There is actually nothing I could complain about when it comes to my experience of La Principessa. The location is great, the gardens and the pool are stunning, I am definitely going back. The staff is kind and helpful, breakfast is very good, the rooms are clean, tidy and the furnishing is really nice, the views are breathtaking. I'm not sure if there is lunch or dinner service available but there are some very good restaurants nearby.

We appreciate very much your very affectionate thought regarding the experience at La
Principessa.

We are happy that you appreciated the location of the villa, the gardens and the pool.

Our guests can enjoy meals at the restaurant open for lunch (garden by the the pool) and dinner (in the park in the summer time)

We look forward to welcoming you again to add a chapter to your fairytale.

a wonderful old villa with wonderful atmosphere in the palatial rooms. Yes, in parts it was a tad shabby but the friendly welcoming and efficient staff were far more important. The decor is eclectic in parts but very striking. Our bedroom walls were covered in fabric as were the sitting room and other rooms. The evening meal we had was good, again with excellent service. Breakfast was more than generous with a huge choice and again attentive service. The linen was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. It is about 15 minute's drive from Lucca, also close to Pisa and easy to reach Florence. This hotel more than met our expectations and we would recommend it.

Stayed for a week from 5th August 2012. Staff were very helpful and the building and grounds were beautiful. Ideal for a quiet break and very central for touring the Tuscany area.
Food was excellent. My only criticism would be that it was a bit too quiet, never anyone around if you just wanted a nice glass of wine and a chat, but I assume that their main clientele do not want this???

Beautiful hotel in a perfect setting to enjoy Lucca. We said "Wow" when we pulled up the driveway and continued to wow our way around this beautiful, character filled villa just outside Lucca. The pool is perfect, the gardens pretty, the rooms huge and totally fabulous and the common areas such as the wonderful sitting room just can't be beat. 3m high ceilings with wood beams and wonderful silk wall coverings - each room is different. The children had a fresco on their wall on the first floor but we had a vast balcony on our 2nd floor room. The food was great and the service excellent. The only problem was we were having such a nice time it was hard to drag ourselves away to explore Lucca!

Room Tip: I liked the high ceilings and balcony of our 2nd floor room but the children loved the fresco on their first floor room (but no balcony and much lower ceilings).

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.
