La Principessa was the home of Napoleon Bonaparte's sister and is beautifully appointed as a hotel. Set in magnificent grounds, it is a hotel of old world charm and elegance. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and magnificently decorated. The only negative was a very small lift to the upper floors, although one can always use the stairs to walk...

The setting is lovely. The house and garden a perfect back drop to a night in a traditional Italian country home. Large rooms, high ceiling. Breakfast in the garden was delightful. Staff were very helpful. Pretty much matched expectations

Excellent place to stay - steeped in Italian history - lovely hotel in beautiful grounds - although the hotel was almost full it was so quiet and relaxing. Places to relax by the pool, around the hotel and in the exquisite gardens. Staff on hand but not obtrusive in any way, recommending places to visit and where to eat in...

Beautiful villa, which provides all the facilities of a hotel, located in beautiful surroundings on the outskirts of Lucca and on the road and very close to Piza. It is like staying in the country in a Duke's mansion with all the modern facilities, but then only several minutes drive from Lucca's historical center and 20 minutes from Piza. We...

My wife and I decided to visit Lucca on a 3 day 'City Break' and decided to stay a little way out of the city which I think was the right thing to do as this hotel, obviously once a sumptuous private house, fitted the bill exactly. The Rooms were an ideal size and the bed was very comfortable. Air...

This ancient building would have so much potential, the mansion is very beautiful, the service people also try their best. But everything is run down, rotten and not kept with love. What a pity! Not worth its money. Breakfast is not even worth of going into detail.

Beautiful hotel/villa with a nice garden and a pool. We were a group of 4 couples who stayed for 3 nights. Breakfast buffet was excellent, the rooms were large and comfortable, Dinner at the restaurant was good and the reception staff was very accommodating.

Amazing villa in great location for visiting this part of Tuscany. Peaceful surroundings. Great customer service especially at the reception! The rooms could be a bit updated but on the other hand it goes with the charm of this property. Dog friendly which is a rare find. Dinner at the hotel restaurant good but 2.5km away a much better restaurant...

Spent three nights in the villa and we loved it! The staff is nice and helpful, the villa itself is amazing and the pool is clean! Though you need a car to get around, but therefore you get silence, free parking, good breakfast - we will come back! Grazie mille for the nice upgrade! ;)

Poor value for money. Not really convenient to Lucca as enormous road junctions and they are really difficult to navigate. Restaurant overpriced for fairly standard fare. Rooms can be noisy. Service so so.
