Fodor's Expert Review La Locanda

Località Montanino di Volpaia, off Via della Volpaia, 13 km (8 miles) northwest of Radda, Radda in Chianti, Tuscany, 53017, Italy Fodor's Choice

At an altitude of more than 1,800 feet, this converted farmhouse is probably the loftiest luxury inn in Chianti. Its views are breathtaking, looking down on Volpaia and Radda, with Siena and the hills of southern Tuscany as a backdrop. The infinity pool, set on the hillside, takes full advantage of the magnificent panorama. Guest rooms are simple but tasteful, with high beamed ceilings, painted, as was once the tradition in these parts, in pale pastels. To get here, take the bumpy gravel road 2 km (1 mile) northwest from Volpaia.
