“5 stars b&b in wonderful Lucca!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I did not have the chance to read the reviews of this b&b before making my reservation and I must admit I was a little concerned about the room not having an en-suite bathroom, but I changed my mind the moment I crossed the doorstep of this fabulous b&b and met Simona and Guido: such wonderful, wonderful hosts! One can really feel the love and diligence they have for their home. The b&b is tastefully furnished with antiques, rooms are spacious and well appointed (ours had a comfortable four-poster bed, a desk, a large ottoman, a wardrobe, a coat hanger and two windows). Bathrooms are always spotless clean and their interior design reflects the "old-style allure" of the entire house. Breakfast, which consists of home made cake, juices and other delicious treats, is served on the tiny balcony overlooking the medieval roofs and bell towers. After a long day strolling in beautiful Lucca (a gem of a city), this could also be the ideal spot to have an aperitif.

Lucca is a beautiful walled town but we never expected the B&B to be the highlight of our stay. Simona and Giulio were the perfect hosts. Interested and informative about an area they obviously love but not over involved in our planning.
The B&B is attractively furnished with old world photos and historic pieces, Just like your Italian grandmother would have present it if she was an interior decorator. The rooms are very comfortable with beautiful beds with a separate bathroom down the hall but it never seemed to be a problem. The breakfasts were homemade and taken out on the balcony overlooking the medieval part of Lucca making for a wonderful start to the day. We stayed 3 days but will always have fond memories of the Evelina and the excellent service and smiles of our hosts.

This is a charming B&B located in a charming city. Simona and Giulio are incredibly sweet and wonderful hosts. Their attention to detail in the decor makes this a welcoming place with a homey feel. Every morning we were served a tasty breakfast on the veranda.

We also liked the chalk board in the dining room area where local events are posted. Thanks to that board, our first night we learned of a jazz festival in the city, which was incredible!

Everything is immaculate and the rooms are quiet. The location is in the center of Lucca, so everything is a short walk. We would definitely stay here again.

4 of us (2 couples) stayed at Evelina in October for 3 nights and could not fault it as a B&B - we have stayed at several but none as hospitable or as clean as Evelina.

Simona & Giulio were great hosts and we were always greeted with a welcoming smile and they even took the time out to see us off.

I have worked in the tourism and hospitality industry for 30+ years and have no hesitation in recommending Evelina as a B&B to stay and Simona & Guilio as hosts

Great place - great time and have already recommended to 3 couples

Room Tip: Double rooms overlooking "red roofs" are best

This is a truly incredible accomodation! The B&B is beautiful and keeps such an authentic historic feel with lots of antiques and charm without feeling stuffy. There are 5 rooms and 3 bathrooms shared amongst them which always seemed to be available when you needed them. Breakfast was great, and so nice to enjoy on the balcony on a sunny morning. Simona and Giulio are wonderfully welcoming and gracious hosts. You will be delighted to meet them, enjoy their hospitality, and discover their beautiful city.

Yes it's 3 flights up and yes we were tired and had too much luggage but once we reached the B&B all the tiredness just drifted away. Evelina is a testimony to the attention to detail of both Simona and Giulio. It is obvious that they too are travellers and so they understand all that their guests require. The decor is beautiful, the breakfasts delicious, the location superb and the hosts, well they are just the loveliest couple; fun, intelligent, knowledgable and caring. Who could ask for anything more. We stayed 6 nights and loved it. Good WiFi signal too, not something you can always rely on. Like others we were a bit concerned about sharing a bathroom but that was absolutely no problem, the bathrooms are kept spotless and there was always one available

As most of the reviews share, Simona and Gulio are wonderful hosts!! Their home is beautiful and spotlessly clean. I was concerned over sharing the 3 bathrooms, but there was no problem, and they were well maintained all the time. But most of all, this was one of the best parts of our 28 day trip to Italy in September. Simona put together a picnic basket for us that was totally yums, and then we took their bikes and embarked upon one of the most romantic days we have experienced in a very long time. We will be back, over and over , if we can. Thank you Simona and Gulio for making this a truly wonderful to Lucca and Italy.
