very spacious and comfortable, especially the double bed. well equipped. very conveniently situated. very friendly and helpful owners. thanks to their advice knew not to drive into Florence. looked instead on tripadvisor and drove to commercial centre on outskirts with large supermarket and free parking and took frequent tram, 9 stops, to main train station in Florence. also took their good advice to visit barga and countryside around.

thank you.

Amazing Place and Amazing People

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 young children) stayed in this apartment for 1 month and we could not of asked for more. The apartment is in a fantastic location in Lucca, overlooking the wall, on a great street in the centre of the historic city. It is close to great bars, bakeries and Lucca's best gelato, not to mention the numerous playgrounds on the wall for the kids and is walking distance to the train station. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with modern facilities and wonderful views, it had a great ambience.

What made our stay so great were the hosts Gina and Edoardo. They were so helpful, friendly, generous and kind, they were absolutely amazing. They could not do more for us and they continue to help us, since we are trying to stay in Lucca on a more permanent basis. Thank you so much for making us so welcome here, you have made us feel like part of the family!

If you are thinking of going to Lucca I would truly recommended staying here!!

cocon au coeur de Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Nous revenons d'une semaine passée dans cet appartement avec nos deux filles. L'appartement est situé au coeur de la ville de Lucca et est en cela absolument idéal pour se promener et flâner dans les ruelles si charmantes et pittoresques de cette ville. Certes, il est situé au 4ème étage sans ascenseur mais cela permet de faire un peu de sport entre les pizzas, pâtes et glaces ! Il ne dispose pas d'un parking direct mais le propriétaire vous conseillera un parking tout proche gratuit à quelques minutes de marche ou un parking situé à 200 mètres de l'appartement payant. Nous avions choisi le parking gratuit et tous les matins nous allions à la voiture pour débuter nos excursions. Le parking situé devant une école maternelle en plein coeur d'un quartier résidentiel est tout à fait sûr. L'appartement dispose de tout le confort et est très propre et décoré avec beaucoup de goût et de personnalité. A peine franchi le seuil, vous vous y sentez bien, comme à la maison! Carlos, le propriétaire, nous a accueillis avec de nombreuses attentions qui font chaud au coeur: corbeille de fruits, petit déjeuner, du chocolat pour nos filles (c'était Pâques!), de petites attentions qui font que le séjour italien démarre sous les meilleures auspices. L'appartement est très fonctionnel et il n'y a absolument rien à redire. Vous ne pourrez pas être décus en allant dans ce cocon au coeur de la si jolie ville de Lucca!

Séjour au coeur d'une ville magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré cet appartement joliment décoré et équipé totalement pour une famille de 4. Dans le centre ville il permet de se plonger dans la vie italienne et de flâner dans les rues animées de Lucca. Carlos est un guide parfait pour visiter la région et fournir de bonnes adresses. Il vous montrera où manger les meilleures pizzas, faire vos courses, vous garer gratuitement... Un accueil à la carte et plein de bonnes attentions: corbeille de fruits, petit déjeuné, bouteille de vin...Les seuls bémols peut-être, l'absence d'ascenseur et de climatisation.

Merci Carlos

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine en famille dans cet appartement du centre de lucca.

Il est tout à fait conforme à la description et Gina et Carlos sont charmants et facilement joignables si besoin.

Nous avons visité Sienne, Florence, Pise, San Gimignano et Volterra qui sont tous situés à 1h00 et 1h45 de route.
