After spending a few days in Rome, we were looking forward to a quite restful week in Tuscany. Arriving at the hotel by car, we were immediately taken by the beautiful surroundings. It is a old style villa sitting at the foot of a hill, surrounded by forest of trees and bamboo bushes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We booked a room for a family of four, and were pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was, there were two spacious double rooms, with a separate bathroom. Room were nicely set with a old style cottage feel. Wifi is not free but it is based on per use basis, so we paid €10 for the use for the whole 6 days. We had a couple of dinners in the hotel out in the garden, and they were wonderful experience, with nice food, and friendly staff, and beautifully surroundings, although I would prefer to have more choice in the menu. Breakfast is also good with plenty of choices. We also had a few lunches on the lawns near the swimming pool, it was very relaxing and enjoyable experience.
The hotel is only a couple of miles from Lucca city centre, and about half an hour drive from Pisa, so a very good spot to tour the region.
Overall a truly enjoyable stay, and we would definitely come back
