About Stephen Dalton
As an architect for 30 years, married to an Italian I wanted to do more than visit Italy. I wanted to experience Italy.
Stephen Dalton purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Stephen Dalton chose Lucca
Located in a building built in the 1500's it has a unique charm and potential to be an amazing property. Completely gutted and renovated I could design it the way I wanted it to look.
What makes this Apartment unique
It is right in the City Center, inside the walls and steps away from the best restaurants, shopping, art venues and historic sites. The City wall is a unique feature where you can jog and bike away from cars and view the City below. It is an amazing City.

Hoping to stay again someday!
The apartment was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated with everything we needed for our stay. Across the street is a nice bar (cafe) to have our evening Aperitivo, where we enjoyed people watching and planning our next day and we could still pickup the wifi from the apartment. Paula was a great hostess; showed us around the apartment and gave us some good recommendations for eating out. We really like the town of Lucca so if we ever get the chance to return we hope to stay at this apartment.
We very much enjoyed Ericka and Kent's staying with us. They were wonderful guests and we would welcome them back anytime.
Historic charm, thoughtful, modern conveniences!
This wonderful find is located in the historic center of Lucca. Only a few steps from shopping, dining and a stroll along the famous walls of the city.
The apartment has been completely updated with modern touches including a towel warmer and washer and dryer. It truly is special.
Stephen and his local representative, Paola, were lovely to work with. Very responsive to any questions, and even a last minute schedule change.
So looking forward to visiting Lucca again and staying in this apartment!
Lovely, modern apartment in a perfect location
Stephen's place suited us down to the ground. Excellent communication both pre and post stay and a warm welcome from Paola on arrival. The apartment is exactly as described - modern, spacious and extremely well equipped and is ideally located for exploring Lucca on foot as well as day trips by train to wider Tuscany - the train station is only a 15 minute walk or less than 5 mins by taxi. There is some street noise from the bars below at night but, with the shutters closed, it really didn't bother us - in fact we saw it as a bonus to have shops and bars literally on the doorstep. Lucca itself is just wonderful - can't wait to go back.
Superb apartment in fantastic location
My wife and I loved our stay at Stephen's apartment. It's in a great location within the walls a few steps away from via fillungo, one of the main shopping streets in Lucca. The apartment itself is very well designed, finished to a high standard and was spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend this apartment for a stay in this wonderful city.
We really loved our stay in this apartment, so fresh and modern and in the most perfect location. We hope to return to Lucca some day and will definitely be book this apartment again. Thank you Stephen and Paola for your very kind hospitality.
Family Trip to Lucca
This was our family's first trip to Lucca. The host tried to accommodate us with every request and was very responsive with communication. The apartment is beautiful, very clean, and has just about everything you need to have a great stay. The location is close to the "main street" of Lucca, has cafés, bars, and gellato places right outside, and within a short walk to grocery stores, parks, shopping, and pizza shops. When sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room there was some noise from the bars outside; however, this is not as much of an issue in the bedroom. Overall we were very happy with our stay and the apartment.
Lucca is a charming Tuscan city with walls surrounding it built in 1513. Inside the walls are great restaurants, high end shops, art venues, theater and historic homes. Everything you need is within walking distance.
Nearby is Florence (1 hour) and the beaches of Forte di Marmi (30 minutes away) as well as wineries of Tuscany and The Mall, a virtual Disney World of the best outlet shops (Prada, Gucci, Michael Kors, Yves St Lauren, Burberry, Fendi, Ferragamo, etc.).
Public parking is available near the apartment, although it can get busy on the weekend. There are buses and a train that can take you to Florence, Rome or anywhere else in Italy you want. Florence is the best connection for the fast train to Rome and Venice.
