“The best part of our Italian trip”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We travelled across Italy for 4 weeks, and our stay in La Leccia was definitely the major highlight. Absolutely stunning landscape, luxurious interiors and exteriors (designed by a leading architect from Florence), excellent staff, exquisite restaurant, the list goes on and on, I just can't praise them enough. We stayed there for 5 nights. Initially, we booked a basic room (it is an expensive place, but worth every cent). For my birthday we were given a free upgrade to a very spacious suite without asking for it. We always like new experience and normally do not stay in the same place twice, but this place we would go back to any time. A big thank you to everyone for providing such a memorable experience!

Dear VG3105,

Thank you for your excellent review and kind words. We are very pleased to know we have been your highlight of your trip to Italy.
We never get tired of the beautiful panorama from our garden. The attentive care of details of our interiors and exteriors let the guests feel at home and we are really happy when they can feel and appreciate it.
Staff is genuine as our cuisine and we think are the perfect Tuscan recipe for an unforgettable stay.
We hope to see you again soon at Castello La Leccia!
Warm regards

Castello La Leccia was everything I expected and more. I was blown away with the amount of effort and attention to detail in the renovation. And I cannot say enough about all the staff who were perfect!

The room was beautiful (#12) and had it's own private terrace. Lovely bathroom with wonderful shower. We needed a shower chair for my spouse (with a back problem) and that was delivered within an hour. So that's the level of service provided here.

The grounds are equally beautiful with views over an amazing range. Siena can be seen in the distance. Quiet and relaxing and you could happily do nothing - sit around the lovely pool, read under a tree, or just gaze over the Chianti countryside. I was very pleased with the limit on children and it makes the place a very quiet, peaceful retreat.

Staff had great recommendations on restaurants in local area. We did eat in the dining room our last night and actually felt "why did we leave on the other nights?" It was excellent. Limited offerings but certainly right up our alley. Breakfast was a wonderful experience as well. Sitting out on the back garden in the wonderful Tuscan sun. Very memorable.

The wine tour by the owner was fabulous. His passion for making wine was very energizing. It's a relatively short tour - thank goodness (for those of us who have gone on the long ones). Then the tasting was a fun experience with the other guests who joined. Lovely tasting room.

This place is a jewel and a reasonable value. I would definitely go back based on our lovely experience. We spent three nights and could have enjoyed it for a lot longer!

Room Tip: We had room #12, which doesn't have much of a view but the terrace is great. Very private with...

Dear Gewizz,

Thank you for your review, I am really pleased for all the details that you have noted. Believe me if I tell you that the renovation is a never ending story! We dedicate the same passion and love that we have for our vineyards to improve the quality of our service. This is my Home and I want to share with you and all my guests my true love for this Land. Regarding our Restaurant my choice is to have a limited menu but changing every day our offer depending upon the fresh ingredients that the Chef is able to find at the local Market. A true taste of Tuscany! I really hope that you may come back again so that you will be able to visit all the hidden gems in the beautiful countryside of Chianti.



I wish you all my Best

Francesco

We stayed here for our honeymoon back in September and I am so sorry it has taken me so long to write this. This really is the best place we have ever stayed. It is just amazing, the castle and grounds are stunning beyond belief the views are spectacular. We would often enjoy an afternoon tea or glass of Prosecco at the pool or in the gardens enjoying the beautiful views. The rooms and décor of the place is outstanding it is done with pure class and attention to detail, there is nothing more you could need here, it is just PERFECT. We would like to say huge thank you to all the staff they could not have been more helpful giving us tips on where to go and giving us really helpful advice. The service was just out of this world they could not do enough for us. We would like to say a special thank you to Alice and Beatrice who were so helpful and friendly they were delightful and really went out of their way to make our stay special. Also a thank you to Rafaella for the delicious food and excellent service. This was the best honeymoon we could have possibly hoped for and all thanks to this amazing place and it's staff. We could talk about this place for ever, look no further if you are looking for somewhere to stay this is a must and you won't get any better. This is our favourite place ever and we will definitely be back. We just hope they can fit us in. Thank you for such a amazing stay.

Have you ever travelled some where having high expectations and then been even more delighted at the experience. It happened to us on our 7 day stay at Castello La leccia.
Extraordinary renovation, location and view to die for and hospitality that was caring and natural.

We had the best week ever and vowed to return.

We spent 4 nights at Castello La Leccia in October 2013. The beauty is surreal. The accomodations are top notch. We were welcomed from the moment we drove up to the castle. Make sure you take advantage of the winery tour with Francesco, and the tasting of their wines and olive oil. We did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Room #6. Top floor, corner. It's worth rising early to see the sunrise.

When we reached Castello La Leccia in Tuscany (La Toscana) was almost night in a cloudy evening, it emerged with soft lighting on top of a hill, with a great garden with amazing view of valleys of vineyards and olives.

We were welcomed by owners and front desk girls all were extremely attentive and helpful. Room are great, spacious and comfortable. We were surprised with a bottle of Chianti Clásico produced by them, a basket of fresh fruits and mineral water.

There are well dressed rooms within to seat and read a book from old bookshelves while drinking a glass of wine. Take a walk on the garden and seat there (if weather heps) and relax.

We based our Toscana rides in La Leccia, close to Castellina in Chianti. We were advised to go to a selection of great restaurants and I recommend to follow recommendations from staff, apart of taking time to enjoy great breakfast and dinner in Castello itself, it is very good.

Going to Tuscany? Consider Castello La Leccia for your stay.

Room Tip: There are just a few, pick anyone and you'll enjoy.
