Handy for Lucca and just a short walk (albeit up a steep dark hill) to Montecarlo, a nice hilltop village.
Modern rooms with clean white sheets, good towels, low large beds, modern bathrooms, pllnty of space and good air conditioning. Only real problem was no staff to fill up the toilet rolls which twice ran out (and we're not big users ahem). Why spares can't be left is beyond me as it did annoy us and fridge which sort of worked but didn't really. Often there was no-one around which meant a little waiting in a comfortable reception arrea, but staff were exceedingly helpful and all spoke a variety of languages to help.
OK breakfast, perhaps a little bit too "pre-packaged" but good choice although the coffee machine was a bit slow and didn't produce hot enough water for tea and bread was not fresh, instead they relied on cheese slices, sliced bread and "plastic" ham. But plenty of fresh fruit, so no need to go hungry and lots of nice places to sit awhile too.
A few friendly dogs keeping us company, and a little kitten who was determined to annoy the dogs - often very successfully.
The restaurant is very good although it was closed one night because of the football which was disappointing as we had already booked in. Turns out it's run as a separate business but for a high quality place, a bit annoying having to be forced to walk/drive for a meal. Good wine made on-site and certainly as good as the best places you'll find.
Great pool, large, warm, plenty of sunbeds and shaded areas and a kids playground too - the outside space is really lovely and clean.
There were events every night except the night they closed the restaurant which meant we were able to listen to weddings, music and other events - very pleasant on holiday.
At E120 a night height of summer, this is slightly pricey but the quality reflects it. just a few little niggles that separate it from being the very best.
