Description

The Space

We are delighted to invite you to our ancient, and completely renovated, "Il Gallo" (the rooster) Bed and Breakfast in the Tuscan hillside above the walled Roman town of Lucca. After a 15 minute drive up from Lucca you will find yourselves surrounded by olive groves with stunning views out over the mountainsides and valleys.

Your room
After leaving your car in the shade of the olive trees, after just a few steps you will be at the private entrance to your romantic bedroom with lovely views from every window - even from the shower! There is an en-suite bathroom complete with toiletteries, a hostess tray for making coffee and tea, free WIFI (also on your private terrace), a ceiling fan, DVD-player and a selection of DVD's and books about Italy.


Guest Access

Depending on the weather, breakfast is served on your private terrace in the olive grove, or in our kitchen. There are sun loungers and a sun umbrella on your terrace. From every vantage point there are gorgeous views over the hills and valleys of Lucca, flowers fill the garden surrounding the house, and silvery-green olive trees cover the hillsides above the house. There is also an ancient plunge-pool, which used to be a washing basin. Therefore it is not a full sized swimming pool! (2,5m x 2,5m) Lounging in the pool is a wonderful way to relax on sun-drenched days. There are a number of idyllic spots to relax with a glass of chilled prosecco, settle down with a good book, to sketch or to paint, as well as paths to explore the surrounding hills. It is a true oasis of tranquility!

Interaction with Guests

We are delighted to share suggestions about day-trips, restaurants and things to explore while you are staying with us. You can always drop in for a chat, a cup of tea or a glass of wine, but if you want to be left in peace it is here for the taking! You may also make a reservation to have a home-cooked meal with us (for a small fee). Please let me know in advance if you would like to take a meal.

The Neighborhood

Our house is one of a tiny cluster of old farmhouses, next to the hamlet of Monsagrati Alto. It is very beautiful and peaceful. Nearby there are plenty of restaurants and pizzerias. Beaches on the Mediterranean are only 30 minutes away. The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and the Cinque Terre are just a few of the possible day trips.

Getting Around

As we are in the hills with NO public transport, it is absolutely necessary to have your own car!! (or motorbike) There is space to park your car nearby to the private entrance to your room.
