Fodor's Expert Review Locanda dell'Amorosa

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

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 terracotta 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.
