This is our third visit to Italy and our second to Case La Pace. This time we took some friends with us to experience this wonderful B & B. This time we spent 12 days at Casa La Pace. It is hard to put into words the type of vacation we had. Rusty and Pepper are the best hosts you can ask for. They make you feel at home. The B & B is in a beautiful village. The hospitality shown by Rusty and Pepper is indescribable. The views from the room and the breakfast in the mornings were the best. We went on day trips to Florence and Lucca, but looked forward to returning to Casa La Pace to relax and take in the scenery. The train station is about a 10 minute walk from the B & B. While walking to and from the train and our walk into town to get our nightly gelatos, you experienced the real Italy. Our tours with Rusty through Lucca and Florence were unforgettable. Before we left the B & B, we made reservations to return in a couple of months. We are couning the months, days and minutes until we return. Thank you Rusty and Pepper for this wonderful vacation.
