Location on the hill is absolutely gorgeous and the view from the breakfast patio is stunning. However, the rooms are so dated and the beds are one of the hardest I have ever slept on.

Gorgeous views and the Casas are nestled in well kept vinyards and gardens.

If they would have cared just as much about the gardens and vinyards as they do about the rooms, it would have been fine. However, the rooms seems like they are left to fall apart any day.
- Extremely hard beds. You can feel the springs in the mattress. The frame wasn't even attached to the mattress so it was moving around as you touched it.
- No shower. Just a bath tub with no shower curtains so the entire bathroom gets wet when you take a shower.
- One tiny mirror in the bathroom, and nothing in the common area or bedroom.

The staff and the entire team working there are very nice and helpful. Monica was extremely nice and hospitable and we were grateful for that. A suggestion to the owners would be to renovate not only the rooms but also the reception area as it was not very inviting. It looked like it should have been someones attic. Dark, with stuff everywhere.

Breakfast: not up to par
- Scrambled eggs on order
- Yogurt
- Half slices of white bread
- Good coffee
Don't expect much else.

Our group of 6 all very much enjoyed our week in Casa Maria at Fattoria Mansi Bernardini. We thought the location was stunning in the hills just above Lucca. Marcello, the owner and Monica in reception were always welcoming and helpful. We had a delicious meal prepared by Roseanna. Our outdoor dining area was a place we gathered for many breakfasts as we planned our day ahead and drinks and dinner in the evenings. The most difficult part of the week was the drive out of the property as we were leaving. We had such a good time, we plan on a return visit for a more extended period.

We spent a really good time in Casa Maria this summer. The house is well organized, very well equipped and maintained and the staff super friendly and nice. Could have probably used a small espresso machine in the house given the main restaurant was open only mornings and evenings. Gardens really beautiful and the pools really delighted the kids. The only thing that upset us upon departure was the owner s charging us for 4 coffees/day at the price of a breakfast (12eur) which really did not do justice to this great location.

My wife and I were part of a group of 8 on a Gardens of Tuscany tour and stayed here for 3 nights. The villa sits high on hill with panoramic views of the valley. Our room was not the most sumptuous in the villa but we actually were able to spread across two rooms which made it very spacious and comfortable. Afternoon drinks on the terrace with the view in front of us was delightful. We also had dinner in the opulent dining room on one evening which was excellent. It was a good base for exploring the attractions of the local area.
