Welcome to lovely Lucca
Il Picchio is a charming and elegant B&B in the heart of the beautiful Compitese countryside, just 7km from Lucca, offering a high quality luxury service for those who prefer something beyond the usual hotel or bed & breakfast accommodation.
The house and garden have been lovingly restored by the owners, to create three guest rooms, all furnished with antiques, and original pieces by local craftsmen, a library and sitting room for guests, as well as a secluded garden and terrace.
The unique style of Il Picchio B&B is its ability to provide a "home from home" to give guests an individual thoughtful service and to instil in them the same love of Lucca and its landscapes which brought the owners, Linda and Gordon, from Scotland to make their home here in Tuscany, and to share it with others.
The house is ideally placed for guests to enjoy the best that Tuscany has to offer - although immersed in the countryside, it is only fifteen minutes drive from the beautiful walled city of Lucca (or 30 minutes bike ride through gentle lanes, beside fields of corn and sunflowers); half-an-hour to the Versilian Riviera or the Apuan Alps; and with easy access by train or car to Florence, Siena and other major towns of Tuscany.
