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.

Stylish apartment with a lovely terrace!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a place that's comfortable, well equipped and close to the main attractions and restaurants. Gaia was a pleasure to deal with and helpful in transporting our bags to the apartment from the car park. Only negative is the steep stairs to the apartment. Not a problem for us but would be for someone with mobility issues.

Beautiful home and lovely host

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 spent 8 nights at this charming apartment in Lucca. We stayed at several lovely vacation rentals in Italy and France but this was by far the best. Gaia met us to park our car in her secured spot outside the wall of the village and took us and our luggage to the apartment. The apartment is even lovelier than pictured! It was really hot in Italy when we were there and the air conditioning works very well. Gaia has great decorating taste and we felt very at home. We ate breakfast and several dinners on the beautiful terrace. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was spotless. We all loved Lucca and the apartment was a relaxing oasis in the middle of everything. There is so much to do in Lucca and within easy driving distance. Biking the wall, walking cobbled streets while eating the best gelato ever were highlights, along with the music festival with artists like Van Morrison and Lionel Richie. We made several day trips by car, including a beach recommended by Gaia and Cinque Terre. We wished we would have stayed another week in this town. Lastly, when booking our trip, I always look to see reviews about the host. You won't find a better host. Gaia goes out of her way to make her guests comfortable and their stay enjoyable. She takes her time on arrival to discuss restaurants, activities, where to get groceries, etc.Communication with her before and during our stay was easy. Grazie Gaia, we will return to Lucca!

Great location, beautiful apartment, terrific host

  • 5 of 5

Casa Gaia is a warm and comfortable place that was very easy to live in. Located on the Anfiteatro, it was walking distance to great restaurants, markets, and shops. Gaia was great to work with from the time of the booking through our entire stay.

We really loved the terrace which had beautiful views of the city's towers and rooftops as well as the distant mountains.

Lucca is an extraordinary city and although we've been there many times, it is always our favorite place in Italy.

I would like to thank Gaia for a wonderful stay!
