The location, rooms and facilities are just perfect as is the breakfast but a few small improvements in service would perfect everything.
A. The adress in booking.com is incorrect and we only found the place after help from friendly local people.
B. Please let people know in advance that there is no evening meal available on weekends, otherwise advertise as B&B only. This was disappointing after reading all great reviews of the cooking skills of the owner.
C. For example have some cheese and sausage available as afternoon snack when people come in hungry from a day on the road.

A gorgeous old house on the top of a hill, looking over the valleys and hills surrounding Lucca, and is owned and run by someone who cares about the place, and wants you to have a nice time (Emiliano). The rooms are great, but are surpassed by the view - make sure you get a room with a view of the valley!!! Best thing even to look at while you shower, or also from the side of the pool which is kept nice and clean.

The breakfast is great - fresh coffee, bread, italian cheeses, tomatoes etc, as well as the standard cereals, and eggs etc if you want them. There are lots of common areas as well to sit, and enjoy and glass of wine (BYO wine, Emiliano provides the glasses). Dinner is sometimes available, check when you arrive.

To stay there you obviously need to have a car, and the road to drive up there is a bit narrow, but easily manageable. The only other thing I would suggest (if you book with Booking.com) is just to check the address - the one Booking.com says is different to what the hotel says (although you end up in the right place eventually, it is a bit confusing)

Would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone who wants the best view in Tuscany :-)

Room tip: Make sure you get the room with the view!!! No point staying here otherwise I dont think!

We stayed one night, we had a great reception from the owner himself, Emiliano.
The hotel (could easily be called gourmet boutique hotel) is very well located, with a beautiful view of Tuscany.
In addition to a wonderful room, very comfortable, large and with great views, the kitchen and the restaurant of the hotel are the highlights of the place, both are in the same open space, Emiliano prepares and serves great breakfast and dinner, well served and delicious, with a modern cuisine and typical of Tuscany and Italy.

Room tip: All rooms have great views! The rooms are comfortable and welcoming. There are apartments with two suites, living room, full kitchen and laundry facilities. Todos os quartos têm ótima vista! Os quartos são confortáveis e aconchegantes. Existem apartamentos com duas suites, sala, cozinha completa e lavanderia.

My wife and I had a fantastic experience at this hotel. The view is amazing and the service is top notch. The treat is Emiliano, who treats you with hospitality and kindness from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. The treat is the food, a once in a lifetime experience, having Emiliano cook you a dinner with locally sourced ingredients cooked in a Tuscan style.

You absolutely must stay in this hotel on your trip to Tuscany.
