WONDERFUL, WELL-APPOINTED RETREAT IN LUCCA'S HEART

Wonderful, well-appointed retreat in Lucca's heart
  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved staying in this apartment! The location is great, being in the center of Lucca; everything is a short walk away, even the train station. Paolo is very thoughtful, providing many extras that we don't normally expect in a vacation rental - maps, tips, detailed "stuff to know" about the appliances. The Internet was great, and we enjoyed being able to watch several World Cup games on the satellite TV. All fixtures & appliances are modern, and the hide-a-bed is comfortable.

Paolo is easy to work with - very friendly personality, speaking very good English, and very responsive to email questions. He is obviously & rightfully proud of this apartment.

Of course, every place has some downsides, so just be aware that there is some street noise due to the location; the windows are good but don't seal it all out. As you can expect, there are stairs to apartment - so if you have a hard time with stairs, look elsewhere. The beds are on the hard side, but this is typical for Europe - none of the places in which we stayed had what we Americans would call "soft" beds.

Overall, highly recommended - we stayed in five different Italy lodgings, and the family agreed that this one was our favorite!

PERFECTION WITH PUCCINI

  • 5 of 5
Paolo's Santa Croce apartment in the heart of Lucca really is perfection. We stayed 10 nights, part of a 3 month visit to bella Italia (our 9th and always in apartments) This beautiful apartment would be one of the loveliest we have stayed in.
My correspondence with Paolo from Australia was always answered promptly and efficiently. Our meeting with him on arrival was ideal and his generosity with such a wonderful selection of wine, food and flowers was overwhelming.Grazie mille.
The apartment was spotless, extremely well equipped with small details always considered. The linen was excellent, plenty of towels and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was ideal and very clean.
It felt very spacious to live in, full of light, very tastefully decorated and we looked forward to coming home every day, often returning for lunch.
I would recommend Paolo's apartment very highly, .The location could not be better. Paolo is a very considerate,, obliging and very friendly host, a pleasure to meet.
As for Lucca, our 3rd visit, each visit brings something new and wonderful. My highlight was simply cycling around those magnificent walls.
Dont miss a trip to Bagni de Lucca and Palazzo Pfanner with the most magnificent gardens (inside the walls)
Esselunga supermarket is just a stroll away
Cant wait to return

SURPASSED EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
This charming little apartment in the heart of Lucca was wonderful. Email communication with Paolo beforehand was easy and he was very good about responding promptly and answering all my questions. As promised, he came to meet us at the train station and show us "home". The apartment is beautifully appointed, EXTREMELY clean (and I am very picky!), and so very cute! Paolo has thought of everything a traveller might need that they couldn't/didn't bring along. He also went above and beyond, wth fresh roses on the table, something to eat on our first night there, milk in the fridge and coffee. He is a very kind, honest and straightforward person. The location is superb to explore Lucca and within walking access to the bus and train stations for exploring other towns, as we did. Hands down, this was the best place we stayed on our trip and the only bad thing I can say is that we had to leave! Do not hesitate to stay here: you won't regret it.

COZY AND CALMING APPARTEMENT IN THE CITY CENTER

  • 5 of 5
Paolo's apartment was the perfect place for our trip to Lucca. It is located in the heart of the city but still it is not noisy. The apartment has got everything you need and a little bit more - ranging from air condition, TV and DVD to white wine and pasta. The rooms are very clean and nice furnished with even Florentine mosaic in the bathroom. Paolo is very nice and also provides a leaflet with all information you need.

BENE

  • 5 of 5
Paulo's apartment was the perfect place for us to stay during our visit to Lucca! It was nicely decorated, with color and brightness. The view from our eating area was nice, looking out over rooftops. The bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of space in the bathroom.
Paulo was a most gracious host,and went above and beyond to assure our stay was pleasant! Good location, interesting street below with all the sites and fun of Lucca close by! Grazie, Paulo!
