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!

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We've always liked Lucca, but after two weeks in this apartment it's now our favourite city in Italy.

Location in the city centre can't be beat, and the spacious terrace is a huge bonus. (Look on Google maps , you won't find another one anywhere close).

The owner, Gaia, lives in the same building and couldn't be more helpful.

Secure parking in Gaia's extra underground space is an added benefit.

Already thinking about when we can go back.

Exceptional vacation home with an amazing terrace and gorgeous views. Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending 10 wonderful days in this exceptional apartment. As beautiful as the photos and the description were, they cannot represent the best of this vacation home. We were two couples who enjoy cooking and the kitchen had everything we needed, including some start up items and a nice bottle of wine. The shops and a market were just a short walk which was perfect. The plant filled terrace provided an excellent location for relaxing, dining, and enjoying the beautiful views. The cleanliness was superb, the beds very comfortable and having a washing machine was a plus. There is ample space for two couples to have privacy. We always choose vacation homes rather than hotels and have stayed in very many throughout Italy and this apartment is at the top of our list and one we will definitely revisit. Gaia was a very gracious and friendly host. Upon meeting her at the designated time, we followed her to our assigned parking spot where she then escorted us to the apartment. She was very helpful with directions and we knew she was just a phone call away if we needed her for anything, which is not always true with some rentals. Lucca is a remarkable town and coming home each day to the beauty of the apartment made each one a treasure. We highly recommend this beautifully decorated, comfortable, and exceptional vacation home.

Spacious comfortable apartment in very central location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Gaia's lovely apartment for three weeks in August and had two separate lots of visitors staying with me during my stay. The apartment is exactly as described: it's very spacious especially by Italian standards, clean, modern and well equipped. I loved the balcony - it was perfect for an aperitivo before dinner and great for drying clothes during the day. I slept in the back bedroom whereas my guests stayed in the front bedroom overlooking Via Anfiteatro and Trattoria Ubaldo. On weekends the street noise can be a little disturbing for light sleepers but as the room has air conditioning, it is possible to close the window, and keep the noise out. Gaia is a wonderful host who is always available to answer queries, call taxis and help in anyway you need. She even carried my rather heavy suitcase up the steep stairs to the apartment. She very kindly supplied some wine, biscuits, coffee, tea and cool drinks on arrival. Lucca is a lovely Tuscan city and is very easy to live in and to get around. It's close to Florence and Pisa and the wall surrounding the city is the perfect park and ideal for running and walking for those concerned about keeping up their exercise regime. It's also so easy to hire a bike and cycle outside of the walls along one of the bike paths or quiet country roads. I loved it and look forward to returning.
