We stayed at Villa Rosalena for our holiday this year and it was fantastic. We were two families (7 people) and it was just perfect for us. The bedrooms were spacious and all had an ensuite bathroom. The inside living space was great & especially the large dining room which could easily accommodate us for the few meals we ate in the villa. The outside space we used loads - from the seating on balcony area, to the great spaces by the pool and the separate BBQ area. The area around the villa is also great with loads of different places to visit using either a car or the train from the nearby station. There are some fabulous restaurants within walking distance or a short car ride. Rod (the owner) was so helpful and could not have been nicer. The only negative is the 62 steps up and so its not suitable for those with small children or with any mobility issues, but if you want a villa in a great location for a larger group, then this is the place for you.

Stayed 3 nights in villa rosalena and would recommend it very highly.Rod was an excellent host who goes above and beyond to make his guests feel as much at home as possible. He picked us up from station and provided a very welcome snack as it was late. We were very grateful for this as we know it was somethinge had no need to do. Breakfast was served in a nice bright room and consisted of everything you would need. Rod also took us to train station when we were heading out for the day and helped with the ticket machine. (Where would you get that level of service!) There is a lovely portico where you can relax with great views over the river. A restaurant, pizzeria, gelataria and bar are within easy walking distance. The small town of Bagni di Lucca with a few shops and restaurants is about a twenty minute walk though a bus passes by the villa if you want to save your feet. As there are quite a number of steps up to the villa it would not suit those with mobility problems but others should not let the steps put you off though because the welcome, the comfort and the great service are well worth the effort. Well done Rod, keep up the good work and we hope to visit again.

We spent three nights Villa Rosalena, and it was a great experience. The room was large, clean, and comfortable and an excellent value. It was a very quiet and restful spot. The walk up the stairs to the Villa was good exercise. Rod was an outstanding host, very pleasant and helpful, easy to work with by email. He prepared very good breakfasts. We wished we would have planned to stay longer in Villa Rosalena.

Villa Rosalena was the perfect respite after an unrelenting airline experience of delays and missed connections. We arrived during inclement weather and after climbing the stairs, we were rewarded with a stunning view of the Lima River flowing through the gorge with lush green mountains all around. Our host, Rod Swail, was so sweet and helpful....checking in if we needed anything, offering interesting tips for dining pleasures as well as hillside hiking excursions. Our breakfasts were perfect with ham, cheese, yogurt, toast, jam, honey, fruit, pastries, orange juice, and of course coffee....the Rosalena is in Ponte Seraglio about 1.5 miles from the little hamlet of Bagni di Lucca which can be easily walked to...the B&B is clean, simple, bright, genuine and lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our time...it was special. Thank you Rod!

Room tip: We had the Ciccolata room..it had a wonderful vista and light.

Really enjoyed the room with a perfect view and Rod's hospitality! Rod showed us a couple of nice hiking routes, let us stay in another room waiting for our train and finally drove us to the train. Thanks
