Dear Val & John
Many thanks for your kind words and delighted you all had such a nice time and managed to explore so much. We chose the location as Lucca has so much to offer and the transport system is so good, allowing you to visit so many different things. The restaurants are amazing, offering so many different Italian meals.
Best wishes, Hugh

We hope to see you again too! We agree about the cobbles, flat shoes are a must in San Cassiano as it is quite steep in places. I think some of them are the original mule paths. Still, no trafic means it's very safe for children. We do have guests aged over 70 who manage with the paths, they take them slowly, but as there's no rush in Italy for anything anyway that's OK. It's downhill from the restaurant, that's the main thing! At least with the hills you get great views.
