It doesn't get more central than this!

Each apartment features TV, WiFi, refrigerator, cooktop, new cookware, and all dishes and utensils.

                                                      We stayed in the small apartment and it was great. Vanessa was very responsive and super helpful. It's the perfect size for a couple. The apartment is in an awesome location in the middle of Lucca. No more than a 10 minute walk anywhere inside the walls and only 10 minutes down to the train station.

                                                      Lucca is a great alternative to stay compared to Florence. We arrived not intending to spend much time at all in Lucca but ended spending a day and a half of our 4 days wandering around town and enjoying the culture. We're very glad we stumbled upon it while looking for places as we loved the town!

                                                      So glad you guys had such a good time in lovely Lucca! It was a pleasure to host you and you're quite welcome back any time!

                                                      Great location in the middle of everything!

                                                      Loved the location close to shops and restaurants. The only negative issue was dealing with parking since no cars are allowed inside the city walls. The apartment was comfortable and had all the basics.

                                                      Hi Betty, glad you guys enjoyed your stay! The parking issue is addressed in the listing and we discussed it before booking as well. It's part of what makes Lucca wonderful - it's mostly car-free in the city center, and we're in the pedestrian area, which is (in my opinion) even better. Happy to have hosted you!

                                                      Great Place, Great Location, Great Host

                                                      tony p.

                                                      We stayed 4 nights at the apartment for 5 people. The apartment was ideal for 5 people in a good location within Lucca. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with good facilities- kitchen and laundry with 2 bathrooms which was very much appreciated - and it was quite sizable and also had quite a bit of character. It was a short walk from parking (as you cannot drive to the door of the apartment because it is in the ZTL zone)-- about 5 minutes walk- not inconvenient as it gave you an opportunity to explore and get the feeling of the city . Vanessa the host was wonderful. She took a lot of time explaining the place, where things were and how to operate things. She was very accessible and communicated efficiently both before when making arrangements as well as during our stay. I would highly recommend especially for a family group.

                                                      What a lovely apartment and town. The apartment is perfectly located towards the center of the walled city and everything is an easy 5-10 minute walk. Vanessa just makes everything so easy while staying in Lucca. All her recommended places to eat are top notch and well vetted- stay with these and you’ll be guaranteed to enjoy the best that Lucca has to offer. The apartment is very well stocked with all the comforts of home and is a lovely place to just relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. We enjoyed our 6 nights in Lucca and hope to return one day.

                                                      We were very happy arriving and leaving

                                                      BILL P.

                                                      We began our adventure on a Sunny Saturday in September--we we're three adults and we met up with Vanessa at the train station and she led us

                                                      to the very nice and comfortable apartment. Perfect --two bedrooms--two full baths--

                                                      working kitchen and stocked with the implements to cook.

                                                      We arrived on the Saturday of the annual Festival Parade--it was great to see

                                                      a happy city enjoying a festive moment with all participating...

                                                      We knew everything would work out from prior reviews...when we booked the room in 12/2013 for our Lucca adventure we put our host to the test:

                                                      ask her questions and see how fast she can responds in English. Every correspondence from Lucca was immediate and accurate and helpful.

                                                      All of her suggestions for a needed pharmacy, the best fruit store, the restaurants to go--and have reservations made for us--Vanessa delivered.

                                                      We also wanted to go on a day trip by car and her directions and suggestions

                                                      were extremely helpful--we followed them and had a memorable day in the

                                                      outskirts of Lucca.

                                                      Lucca is a very interesting city and the location of the apartment was the envy

                                                      of others who watched us make our turn into the courtyard. You are certainly

                                                      in Lucca living the Lucca lifestyle of jostling with tourists and watching the locals.

                                                      Staying 8 nights we went for morning walks to watch the children off to school

                                                      as we made our rounds of bakery and grocers. Everything is within 10 minutes

                                                      of one another within the walls of the old city.

                                                      Walking the ramparts and watching the people a daily pleasure. The botanical garden a garden of Eden. The local Contemporary Art Museum something to do.

                                                      Lucca is a beautiful bustling city and the apartment is just what one would want

                                                      to vicariously wonder what would it be like to live in such a place.

                                                      As host Vanessa could not have provided a cleaner nicer place to be--

                                                      we were only 3-- a couple and a friend--but the place had sleeping lofts for more--any questions anyone interested in staying there will be answered honestly and accurately. Any recommendations in our experience can be accepted with the fullest confidence.

                                                      We loved the place.

                                                      Location

                                                      Lucca, Province of Lucca, Italy

                                                      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 the main streets of town, 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. 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.
