The room, the dinner, the people, the views
November 11, 2014
It is hard to describe the magnificence of this facility which is the result of a 5 year renovation by the owners who have owned it since 1920 thru 3 generations (originally built in the 1300’s as a fortress to defend Florence from Sienna). My wife and I stayed 5 days at the end of a 17 day trip that included Rome and Venice. This was a great wind down after the city experience of those places. The multiple villages within a short driving distance with the breathtaking countryside views were fantastic. A great thanks to Julian (the elder owner), Francesca (his son), Alice (Manager I think), and Josepe (the dining room manager). These people make you feel right at home and are the friendliest people you can possibly meet. We will dream and hope we can afford to travel back to Italy someday so we can stay here again.

The room is outstanding. We stayed just one night but we could stay all our trip. Amazing View. Well located if you want to explore the Chianti area. The owner is passioned about producing wine and available to a oriented visit to his winery and tasting. The best Chianti Classico (Grand Selezione) we've ever tried. Would definitely come back.

The location is beautiful. The grounds are so well kept and it is breath taking. We arrived and were created and treated to a glass of wine in the garden. We had a wonderful stay. The family and staff are so welcoming. The food in the restaurant was the best we had in our travels throughout Italy.

leaving the place.
the kindness of the staff, the perfect condition of every single detail (never seen before in Italy), the location on a hill between Siena and Florence, and the good taste of the owner, perpetuating the style of centuries while offering todays standard at the same time.

Liked every thing.
The location, the history of the Castello, the staff, the food, etc, etc, were exceptional. Francesco and his staff treated us like family. We hated to leave and cannot wait to return. It's a special place.

Everything is perfect. Owner and all staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is located on the hill with panoramic view of Tuscany. Everything in the hotel is very beautiful, new and clean. There is a big bottle of wine as a complementary in your room. The hotel restaurant is also very good, food and wine are pretty delicious with reasonable price.

It seems mean to criticise anything at this wonderful place, but dinner would have been perfect with freshly-made bread.
We're not a young couple, but found Castello La Leccia to be an ideal place for a honeymoon. Staff were wonderful.

Having travelled Italy for more than 15 years we have experienced many fantastic hotels. La Leccia is a standout. The historic castello has been modernized to impeccable standards without destroying the charm and beauty of past generations. The panoramic views are breath taking. The staff are there to please you from the moment of arrival until you depart. Breakfast is abundant, consisting of nearly everything being made in-house or locally sourced. Evening meals are sumptuous. Would I return? In a heartbeat. Would I recommend this property to my dearest of friends. You bet!

Castello La Leccia is one of those rare properties you visit in your lifetime that you know you will never forget. A beautifully situated and designed boutique hotel with an exceptional attention to detail - perfectly marrying modern and traditional design elements within the historic castle structure. What makes this property really unique however is its provenance and the owners clear passion to bring the very best of Castello La Leccia, Castellina in Chianti and Tuscany to its guests. The owners who manage the property and its vineyard and their wonderful team strive to make every moment of your stay a pleasure whilst keeping a perfect distance to let you enjoy the serenity of the surroundings. There are many places in the region to dine but make sure you experience dinner on the terrace at Castello La Leccia. The fare is carefully chosen and wonderfully local and your host will match it perfectly with a wine from their own vineyard or further afield. We wished we could have stayed longer at Castello La Leccia but we know we will return.

I may try for a hundred years, I won't find anything not to like.
A fantastic location in the chianti hills with easy access ( by car ) to Florence, Siena and all the beauties of Tuscany. It is a small castle producing its own wine offering great food and breathtaking views .

This place is amazing! You don't want to leave. The staff were fantastic! The food was awesome!

The castello and grounds were absolutely stunning. As were the staff who were very accommodating to our needs. We would go back in a heart beat.

Superb place and excellent staff. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone who wants to have a few days in a very special place. Amazing.

There is nothing I didn't like. I took a long, accidental detour cross-country when I thought I was on the 4KM hiking trail around Castello La Leccia. But that was my fault and I got additional guidance from the staff for my next try.
Castello La Leccia is as beautiful as the photos. Even great photos can't capture the feeling of being there: peaceful, beautiful setting and scenery, elegantly updated. However, what makes it so special is the staff. We were checked in by Laura and she gave us a complete tour of the grounds, the common areas and our beautiful room. I didn't get the names of the other front desk staff--but found them and Laura so friendly and helpful our whole stay with local information. We planned 3 days stay, but after the first night we knew this was not enough. Fortunately, our room was available for 2 additional nights before the next guest and we changed our travel plans to stay longer. Breakfast is beautiful. Fresh fruit, yogurt, cheeses, salumi, fresh juices. Coffee made to order. Dinner on the pea-gravel terrace with the amazing views featured wonderful dishes--all served by Giuseppe. He was professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes and the wine. We did the wine tour one evening before dinner with Salvatore, the owner. I enjoyed his narrative--very humbly describing how he "tries" to make wine. Of course the wine is excellent and well rated. The 2 bottles we took home are a treasure. We had a room with a separate entrance and a private terrace. Very well appointed, elegantly decorated. The pool area is on a lower terrace with spectacular views. Plenty of quality loungers including 2 sets under permanent shade pergolas. I hope to go back someday.

Everything about this place is perfection. This was my first time in Tuscany. We were traveling with our two adult daughters, taking them on a special trip before they start post bachelor degree programs. My husband and I have have travelled extensively and stayed in our share of high end hotels. I can say, without a doubt, this is one of our top 2 all-time favorite places. I can not even begin to describe the beauty and serenity offered by Castello Laleccia. Even before we got there, the staff and owner himself catered to our every need. They answered my planning emails promptly and kindly, with grace and efficiency. I already felt like they went above and beyond before we ever got on the plane to Italy! Upon arrival, We were greeted by the most warm and welcoming group of professionals. Francesco himself carried in our luggage, while Alice gave us a tour of all the rooms and facilities, explaining every detail of the property from the owners philosophy toward his guests, to the green features which are so seamlessly employed in every aspect of the running of the property, to the lengthy amenities offered. The ground are stunning. The smells and colors and views and food and staff and atmosphere are second to none. We felt like royalty and truly did not ever want to leave. The only negative was that we were only booked for 2 nights. Next time, I will plan my whole stay here.
