My husband and I went occasionally to visit the area around Lucca on a tour of Tuscany and Liguria. We visited many great places and this part of the world is definitely highly recommendable, but when we arrived in the Eremo del Gusto we thought we had reached the apex of our holiday! Indeed, this small hilly resort is located on the peak of a set of hills overlooking the plains of Lucca and beyond, for a view of half of Tuscany literally. Both in daytime and night the view is outstanding!!! The rooms are finely decorated with modern facilities (AC, very comfortable beds) and a delicacy of taste that make you feel softly loved by the gentle owners who seem to care only for their guests' pleasure. As if this wasn't enough, the locanda is also an amazing restaurant where to taste typical Lucchese meals, cooked with 100% local products, with plenty of choices for vegetarian people as well. We can say that we had the best meals in the area, especially comparing to Lucca where restaurants are highly touristic. This is really a place not to miss, and we would recommend it as a key location where to sleep and enjoy a relaxing holiday, apt for short daily trips around - don't miss the villas and the route of the oil and wine!!! - in one of the best spots of the entire world. Thanks once again for everything!
