AIR CONDITIONED COMFORT INSIDE LUCCA'S HISTORIC WALLS

Lucca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8 (including sofa bed)

With three bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms (shower only), the flat sleeps 6-8 (using a sofa bed). This newly and completely restored, air conditioned apartment is located just inside the historic walls of Lucca, near the Porta St. Anna entrance to the city. It is on the quiet Via del Toro near the Palazzo Mansi national museum. It is also conveniently located for Via San Paolino, one of two main streets in Lucca where one can find wonderful restaurants, cinemas, food stores and shopping. This vacation apartment inside the medieval walls of Lucca provides a perfect base and is the ideal apartment rental for small groups or families traveling with children. Carlino Michele is on the mezzanine level, so it is only 14 steps up from street level. TV, cable, WiFi, VOIP phone, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer -- all the comforts of your 'home away from home'!

See what are guests have said:: 'We had a wonderful time on our trip to Lucca, and LOVED staying at Carlino Michele. It was definitely a home away from home. The apartment was the perfect size for our group of 4 adults and 2 children. We loved riding the bikes provided for us around Lucca. Our vacation was truly magical. We'd go back in a second. Jennie, Austin, TX 07/29/10

We just returned from 3 weeks in Italy with our 3 children (ages 7, 9 and 10). A definite highlight of the trip was our stay in Lucca, especially the comfort and convenience of Carlino Michele. In addition to being spacious and immaculate, Charles has outfitted the apartment with comfort and luxuries not always found in Europe, like a gigantic

king-sized bed and a dryer! Charles was a pleasure to deal with, and we felt relaxed and

recharged by the time we left Lucca. I highly recommend Lucca and Carlino Michele. Thank you, Charles! Lisa , Pleasanton, Ca 07/12/10

More Happy Guests: Our most current visit to Lucca is not our first; nor is our stay at one of Charles Duggan's apartments on via del Toro. Returning to Lucca is like going back to the old house in the 'old neighborhood.' The Carlino Michele apartment feels like home. It has absolutely everything we are used to and need to feel at ease following our daily excursions within the walls as well as our day trips to the surrounding countryside. As Charles' on-site representative, Andrea was able to assist us with any special requests, both prior to our arrival and after. He always has a smile on his face. The whole experience, from initiating the rental process to completing the transaction was, as usual, very easy and without any problems. Charles was also very accommodating with helping us when we learned we would be arriving a day earlier than originally planned. I know we will be returning to Lucca. My first priority will be to contact Charles and book one of the apartments on via del Toro. Dan and Lynne

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.

Absolutely perfect home base for family Italy trip

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a comfortable home base for a family trip to Italy, and Carlino Michele in Lucca exceeded all expectations! The apartment itself is perfectly located inside the city walls. Extremely comfortable rooms, modern amenities, the place has been completely updated - but you still feel the history and charm of staying inside a centuries old building. We stayed in the apartment for a week, and from the apartment, enjoyed day trips to Pisa (20 minutes), Florence (45 minutes), and just road-tripping through Tuscany (breathtaking!). The best part is, the city itself - Lucca - is full of life, activity, and local treats. But after every amazing day out, we truly felt like 'home' coming back to Carlino Michele.

Few pluses: the owner provides numerous bikes for touring the city - def recommend riding the city walls; in-unit washer/dryer, even had car seats in the laundry room (great for our day trips, and saved money!); and the apartment is w/in 2-5 minute walk to amazing pastry shops, cafes, trattorias, open squares.

Owner is extremely professional, responsive and assists with any pre-planning questions, recommendations, etc. We would definitely stay in Carlino Michele in Lucca again, and highly recommend to others.

Carlino Michele inside the walls of Lucca

  • 4 of 5
We spent 10 fantastic days in Italy provided by Lucca and the residence of Carlino Michele. The apartment was very accommodating for our group, even when we had 7 people, and had everything we needed for our vacation. Staying at Carlino Michele made easy to get anywhere in Lucca quickly and staying in Lucca made it easy to get to other places in Italy such as Florence, Rome, Pisa, and Cinque Terra. Access to the train, bus, rental cars, taxi and shuttle services are all within walking distance. Lucca is a fantastic town and Carlino Michele is a great apartment to stay in.

Comfortable apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5
Carlino Michele is a very comfortable apartment that sleeps 6 easily. It is well appointed - although the chipped mugs could do with replacing. The bikes are a bonus. It is very good value and I am happy to recommend.
The location is great - between Villa Mansi and Puccini's birthplace.
We ate in the local square at the French Bistro and Enoteca Calasto - different eating experiences but both good. We enjoyed visiting Villa Mansi.

Location, Comfort and space!

  • 5 of 5
This is the best apartment we have stayed in while living in Europe! The location is fabulous for touring Lucca and the surrounding cities. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had an abundance of pillows and blankets, an american style coffee maker ( not needed, but a very nice touch!) The kitchen was fully supplied with everything you would need to cook and the pantry has some much needed essentials. Four bikes come with this rental for use and we only had to rent children's bikes for our ride on the wall, an activity that everyone visiting Lucca should do.
I can't say enough good things about this apartment! The Owner was quick to respond to our interest in the apartment and the property manager was extremely helpful and met us to help us up to the apartment with our 5 kids in tow.
I can not wait to visit Lucca and rent this apartment again!

Perfect apartment in a wonderful city

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Lucca at Carlino Michele was wonderful. Charles and Andrea were helpful and very easy to work with. The apartment was exactly as described, comfortable and convenient. There were 8 of us (4 adults and 4 kids) and there was plenty of room.

The best part was being able to walk out of the apartment and around the corner to the cafe to drink espresso and eat pastries -- making sure to pet the friendly kitty on the way. Lucca was a welcoming, charming and fun city to be in over the holidays -- with easy access to surrounding areas for day trips. I truly hope to make it back someday.

Notes:
One flight up from Via del Toro, on the mezzanine level, this Lucca accommodation, Italy features a very large and open living and dining area. The space is light-filled, with three large windows that look out onto a picturesque neighborhood and the rooftops of Lucca. The dining room table is perfect for four in the closed position and can accommodate eight comfortably when it is extended. There are two leather sofas in the living area (one is a full-size sofa bed) and an entertainment centre with TV and DVD. The kitchen area is compact but a delight. It's fully equipped with pots, pans, all serving and cooking utensils and features all new appliances, including a dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, microwave and refrigerator. The master bedroom is located in a very large space that easily accommodates the double bed as well as armoire, dresser and very comfortable seating area. The second bedroom is very comfortably furnished with twin beds. The third bedroom is bunkbeds.
