About the property

In a quiet area near the Cathedral, overlooking the ancient Walls

My beautiful 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, apartment with its own garden is really one of the best accommodation to enjoy the magic of this wonderful city of art.

It is centrally located in the Cathedral area, right by an access path leading to the Walls, very close to everything and just facing the famous Walls which enjoys a stunning view.

The apartment (90 square meters) can comfortably accommodate 5 people. It is on the first floor (from the street to the entrance there are only 3 steps to climb) of an ancient palace which thick stone walls keep the rooms cool on even the hottest days.

The apartment is quiet and bright. The windows face south, west and east looking onto the gardens enjoy also a beautiful outlook over towards the Walls.

There is an elegant sitting room with useful “library” with lots of tourist information and books in various languages, a well equipped spacious kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a bedroom with a king size bed, an extra large bedroom with a king size (or twin) and a single bed, and an utility room with washing machine and sink.

Cot, highchair and fans are available.

The apartment has the exclusive use of its walled garden , which is furnished with table, chairs, sunbed and barbecue.

This is a fantastic place to relax admiring the famous Walls, get a suntan, drink an aperitif and enjoy a leisurely meal. Smoking is permitted in the garden.

- Minimum stay is 7 nights but 5 nights rental may be possible.

- Heating, when necessary, is payable cash as consumed at the check out time.

Eccellente location ti explore the city,everything

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to explore the city. Everything was clean and tidy and the garden lovely.

We were travelling with two young children (7 and 5) and a 2 month old baby.

Daniela, the owner, was charming and helpful, and provided a cot.

The apartment is in a very nice area of the city just inside the ancient walls and an easy walk

to train station so we were also able to take the train to visit nearby towns such as Pisa, Viareggio, etc.

A lovely week. We recommend this property.

Fantastic - great value for money

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Lucca was perfect! It had everything we needed including a lovely walled garden where we ate dinner al fresco a number of times during the week we stayed in Lucca. Daniela was wonderful to work with, giving us ideas where to visit in the town, where to get groceries (especially pastries, bread and meat- just up the street) as well as meeting us at the wall when we arrived from the train. The apartment was clean and well-maintained with a washing machine which was very helpful for travellers like us, running out of clean clothes. Lucca was our base for a week of visits to various parts of Tuscany and Cinque Terre, but we were always glad to return "home to Daniela's place" after a busy day of touring. We would definitely recommend the apartment on Via Della Rosa to anyone and would love to return for a longer stay in the future. A couple of things to recommend would be a great restaurant- Ammodonostro on Via Della Fratta, the Museo Nazionale di Villa Guinigi (we met an Art History student who was great to talk to about the treasures here), the Botanical Garden and a Puccini concert at the cathedral. Lucca was a treasure all on its own and probably my favourite place in Tuscany. Grazie, Daniela!

A super holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a super holiday at this lovely apartment just inside Lucca's city wall. The apartment was cool and quiet and very convenient for the railway station, so we had no need to hire a car. We arrived by train and we enjoyed day trips by train to Pisa and Viareggio. Daniela, the owner, was welcoming and very helpful. The apartment was clean and well-equipped, with a spacious lounge, kitchen/diner, and a courtyard garden where we enjoyed eating most of our evening meals. There were games for the children to play, and lots of books, including guide books in English.

It was the ideal base for exploring Lucca and its surroundings. We could stroll up the street to the bakery in the mornings and we could easily walk to anywhere within the city walls. Lucca is a fascinating place with beautiful churches and towers, interesting shops, and the best ice-cream we have ever tasted! We loved hiring bicycles to cycle around the city walls, and on the last day we tried our tandems, which was great fun. The local people were really friendly and the local food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends.
