Sant'Andrea di Compito, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
"Il Rifugio" is an 18th Century village house recently restored with careful attention to the original details of the building. The ancient chestnut beams and flooring were re-installed, as were the stone interior steps.
The villa takes pride of place in the little village of San Andrea di Compito, just 20 minutes from Lucca.
Every March the village hosts the annual Camillia Festival, with thousands of plants blooming, attracting
visitors from all over the world. There are many outdoor activities to enjoy...including hikes in the Monte Serra Hills.
The B&B consists of 2 bedrooms, each with a full bath...the rate of €185
per night includes both bedrooms, full breakfasts, and afternoon "Happy
hour" with our local cheeses and wines. Each Suite may be rented
separately. Contact the owner for more information.

Myself, my spouse, and two very dear friends rented a car at the airport and took off to find this place. Wow! If you want to experience really living in a small Italian village with all the comforts of home -- this is it, the best of all worlds.

We now have an even larger extended family, and will see...

This beautiful home and it's owner's Bill and John were the pinnacle of delight on our 28 day holiday through 4 countries. We would in a heartbeat stay in their beautiful property and would stay a minimum of a week. Location, gorgeous gardens and Hosts who felt like friends when we left.... we miss it all !!!!

Management response:

Great guests who have become friends and family...they appreciated our suggestions, exploring so many beautiful places plus spending time with us on the patio, enjoying the house wine and cheeses. We're so happy we were the highlight of their voyage....we'll see them back here soon at "Il Rifugio"

They were delightful, entertaining, good company, and excellent hosts. Their antique collection is to die for! We enjoyed our stay enormously and did a lot of...

Management response:

These ladies were an absolute pleasure. Always ready for another adventure, they explored our area, and drove far afield to see the sights many visitors miss...we were very impressed with their great attitude and sense of wonder with Tuscany. We would welcome them back any time.
