Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia UNESCO heritage site may well be the most perfect slice of the most perfect part of Italy. Lying just south of Siena, this ancient valley of gently rolling hills and scenic villages can feel blissfully timeless, its rich history and natural splendor exquisitely preserved.
Locanda in Tuscany is a perfect location for an authentic luxury experience with no bling, for those looking for a relaxing holiday away from the noise of the city and surrounded just by the Tuscan nature. It is an intimate and immersive experience of the beauty and vitality of life in the region, with a focus on sustainable and organic principles, from the paints used throughout the property to the mini-bar selections to the food and wine offerings at the restaurant.
The building is a private country mansion from the XVII century totally renovated in respect to the Tuscan tradition and in authentic country chic style. Each one of the nine rooms is an oasis crafted from traditional elements like brick floors, wood-beam ceilings, exposed stone walls, harmonious colors, and antique furnishings.
This resort is a labor of love for owners Luca and Claudia Bernetti, who upon deciding to open a hotel asked themselves: “What is the luxury world missing today?” They knew a magnificent property with breathtaking views would not be enough. The Bernettis wanted their guests to fall in love. Locanda was the place where that could happen, where they could offer visitors a gift to carry in their hearts forever.
