Today we went to Palazzo Pitti and what a showtime... We come back for sure and thx for sending us a last email. Regards from us and as well to this amazing chef Gian Luca. Believe us you have a unique concept and team. Top quality time.

Dear Riccardo & your fantastic team. We’ve arrived home now after our wonderful holiday at Locanda al Colle. You must hear this so often but you are very special and have a wonderfully relaxed way of making everyone’s holiday perfect. The house looked just as good as we remembered it last September and ‘our’ room one of the most comfortable we have ever stayed in. Peter & I look forward very much to returning in September along with our friends Clare & Patrick.
Yours Christine & Peter Holland
Ricardo, You are the man! Thank you so much! You, Gian Luca and the team did such an amazing job again. It’s really our favorite place in Italy. Your hospitality is beyond exceptional. We miss you guys already. Our friends can’t wait to come back too. Hope see you guys again soon. Have a great summer.

Dear Riccardo and team, First of all we want to thank you for feeling at home in Locanda al colle. It is truly like you said ``not a hotel but a family house where you stay with friends``. We have never seen a place where everything is so spot on. A place to remember and tell about, which I am sure we will.
Dear Riccardo, Thank you for a most wonderful stay at Locanda. It was a dream Italian vacation for us. You and your staff did everything possible to make us feel welcomed and relaxed. We loved the sophisticated yet warm elegance of the house, especially the private outdoor spaces, and the artwork throughout for all to enjoy. That casual dinner in the garden made the night a very special end to the trip.

Dear Riccardo, Thank you again for having the opportunity of sharing this wonderful piece of Tuscany at the Locanda. Gabriel asked me for a chocolate à la Riccardo this morning! We enjoyed very much and hope to come again soon. Have a great evening with good food and please send our best regards to Gian Luca from all of us.

Buongiorno Riccardo We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you, Gian Luca and all your staff for such a wonderful stay. Locanda al Colle truly is a very special place! We hope to return again in the future perhaps in the spring or for an autumn break. Thank you for looking after us so very well. All your recommendations were superb as was Mario the local taxi driver and the airport transfer.

Caro Riccardo, Sigrid and I want to thank you for creating such a fabulous place for us to celebrate our 30 years of marriage. We loved the villa, and we loved all the opportunities for fun you provided. Cooking with Gian Luca was priceless! Your staff… Gabriella, Laura, and all those we didn’t get a chance to meet, made our stay truly special! We thoroughly enjoyed renting Vespas and your help getting us to Lucca made for a great day trip. Our sincerest thanks to you, Gian Luca, Gabriella, Laura and the entire staff of Locanda al Colle!
