What do you get when you take an eighteenth century monastery and add a dash of Art Deco? Locanda al Colle, a charming guest house in the Tuscan countryside. Careful restoration using local materials preserved the character and traditional architecture while the interior is a mix of vintage, retro and contemporary. My favorite type of hotel design.
