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.

One of the highlights of our trip!

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 7 - 3 kids and 4 adults. We had such a wonderful stay in this apartment and Lucca in general. The apartment was spacious and had everything you could need. Nancy was so helpful - she even helped us find a Dr. to make a house call when my mother was sick. What a charming place to stay, this was definitely a highlight of our trip!

I must say that this apartment lived up to all of the reviews. It has a good location, it is spacious, a blend of old and new, tall ceilings, beautiful tile floors, comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms, and it fills with sunshine. You feel like you are living in a very historic building. We loved it!!! Nancy makes your planning so easy and she even suggests restaurants for you. Lucca has so much to offer. We do hope to return. When we do, we hope that Casa Bella will be available for us to rent.

Perfect Retreat with Convenience At the Front Door

  • 5 of 5
With a gelato shop at one end of the short street and a bakery at the other, Casa Bella has the perfect location in Lucca. A short walk to the wall, to the many shops, churches, a reasonably priced parking lot, the use of the bikes throughout the city, and most of all the fabulous eateries made our stay exceptional. An unexpected highlight was a Puccini aria recital which occurs 360 days a year and the two professional musician husbands wanted to go again. Alas our time was too short and although the side trips to Cinque Terra, Sienna, and Pisa were fun, no city compared to the warmth of the people of Lucca. We definitely hope to return and highly recommend this wonderful apartment. Judy C. Massachusetts

Veramente Bella

  • 5 of 5
Ten wonderful days flew by at Casa Bella. The six of us settled right in, enjoying the spacious and tastefully decorated home. (One if the first vacation homes where I didn't want to redecorate!) Lucca is a wonderful location, many great destinations are nearby...the problem was, I never wanted to leave! I would reluctantly get out of my cozy bed, where I would enjoy the view of the spectacular chandelier above me,(just one of many), listening to the sounds of the town coming alive through the charming open windows. From there I would pad my way out to the kitchen on amazing floor tiles that decoratively define each room...such a treat. We enjoyed preparing several meals made from our purchases at the great nearby markets. The dining room table easily accommodates 8 people.

The shopping is outstanding, so many stores, you are never bored, and yet everything is within walking distance.

We rode bikes to the store and on the wall, had a crazy amount of good food at the countless cafes and restaurants and then of course, had more gelato than we should have. But between walking and stairclimbing, (only 43, by the way), no worries! Even my 83 year old was up and down several times a day.

Hope you enjoy yourselves as much as we did.

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived hot and tired, having driven from Lake Maggiore. We called to let Ina and Lydia know we were in Lucca at the parking lot just outside of the walls and Lydia walked in the hot sun all to get us. What a sweet lady!
The apartment does not disappoint. It is just like the pictures and in a perfect location. We were able to drive our car within a few steps of the front door to unload the luggage and then we drove it back outside of the city walls.
It is perfect for a large family or even several sets of friends. It was just my husband and I so the space was terrific but we only used the one master bedroom. The kitchen is well equiped although I didn't really cook much....mainly breakfast and light dinners.
Bathrooms are modern and one has a shower and the other a tub.

One of the highlights of our stay was using the bikes that are privided with the apartment, to ride around the city and around the paths that surround the city. It was really lovely in the evenings. An absolute 'must'.
We had a terrific time and hope to return.
Highly recommend staying here instead of staying in a hotel.

Lovely Lucca

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week at this home in spring 2012. It was so lovely to be able to come HOME after a long day of touring Tuscany; or, just to relax and regroup after enjoying Lucca. Lucca is a perfect, central location for exploring Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre and many other Tuscan towns. The home was spacious, clean and comfortable. While it could get a bit noisy on weekend evenings due to the comings and goings of folks from the local cinema, it was otherwise quite serene. Nothing ear plugs couldn't handle, however. We rarely heard neighbors. The home, itself, is an appealing blend of Old Europe and modern living. Beautiful original flooring, doors and ceilings give you the feel of old Italy. Modern conveniences and family photos give you the comfort of home. Nancy was extrememly responsive to emails and we were met as arranged upon arrival. While we didn't take advantage of the bicycles provided, they looked great and are a lovely benefit to staying at this beautiful home. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay to anyone - unless stairs are a problem for you - as there are a few steps to conquer before you reach the front door.

Just walk out the front door and 2000 years of history will delight you as you discover Lucca’s beautiful piazza's and streets. It is home to splendid Romanesque churches, museums, monuments, and the birth place of Giacomo Puccini (1858) one of Italy's most famous composers.

During the summer Lucca welcomes some of the most famous singers of the world for the “Summer Festival”’s concerts, held in the major square of the town.

Going out of the city, the splendid hills and country side of Lucca are perfect for those who are seeking peace and rest. Wonderful old farm houses, historical villas and restaurants, lovingly restored and adapted for contemporary needs, will welcome you, your family and friends, during your vacation!

Amusements are endless; Trekking, bicycling, horse riding and every kind of entertainment are possible. The lovely sandy beaches of the Versilia coast line, are only 20 mins away, famous for the beautiful “Bagni” (beach clubs), and the sparkling night life
