I had originally planned on staying in Lucca but I'm so glad I chose this B&B instead. Dario & Maria, the owners, provided such a great Tuscan experience for me. If you love your food and wine, this is a great place to stay, as Dario knows the area's food & wine with such detail, and can provide cooking classes and wine tastings on request. Nothing was ever a hassle as my comfort and enjoyment appeared to be their number one priority. Whilst it is set in the Tuscan hills outside the major Tuscan towns, the train station of Pescia is only 10 minutes away, and Dario was always willing to drive me down/pick me up, with Florence, Lucca & Pisa all within a 30 minute train ride. Despite the 1600s origin of the building, the services and amenities provided were all first class, with modern plumbing, wifi and heating provided, as well as bar, TV, gym and playstation. If you are wanting the authentic Tuscan experience in a beautiful, quiet setting, I could not suggest a better place.
