Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Romantica Lucca
Best value for money..
Of all the places we stayed during our Tuscan holiday, Villa Romantica was definitely the best value for money. Although Lucca itself did not match up to some of the other wonderful towns we had visited, the accommodation and facilites at Villa Romantica were first class. Our room was gorgeous: beautifully decorated and spotless and it actually consisted of a bedroom (with TV) and a separate lounge (with TV) as well as a little balcony and a very clean and practical bathroom. We also made use of the lovely pool and perfectly manicured garden. The host family was very helpful and the breakfast was delicious. 10 out of 10!
Beautiful, well run hotel; excellent value. Location is rather busy in terms of traffic noise and far from bucolic, but very convenient to the historic core of Lucca. Hosts are extremely helpful.
This is a very well run hotel. We stayed in the junior suite and it was beautiful. The air conditioning worked very well, it was quiet and the bathroom very modern.
The hotel has a pool and bikes for use. We used the bikes to ride around Lucca and really enjoyed ourselves.
The breakfast was extra and a little pricey but very good. I would suggest this hotel to my friends if they were ever going to Lucca.
Villa Romantica is a superb hotel with such a real home comfort and charming staff. Our room was perfect and breakfast delicious. We will recommend it to all our friends and hope to return soon!
A beautifully kept hotel - excellent position for anyone wanting to explore the walled city of Lucca. Our host was a charming knowledgable Italian gentleman and his wife. We shall return. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and very clean.
Stayed here at the end of September. We booked the junior suite which was beautiful. The decor and the cleanliness of the room was first class.
We would definately book again should we return to Lucca
Wonderful place to stay!
Our stay at Villa Romantica was just wonderful! We thought the property was absolutely beautiful, the hosts friendly and professional and we have already recommended Villa Romantica to friends and colleagues. We intend to make an annual visit.
Villa Romantica is Just That
We booked this wonderful place based on their web page. The web page does not do it justice. The villa is enclosed in a residential section just outside the walls of the town. We followed the locals to find the shortest route through the walls to medievel Lucca. The town is very compact and walkable and not overrun by tourists. We spent five days here using it as a base to explore Tuscany. Villa Romantica is wonderfully landscaped, with a small pool tucked away in a corner. the accommodations were very good, well appointed, with a Tuscan flare. There were large shuttered windows, beautiful furnishings, a canopied bed and a modern bathroom in the very reasonably priced suite that we had. The Favilla family was very accomodating and helpful. They are attentive to every detail. It was like staying with relatives. Adolfo made the best coffee we've ever had. They gave us each a parting gift. Driving within the walled city is very difficult if not impossible even to get to the hotels. Villa Romantica has its own parking. Don't miss it.

... the more it seemed a maze - twisting this way and that. You wouldn't want to get lost down here! Then, down in the dark and the cold, amonst all these tombs, the sound of the religious brothers singing (it sounded like Gregorian chants) could be heard. There was no way of knowing where the singing was coming from and the whole atmosphere was very eerie and a little spine tingling. I used to think persecuted Christians used to live in the catacombs - but apparently not - too ...

This first storm was soon over and things dried up but when the next storm came it went on for hours.
Anyway, we made it to Lucca and as I sit here now in the early evening the sun has just come out.

We walked for 2 hours from the 1st to the 2nd village. At the 2nd village we climbed a tower, you could so for miles ...

For those who don't know, Sigur Rós are an Icelandic post-rock band from Reykjavík, who have been active since 1994. Known for their ethereal sound, frontman Jónsi Birgisson's falsetto vocals, and the use of bowed guitar, the band's music is also noticeable for its incorporation of classical and minimalist aesthetic elements.
Ah, the beauty of copy/paste!
They sing mostly in either Icelandic, or their own made ...
... and if it wasn't for his music Puccini would have been well and truly ostracised by the local Luccans! Wow, someone should write an opera about all this! Anyhow inspired by this I popped in to the nightly Puccini concert held in the Church that his family had been pillars of...until Giacomo came along by the sounds of it! Quite a nice concert...the soprano had terrific volume, and when she launched into the high notes I thought she might swallow us all! The rest ...
