Each is different in its architectural shape and form, with beautiful frescoes and unique pieces of period furniture. We can organise wine tasting, cookery classes and more.

The L'Antica Bifore was the perfect stay in Lucca. One feels as though they live in Lucca, as the guest house is in the heart of town near everything, through an old door that leads upstairs to the residence. The interior is absolutely beautiful, maintained in a period style with furniture, murals, artwork and every element consistent with an elegant historic residence from the 1200s. The room was comfortable, with stained glass windows, heating and air conditioning, and every detail thought through. Alice and Allessandro are the owners and hosts, and they pay attention to every detail and are attentive to every need. There are so many thoughtful touches and everything is clean and well maintained. I recommend getting the breakfast, as Alice puts together a beautiful box of pastries, juices, fruits and coffee. She also made suggestions for sightseeing, dining, apertivo, and wine tasting, and diligently helped us with reservations. Allessandro manages one of the top restaurants in town and he reserved a table on the piazza one cool night with blankets and overhead heaters making for a comfortable night out. The guest house is in the middle of everything with plenty of shopping and restaurants and food vendors all around. There is free parking outside town, or one can pay for parking inside and walk to the guest house. If driving, I recommend paying to park to unload/load bags nearer to the guest house, and then parking in the free parking outside the city walls.

Alice and Alessandro could not have made our stay in Lucca any better! Every detail is thoughtfully considered, the rooms and common area are beautiful and they do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. L’Antica Bifore is located in a beautiful medieval and historic building and yet has all the modern amenities. Most importantly, the hosts are so very welcoming and accommodating.

Alessandro and Alice give us a very good welcome. We were in the middle of the centre and close to all the things we wanted to see. We park the car outside the center on a free parking and was a short walk . The breakfast was very good.

If we can express in one word our experience at the Antica Bifore it would be WONDERFUL. Historical and well cared rooms, sweet amenities provided and welcoming hosts make the place just PERFECT ! We have not been once but several time with our parents, so 2 generations have experienced the same feelings : great guesthouse at first and then, by coming over and over, the privilege to have discovered such an historical and precious place to stay in. The expectation is still the same every time, just knowing in advance it's going to be great .... AGAIN. Not to mention the couple Stefano and Brid who are just magnificent in the way they welcome you and make your stay so comfy. The best secret in town ? .... Probably. The best place to stay in Lucca ? ... Definately. THANK YOU and see you again. For sure. Henri, Roumiama, Stefano & Aline Thankful and always happy to see you.

The most beautiful guesthouse in the most sought-after location – I cannot fault this place! Stefano was a wonderful host who welcomed us at check-in and talked to us about the best things to see in Lucca. The bedrooms, like the entrance/dining room, were out of this world! It was truly an immersive and wonderful experience in a beautiful city with lots to offer.

Shame on me for not doing so. IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL FOR ANY REASON YOU OWE THE FULL AMOINT FOR YOUR STAY, 100 PERCENT NO MATTER THE REASON. Even in off season. Just be sure you want to commit to zero cancellation, no matter if you have an emergency, cancelled flight, etc. I just paid fully fir a stay I can’t use even though I tried to cancel almost a week out. Again, shame on me for not being more diligent in my booking.

Response from Stefano Pilloni, Owner at L'Antica Bifore
Responded 24 Feb 2020
Hi Cindy, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit this review. You booked directly with us. Before finalising the booking you need to accept our terms and condition which you did. Sorry no fine or small print involved. The same cancellation policy is clearly included in your booking confirmation details sent to you by our system at the time of booking. This includes our 21 day cancellation policy. You contacted us on the 19th of February to cancel which was four days before you were due to check-in. While you might think we are in the off season we were fully booked and because of your reservation we had to turn down other requests. All the best, Stefano L'Antica Bifore Guesthouse

Beautifully appointed historical rooms - warm, homely, bright and right in the centre of the old town. Brid & Stefano were very accommodating, even at 1am when we were arriving slightly bamboozled by the maze of medieval streets. Would definitely recommend!
