Locanda dell'Amorosa

Località L'Amorosa 1, 23 km (14 miles) east of Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Sinalunga, Tuscany, 53048, Italy

What was a self-sufficient hamlet with its own chapel in the 14th century is now a refined inn. Some rooms have stunning views, others a private garden or terrace. All have sumptuous fabrics flowing around windows and woven rugs on the terra-cotta floors. The grounds teem with rambling roses, thick lavender, and multicolor geraniums in spring and summer. The restaurant ($$$–$$$$) has candlelit tables next to stone walls and the Tuscan menu has flights of fantasy such as risotto primavera in spuma di piselli e prosciutto croccante, a rice and spring vegetable dish in a creamy pea sauce with fried prosciutto bits.
