Il Cuore is located in the heart of Massa at the base of the Castle and an easy walk to local attractions, fine shops,and great dining. Also a perfect place to stay while visiting Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Porto Venere,.... I had a delightful room with a balcony that lead to a beautiful garden. The decor is heart themed and...

Sometimes the ways of destiny take us where we have never dreamed to be, but in our hearts there's a certain "something" that needs to be done and then , suddenly, you feel like doing it!

Unfortunately, I didn't visit Massa for a holiday. I booked at this B&B for one night, during which my wife was to be in hospital with our son. So, it wasn't a relaxing break, but B&B il Cuore really helped in turning a difficult moment into a very pleasant one. Every corner of this B&B is enchanting, full of attention,...

We have been to Il Cuore several times. We have always been impressed by the excellence and consistency of the service offered. Personal, friendly, genuine. The room we had the year before has been redecorated. It has a little terrace and steps directly down to the courtyard garden. A bijou!

I have stayed at Il Cuore a number of times in the past as I visit Massa quite often for work. It is perfect if you want to be in the centre of the town as it is only a stone's throw from the central piazza, but it is also very quiet and private. The entire place has been renovated...

We stayed there for 3 nights. It is a very romantic hotel. The room and bathroom are spacious, very clean and fully equipped. Extremely comfortable and quiet. Maybe due to the fact that we were there during the off-peak season. The breakfast served is typically Italian, none of that eggs and bacon nonsense :) The staff is extremely nice, welcoming...

I had a wonderful stay at this B&B! I would highly recommend making this place your "go to" if you are going to be in Massa. It is conveniently located in the center of the old historic part of town. It was a quick walk to many great restaurants and shops! The train station is also walk-able. My friends and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cross the antique threshold and you'll enter a small world of emotions. The passion for life, beautiful things and hospitality can be felt, it lingers in every corner of the enchanting B&B where antique and modern blend with harmony, creating an ambiance rich with charm. Throughout the alleys, taverns and ancient shops of Massa's historic centre, IL CUORE Bed and Breakfast is a leap in the past, a place where you will feel welcomed and cuddled and where you will rediscover the pleasure of the conviviality of past times. Nothing is casual, everything is specifically wanted and created by Daniela and Roberto who lovingly selected the decors, furnishings and the many small things that make IL CUORE unique. Let the rocking horses, the old bird cages, the hearts and candles, the Murano glass chandeliers, the sweet and melodic music and the scent of orange blossoms that float in every ambient surprise and enchant you. Every corner is a surprise! The natural and warm tones of the fabrics, the refined elegance of the living room, the intimate atmosphere of the breakfast room, the fragrance of the apple cake that Beata prepares every morning, the light in the garden that enhances the white scented blossoms will make your stay unforgettable, a real revitalization of the body and mind. In the massage room you can enjoy the pleasure of a Shatsu, Reiki or Craniosacral massage among candles and relaxing music. B&B provides bicycles, free of charge, which our guests can use to discover the sweet hills, and reach the seaside, a free and carefree way to visit the nearby areas. If you happen to have a pet with you, IL CUORE and Trilli, our small Maltese terrier, who is the real queen of the house, will welcome you with pleasure. Il Cuore B&B, character and personality in Massa's historical heart. ... more   less
