I do not agree with all the good reviews here, and honestly feel very let down by trip advisor to recommend this place. It's not a charming B&B. The rooms are old and worn. The service is disorganized and unprofessional. The staff although nice, appear confused, hungover, and always on a smoke break. The pictures are staged. Our room was...

Maria and her crew attended us in most friendly manner, making us feel at home. Breakfast is great, the coffee especially. The bed is incredibly comfortable. Spacious bedroom, luxurious bathroom. Only the wifi could be improved as the signal does hardly arrive on the first floor bedroom on the right.

Our stay in beautiful, historic and interesting Lucca was dented by just one thing, our choice of this B&B. I've never felt so let down by reviews on TA, usually we know exactly what to expect. We went for a B&B after a wonderful experience in Bologna in October at Pozzo di Mezzo, such friendliness and luxury. But this one!...

This was a very positive all round experience. We stayed 10 nights in a superior room with balcony. The room and bathroom are very spacious and well appointed, there being a shower cubicle and spa bath. The owner and staff are very welcoming making us feel at home right from the start and going out of their way to help...

Good service, a lovely room, a fabulous breakfast along with good bikes to explore Lucca and surrounding countryside made our 3 day stay here a great success. Safe off road parking and Maria's eye for detail and service were the icing on the cake!

My friend and I spent 16 days traveling in Italy & stayed at 5 B&B's in different cities. Maria's B&B topped our list!! We never expected to find so many personal touches and amenities in one place. I think Maria thought of everything. We were guests for 3 nites. We had a room on the ground floor which we loved....

Perfect room and service with a wonderful attention to detail. If you're visiting Lucca you won't get any better than this 😃. The breakfast spread is very full with lovely fresh fruit and lots of choices of cheese, hot and cold meat eggs etc.
