We loved this place because it was so .... Italy! Getting there late at night was not the easiest. The road is a challenge, but manageable in a van! The reward is SO worth it. The views of the valley were beautiful! The atmosphere was absolutely amazing! It was a bit out of town, which is what we loved. The building was beautiful and the grounds were even better. We took walks on the road, and were amazed. We were even treated to fireflies after dark. Pool was great and Emilio followed us down with extra chairs and wine.
Lucca was a super fun place to visit, even in the drizzle.
Breakfast was WAY above average ... organic and local. Such a treat! Homemade cakes and bread. Meats, cheeses, veggies, eggs to order, cappuccinos, awesome! Emilio was a great host and cook. We had the best gnocchi ever at our evening meal.
We SO enjoyed our stay for the magical location and quintessential Italian atmosphere. I REALLY hope to stay here again!
