Hi Everyone, We hope you are all well and in another week we will be home. We are looking forward to seeing you and sharing our stories with you. We are staying with Craig and Lina in a renovated farmhouse and it is rustic and very nice. We are having fun with Craig and Lina and they are good hosts showing us around the neighbouring towns and areas of interest. Mums getting ...
Into the markets and picked up a rotisseried chicken for dinner........still have to beat the ones we had in Bourg St Maurice.....and those potatoes, my mouth waters just thinking about them.
Into the specialty pasta shop recommended by Enza for pasta and just happened to see his homemade pesto....why not.
The water was hot for the washing up that night. The plumber came.

On the facade of the Duomo is the Pulpit by Donatello and Michelozzo, used for the revealing of the Sacra Cintola (usually every September 8, during the Historic Court).
... host'. Arrived to find with no little dismay, that the apartment block was covered in scaffolding for maintenance to the frontage. Apart from looking ugly, we found that when we got the 3 rd floor apartment, there were scaffolding walkways outside of bedroom and front room windows! We would be able to shake hands with the builders as they went about their work! Roberto didn't seem too concerned by our pointing this out, ...
... to be here. A lot of travellers don't get to see this side of Italy. We headed up to the top of the mountain called la Rocca or the relics to see the view. We went there by mistake when we were trying to find town but boy what a great mistake and a life changing view. We have also been so one with nature up here. An outdoor shower with a view of the mountain, encounters with mountain deer, cats, slugs, snails and mystery bugs, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Boheme Lucca
Enjoyed a very pleasant stay here over the weekend of 18 - 21 March 2005. Ranieri & his staff are extremely courteous & friendly. The accommodation itself is exactly as described on their web site.
La Boheme was the most charming place we stayed on our trip through Tuscany. We were greated with warm smiles and had a fantastic room right about the popular pizzeria below. We stayed two nights and Lucca was by far our favorite town. Definitely rent bikes and ride around the perimeter of the town on the wall, eat at both Leo's and Guido's, climb the stairs of the tower and go out to one of their nightclubs...it's the hopping local scene of Lucca.
The only drawback to La Boheme is trying to get to it via car. Make sure you have them send you a brochure. The B&B is located directly behind the Piazza and very very close to Leo's. And bring ear plugs as well. The joys of old Lucca are the beautiful buildings but remember those buildings have single pane windows.
Lovely little B&B
We stayed only one night in this B&B, but it was clean, pretty, affordable, and pleasant. Bathroom was especially nice - spacious and spotless. The proprietor gave us the best restaurant recommendation of our entire trip - and it was around the corner.
A delightful B&B
We stayed in Lucca for 3 nights in Oct 2004 and loved B&B La Boheme! Ranieri is wonderfully helpful with directions, recommendations, etc. The rooms are lovely, very spacious and quiet. Breakfast was good, fresh fruit a nice addition. We will always stay here when going to Lucca.
One of the nicest B&B's we've seen in Europe. There is no elevator but everything else about the place is terrific. Rooms are beautifully furnished and very romantic; bathrooms are spotless and modern. The breakfast is more than adequate. The location is right in the center of the old walled town and private parking is available a block away for just a few Euros a day. I highly recommend this accomodation. The manager even sends a thank you by e-mail when you leave!
Loved the La Boheme
We had a lovely time at the La Boheme. Ranieri was very helpful with our luggage, and more than happy to meet our every need. The location is great! We would definately stay here if we visit Lucca again.
Good Value and Service
We booked La Boheme on line based on a few reviews only and stayed there Sept '04. It's in a great location, and is very charming. Ranieri, the host, is very helpful. And it was pretty reasonable. The continental breakfast was good - and Ranieri will make a cappucino if you ask. The room was big and the ceiling high.
This place is well above average for the price.
La Boheme has not long been open, and is not listed in British guide books. We stayed there recently on the basis of one glowing report, and were not disappointed.
La Boheme is centrally located in Lucca, very close to the Piazza San Michele. There are five elegant and well furnished bedrooms, all different, and all ensuite, plus an attractive breakfast room. We paid euros 100 a night for the room , and this included breakfast. Signor Ranieri and his mother made us feel very welcome and could not have been more helpful and friendly, We found La Boheme a delightful place to stay and most warmly recommend it.
Very Good B&B
Excellent old town location. Very helpful hosts. Lovely room. Very good breakfast. Without question, a very good place to stay in Lucca.
Elegance and Charm at the Right Price
If you are looking for a reasonably priced treasure, then look no further than the B&B La Bohemein Lucca, Italy. This five-room gem is located just steps away from Piazza San Michele, the heart of this ancient Tuscan town. Each room is utterly unique and sumptuously decorated, with great attention to detail and quality. Our particular room was graced with 15-foot ceilings replete with luxurious damask drapes and an exquisite heavy wood beam ceiling. The breakfast room is beyond charming and straight out of a movie.
However, the best part just might be the proprietors - Rainieri and his mother. I have lived in Italy for almost two years and in that time have travelled extensively, staying in dozens of places up and down the peninsula. However, in all my travels I have never met a more friendly and accomodating pair.I HIGHLY recommend this B&B, and at $100-140/night it is a steal. I can honestly say that this little pearl compares favorably to the Hotel Grand Flora in Rome, and yet costs less than one-fourth the price.
