We loved our recent visit to beautiful Lucca and L'Antica Bifore. Stefano and Brid are excellent hosts and happy to share information and great recommendations for restaurants, bike hire etc. L'Antica Bifore was a cool and quiet haven for our daily siesta and the rooms beautifully decorated. Location was perfect.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Stefan's was very helpful. We stayed 2 nights in the tower room. It had 3 beds so our son was with us too. All were happy. Good room to fend off jet lag. We did a day trip to cinque terre, and had 2 dinners in Lucca. Our fav was da pasquale, and highly... More

We visited L'Antica Bifore for a week, staying in the beautifully frescoed rooms - one overlooking St Cristoforo church on via Fillungo and the other overlooking the courtyard. Both rooms were very clean, comfortable and uniquely stylish with stunning windows. We cannot praise Brid and Stefano highly enough - I contacted them by email before our arrival as we had... More

A lovely place to visit with charming hosts. Beautifully renovated 13th Century tower full of character in a super location. Come out of the front door and you are in the busy streets of central Lucca. Brid and Stefano worked hard to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable.

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. Stefano and Brid were excellent hosts - very welcoming and friendly, giving lots of useful information about Lucca and good restaurant recommendations. The B&B, itself, is lovely. Ideally located in the centre of Lucca, you step out the door and you are immediately immersed in the delights of Lucca. The... More

Charming comfortable B&B right in the centre of Lucca. Hosts had great recommendations on where to eat and were able to get us reservations even on a busy Saturday. Lots of amazing food in the city, well worth a few days visit.

Firstly, Lucca is a wonderful, beautiful city and although quite busy, has a very relaxed atmosphere. Secondly, if you choose to visit Lucca, look no further than L'Antica Bifore. Lucca has not lost its medieval charm and either has the building in which L'Antica Bifore is situated in. Both Brid and Stefano are wonderful hosts and are full of advice... More

The owner provided helpful directions and advice for entering, exploring and exiting walled Lucca. Our room had been graciously updated although the bed frame cramped my 6'-1" frame. The breakfast offered a good assortment. My only real complaint is the tile floor needing mopping.
