Overview

Lucca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Vacation the Italian Dream!!! A Hollywood Production Designer and his wife have restored this gorgeous 16th century spacious apartment, ensconced within the medieval walls of Lucca. Perfect for families, friends and romantics all year round.

Situated on the second floor of a 16th century palazzo, in a small quiet piazza, next to the beautiful 11th century San Paolino Church. The apartment was recently restored by a Hollywood Production Designer and his wife and is on two floors, measuring 200 square meters (over 2,000 square feet).

On the first floor is the gorgeous entry hall, master bedroom with a king size bed with views of the church, an office, a bedroom with a queen and two twin beds, a large open plan living room and dining room that has a table for 10, two full bathrooms and a lovely sunny kitchen. Upstairs is another queen bedroom and full en suite bathroom.

The upstairs can be reached from the main floor, but also has it’s own entrance from the outside stairwell for privacy. The apartment can comfortably sleep 8.

Throughout the apartment the original Italian tile floors have been restored and the antique Murano chandeliers cast a beautiful light upon the subtle traditionally hand painted walls. Towering double doors, that have been restored, to show off their original grain and hardware, lead into each room.

The southern exposure and large windows allow for beautiful views of Lucca and the Tuscan sunshine to pour into every room.

Versilia beaches are easily reachable by train, bus or car - e.g. Viareggio is 20 km and Forte dei Marmi is 29 km.

Why nancy lumb chose Lucca

It was our dream to live in Italy and this is our dream home - if you close your eyes and think of Italy most likely you'll be thinking of our apartment in the heart of Lucca

What makes this apartment unique

the apartment is within a quiet piazza, steps away from and 11th century church, a pizzeria, the movies, grocery stores, clothing shops, Puccini's's monument and all the landmarks which help make Lucca the quintessential Italian Tuscan town

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a very long flight from australia, we tried in vain to negotiate the one way system within the walls of Lucca. Nancy had very kindly provided us with a good map and directions, however it was too much for our weary brains so we resorted to calling Vera, who came and guided us to our apartment. We arrived at the door after a lot of puff climbing 3 flights of stairs, but the climb was well worth it once we saw our beautiful abode. The apartment was perfect in every way... comfortable, clean, spacious, bright and airy, gorgeous furniture, and an eclectic collection of magnificent chandeliers! We had everything we needed and more. Vera kindly left us some basic supplies for which we were very grateful after a 37hr journey.

Nancy quickly dealt with one small plumbing problem that arose, and Vera dealt with the plumber, thereby leaving us free to go out and explore Lucca.

The apartment is perfectly situated, and walking distance to everything. Lucca is a great base to explore Tuscany from, and we certainly made use of the numerous suggestions that Nancy gave us.

We had one major problem at the end of our stay... we didn't want to leave! We could have happily stayed for weeks and weeks, but unfortunately all good things come to an end. However, we can't wait to return, and hope to do so soon. Thankyou Nancy for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home, and for being such a pleasure to deal with.

Casa Bella is Bella!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed staying at your apartment in Lucca! It is a fabulous place and we were so very comfortable there. Thank you!

The location is fantastic and everything about your apartment helped us feel right at home. It was perfect. We also loved meeting Anna! We did a little tour of Lucca with her and she was fun and personable and knowledgeable it really helped us get acquainted with the city.

I highly recommend this place!

Casa Bella is Magnifica!!!

  • 5 of 5
After returning to the US from 3 weeks traveling through Switzerland, Italy, France, and England -- our time in Lucca,staying at Casa Bella, was chosen as "the best" by all. Not only was it perfect for my wife and I, but our 13 and 18 year old sons loved it, too. It was beautifully decorated, centrally located, and had the perfect mixture of old-warm charm and modern conveniences. The views from each window were beautiful, rivaled only by the sound of the bells chiming from Church of San Paolino, where Puccini learned to play. The rooms are large, with massive ceiling heights, and beautifully furnished. There are so many gorgeous details from the painted ceiling to the fabulous tiled floors to the detailed woodwork. Truly a magnificent -- magnifica -- oassis. Thank you for letting us share in your Lucca paradise.

Lovely Lucca

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three generations spent a month in Italy and Lucca was one of the most unexpected highlights. Casa Bella was absolutely perfect in every way. We fell in love with the floors, the location, the generous space. It was the ideal Classic Italian apartment filled with every modern convenience. we leisurely rode bikes around the top of the wall admiring the lovely scenery, drove through massive fields of sunflowers, attended concerts, had delicious meals at wonderful restaurants and enjoyed the beautiful shops. My twelve year old granddaughter particularly enjoyed having gelato at the end of the street. Lucca was originally a stop between Venice and Rome but it turned out to be a destination that we will return to again. It is an easy city to see without a car but the countryside is spectacular and it is very accessible to both Pisa and the coast. Nancy was a joy to deal with and made our planning very easy. everyone in our family came away wishing we could stay and truly loving Lucca.

A Beautiful Place to stay in Lucca!!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this place!! There was plenty of room for five adults in this spacious apartment. We would all gather in the living room and relax or we loved to go to the market and buy food to cook for dinner. The kitchen was very big and had all the things we needed to make many dinners!
It was located in a very nice location; close to many shops and restaurants! And the place looked just like the photos; no surprises. We used the bikes that were offered and rode on the wall; you have to do this!!!
It's a beautiful and clean place and when you open the windows there is a great breeze. I had the room at the top and felt like a princess!
Enjoy your stay! Ciao!

Best place we stayed by far during our 6 week trip to Europe

  • 5 of 5
Casa Bella was bright, spacious, beautiful and centrally located. It was by a wide margin the nicest place we stayed in Europe during our 6 week trip, which included approximately 10 other apartments from AirBNB and HomeAway. Lucca itself is an amazing place. In addition, it is a great place to travel throughout the rest of Europe via train. The Lucca train station is very close (walking distance) to Casa Bella.

We stayed in Casa Bella with our two young children and nanny, and her husband came for a time to visit as well. Casa Bella easily accommodated all of us.

I would highly recommend Casa Bella for everyone except older folks who cannot handle a building with stairs but no elevator.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
Casa Bella was all we could have wanted. The apartment was beautiful and a little eclectically decorated. There was AC in every room which my family was very excited about as it was their first adventure in Europe and they weren't liking the weather. The beds were comfortable and the Hiuse was very clean.

The only draw back was the stairs, it's a third floor walk up. The woman who gave us the keys didn't speak English but we had hired a driver to transfer us so he was kind enough to act as a translator; there are English instructions in a binder in the house.

The location is great. It's just outside the Piazza Napoleone and close to many shops and restaurants. My brother loved that there was a pizza place basically across the street. Wi-fi was great but all 6 of us couldn't be longed on at once, but we just took turns.

We ended up arriving on "White Night" (a day in late August) and the town was absolutely crowded. I'd never see so many people, but that meant there were lots of vendors and entertainment that's not usually there. There was even a show of two women dancing while suspended from the bell towers of San Michelle. It was fabulous! If you can get there for that it's worth the crowds, plus they were totally gone the next day and it was back to quaint Tuscan town.

Overall the experience was wonderful. I would definitely stay there again if I'm in Lucca.

Also a fabulous driving company in Lucca: http://www.drivingguidetours.com/ they were able to drive us right up to the door of the apartment.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time at Casa Bella. In Italy the first floor counts as the zero floor and then the first floor is up a flight and then the second floor (Casa Bella) is up another flight, we are lucky as the stairs a comfortable climb with lovely views of the church from the landing. If you come and need help with bags we are happy to arrange it for your arrival and check out. Regarding the internet, the Italian regulation is only three people on the internet at one time per household just a bit of a quirk but glad you were all able to share the time and work it out. We hope to see you again.
