“Loved it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

My wife and I brought her parents to Italy for their 50th wedding anniversary. Lucca was highly recommended by some friends as a "must see". We chose to stay at the L'Antica Bifore B&B and we were extremely happy that we did. Here's why; the hosts Stefano and Brid were the most gracious of hosts and made us feel like family. They made restaurant and activity suggestions and even moved our rental car while we were out having fun!!!

This B&B is gorgeous!!

We look forward to returning.

Gorgeous tiny hotel right in the centre of the beautiful town of Lucca. The hotel is on the first floor of an impressive medieval building — typical in Lucca — and has been very well restored to perfectly preserve the original character and atmosphere.

The owners are a great couple and made us feel at home right away. They gave us a quick overview of what to do during our short stay and also recommended and booked a table at probably the best trattoria in town. Ask them to do so for you!

The home-style breakfast is served in the large table of the communal living room, which feels like being a guest at a Tuscan home rather than a hotel visitor. It's quite intimate and you might get the opportunity to meet some very interesting people as we did!

I stayed at L'Antica Bifore with my girlfriend from November 7-9 and it was excellent. The location is in the center of Lucca on Via Fillungo. The bed and breakfast is in a beautiful, old building. Our room was simply gorgeous with high ceilings and beautiful windows. Although our room was situated above one of Lucca's main thoroughfares, it was peaceful and quiet when we slept. The B&B is run by the most helpful hosts that I can recall, Brid and Stefano. We were given excellent restaurant and activity suggestions for our 3 night stay. L'Antica Bifore is the perfect place to stay in Lucca.

The perfect spot. Right in the centre of town in a historic palazzo. Great service from Stefano and Brid, they've thought of everything. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was tasty, and being able to make tea during the day was a lovely touch. Wireless too. Lucca is a lovely city and having somewhere so nice to pop back to now and then while visiting makes it even better.

This B&B was the best place we stayed at in Italy. The room was gorgeous, with angels hanging over our bed, brick walls, situated in an updated tower on the main shopping street of Lucca. It was situated across from an old church turned into an art gallery, so there was no one opposite us when we opened our windows onto the street. The bathroom was totally new. The common area was pleasant with a typical breakfast of pastry, cereal, and coffee. The hosts were wonderful - gave us a bottle of wine to help us celebrate our honeymoon. We look forward to returning there in the future.
