I spent 3 nights at La Locanda in September 2016, inbetween a week in Rome and a week in Florence.

Only 4 rooms in the hotel and small sign out front, but believe me, that is not at all a complaint! View from the suite is incredible with views of 270 degrees of the countryside. Room was impeccably clean and modern with excellent and structural integrity despite the centuries of history. Breakfast was more than you could ask for. Hospitality...

Thank goodness we broke our world-travel rule, "We never go back". Italy trip #5 turned into a revisit of favorite places. This time we stayed a week ( to allow more time to explore the area) and stayed in a regular room versus the suite. Basically it was just as awesome as before - perhaps most relaxed than our previous...
