La struttura è accogliente, pulita e facilmente raggiungibile. Il valore aggiunto è dato dalla straordinaria personalità di Anita, la titolare, che riesce a coniugare la sua simpatia e la sua dinamicità a un rapporto interpersonale autentico, non di facciata, riuscendo a trasmettere importanti valori come la voglia di vivere e l'amore verso il prossimo. Grazie Anita. Speriamo di poterci rincontrare presto.... ovviamente presso la tua splendida struttura!


Incredible B&B & Host - a truly magical Italian experience!

5 on September 16, 2013

Our stay at Anita's B&B was the highlight of our trip -- you simply could not ask for a better B&B or hostess. Every room in the house exudes the love and artistic genius of Anita and the garden is like a fairytale. Anita went above and beyond at every turn and we adored spending time with her, meeting her chickens, rabbits, cat and dogs, and getting to see her museum and her amazing artwork in her workshop. Breakfast was delicious -- including fresh eggs from her chickens if they cooperate, breads and fresh local milk. The rooms are nice sized, lovingly decorated and very clean and quiet. You can borrow her bikes for a pleasant ride into Lucca. The value you get for your money can't be beat in all of Italy. Be prepared for an unforgettable experience - Anita will make you feel like family! Our only regret was not staying longer! Lori - Colorado, US


Three days in Lucca

5 on January 13, 2013

Abbiamo alloggiato 2 notti in questo b&b e siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti. Il posto è davvero bello e ti incanta con la sua semplicità e particolarità, che riflettono la personalità ed il carattere di Anita, persona veramente cordiale, disponibile, socievole e che ti trasmette una grande energia positiva. I servizi che vengono offerti sono quelli specificati dal sito (davvero ottima la colazione); la posizione è molto buona, essendo distante dalle mura di Lucca solo 3 km (5 minuti di macchina) e al tempo stesso lontana dalla frenesia della città. Consigliamo a tutti il soggiorno in questo b&b e speriamo di tornarci noi stessi al più presto.


Wonderful Tuscan Farmhouse with Exceptional Friendly Service

5 on November 24, 2012

Had a wonderful stay, Anita was very personal and instantly made us feel at home. She was also very helpful in suggestions regarding points of interest in Lucca and surrounds. The bedrooms and the rest of the house is exactly what you expect a warm cozy Tuscan farmhouse to be, we were so impressed that we extended our stay. We unfortunately left our mobile phone behind and Anita was extremely helpful in posting it to us and kept following up until we had received it - very much appreciated.


Best B&B Ever

5 on May 21, 2012

We have stayed at alot of B&Bs in Italy and Casa Anita is by far the best ever. The rooms are large by Italian standards, including good size bathrooms.The rooms, house and grounds are very nice and very clean and each room has its own private bathroom including a shower which is not always the case at B&B's in Italy. Anita has set this operation up to be a wonderfully functioning B&B, not just a room to sleep in. Then there is Anita, She made our stay in Lucca great, every morning she had a great breakfast waiting on use and made us anything we wanted including fresh juice, smoothies and fresh eggs from the family farm located right there on the B&B. Anita was very good with directions and gave us tips on things to see that we would have never known about, she even dropped us off and picked us up at the train station when we went into Florece. Lucca itself is a great little town, great food, very safe and a great central location to stay and venture out to visit other towns, close to the autostrada if you have your own car, if not Anita's is also very close to the train station. Her location is also close to the grocery store to get what ever you may need. If you are going to visit the area and go to Pisa and Florence stay in Lucca at Casa Anita you will not regret it.

Fantastic B&B! We stayed here for 3 nights and Anita was incredibly gracious and helpful. Located a few km from city center, but the owner offers rides or free bikes to ride into city center. If you are looking for authentic Italy, you will find it here. Best value and experience we had during our time in Italy! I'm recommending this place to all my friends and family.


Casa Anita, come casa tua...

Siamo stati benissimo, io, la mia compagna ed i cagnetti al seguito, e lo consigliamo a tutti!


The best way to experience Tuscany

5 on November 15, 2011

Casa Anita is by far the most authentic Italian experience. Words can not describe how generous her and her family were to my girlfriend, my mom and myself. We were looking for something that was absolutely authentic Italian. I have family in Sicily that me and my mother visit, so we wanted to feel at home during our stay in Tuscany. Many other bed and breakfast choices are more "Americanized" and that takes away from the true feeling of being in Italy. Casa Anita does an amazing job of giving you the REAL Italian experience, while giving you the most honest and generous hospitality. The bed and breakfast is just a short bike ride away from the walled city of Lucca. Coming down the hill you can see the entire city. It really is an amazing sight. The rooms are absolutely amazing. It is a true Italian experience. From the hand-crafted art by Anita herself, to the huge, original wooden beams that show through the ceiling, I can honestly say that it felt like a dream being there. There is honestly not one single negative I can say about this place. She has a very kind heart and loves what she does. I would pay the price of a room just to take a tour of the house and see her beautiful art. Almost everything that you see on the walls is by her own hands. She is an amazing person and her family made us feel like we were truly loved. We felt as though we had known them for a very long time by the time our time there had ended.


My unforgettable week at Casa Anita

5 on July 30, 2011

I cleave in USA and traveled to Italy this summer, and our first choice was Tuscany! I spent an incredible week with my son and his girlfriend at Casa Anita in June! Casa Anita is a place where everyone should go to experience a genuine hospitality while enjoying the organic surrounding of the farm, and the beauty of the this magical place. The rooms are so unique and artistically furnished! Breakfast is served under a beautiful "pergola" in Anita's garden, where we enjoyed the delicious tarts, cookies, bread and fresh butter everymorning! I would raccomend Casa Anita to everyone who would like to experience a great hospitality, great food and an oustanding service...We will be back..soon! Thank You Anita!....

About the innkeepers

My name is Anita and I'm a host of a B&B located in Lucca, in the middle of Tuscany: the name of the accommodation is "Casa Anita", of course. From about 5 years ago to this time my main activity is to give hospitality to the guests who come from around the world. Here I try to give every day relax and peace during their holidays time. Also, from many years ago, I create a lot of selfmade textile artwork like objects and tapestry of woven. In my laboratory, near the B&B, is possible to look at this.
