This little piece of Tuscany is hidden from view but once you are through the gates you will love the Italian feel of the place the warm South African welcome. My room opened out on to a lovely patio adjacent to the pool and a beautiful oasis of a garden are where you could relax very comfortably and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Service upon entry until checkout was impeccable. Would recommend the place to anyone who needs to escape hustle bustle of everyday life. A very peaceful and safe place. i spent just a night there and i loved the serenity of the place. The breakfast is for the early riser who loves an English breakfast to the person who enjoys a light one.. we were accommodated for from start to end.

We were 4 couples staying for 2 nights. Eddie and the team at Villa Lugano were friendly and accommodating; service was good, place clean and surrounds tranquil. Rooms comfortbale but a little cramped. We made use of the pool area. Location suited our needs - not many options in the area. No hesitation to stay here again.
