“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Loved staying here during our time in Tuscany! The town this great B&B is situated in is stunning, it's very close to Lucca and the B&B itself is amazing! Dario is a great host, we didn't get to try his traditional Tuscan food this time but I'm sure we will when we're next back. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for number 2 or 3, all are great but these two would be my favourites from where we all stayed

This is a wonderful B&B! It is located in a very cute small hillside Italian town which is close to many other touristic cities and towns. Dario and Marie are great hosts and make you feel apart of their family and treat you as a very special guest. They are extreamly friendly, helpful and the B&B is beautiful and in a great location- the perfect combination for a wonderful experience!

San Gennaro Castello B&B is absolutely wonderful. Dario and Marie were the consummate hosts in this beautiful bed and breakfast. I spent three lovely days and felt as if I was not only "home" but pampered as a special guest. I am a former airline employee and have traveled the world. I've stayed in five star hotels and B&B all over the world and this lovely treasure is definitely at the top! I cannot say enough good things about my stay and accomodations. The two nights of multi-course Tuscan dinners was everything I imagined in Tuscan cooking. A must if you stay there. The views were spectacular and that made it just perfect for me. Dario is an expert at food/beverage and you will enjoy hearing his experiences as a hospitality professional. I am planning a return trip and will look nowhere else. It's heaven. Thanks to Dario and Marie for making my birthday trip a memorable experience.

Room Tip: I had a suite facing the Tuscan valley. Breathtaking....

Stayed in San Gennaro for two nights and everything was perfect. Dario, his family, and friends made the stay a very enjoyable experience; he was very helpful in providing assistance for day trips in Lucca and the surrounding area.
I will be returning to this B&B in the future for a longer stay.

We stayed in San Gennaro in May 2012 for two nights, and were very pleased with the accommodations. Dario and his family were very helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and fun as possible. He was very accommodating about payment upon arrival. The room was pristine and very comfortable and the food was delicious. The location is great and has a beautiful view and is worth the trip up the hill it sits on. It is very close to many destinations, such as Lucca, Siena, and the Ligurian Coast. We would return without hesitation and recommend this bed and breakfast without reservations.

Very very nice place to stay. Quiet, calm & beautiful.

The owner is the best guide for a toscany tour !

The small village, and the aera of the B&B are very typical as well, i advise to take a little tour around. It is very appreciated to have a place to stay not to far from the ver turistic Lucca or Firenze !

Thanks again

San Gennaro Castello B&B is the ideal place to stay for a visit to Tuscany. The B&B is close to many interesting cities and also to the sea, while being in a quiet village. It is possible to go to Lucca, Pisa, Firenze, Forte dei Marmi in a very short time.
We were warmly welcomed by Dario and Marie and had a very pleasant stay.
