Stunning old building with so much history. Great decor in the bedrooms and classic antiques on the ground floors. Lovely evening meal and good breakfast. Perfect spot surrounded by ancient trees and glorious Tuscan countryside. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good place to stay for visiting Lucca and other little towns around this area.

This is a beautiful hotel. Our room was extremely comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was rather ordinary, but the chocolate eggs on our plates Easter morning was a nice touch. Lovely grounds- tall trees, lots of shade, pretty pool.Good location- only a short drive into Lucca (but tricky getting back to the hotel from town).

Beautiful heritage building near Lucca and close to Pisa. Breakfast in the morning is varied and of very good quality. Nicely decorated rooms. The grounds seemed stunning but the temperature didn't allow us to visit them unfortunately. Professional service

La Principessa was the home of Napoleon Bonaparte's sister and is beautifully appointed as a hotel. Set in magnificent grounds, it is a hotel of old world charm and elegance. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and magnificently decorated. The only negative was a very small lift to the upper floors, although one can always use the stairs to walk...

The setting is lovely. The house and garden a perfect back drop to a night in a traditional Italian country home. Large rooms, high ceiling. Breakfast in the garden was delightful. Staff were very helpful. Pretty much matched expectations

Excellent place to stay - steeped in Italian history - lovely hotel in beautiful grounds - although the hotel was almost full it was so quiet and relaxing. Places to relax by the pool, around the hotel and in the exquisite gardens. Staff on hand but not obtrusive in any way, recommending places to visit and where to eat in...

Beautiful villa, which provides all the facilities of a hotel, located in beautiful surroundings on the outskirts of Lucca and on the road and very close to Piza. It is like staying in the country in a Duke's mansion with all the modern facilities, but then only several minutes drive from Lucca's historical center and 20 minutes from Piza. We...

My wife and I decided to visit Lucca on a 3 day 'City Break' and decided to stay a little way out of the city which I think was the right thing to do as this hotel, obviously once a sumptuous private house, fitted the bill exactly. The Rooms were an ideal size and the bed was very comfortable. Air...

This ancient building would have so much potential, the mansion is very beautiful, the service people also try their best. But everything is run down, rotten and not kept with love. What a pity! Not worth its money. Breakfast is not even worth of going into detail.
