We have just returned from a great stay at Tenuta San Pietro. The hotel is situated 7km in the hills above Lucca, and a car is essential, as well as a good map and SAT NAV, although the hotel is well signposted off the Viale Europa Road.
We had a very warm welcome and offered some lunch on the terrace. The view from the terrace is second to none, with spectacular scenery, Tuscany manor houses dotted around and views down across the Valley to Lucca, with Mountains in the background.
The room was modern and clean with views out to Lucca and a seating area outside. The hotel has a number of seating areas inside where you can read or have a drink and admire the view. There is a computer with internet access which is free but no Wi Fi throughout the hotel.
The pool area is compact with limited seating areas, around 3 in total but we were always able to get a space.
The drinks at the pool were pricy, 7 euros for a small bottle of beer and 3 glasses of wine at lunch were around 26 euros, 75 cl of water was around 3 euros, so not too bad.
The real selling point of this place is the food, which is excellent. We ate at the hotel on 4 evenings, and each meal was top notch. The prices are however on the expensive side ranging from around 15 euros for a starter / pasta to 24 euros for a main, wine starts at 25 euros. In the high season, and from Thursday to Saturday, I would recommend booking ahead as the restaurant does get quite full.
Lucca is definitely work a visit and I would recommend hiring some bikes to ride around the City walls and through the town, great fun for around 3 euros an hour.
Another place which is worth a visit is fote dei marmi, which is a busy up market costal resort, they have a market on a Thursday morning.
All in all a great place to stay and we would certainly visit again for the food and views alone.
