Getting around

Because we are located in a valley between the Pisan Hills and Lucca, a car is a must. By parking at the Lucca train station, guests have access not only to the beautiful town, but to rail service connecting to all of Italy. An hour train ride will get them to Florence, for a very small €7.60 each way, per person..a real bargain. From Florence, it's only an hour and 20 minutes to Rome, and an hour 30 minutes to Milan via the Frecciarossa bullet trains.

Interaction with guest

We are always available to answer any questions the guests might have, to help plan daily activities, and answer any questions they may have. John is the villa chef, and prepares tasty breakfasts for our hungry guests. Bill is the host for the afternoon Happy Hours, beginning usually at 6:00 PM.


This rental can only be paid for online through Holiday Lettings using your credit/debit card or PayPal (never by bank or wire transfer).

House rules

We encourage our guests to relax and enjoy the villa and gardens. The Italian style of building homes is more vertical than horizontal,, so the villa has stairs to all the bedrooms...there are handrails, of course.

Very Good

“Wonderful B & B”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2013

I recently stayed at Il Rifugio and would like to thank the owners Bill and John for their wonderful hospitality. The B & B is just perfect . It is situated in the middle of a very quaint typically Tuscan village with beautiful scenic views. The house is great, the bedroom with its lovely comfortable bed and fluffy white bed linen is very luxurious, the breakfast is devine and the gardens stunning. All in all it is the best B & B I have ever stayed in and would highly recommend to any future travellers.

“Glorious garden, stunning home, great bed, clean, perfect hospitality”

Reviewed 10 Dec 2012

This is my second off-season stay. Have stayed both April and November. A perfect location for hopping off to Florence or hiking the hillsides near Lucca. Located in the central area of a charming historical Tuscan village from which you can walk to everything -- the best and most economical dining in the area, the flakiest and freshest cornettos/croissants - the most peaceful views. The hosts have a wealth of local information - history, directions, costs - and if you love colorful and vibrant gardens, this is the place to be. My family and I will come back...and back...and back.

“The quintessential Italian experience”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2011

I stayed here by myself in May of 2009 and couldn't wait to bring my husband and return to this magical Italian village and this beautiful little Italian Villa. The owners Bill and John have the most beautiful garden and have made every detail in the rooms perfect. I loved the Italian antiques throughout and I am still dreaming of the view from our window of the village and the church. We traveled all over the country and Bill makes the best cup of cappuccino! They took care of us like family and we can't wait to return! We recommend this for a romantic getaway!
