“A Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Anna and her husband were the best hosts! Rooms were adorable and very very clean! Bikes were included, food was good, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! They picked us up from the train station and made us feel right at home! Thank you!!

We stayed three days at Anna's B&B in Lucca, which is located around 5 min cycling outside the center of the city. Anna is friendly and helpful, and she made our stay fantastic. The breakfast is simple but delicious, and we really got the Italian feeling while looking into the garden while eating the breakfast in the morning. Cycles can be borrowed (free of charge) at the B&B.

Wonderful Bed & Breakfast near Lucca. Anna is a fantastic host, whenever we would ask her for information she would give us a comprehensive overview of all options and she would buy maps for us. She was very kind and always in a good mood, she runs her B&B with so much love and enthusiasm. Al Tondone is not far from Lucca and Lucca is only a ten-minute bike ride (you can borrow the bikes at Al Tondone). Great breakfast and the backyard is a peaceful area to relax. All together this was one of the best B&B’s we have ever stayed and we would recommend it to anyone.

We have recently returned from a most enjoyable stay at this delightful, comfortable B&B run by Anna. She deserves all the compliments paid to her by previous guests. She really couldn't do enough for us and made us most welcome. Lucca is a beautiful unspoiled city and best explored by bicycle which Anna provides for guests. Once we had gained confidence we had a great time on the bikes. At first we were surprised they had no gears - but after our first ride to the city we realised that they are not necessary. We only booked Al Tondone about 10 days beforehand as our plans for a longer stay in Florence did not work out. What a good choice we made.

Anna and Benito were wonderful hosts. Al Tondone is a perfect little piece of Italian countryside, with grapes growing on the vines, roosters crowing in the distance and a cosy atmosphere. The breakfast buffet were amazing, with perfect local cheeses and meats plus yummy crusty buns. Anna gave great suggestions for dinners and outings and we were never disappointed. It was a great place for our Lucca portion of our trip.
Grazie

We stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed every minute of it. Anna is so helpful picking us up on arrival and delivering us back to the bus depot when we left plus giving us a short tour by car when she went into the town. Al Tonedone is on the outskirts of Lucca and a short walk into the countryside. Bikes are provided but we chose to walk into the town which took us about 25 minutes and is a good way to see the outskirts of Lucca. We were in a large beautifully furnished room with an ensuite and very comfortable bed. There was a good choice of food available at breakfast and additional choices were made for a vegetarian who was staying there. It is very quiet and quite pleasant just sitting in the garden or conservatory where breakfast you also had breakfast.

Absolutely beautiful house and gardens. Anna was so helpful with everything, she gave some excellent recommendations towards restaurants and what to do and where to go. She especially and generously accommodated for my coeliac diet! The place itself is easy to find, once you have done the cycle once [on the free bikes they provide] you feel familiar enough with the route . Beds are really comfy and the hosue is really clean. Had a great authentic italian feel to this part of our trip and are forever grateful!
