After travelling Italy for a few weeks, we came to Principe Calef. The best stay we had in Italy. The host Maria is extremely sweet and helpful for anything you need. Breakfast is so filling we never had a chance to eat lunch out. Rooms are very large with lots of old world character. Located just outside the city walls,...

Maria and Sam were the best hosts we had in Italy. They arranged for a cab to collect me from train station, and the exemplary service continued from there. The rooms were very comfortable, and breakfast was great. One morning on her way to work Sam went out of her way to get a local pastry for me to sample....

A perfect place to make your home in Lucca. Maria and her staff made our stay very pleasant, providing clean, comfortable accommodations in a lovely villa. With Maria's recommendations, we were able to take advantage of out of the way places which made our trip to this interesting city that much more enjoyable. Maria went that extra mile in taking...

Our experinece with Maria and her staff was excellent! They were very helpful throughout our stay and all the contacts we had before our stay. They even arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport at a reasonable price. The breakfast was decent and sleep quality good. However, we did not stay at Principe Calaf itself (don't know...

Ok, good location just outside city walls and easy to find. Maria and staff very friendly to us on arrival and hurriedly finished cleaning our room so we could move in. We were on the third floor and as there is no lift the staff whisked our suitcases away and took them to our room. Room was a reasonable size...

We stayed at Principe Calaf in September and found it lived up to previous reviews. Maria & Samantha were extremely helpful in every way. The breakfast was of a high quality and plentiful, the bedroom very clean & comfortable. Having car parking was a big plus as was the free use of bicycles to explore Lucca. I would recommend this...

Went to Lucca as a last minute trip away and was really pleasantly surprised by this little B&B and the city of Lucca. The B&B was only a short walk from the city walks and was clean and tidy. Maria and her team were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The old city was great...

This B'nB just outside the city walls of Lucca is clean, fairly priced and has friendly staff who gives a very good explanation about the things there are too see. There are free bikes at your disposal, do use them!! Eat in Antica locando di seti (real stuff, not tourist trap) about 8 miles away.
