APPARTAMENTO BARTOLOMEO

Lucca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Historic Palazzo Inside the Walls

*We normally have a 3-night minimum; however, if 3 nights are not available, we will consider a 2-night stay. Feel free to contact us for details!*

Palazzo dei Fiori is a suite of apartments located in a lovely historic palazzo. The apartments are recently updated in a beautiful style of traditional and antique Italian furnishings updated with modern touches.

The palazzo has an unbeatable location in a quiet little courtyard, just 100 meters from Via Santa Croce, one of the main streets that bisects the center of town. Since you will be right in the center of town, you are a 3-5 minute walk from 3 small grocers, 5 or 6 cafes, the main cathedral, 10 restaurants, and a number of shops. It doesn't get more central than this!

Each apartment features TV, WiFi, refrigerator, cooktop, new cookware, and all dishes and utensils. Bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning and are furnished with all new 160 thread count 100% cotton linens, down and / or synthetic filled duvets, and your choice of synthetic or down pillows. Bathrooms are beautifully decorated in red marble tile with skylights and are equipped with a shower or bathtub, sink, toilet, and bidet.

I came to Tuscany for the first time in 2000 and fell in love with the people, the food, the history, and the scenery. Since then I have spent over ten years travelling around Tuscany, and speak fluent Italian. I love Italy (and especially Tuscany) and take great pleasure in helping others to see the 'real Italy' - the off-the-beaten-path places and experiences that you can't find in guidebooks.

SUPERB APARTMENT IN IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife, our 2 daughters and I stayed at this wonderful apartment in Lucca for 3 nights and had a great stay. The location is right in the heart of Lucca. You feel like a local. Lucca itself was a highlight of our stay in Italy and we travelled around for 4 months! Upon arriving in Lucca we neglected to follow Vanessa's instructions and got turned around. Vanessa and Annmarie came and picked us up and helped load our gear (and children) into the apartment. It was extemely helpful of them though I still feel a bit sheepish about needing rescue!
The apartment is large and beautiful, the maps with resto/shopping recommendations were very helpful and the welcome bottle of wine was delicious. We look forward to returning to Lucca and the apartment the next chance we get.

Owner's Response: Hi Phil & family,
We're very glad you stayed with us, and it was no problem at all to come "rescue" you. The one-way streets and pedestrian zones in Lucca are confusing even to us! :)
Thank you again!

THIS IS A LOVELY APARTMENT, PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We had a large group staying at this lovely apartment in Lucca. We enjoyed the space and Vanessa was amazing with local information and support. The kitchen is perfect for cooking, but we mostly enjoyed the restaurants in Lucca on this trip. The apartment is in the middle of town but tucked away to be quiet yet close to restaurants, the train station and everything that Lucca has to offer. We will definitely return to this apartment when in Lucca.

DELIGHTFUL QUIET APARTMENT CENTRALLY LOCATED

  • 5 of 5
This place is everything as described in the listing. We had arranged to meet Annmarie in the piazza. She showed up right on time and took us to the apartment. We were stunned--it was beyond our expectations. A delightful place with two private bedrooms, a comfortable sitting/dining area, and a nice kitchen area with combo oven/microwave, dishwasher, stove top, refrigerator/freezer, and lots of cookware.

It is well maintained with modern appliances and bathrooms, nicely appointed, and comfortable. We cooked a number of meals and just enjoyed having a place of our own.

Vanessa kept in contact with us leading up to our stay, which is always comforting when you are half way around the world! The informational materials, like a map and descriptions of where to shop, eat, and what to see, were informative and accurate. Annmarie filled us in completely and made herself available, tho we really didn't need her after the initial check in.

The recommendations for food were excellent! Try the Vispa Teresa for a great meal in a comfortable medieval setting. We also really enjoyed the Cathedral museum and the archaeological site at the Church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata. A stroll on the ramparts followed by a bottle of wine is a great way to relax and just take it in. Piazza S. Michele is a lively place, especially as the evening approaches.

We found Lucca to have a delightful energy. The apartment definitely added to the experience. We heartily recommend this place and will recommend it to friends and family. You can't go wrong.

EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
Excellent apartment in very convenient central location; very clean with very helpful furnishings. Vanessa is an extremely helpful and professional host and will answer any questions you have promptly. I have stayed in many holiday apartments in Italy and I appreciated some of the extra touches that made this one so comfortable: for instance, a helpful list of recommended local ammenities, restaurants, bars and shops; and providing plenty of towels in the bathrooms. I would highly recommend this apartment rental (or any other apartment in the same building under the same management).

GREAT APARTMENT IN CENTRAL LUCCA

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is clean and centrally located in old town Lucca (within the city walls). The management of the apartment (Vanessa) is extremely knowledgable, helpful, and reliable. She helped us easily resolve an error we had made with our arrival date, provided us with great advice on things to do in the area, and even coordinated the international return of something we accidentally left behind in the apartment. She was also able to provide us a crib for our infant, which was a huge help. This apartment is a great base for exploring Lucca and I would recommend it if you are planning a visit to this beautiful city!

TREMENDOUS PROPERTY...RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF LUCCA

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommend this property and the other ones owned/managed by Vanessa and team. Apartment was clean, well-stocked with all the amenities you could expect in a rental property. Vanessa the owner was superb. She was very helpful, provided a huge amount of information about the area including maps, suggestions of restaurants and activities. She even researched a specialty activity for us and was able to locate a quality provider. The apartment was just what you would want/expect to experience in the Tuscan region with all the Italian flair we wanted. Vanessa has a few properties available, I would recommend you check out all of them. THANKYOU We loved it.

This apartment's enviable location makes it ideal for exploring all that Lucca has to offer. Since it is located in the physical center of the historic center, all of Lucca is no more than a few minutes away on foot. From here you can explore the amazing boutique shops that line Via Santa Croce and nearby Via Fillungo, visit the city's museums, theaters and concert halls, eat at any of the dozens of excellent local restaurants, and, of course, go for a leisurely stroll on the city's astonishing (and enormous) city walls. Being flat, Lucca is very bike-friendly and bikes (and pedal-cars) are inexpensive to rent for the day at any of a number of local shops.

Lucca is also the perfect city to explore all of Tuscany. Lucca uniquely combines an important mix of ingredients that we believe you'll find nowhere else in Tuscany. Its location is perfect for exploration: 30 minutes from the Leaning Tower and Pisa International, 20 minutes from the beaches of Viareggio, 45 minutes from the mountains, 60 minutes by train to Florence, and an easy 1-2 hour drive to Siena, Volterra, and the rest of Tuscany.
