Through the restoration of an ancient farmhouse a guest-house has been born, in which charm and grace create the backdrop for contemporary art works capable of surprising, enchanting, moving.
We had a wonderful time last week, especially once the rain stopped. We have been very lucky to stay in some truly beautiful places around the world but the Locanda was something very special and quite quite different to a typical luxury hotel. We loved all your quirky touches and the way everything just worked to create such a delightful ambience. We would love to come back. Once again, thank you Riccardo to you and all your team - only home 48 hours and missing you already! All the best.

Hello Riccardo, I would like to thank you and your team – especially Gianluca – for the great hospitality we enjoyed at the Locanda during our visit at my birthday a couple of weeks ago. As you certainly know, you have created a great and - from my point of view - also unique place. As we like the mountains of Alpi Apuane and the area of the Versilia as well, we will definitely see us again – sooner than later. I wish you a pleasant summer with great guests and a good time. Kind regards.
Hi Ricardo, just to put in writing what a delightful and generous stay you gave me and Julianne. We both found it hard going home and getting back into our real lives again. Thank you. We both totally relaxed and the videos I took of the views and the sound of the birds and the wind in the trees are now with me when ever I need some moments of relaxation. Thanks to all your friendly and delightful staff too. All my love and thanks.
Dear Ricardo, meanwhile we are back in Holland and still think and talk a lot about you and your beautiful place. We are really fond of your total hospitality concept. Food, interior, furniture and staff are together more than 100%. We hope to see you again much sooner than summer next year. Kind regards and love

Hi Riccardo, sorry didn't get a chance to say bye and also to thankyou for the wonderful book which Tina and I will enjoy reading for many an hour. And as much as we look forward to reading it, the hotels that are featured will have to be pretty amazing to come close to Locanda al Colle! We had the most perfect time as always; the rooms, the attention to detail, the breakfast, dinners, the setting, tranquility, the weather, the walks, bike ride, beach, simply everything is perfect and Tina and I just wanted to say a huge thankyou. Already looking forward to next year ... Best wishes

Bonsoir Riccardo, encore un grand merci pour ce si beau séjour passé à la Locanda ! C'était vraiment formidable comme toujours! Bravo aussi à Gianlucca: ses dîners et son cours de cuisine étaient au top! Bon courage pour la suite de la saison! Nous t'embrassons bien affectueusement.

Carissimo Riccardo, many thanks for the tips and suggestions provided this year as your restaurant recommendations have been in both occasion superb.The Colletto room was just perfect and the complimentary wine as they say, went down very well.The hip hotel book ,which is already sitting on our lounge coffee table was a thoughtful and mostly appreciated gift. Hopefully will we be returning in 2017. Thanks once again and extend our regards to your staff as well.

Hello Riccardo, just send you this email to thank you once more for our lovely stay in Locanda Al Colle. We loved the location, the interior, the perfect beds and of course the homemade cooking. We still regret that we had to leave early because of Melissa's ear problem, but the doctor confirmed that it wasn't a minute to soon that we returned to Belgium. She is still recovering... Anyway, again a big thank you to you and your star for the lovely stay, we hope to visit again next year. Kind regards
Dear all, what can I say ! We are all home feeling we left a bit of our hearts with you. Riccardo you looked after us like we were your own family, and we loved every minute of our stay with you. All of us have never enjoyed a trip so much, and we travel a fair bit as a group to lovely places, but we dont think anywhere will beat locandaalcolle. Please pass on our thanks to Gabrielle and the absolutely amazing Gianlucca. The tours were fabulous, the wonderful wine trip and the time with Sylvie on their boat. Both again wonderful hosts. All it leaves me to say is many many thanks, you have given us so many happy memories. I will be back. Love
Dear Riccardo, exactly one week has passed since we left the locanda and Tuscany. We are already missing waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffe and Gian luca´s delicous pastry in the morning... We felt so welcome and during our stay became more and more attached to your place and the beauty that lies in every detail. There is so much to discover, so many places that you can settle down to just ponder and enjoy the moment together. Being at a fairly young age with hopefully a lot more travel experiances to come, I can nevertheless honestly say that there have only been a few places so far that could take me out of my day to day routine that quickly. There is undoubtedly a whole combination of factors that made this short trip special to each of us individually, but the authenticity of the locanda and the genuine way in which everything worked was strongly felt by both of us. Please also send our warmest regards to Gian Luca
Andrea and Philipp

Dear Ricardo, I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful couple of nights Emily and I had with you. Em has always eulogised about her visits - she always had the most marvellous times staying with you. I must say she could not have been more truthful if she had tried. You have created a beautiful hotel coupled with the most charming and helpful of staff and outstanding food. You are the most gracious of hosts - truly it was home from home. Many, many thanks. I have always loved coming to Italy but Locanda al Colle was on a league of its own. Very best of wishes
