About Luca Volpe

Owner: Charlie Hines, A 30-year Executive Hotel With Loews, Marriott, And Ritz Carlton.

International Liason Director:

Luca Volpe, Lawyer.

Luca Volpe purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Luca Volpe chose Palm Springs

This apartment is part of Residenza San Lorenzo which offers a unique and exclusive community for a special few.

This recently renovated resort/rental apartment complex features 'hotel like' amenities and services. Among these are: poolside and courtyard terraces, private patios and yards, concierge services, pool/spa services, covered parking and more.

The project was developed by Charlie Hines, a hotel executive, and Luca Volpe, from Torino, Italy. Mr. Volpe, general manager, is charged with the implementation of all services and the day to day operations.

Luca, no stranger to the 'service business', grew up in his family's restaurant and bar business in Torino. Luca is genuinely excited about delivering true Italian hospitality and service to 'his guests'.

Luca also directed special programs for the resort, including Italian classes featuring the language, the culture, the arts and, most importantly, 'the food', he is an amazing cook! Mr. Volpe holds a degree in art and a JD in law.

Besides Italian, Luca is fluent in Spanish and English...Perfect for delivering the stated goals. This enriched community setting will provide a great opportunity for the retired, or soon to be retired, or for the individual looking for a 'home away from home' in a world class resort destination. The complex is small enough (8 units) so that our guests have privacy and yet be part of an exclusive group.

Apartment 6 is the last one available. Do not miss it.

What makes this apartment unique

The ambiance is very unique, the clothing optional pool and spa with a great mountain views that are breathtaking. Even if we have a predominately gay clientele, we welcome everyone.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
Every aspect of this resort was perfect, Luca and the team were amazing helped with the area, suggested spots, lovely welcome above and beyond what you expect from a sc apartment stay. The actual apartment was spotless with brilliant amenities and a very thoughtful welcome basket on arrival. The communal areas are lovely and tranquil again well maintained. The restaurants/centre were within a comfortable walking distance or cheap taxi.
Well recommended 5*

A Zen-like paradise

  • 5 of 5
I spent six weeks at Residenza San Lorenzo this past winter. I had wanted a place I could call home for the extended period of time I was staying - a place close to the heart of Palm Springs and one that exuded a retreat-like ambience to escape to when I needed my solitude. This was THE place.

The property is a meticulously well-maintained Zen-like paradise...tucked against the raw backdrop of the San Jacinto mountains. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, just south of downtown and easily accessible to restaurants, clubs, shopping and downtown attractions by foot or public transit. I had not wanted to rent a car during my stay and the 18-20 minute walk to the heart of downtown or to shop for groceries at Ralph's on Ramon and Sunshine gave me my regular exercise and was easily manageable, despite my chronic lower-back issues. An occasional taxi ride home cost about $7.50.

Both Luca and Scott arranged for me to be picked up at the airport upon my arrival and provided a warm reception and orientation to the property and the Palm Springs area. Spacious and airy, the unit came equipped with all the essentials and Luca would check-in regularly throughout my stay to ensure I felt comfortable. The consistent desert sunshine offered me a daily invitation to relax on the private covered terrace with my morning coffee, and early evening brought me out once again with my glass of wine, the colored lights of the pool and spa adding a soft, ambient tone as night settled.

There is a sense of community at RSL. Neighbors were warm and friendly yet in no way intrusive. I was genuinely welcomed and was offered helpful suggestions from time to as needed. Several of the full-time residents were at work during the day. At times I felt like I had the whole property to myself!


Grab this place if it's available...a real find and an absolute delight. I've already put pennies into the piggy bank for a return trip next year!

Paradise in the heart of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5
On the spur of the moment, we decided we could spare a few days to jaunt over to Palm Springs (our favorite getaway). We quickly scoured VRBO to look for the perfect spot that still had availability. We knew we wanted to be super close to downtown and wanted a nicely decorated place that would accept our two "perfectly behaved" Bichon Frise doggies. We also wanted a quite and safe neighborhood, nice for strolling. We fell in love with the pictures and description and there just happened to be an open week (miracle). The owner, Luca, called us immediately and warmly welcomed us. The logistics of the stay were handled effortlessly and fast. Upon arrival, we were delighted with the care that was taken in the design of this space. The furniture, towels, monogrammed robes, and kitchen amenities took into mind everything we needed and loved (especially the cocktail shaker, ice bucket and wine glasses). Scott, the property manager, is a great ambassador for Luca and the property. He not only welcomed us and ensured we were settled in, but also happily took time to make some calls and find us a place downtown where we could rent some bikes. We visited our favorite restaurants, hit our favorite thrift stores, did some sightseeing and had a blast. Surprisingly, we opted for spending most of our time "at home" relaxing, hanging in the Jacuzzi and enjoying some home cooked meals in our very own tropical paradise (private backyard garden). The comfortable and fashionable furniture, immaculate landscaping, mature trees and shrubs and crystal clear pool made outdoor living an extension of the inside. The complex is secure and private and the neighbors respect your privacy, or are glad to chat if you want to. Although all the units were full, we felt like had our own private resort. My wife and I feel fortunate that we found Residenza San Lorenzo. Having stayed in many 4-5 star hotels in Palm Springs, we have now found our home away from home and will be back as often as we can. Thank you Luca and Scott for an experience to remember.

The pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5
Do not worry about the clothing optional thing, no nudity seen at all. We were well taken care of. Luca pays attention to the details and was available every morning in case we needed anything. They do it right. The place was well maintained and the garden manicured. The pools were crystal clear. A nice, quiet, small complex. We were allowed to bring our dog and even though he was not allowed in the garden, the neighborhood is good for walking, even at night. The neighbors in the complex were really nice but not around constantly. We were impressed by the quality of musicians playing locally. We especially enjoyed Woody's Burgers for the jazz, burgers and milkshakes.

Fabulous Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about Luca, Charlie and Residenza San Lorenzo! The location is ideal - just a short walk to the main hub of action in Palm Springs. The apartment is lovely - roomy, bright and comfortable. The pool/patio area is sublime! Beautifully maintained, perfectly decorated - a real resort! We also loved our neighbours and their guests - it really felt like home.
We were there over Christmas break and New Years. Luca went above and beyond to accommodate us for a few extra days when we initially booked, and gave us a discount when our arriving flight in was delayed by 1.5 days. Charlie and Luca provided a warm welcome when we arrived and a thoughtful gift basket with a few essentials. The lime squeezer Luca dropped off on our second day allowed us to make perfect margaritas! Our only fear is that RSL will become so popular we won't be able to book back in when we need to! We highly recommend it for a short or long visit. You won't be disappointed.
Perfect Margarita Recipe
3/4 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice, 1 tsp sugar, 1/4 oz Triple Sec, 1 oz water, 1 3/4 oz Gold Tequila. Mix together and pour into a glass filled with ice. Sit by the pool, relax and enjoy!

November in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5
I spent the month of November at the property owned by Luca and Charlie. I had a very enjoyable time. Luca was thoughtful and considerate. He regularly check to make sure all was well. The complex is small and well maintained. I would highly recommend the guest house for adult males.
