Lucca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths (Sleeps 7/8) Optional bed & bath

Residenza Mansi I

The ultimate in luxury! A Broadway Producer's Private Retreat in the heart of Lucca’s 'centro storico.' Every possible care has been taken to furnish and present this apartment in a luxurious and opulent manner that will delight even the most assiduous holiday makers.

Exceptionally large and spacious, there are four bedrooms, three full bathrooms (a feature being the main suite’s incredible double en-suite with connecting shower room.), three dining areas, a sitting room with balcony, a television lounge, two kitchens, and a very large terrace.

Tuscan charm with all the modern conveniences: air conditioning, central heating, wi-fi, satellite, flat screen TVs and more!

The full apartment is extremely spacious for 6 guests. The fourth bedroom is perfect for children as it contains a trundle bed (can be for two people), but the room leads to the terrace, so there is reduced privacy.

For an additional rent, there is a fifth childrens' bedroom and full bath

Be sure to read our guests' reviews.....: ...we are very proud of our 5-Star Ratings!!

Why Charles chose Lucca

Lucca is slightly lost in time. It is a perfectly preserved jewel of times gone by, yet it has all the modern conveniences. It boasts an opera company (Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini), a theatre, a soccer team, and many museums. Beyond all that Lucca has to offer, it is the perfect base to explore Tuscany and the Italian Riviera.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Charles,

I just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Lucca!

Your manager, Andrea, was incredible and he was there to answer every question and to help in any way that he could (he even escorted us to the eye doctor!). Riccardo, the driver you recommended, was amazing and took such great care of us. The accommodations were perfect and I’m having a hard time sleeping in my own bed after sleeping on that comfy bed. Also, I got engaged while I was there so Lucca will always have a special place in my heart!

Thank you again!

Spacious apartment, great location, superb kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for a week during the Christmas holiday as a group of six. The apartment is spacious, furnished with above-average to excellent furniture and appliances, and with a superbly-furnished kitchen, which we used to prepare a traditional Christmas dinner--something we'd never attempt in most vacation rentals. The location is great, within three blocks of the center of old Lucca, with wonderful food shops and restaurants within five minutes' walk. It was easy to make the arrangements with Charles and his local agent, Andrea, and we had no problems whatsoever. We left regretting only that the stay couldn't have been longer.

Lucca & Luxury Personified

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisting of adult children, grandchildren, siblings, in-laws and friends stayed at Residenza Mansi during the month of August, 2014. Age range was 10-78. Some for a few days, some a week and most two weeks or more. The apartment is large, very attractive, very well equipped and in a superb location. There is space to gather and space to be alone. Charles' Manual was full of useful information which we continually referred to for: fresh pasta, fresh morning pastries, the deli for its fabulous salamis, cheeses, bread and wine, the best pizza in town, the best gelato in town, the best restaurant(s) in and outside the wall. Andrea was a huge help in where to go on day trips and so we covered many miles in Tuscany and further: Rome (overnight), Florence (overnight), Forte dei Marni (massage on the beach) Viareggio, Carrara, Pisa, Sienna, Volterre, and Chianti vineyards. We went by car (ours) and sometimes Riccardo as our driver, local bus and train.....and then we came HOME to Residenza Mansi. This apartment made us feel like it was ours - not renters! The sounds of the neighboring children playing in the courtyard, laughter and clinking glasses at night - all ours to behold. The Church of Ste. Michele became our "parish" church, Puccini Square our Concert Hall. Thank you Charles, Andrea and Riccardo for providing this comfortable, convenient and beautiful Home away from home. IT WAS VERY HARD TO LEAVE.

Residenza Mansi

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property to rent for a family of 6 to 8. The location is perfect to cover the area inside the walls of Lucca and is conveniently close to the Bus station. Moreover, Charles has a very comprehensive collection of maps and books on the area which are very useful if you have not visited this location previously. We heartedly agree with the recommendations provided by Charles for restaurants and the fresh pasta made on Via Crocifisso is to die for. This property has ALL the home comforts you could ask for including a separate Wi room for the children to play their electronic games without annoying the adults. And even though there were Rock Concerts going on a night it was blissfully quiet inside. Andrea provided all the customer service we required and the Pizza Bomba at Cafe Rustichella will bring us back to Lucca one day - if we live long enough!

Worth Every Penny

We rented Residensia Manzi for 5 days. I was apprehensive going there with 5 teenagers ages 13 to 15. I thought it would be too slow paced for them. I was very happy to be wrong. We spent a week on a cruise in Greece and then 5 days in Lucca. Residensia Manzi had all the character of a Tuscan home but also all the modern conveniences. Our kids loved the long dinners we prepared at home, then dinner strolls hunting for Gelato. Lucca was a great jumping point to Siena, Florence, etc. Charles and Andrea were also very helpful in helping us plan our vacation. I highly recommend Residensia Manzi. Our teens actually said Lucca was their favorite part of our trip. We have beautiful memories of our stay and hope to come back soon."

A Wonderful apartment in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 arrived here in April for a 5-night stay. We were so impressed with these accommodations and with Lucca! The apartment is very large, very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to begin our Italy Adventure. During our stay, we arranged a cooking class in the apartment with Alessandra. What a treat! We would highly recommend this as a special experience. And, Lucca is a delightful spot. We loved strolling around the town, walking around the ramparts and eating at the many charming cafes. This place is a gem!!!!

Wonderful Stay In Lucca In An Amazing Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this incredible apartment in Lucca was top notch from beginning to end. The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated, fully loaded with anything you could ever need or want and ideally located. There were six adults in our group and this apartment accomodated all of us perfectly. Some of us could be watching TV, others could be reading or working on our laptop or just taking a nap & we were never disturbing each other as there are so many separate spaces in the apartment to pick from. The service we received from Andrea was perfect. He was very responsive & informative. The information we received before we arrived was very good & the book of instructions left for us along with the directions given by Andrea upon arrival were helpful & very much appreciated. The apartment & it's amenities made it very easy for us to feel as though Lucca was our "home". I cannot say enough about how thouroughly we enjoyed our stay at Residenza Mansi. We cannot wait to return & highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Lucca.
