We stayed in Villa Alessandra more than once, lately in april last year and keep finding this place absolutely lovely. In the midst of a typical Tuscan/Lucca countryside, far enough from the city not to be disburted by noises or pollution, yet close enough to be in the center of Lucca in roughly 15 minutes.
The old classy and aristocratic house is charming and beautifully decorated, exceptionnally well kept, and the rooms are spacious, extremely comfortable, each with its own decoration style,
One is welcomed by the most pleasant hosts. Of course they are hosts, not valets ( as pretended by one of the reviewers...) and you cannot ask a gentleman in his early seventies to carry your bags. They are very culturred people, know the countryside and Lucca very well and will guide you with intelligent and acute advice.
