Elegant Apartment with Lovely Decor

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was elegantly decorated every bit as beautiful as pictures. The kitchen was well equipped with all dishes and supplies. The location was in the center of beautiful Lucca and easy walk to all things we wanted to do. We enjoyed being next to Lucca Music Academy and hearing practice during days. The owner was great, meeting us and helping us locate property in this all pedestrian city. He was great with supplying restaurant names and arranging a taxi when time to leave. Very friendly and helpful. Would love to stay here again. Arreverdici Lucca!

Luxurious apartment with terrace in private quiet setting in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment and it was truly just like the photos! What an amazing location, right in the heart of Lucca. The apartment is tastefully decorated and features high ceilings, gorgeous architectural details and every modern amenity. This home is fully equipped. We wish we had booked a longer stay. The owner was so helpful and gracious and directed to many wonderful sights to see and fabulous restaurants.

Beautiful flat in outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

It's been almost a year since our stay in Lucca, but I remember our entire two weeks very fondly. Casa Olimpia, with its unbeatable location and charming and helpful mother/son owners, could not have been more comfortable. It's not a huge apartment, but you will find everything you need, including plenty of closet space and a well-equipped, thoughtfully laid-out kitchen. We loved spending many days wandering around Lucca, seeing all the churches and museums and walking the wall. When we wanted to explore further afield, it was an easy drive to many wonderful places, Pistoia, Pisa, Volterra, Fiesole, but Lucca has plenty to keep most visitors occupied for a week or more.

Wonderful stay in Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! We stayed at the Olimpia and could not have been more happy with our decision. It was perfect! Located in a convenient spot for walking around the city of Lucca for shopping and dining, or a bike ride along the wall path that surrounds it. We also enjoyed being right next to the music school, where we got to enjoy the sounds of a piano or strings each day. The apartment had everything we needed and was spotless. Valerio was very pleasant to work with, as we planned our first trip to Italy and his son met us at the apartment, when we arrived and was so very polite and helpful. If you are trying to decide where to stay in Lucca, look no further. You can't go wrong with this property!

Charming, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

The description and pictures are accurate. This is a wonderful apartment with all comforts of home. Plenty of space, kitchen necessities (and more). We had warm weather, and the air conditioning was perfect (2 units, 1 in bedroom, 1 in main area). The location is perfect. The train station is located in walking distance. Our host had wonderful suggestions for restaurants, groceries and markets. Enjoy the books and guides throughout the book shelves in the apartment. There are 2 bikes included for your use. Take advantage and ride the wall of Lucca. Definitely would recommend to my friends and relatives. We enjoyed all the shops, restaurants and the sounds of music from the school close by. We also enjoyed using the trains for day trips to Cinque Terre and Pisa. We hope to come back in the future. We thank our wonderful host for the welcome fruit and wine upon arrival.

Exquisite Property in Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Olimpia is a gorgeous apartment in a wonderful location. The apartment was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and convenient to everything we did while in Lucca. We rented the apartment for 2 weeks, the first week being a week we took Italian lessons. We were able to ride our bikes (offered by the apartment owners) every day to class which was nearby. We also found the apartment very comfortable with the wonderful overstuffed chairs, comfortable couch and comfortable bed/bedroom. The bathroom was quite large with an attractive dresser for storage. We were also able to do laundry while we were there and cooked several meals in the full service kitchen. My husband and I would like to come back to Lucca and, if we do, we will definitely stay at the same place!
