TORO VISTA -- AIR-CONDITIONED COMFORT IN THE HEART OF LUCCA!

Lucca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sofa bed, sleeps max. 7

Enjoy all the comforts of home beautifully inside the historic walls of Lucca. Toro Vista is a fully-equipped apartment with air conditioning, that comprises 1 main 'king' bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 corridor / wardrobe room (with single bed on request for the 5th person) one full-aized sofa bed in the living room, 1 bathroom with combination tub/shower and 1 bathroom with toilet, bidet and washbasin. Toro Vista is located on the first floor of a 14th century palazzo few meters from Lucca's central piazza.

The owner of this truly remarkable space, a Broadway producer, has spared no cost in creating a typically Tuscan retreat within the walls of Lucca. The combination kitchen/dining/living room boasts plenty of room and modern conveniences, from the full-equipped kitchen (gas stove, electric oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer), to the oak dining table that converts to a games table, to the leather sofa bed and chair and finally to the television with multi-region DVD/CD player.

The second bedroom features twin beds that can combine into a matrimonial bed on request. The second toilet has a washbasin, toilet and bidet. The main bathroom is accessible from the living area without disturbing the occupants of the bedrooms - so your occasional guests can use the sofa bed and bath with ease. The front windows look out over Via del Toro. The rear windows look out over a lovely courtyard. Even though you will simply wish to disappear into a quiet Tuscan life, the apartment is equipped with high-speed, wireless internet. A local cell/mobile phone is also provided. This 14th century building is located beautifully inside the historic walls of Lucca, on a quiet street, but just one block away from one of the main shopping and restaurant streets of this lovely town.

Between the entrance hall and the twin bedroom, separated by doors on each side, there's a large corridor / wardrobe area with mirrored closets, that on request become a single bedroom (as you can see in the photos, without and with the single bed) or a long triple bedroom for your children together with the twin beds.

Actually, considering the leather sofa bed in the leaving room, the apartment could sleep up to 7 persons.

Toro Vista is your perfect base for Tuscany: Toro Vista enjoys the 'piano nobile' (noble floor) of a 14th century building is located beautifully inside the historic walls of Lucca, on a quiet street, but just one block away from one of the main shopping and restaurant streets of this lovely town. Your stay at the Appartamento Toro Vista is the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy all that Lucca has to offer. The city is the ideal base for your holiday in Tuscany. Located approximately halfway between Florence and Pisa, Lucca's roads, autostrada, trains and buses will lead you to discover all of the magic that is Tuscany. Everything is included. Deposits and rental can be paid in Euros, US dollars, via major credit cards or by PayPal. Free use of a Vonage telephone to call home!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Charles



We had a wonderful stay in Toro Vista. The apartment was very comfortable and extremely well furnished. Lucca is such a beautiful town, we enjoyed every minute of our stay there, hence our extension of the trip by an extra 3 nights. We will certainly recommend it to our friends and relatives and plan to stay there again on our next visit.



I tried to post a review as requested but it would not upload as I had to sign in. I am more than happy for you to post the contents of this email as my review, if you wish.

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.

TORO VISTA IS A PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Toro Vista is a beautiful apartment located in the heart of Lucca.The apartment is newly renovated, clean and well-furnished. It was tempting to spend more time in the apartment because it's so comfortable. If you don't want to cook and clean, there are many wonderful restaurants nearby. It's a short walk from everything we needed yet off the beaten path a couple of blocks. The beauty of the experience is the nice, quiet streets and the serenity of knowing you are in a safe place. We slept with the windows open! The apartment has maps and books about the area as references. We could have and should have spent more time discovering Lucca but the convenient location lent us the opportunity to see many sites outside the Lucca area. Just a few blocks from the bus station and 10-minute walk to the train station, we ventured to Florence, Pisa and Cinque Terra for day trips. The owner is so helpful and a delight to work with, not to mention he is extremely well-versed on all that Italy has to offer. The local manager is extremely polite as well. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

We arrived in Lucca late Monday night after a long week in Rome. We felt like we were coming back home to our own beautiful apartment. It was very comfortable and clean and bright and had all the amenities we had missed in Rome. We loved the light coming through the windows, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook most of our meals at home and the beds were very comfortable.

The owner was very accommodating and both he and his staff went out of their way to help us with some translating we needed for business.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience in Lucca -
Grazie Charles!
