Comfortable, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Apartment Emma is a perfect home base from which to explore Tuscany. Its a short 5 minute walk to get within the city walls of Lucca and easy driving (or train) access to Pisa, Florence, the Cinque Terre or other delightful towns in the area. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and so convenient for a family. We enjoyed the ability to make breakfast (the kitchen is well equipped) or have a snack without having to always frequent a restaurant. Also appreciated the washer to do laundry onsite as we arrived after 5 days elsewhere in Italy!

The apartment owners are very responsive to any issues that may occur. Thank you also Renata for the wonderful cake and bottle of wine- was very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed them. We would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to explore Lucca and the surrounding area.

Excellent stay !

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Apartment Emma. Perfect location just outside the walled city nearby the bus and train stations. On arrival Renata greeted us with a lovely lemon cake and a bottle of wine. Maps and restaurant recommendations and bus timetables all supplied. The decor was beautiful and the kitchen had everything you need, also very handy having two shower rooms. Lucca was a lovely town and a good location for day trips to Florence, Pisa etc. Renata was a great host and very helpful indeed. Would recommend this property and would love to return some day 😀?

Beautiful apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, stylish and very comfortable apartment facing Lucca's wall. Perfect for a short break in the city, feels like a home from home. Close to a supermarket, close to all the city has to offer and the train station where it's easy to do day trips to Florence and Pisa.

Communication with the owner Renata was excellent with regards to booking and pre arrival details, we were given a wonderful welcome with homemade cake and wine. She gave us all the information about the city and made reservations at a great restaurant for us for the first night. Look forward to returning and perhaps booking tickets for the music festival next time. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Great stay with a real personal touch from the owner.

Lucca's Best Just Beyond the Wall

  • 5 of 5

This third floor flat right across the street from Lucca's famous city walls just about had it all. With excellent wi-fi and plenty of room for a two bedroom space, it certainly satisfied our needs. It has great air conditioning and is within walking distance to both the bus and train station. It is reasonably priced, with a fully equipped kitchen and owner response to any issue was excellent. We very much appreciated the homemade cake and bottle of wine from the family estate. All told it was a great find.

Perfect spot for Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, had very comfortable beds and sofas, great wi-fi and a well-equipped kitchen. Renata was wonderful, even leaving us a delicious apple tart and smooth white wine from her own vineyard. She and a friend helped us with our luggage up and down the stairs. There are 60 steps, but Italy is about steps, hills, and walking. I never felt guilty about enjoying those daily gelatos. We walked the tree lined wall several times and loved those times....great views from there. The traffic can be noisy in the front bedroom and the dogs sometimes barking in the back one, but we just closed the windows and turned on the fans in the air-conditioner and all was fine. The best part was the location. It was very near the beautiful wall with the lovely walk around the old city and also near the supermarket and Avis car rental. If inside the city, you would be far away from these last two places. We rented a car and drove to the hill town of Volterra and loved the breathtaking views up there. Another activity we enjoyed, actually going twice, was the opera music of Puccini in the San Giovanni Church. You will love Lucca.

Beautiful and lush comfort in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and made Lucca our home base. Appartamento Emma could not have been more perfect; it was very comfortable, welcoming, and never skimped on amenities for our comfort. Named after the family dog, the apartment offers a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and three legitimate sleeping rooms. You could definitely sleep six here.

Renata welcomed us with a gift of homemade lemon cake and wine from her family vineyard. What a classy touch! She offered many suggestions and advice regarding activities, resources and meals. Everything was wonderful! Take a bicycle ride along Lucca's wall for a postcard-worthy experience.

Tip: there are four floors to climb but I've definitely improved my cardio on this trip!
