Generous and absolutely charming hosts, Brid and Stefano, could not be more helpful and welcoming. Enchanting room with stunning medieval (?) window amongst other period features. Imaginatively and beautifully decorated in a unique and complimentary way with frescoes and some intriguing antiquities. Situated in the heart of town, couldn’t be better placed. Opposite the medieval church, and overlooking the pedestrianised... More

Stayed for a couple of days in May 2015 in this atmospheric B & B ensconced in a 14th century tower in the heart of Lucca. This little jewel takes you back in time with its wooden beams, exposed brickwork, high ceilings and ancient artefacts. Managed by an amiable, personable and knowledgeable couple, this place is like Lucca itself -... More

Visiting Lucca should be on everyone's list when travelling in Italy! Stefano and Brid own and operate a wonderful bed and breakfast in the heart of Lucca! They have restored a treasure - every aspect of our stay was special from their warm hospitality to staying in the heart of the city. We appreciated all their hot tips on where... More

When you see photos of a guest house that look great, you always worry that when you get there they won't live up to expectation. However this place, was fantastic. We stayed in the room with the exposed brick, and we were blown away. The location is great, right in the centre of Lucca and the hosts Stefano and Brid... More

If you are in Lucca, you have to stay at L'Antica Bifore! The rooms were all different, they were beautifully decorated and the hotel is located in the middle of everything. Stefano and Brid were the perfect hosts and recommended us a restaurant were we had a great meal. When in Lucca you should definitely have a run on the... More

We had a lovely stay at L'Antica Bifore. The guesthouse has a great location in central Lucca. When we first got into town, we inadvertently drove into the city center (which you're not supposed to do). I met up with our hosts, Stefano and Brid, who helped us out immensely. They are incredibly nice and very welcoming. The rooms are... More

We have never stayed anywhere that has this sense of history. Brid and Stephano are a superb couple, arranging transfers,restaurants and tickets to the opera. (Note:- Let them arrange transport, it is a lot cheaper than taxis which run on a meter, and at a pre arranged price.) We will be back again!

We could not fault this place and great value also, we will def head... More

Stayed at L'Antica Bifore for 1 night. Location is supurb, right in the middle of Lucca, but be prepared for a 20 min walk with your luggage to parking/train/transportation --only downside. Hosts were amazing, very responsive and helped line up dinner reservations and wine tasting/tour. Very impressed with the customer service. The B&B has only 4 rooms and would be... More
