We stayed 4 nights in September, 2015 as part of a wonderful small group tour (Nada Tours) of Tuscany. Our room, on the second floor overlooked the back area of the Villa and was very quiet and comfortable. Our only observation for improvement was 1.) need for carpet replacement in the bar room area, need for additonal bar area chairs.... More

We stayed for one night during our tour of Tuscany. Hotel is in a beautiful old villa. Staff were very friendly. Lots of parking. Big garden and pool, which we did not use. Room and bed were spacious and comfortable. View of garden from the balcony. Breakfast was very good. The building is old, so a few fittings and ornaments... More

the villa is in an impressive park filled with some incredible bamboo. very easy to find. the staff is very courteous. our room was quite large, and very clean, but the wallpaper was a bit shabby. would have liked an extra pillow in the room, but that's just me. the pool is beautiful and tranquil - we felt very relaxed.

A lovely old hotel on the outskirts of Lucca. We stayed in a 'superior double' which was large, comfortabe and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. Outside, in the large gardens was the swimming pool which was a great way to relax after a busy day out. Food at the hotel is good, though pool and bar drinks can... More

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.

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.
