Eco-friendly Hotel in Tuscany
Locanda Le Piazze, your 4 star boutique hotel in Tuscany, is a former farmhouse dating from 1540. It sits among the soft hills of the commune of Castellina in Chianti, surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and cypresses.
Since acquiring the hotel in spring, 2013, the owners have set out to create an exceptional boutique hotel, based on the property’s genuine historic charm. The building interior and the grounds have been renovated extensively, drawing on the skills and experience of talented local artisans and technicians.
The result is simple elegance, a stylish and relaxed environment to help guests break free from daily toils and pressures; a refreshing experience to be pampered in an inviting, cozy and welcoming atmosphere and indulging in the best of food and wine that Chianti and Tuscany offer.
The relaxed environment balances tradition and modernity. The style is unique – pure, organic, and holistic “to keep the soul happy”, as one guest put it – using natural materials such as linen, drifted and reclaimed wood, European antiques and objects gathered from the owners’ cherished destinations around the world.
The gardens surrounding the hotel have been re-designed and re-planted and a new terrace overlooking vineyards and open countryside has created a stylish setting for a swimming pool, with ample space for sunbathing or simply relaxing under shade.
Our twenty comfortably furnished air-conditioned room are each individually-decorated. All rooms are non-smoking. We welcome children starting 14 years old. Wi fi available in common areas. We can not guarantee a perfect coverage of wi-fi due to the weak coverage of this area.

We try our hardest to respect the planet. We use eco-friendly products wherever possible and practical in all facets of the hotel, including sustainable furniture, low emission paints, eco-certified toiletries, LED lighting and A+ appliances and, in our gardens, bio fertilizers. We are addressing water conservation and recycling.
