THE best in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bruno and Iliria's apartment overlooking the Anfiteatro.

The apartment is very comfortable with all of the amenities that we could have hoped for. The small touches were the ones most appreciated; coffee, tea, sugar, oil, vinegar and especially the umbrellas!

This was the 4th stop on our Italian holiday – and although the other apartments were also very good, none provided those “little extras”. It’s the little things that count the most when you're far away from home.

We found Lucca ideal for our day trips to Pisa and the Cinque Terre, and the city itself is captivating in many ways. We could easily have stayed within 100 meters of the walls of the Anfiteatro, everything we needed was close by.

Wonderful restaurants (especially L’Angolo Tondo) fantastic gelato, good shopping, all within a few minutes’ walk. We couldn’t have asked for better.

Sitting on the window sill as the sun sets and the lights around the Anfiteatro come to life one by one, with a glass of prosecco in hand is the best way to end a day – we will remember our time in Lucca with great affection.

Beautiful apartment in magical Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We just left this wonderful apartment and I can't wait to come back. You are above the fray but get to watch the theatre. The view is beyond special.

The apartment is spotless and well equipped and the bathrooms are spacious and modern. Restaurants and shopping are everywhere and there is a nearby train station if you can bear to leave. Bruno was great and we wish him much success but not so much we can't afford to stay here again, for longer than 6 days.

Lovely Apartment in Lovely Lucca

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I spent 6 nights at this wonderful apartment in lovely Lucca, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The apartment is even more beautiful than the photos suggest: spotlessly clean, lovingly decorated, and very comfortable. The beds are excellent, the bathrooms are very nice. The kitchen was well-stocked and easy to use. The flat was quiet at night for sleeping. The washing machine worked well. The location is very central and is close to both the main shopping street and to one of the portals near the ancient wall that encircles Lucca. Here we rented bikes several times and whizzed around the city.

Bruno met us at the train station and took us to the apartment, where he gave us maps and other useful information, including good restaurants and shops, plus the best places to buy gelato! There are 40 steps or so up to the third floor -- but that helped us burn calories from the luscious gelato that we bought regularly.

We took a day trip to Cinque Terre and considered doing others, but we loved Lucca so much that we mostly explored this wonderful city. We especially liked sitting in the living room with a glass of wine and looking out over the piazza. Morning, afternoon, or evening, the square provided us with endless entertainment.

Grazie, Bruno and Ilaria, for providing us with such a perfect place to stay. We would love to come back, and unreservedly recommend this apartment.

The perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to review this property as I'm afraid it will become so popular I could never again rent it! We were four friends from the US who stayed for two weeks in this well-appointed, comfortable apartment. The location was perfect for day trips to other locations, but I would have been content to stay within the walls of Lucca for the entire time.

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The pictures really do it no justice. Everything was perfect from the decor to the view onto the piazza, the location, the well stocked kitchen, etc... Bruno was so welcoming and provided us with great information on the town and restaurants. I would recommend this apartment to anyone! Grazie Bruno and Ilaria!

A great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights. The apartment is clean. The living room is comfortable and has a TV, although the English stations were not available. The kitchen is well equipped. The washing machine works well. The main bedroom is spacious with 2 windows and good lights for reading in bed. At night there is little or no noise, perfect for sleeping. The window in the living room overlooks the square. I enjoyed reading by the window with a glass of wine and enjoying the scene below.

Bruno was great to work with. He picked us up at the train station, recommended several good restaurants and stopped by briefly with his wife to say good-bye. I would not hesitate to stay at this apartment again.
