LUCCA -- LUXURY INSIDE THE HISTORIC WALLS!

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!!

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.

Residenza Mansi : Fantastico !

My husband and I spent a month in this large and lovely apartment within the medieval walls of Lucca. The historic neighborhood, also lovely, is quiet and safe. The location is perfect for walking everywhere with ease.And bicycles are available for use by residents. Residenza Mansi is a beautifully renovated space, filled with Tuscan charm and every amenity one could want, including exterior space. Andrea, the property manager is knowledgeable,charming, and attentive. He will make your stay a pleasure. Thanks to Riccardo and his staff at Tuscany Cruises on the Road, we were able to immerse ourselves in Lucca while pleasantly and efficiently taking day trips of interest to us. Riccardo, et al., will exceed your expectations. Before your arrival in Lucca, you will have the support, via e-mail, of the owner, Charles, who is gracious, welcoming, helpful, and amazingly responsive to your e-mails. At the end of the month, we didn't want to leave and hope we can return to Lucca and Residenza Mansi. So, with a gold-medal five- star rating for this wonderful apartment and for those persons associated with it, we are Dolly and Louis, of Greenville and Charleston, South Carolina
Owner's Response: Dolly & Louis--Thank you so much for your kind words for Residenza Mansi and my staff in Lucca. I am thrilled that they were able to contribute to the enjoyment of your month-long sojourn! You were perfect guests and you are more than welcome back anytime!

Beyond Our Wildest Dreams!

The charm and elegance of Lucca is reflected perfectly in this spacious and wonderfully appointed stone home in the center of the walled city. Brilliantly located on a small and quiet cobblestone street, our apartment within the house sparkled with sunlight in the mornings and enjoyed beautiful soft light on the terrace for cocktails at night. We were a party of thirteen visitors ranging in age from 10 to 60 years old and there was never a shortage of room for relaxing or for enjoying quiet moments between roaming the town on foot or bikes-- thoughtfully on site for us. Charles helped us park our car close-by and helped us settle in. We found wonderful cafes, gelaterias, pharmacies close by and Charles took us personally to his hairdresser to introduce us for a hair appointment. And everything within a three block walk of the house! We were amazed at the wonderful schedule of upcoming public concerts planned for the summer season. There is so much to do there from walks and bike rides to nightly concerts in honor of Puccini. The house offered us everything we would need in an elegant family home, from superior linens and beds to a full equipped kitchen for those who enjoy cooking. We will definitely make plans to return. We have done similar visits to houses and apartments in London and Paris, but none can compare to this wonderfully welcoming Lucca home. Thank you so much, Charles, for letting us call your private retreat home for our Lucca stay.

A perfect accommodation in a perfect location

The property is warm and inviting, a beautifully maintained home space with all the extra touches of a fine hotel - a perfect combination for comfort but with a sense of extra pampering. We were a group of 6 and never felt crowded; plenty of bathrooms for all! Dining on the terrace was a particular treat, even for breakfast The manager was incredible, arranging for any and all requests from bicycles to ride around the ancient wall of the city - for the best views - to arranging a private car for an evening excursion to a wonderful restaurant just outside town up in the hills. Lucca itself is beautiful, walkable, tourist-friendly, and fascinating, just what you expect from a romantic walled Renaissance town, and perfectly situated for excursions to all of Tuscany, usually within a drive of 45 minutes to an hour. We will definitely be returning to Residenza Mansi!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind words! You were wonderful guests and it was a pleasure for me and my staff to contribute the enjoyment of your stay any way we could. Please consider returning to Residenza Mansi whenever you next visit Lucca and Tuscany! Charles

Elegant Top-of-the-Line Lucca Apartment

  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Our week in Lucca in Residenza Mansi couldn't have been better. As part of our 50th Anniversary celebration, we were joined by our daughter, her husband, and their two teen-age daughters. The accommodations were very spacious, entirely comfortable, and beautifully decorated. In addition the three bathrooms and kitchen appliances were top-of-the-line. (The Master Bath was the best we encountered during our month in Italy.) The spacious terrace was perfect for breakfasts and dinners (when we cooked). Our host was very responsive and cooperative during our planning and during our stay. On-site, the apartment's manager, Andrea, was gracious, informative and available. There were multiple TVs, supported by a DVD library. The bicycles were very popular with the younger set. We appreciated the separate laundry room, including a clothes dryer! The air conditioners throughout made for a refreshing return after a busy day. Sleeping was scrumptious. The apartment's location was a 10-minute walk to the Lucca bus station, in a lovely neighborhood well within the walls of the historic center of this delightful city. A terrific small market and wonderful pastry shop were just steps from the front door. Dining in Lucca was amazing and the locals were very welcoming. Don't miss the Zuppette at Osteria Via San Giorgio. (We ate there twice that week.) Buses to Florence, Pisa, and Viareggio were frequent and inexpensive. A day trip by train to Cinque Terre was convenient. We are two 72-year-olds in good health, so the thirty steps up were not a problem. Residenza Mansi is a terrific family destination we hope to visit again.
