About Lara

I'm Lara and I like meeting new people from all over the world.

I can speak English and a bit of French and I am a sociable and helpful person.

Being born and raised in Lucca, I know my home town very well and I can show people around and making them know the most important attractions of Lucca or surrounging areas. I really like lingustic and cultural exchange.

I am very creative and I love photography, bricolage and decoupage.

I love to cook, to make cakes, fine wine and good food.

Lara purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Lara chose Lucca

This property is in the Lucca heart and here there is a magic atmosphere. We can see the view over the roofs, on San Martino belfry and on the Walls.

A gem of an apartment in Lucca

  • 4 of 5

I would give this rental four-and-a-half stars if I could, as it was just about perfect for us.

We spent two weeks in Lara's lovely flat. She was very welcoming and accommodating. She met us at the flat and gave us a thorough introduction to things. She also left a long list of suggestions for restaurants, grocery stores, and the like. The kitchen was very well-equipped, though some of the pots and pans are starting to show signs of use.

The apartment was in a perfect location: near to the walls and about a five-minute walk from the train station. The flat was a little noisy from time to time (there was construction in a neighbouring apartment) but it really didn't bother us.

We were in Lucca for two weeks in November, and it was cold and damp at times. The heating works well but we found that the living room took a while to warm up. The bed was comfortable, the shower worked well (though you have to be careful with the folding door or you will have water all over the floor) and it is always great to have laundry facilities on-site.

It is worth noting that this flat is on the top floor of the house, on the fourth floor. We didn't mind the climb, but it would be tough for those with mobility issues.

The only issue we had at all with the flat was during a couple of days of very heavy rain, when the tile roof leaked into the kitchen. Lara responded very quickly and even offered to come over and clean up, if necessary--which it absolutely wasn't.

We loved Lucca, and this flat was a big part of our enjoyment of the city. We'd love to return and would be only too happy to stay here again.

Lucca Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to recently spend 4 weeks in this fantastic apartment in Lucca. From our very first contact with Lara until the day we sadly left Lucca, the whole process was stress free. The apartment is immaculately clean and exactly as described. The location is so central, being a true 10 minute walk from the train station, 1 minute walk to the Lucca Wall, 5 minutes from the local Conad supermarket and Via Filungo. All in all, we had a wonderful experience in this beautiful town and Lara's apartment was the best part of all. We would stay in no other apartment if we are ever lucky enough to be in Lucca again. Grazie Lara.

Convenient, Clean, and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven days in this apartment and it met all our needs very well. The property has not been available as a rental for long, so some of the things one might expect to find in properties which have been available as rentals for a while were not there. For instance, one might expect a few basics of cooking to be in the kitchen (salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, etc.) leftover from other visitors but they were not since there have not been very many other visitors. This was not a problem for us, since we preferred to dine out while there, but for some snacking it is nice to have those items. We did purchase some items fully expecting to leave what we did not use. I consider this a way of paying forward to the next guests, since we have used what was available left by others in different properties through the years.

The owner was prompt, friendly, courteous, and very helpful. She gave us some good information about where to find items we wished to buy for friends back home and quickly answered any questions we sent (we used email for communication, but there are other ways to contact her). She was also very accommodating of our need to leave extremely early the morning of our departure and we were able to leave our keys in the secure box downstairs on our way out.

The description of the property is accurate. Television, high speed internet, dishwasher, washing machine, etc. Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend the property and would love to use it again if we have the need or opportunity to do so in this area of Italy.

Just down the street and around the corner (back towards the town center) is a very good pasticceria with excellent coffee, pastries, and savory items to eat. We considered everything inside the walls of Lucca to be within walking distance. We had no bad experiences in any of the many restaurants or coffee bars we visited. Sadly, we had to return home.

Excellent location, very cosy and beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Lucca for a 6 week holiday was first class. Lara was the best host you can wish for. Very attentive, flexible, and friendly.

The flat has an excellent location in the centre, near gardens, shops and restaurants. Lucca is a very cute town and very recommendable.

The flat has a very cosy vibe and atmosphere. Very nicely decorated interior. Very clean and well organized. It had all the things we needed. We felt very much at home!

The flat has all the extras you can wish for such as good internet speed and connection, a great tv, dishwasher. We loved the kitchen, living room, bath room and bed room, all of them having their own charm.

My wife and I had a great time in the Lara's flat and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hello Chris, thank you very much for your kind review. It has been a pleasure to have you and Dominka (and the cats!) as guests in my house. You are both very kind and pleasant people: the ideal guests! You have been always punctual and at your departure you left the flat in a perfect state. Everytime you want to come back you are welcome! Lara

Relaxing in Lucca

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly as stated in the listing ~ it was immaculate & well maintained. Lara provided excellent customer service. Without hesitation we would recommend this property to family & friends. The location was perfect for us . . . an easy walk to the train station & bus stations, just steps to the wall and we enjoyed exploring Lucca on foot.

Die Wohnung liegt am Rande der sehr schönen Altstadt von Lucca. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten, nette Restaurants und Bars, sind zu Fuß leicht erreichbar. Die neu renovierte, liebevoll eingerichtete Wohnung hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Die Ausstattung ist perfekt, die Wohnung sehr sauber und die Vermieterin überaus freundlich. Das Auto konnte man jederzeit auf einem kostenfreien Parkplatz außerhalb der Stadt parken. Wir werden wiederkommen.
