More Room Types

Surrounded by lush gardens, Locanda L'Elisa is in the Tuscan foothills just outside the town of Lucca. Named after Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi Levoy, a sister of Napoleon III, the villa once belonged to a lover of hers. Elisa was the princess of Lucca from 1805-1814, and her former residence is located down the street.

This villa became a hotel in 1992 and has 10 suites and salons adorned with antique furniture. Each of the rooms has satellite TV, a mini bar and free Wi-Fi. Junior Suites also have a living room with a sofa and a desk. 

The villa's restaurant, Gazebo, is housed in a Victorian-style conservatory. Tucked inside the gardens is a swimming pool, which is open from May to September.

Less than a 10-minute drive from the villa is the historic town of Lucca, where you'll find medieval city walls and a Roman amphitheatre. Lucca is approximately 30 minutes by car from Pisa and one hour from Florence.
