We are returning guest. It is an enchanted beautiful place. This villa/hotel is a real classy retreat. It is far from the noisy beach crowd of the Versilia beaches but close enough, 19 km plus, to hop in your car and get there in a short time. Couple of minutes from Lucca. The building is situated in a huge garden,... More

I visited with my nieces and sister in law and we all loved this beautiful villa, especially the very inviting swimming pool. It was a welcome retreat to cool down from the Tuscan sunshine. Rooms are decorated sympathetically with the age of the villa, and even had fabric wall paper. The bathrooms were updated, and comfortable. We stayed in the... More
