This was one of the most spectacular hotel experiences we have ever had. The room -- rooms really -- was spacious and beautiful with amazing views of the valley. We were actually given a choice so we saw another room which was also beautiful but with less gorgeous views (we would have been very happy to stay there too). The bathroom was enormous and well appointed with a large tub plus a large separate spacious shower (great pressure) and double sink. The staff (including the owner) were knowledgeable, warm, gracious and helpful. It was convenient to Lucca and the shore -- we even drove up to Cinque Terre...an extraordinary day trip capped off with a great dinner at the hotel restaurant. The entire experience was delightful -- our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Maybe next time (and I do hope there will be a next time...soon)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Albergo Villa Casanova is the result of a complete renovation of an 18th-century Tuscan farmhouse set in 360 acres of mixed woodland just ten minutes from Lucca. Newly reopened in December 2009, Albergo Villa Casanova is now a distinctive and relaxed, luxury boutique hotel with 14 incredibly spacious suites, restaurant, magnificent terraces, infinity swimming pool and tennis court. The valley of Lucca and the tower of Castello Nozzano can be viewed from the hotel and the area is ideal for walking, cycling and exploring the historical walled town of Lucca, home to Puccini. It's also a perfect location to just relax with a book and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Numerous festivals take place throughout the year. The world famous Puccini Festival takes place at the open-air theatre at Torre del Lago, a few Kilometres from the hotel. Albergo Villa Casanova has its own chapel (see section on Weddings) and several adjoining country houses, one of which dates back to the 15th century. The original owners were the Balbani family who later gave their name to the locality. ... more less
