The locanda you'll love
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- A vacation staying in a 14th century medieval hamlet
- Traditional and creative Tuscan cooking
- The towns and countryside of Val di Chiana
Hotel Locanda dell'Amorosa is located in what was once a tiny rural village, occupying a fascinating group of medieval buildings dating back to the 14th century. The hotel is set in the stunningly beautiful Tuscan landscape overlooking the Val di Chiana, situated within easy driving distance of the Tuscan cities of Siena, Arezzo, and Perugia, in a land scattered with small hill top towns such as Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino, known for their production of delectable cheeses, great Tuscan wines and superb extra virgin olive oils.
Guests stay in rooms situated in the old manor house, each with its own particular character and romantic charm. The traditional décor typical of old rural Tuscany, has been cleverly combined with more ornate items of period furniture, fascinating prints and beautiful paintings. A number of the Locanda dell'Amorosa's rooms lead directly out in to the gardens of the hotel. Other rooms enjoy fabulous views of the Sienese countryside or the picturesque quadrangle at the heart of the complex.
A large swimming pool is located in the gardens. In addition to the extensive garden, the hotel is surrounded by its own farmlands, vineyards, olive groves, woods, and fields of corn wheat and sunflowers; offering ample walking territory for those guests wishing to explore the Tuscan countryside.
Ancient buildings once used as the cattle byres for the famous white Chianina cows, have been restored and masterly transformed in the hotel's "Le Coccole dell'Amorosa" restaurant. Here guests are treated to excellent seasonal menus, inspired by the local culinary tradition and the simple but intense flavours of the Mediterranean. Only the very best Tuscan produce is used; the finest cold cuts of Trequanda, Chianina beef and Cinta Senese pork, and fresh vegetables and herbs grown either in the grounds of the estate or by neighbouring farmers. The finest ewe's cheese comes from the hilltop towns of Pienza and Montalcino, while the priceless white truffles are purchased at the world famous truffle auctions of San Giovanni d'Asso.
Those wishing to take something more than a memory of the Locanda dell'Amorosa home with them, might like to purchase an item or two at the hotel's "Osteria" wine bar which stocks a tempting range of traditional products made in the area; from wines such as the legendary Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, to Ricotta and Pecorino cheese, Salami, honey, and fruit conserves. Guess should not miss the opportunity to taste a glass or two or the Locanda dell'Amorosa's own wine; whether the full bodied "Borgo Amorosa" or the lighter "Rosso dell'Amorosa", both perfectly suited to the majority of the dishes served.
The ideal venue for exclusive and intimate events held in the heart of Tuscany, in addition to its outstanding location and irreproachable service, the Locanda dell'Amorosa also has a well equipped meeting room with a seating capacity for 40.
