“A very comfy B&B in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Lucca. The B&B is a short stroll from the town walls, or an even quicker trip on a couple of the free bikes (well worth cycling the walls before entering the town itself). There was plenty of parking available and it was quite easy to find. We had a nice double room, large bathroom and a reasonably comfy bed. Breakfast was better than average and the family running the business couldn't have been more helpful (I managed to lock the safe without knowing the code, lock us out of the room and leave a bag in a restaurant: all sorted by our hosts). A minor negative which I had read previously was the passing ambulances.... I did notice it a couple of times, not much they can do about it but wouldn't stop me staying again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We arrived around mid day & our room was ready: no.5 with twin beds, TV, nice white bathroom & lots of windows. You could here the ambulances at night as there's a hospital around the corner, although this didn't bother me it did my travelling companion. Free wifi & bikes were great. The breakfast was ace. Soft boiled eggs were done to perfection & a good buffet on offer. Would certainly stay here again. Free parking & just a few mins walk to the town.

A small, quiet, clean, family owned B & B outside the Walls of Lucca. Friendly staff, clean air conditioned rooms with TV and mini-bar, fresh bedding and towels every day, pool and hot-tub, rentable bicycles (would recommend cycling round the city Walls). Wide variety of hot and cold food for breakfast. Highly recommended for a couple or family with an older child.

Set in its own gardens,complete with pool and hot tub, Villa Romantica is only 200m from the Lucca city walls. It is a really tranquil setting yet close enough to amble into the old town, eat, shop and drink.
It's rooms are well decorated, clean, spacious and have excellent air con.
Free wi-fi and an excellent breakfast top it off. It is a well run family establishment who could not have been more helpful in giving us advice during our stay. They even have free loan bikes so you can take round the city walls for a cool evening jaunt.
July is HOT, but if you need somewhere tranquil to write your next book or just escape...this is the place

Room Tip: We had a rear ground floor which is not an obvious choice, but as it was totally protected from dire...

The thought of visiting Tuscany for the third time was overwhelming. We were watching a concert in one of the main squares, and we needed accommodation in Lucca. Having already been there a decade ago, we knew that getting into the old (fortified) part of the town was going to be difficult - especially since we were staying for 4 days. We also knew that we could have stayed somewhere in the countryside - the area abunds with these types of accommodation - but this time round we wanted to be as close as possible to the centre, and since we were visiting in July, we were looking for a pool too. Villa Romantica proved to be the perfect spot for this. Situated next to the Lucca stadium (not sure if it will be noisier when the football season starts) it is literally a 10 minute walk to inside the walls of the old town. This villa - very much in the style of a B+B you would find in the UK - has its own private parking. It has a very private outdoor garden, and the inside is very sweet. The cleanliness is impeccable, and the owners (family run, born and bred Lucchesi) are extremely friendly without being imposing. We had the suite above the entrance (which included a bedroom, a shower room and an additional living room), and the only thing which was not that great was the view. But who cares... we were only using it as a base, and we were certainly not planning to spend the entire days there - who would when you are in the middle of Tuscany? Breakfast is very good - nothing special - but honest and fresh, and more importantly always served with a smile. We made use of the pool, and we also enjoyed the hot tub. Honestly, this is a treasure and I will definitely be recommending it to all those who are planning to spend some time in this area.

Room Tip: The suite was extremely comfortable... and probable excellent for families with kids. However, I am...

Stayed here for three nights and was blown away by the quality of the place. Rooms, breakfast, location, service all top class-faultless throughout. Family friendly.
Swimming pool, jacuzzi, lovely garden to sit out.
