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! Thank you to the friendly and hospitable staff for another impeccable stay, and for making our daughter's first holiday so warm, friendly and trouble-free. We... More

We were only able to stay one night at this lovely hotel on the outskirts of Lucca (5 minutes drive). We stayed in a standard room which was a good size, blissfully quiet and cool. The shower room was very smart and large with a drench and hand held showers., good soaps and shampoos.The receptionist was very helpful and the... More

Very charming hotel. Spacious rooms, dated wallpaper but it works in this setting. Very good service and food. We are here with Insight Vacations. The garden and pool area in the rear is nice with a view of the mountain.

This is not the place for everyone because it is in the "burbs" of Lucca, a 20 euro cab ride to/from Lucca, on a very busy, unwalkable street. Lovely old house and acreage and pool. Quiet, peaceful. Food was usually very good and generous breakfast was included. Front desk staff were superb. It fit our small meeting needs to a... More

I must say we had some doubts about this hotel having read some of the negative reviews, but we have just returned from a three night stay and all of our fears proved unfounded. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and shown every courtesy by the well-informed and helpful staff. Our room on the third floor had a lovely view... More

Stayed in this property just for one night and believe me it was more than enough. The room was tiny but clean. Bathroom was ok. The location was not so great but we had a car so it didn't matter much. The reason for the poor rating is the decor inside the room. I understand this place is a heritage... More

I use tripadvisor for all of my hotel bookings and as you can see from my previous reviews, I'm usually a very happy traveller. After seeing all the excellent reviews, I expected this hotel would be good but I was dissapointed. Whilst on a 3 week tour of Italy, this was the most expensive hotel that my boyfriend and I...
