I booked the Jacopo Apartment for 28 wonderful days, out of my 6 weeks holiday and Lucca was truly the highlight of my trip. During the 1st part of my stay in Lucca, I had my family come and stay for 2 weeks. A dream come true for me, a Family Holiday in Tuscany! and Lucca, the walled city was the perfect place for this. There were 5 adults and my granddaughter (6 mo. old). There was plenty of room for all of us. The apartment was amazing, clean, exactly as stated in the listing. Excellent location, well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Vanessa even had arranged for us to have a baby crib and baby chair (hooks onto table) for my granddaughter, that was very much appreciated. The apartment was a great place to come home to after long day trips to Florence, Cinque Terre, Viareggio, a bike ride to Pisa or just exploring Lucca.
The 2nd part of my stay, was on my own, where I really felt like a local. Walking the wall everyday, sometimes bringing a book and sitting, taking the garbage to the street on garbage day, I loved that!..or just walking around Lucca, buying food at the markets and deli's, where everything is so close, literally, just around the corner.
The 3rd part of my stay, I had 3 girlfriends join me. Now, I get to play "host" and show them beautiful Lucca, Florence, etc...Vanessa kept in contact with me the whole time, making sure everything was perfect, new bedding, new towels , beach towels etc. Her map of Lucca and recommended places to eat and visit made it so easy to enjoy the best of Lucca.!
Both the train station and the bus station are an easy 15 minute walk from the apartment, that was so handy!
I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone, families, friends, girls getaways or just being by yourself. I loved my 28 days in Lucca, will never forget it and cannot wait to return...Vanessa, thank you for making my stay so wonderful!
