Well-equipped apartment that's perfect if you want something bigger than a hotel room, or with better facilities for cooking, relaxing, etc.
The manager was very welcoming, e-mailing me the day before to arrange a time to drop off the key (and arriving promptly at that time), and happy to answer any questions.
The apartment is on the fourth floor, with a lift (elevator) to the third floor, but it does need climbing a short flight of steps to the door - so will be difficult for some people.
The apartment itself is clean and spacious, with a well-equipped kitchen, so it's perfect for eating in if you want it.
It's in a great location (about 15-20 minute walk from the train station), walking distance from all the main sights in Lucca.
Internet access is included, but be warned that it's not guaranteed because it's a capped download per month. So if the previous guests have used it all up, you might be out of luck! So the property does ask you politely to limit your use and be considerate of others - but of course they can't enforce what previous guests do. While I was there, there was no problem at all.
Highly recommended, and I will definitely stay there again if I return to Lucca.

This is a small B & B, the rooms are basically furnished but spotlessly clean with an unbelievable comfortable bed. Veronica and Paolo the managers/owners were always available by phone and more than helpful. I want to keep this place a secret but that seems a little unfair. I do however recommend that guests make a note of the address as there is no name on the property.

The hotel is excellent and the rooms are well decorated and clean. It is in a lovely village with great well-signposted walks almost outside the door. There is a small kitchen with a fridge available. There are no staff as such and breakfast is in the cafe across the road. If you like a nice quiet place this could be for you. It is in easy reach of Lucca, Barga and Castnovo di Garfarganga.

Whilst the hotel itself was a little dated in decoration, it was impeccably clean. Staff were kind and helpful, and their restaurant recommendations were spot on. We were able to walk all over this lovely old town. The roof has a covered patio area and the views are incredible.

Lucca is an excellent location to take a break from sightseeing. LaColonna BnB is the best place to stay to relax. Easy taxi ride from train station (you can walk 15 minutes with bags, but not so easy). Our room was on main floor &nice breakfast. Mirko, who speaks excellent English, greeted us at check in. He gave us a map and pointed out all the highlights and good restaurants. LaColonna BnB is close to every thing because Lucca is very small. Easy to take a day trip to Pisa via train or bus. Easy to take the train from Lucca to Siena (via chg at Pisa & Empoli). We enjoyed our stay and would go back. We have travelled a lot to many countries; we give this place a good rating.

Enjoyed a very relaxing week at La Sequoia. Total relaxation in a beautiful place. The owners were brilliant and are always on hand if needed but at the same time not intrusive in any way. Many times only us by the pool! Would recommend this place wholeheartedly. We hope to return soon.

"Great property, facility and grounds, owner run."
Historic Villa very nicely converted. Great staff, well kept and very clean facility. Owner on premises every day. Attentive general manager, high quality dinning and beverages, comfortable lounge and bar and the staff cannot do enough for you. We were here in the off season and personal attention was superb. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and associates.
