A charming guesthouse from which to explore this beautiful town. Brede & Stefano, our hosts, were wonderful; welcoming, informative, & so very helpful. Our front room was beautifully decorated with frescoes & the huge gothic shaped windows opened onto the church opposite - you could almost reach out & touch it. Wish we'd had more time to linger over the...

I feel very fortunate that our group was able to book all four rooms at this charming establishment. We booked two months in advance so we got lucky. Having the place to ourselves, we really felt at home in this 14th-century tower. The owners, Brid and Stefano, have done a lovely job renovating this space into a B&B while still...

Generous and absolutely charming hosts, Brid and Stefano, could not be more helpful and welcoming. Enchanting room with stunning medieval (?) window amongst other period features. Imaginatively and beautifully decorated in a unique and complimentary way with frescoes and some intriguing antiquities. Situated in the heart of town, couldn’t be better placed. Opposite the medieval church, and overlooking the pedestrianised...

Stayed for a couple of days in May 2015 in this atmospheric B & B ensconced in a 14th century tower in the heart of Lucca. This little jewel takes you back in time with its wooden beams, exposed brickwork, high ceilings and ancient artefacts. Managed by an amiable, personable and knowledgeable couple, this place is like Lucca itself -...

When you see photos of a guest house that look great, you always worry that when you get there they won't live up to expectation. However this place, was fantastic.

We had a lovely stay at L'Antica Bifore. The guesthouse has a great location in central Lucca. When we first got into town, we inadvertently drove into the city center (which you're not supposed to do). I met up with our hosts, Stefano and Brid, who helped us out immensely. They are incredibly nice and very welcoming. The rooms are...

We have never stayed anywhere that has this sense of history. Brid and Stephano are a superb couple, arranging transfers,restaurants and tickets to the opera. (Note:- Let them arrange transport, it is a lot cheaper than taxis which run on a meter, and at a pre arranged price.) We will be back again!

“The rooms over the street are loud during certain times of the day, the room over the courtyard would probably be very quiet.”

“At the front you get the views out over the church but it is a main shopping street so there is some noise of people coming and going.”
