What makes this Apartment unique
When my clients arrive they say that they feel at home. I am referring to my apartment before the total renovation. I suppose they will feel at home also now, after the renovation. I like helping people, coming from all over the world, to spend their holidays in Italy by offering them holiday accommodation and interesting and fun things to do, i.e. a , cultural or gastronomical tour, Italian lessons, cooking or painting courses or anything else they might want to do during their stay in my apartment.

Loved staying here. Only one flight of stairs up to the apartment. Very clean and excellent facilities. The owner Thommaso met us at the train station on arrival and drove us to the apartment, showed us around. Also he picked us up at the end of our stay and drove us back to the train station. Thommaso is a friendly and gracious man, we can highly recommend his apartment.
A perfect getaway
The apt was as pictured. The only surprise was the breakfast and bottle of wine that tomasso left us. He also picked us up at the train station when we arrived...the perfect host. Great location with restaurants,sights within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
Lucca's charm just outside your door
Well-appointed apartment located near Piazza San Francisco. Very clean, spacious, and lots of character. Mr. de Masi was very helpful in giving us tips and advice in our stay in Lucca. We were so smitten, we extended our rental. The street can be a little noisy in the morning due to traffic, but it didn't matter to us at all. We could not have asked for a better introduction to the city by staying here, and there are lots of restaurants, shops, and bicycle rentals just a few blocks away. I would highly reccommend this property for your stay.
Thanks for your considerations and emotions. I appreciated them.
You were like a photographer and I do hope that future clients could immagine how the town
of Lucca and my apartment are.
I hope to meet you again, why not for the Carnival parades in Viareggio.
Meraviglioso means Marvellous
I have recently spent the month of July 2016 in the beautiful walled town of Lucca making Tommaso's apartment my home. Delightfully presented, the apartment is very clean with every comfort and convenience. Positioned one level above the street it is private with plenty of space and large windows in each room. Being close to both Piazza Santa Maria and Piazza San Francesco provides plenty of facilities such as small traders, bars and restaurants. The bus stop for the Rosso bus line is just across the street and Centro is only a short distance away. Good quality bikes are available for hire at Piazza Santa Maria.
Tommaso met me when I arrived and took me to the apartment. He drove me to the station when I departed. Tommaso attends to the needs of his guests in a considerate and kind manner. Thanks Tommaso. All was "perfetto" !!!!

grazie delle belle parole sul mio appartamento. Spero che il ricordo del viaggio a Lucca rimanga per molto nella tua mente e che col tempo, quando comincerà ad affievolirsi, ti spinga a ritornare nel nostro paese. Io anzi noi (assieme a Arianna) siamo qui pronti a darti un aiuto , anche se la scelta dovesse cadere non sulla nostra città o sul mio appartamento.
Sei stata un ospite gentile, dolce e comprensiva. Noi speriamo un giorno di poterti incontrare di nuovo.
Un grosso augurio per tutti i tuoi progetti futuri e ancora un grazie.
P.S. The reason why my reply is in Italian ? Because I am sure of your understanding and I wanted to give you the possibility to exercize again our Language. Take care!
Wonderful Apartment in the heart of Lucca
Large, clean apartment in a great location. The apartment had everything needed for a great stay. The owner, Tommaso, met us at the appointed time and helped us to find the garage parking he had arranged for us as well as helped us carry our luggage. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was stocked with all the tool needed to cook. I was especially grateful that there were two cupboards left empty for us to place our food purchases for the two weeks we were there. The WIFI worked great as did the cable and air conditioning. The beds were very comfortable and the shower had good pressure and temperature. We were sorry we had to leave. Thank you Tommaso, we hope to be back!
Thanks for having chosen my apartment in Lucca and I do hope to accommodate you or your friends in the next future, why not also in my apartment in Pietrasanta, the town of artists also called the "Little Athens".
I do not know when you'll be back in your country: certainly you will take good remembering of your trip, not only in Italy, good food etc.
I wish you the best.

Before contacting me the first time may-be you spent several days trawling the internet, searching for a special apartment in Lucca. It was an excruciating exercice being costantly sidetracked by attractive prices based on suspicious photos, ambiguous descriptions and uncertain locations.
I am happy to hear from my clients, when they arrive, that my apoartment is exactly the same of the photos.
Now that your trip to Lucca is finally made, it is nice to hear of your positive words on my apartment and also about my person. Thank you!
I hope to meet you again in future and I hope you will recommend my apartment in Lucca to your friends!
The apartment is at the first floor (not ground floor) and it offers a very good quality standard.
It has been recently new-renovated without losing its original character (terracotta floors, timber beamed ceiling, etc.
The spacious sitting – kitchen looks onto Via della Zecca and has a sofa, armchairs, TV and internet connection . The kitchen with dining area is completely equipped. Both the large peaceful double bedroom (air-conditioned) and the single bedroom look over the internal courtyard (two little balconies). There is a new renovated bathroom with shower.
The choice of a large kitchen / living- room is because the kitchen is more and more a place opened to 'being together' without the walls to divide the rooms, without interruption in the space and in the time with the living room. The owner has felt therefore the need of a stylistic contamination between the area of the preparation of meals and the area of the relation, between the space for cooking and the living space in the diversity of the functions. It changes the kitchen but it changes the living room that integrates with areas of the house previously separated.
Not far from the shopping area and the old walls, a green belt, surrounding the historic centre.
