Tuscan Luxury Country Resort
Locanda in Tuscany is a luxury country resort immersed in the boundless rolling farmlands amid the UNESCO heritage Val d'Orcia Artistic, Natural and Cultural Park. The resort is between the most renowned southern Tuscan medieval towns of Pienza and Montalcino. Beautifully restored, the mansion stands within a gorgeous, luminous garden lined by holm-oak and olive trees.
The project is a labor of love for owners Luca and Claudia Bernetti, who, upon deciding to open a luxury resort, asked themselves: "What is the luxury world missing today?" They knew a magnificent property with breathtaking views would not be enough. The Bernettis wanted their guests to fall in love. Locanda was where that could happen, where they could offer visitors a gift to carry in their hearts forever. The Bernettis and their staff have created an intimate and immersive experience of the beauty and vitality of life in the region, focusing on sustainable and organic principles.
The building is a private country mansion from the XVII century, totally renovated in respect to the Tuscan tradition. Nine refined rooms and suites accommodate guests in the days leading to the main event in a candlelit night glowing atmosphere where finely laid tables are set around the property's patios and inside the cozy, rustic stone stables. Whether the wedding is an intimate gathering or a more significant event, guests' wishes and tastes are granted.
