ROMANTIC 2BR 2BA APT W/IN HEART OF LUCCA'S WALLS. FREE WIFI

Lucca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

CASA CENAMI is ideally located in the heart of Lucca's historic center. Step outside the front door and in less than a minute you're sipping a cappuccino in Piazza San Michele, window shopping on the stylish Via Fillungo, sipping wine in the 2nd century BC anfiteatro, listening to nightly operatic arias, gazing at the striking golden mosaic facade of San Frediano, photographing panoramics atop the Guinigi tower, delighting in the tastes of the countless wonderful Lucca restaurants, or taking an afternoon stroll, bike ride or jog around the 16th century walls encircling Lucca's centro storico. At the end of the day, return to the comfort of Casa Cenami where the thick walls keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.

Our flat is a two level apartment on the 2nd floor of an historic, well-cared for building. All the charm of past centuries: beamed ceilings; hand-crafted Lucca floor tiles that have been maintained but coupled with modern comfort and convenience. We provide free wireless so you can share your experiences with friends and family back home. An additional bathroom w/shower was added upstairs in 2011 to allow a bathroom & shower for each main bedroom. The apartment is ideal for 2 couples. A gourmet, fully equipped gas stove kitchen allows you to try out local produce and products. The two bedrooms both have a queen size beds and a small twin bed is off the upstairs bedroom. Antiques we purchased from Lucca's monthly antiques market outside our front door adorn the space but comfy couches allow for quiet afternoon naps. There's a washing machine, iron & ironing board upstairs. All linens and towels are provided. Plus we provide 2 bicycles to explore the ally ways and walls of Lucca.

CASA CENAMI allows for endless day trips. Catch the train, bus or drive to coastal Cinque Terre, the leaning tower of Pisa, the marble mining mecca of Pietrasanta, the palio horse races in Siena or other Tuscan hillside towns, miles of wine and olive oil routes and Florence is only 45 min drive away.

Getting to Lucca is easy. Fly direct from USA to Pisa. Catch a 25 min bus that goes direct from Pisa airport to inside the walls of Lucca. Then within a 5 min walk, you're home. Or fly into Florence and catch the bus or train to Lucca - transport here is easy.

Check out two Lucca iPhone apps: 'Enjoy Lucca' or 'The Tuscan Magazine'. Both available for download on iPhone and iPad.

I am a filmmaker and Karen is an award-winning photographer. Her photographs from around the world hang on our walls. Both of us use Casa Cenami as a getaway, a place to think, write, relax and get rejuvenated.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Lucca is the ideal location. We can fly into Pisa and in 30 minutes by bus we're in Lucca. Or we can take the train or drive to Florence in under an hour. Public transport gives us access to the famous Cinque Terre region, medieval Sienna & other Tuscan hill towns, sunbathing on the Mediterranean coast, or skiing and it's all within a hour or two.

When we're in Lucca, we love to go on wine and olive oil tours & tastings, dine al fresco in one of the many fantastic Lucca restaurants, pick up fresh porcini mushrooms or truffles with hand-made pasta to cook at home or check out the stalls at the monthly art market outside our front door. There's always a concert going on in one of the piazzas or churches plus art & photo exhibitions. And beyond that, just strolling the ancient walls always brings a serenity to the day.

Great location and ammenities

We very much enjoy our stay in Lucca. This apartment was well equipped and located right in the heart of the old town. Upon arrival we were provided with many suggestions on what to do, where to eat and to purchase groceries, etc. The restaurant suggestions were excellent and we so enjoyed the walk around the town walls. The apartment was large and comfortable. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Great for a family

  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
The apartment was fantastic for a family of five. It was great having the two bathrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped. The whole apartment was tastefully decorated and had added extras like the two bikes that were greatly utilised and lots of information about day trips and local sights. We felt comfortable and safe allowing our 11 and 14 year old boys ride around and within the walls. We enjoyed the proximity to the train station and did day trips to Florence and the Cinque Terra and drove to the Garfagnana area. The tips given on arrival were fantastic. We loved the recommended restaurants. Be careful of the drying rack, we accidentally broke two wine glasses :( but what a great place to stay we would highly recommend staying at Casa Cenami

Casa Cenami

  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Our apartment was perfect for a Luchessi experience! The location was perfect for nearby breakfast treats, the pizzeria downstairs was wonderful. Close by is Via Fillungo for fabulous shops. We of course walked every where. The apartments's beds were amazingly comfortable, we were two couples traveling and had just enough room. Eva was beyond wonderful as our concierge. I highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Lucca!

Wonderful Apartment in the Perfect Location

  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
This lovely apartment was light, beautifully decorated, very clean, spacious, remodeled with modern kitchen and bathrooms, and worked out just perfectly for us (a couple with small child and mother-in-law) for our 5-day stay in Lucca. It is an ideal location in the center of the walled city, just a short walk from the city's central piazzas. I just can't imagine a better location within the city. It has two extremely nice bedrooms (one upstairs, one down) and a small additional room with twin bed perfect for a child just off the master bedroom upstairs. The main living area downstairs was open, light and sufficiently spacious. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (no elevator) and most rooms face a courtyard so they are quiet although the downstairs bedroom faces the street so there was some street noise late at night in that room from the cafe down below. The owners and manager were extremely responsive and provided all the information we needed. There is no cable access for the TV which is a minor downside but didn't bother us. If you arrive in Lucca with a car, you are able to drop suitcases off very close to the apartment and then we parked just outside the city which has affordable parking. We would absolutely stay in this apartment again on a future trip to Lucca and recommend it highly. We feel so lucky that this listing was available for our trip dates.

Great apartment in heart of Lucca

  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We stayed here with another couple. Lucca was a wonderful little town to explore from this location. We were steps away from bakeries, green grocers, restaurants and shops. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos and the apartment manager is the nicest person--so helpful and enthusiastic. The kitchen was wonderfully appointed. The only weakness is the downstairs bathroom, which is quite small. We rode the train to Florence one day, and to Cinque Terra another.
