“What a great spot!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

My husband and I spent four nights at Locanda Al Colle in May 2013. The location is perfect, along a quiet country road, but close to civilization and to the highway, so that it is a convenient base for visiting Viareggio, Pietrasanta, Lucca, Pisa, and the Cinque Terre. We especially enjoyed a daytrip to the Carrara marble quarries.

Riccardo is a welcoming host with good advice on restaurants and the local area. The breakfast is delicious and freshly-prepared.

The grounds are beautiful with many areas to sit in the sun or shade. The common areas feature works by local artists. Our room (one of the lower-priced) was stylish and comfortable, and the bathroom had a great shower.

We thoroughly enjoyed the dinners prepared by a local chef, offered two nights per week. Served on the lovely terrace, the food was excellent, and it was a good opportunity to meet and converse with other guests.

We highly recommend Locanda Al Colle and look forward to returning. Thanks, Riccardo, for a great stay!

It is difficult to describe concisely how amazing our experience at Locanda al Colle was. We stayed for 7 nights in the Colle Suite, which is stunningly designed, with a gorgeous private pergola, the most comfortable four-poster bed, a superb rainfall shower and amazing views over the rolling hills of Camaiore.

Riccardo and Arianna go above and beyond what is expected of a host/hostess to make your experience homely and personal. We really enjoyed the sociable 4-course dinners that take place twice weekly, and met some lovely people. The heated swimming pool is just another perfect method of relaxing in these peaceful surroundings.

The local towns of Pietrasanta, Forte di Marmi and Lucca are delightful. The cuisine and Chianti probably are the best we've sampled in the world. We would advise on renting a car, we used this daily. Riccardo and Arianna recommended some excellent restaurants - our favourites were La Dogana and Osteria Candalla.

This is a wonderful place and ranks top amongst the best of all the luxury hotels and boutiques that we have visited across the globe. Thank you Riccardo & Arianna, we will see you again for sure! Joseph & Carly.

There is nothing I don't like about this hotel. I chose Locanda al Colle because of the description on the Mr.and Mrs.Smith website, and the hotel was actually more beautiful than it appears in the photographs.
Locanda al Colle is really special, not just for the environment and the decor and the unusual set up, but because of the service from Riccardo and Arianna - nothing is too much trouble, and their recommendations for restaurants and bars are spot on. My trip was to celebrate a significant birthday with friends and on the Saturday night, my actual birthday, we ate in the hotel - which the staff made truly memorable.
One piece of advice - if you are planning a short trip, you really don't need a hire car - it took twice as long to pick up our car as it did to drive to the hotel! The hotel serves breakfast, and lunch is available every day (on request), and twice a week they serve dinner. There are good restaurants within walking distance and the town of Pietrasanta with its many bars and restaurants is only a short taxi journey away. The hotel can organise a car to collect you from the airport

If you want beauty, tranquility and overall excellence of care, this is the place to stay. Arianna and Riccardo could not have been more accommodating. And forget your guidebooks, take Arianna's recommendations on the local restos. This s a gem of an inn.

If I had a home in Tuscany...if I could afford a hilltop villa with a swimming pool....and if I could have a professional chef cook all my meals...my life would be like a holiday at this guesthouse run by Riccardo and Arianna at Locanda al Colle. After 3 days as Riccardo's guest, I would highly recommend this place. We had a lovely room with a view of the hills, and enjoyed the warm atmosphere here. The whole place is tastefully decorated and feels like home. We had 2 dinners at the guesthouse - both 4-course meals (excluding dessert) with great wines - and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Evenings were peaceful, quiet and cool. We slept well in very comfortable beds. We'll be back!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at this luxurious boutique bed and breakfast last summer. Stunningly furnished, Riccardo and his team were the perfect hosts always willing to help, advise on where to visit and tempt us with delicious food. We are only sorry we could not stay for an evening meal. Already looking forward to our next visit!

My husband and 25 year old son (returning from teaching in Vietnam) spent 2 nights here. We were one of the last guests of the season before they closed for a few months. My business in the US is in a resort town so I know how you feel at the end of a season- burnt out. But Riccardo and Arriana couldn't have been more friendlier and helpful than it being the first week of a tourist season starting when you are full of energy. Riccardo sent us to wonderful restaurants with true character and great meals. We left them wanting more of the area, with their guidance and suggestions on what to do.
