We arrived very early in the morning hoping to drop off our luggage. Marta invited us in for breakfast after our long flight. I would give her guest house double 5 stars ratings for everything. She is a wonderful introduction to Italian hospitality - and the homemade jams are wonderful.

Can't recommend Marta Guest House enough. A well presented building and grounds with great attention to detail. Magnificent breakfasts and opportunity to mix with other guests or dine alone if you wish. Local knowledge and suggestions of where to go and when made our visits to Pisa, Lucca and our travel to La Spezia after we left Marta so much more interesting.

Staying with Marta in her guest house was unbelievable. She and her staff are so friendly and helpful. They could not do enough to make our stay perfect (this included transfers to and from the hotel, as we did not have a car) and the house itself is just beautiful. But it is the breakfasts that really cannot be described accurately. Marta's breakfasts are legendary! Added to this, there are really good restaurants of all types within walking distance. What more can you ask for? We can't wait to go back.

Beautiful villa! Truly feels like you are in Italy. Marta tries very hard to please her guests and offers excellent suggestions on surrounding areas including maps. Her breakfast meals are unbelievable and leave you full until late in the afternoon. Thought I would have a shower in my room, but the balcony view made up for this drawback. The best idea is to have a car which I did not, so it was a bit challenging at times to get to where I wanted to go. I would definitely recommend it!

This place was fantastic ! We wish we had stayed here for all of our trip to Italy. Marta, the owner is so friendly, helpful, informative and she serves a great breakfast. She had lots of suggestions regarding places to eat, places to see etc. The Guest House is very, very nice. It is like stepping back in time to the older days --wonderful. Next trip to Italy will definately include Martas' Guest House.

Having never stayed at a B&B, we really didn't know what to expect. I believe this was likely one of the better experiences one would have but, for us, the anonymity of hotel stays are preferred. Marta is a most gracious hostess and goes beyond any concierge I've ever dealt to accommodate her guests! The room we stayed was exactly as depicted on the website. The grounds are lovely! For the B&B experience, we would definitely recommend! HOWEVER, a good map is necessary to locate!

What a find between Lucca and Pisa! Marta, her family and staff made me feel like family. The location of the guesthouse is idyllic & a well-kept secret in this area of Tuscany. The best food and wine were served; always friendly suggestions were given for the hilltowns and unknown smaller communities for day trips. Marta is a perfectionist when it comes to customer satisfaction. Ultra-clean, comfortable rooms, beautiful gardens and a safe property made this solo traveler's stay "simply the best". I give Marta's 5 stars.

Marta Guest House was my and my wife's 2nd leg of our honeymoon (6 days). Marta and Roberto were wonderful hosts. Our first night, we didn't get in until late. Marta served us a platter of cheeses, bread, salami's, olives, dessert and a nice bottle of local wine. A terrific start and welcome. The location is 20 mins away from Pisa and 15 mins away from Lucca, both with outstanding surroundings. This was also a perfect base to visit Genova, Parma and Firenze. Roberto was an encyclodia of information and local eateries with Marta handling all the breakfast goodies. A local restaurant, La Cecca, defined Tuscany at it's culinary best. Marta Guest House was a surprise treat in the heart of Toscana.

The Marta Guest House is wonderful - from the warm welcome to the beautiful rooms. The breakfast just keeps on coming and is served in the garden on fine days. The guest house is approx 20 minutes drive from Pisa airport and with free parking it's a much nicer option than staying Lucca. Highly recommended. Hope to return one day. Thank you Marta for making my stay so good.

Marta Guest House is a wonderfull villa with great owners. They were very nice and helpfull. We appreciated especially their friendly and cordially approach. Rooms are stylishly decorated, look very nice, towels are changed every day. We especialy enjoyed home-made breakfast (cakes, marmelade, juice which Marta prepared). We recommend this villa to anyone, who likes nice countryside, stylish house, quite surrounding and friendly treatment. Marta, Roberto and Giorgio - thank you very much!

We enjoyed two fantastic days at Marta Guest House, we would have stayed longer! The B&B is beautiful, with decorated walls and ceilings; the rooms are spacious and spotless clean. The most pleasant element is the warm and friendly welcome that Marta and Roberto offer to all of their guests. Unforgettable atmosphere!
