stay at Locanda in Tuscany where we received the best service and attention of any hotel we've ever stayed at in our travels. Vladimir was an extraordinary host, making sure that every aspect of our stay was perfect, and his recommendations for what to do and where to eat in the area were 100% spot on. He went the extra mile in every aspect of our stay. Marika asked the amazing pastry chef to make my husband his favorite biscotti, and left them in our room as a surprise. The wonderful chef Davida not only cooked gluten free pasta for me, when my husband came down with a cold, he made him a handmade consome soup that was amazing. Katia, in the restaurant, went out of her way for us, and the food at Taverna di Mozart was fabulous (thanks Davida!). Every morning the staff made me a fresh blended fruit drink from fruit and vegetables I picked out of a basket. We've stayed many places but rarely have we found this level of graciousness and service. The housekeeping service, Keba, was amazing. And all of this in one of the most beautiful and quiet and luxurious spots in the world. We will be back again. Thank you Locanda for a breathtaking 25th Wedding Anniversary trip!
We loved staying at Locanda. The setting was so beautiful it was almost surreal. The room was very clean and confortable. The breakfast was delicious (the food and wine at their restaurant incredible as well). The service was exceptional... We highly recommend visiting this place !!
The drive to reach Locanda is surrounded by beautiful farms and rolling hills to set the mood for your arrival at Locanda. Once there, the staff was incredibly gracious including a welcome beverage of warm homemade tea. We stayed in the double deluxe room Our room was spacious, clean and had a comfortable bed. The shower, though, was interesting as it had no curtain in the bathroom and the shower head would fall off of the wall easily and spray the entire bathroom. Seems like installing a shower curtain could solve this problem.
The staff were knowledgeable about the area and gave great recommendations for local sites and restaurants. The breakfast was fantastic with a variety of options. We ate in the restaurant one of the evenings and the food was high quality and reflective of local dishes. Tatia, one of the staff in the restaurant, is amazingly helpful and always has a smile.
The resort is quiet. May not be a good place to bring kids as most of the guests are couples looking for a relaxing holiday.
