Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Modern apartment just inside the walls at Porta Pietro. The apartment is great, clean and has everything you need. Lorenzo gave us restaurant and site seeing recommendations and was very helpful. Easy walking to everything within the city. Rented bicycles to site see and ride along the wall, highly recommend doing it. Overall a great experience

Excellent 4 week stay in beautiful Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

Our enjoyment of Lucca was greatly enhanced by this accommodation. We had lots of space. The kitchen was very well stocked by all the items we needed for cooking. The apartment was kept very clean. The location just inside the wall was convenient and close to everything we wanted to do and visit. The owner was exceptionally thoughtful and friendly and responded immediately when we had any questions or needs. He was most helpful in informing us about his wonderfully cultured city to which we plan to return for a longer stay.

Great stay in a lovely apartment!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment inside the wall of historical part of Lucca. You will find in apartment everything what you need for your stay and from Lucca you have good bus connections to Florence and Pisa for day trips. Giuseppe was very welcoming and helpful with the tips for restaurants, beaches, trips. It is a city apartment so probably won't suit you if you looking for a quiet stay away from everything. We loved going for an evening walk in the city or nice dining. We fell in love with Tuscany and we will be definitely back again.

Après de très bons contacts mails avec les propriétaires (Giovanni et Daniela), une arrivée aux conseils routiers précieux (nous nous rendions au concert des Rolling Stones : avons pu éviter les embouteillages et stationner notre auto sans souci), un accueil charmant et la découverte d'un appartement tout confort, très classe, propre, où l'on se sent très bien.

Merci à Lorenzo (fils des propriétaires) qui nous a accueillis et guidés afin de connaitre et découvrir les bonnes références en matière de restauration (tout type) ou se poser à la terrasse d'un café pour y déguster un verre de Prosecco ou de vin de la région de Lucca.

Spacieux et élégant, très lumineux et à l'insonorisation parfaite (dernier étage) (aucune gêne des bruits de la rue - double vitrage), climatisation présente si nécessaire.

Nous recommandons vivement ce produit et si nous devons revenir nous ne manquerons pas de louer à nouveau cet appartement pour une ou plusieurs nuits.

Exceptional Lucca Style - 5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Romantic elegance. From the meeting at the station by our charming rental agent to our departure, we were completely relaxed and comfortable during our stay.

The property is well located inside the walls.There is easy access to the apartment via secure doors at the street level, an elevator and easy secure entry to the apartment. A thorough explanation of the apartment was provided by our agent upon arrival.

The apartment is very well maintained, exceptionally clean, with a focus on detail for guest comfort and therefore it lacked nothing. The overall decor is elegant with designer perfection throughout. Windows are beautifully draped and provide excellent natural lightening. It is quiet and has enjoyable views. The furnishings were comfortable and well located.

It is walking distance to the train station, museums, concerts, cathedrals, shopping and restaurants. Indeed there is much to do and see, however, we spent several days just lounging and enjoying the ambience of the apartment and sounds of the city with open windows.

We found several shops within a short distance with exceptional breads, pasta and a really fantastic Gelato shop that are rental agent recommended and should not be missed.

Travel books, brochures, maps, etc, were all made available. Wifi was fast and never an issue.

If we had a question, our rental agent was very responsive, professional and knowledgable and offered excellent recommendations for dining, sight-seeing, day tours, transfers, help with luggage, purchases and general information.

There is easy access to the wonderful wall surrounding Lucca which provides a splendid walk with views of the beautiful countryside. 

Many thanks to the owner of this property and to our rental agent for providing an exceptional Lucca experience.

Overall we give this a 5 star rating! Highly recommend! Yes we will be back!!

A nice combination of period pieces and modern

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is light, spacious, and Airy. It has a modern kitchen and bathroom, and period pieces in the bedroom, living room, dining room, and library. The apartment is conveniently located in a large builing near Porta San Pietro gate, so it is easy to access both inside and outside the walled City.

Our biggest complaint was with the rental agent, who required us to repeatedly call him to arrange a time to meet up with him. When we arrived at the appointed time, he still wasn't there and we had to call him yet again. Then he would not accept a credit card payment for the balance, and we had to find an ATM and walk the money to his place of work. He seemed not to know how things in the building worked, including the lock on the door, which required 4 turns to the left followed by four turns to the right with a skeleton key to unlock the four deadbolts in the lock. He did not know or show us where the switches were for the hallway and stair lights, so we stumbled around in the dark for several days until a building resident showed us where the light switches were.

Because of these inconveniences, we would be unlikely to rent this apartment again were we to visit Lucca in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear guests, I can't understand what you wrote in your review. The man you met arrived just 5 minutes after your call (because he was waiting your call), i don't think that would be a problem. Credit card is not a payment accepted, it is written on vrbo. It was asked to pay by cash at the arrival or you could also paid by wire transfert before your arrival so I can not find a reason because you are arguing that way. He knows the apartment and the building very well, but as you probably could have seen there were some works on the stairs ( reason because probably you have not seen the switches). You forgot to say that he helped you with bringing the legguage up and to bring your car in the free car parking. Thank you for your visit. Probably you need the service that a 5 stars hotel can give not an apartment. Best
