Locanda le Boscarecce
Via Renai 19, 50051 Castelfiorentino,
A sparkling star in Tuscany's firmament. Susanna is full of life and laughter, her daughter Swan is equally warm – and an accomplished sommelier. Susanna concocts dishes that people travel miles to discover. Fruit, vegetables, herbs and olive oil are all home grown, there are plenty of wines in the cellar and, outside, the biggest pizza oven ever. The 200-year-old locanda is on a ridge, embracing fields and farms and heavenly sunsets. Bedrooms in the farmhouse are part rustic, part refined, with bold colours and pretty lace at the windows, each space unique. Beds are modern and comfortable, furniture 18th and 19th-century, bathrooms have bath tubs and showers, and some rooms have kitchenettes. Tennis, cycling, swimming in the saltwater pool with its panoramic view – all are possible; or simply relax under the dreamy gazebo and dip into an art book from the library. Even the geography is enticing, in the charmed triangle formed by Florence, Siena and Pisa. Heart-warming, creative and definitely special.
