Through the restoration of an ancient farmhouse a beautiful guesthouse has been born, in which charm and grace create the backdrop for contemporary art works capable of surprising, enchanting, moving. Thanks to the fortunate location of this guesthouse towns such as Pisa, Florence and Siena are easy to visit in a single day. The same applies to the marble quarries of Carrara and Cinque Terre. And it’s just a few minutes from the Camaiore beaches. Beach service at Beachclub Bagno Cavallone is included!
There’s no check-in desk. There is no computer. There is no line. It really feels like coming home. When we arrived we stepped into the hotels living room and were greeted by the friendly owner Riccardo. The whole place is tastefully decorated in soothing neutral shades.
The beautiful suites feature a pleasing mix of contemporary and antique furnishings. We really liked that there is no tv in the room. The bathroom is divine, bath products made from local olive oil.
Up on the second floor there is a cozy living room with fire place, the best coffee table books and a self-service bar. In the outside and inner areas the furniture and art are findings from trips abroad. Riccardo has an exclusive and very unique taste. It’s all in the details. What an amazing place!
Relaxation tends to come easy amid the rolling hills of Tuscany, and Locanda al Colle helps things along with the presence of a heated outdoor swimming pool. The peaceful terrace, nestling between olive trees, lavender, flowering rosemary and sage is the perfect spot to enjoy the splendid view. The terrace welcomes you every morning to let you start your day with a delicious, homemade and healthy breakfast. What a treat!
If you are lucky enough to stay at Locanda al Colle on a Wednesday or Saturday night, you must take advantage of the home cooked dinner that is served. In the warm intimacy of the open-space kitchen, all guests of Locanda al Colle are invited to a delicious dinner. The chef Gian Luca is ready to reveal the tricks and secrets of his art in a true cookery course every Tuesday.
Locanda al Colle is one of the best guesthouses we have ever stayed at. It’s such a beautiful place, you have to discover yourself! Open from April to October. In winter only open for exclusive bookings of the entire house.
