We had an excellent two night stay at San Gennaro Castello. Dario and Marie are wonderful people and great hosts. Dario went well out of his way to help us have a memorable visit, even finding an apartment for us when we decided to stay longer and he had no rooms left in his own building. He loaned us his...

We first booked the B&B and noticed it was quite the way up in the hills from Lucca Italy. The drive up the hill was beautiful! Once reached the B&B, the view was one of the best views we've seen! The owner and his family were VERY nice! His wife cooked us amazing home cooked food and couldn't be happier!...

This place is located in an old Italian village. It is out of the way on the top of the mountain. If you are with small kids this is a good place for you as it is near the Pinocchio park. As this is an old village, you cannot part the care near the hotel (but also not far) and...

Dario C, Proprietario at San Gennaro Castello B&B, responded to this review

Hello we have installed mosquito nets in ALL windows since few weeks. We do speak 4 languages (Italian, English, Spanish and French). Parking is only 15 meters from our entrance since we are in a pedestrian area in the hearth of a medieval village so it is impossible to park in front of the B&B. We don't have air condition...

From the moment of email for booking information to the morning of our departure from San Gennaro Castello everything was wonderful! Dario and Marie are the perfect hosts in a beautiful location.

All I can say is WOW! Dario and Marie are the consummate hosts who made us feel at home from the minute our family of five arrived. The ambiance of the four hundred year old inn, the incredible views overlooking the valley below, the long drawn out dinners in the evening, the wonderful conversation with our hosts and other travelers.......all...

We stayed for 3 nights as an escape from the city. We were hoping for a taste of Tuscany and that is exactly what we received from our stay. Our hosts were wonderful and went out of their way to accomodate us. We did not have a car so they drove us to and from the station for cheaper than...

We have stayed at San Gennaro Castello B&B for a couple of days during easter time and it has been much more than we expected.

What makes the San Gennaro Castello B&B special? Absolutely EVERYTHING! The location is ideal. Florence, Pisa, the Chianti region, and the hidden gem of Lucca are all just minutes away, if you're in the mood for adventure. Or, walk the beautiful streets of this hillside village, relax, and lose yourself in the magnificent vistas. A fun surprise for our children...
