Franco's Friendly Villa - Bed & Breakfast

La Cucina

Franco's Friendly Villa, built in the 1900s, is a family home lovingly restored to its turn of the century elegance and transformed into exquisite bed and breakfast accommodations set in the heart of Tuscany.  We offer a peaceful stay in one of our 6 rooms and suites and an excellent breakfast experience, made fresh daily on the premises with local products.

The owners, Franco and Ida Marchetti, take care of the home and its visitors themselves.  The villa has been in the family for over four generations since it was first built by great-grandfather Lorenzo Ambrogi.  Today, it has been completely renovated, adding the amenities of a modern hotel while keeping the original historic structure of the home.

So in the morning, you will be served breakfast in the "taverna" next to the old stove where they baked bread.  And in the evening, you will climb the century-old stairs to your bedroom, where you will enjoy 21st-century comfort with 19th-century charm.  In short, Franco's Friendly Villa is an authentic Tuscan bed and breakfast with the conveniences of a great hotel and the warmth and familiarity of a private home.

Standing proudly at the edge of town in Diecimo, Italy, in the valley of the Serchio River between the cities of Pisa and Florence, Franco's Friendly Villa offers a relaxing holiday retreat. Surrounded by a mountainous panorama, this quiet Italian town charms visitors with its location off the beaten tourist path and with its traditional way of life. Set out and explore the surrounding areas in search of Italian cuisine, wine, and culture in the cities of Lucca, Pisa, or Florence, all within a hour's drive.

But the outstanding feature of this bed and breakfast is the attention to its customers - their needs, their tastes, and their desires.  We offer personalized service, from suggestions for day trips to the surrounding towns and countryside, to "made to order" breakfasts. We guarantee the privacy, freedom, and most of all, the satisfaction of all of our guests.

Come experience the best of Tuscany! At Franco's Friendly Villa, you will be part of the family!
