Simple pleasures are the order of the day at this seven-room haven deep in Chianti country—a glass of wine by the pool, a wide-screen view of rolling hills topped by walled villages and the occasional castle, or a stroll through the surrounding woods. Run by affable hosts Guido and Martina Bevilacqua, La Locanda works because it reflects its owners' laid-back sense of style and relaxed attitude toward profit margins: So bath products are by Bulgari and mineral water is free—as are the Amadei chocolates that are offered to guests on arrival. The honesty bar in the lounge offers not the usual array of supermarket spirits but a wide selection of Tuscan wines, some of them very fine indeed. Rooms are done out in warm Tuscan country style, spiced up with the odd piece of colonial furniture and some Bevilacqua family photos; the best ones are the four that face that view. Though it's quite a long drive down a dirt track from Volpaia, the nearest village, the payoff is total peace and seclusion. There's no restaurant as such, but since most guests are reluctant to leave, a fixed-price Mediterranean menu is offered in the evening five days a week, Thursdays and Sundays excluded.

Open April to October.
