We visited the Principessa in August for a wedding anniversary dinner. "Manuel" was serving that night and it was very early on in the evening when we realised we were launching into a re-take of Fawlty Towers!!

They gave people the wrong food - the host was not given a starter and it was suggested he could do without!!!! My husbands pudding had already collapsed into a heap on his plate before it was even served.

When it came for coffee I asked for a Capuccino and was winked at suggesting I would 'prefer' an expresso - I stressed I did not want an expresso even though it was obviously more convenient for them to produce than my choice!!

Great character hotel but please think twice before paying exalted prices for a very minimal meal.

La principessa is an elegant villa right outside the wonderful town of Lucca. The well airconditioned rooms were large, the beds firm and the linens crisp. The food at Principessa was wonderful. They grew their own produce in a beautiful garden that added to the ambience of the grounds. The pool was refreshing and wonderful, and the staff very friendly. Would absolutely stay again!

This famous villa is great to start a vacation. The moment you enter the villa, you're in a different world. Large rooms, classy furnishings and a fantastic garden. Also, definitely don't go out at night, as you can have great dinner in the garden. Don't stay more than 2-3 nights however. There's much more nice things to be seen in Italy.
