Aldo's property is 5 star! My wife and I stayed for three weeks and enjoyed the city and the area. The rental was spotless , with everything you required to be comfortable. The kitchen allowed us to cook on occasion without any problems. Bikes were available which allows you a different perspective being on and inside the Walls of Lucca. The location is ideal, a short direct walk to the city. Numerous facilities available near the rental as well. I can not imagine anyone being disappointed by this property. Thanks Aldo!! Cin Cin!
Home from Home - I wish!
This was our second stay this year in this apartment and we loved it again. It is cosy and comfortable. There are mosquitoes, but we find with a bit of repellent, it's no problem and it would not deter us from returning. (I'm already looking at December, April and June!) The area is so quiet and just around the corner are all the provision, independently run, shops you could ever want to eat Italian style. Just a pleasant walk to the walls of Lucca and the best Gelateria close by - La Piccolo Bonta, I think its' called. It has wonderful gateau as well. So special for us Brits to be able to go out at 10.00 at night for ice cream on a warm evening!!!
Perfect apartment for visiting Lucca
The exterior pictures of this apartment, with the colorful flowerpots and the garden area in back, is what attracted it to me and it did not disappoint. It is exactly as pictured on a quiet street just a short walk from the walled city of Lucca. We loved being close to the city, but far enough away to be able to relax outside on the patio. The interior was perfect and had everything we needed for our two week stay. I was a little concerned at first that there was no air conditioning, but it was not an issue and the apartment was comfortable during our stay. As noted in other reviews, there are mosquitos while outside, so bring your bug spray. We have the same problem in central U.S., so it was nothing new to us. Also, the bed was a little too firm for our liking, but I know this is a personal preference and we were able to adjust to it during our stay. Aldo is a great host who was quick to answer questions when we had them, but gave us privacy the remainder of the time. We loved this little apartment that served as a home base for our cycling trip in Tuscany. We could live here!
One of the Best
We loved it and could happily move in and stay forever, but sadly we all have to come home!
The location is perfect with a flat walk to the walls and many temptations on the way, such as bakeries, patisseries and excellent gelaterias with the BEST ice cream, and 2 good supermarkets as well as the smaller food shops. You will never go hungry around here.
The apartment is very nicely fitted with everything needed for a holiday; it is spacious and cool, with a great selection of English books for holiday reading as well as local maps.
Thank you Aldo and family; we look forward to our return in September.
All the comforts of home
This apartment was a wonderful place for us to use as a “home base” for exploring Tuscany. The apartment was very comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed. The large shower was especially nice! Aldo was very helpful with information and assistance, but never hovered....he was there when we needed him. We had one issue with the WiFi connection which he quickly fixed, as well as offered us an alternative in case of future problems. The apartment is very close to cafes, 2 grocery stores, and a laundromat (NOTE: The laundromat does not show up on a GPS search; be sure to ask Aldo for directions - it is 2 blocks away). The apartment is within walking distance to the train station for easy travels throughout the area (our day trip to Pisa was a highlight). Luca itself has a lot to explore and photograph. The week we spent here was terrific!
A great base for exploring Lucca
We spent four days in Aldo’s apartment ... it was a perfect start for our travels in Italy!! Aldo gave us clear instructions for bus travel from the Pisa airport and he made our check in very easy!! He quickly responded and helped us when we were having wifi problems! We loved being close to local shops but outside of the crowds inside the old walled city. The kitchen was well equipped and screens on the windows were a real bonus.
The apartment is less than ten minutes (walking) from the walled city...we loved to walk on the wall pathways and wander in town but we were always happy to escape back to the apartment!!
Most of all, this holiday apartment in Lucca give you easy access to one of Tuscany's most charming, historic yet unspoiled cities. Less bustling than Florence or Pisa, Lucca sits snug within its massive medieval walls, the town within a maze of ancient streets, Renaissance churches, grand palazzi, good shops and excellent restaurants. An enjoyable day can be spent waling the 4 km circuit of the walls ... so deep are they that they are topped by parks and gardens, and are very popular with joggers, cyclists and sightseers. And when you descend to the town within, you'll find pedestrians and cyclists again take precedence over the motor car - this is a lovely town to stroll, enjoy and relax. Watching over Lucca from above, from one of the towers, one can enjoy an enchanting panorama over the red roofs, with lots of green and the summits of the Apuan Alps in the background. As Lucca is well connected through the rail network it is possible to visit other Tuscan towns without car. Pisa, Viareggio (and the Versilia coast), Montecatini and Pistoia can be quickly reached. Within approximately 45 minutes it is possible to reach Florence.
