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!
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.

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.
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.
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!
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.
Located on the third floor of a building of the fifteenth century is still owned by a noble family (with whom he served Santa Zita, later became the patroness of Lucca), this apartment tells of historical passages of 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 at the front door of the building, in a private courtyard.
We are in the medieval village, 100 m from the Tower Guinigi, in a private location within the restricted traffic area and therefore no fumes nor the noise of the cars in transit.
Opening the windows you can hear classical music from the Music Conservatory 'Luigi Boccherini'.
We recommend, to know Lucca, to walk the streets of the old town, photographing characteristic views, soak up the atmosphere of the medieval city, knowing that the most important monuments are all close and concentrated inside the Walls in a range of about 600 m. from home.
The Ancient Walls completely surround the Old Town, are lined by a wide road bordered by two rows of trees and are surrounded by extensive green bleachers: 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 excellent oils and wines, go up to the mountains of Garfagnana, with the ski slopes of Abetone, visit Viareggio with its sea and the famous Carnival, breathe the atmosphere 'Puccini' Torre del Lago, to visit Pinocchio Park of Collodi, wait for dawn 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, can be visited 'in the day'.
Staying in Lucca you can attend many events covering all periods of the year:
March - Exhibition of Ancient Camellias
April - Fair of Santa Zita with 'flower market' in Piazza Amphitheatre
July - Feast of St. Paulinus and Summer Festival
August - Summer Festival
September - Procession to Holy Cross with the famous Luminaria, September Lucchese, Murabilia
November - Comics and Games
December - the Christmas stalls in Piazza San Michele and Piazza Napoleone
... and the famous 'Antique Fair' on the third Sunday of each month (with the previous Saturday).
