“Better suited to a longer stay?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Located splendidly between San Giuliano terme, which has nothing much to offer (as it is a very small village), and Pisa, easily reached by car. The hotel itself looks nice, has a nice garden, though it is farmland, thus flat and shade is provided by umbrellas, not trees. We had a decent sized room, clean and well equiped. We had to leave early, so were assured breakfast would be in a little bag for us. Alas it was forgotten. Apparently there was a little do going on, a festivity, which probably kept staff busy as it was.

Stayed for one night for same reason as we stayed two years ago - it is an excellent location to visit Lucca , which is one of our top favourite Tuscan cities - and then very good for access to Pisa airport for early morning flight. Problem this time was that although we were told breakfast was available at 7.30 am, at that hour nobody was about, when a staff member did arrive she asked if we could give her ten minutes which meant we got a very rushed breakfast at 8.05 am. May not seem much but when you have a flight to catch you don't want to lose 35 minutes just twiddling your thumbs. This time we stayed in one of the rooms inside the main building which was smaller than the one previously stayed in in the converted barn but fine for a one night stay, well decorated, nice bathroom - although impossible to work out how to get the plug in the basin plug-hole. A few maintenance issues since our last visit - dead plants and rusty planters on the terrace - however, all these gripes are forgiven because of the quality of the meal in the restaurant. This was perfectly cooked and presented local specialities - very well explained by the waitress (the menu is only in Italian) the antipasti was excellent and both the rabbit and pork dishes were really tasty with well matched contorni of spinach and roast potatatoes. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. In fact for a one night stay, dinner for two with wine, the total price of about £150 was very good.Shame about breakfast.

We stayed 1 night in one of the 2 (larger) rooms in the annex building. The room was very comfortable, all amenities present and excellent beds.
Location is in rural area close to Pisa, ideal to visit the city.
Another reason to visit the Locanda is to have dinner in the family-run restaurant. Superb local food and lots of wines to choose from.

As a general rule, we always stay at 5 star or 4+ star hotels.

This was a total stab in the dark based upon reading trip advisor and we were not disappointed.

Firstly you have to realise that this is a restaurant with rooms. The rooms are very pleasant and the beds are extremely comfortable.

We stayed in the green room and the bathroom probably could have been a bit better, but for a 3 night stay it was more than adequate.

The restaurant is simply superb in terms both of the food offered and the standards of service, worthy of any 5 star establishment.

Luca, Nicola and the rest of the team work very hard to give you a great dining experience.

If you visit in the summer, there is plenty of outdoor seating - however there is no bar or lounge area to use if it’s raining (and the Prosecco in the mini bar sadly is sweet Asti !!)

So would I recommend this place? – well if a comfortable bed to sleep in and a great place to eat are top of your list then yes – if you want somewhere with a bar and a lounge then no.

PS – it is less than 10 minutes to get into Pisa from this location (and only 15 kms or so to Lucca) – if I was looking for an ideal base for two or three days in the area, and was also looking for great value for money, then Locanda Sant’Agata ticked all the boxes.

If I compare this to other recent stays in Italy, then just on a simple cost basis, I spent the same on dinner, bed and breakfast here as I spent on just bed and breakfast elsewhere (so you could say that we effectively consumed fine food for free).

Locanda sant'Agata offers good value for money: a comfortable room with nice amenities near Pisa and very convenient as it is right on the road that leads to Lucca and the autostrada. They also have a dining room that offers a full breakfast that is included in the price of the room. Well worth the price. It is not a luxurious accommodation but at these affordable prices that is not expected.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the larger rooms,as the regular double is quite small.

My wife stayed here for two nights during a 'road trip' of Italy and France in August 13. The setting is stunning, rural views of the mountains, but close enough to Pisa and Luca. When we arrived the welcome was warm and our cases were taken to our room on the first floor. The room was well equipped and and the bed comfortable. Breakfast is excellent with a large array of cold and hot food options The very best part of our stay was dining. The food a superb, may be a little expensive, but you pay for quality. The owners son was very attentive and enjoyed explaining the wine options and provided a wide range of choice. Overall a very relaxing stay. Can't wait to go back again

I booked here only because of the excellent ratings, for which few places get. I was not disappointed , the staff are all family and treat you as a visitor to their home. Rooms were clean and functional, and nothing is dated or old. The food in the restaurant was superb, and we eat there every night. The service overall was A plus.

Everything was excellent.
