“Tuscany Charm”
Reviewed 2 February 2007

If you wish to stay in the Lucca area, this is an ideal place. Easy travelling by car to Lucca and exploring Northern Tuscany, Barga and others. The accomodation is very good, we stayed in La Stalla, it was really beautiful, so quiet. If two of you want to be alone this is the one, a good rest. The recommended local restaurants are excellent value with beatifully prepared local dishes.

Stayed August 2006

Borgo della Madonina is an old olive farm set in a glorious valley about 30minutes drive north of Lucca. It has three houses to let - I took the one whichis for two, the others are larger, and they are beautifully equipped, and have terraces from which one can enjoy the sxcener and sunbathe. There is a small swimming pool, and the owners, who live in the fourth house, are present, but not so that you would notice them. The valley has several good restaurants, and as well as Lucca , famous for its walls and its churches, one can visit the most Scottish town in Italy - Barga, although beware the parking restrictions.

Borgo Della Madonnina is less of a hotel, more a collection of cottages that you can rent, about 20 mins from Lucca. The two guys who run it, Adrian and Chris, are from the UK and have renovated the place to a very high standard - Italian hotels can be a touch ropey (for our stay in Tuscany we also stayed at Villa Volpi, just down the road where we had a totally different experience - see other comments on tripadvisor!) but they have put great thought into making it acceptable to Brits. We found their reception very warm and welcoming and when we arrived there was a welcome pack of food and stuff for our first night (it's self-catering) Otherwise, they leave you alone to get on with having a relaxing time. There are some good local places to eat and Lucca is close for shopping etc. - they will give you some excellent recommendations. Really nice place run by people who know how to make a stay relaxing.
