About the property

PALMS is in the historic center, extremely quiet and comfortable


The apartment takes its name from the two palm trees that are in the entrance courtyard, right in the historic center of the city!

The house is very bright, as it is located on the second floor of a building which once was a convent, and is very quiet as it looks - from all sides - on patios.

And 'well cared for and furnished with modern taste: the kitchen is a separate room from the entrance, living room, and through a small hallway leads to the laundry room, bathroom with shower and double bedroom.

The mattress is very comfortable, the house is equipped with air conditioning and the two guests can have breakfast in the kitchen and dining in the living room.

The apartment is reached by climbing the beautiful stone stairs that were the entrance to the monastery, or taking the elevator.

The location is fantastic, it is in fact an internal courtyard of the main street of the city: cafes, supermarkets, bars and restaurants are just off the court. The famous square Amphitheatre is 100 mt.

The highway is very close to the old town (less than 10 minutes by car), the bus station and train station - from where you can easily visit Pisa and Florence - are within walking distance in 20 minutes, and the bus stop the center is at 100 mt.

The closest parking is at 400m.

In the apartment you will find:

air conditioning

Online Internet wifi

Satellite TV

Ipod docking station


washing machine

iron and ironing boards


microwave oven



private elevator

Great centrally located apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location - close to everything. And at the same time unbelievably quiet. All the amenities in apartment made it feel like home. It was even complete with an elevator (which most places in Lucca do not have) and a dishwasher! Great host. We recommend to all and hope to come back next year.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have Carol as a guest, I highly recommend her and her husband to all the hosts, communication was easy and nice and they arrived in perfect timing, we met in front of the apt entrance and they were absolutely super nice from the very beginning. As usually I've gave them good advices and ideas for their staying but as they already visited Lucca several times they already know lots of info about our beautiful city.

A lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this lovely ancient town. The apartment is spotlessly clean, well equipped and has been finished to a very high standard. As an added luxury the apartment is served by it's own private lift which was a great welcome following hours of walking around the miles of streets and alleys of Lucca. Although the apartment is at the north side of town we found it an easy walk to the bus station (10-15mins) and the train station (15-20mins). Alternatively the taxi rank is 2-3mins around the corner.

Looking forward to another stay in the future.

The best way to say it: "There is not a better 2 person rental inside the Lucca walls"...Why you ask?

1. Location: It is on the main street of Lucca (Fillungo) but set behind another building so you have peace & quiet inside a very busy touristy town. There are 2 Italian Deli's less than 2 minute walk from condo + 4 bar/pastry shops inside a 100 yard circle.

2. Condo: Nicely furnished with modern heating and A/C system where you (not the building) control the environment. The apartment has everything you need for however long you decide to wife and I stayed 30 days with no issues.

3. Security: A key´d elevator that opens on the condo level backed up with a private locked staircase for those who wish to walk-up the stairs.

As background, this was not our first stay in a Lucca rental; however, by far, our best experience. (yes, that's a period!!!)

Wonderful apartment in the heart of Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Palms. The apartment was spacious, well-equipped and perfectly located on one of the main streets in Lucca. Enrico was very welcoming and hospitable, and easily contacted. We loved the fact that the apartment was in an old convent, but beautifully remodeled. It had high ceilings, a nice kitchen, and beautiful bathroom! The wifi worked well, and we felt very secure in the building. An added plus was having the elevator since we were using a stroller. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends and family! Thank you for a wonderful stay Enrico!

A month in heaven

  • 5 of 5

Le Palme proved a perfect spot for our month long stay in May/June 2016. The location is central in a secure, upstairs apartment with private elevator. The apartment is spotless with fully functioning kitchen appliances, a washing machine, flat screen TV with English language programs available, lovely views, sweet breezes and great WiFi. Our host Enrico was fluent in English, charming, and available. His "orientation" to the premises and the neighborhood was invaluable as we learned our way around the walled city. His tips on grocers, gelato and restaurants were great. This stay was everything we'd hoped for and more.
