Our ideas....: One can take advantage of the silence or create something different each day:

Pedal along the banks of the Serchio River, in the close vicinity of the Park on the River or across the hills on a mountain bike to the sea.

Reach Lucca’s historic centre in 5 minutes, situated in the tree-lined street of the ancient walls,

Visit Lucca’s Villas: splendid architectural witnesses of the nobility of the 1500”s

Explore the outskirts: the Coast of Versilia and the mountains of the Garfagnana, which are half an hour away by car, The “Cinque Terre” approx 50km.

Reach the important cities of Tuscany: Florence, Pisa and Siena.

Our ideas...

Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday.“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.

Our ideas....: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.

Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.

The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.

The Feast Day of Saint Zita: a beautiful floral market in the Amphitheatre Square, in memory of the patron saint of the city. Held during the week of 27th April.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Die Wohnung, in einer schönen Gesamtanlage im Erdgeschoss, war sehr schön und mit allem eingerichtet, was man für einen mehrwöchigen Urlaub benötigt. Francesco und Giovanna haben sich liebevoll um jedes Detail selbst gekümmert und hatten immer einen Rat für die alltäglichen Urlaubsprobleme. Das Feriendomiziel ist auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen.

Great holiday accommodation and holiday base

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Salvia apartment which was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Giovanna was on-site when we arrived and gave us an excellent introduction to the property and also advice reagrding nearby amentities and attractions. She was also around the property on most mornings in case we encountered any problems. She was extremely helpful in assisting us get the best from our time in Lucca.

The property had lots of room, was well equiped and nicely decorated with some extra added touches that helped it feel like a home. The place was quiet and secure and just as described on the website.

Being slightly outside the town of Lucca we were pleased to have use of a car, as otherwise it is about a 30 minute walk to the town. There is plenty of parking space on the property and thus we never had an issue with being unable to park nearby, which could well have been a problem if we had been in the town itself.

Lucca is a great base for exploring the area, either by car or train. If we ever wanted to stay in the area again we would certainly be happy to re-book this apartment and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Lovely setting close to Lucca

Giovanna was very friendly and helpful; the property was clean and well appointed and the grounds and pool were beautifully kept. Proximity to Lucca was a key factor for us.

What a little gem

  • 5 of 5

What a little gem we found here, a lovely apartment furnished just right with 4 large rooms and four separate outside seating areas if you count the pool area, lovely large well kept gardens and a pool to die for in the Italian heat. Giovanna is a lovely lady always on hand in the mornings to answer any questions you have while she is tending to her morning gardening duties. Supermarket, butchers, pizzeria, bar all 10 minutes walk away or 2 minutes in the car. Lucca town centre is about 20-25 minutes walk away or 5 minutes in the car with plenty of safe free parking available. Overall a beautiful quiet peaceful location with the only noise coming from the passing farm vehicles. Thanks for a great relaxing holiday.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit itself was great. A sympathetic renovation of an old farm house with every modern convenience. Giovanna was extremely helpful although her English is limited- as is our Italian. The grounds, about 5 acres of neatly mown grass and trees in the midst of wheat and vegetable crops, were relaxing and the large inground pool very inviting. The well stocked herb garden was an added bonus for cooking. The unit is close to Lucca old town and free all day parking and also to an extremely well stocked supermarket, butcher shop and easy access to the A11
