This hotel is exactly what you want for a stay in Tuscany. Perfect surroundings. Perfect views. Ideally located in the mountains for trips to Lucca, Pisa, Viareggio and Cinque Terre. A good restaurant is part of the hotel. You do need a car. The pool is small and not very clean. The staff speaks poor English.

Getting to Villa Volpi proved to be the hardest thing but definitely worth the effort. Great views over the area with nice grounds including a lovely clean pool. A car is essential and eating out will involve at leasta 10-15 minute drive but the restaurant is sensibly priced and the food/service was very good. Only one real complaint which was the hotel bar charging Euro 7 for a bottle of beer.

When we were looking for a place to stay with our 5yo, we just wanted a pool and a place to relax. The Villa Volpi was so much more than we expected. We had a wonderful room, many large common areas, inside and out. The views of the Tuscan Hills were stunning and the staff was absolutely wonderful. You would definitely need a car staying here or they do have bikes for rental. They have a Restaurant and bar on site, so you don't really have a need to leave. I would definitely stay again!

Lovely place if you have your own mode of transport, internet is an extra fee, view and sorroundings are lovely but the restaurant only offers very classy food, no service on Sunday so go prepared especially if travelling with kids. I did find the amenities in the room rather poor quality, lighting was too low ,for such a nice building extra care in the details would make me rate it at 9 ir 10 instead of a 7,8.

Beautiful location, however quite a distance from Lucca. It was a 21$ euro taxi from the train station, a way too confusing to bike there. It was about the same to rent the bikes as well. Had some issues with our room, but the owner took care of us and still would highly recommend the location, if you have a rental car! Cannot even describe the scenery, it is amazing!! If want closer to Lucca, check out his hotel property located right downtown Lucca. That was very nice and convenient as well.

Loved our stay here. The main drawback is the fact that the Villa is located some distance from Lucca and taxis were the only mode of transport unless one has a car. The taxi into Lucca could cost as much as 25 to 30 Euros one way. A bus goes by once a day at 0900H or thereabouts but does not come back up to the Villa. The meals were lovely - breakfast was especially good with a variety to choose from. Supper at their restaurant starts at 2000H and is very good but is not open on Sunday. The restaurant recommended by the Villa that is about half way to Lucca is very good but the taxi they called charged us 30 Euros at noon with no traffic in sight. Overall, a very pleasant stay - Marco, the owner, and Susanna, the evening clerk, were both lovely people and very helpful. Many thanks to them both. Joan & Hugh

An excellent location in a beautiful place. Light touch service - more like a private apartment but staff friendly. Good outdoor facilities but no information at hotel on local area. Also no lunch service on site and restaurant has a narrow menu for evening meals - a cafeteria style service would be really useful especially as the hotel is not in a town or village. There might have been other eateries nearby - but how would you know? A very quiet and quite select spot more suited to couples or small families with well-behaved children. No tea/coffee facilities in room but small fridge much appreciated.

This was the best part of our trip. The location and views from the hotel were incomparable. The web page was very accurate, except make sure not to get the rooms at top of the house - hothot. Lower down rooms are larger and cooler. Once you get used to the laid-back atmosphere, all is wonderful. Beautiful property and amenities. The service is very forthcoming once you ask for something.

If you want to visit Lucca Villa Volpi is in an ideal location. During lunch when everything is closed it is still close enough to the city to just go back to the Hotel for a nap or just hang out by the pool and enjoy the wonderful view! Our room had the greatest view over the valley. Windows have screens installed. The beds are very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and had nice fixtures. Breakfast served was very nice, not just Italian but also scrambled eggs, bread with meats and cheeses. My friend and I will definitely try to return! It was a wonderful weekend getaway.

We stayed for only one night so that it would be fairly convenient for travelling to Pisa airport next day, as the hotel was described as "a stone's throw from Lucca". It was actually 15-20 minutes drive north of Lucca so defeated the purpose of convenience. The hotel itself was in a beautiful setting in the hills but we had booked it on the description for easily travelling to Pisa, which it wasn't.

Beautiful property in splendid location, but staff do not go out of their way to be helpful. First room given was a dingy basement room with very limited view, so we asked to be moved which was done. The restaurant seems to decide for itself whether to open or not (was closed on the saturday night we stayed) so need to be prepared to drive or taxi out for meals. Can be difficult to find if driving there yourself but can follow small tourist signs for Villa Volpi restaurant.

This is a beautiful spot to spend four days and the hotel is very well run. The manager was extremely helpful when I needed assistance from a pharmacist and the rest of the staff always worked quietly and efficiently in the background. We will return if ever we are in that part of Italy again. A drive up into the hills was most enlightening - the farmers are very busy with their olive groves and vines - roads v. narrow so be careful on bends! Lucca is not too far from Mastiano to have an enjoyable day in a most interesting walled city. Reception staff at the hotel will tell you where to find parking inside the walls,near a Tourist Information office.

Hotel Villa Volpi is the perfect hotel in a stunning location. Not at all pretentious and yet, it had a classy feel. The next door restaurant was superb in every way. Our room was lovely, though the bathroom in our daughters room was a little below the standard generally set in this fabulous hotel. Breakfast was also extremely good. I had read that the staff could be unhelpful, but we didn't find this at all. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This otherwise beautiful property was diminished significantly by an extremely poor choice in management and staff. We were made to feel like unwanted guests in someone else’s home. Unfortunate really, as the view and facilities are quite lovely. We were initially given a room quite different then that shown on the website. Of the three nights we spent here, the duty manager and staff had a loud party just outside our bedroom one night and the general manager took over the pool area with a family party (25+ people) the next night. They left broken glass form my children to find in around the pool he next morning. And all of this with unbridled arrogance. I would point out that the restaurant (run under very different management) on the same property was exception in all regards. The food was fabulous and the staff eager to please.

A lovely spot. It was fairly empty when we were there in April, making it feel rather like a private villa in the Tuscan hills. In the summer, when the swimming pool is available, it would presumably be a different experience. To find our way out there, we followed the little signs listing hotels, until the only hotel left on the signs was the Villa Volpi.

In a hot summer period Hotel Villa Volpi should be ideal. One can escape from the sweaty Lucca into the higher and probably colder mountain. However in the first week of May the distance to Lucca is more a disadvantidge. It takes about 20 minutes by car. One would expect to have nice quiet rooms, but we could hear crying children and parents having a dificult time hushing them in the room next to ours. Due to the distance the restaurant next to the hotel is a likely choice. The quality was not that good and the check wa separate from the hotel check (it is one building and seems to be one owner...).

This Villa is great. The view is stunning, good food & wine. We were too early in the season for the pool but between that and walking trails one could easily enjoy oneself without even going to nearby sites such as Pisa or Lucca. Next time we will have to stay longer. Follow directions provided exactly (don't turn off and follow road signs unless instructed to do so)and you will find the property no problem. Check in before it gets dark though as the country roads aren't lit.

This is a unique property in lush surroundings. Our room had magnificent views of olive groves and vineyards and the town on Lucca in the distance. Restaurant was excellent, and we had very good service.This was just as well as the hotel is a bit far from town, so be prepared for the drive up winding roads with steep ascents. Follow directions very carefully; once past the town of Lucca there are signs to the hotel. Would definitely go back again and spend some time around the pool when it is warmer.

If you can find the hotel, you'll have a fantastic stay. We found the directions from venere and the hotel website to be a bit confusing, but once we found it, it was well worth it. The manager, Gian Maria was awesome. He speaks great English and was there to help with our every need. Frankly though, Villa Volpi is the kind of place you should plan on staying at. The countryside around it is so pretty, there's really not much need to take a buch of crazy day trips. Just hang out, go for walks and drive to the nearby towns, then come back and relax by the pool, looking out over the olive groves and fruit trees. The rooms are big and comfortable. The hotel is tastefully decorated, the lounges are warm and inviting and the hotel has every modern convenience. As for directions, the best advice is to call the hotel in advance and ask. Basically, just keep following the signs toward Bagni di Lucca at every roundabout, then at the last one, find the sign for Villa Volpi and take that road another 3 km. Once you find it, you wont be disappointed.

Stunning this hotel is amazing. It is quite dificult to get to with without a car. If your not driving it is best to go to lucca and get a taxi to the hotel which will cost 24euros. The resturant attached to the hotel is closed on a tuesday and so you will need to get to the town to eat as the hotel doesnt provide food. Be warned that if you do get a taxi from the hotel it will cost 25euros each way as they have to come from lucca and they will charge you from when they leave lucca. The pool was lovely and very quiet cant wait to go back

A lovely location a few kilometres outside Lucca. Certainly not easy to find the first time, but you learn the way eventually. The Villa is beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout, and the views from its elevated position in lovely countryside is typical Tuscany. Will certainly come back and have some relaxing time by the pool.

Villa Volpi is a wonderful place for respite..which is what I was looking for..room was large enough but dark...I felt "almost cloistered" with bars on the windows..large bathroom..almost as large as my room...mini bar never worked and you had to find someone to get bar service..tv..telephone..lifts but I used the stairs...thin walls between rooms..could hear even conversations at times. ..Hotel is not in Mastiano, it is serveral curves and bridges downhill..but I was told several good restaurants in Mastiano..Hotel is difficult to find..and almost impossible without a car...Staff is helpful and somewhat friendly..food service is limited..only CB on tuesdays...Ristorante is wonderful..when it is open..excellent food and service..prices reasonable..Hills and valleys surrounding the hotel are very theraputic...olive groves..vineyards..apple trees loaded with ripe apples..didn't find walking trails..and some were either on the road itself or rocky unmarked trails into the hills....Pool area was a little unkempt though nice clean pool.. and again the view was outstanding from this level...My feeling was that Hotel Villa Volpi is a "work in progress"..it is a wonderful old country house and I would go back again...One of the highlights of my stay was a cooking school there with Chef Gianlucca Pardini..a complete surprise but what a treat!!!!Bettye Reece

WARNING: It took me 90 minutes to find this wonderful hotel as I was going in circles near Lucca! Get good instructions before attempting to drive yourself up there! This property was absolutely fantastic!!! The setting is amazing and the rooms were great, really great. We stayed one night there, but next time I will stay more to enjoy the surroundings. Everything went fine during this short stay (other than the difficulty in locating it and the poor breakfast).

The map on the website was a catastrophee! The location plan was very unclear. This can be improved very much! The hotel was lovely, nice pool, excellent bikes, beautiful surrounding, the restaurant was o.k.

Stayed for one week, beautiful location but isolated. If you don't have a car, there is no option but to take taxis to Lucca and back which cost 25 euros each way. Pool is lovely for relaxation, when quiet it is a perfect setting, but if other guests have the same idea, it gets crowded with not enough shade or seating. The adjoining restaurant provides top-class food and views in the evening, however there is nowhere to eat at lunchtime.

Good cop, bad cop on reception. Fingers crossed you get the good guy. Don't worry. If you don't, it will take a nano second to realise. Hotel also advertises a non existent shuttle service to Lucca, (approx 6-7 miles away). Means you need to drive down, dump your car, get a taxi back, and then figure out how to go collect your car the next morning. Rooms good. Breakfast absolutely fine. Lovely setting. Great wee pool, but with only 3 sun loungers, make sure you get there early.

The hotel and its surrondig are wonderful and so relaxing. Quiteness is assured. The hotel is so clean and very care. It was the first time I staying in Villa Volpi but I think I'll back very early because I have to taste the flavours of the restaurant!

As we drove up the hill through the ripening olive groves, past the ancient church on the hilltop surrounded by vineyards, I tried to keep my expectations low so as not to be dissapointed, but my fear was without cause. The Villa Volpi was storybook perfect. The setting was jaw-dropping incredible and convenient to Lucca, a wonderful medieval walled city not to be missed.(Rent the bikes, ride the wall).Remarkable value, very accomodating staff, wonderful restaurant on premises. I'd go back in a minute.

The directions are fair, but signs come suddenly and you must be prepared to turn. Navigation around Lucca and out is a challenge even with directions. That having been said, the hotel was worth any apprehensions in finding it. I wish we could have stayed more than one evening. Pool is to die for view. Food very good and the manager had booked a reservation for us since we were to arrive late. A peaceful and relaxing property with room to walk and common rooms to explore in the hotel itself. After you know the way, it is a very short ride to Lucca.

The room was clean, but smelled of smoke. The air conditioning was barely working so during the day it was quite hot and in the evening it was very cool outside but the air could not make it in becasue there was only one small window in the room and no cross ventilation. The woman caretaker for the villa did not speak much if any English so it was somewhat challenging trying to coomunicate. The man caretaker spoke great English, but he wasn't alwasy around and was very grumpy. The safe in the room also did not work. The shower had great pressure and was excellent. The views and surroundings were beautiful. The restaurant at the villa was very good too, but it was closed on Wednesdays and we did not know. Also, they charge you 5 Euros for a towel to use at the pool. They also have bicycles you can rent and a computer/internet you can rent by the hour. We were never given a key to the gate when we checked in nor was the air conditioning "hooked up" in our room until we formally asked. No one showed us how to operate the air conditioner and it really didn't work anyhow. But for $105 Euros/night, it was still a pretty good deal. Although it wasn't the easiest place in the world to find because the road signs aren't that great anywhere in Italy.

We had a lot of trouble finding the hotel, mostly because it was at night in the rain, and Italy does not mark the streets very well. The directions were vague, and the local McDonalds finally drew us a map. We didn't arrive until half past midnight, but were still welcomed warmly. The hotel is much farther from Lucca than we thought, about a 15 minute drive. It's a lovely place on the top of a mountain, and I only wish we could have stayed longer.

Great place to stay. Very quiet. Great restaurant. Great people. Breakfast (inlcuded) somewhat limited and "low cost", but adequate. Nice to have bikes available for adults and kids, but could use basic tools (e.g. to pump op tires). Would definetely stay there again.

Once found(Lucca being a nightmare to navigate around!)the hotel is in a wonderful setting.The hotel is charming,very clean and comfortable and views magnificent.An old ex-convent, it remains full of character. Only one complaint, our room was opposite the very good restaurant, but with windows open on a hot night, it was very noisy until close. Would definitely reccommend Villa Volpi to anyone, and it's very peaceful by day.

A map will not help you, nor will the signs in Lucca. Get to Lucca and call for help right away. We found a very nice local man who laughed at our map and saved us. The pictures give no indication of how wonderful this place is. The view from the pool is AMAZING! The pool is clean and has comfortable chairs. It's an infinity pool though, so it's a bit brisk. Breakfast is plentiful and excellent (for Italy). The hot water seems to not be available on weekday afternoons, but that's easy to plan around if you know about it. The staff is very nice and the price is amazing for the beauty of this place.

The price was extremely high for such a room (189 € for a room for 4 but without any space once the bed are opened !). The hotel managers are not very friendly. The have organised a wedding which make a lot of noise without having at least informed us. The hotel is extremely difficult to be found. The breakfast is poor. The place is beautiful.

Beautiful small hotel in lovely area, although further from Lucca than had realised. Excellent restaurant, but was closed on Tuesdays. Staff recommended another restaurant for this night which was also excellent. Best food we had in whole stay in Tuscany! Only negative was paper thin walls between rooms, and the hotel had no booking from Venere, only fitting us in as there was space!

Villa Volpi was absolutely charming with great views of the countryside, spacious and modern rooms, and a friendly, helpful staff. The pool was a real bonus. We would have liked to stay longer! The only caution is that it is a bit hard to find especially the first time and is a bit remote without a car (but 15 minutes from Lucca with one) The on-site restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. We loved our stay and have already recommended Villa Volpi to friends who plan to visit the Lucca area.

This hotel could be described as the Tuscan Dream -set on a Tuscan hillside with wonderful views across the valleys to the north of Lucca. The hotel has obviously been restored by someone with good taste(e.g. beautiful wooden beams in the ceilings). Rooms are clean with modern bathrooms. We drove from Pisa airport and found the hotel easily ( although I'm glad we did it in daylight the first time).It was literally 10 minutes north of Lucca but you do need a car.Most memorable moment - sitting outside the hotel with a glass of Vin Santo enjoying the most spectacular lightning storm on the distant hills.A peaceful retreat after a hectic day of site seeing.

the Villa Volpi is beautifully located and tastefully furnished, people are nice and friendly, the restaurant in the same building is excellent. It is much nicer than is seems by the pictures. Too bad, the pool was not finished yet (we did not really mind, though). But we suffered through another big manko: Our room STANK like a rotten toilet. As we mentioned that to the stuff, nothing happened. That sort of messed up the impression a little.

ottimo rapporto qualita'/prezzo(95 euro 1 doppia con colazione). E' situato a 10-15 km da Lucca nella tranquillita' e nella bellezza delle colline.Stile rustico-elegante molto confortevole.Per chi ama (come me)il buio completo per dormire: attenzione alla stanza n. 13,perche' ha un abbaino(e' sotto il tetto)da cui, al sorgere del sole, entra luce.

This 3-star villa is indeed a 4-star, the best of all 4 3-stars we stayed in Tsucany. The property is very tastfully and stulishly furnished, with quality fittings throughout. The rooms are spacious. Highly recommneded. The photos on the web do not justify the pleasant looking and environment of both the property and the surroundings.
