Overview

The owners of Locanda Rossa have established a delightfully unpretentious designer retreat amidst the olive groves and sweeping countryside of Tuscany’s Maremma. Just a short hop from the white sand beaches of this rugged stretch of coastline, the hotel features chic bedrooms, a pool, spa and bistro-style restaurant.

 

Situated at the end of a tree-lined drive, the former farmhouse sits amongst extensive gardens with a furnished terrace that looks onto the heated outdoor pool (7 x 14). There is also an indoor lounge and a bar. A gorgeous spa, with Turkish bath, thermal pool, sauna and treatment rooms, is subject to an additional charge (spa menu).

 

A children’s playground, with trampoline and mini football pitch is set slightly apart from the main pool area, and there is also table tennis and bike hire. Baby cots, high chairs and rollaway beds, together with the general atmosphere of the Locanda, make this a great place for families. The apartments are particularly well-suited for families but do get booked up early.

Rooms

Bedrooms vary in layout and furniture, each stylishly decorated and ranging in size from 13sqm to 70sqm and with sparkling modern bathrooms. Most of the rooms have private gardens or terraces. The two apartments are 120sqm each, with two bedrooms and a patio or private garden with outdoor furniture, a parasol and barbecue.

 

Classic (14 mq ~ 16 mq)
Superior (18 mq)
Junior Suite (29 ~ 47 sqm)
Suite(65 mq)
Suite Club (80 ~ 90 sqm)

Dining

Breakfast – a buffet of fruit, yoghurt, cheese and salami from the Maremma, and homemade pastries, cakes and jam - is served in the restaurant and lunch/dinner is served either in the restaurant or on the restaurant terrace. Ingredients are locally sourced with a strong focus on the traditional gastronomy of Capalbio and the Maremma, with fruit and vegetables grown on the property.

Location

La Locanda is just over 3km from Capalbio, an attractive medieval town with some excellent local restaurants, charming arts and crafts shops and several interesting churches and palaces.

 

The Maremma is still very much a place of wide-open spaces, with towns clustered inland on hilltops, and although increasingly a hub for stylish new hotels and restaurants, this stretch of coastline remains one of the most unspoiled regions of Italy. The coast, a fabulous 12km stretch of sand, fringed with maritime pines and cork-oak woodlands to one side and a crystal clear sea to the other, is a short drive away, offering both private and public beaches.

 

Join the Italians heading for the extremely popular Marina di Alberese beach and be in with the ‘in-crowd’ at the very fashionable Ultima Spiaggia, reputedly the chicest beach club in southern Tuscany and a great place for a lunchtime frittura di pesce.
