“Amazing and Unique Experience!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Although the location is somewhat remote this B &B is far and above the best of any that we have stayed in.
Upon arrival you are made to feel like returning family and the care and attention to all details is perfect. All of our needs were anticipated and the service was so very personalized, we know why their guests return year after year.
The views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular, and breakfast on the patio was the start of many wonderful days in the Chianti region.
Guido was most helpful in assisting us to plan each day and his recommendations were excellent.
This is a very special host and hostess who are committed to their guests and wonderful holidays!
We also look forward to our next visit like so many other of their returning guests.

Five minutes after our arrival at La Locanda on September 16, 2013 we felt we were at the home of a long lost relative. I cannot say enough about our hosts Guido and Martina, we will return. La Locanda is remotely located in the hills of Tuscany with a magnificent vista of the beautiful medieval town of Volpaia and the surrounding Tuscan country side. However; it was minutes from everything. La Laconda is a magnificent restored medieval farmhouse. The rooms are immaculate, spacious with all amenities. We stayed for 6 days and were sorry we had to leave. The breakfast was special and the dinners were excellent.

I can only echo the positive comments by all the other reviewers. Martina and Guido are wonderful hosts and the location is spectacular. My wife and I and four friends spent 5 nights at La Locanda in mid September. It is perfectly located to tour all the surrounding towns and vineyards and Guido and Martina have great recommendations of what to see and do and where to eat. The daily 7:00pm prosecco and appetizers was a great opportunity to meet other travellers and share experiences and ideas about what to see and do in Chianti. The on site meals offered 3 nights per week are delicious and great fun... Be sure to enjoy the lemoncello and grappa on the patio after dinner...we look forward to our next visit!

My wife and I stayed in Room #5 at La Locanda for 6 nights for our honeymoon, and unfortunately we are still suffering withdrawal symptoms since we left La Locanda. What an incredible place...

We woke up every morning to an amazing view of the hillsides of Chianti...we were lucky to have 7 days of beautiful weather. Echoing all the prior reviews, this is truly a hidden gem and the ideal place to unplug/go off the grid, and just soak under the Tuscan sun. Proprietors Martina & Guido are incredibly warm and welcoming, and we thoroughly enjoyed not only their hospitality but their home cook meal on a Wednesday evening. Both Martina & Guido went the extra mile to ensure a relaxing/tranquil stay at La Locanda, and were incredibly well-informed and helpful when we visited the surrounding hillside towns e.g. Volpaia, Greve, Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, Volterra, Asciano, etc.

One of their best, most memorable recommendations was taking a cooking class/wine tour with Giovanna Stianti at Castello di Volpaia. We had an absolutely wonderful and fun time learning from Giovanna!

My husband and I spent the last week of our honeymoon at La Locanda and it was just perfect. The hotel is located in a beautiful, secluded spot just outside Volpaia and the view from the terrace is breath-taking. Martina and Guido, the owners, were so lovely and made us feel so welcome and were so helpful when it came to booking restaurants and giving directions to places. We were really made to feel so special and particularly enjoyed the glass of prosecco on the terrace every evening whilst watching the sun go down. I would also highly recommend the home dinner that Guido and Martina cook themselves on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Tiramasu, in particular, was delicious. All in all, this is a magical place and I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit the area.

We stayed three nights in early September and it was magnificant. Although the way to the hotel is a small adventure, it emphasizes the special character of this beautiful place in Toscani. What you get are the ameneties of a high class hotel with a country side character. Breakfast is simple but you will miss nothing. The rooms are spacious, clean and cosy and witness of the good taste of the hosts. Guido and Martina are fabulous hosts that help you with every aspect of your travel and restaurant recommendation and reservation. They even ask you pro-actively because it can be quite easy to forget about dinner once you are caught by the silence and peace of this place with one of the best views in Chianti. It's worth the $.

My boyfriend and I spent a few nights at La Locanda towards the end of our 4 week holiday through Europe. La Locanda is a lovely secluded B&B type retreat - there are only 7 rooms, so its a very tranquil holiday spot. We would wake early, enjoy a lovely breakfast (with delicious home made coffee), spend half the day day-trippng and come back around 2 or 3 to sit by the pool / swim. We'd head back to our room and get ready for the 7 pm prosecco and nibbles before heading out to one of the local restaurants for dinner. Fabulous! Guido and Martina are very friendly and helpful (eg booking restaurants, sightseeing recommendations) and make you feel very welcome. We are planning on going back when we're in Europe next year.
