Great value accommodation near Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

On our way back to France from Greece we stopped here for a week so that we could visit our beloved Lucca. We have 3 dogs, so we can't stop in Lucca itself because there are few, if any, houses with gardens. This little house had everything we needed inside and a beautiful large garden outside. It wasn't enclosed for the dogs, but it didn't matter as it wasn't near a busy road and they had plenty of things to explore near the house. The owners were really helpful and friendly, we were near a lovely park, and it only took us 10 minutes to bike into the centre.

We would definitely come back here again.

Sehr freundliche Vermieter, um alles besorgt. Gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaus mit schönem und grosszügigem Aussenbereich.

WLAN-Verbindung / Internet-Zugang nicht immer gut, TV etwas klein.

Le nid du bonheur

  • 5 of 5

Cette petite maison baptisée "Il Nido" par Fiorella et Carlo est tout simplement parfaite pour des vacances réussies en Toscane. A proximité immédiate de Lucca, elle dispose de tout le confort pour profiter des atouts de la région : confortable, bien équipée pour cuisiner les bons produits locaux, climatisation et également vélos, éléments indispensables pour découvrir les charmes incontestables de Lucca (idéalement situé entre Florence et Pise). La ville de Lucca et ses fameux remparts resteront un très bon souvenir de vacances (running, vélo, gastronomie, culture italienne). Merci Fiorella et Carlo pour votre gentillesse lors de notre séjour.

allez-y les yeux fermés !

  • 5 of 5

Après de longue heures de route, nous avons découvert un lieu de villégiature parfait pour passer de bonnes vacances en Toscane.

La maison est très jolie, fonctionnelle, très propre et bien équipée. Dans une propriété calme et à l'écart du bruit mais proche d'une ville qui nous a agréablement surpris et que nous avons visité à de nombreuses reprises, Lucca qui est à notre avis la plus belle ville de Toscane.

Les propriétaires sont discrets, charmants et très gentils. Mention spéciale à leur fils qui parle bien anglais et qui nous a aidé avec un problème de PV indu ( il a écrit en italien à la police de Firenze).

Un vrai bonheur !

From the A11, exit Lucca East. They line the walls of Lucca and follow the signs to Camaiore. Cross the bridge over the river Serchio, turn left and after about 50 meters turn left again and go on the road that runs along the bank of the river (Via delle Piagge).

After a descent continue for about 300 meters, then along a large garden bordered by cypress trees, turn into the small road to the right and then left.

If you love art, Lucca and the countries of the Province, will offer treasures of great historical and artistic museums, churches, Romanesque churches, historic villas and palaces, villages, towers, bridges and forts will leave you in awe for their beauty.

If you love nature and the outdoors have not spoiled for choice between the worldly Viareggio and the coast of Versilia, the Apuan marble mountains, the forests of the river Serchio, hot springs , parks, nature reserves and finally the luxurious gardens of Renaissance villas.

If you are greedy, taverns and local restaurants, will prepare delicious dishes: genuine food, seasoned with the excellent oil of the hills, is always accompanied by good wine Lucca.

These, some of the most important events: the antique market the 3rd weekend of each month, the Summer Festival in July with the participation of famous singers internationally, from October 29 to November 1, the famous Lucca Comics & Games trade show cartoon lovers from all parts of Europe.

Then, in the city of Puccini can not miss the music and at various times of the year are organized shows and entertainment of classical and modern music, dance, theater and concerts in the most evocative of the old town. Then the 'September Lucchese' with exhibitions, markets and historic procession of the Holy Cross, the exhibition of the Camellias, the march of the villas, the feast of the air, the Via Francigena .... Lucca will never cease to amaze you !!
