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

After 20 hours of flying and a 5 hour drive from Rome, we arrived in this area to find that the hotel we were booked into had closed the Month before - Locanda d'Elisa - and had not notified us. A wonderful man at a coffee shop suggested this hotel - which was across the street. They couldn't have been... More

Beautiful period style hotel with gorgeous garden and pool area. Enjoyed cocktails lazing by the pool in the afternoon and dinner on the patio under the trees in the evening. 2-3 minutes drive from Lucca in quiet garden setting. The only annoyance was the mosquitoes at night in the bedroom - but we still had a wonderful stay nevertheless and... More

Attended a retreat here, and fell in love with this welcoming hotel. Functioning as a B&B, you are made to feel at home the moment you arrive. The grounds are beautiful and encourage reflection and peace. Breakfast is a huge spread each day, and dinner is magnificent as well. Make sure you ask Samuele to make you a cappuccino or... More

We stumbled upon Villa La Principessa by accident, and were so pleased to discover this underrated gem. It's located conveniently close to Lucca and Pisa, and the staff, service and amenities were top notch. We loved our window looking out over the gardens, pool and grounds, and had a lovely and peaceful stay.

At first sight it's lovely and that continues into the hotel. The staff are always trying to help and are very pleasant. I agree with the previous reviewer, the position is perfect for Pisa & Lucca, and in the main rooms the décor is quality. Our room (121) was a free upgrade and it was large with a great bathroom...

Beautiful and very clean hotel, special decoration, pool outside, big rooms (superior). I recommend this hotel because it is perfect for a trip to Pisa and Lucca and because it is near the highway, but in a very quiet place.
