Everything about this property is wonderful! From the terrace, we were able to see the towers of Lucca in the distance. The countryside was just beautiful! We went into the kitchen with the chef to learn the secrets of making perfect risotto. The pool is the perfect place to relax, and our room was beautifully decorated and very spacious. We... More

We stayed for 3 nights in late July 2013. The property is quite lovely. Our room was extremely large, light, airy and well-appointed. The bathroom was huge ! The look is simple rather than dressy. That's the beauty of the place - not stuffy at all - a very relaxed and casual tone. You feel pampered, but not in an... More

We stayed here for 10 days as part of a relaxing holiday in northern Italy. Great team with good English that are very friendly and provide excellent service. They helped me out with a couple of complicated requests and they did everything the could to sort them out successfully. Fantastic suites, only 14 in total and all of them spacious... More

We have stayed at Albergo Villa Casanova for three nights and my only regret is that we have to leave. It is a wonderful hotel, and it is hard to believe there is any place much nicer to stay right near Lucca. The grounds are gorgeous and there is a lovely pool with spectacular views, as well as tennis, ping... More

Located outside of Lucca in very nice surroundings, this hotel could have been splendid, which it was not. Upon arrival I thought that this was a place that had not had any renovation for over 20 years or so, being confirmed when entering our (highly priced!) suite which did not smell all too fresh, so I quickly opened all the...

We welcome your comments and will use them to improve our service. We provide very simple, freshly cooked lunches at the request of the majority our guests as the feedback we have strongly favours dinner as the main meal of the day. We have a very talented young Chef who creates a different fresh dinner menu each day and has... More

From May, 20th till 24th we spent our last part of our Northern Italian Journey. We travelled by our classic vintage Mini-Cooper as mentioned before. The Albergo Villa Casanova is located only a few miles / kilometers away from the old small medieval city of amazing Lucca. This particular city we highly recommend, too. Even to reach the Villa -...

The location was challenging to find but not an issue as lots of signposts and satnav just about coped and it was very much worth the effort. Only 15 mins from Lucca, 14 rooms in this converted viilla make it a serene place to balance the bustle and business of the town. The owners and staff are totally charming, happy... More

We recently ended our 9 day tour of Tuscany with two nights here and it was a truly spectacular property with impeccable service. The suite, which was on the upper floor and had a picturesque view of the mountains, was newly renovated and immaculate, including a large spacious sitting room with TV/refrigerator/coffee service and a separate bedroom with a king...

We recently, 2 weeks ago, stayed at your beautiful Villa in Lucca. Our trip to Tuscany was 10 days long. We stayed at your Villa 3 nights. The stay with you was the highlight of our trip. If we had to do it all over again, we would have stayed more nights with you. Your villa, the food, the service,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Albergo Villa Casanova is the result of a complete renovation of an 18th-century Tuscan farmhouse set in 360 acres of mixed woodland just ten minutes from Lucca. Newly reopened in December 2009, Albergo Villa Casanova is now a distinctive and relaxed, luxury boutique hotel with 14 incredibly spacious suites, restaurant, magnificent terraces, infinity swimming pool and tennis court. The valley of Lucca and the tower of Castello Nozzano can be viewed from the hotel and the area is ideal for walking, cycling and exploring the historical walled town of Lucca, home to Puccini. It's also a perfect location to just relax with a book and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Numerous festivals take place throughout the year. The world famous Puccini Festival takes place at the open-air theatre at Torre del Lago, a few Kilometres from the hotel. Albergo Villa Casanova has its own chapel (see section on Weddings) and several adjoining country houses, one of which dates back to the 15th century. The original owners were the Balbani family who later gave their name to the locality. ... more   less
