I went to the Tuscan countryside with two friends in order to relax and indeed it was relaxing as Locanda Le Piazze turned into a daydream. I’m usually pretty critical but in this case, there is really nothing to say except THANK YOU! A little overview:

Location: in the heart of Tuscany, easy access, 40 minutes from Florence. Close to Siena and San Gimignano.

Setting: a breathtaking view as from our arrival. Vineyards and olive groves as far as you can see, from the restaurant terrace and pool. Typical architecture. Everything is designed, from ultrasonic mosquito repellent for customers to fireflies to brighten up the summer evenings.

Cuisine: Guido, former chef of Bologna, is behind the stove, and in addition to the true taste of fruits and vegetables in Italy, the alliance of modernity and tradition of cooking conquered us (and our stomach, beware + 2kg! J). A sommelier is also here to advise on wines!

Staff: attentive staff all speaking at least English and Italian, each specialized in a third language (German, French, Swedish ...).

Room: intimate (15/20 rooms). Comfort / cozzy (quality bedding in sober colors, exposed beams, view of the Tuscan countryside, a delight at sun dawn). Bathroom with oversized tub and organic bathroom products. Every detail is carefully thought from heated towel rail to bath soft towel provided for the pool.

Amenities: pool perfectly heated (30°c, chilly people will not be afraid to dive!), bicycles available (for the sporty who are used to climb, if not a walk on foot is just as magical).

All in all, the Locanda Le Piazze is a wonderland opened last year by Natacha, the owner, who has a few words for each of its customers (given the success, better to book in advance as rooms are quickly booked!). Sole downside: going back to real life...

Spent a lovely 3 days with my husband in this family runed hotel, where service is discreet and efficient. The rooms are spacious and decorated with a lot of taste with beautiful views from all the windows.
Sun set and sun rise its always different!
Only 30-40 minutes away from most major towns like Florence and Siena.
Do not miss out on the hotels restaurant. Its excellent food and the chef will surprise you, amazing quality food from the region with matching wines that will blow you away.
Will definately be back, thanks again for everything we had a lovely time
Ana & Frank

Room Tip: Reserve to eat at least one night in the hotel restaurant, you will not be dissapointed!

We had a lovely 4 day stay at this hotel. It has obviously been recently remodelled with a lot of care and attention detail. Our bedroom and bathroom were beautifuuly decorated and the room had lots of light.The bed was large, the bedding luxurious. Our room must have been an outbuilding so had the original terracotta lattice tiles over the windows which restricted the view but we had windows on three sides so no lack of light.. The public areas all use typical Tuscan stone and terracotta with flowers everywhere, just what I want from a Tuscan hotel. There are plenty of outdoor areas to sit and read or have a glas of wine, which you do need because only a few of the rooms have a terrace and none have a balcony from what i could see. The pool area and terrace are also immaculate with views of the countryside. We ate at the hotel twice and the food was wonderful, but i have to say im not a gastronome so my view is subjective. It's not cheap to stay there but lovely for a treat, and we found that nothing in Tuscany is cheap! In the interest of balance there were a couple of things to note. It was so quiet you could get bored, it was tumbleweed by the pool no one there all day! And if you like to chat to other guests you might find it difficult they are mainly couples and seem to want privacy. However the staff were really friendly and helpful so that made up for it.

Room Tip: I understand from another guest that a couple of rooms have small windows but im not sure which, i would be very disappointed if I was allocated a room without any view.

Dear Anna,

thank you for your stay with us and for taking the time to describe our hotel and its atmosphere. For exploring lovers, our hotel is the perfect place to relax after the busy days around the Chianti area, but also for the ones who want just to enjoy a glass of Chianti at our pool area, surrounded by vineyards, with beautiful views of the valley.
Till next time, best wishes from all of us!

I can not say enough about this amazing place. Everything was perfect - the view; the hotel - tastefully and lovingly decorated. The food was superb. Nothing better than returning after a "tough" day visiting the hill side towns to enjoy a cold wine at the pool. The staff were superb and; a special mention to Ciara who was an absolute delight.

Room Tip: Try get a balcony room
