This apartment's enviable location makes it ideal for exploring all that Lucca has to offer. Since it is located in the physical center of the historic center, all of Lucca is no more than a few minutes away on foot. From here you can explore the amazing boutique shops that line Via Santa Croce and nearby Via Fillungo, visit the city's museums, theaters and concert halls, eat at any of the dozens of excellent local restaurants, and, of course, go for a leisurely stroll on the city's astonishing (and enormous) city walls. Being flat, Lucca is very bike-friendly and bikes (and pedal-cars) are inexpensive to rent for the day at any of a number of local shops.

Beautiful comfortable ,quiet historic apartment full of character in the heart of historic Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely 3rd floor apartment, with lift .. Well equipped, comfortable and met our needs and expectations, second bedroom a little small but nothing to concern us.

The position is ideal being tucked away in a quiet courtyard just off one of the bustling streets in the centre of this historic town. Shops, restaurants all just round the corner, Lovely walks round the walls.Excellent recommendations from Vanessa on shops and restaurants and bakeries etc. Wonderful weather and very relaxing what more can one ask for a lovely holiday.

This Apartment is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Stunning Apartment is an accurate description!

  • 5 of 5

Who needs a 5 star hotel when you can get a beautiful apartment inside the walls of Lucca. This place was everything we hoped it would be. It was clean, well furnished with comfortable beds and the air conditioner worked great. You have to see it to truly appreciate it.

You can't get a much better location to tour the Northern Tuscany area. We visited Pisa, Cinque Terre, Viareggio and of course Lucca. We traveled by car, but it is a short walk to the train station from the apartment. Parking was not a problem in that there were many free and reasonably priced options.

Vanessa, our host, was fantastic. She communicated with us both before and during our stay and she was there to meet us when we arrived. She provided us with great travel information and her restaurant recommendations were spot on (Da Pasquale and Ristorante Giglio were our favorites).

I never write reviews but I felt that the quality of the property and the superior hospitality provided by Vanessa warranted sharing our experience.

Absolutely matched our needs perfectly because of its central location and internal courtyard

  • 4 of 5

Talk about going back in time! My goodness, it was stunningly ancient and all the more valuable to us because of that. I had expectations of Frette bed linen and so on which was, frankly, ridiculous and IKEA sufficed for our stay. The stairs can be challenging if the lift (elevator) is full so please be aware of that. However, it's on the stairs and in the courtyard that you meet the residents and that represented another wonderful surprise and would make me want to return. It's possible one or two may come to Ireland since our encounters and I would love that. Vanessa is the epitome of kindness, humility and professionalism. We wanted her to come back with us to Ireland also but why would anyone want to leave Lucca or Italy. Ridiculous suggestion! The fact that we could walk everywhere was such a bonus and Vanessa's list of restaurants, and trattorie was perfect. We went everywhere she recommended and were thrilled. The kitchen is down a few steps as is the small bedroom with 2 single beds so, again, for anyone less active that might be a little challenging. Just so you're aware. There is nothing more to add except please pass on my very best wishes to Vanessa if and when you meet her and I hope you have the time of your life in Lucca.

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental for 5 days with friends. The house was warm, inviting, and very well appointed. Everything we needed was there, including some things we didn't expect, like basic condiments for cooking, and tons of travel maps with suggestiong on sites in the area. The two bedrooms are very different, one large loft with bathroom, and one very small bedroom with a bath very nearby. Very comfortable in every way. The hostess, Vanessa, was over-the-top helpful and kind to us, even meeting us at the gate of the walled city, where we had to park our car, and walking us right to the apartment. This was a great stay, and we were all sad to leave the place. We'll be back!

The walks around the top of the wall were stunningly beautiful, and the shopping and dining in the little city were extremely enjoyable.....

Lucca is also the perfect city to explore all of Tuscany. Lucca uniquely combines an important mix of ingredients that we believe you'll find nowhere else in Tuscany. Its location is perfect for exploration: 30 minutes from the Leaning Tower and Pisa International, 20 minutes from the beaches of Viareggio, 45 minutes from the mountains, 60 minutes by train to Florence, and an easy 1-2 hour drive to Siena, Volterra, and the rest of Tuscany.
