“A Five Star Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

This is our second visit to Casa La Pace and this time my father joined us. It was his first trip to Italy since his time in the Air Force in WWII and we could not have been in a better place. Rusty and Pepper customized a variety of trips and tours that Dad, who is a spry 92, and the rest of us could all enjoy. From Frienze to a drive across the Apuan Alps to view the quarries of world famous Carrara marble to Massa 's dramatic coast and to Lucca and so much more. Their knowledge of the Garfagnana region and the Serchio Valley is great and make exploring this area of Tuscany a wonderful and exciting experience. The town of Ghivizzano is charming the people who live and work there warm and welcoming. We are planning our return to Casa La Pace as soon as our schedule will let us. A five star experience in all aspects, hospitality, rooms (ours looked out to the castle) breakfast and the most gracious hosts. Would recommend to anyone wanting a true Italian adventure.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the house

Dear flymomMa, Casa La Pace Bed and Breakfast would like to thank you for your kind review.

We were happy to welcome you back to Ghivizzano and delighted that your father came with you. For the people of the Serchio Valley, World War II is still a part of their lives. Many of the older inhabitants experienced the hardships of occupation and pass along stories of those years to their children and grandchildren. The arrival of the Americans was a momentous event; the Allied troops arrived with food and clothing, in addition to freedom. It was an moving experience to walk with your father through the piazza and tell the locals that he had been in Italy during the war. It triggered new stories and new expressions of gratitude. We are proud to be Americans and your father's visit deepened our love for both the U.S. and Italy.

We are glad that you appreciated the day trips, as well. Especially with older travelers, walking tours are not always the best option.. The Apuan Alps and Appenines are spectacular and the twisting mountain roads offer breathtaking views from the comfort of a car seat.

We had a great time with your family. We can't wait for your third and subsequent visits to the Serchio Valley and Casa La Pace.

Your hosts – Rusty and Pepper

My mother and I loved our time with Rusty and Pepper at their beautiful and welcoming B&B! Visiting Casa La Pace in Ghivizzano was the highlight of our stay in Italy!! Rusty and Pepper are truly the ultimate hosts! The rooms were comfortable and spotless! The breakfast was fresh and delicious and a perfect start to every day! We spent 5 nights/6 days and the time flew by too fast! I loved the tours and appreciated learning about the history of the places we visited! Thank you both for the sweet hospitality!

Dear cehenry, Casa La Pace Bed and Breakfast would like to thank you for your kind review. We recognize that we are away from the main tourist destinations. So we try a little harder to welcome our guests and make you feel at home.. We know we've done a good job when our guests are sorry to say 'goodbye'.

We really enjoyed the time you and your mother spent with us. There is never enough time to show you all that Ghivizzano and the Serchio Valley has available. With us, too, the days flew by. We expect to seeing you two again in the near future. Your hosts – Rusty and Pepper

This is our third visit to Italy and our second to Case La Pace. This time we took some friends with us to experience this wonderful B & B. This time we spent 12 days at Casa La Pace. It is hard to put into words the type of vacation we had. Rusty and Pepper are the best hosts you can ask for. They make you feel at home. The B & B is in a beautiful village. The hospitality shown by Rusty and Pepper is indescribable. The views from the room and the breakfast in the mornings were the best. We went on day trips to Florence and Lucca, but looked forward to returning to Casa La Pace to relax and take in the scenery. The train station is about a 10 minute walk from the B & B. While walking to and from the train and our walk into town to get our nightly gelatos, you experienced the real Italy. Our tours with Rusty through Lucca and Florence were unforgettable. Before we left the B & B, we made reservations to return in a couple of months. We are couning the months, days and minutes until we return. Thank you Rusty and Pepper for this wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent.

Dear opatt, Casa La Pace Bed and Breakfast would like to thank you for your comprehensive review. We love to meet new people and introduce them to Casa La Pace. But the guests who return are the 'seal of approval' that we've done our job well.

You're like old friends and we were happy to see you again. And your travelling companions were just as friendly and easy-going as you and your husband.

We were thrilled to take you all on guided tours of Lucca and Firenze. . Lucca is a 'hidden jewel' and Firenze is infinitely interesting and beautiful. To share them with travelers as inquisitive and enthusiastic as you makes the day much more enjoyable.

Our time together flew by and your departure came too quickly. We are looking forward to your next visit.

Your hosts – Rusty and Peppe

My daughter and I recently stayed four nights at Casa La Pace. Rusty's and Pepper's B & B professionalism along with their Southern Hospitality made for an unforgettable experience. Ghivizzano is remote enough to encounter Italy's "slow travel", but yet close enough to enjoy Florence, Lucca and the Cinque Terre. We enoyed experiencing Rusty and Pepper's favorite restaurants and the tours of Lucca and Florence ( which- Rusty's knowledge of history and his love for Italy- definitely shines on these personal tours). Thanks to Rusty and Pepper's recommendation, arrangements and escort we were able to enjoy a local Spa day on a rainy day.
I could go on and on..... by far our days at Casa La Pace were our favorite of the nine days we spent in Italy. We were sad to leave but our looking forward to returning one day!

Dear LRgogirl, Casa La Pace Bed and Breakfast would like to thank you for your kind review.

We love to share with our guests the best of Tuscany, but especially the gorgeous Serchio Valley. There is so much to do nearby, even on a rainy day as you noted. From the thermal baths at Bagni di Lucca, to exploring the villages that are scattered up and down the valley, our guests never complain of boredom.

We are glad that you appreciated our guided tours as well. Lucca and Firenze are day trips from Casa La Pace and we thoroughly enjoy walking through the Medieval streets with our guests

We had a great time with you and your daughter. You seem like old friends already and we look forward to your next visit to Casa La Pace.

Casa La Pace was all and more. It is a beautiful Inn situated in an idyllic area of Ghivizanno with views of a castle tower not far away. My husband and I were so impressed by the hospitality displayed to us by Pepper and Rusty. We felt like family and cannot thank you enough for the experience of a lifetime.
We are planning a return visit soon, and have told all of our friends it is something they cannot afford to miss!
