We stayed in the famely room; great room for 2 parents and 2 kids. Lot's of space with airco - nice!
Small windows, but who cares. Breakfast great. Did not stay for diner. A lunch near pool area was allright.
Superb old villa with charm. Pool is nice but only 32 beds/ seats. Quickly full on weekends.
I would recommend this hotel overall.

We spent 2 nights at this villa and use this as a base to see Lucca, Florence and Pisa.
It was a perfect spot. The Villa is old and very beautiful. Rooms are spacious and in traditional old world styling as are the bathrooms. Old chequered tiling etc but very clean and comfortable.
The dining rooms are just beautiful, as are the outdoor areas were you sit for a lovely outdoor buffet breakfast. The pool was a lovely break for the heat of July.
The staff were incredibly friendly and and extremely helpful. We especially love the younger girl who took care of the breakfast. She is studying tourism and spent a little extra time with us and was most helpful with advice.
The only thing was that they were the only people to charge extra for wifi internet. (they did discount it though)
A lovely Tuscan experience.
Definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Take a small travel kettle.

Used the villa for 8 days as our "base" to discover Lucca and the surrounding areas. 2 days at the beach, 2 days up in the mountains exploring the local vineyards, several days wandering the streets of Lucca & Pisa. It is an old villa refurbished and beautifully maintained. Entire Staff is excellent and could not be more helpful. Pool is an oasis of coolness after a day of exploring. Highly recommend.

The villa is nestled in the hills.
Great pool area to relax at, surrounded by luscious gardens.
Excellent breakfast buffet with nice outdoor seating.
Rooms were nice with new, modern bathrooms and spacious showers.

We spent six nights in this hotel, the staff were very good and our room was fine, BUT our holiday here was spoilt by the lack of amenities outside. The swimming pool area is cheap and unattractive, there are insufficient loungers and the chairs are uncomfortable. The outside area where dinner is taken is poor and unattractive. The outside area where lunch is taken is very poor - a few tables on bare earth. The garden has no comfortable garden furniture or shades and the lawn is mainly weeds. Lastly, the breakfast is the same each day which after a few days becomes very boring.
