“A great place to stay”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

This was our third stay at Villa Cheli. Set in a rural location at the end of a long driveway off the Lucca to Pisa road, this country house hotel has been modernised very tastefully and by now the swimming pool at the rear.will have been completed. Rooms are spacious, large windows with shutters helping to keep the bedroom cool. Breakfast was of a good standard and the evening meal (Euros 25 per person including wine) extremely good. We will certainly go back next time we are in the area.

The hotel was OK and good value but nothing exciting. The insulation isn't great so you can hear everything around you and if it's a bit chilly you'll be cold at night. The building is nice and the staff very friendly and helpful however the breakfast is uninspiring.

Conclusion: Good place but lack the wow factor.

Villa Cheli is a beautiful country house set in the Tuscan countryside just south of Lucca. It has been tastefully renovated - so while the reception rooms and balconies retain their former elegance it also has the convenience of a lift and air conditioning in bedrooms and the benefit of a superb new outdoor pool.
But what really sets it apart is the staff - it felt more like staying with friends than in a hotel. So whether you wanted a minor problem solved, or to know which is the best beach in the area, or what the local trattorias are like ... nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed here so we could attend a friend's wedding in nearby Lucca. The reception was held at Villa Cheli and both the organisation and the food (all 7 courses) were perfect.

Villa Cheli is located in the tuscan hills, near Lucca. It is situated a few miles outside of the city en route to Pisa. My partner and I had our wedding reception there this August. Mario and his staff helped us plan a fabulous 8 course dinner, pre aperitivo and party. He was consistantly available and attentive to our needs.
Many of our guests also stayed at Villa Cheli during the week of the wedding. They were offered a very interesting discount (as part of the wedding party) and made good use of the pool, gardens and idyllic setting.
Together with Villa Cheli's beauty and Mario's professionality, our wedding turned out to be a massive success! Not to mention a brilliant holiday for our friends and family.

After many troubles in finding a good place to stay during holiday in Toscana we found this peaceful and wonderfull hotel. It was everything what we were looking for and expected from Toscana residence. Beatifull house located in good place, near Lucca,ViaReggio and Firenza.
Villa Cheli woudnt be such a good experience without excellent service from Mario and others. Really we were suprised by such a good welcome, kindness etc..

Our stay at Villa Cheli was wonderfull, you really feel at home within a day.
Mario and all the staff are very hospitable and nice people, nothing is asked too much! The dogs complete the picture!
The villa itself is beautiful and the surroundings are also beautiful.
I would recommend it to everyone!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hello everybody! I am the owner of Hotel Ristorante Villa Cheli and my name is Vincent. Today I decided to write a review to tell a little bit of our house .. Villa Cheli is a colonial villa built in 1700 , formerly owned by the family Cheli . The last owner was a sculptor , a sculptor of chalk. During the restoration , in fact , we found some of his works in the attic .. And we thought .. Why not share it with our guests ? Coming to visit us in fact you can admire them within the walls (internal and external ) of the Villa .. A bit ' as we were in a museum. The hotel rooms are located on three floors .. The first floor, the main floor of the Villa, are situated the suite and two rooms overlooking the balcony .. The second floor rooms with large windows and high ceilings on the third floor .. Instead there are the most romantic rooms with sloping roof with exposed beams and small skylights in the ceiling. On the ground floor, in addition to the reception, we have our own restaurant, open for the summer season , from March to November , that in addition to the typical dishes of Italian cuisine in general , it also offers some taste of the Tuscan tradition and Lucca. And for relaxation ? Do not miss our pool and our wellness area! All the staff and me we will be happy to welcome you in the warmest way possible and help you with all your needs ... more   less
