We stayed here for 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. It's a beautiful old villa. Our bedroom, we booked a superior room, turned out to be a suite. Very spacious. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the service first class. We had peaceful nights sleep in a lovely comfortable bed. The grounds and swimming pool are lovely.... More

There are not enough chairs at the pool and also the consumptions are to expensive (6 euros for small beer). You have to be early at breakfast, otherwise is there not enough place... More

Excellent location at 4-5 km away from the old town of Lucca, in a park surrounded by trees and with green grass garden and a pool. Breakfast was good and service excellent. Attentive staff. We enjoyed the hospitality, food and cleanliness. We had brunch and tried the mix of Tuscan salami and Capresse, and followed with some Pannini.

Villa la Principessa is located in a pretty villa in the outskirts of Lucca. It is an hotel probably designed and decorated in the late 60s and it has been lovingly preserved that way. I cannot think of a better way of enjoying a visit to Tuscany by immersing yourself in this example of what hospitality used to be when... More

Really pretty setting. Breakfast was good. The villa has loads of character and it's like going back in time. The pool was beautiful and relaxing with great views. Prosecco was cheap We got bus into Lucca then a taxi back every day. If you run there's a 5k ish route to do. Our room was a bit garish with a... More

Returning to our favourite hotel in Italy, this time with a 6-week-old baby, my wife and I were relieved that our latest - and quite vocal - addition was welcomed to the normally tranquil villa!
