I am giving this two stars only because a rating was required in order to review. I didn't have the opportunity to experience the hotel because We were also canceled one day prior to our arrival due to a power outage caused by a change in the service provider. It was unfortunate timing wise, but clearly out of the hotel's...

They cancelled our reservation (booked through Exp..ia) two days before we were supposed to show up, when we were already in Italy. This was the second hotel booked for this trip through E..edia where we were cancelled. We made other arrangements, which turned out to be better. Needless to say, we will not be using the service again nor considering...

The location is great. It's a big villa located on a beautiful spot on a short driving distance from Lucca, Pisa and the coast. The room was great, spacious and clean. The staff is friendly but the service is not the level you'd expect of a 5 star location. For example we didn't get any drinking water in the room,...

A gem tucked away a bit - only a bit - off the Tuscan highlights trail. Ten minutes west of Lucca you will find this small, gracious hotel with very clean, comfortable, well appointed suites in a expertly restored country villa with a lovely pool and deck overlooking an historic town. We used it for a two-night recovery from trans-Atlantic...

Albergo Villa Casanova is a gem!! We were more than pleasantly surprised bij the exceptional friendly and welcoming staff in a superbe setting. The Albergo has 14 very spacious beautiful rooms with equally beautiful views over the valley which is covered with woodlands. There is a swimming pool and tennis court both very well positioned. All materials used during the...

A truly special place set high up a hill with views of Lucca far across the valley. Very peaceful environment, lovely rooms and extremely hospitable owner and team. Perfect place from which to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life or one's fellow tourists in Lucca or Pisa. Have already booked to return next month.

We were warmly welcomed, given a lovely upgrade to a superb suite that looked to the walls of Lucca through Nozzano Castle in the distance. We lounged by the divine pool; we swam in it too and generally admired this beautiful peaceful estate. The reason I cannot give it 5* is two fold. It was a Saturday night and we...

It feels more like visiting in a private luxury villa. Where to start? The suites, for it is suites only, are gorgeous with lots of space, attractive furniture, very comfy beds and superb bathrooms; best to book room with views down the valley, where you can see for at least 15km down to Lucca. The service is so personal and...

I think the highest accolade I can give AVC is that, within a day of arriving, I booked to come back a few weeks later! I doubt many travellers, whether new, or old and seasoned (like me), will fail to love with it. I'd go as far as to say that if you don't, it's you not them! The rooms...

My wife and I have been visiting Villa Casanova every year since it opened and it is a truly spectacular place located just outside a small village called Balbano close to the local town called Lucca. We fell in love with the place and got engaged here, named our son after the closest town (Lucca) brought friends and family here...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Albergo Villa Casanova is the result of a complete renovation of an 18th-century Tuscan farmhouse set in 360 acres of mixed woodland just ten minutes from Lucca. Newly reopened in December 2009, Albergo Villa Casanova is now a distinctive and relaxed, luxury boutique hotel with 14 incredibly spacious suites, restaurant, magnificent terraces, infinity swimming pool and tennis court. The valley of Lucca and the tower of Castello Nozzano can be viewed from the hotel and the area is ideal for walking, cycling and exploring the historical walled town of Lucca, home to Puccini. It's also a perfect location to just relax with a book and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Numerous festivals take place throughout the year. The world famous Puccini Festival takes place at the open-air theatre at Torre del Lago, a few Kilometres from the hotel. Albergo Villa Casanova has its own chapel (see section on Weddings) and several adjoining country houses, one of which dates back to the 15th century. The original owners were the Balbani family who later gave their name to the locality. ... more   less
