We aren’t just a B&B … we are a Locanda (inn), a place that, traditionally, offers a refuge for travellers, a respite place where you can recharge your batteries for that journey ahead, or a place to begin one. Our beds are very comfortable and our rooms are quite spacious (the reason we have included the word ‘room’ with ‘Bed & Breakfast). Our breakfasts are lavish, served with love and imagination.

WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO LOCANDA SAN GINESE.

As soon as you arrive, you’ll feel as if time has been suspended, and that all your problems, all the deafening noise, and all your worries are now a thing of the past.

Locanda San Ginese is located in San Ginese di Compito.

To get to San Ginese, and to our Locanda, you’ll need to go into green open spaces and into silence … interrupted only by the sounds of the countryside.

We are in Compito, c. 5 miles from the 16th c. walls of Lucca. The area is on level ground and the winding street from Lucca leads to Pontedera, to the slopes of Mt. Serra where you can go on an excursion, have a picnic or go hiking, or just enjoy the breathtaking view overlooking the city of Pisa, and more …
We are in an ideal position where you can unwind, relax, and also where you can visit numerous tourist resorts of Tuscany, many of which can be reached in less than an hour, or however much time you wish to devote to tourist adventures without wearing yourself out.

The area is famous for its first rate olive oil, for its honey, and for its edible delights, and especially for having given the name to a famous bean---the cannellini bean!
Locanda San Ginese---Bed, Room and Breakfast---was conceived in an old country house which has been completely restored while still respecting the original features of the house. The house has a marvellous balance of terra cotta tiled floors and ceiling beams along with chestnut-wood rafters. Breakfast and possibly dinner (depending on the season), comes served in the cozy living room or under the veranda on the yard in front of the house, thus allowing you to enjoy the view of the beautiful cottage and its ‘mandolato (intriguing brick work design).

Maps and guides of the area, business cards of restaurants, leaflets, programs of events and much more are available to all our guests during their stay.

02 Pinocchio

Maximum Guests: 3
The Pinocchio Room, of the little coffee cups, Mamma Lucia’s armoire and the tiny window. The room is tinted in shades of green with two armchairs from Brown Elephant Chicago and a desk. There is a bookcase hewn from a lovely niche in the wall. An English bookcase ’Globe’ contains a small collection of old little coffee cups. Also a vintage poster of the film “Pinocchio” hangs on the wall. And the little window defies description… it must be seen.

Alida, the hostess, is the most wonderful owner of all of our travels. She is like an old friend or relative welcoming you to her home. She is funny, smart, helpful, and caring. Her accommodations have a whimsical magic about them and everything in her farmhouse is a testament to her own personal magic and love for life. We did not want for anything while staying there and felt so relaxed and free in her presence. Her B&B makes us want to move to San Ginese and buy a farmhouse like hers. We love Alida, and know her future guests will feel the same charm as we experienced. Pamela Gamble from Colorado.

The answer from the host:
Dear Pam (lovely Spinachi Girl!) thank you so very very very much for this review that made my day.. even actually my day was already made by you because it' s so easy and wonderful to be a great hostess when guests are adorable like you Soul Sister and your friends (now also my new friends!) Toby and Leah (Zuccherino!). I wish you a beautiful stay in Florence, Milan and Venice and look forward to meeting you elsewhere and start talking and laughing as we just left each other! GRAZIE. Ciao. Alida.

It was an execptionally nice stay at the Locanda, completely relaxing and calm, with Alida being a "great advisor" for trips and visits to be made in the Lucca-Firenze area. Will stay there again in case I'm in Tuscany.

Accoglienza meravigliosa; i gestori sono estremamente cortesi ed attenti alle tue necessità. Le stanze sono ampie e ben arredate, ma soprattuitto pulite ed ordinate. Amano gli animali e con la mia cagnolina Aska ci siamo trovati super-bene. La colazione è ottima. Mi sono sentito come a casa! Ritorneremo sicuramente!

Sorprendente Locanda. Si è circondati dall’aria pura, dai gelsomini, dal verde, dall’allegro scodinzolare di una giovane cagnolona, si è avvolti dalla pace. E dalla cordialità e gentilezza di Alida, instancabile locandiera capace di trasmettere energia e calore umano. È come stare in famiglia, o fra amici dal profondo affetto. Le camere sono spettacolari: ampie, comode, generose, accoglienti. Hanno un numero ma anche un nome proprio, che non rivelo, perché la Locanda merita una visita e un incontro con Alida, Luca, i loro cani, i loro gatti. Che diventano anche un po’ nostri. Colazioni abbondanti, ci si dimentica dell’orologio e non si ha bisogno della tivù. Ho ricaricato le mie povere vuote pile, portandomi a casa profumi ritrovati, sorrisi gentili e sì, un po’ di nostalgia. Ci torno. Andateci. È un posto dolcemente magico.
stayed from 06/14/2018 to 06/17/2018
The answer from the host:
Grazie Lidia! Anche per noi avere te, Ilaria e Shira da coccolare è stato un immenso piacere. È proprio vero che qui arrivano persone speciali che ci lasciano addosso un po' della loro polvere dorata e magica. Grazie di nuovo e buona giornata se leggerai questa nostra risposta domattina, altrimenti buona notte, grande Lidia!

B&B confortevole, in un luogo tranquillo, con cani e gatti a gironzolare liberi, così carini! Gestori gentili e colazione ottima, insomma da consigliare.

La Locanda San Ginese è situata nella splendida cornice dei colli fuori Lucca, vicino alla zona di Compito. È consigliabile recarvisi in auto, ma nel caso in cui non siate automuniti è comunque raggiungibile con i mezzi pubblici da Lucca. A pochi minuti di cammino, potrete trovare il Frantoio Sociale del Compitese e la trattoria da Paolo e Paola, nel caso in cui dobbiate provvedere al cibo. L'accoglienza dei gestori è squisita, il mio ragazzo edi io ci siamo sentiti serviti e riveriti. Siamo davvero soddisfatti dell'esperienza: dall'arredamento alla pulizia alla colazione, tutto è estremamente curato.

The answer from the host:
Cara Celeste e caro Andrea, grazie. È stato un grandissimo piacere conoscervi e parlare con voi. Naturalmente la "cornice" ha aiutato sia voi che noi ad apparire persino migliori di quello che siamo! Ci auguriamo di rivederci in futuro, camelie o non camelie, e per ora un abbraccio dai vostri locandieri preferiti!

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
