Beautiful Apartment in the Centre of Lucca

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at Court Fatinelli in the middle of the beautiful
city of Lucca. First we planned on using Lucca as a base to do day tours
around Tuscany but enjoyed the city so much that we spend most of our
time there. You´ve got everything you need within 5 minutes walking
distance. The appartment was exceptionally clean and tidy and with
whatever we came up, Fillipo was a great and friendly help and tried to
make our stay as relaxing and easy as possible.
We would stay at your appartment any time again and wish you all the best!

My Italian Home Away from Home.

  • 5 of 5
During the European Summer of 2014, I had the great pleasure of spending 5 weeks at Court Fatinelli in Lucca. During this period 11 members of my family enjoyed the comfort and warmth of the apartment. Court Fatinelli stands in the centre of the medieval part of the walled city surrounded by historical sites, architecture, shops and points of interest, making it the ideal address for access to explore any part of the city. Court Fatinelli holds its own place in the history of the town, both in The Courts intriguing heritage and through the fascinating decor of the apartment. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, clean, well appointed, very welcoming and easy to live in for extended periods of time. One feels instantly at home here with lots of special little touches adding interest and hospitality. The views from every window are of towers, churches, courtyards or across terracotta tiled roofs. The arias and music from the neighbouring conservatorium is like having your own private classical concerts every day. Filippo and Rosella are wonderful landlords, close at hand if the need arises but in no way intruding upon ones privacy. They are both very kind, thoughful, funny and very keen to ensure our stay was a great experience.
Court Fatinelli and Lucca lived up to every aspect of our expectations. My hope is to be able to return again one day and I have no hesitation in recommending Court Fatinelli to other travellers and holiday makers.
Thank you, Court Fatinelli (and Saint Zita) for your part in making my 60th birthday so great.

Owner's Response: Grazie Wendy!
Sapere che ti sei sentita bene come a casa tua, anche se a tantissimi km di distanza penso che sia il complimento piu' bello che si possa ricevere.
Torna quando vuoi e quando puoi, noi e la casa in Corte Fatinelli saremo sempre disponibili per te e per la tua numerosa famiglia.
Un bacio da Filippo e Rossella

Would have given 6 stars if possible

  • 5 of 5
We spent three short days at Filippo and Rossella' wonderful apartment.
With 6 children with us, including an infant and a toddler, who arrived from the Lucca train station, our hosts were most gracious to pick some of us and our luggage by car (and drop us as well).
The apartment was impeccably clean; we were welcomed to a stock of cold water, sodas and beer in the fridge.

Lucca is a great place to set base to see places such as Lucca itself, Pisa, and even a crazy day-trip to Cinque Terra. The whole region is so fantastic, that we want to come to Lucca again. My only condition is that we insist on staying again at Filippo's and Rossella's place again!!

Cheers and Thanks again for such a wonderful stay.

Outstanding - Comfortable, Convenient, Ideal !

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful downtown Lucca location, within walking distance to the entire town. Large, clean, and comfortable for the four of us. The most wonderful thing about this apartment is the host Filippo!!!! He went out of his way to assist us from the moment we made the reservation to the VERY early morning departure on our last day. Up at the crack of down to assist us with our bags. I have rented other places but somehow Filippo just stands out! He is truly kind, gracious and accommodating! If you are going to be in Lucca - this is the place to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Eleanor,
thank you very much for your review!
We (I and my family) wait for you next year.
You have to try September because it is full of fairs, markets and the 14 is the feast of the patron saint: the Cross.
The evening of 13 there will be a long procession which passes through the entire city.

We look forward to seeing you.

Arrivederci

Excellent place for a family stay

  • 5 of 5
Filippo & Rosella's beautiful, spacious apartment was the ideal place for an extended stay for our family group of 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The decor was lovely and the view over the surrounding buildings to the Torre Guinigi quite magical. Filippo met us in our car and escorted us to a free parking spot in a street outside the city walls, so we had use of our car during our 3 week stay without having to get in and out of the Centro Storico. While Rossella explained all we needed to know about the apartment, Filippo carried our bags up the 50 steps without us realising he'd done it! They kindly provided some drinks & basic food supplies for us too.

In spite of a few days rain in October, the weather was generally mild and sunny and good for sight-seeing. We visited Florence & Pisa by train and San Gimignano, Viareggio, Portovenere, Barga, Bagni di Lucca & surrounding areas by car. Lucca itself was a fascinating city...its wide walls providing opportunity for cycling, walking & picnicking, its many magnificent churches and museums, its botanic garden, excellent shopping & great places to eat. We also enjoyed the music wafting in from the Conservatory of Music nearby and two wonderful concerts dedicated to Puccini during our stay.

Thanks for being such generous and helpful hosts Filippo & Rossella and sorry it has taken so long to write this review. All the best for Christmas & the New Year and hope you are able to visit Australia one day!

Beautiful apartment, incredible hosts

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is beautifully designed and decorated, like a place right out of Architectural Digest. Pictures do not do it justice. The accommodations could not have been more ideal, everything was immaculately clean, with every possible convenience having been thought of. Fillipo and Rossella were incredible hosts, so welcoming, accommodating, and helpful in every way. The location was perfect, directly in the heart of the historic area. All of the markets, shops, restaurants just within walking distance. And the nights we stayed in, we cooked with the windows open listening to the music coming from the music school next door. Amazing. We are a family of 6, our daughters ages 9 - 15, and travelled for the month to various cities. We were all unanimous that this apartment by far was the most amazing of them all and the memories made there in Lucca were some of the best of our entire trip, much in part due to the beautiful apartment and the incredible hosts that made it such a great experience. Thank you.

Read your beautiful words filled my heart with joy.
Many thanks from me and from my wife, I hope to see you again in the future and to drink a good beer with you.
next time remember to bring bags smaller, especially in summer, you don't need to have a lot of stuff and what is lacking you can buy in Italy.
I wish you much happiness.

Car: not necessary

Located on the third floor of a building of the fifteenth century and is still owned by the Sardis Fatinelli (with whom he served Santa Zita, later became the patron saint of Lucca), this apartment tells of historical passages by writers and artists such as Manzoni, Gabriele d'Annunzio, Giacomo Puccini and Roberto Sebastian Matta.

The apartment has a private parking space and then you can park your car right outside the front door of the building, inside a private courtyard called the 'Court-Fatinelli' which is closed by a gate.

We are in the exact center of Lucca, in the medieval village, 100 m from the Tower Guinigi, in a private location within the restricted traffic area and therefore without fumes nor the noise of the cars in transit.

When you open the windows you can listen to classical music from the Conservatory of Music 'Luigi Boccherini' which is only a few meters.

We recommend, to know Lucca, to walk the small streets of the old town, taking pictures of characteristic views, soak up the atmosphere of the medieval city, knowing that the most important monuments are all close and focused inside the walls in a radius of about 600 m. from home.

The Ancient Walls surround completely the Centro Storico, are covered by a wide street bordered by two rows of trees and are surrounded by extensive green stands: take the complete ring on foot, by bicycle or horse-drawn carriage is an experience not to be missed.

From Lucca you can ride a bike on the nearby River Park along the river Serchio, in the car on the hills in search of the best oils and wines, get up to the mountains of Garfagnana, with ski slopes of Abetone, visit Viareggio with its sea and the famous Carnival, breathe the atmosphere of 'Puccini' Torre del Lago, pay a visit to Pinocchio Park in Collodi, wait for the sunrise in the nightclubs of Forte dei Marmi.

Even Pietrasanta with its artists, the marble quarries of Carrara White, Cinque Terre, the Terme di Montecatini, Pisa and Florence, are located 'in the day'.

Staying in Lucca you can attend numerous events covering all periods of the year:

March - Exhibition of Ancient Camellias

April - Fiera di Santa Zita with 'flower market' in Amphitheatre Square

July - Feast of St. Paulinus and Summer Festival

August - Summer Festival

September - Procession to Holy Cross with its famous Luminaria, Settembre Lucchese, Murabilia

November - Comics and Games

December - the Christmas stalls in Piazza Napoleone and Piazza San Michele

and ... the famous 'Antique Fair' on the third Sunday of every month (with the previous Saturday).
