Our room was at the front of the B & B, close to the busy street, but the noise was barely noticeable. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom was a good size, and had everything we needed (hair dryer, soap, shampoo/conditioner, shower cap). The breakfast was great: cheese, soft boiled (steamed) eggs, yogurt, delicious cake/pie, cereal, fruit, juice, and coffee. Laura was an excellent hostess; she made sure everyone had enough to eat, and was happy to provide more! Bicycles were available (free) to the guests. We had planned on using them to "ride the walls" in Lucca, but the street traffic was too busy/crowded, and the side walks were almost non-existent. We walked to the old city each day - it took about 15 minutes, and was not difficult (just had to watch the traffic to keep from getting run over). We were able to park our car at the Villa (free), and Laura allowed us to leave it there the morning we checked out for our last site-seeing into Lucca. We were very pleased with our stay at Villa Alexandra, and especially Laura!
