Franco was so welcoming and would go to absolutely any length to make sure we had everything we wanted or needed! What a great guy! Thank you so much, Franco. We checked in at late notice and had a great stay there. 10/10 recommend!

Tom and I traveled to Franco's Friendly Villa in 2013 as we honeymooned in Italy. Our experiences and beautiful memories brought us back to celebrate our first anniversary at Franco's Friendly Villa! We fell in love with Franco's Villa, Franco "Italiano", his lovely wife Ada and beautiful mother Ernesta. Our room was perfect, complete with a charming balcony overlooking Tuscany.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Franco's! The views were absolutely stunning and the rooms were large even by American standards, let alone European! Breakfast was served every morning, even to my strict dietary restrictions, and it was absolutely delicious. Franco drove us to dinner every night and helped us arrange our plans for the next morning.... More

The Villa is a hidden gem in the charming & special village of Diecimo. Franco is the most generous & kind host/caretaker. We had a great time walking around the village, hopping on the train to visit the sites, and just taking a moment each morning to enjoy the amazing breakfast and special order coffee! The rooms were pristine &... More

Franco took great care of us in his beautiful villa in the small town of Diecimo, 20 minutes by trainer car north of the fabulous walled city of Lucca. From picking us up at the train station to arranging a driver to the Cinque Terra and running to get us train tickets to Pisa, Franco made sure that we had... More

we cannot say enough about the hospitality that we experienced at Franco's. We were treated like royalty . It didn't make any difference what we needed help with Franco Marchetti was at our beck and call with advise on train schedules, restaurants, and places to visit. Diecimo is the perfect place to make your base when going around Tuscany. The... More

Franco is a true angel and should be wearing a halo. He is kindness itself and the perfect host. There is nothing Franco will not do to ensure your every need is met. He is kindness itself. I cannot believe our luck in finding this B and B where we were treated like royalty. Rooms are immaculate and lovely touches... More
