A lovely comfortable and spacious apartment in the walled city of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We loved Gaia's apartment. It is in a great location a few steps away from the Piazza Anfiteatro and close to all amenities and restaurants. The apartment is on the top floor and has a large terrace with views over the tiled roof tops of Lucca. The weather was dry and sunny so we were able to have breakfast outside every day and dinner when we were not dining out in one of the many restaurants close by. Gaia the owner was very helpful with her recommendations and all the restaurants we went to lived up to our expectations. There is a lovely deli 2 minutes walk away ..turn right when you exit the front door. We were very impressed at how clean the walled city was with rubbish being picked up continuously even at weekends. There is so much to see and do that the week just flew past. A must do activity is to hire bikes for a few hours and cycle on the walls all the way around the city. The city is filled with beautiful churches and in one of them there are concerts and recitals every single day of the year with varied professional performers and programs each evening to celebrate Giacomo Puccini who was born in Lucca. We highly recommend a visit to Lucca and if possible to this apartment in the Via Anfiteatro. ....you will not be disappointed.

A beautiful apartment in the heart of Lucca with a lovely sunny roof terrace

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is even better than the description and the photos do not do justice to the space inside and most important and uniquely, outside!

The rooms are large and comfortably furnished. There is a compact kitchen with had hob an oven as well as fridge and dishwasher. There is even a washing machine so you can pack lighter knowing you can do a wash!

The location could not be more central.

It's about 15/20 minutes to walk from the station.

Gaia is a lovely host and happy to recommend places to go eat. She even left us some cold drinks and coffee to get us started.

There are steep stairs up to the apartment but that is the 'price' you pay to benefit from a magnificent garden in the sky with beautiful views over Lucca. A Tuscan dream.

I would love to stay again if ever in Lucca.

Ciao Gaia!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Gaia's apartment. The apartment is even prettier than it looks in the pictures. The decor is beautiful. The terrace is perfect, and a great spot for relaxing with a bottle of wine in the evenings. We also appreciated all of the amenities -- from air conditioning that kept us cool even when temps approached 100 degrees Fahrenheit, to a washing machine, to good WIFI.

We loved the location just outside the Piazza Anfiteatro in Lucca. It's central to everything, including delicious gelato and restaurants, fabulous shops, and a grocery store. It was a great launching point for exploring Lucca on foot, even with two little kids.

Last but not least, Gaia was such a lovely host! We greatly appreciated all of her hospitality -- from the helpful restaurant and other recommendations, to the wonderful wine and other beverages she left waiting for us. Our kids keep talking about how much they loved Gaia and the apartment, too. We hope to be back! Grazie Gaia!!

Great apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. The apartment is spacious with plenty of privacy for two couples. We enjoyed the great terrace on several evenings and for breakfast. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. Gaia was very hospitable and made us feel at

home. She had even left us a few drinks in the fridge when we arrived. The location in Lucca is great. We walked to the train station twice which took about 20 minutes and were able to stroll to dinner every evening to various parts of the walled city. Can't wait to return!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 kids) had a wonderful week in Lucca. The apartment is close to everything but still in a quiet street with a terrace, which was like a little oasis in the middle of the city. The apartment itself was very cozy and had everything we needed. Gaia was very kind and helpful with our requests and could give us some good advice on places to eat and see. We can definitely recommend it and hope to be able to come back to the apartment another time.

Outstanding in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Gaia was everything you could imagine as a friendly, responsive host. The apartment--its private nature, spaciousness, A/C, WiFi--and the parking situation exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed to allow us to settle in and just enjoy Lucca was covered by this place. Gaia introduced us to the patrons of a local restaurant (Osteria La Bottega dell'Oste), whose food was heavenly and service remarkable. It fast became our favorite restaurant. The apartment is set up as if there were two separate sleeping/living spaces, which was especially enjoyed by our teenage son. The terraced patio and garden overlooking the neighborhood allowed for late-night wine consumption and fine conversation. We can't wait to tell friends and family about Gaia's place and to return! Thanks you Gaia for a memorable stay!
