We nearly had the estate to ourselves with our group of 12 women, and we very much enjoyed the personal attention and care from Elisa and Alessandro (and their kids and parents). They were all delightful and made the stay to so charming and comfortable. The renovation of the once-crumbling building is unbelievable, and although it's been completely restored and updated, it still maintains its old-world charm. It's a bit secluded but parking is ample if you have a car. There are 3-4 dining options nearby if you're on foot. A cab into Lucca is Euros 30+. The adjacent restaurant is higher-end Japanese fusion - beautiful AND tasty. The trattoria up the road is a wonderful family-run place with excellent local cuisine. We were there in late Feb., so didn't try the pool. But the grounds were beautiful and there were many places to walk and explore. I'd love to come back in the summer months. And I would definitely stay here again.…
Stayed here for a few days and I’ve got to say it’s one of the best places we’ve stayed (we are quite well travelled). Wonderful hospitality, beautiful surroundings, excellent location and the most gorgeous property. I had high expectations of Tuscany and I wasn’t disappointed, to stay in such a fantastic accommodation (with pool!) was perfect. I highly recommend this place and hope to return in the future.
We stayed 4 nights as part of a Watercolour-painting course, this is a peaceful hotel in the countryside, convenient location for visiting Florence, Lucca, etc.. It's run by a 3-generation family, friendly welcome and warm hospitality. Terrasse with lovely view and large ground with swimming-pool. Our room was on the 2nd floor, large, clean, nice and comfortable, space for clothes, safebox, small fridge. Large and clean bathroom. WIFI worked perfectly. Good parking places. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choices, to be enjoyed inside or on the terrace. Excellent restaurant 'Serendipico' next door. We would love to return.
Relais del Lago is set in wonderful countryside not far from Lucca and convenient for Pisa and Florence. We've just returned and can't praise the hospitality of the family highly enough. We found the comfort and relaxed atmosphere of the place an ideal base for exploring the Tuscan countryside and there are plenty of good restaurants in the area. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the terrace with lovely views and the foods to choose from are fresh and plentiful.
What a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil place to stay. This small hotel us run by a very friendly and helpful three generations of one family. It has all the necessary facilities that are required with a very nice pool area, extensive grounds, plenty of parking space and a wonderful breakfast spread each morning. Drinks via an honesty bar are available throughout the day. Rooms are well kept with a nice little fridge in the corner. Location is good for many places either by road or via train if you drive to the station, we used Lucca. All in all a very enjoyable stay and would certainly return if ever coming back to Tuscany again.
