I was wondering whether to write yet another review of Villa La Principessa but I really do think they deserve it. Each time we've stayed there (4 times now - twice this year) we've been in different rooms and each time they have been wonderful. The staff and service in general remain delightful, the food likewise, the accommodation airy and... More

After spending a few days in Rome, we were looking forward to a quite restful week in Tuscany. Arriving at the hotel by car, we were immediately taken by the beautiful surroundings. It is a old style villa sitting at the foot of a hill, surrounded by forest of trees and bamboo bushes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.... More

We have just spent a perfect week in this beautiful villa a short drive from Lucca. The period features of the elegant palazzo have been preserved and the surrounding gardens are lush, green and shady. We were able to eat outside on several occasions (the weather was quite stormy for much of the time).Delightful bedrooms and bathrooms and the social... More

We arrived in our Fiat 500, driving through drifts of beautiful rustling bamboo growths, we pulled up at the entrance of this Italian Palazzo. The fountain by the entrance was bounded by 4 frothy clouds of pink hydrangeas in antique terra cotta pots. When we stepped into this grand property, we were greeted with a welcome, as warm and mellow... More

Spent 2 nights in July. Chose the hotel because of the nice pool. However we had a thunderstorm with rain and overcast the whole time. This is a friendly and nice place with good service. We just had some trouble coping with the extreme wall papers in the rooms (psychedelic flowers in hideous colours) - authentic 70'ies style I'm sure.... More

We really enjoyed this break. I want to make this clear at the start as I will be making some recommendations which although appearing negative are simply suggestions and points that guests might feel would be important to a more luxurious stay at little extra effort and cost on the part of the hotel. We had a triple room which... More

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The view from our room's window was fantastic. The pool is large, rectangular and was uncrowded. The huge lobby area rooms conveys a feeling of the building's aristocratic past. Dining on the outside terrace is a luxurious experience, with delicious food and good wines.

A quiet old romantic Palazzo in a beautiful park, 10 min. away from Lucca Center. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Pool area is relaxing. Restaurant food is very good at reasonable prices. Romantic Athmosphere, especially when sitting outside.

Quiet hotel with large, clean rooms. A a green oasis with a wonderful garden near Lucca. The pool is large and the whole setup quite relaxing. Only negative point: Staff is sometimes difficult to catch e.g. for a dring at the pool or at the bar. Overall very pleasant experience. I would book there again.
