Make sure you book their beautiful large apartment with high ceilings. Lots of details and warm Tuscan colors. Sleep under the old rafters and feel the history! Also the best breakfast buffet on our Italian car trip.

When we arrived we were taken to the "new" Villa Gemma di Elena, located just at the rear of the car park, and wow! The villa has 5 rooms, all lovely (I had a look) but the best has to be the Suite la Mura...which we stayed on for 4 nights. A huge, bright, freshly painted and refurbished room with... More

My partner and I spent 5 nights at La Gemma Di Elena in May 2016, We found it Quirky and basic but more importantly warm, welcoming and very clean, the staff are helpful and friendly and breakfast is more than adequate with a reasonable choice of meats, cheese, cereals and fruit and as much tea and coffee as you desire....

Room was good, bathroom a bit cold and moist. At nighg its a bit too cold in the room. Breakfast with great expresso was a bit too simple. However a... More

Pros: It was easy to find with the signage once we knew the street from using Google maps. We stayed in the Pablo room, my friend and I slept in separate beds instead of the one large one, and the twin bed was small but comfortable from what my friend said. The area was very quaint and decorated nice, with... More

It was really good to be there, more heating would be helpful, breakfaat and service was very good, parking facility is excellent! The price and the service was proportional, so I recommend it to everyone, who likes Toscana and wants to be in the heart of Lucca!

Pefect location, fascinating building, warm welcome. Reasonable breakfast. Very good value for money. Not for those who have problems with stairs,as it is up a fairly steep flight of stairs or who are fussy about decor. The shower was excellent, making ineresting use of the available space. There is no air-con and as it was humid we had to sleep... More

It was a lovely wee place to stay in the heart of Lucca. I arrived late and this was no problem - after a long journey from Geneva I was hot and tired and it was a little haven. It was really clean. The staff were lovely and helpful and the location was just great. I would love to come... More

We arrived late in Lucca, rang the door bell the to B&B and a very nice lady opened the door, buzzed the parking door open too (yes, there is parking available). We met her at the gate and she walked us to our room for the night. It was an apartment!!! We were so excited, and it was simply gorgeous,... More
