“A real find in Tuscany!”
Reviewed February 27, 2006

We stumbled on this place via the internet when looking for somewhere to stay for a few days near Lucca on our drive from England to the island of Elba. What a find it turned out to be! The recently-restored villa had magnificent bedrooms with huge beds and excellent bathrooms. The view from the peaceful gardens was lovely too. If only they included breakfasts ...!! We still talk about the restaurant four years later - fantastic dishes cooked with the finest local ingredients and so many choices and courses for so little money. The quality, quantity and choice of dishes and courses was superb, as was the service (the place is run by two brothers, as far as I can recall). It was a shame the service was rather 'laid back' when it came to replacing a light bulb and trying to pay the bill at the end of our 3-day stay - but that's Tuscany, I guess!! The quality and cooking of the food was explained in great detail and with great pride and we were allowed 'tasters' where possible. The meal would have cost at least three or four times as much in London and the service and food would proabbly not have been anywhere near as good. Montecarlo is pleasant but very quiet and with very few shops. There is, however, another terrific and even cheaper restaurant/cafe there - La Terassa, I think - with such tasty food and a truly magical view over the valley day and night. You can eat in or out (on the terrace!). A car is essential to make best use of staying at Villa La Nina. We will return one day ... hopefully by then they will have a fantastic swimming pool and offer B&B! Prices have shot up since we stayed there but still excellent value.

From the moment we drove up, our stay was perfect and memorable in every way. The rooms were gorgeous with high ceilings and large shuttered windows that looked out over the countryside. We were awakened to the call of roosters in the town below and would look out at the mist hovering over the little town below. The restuarant was fantastic and the service was wonderful. We spent most evenings on their patio drinking wine and eating bread, cheese and meats we bought locally.In addition it was the most affordable place we stayed during out 2 weeks in Tuscany. Forget the big cities. Be sure to rent a car and spend a few days in the glorious area!

A very quiet location near a small village, Montecarlo. The room was spacious, beautiful and clean.
We stayed here between 16-20 June and had a great time. They also have an excellent restaurant specialized in traditional tuscan food with a great selection of Italian wines.
The restaurant is separated from the Villa, no noise here!
If you have a car this is a perfect place, Montecarlo is 15 minutes from the Altopascio toll-house of the highway from Florence to Pisa. Montecarlo is 25 km from Lucca 15 km from Montecatini Terme, 65 km from Florence and 47 km from Pisa.
Please keep in mind: they do not serve breakfast.
If you like countryside this is a perfect place!
