“A Great Introduction to Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This delightful villa was our first hotel on our tour of Italy, and what a great choice. The bedroom was delightful and the bed really comfortable. A lovely indoor area to sit, read and relax made up for the fact that Italy was not having great weather in May. The staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. We ate in the villa on the two evenings that we were there and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We rather felt like Italian Gentry residing at our own Villa. Definitely to be recommended. Thank you to all the staff for ensuring our first experience of Italy was so brilliant. Sue & Trev Peake

A lovely old villa in its own grounds. Peaceful Location with great views of the mountains. hard to fault this Hotel.
Very attentive staff , Manger always around and freindly and cheerful. Lovely well appointed rooms, beautifully renovated.

Nicely maintained grounds and a lovely pool area.. just a tad too chilly to actually use when we were there in early June.
Breakfast was a real delight ! taken either on the patio under the lovely awning with a view of the gardens and the mountains or inside the little breakfast room - Great choices , freshly baked rolls and a lovely choice of cooked breakfast foods available.

Could any improvements be made .. Our only area of disappointment was that the evening menu just did not seem especially enticing .. and we chose to eat out each evening ...great choices available with a short ( twisty ! ) drive. We would have liked to have eaten in this lovely hotel at least once.

The grounds are so nice .... it would also be nice to have a comfy chair or two strategically placed around the garden, so you can just sit out and drink it all in.

We stayed for 4 nights .and frankly were sorry to leave !

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely .. The superior rooms are Mountain facing and well worth asking for. The v...

Beautiful small hotel in an authentic Tuscan villa in a large garden with swimming pool. Located In the hills around Lucca, a car is needed.
Location very quiet: you just hear the birds singing.
Rooms and bathrooms (shower) are very nice.
Good breakfast.
Meals on the terrace are lovely, as in the small cosy restaurant. Good wines.
The staff is excellent.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms are good here!

Spent a week's holiday at this hotel - everything was perfect. The hotel is gorgeous, as is the location. The staff are wonderful - nothing is too much trouble. The food and wine were very tasty indeed.

Excellent value and location. Be careful leaving property because the Italians move quickly down the small side roads adjacent to the property. Manager makes sure he helps you in anyway possible.
super breakfast and excellent romantic dinner on premises. Would stay here again and remain longer.

I loooove Villa Marta. Its decor is everything I would expect in a 18th century country Villa. It has all the tasteful period character with Toille headboard and bed cover, but nothing extravagant or overly done. The room is spacious and it has all the modern accomodation I would find in an American hotel. It's so out of the way that it has a very serene feel to it. Its restaurant food is the best I ate on my recent Italy trip. Its people were very friendly. I wish I stayed there longer. It's a perfect spot to get away or to visit nearby Lucca/Pisa. I actually made a day trip to Cinque Terre from there.

The only negative thing is it's very hard to find that place, even with GPS. I had to get to Lucca before my Garmin GPS would find that small tiny town it's in. I had to drive into that small town before Garmin could find the hotel. Even then, the GPS stopped at a spot before a bridge and said we had arrived. That hotel was still a distance away. I drove through that bridge and then I found signs directing me there.
