What a Discovery … Calamidora Hotel!
We stayed five nights as part of celebrating 30 years of marriage. It was my first time to Italy. The hotel is attractive and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, polite and went the extra mile. Our room was lovely with plenty of space and cleaned daily. The breakfast was excellent just what we needed to start the day! We were staying on B&B basis.
The hotel itself is just off of a main road but once through the gates you can't hear local traffic. The hotel is on a large site and you enter through a large car park. The local Lidl supermarket is only 5 minutes away, if you need anything. This lovely hotel was a great location to discover part of Tuscany. During our short stay we visited Lucca, (5 star), Pisa and Florence (4 star). All these places are breath-taking and need further visits. The hotel is in a strategic location and perfect to explore the area by car.
The first night we ate at the local pizza restaurant, simple and filling. However, let me mention two others that stand out. The first was the Ristorante Calandrino. It was superb! The service excellent and the food brilliant. Don’t let the outside put you off! This is a restaurant not to miss if you are in the area. The food is very special, the atmosphere good, and the service is first class! Coming to Tuscany? It will be worth the journey and such a great experience! The second is ‘the Ristorante I Maggi’ in Buti, just a few miles from the hotel! We had a beautiful dinner here with 4 courses. It is tricky to find, but worth the excursion. I was delighted with my meal. The first course was simple but creative for an authentic taste of Italy! Next, a lovely selection of cold meats. The main course was a delicious piece of tuna steak! Finally, a wonderful desert to send me back to hotel happy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The ambience was special being both old and new together. What a great evening to round off our holiday. We were looking for Italian food so wouldn’t recommend the American Diner near the Hotel. Great Hotel and a great area!

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on the first floor in any of the Italian style blocks.

Good hotel in the Lucca and Pisa region. The hotel is good. Clean rooms and good breakfast.
Location is average along a road. The village Calcinaia is not interesting, hardly restaurants.
There is a small swimming pool at the hotel that's busy. The large swimming pool at the property is open for all and on season overloaded.
The property and gardens are very well maintained

The Calamidoro Hotel is situated in several buildings in an Italian style, it looks a bit like a castle and houses. Staff is extremely nice and welcoming. Our room was spotless clean, and the swimming pool was a plus. For the price, they could have offered a free towel service, but... Breakfast was nice, and there is a small bar were you can get a drink in the evening.

What a great find. Family of 4 (kids 12 & 14) and looking for a family holiday with a location between Pisa and Florence
. Location is 20 mins from Pisa airport and don't be scared of the location when you drive in. Keep left and pass the American dinner (which is good by the way for kids).
Drive across the massive car park and buzz the intercom at he massive gates. Drive down the country manor style drive way to the hotel.
We got two adjoining rooms which then gave us two living rooms, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Very secure and even had two safes and four TV's. They were adjoined with a simple door so gave it a large house feel.
Staff are friendly and very attentive and there seems to be an arm of cleaning and gardening staff keeping the hotel and grounds looking tip top.
WIFI is excellent (for the kids to keep entertained) along with the pool and breakfast.

When you first drive in you would have passed the American Dinner along with the petrol station, chemist , few other bars and the entrance to the other pools and main restaurant.
You have breakfast in the hotel where you are staying and you can have dinner in this external restaurants this is fantastic place to eat. But not every night as the food is at a very high standard and rich (risk of gout :) ).
We found that there is a great Pizza place a few mins walk away.there is a back path from the property and head towards the new Lidl supermarket. It is right beside the Chinese supermarket (which is great for pool toys and other crap you forgot to bring with you).
Pisa is a 20 min drive away and Florence 40. There is a train station with parking on the way to Florence which we used and was perfect.
Surrounding are is fine with a few GEMS!
-Small lake with beach and a great cafe.
-Piagio Vespa museum.
-another 50's style dinner with the girls are on roller skates.
-massive shopping area with a Mall and Decathlon etc.
- theme park with roller coasters which is in a forest and undercover and cool.

The hotel has a driving range, archery target to kill an hour or two when the family are have a siesta.

One thing though, take the plug in mosquito killing type things for the rooms.
The whole of Tuscany is irrigated to water the land and there is no escaping it unless you are prepared. Mozzies are water born.

I easily recommend the hotel and area. If you are willing to drive and explore; this place is for you. If you want to switch off and have a prosseco by the pool yes this place is for you also.

The hotel is well set back from the road and its amazing. The buildings look old and stately but are from old, they are very well appointed. You arrive at the residence through a gated entrance. The rooms are big and airy with plenty of space. There is a very secluded swimming pool which is lovely for a dip or small swim. If you want to be an olympian there is a full size olympic pool two minute walk away. The grounds are very well kept, which include a golf driving range and large pond. The food is brilliant, breakfast is a buffet with just about everything you could imagine, your spoilt for choice and will probably end up eating far to much. The dinner is very traditional and exceptional, the dinner restaurant is a two minute walk next to the olympic pool. The staff are friendly, attentive and extremely hospitaly in all parts of the complex. This is much nearer to a five star hotel than the four it has.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be located well and would all be to the very high standards that are set
