There are three classes of suite available, each featuring a separate sitting room, bedroom, and bathroom. All bathrooms have marble floors and walk-in marble clad rainfall showers. Those with custom made free standing roll top baths, carefully positioned to enjoy the panoramic views of the valley - are without a doubt some of the finest bathrooms you will ever see, anywhere in the world. Albergo’s supreme suites are the pride of the hotel, with elegant four poster beds and a romantic garden terrace or balcony. Views from these suites are glorious and stretch in to the valley or across to the medieval tower of Castello Nozzano. The experience of waking up to see the sun rising from the Lucca valley below is a memorable one; this is a venue to truly get lost in.
Albergo Villa Casanova is a historic Tuscan farmhouse dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. The original owners, the Balbani family, built their own chapel and later gave their name to the locality. The chapel features a vaulted roof as well as murals of angels and cherubs. As well as this, many old decorative pictures and images have been found around the grounds and restored to their original place in the chapel. Used by the Balbani family for worship when they were in residence, their private balcony is still in place today.
Nearby the beautiful walled town of Lucca has a long and colourful history. It's existence is known before 218 B.C., when the Roman general Sempronius used it as a base after a battle with Hannibal. In 1805 Napoleon made it a dukedom for his cousin Felice Bacciochi before it was given to the Tuscan state in 1847. In 1858 the Italian composer Puccini was born in the city and every year he is honoured by the "Puccini Festival' in Torre del Lago in July and August.
