“a true Tuscany experience”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

My family stayed overnight at Casa biancalana and we had a beautiful experience. Kids loved it as we did.
Yes it is a bit oldish and may not have all commodities you find in a new venue but the house is extremely charming, the hosts are very welcoming and friendly, and you find yourself in a true relaxing environment.
Breakfast is great, beds are good. what else do you need? Would definitely recommend!

Very nice, rustic and charming.beautiful old building. The garden is like a fairyTale, beautiful ,mystic and the pool is great. The room was perfect for the three of us and the kitchen had everything we needed. It is a bit far to go foot in to Lucca, need to take a taxi our have a car. No restaurants in walking distance. The owner Atillia made you welcome and the breakfast is very nice. Lucca is beautiful and definitely worth it.

We booked a family apartment for seven nights, self catering and had a wonderful week enjoying the sunshine in the pretty and private garden with pool, exploring the town, churches and history of Lucca, and visiting the Cinque Terre for the day. Our hosts were friendly and charming without being "too friendly" and gave us free use of two bicycles for the week. The rustic apartment suited us fine, the air conditioning worked throughout, the bed was comfortable and the location quiet for sleeping. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at Casa Biancalana in July with our family and spend a lovely 5 days.
Attilia and her husband are both lovely and warm persons, always prepared to help. The house is just a few kilometers away from Lucca. Tip: rent a Vespa or a car because it is just a little too far to go on foot. The breakfast Attilia makes is excellent and the rooms are tidy with good airco.
There is a nice swimming pool and beautiful garden to spend some hours with a good book.
I want to say thanks Attilia, love to come again some time!

I stayed at Casa Biancalana several years ago with a friend and we had four fantastic days. This year I took my husband back to celebrate our second anniversary and overall we had a lovely stay and I would definitely go back again.

That said when we first arrived I was quite disappointed. The rustic charm that I remembered was now just rustic. It is a beautiful very old guest house with lots of chandeliers and antiques.

The kitchen facilties had seen better days and the pond area outside the room we had booked was so overgrown it was like stepping into the Amazon jungle, complete with Mozzies. We talked to owner and manager Atilia about our disappointment and she immediately moved us giving us a choice of all other apartments. We stayed in Lavinia which having looked through all is definitely the best one.

They have upgraded the two free bikes which is great although they hadnt been looked after very well so we spent lots of time with chains coming off and a trip to a bike doctor in the middle of town. Slightly disappointed that we werent offered a discount for the £15 we paid to hire another bike for the day and £10 to repair it. But hey Attilia is endearing and in the scheme of things they were free to start with.

This place is slightly out of town but as Lucca is really flat it takes ten mins on the bike to get into the centre and its a great way to see the walled, car free city.

There is a supermarket around the corner which is open every day until 9pm (no siesta) which is excellent value. Atilia makes the most stunning breakfast each day for an extra 8 euros.

A tip if you're going to stay here is to take your own washing up liquid, cloth, salt and pepper. The cooking facilities are very basic and could do with an upgrade soon but all in all it is a lovely place to stay and we met some great people as it has around 5 apartments.

I gave this 3 stars for cleanliness because whilst Attilia makes the beds and tidies kitchen/bathroom each day some of the cutlery and kitchen equipement needs an upgrade.

Room Tip: Definitely Lavinia unless they sort the garden out then its Katerina

We spent 6 wonderful nights here-couldn't ask for more. Attila's hospitality is second to none.Breakfasts are fit for a king and our room was outstanding. We had our a rental car so were able to go on lots of day trips.

My husband and two older children stayed at this hotel/Villa for 4 nights at the end of september. What a lovely secret hotel, although it was very difficult to find even with the Sat Nav as it is on the busy road and you can go past it easily. The garden was my favourite area with a small pool and pretty plants . You will have to watch out for the mosquitos and bring plenty of spray!
The apartment was lovely, we stayed in Chiessiata on the ground floor which had a small courtyard to the main house. The bathroom ,living room and kitchen were on the ground floor with the two bedrooms up a spiral staircase. The main bedroom is quite dark and you have to have the lights on and the other room for the kids was very small with twin beds not enough room for any cases so they had to stay downstairs. The rooms and bathroom were very clean and homely. Overall the Villa is very old shabby chic but interesting. The breakfast room is nice and the owner Atillia made you welcome. You need a car if you are staying here as it is a little way out of Lucca.

Room Tip: Take mosquito spray and hire a car.
