CACHI 3 is a spacious stunning and bright apartment in the heart of Lucca historic centre at PIAZZA SAN GIOVANNI facing its Church with a wonderful view over the Romanesque Façade white Carrara Marbles and Tiles. Every window is a picture. Gorgeous panorama from the balcony! Privileged view of the beauty of San Giovanni Square and inner gardens.

Luxury from the beginning: an elevator leads you from the street level to the apartment's door. The apartment lies on a third floor and consists of an entrance with an open fully equipped modern kitchen connected to a large and bright living room with sofa, seats, a large flat tv, a table for 6 and a french windows opening onto a spacious panoramic terrace with another dining table for 6 and a sofa.

You will love the magic atmosphere of this place. History from one side and modern amenities on the other side. Design furniture. Design lamps. Extremely-cared details. Important to know that the apartments have been recently totally restored in 2016. Even more important to know is that the owner is an architect, interior designer.. and this makes the result as a perfect place to stay.

The apartments CACHI 2 and CACHI 3 can be rented together to accommodate a large group of up to 7 guests and have the great bonus of two terraces, two kitchens … two of everything in only one fantastic setting. Don't forget: ELEVATOR.

ABOUT the LOCATION

Perfect Location in the pedestrian area of Lucca historic centre between the two most important churches: San Giovanni (where every night you can enjoy a concert) and San Martino, the Cathedral where the famous and unmissable Ilaria del Carretto is. The main Piazza Napoleone is just round the corner as well as the lovely Piazza san Giusto. Train and Bus station are less than 10 minute walking away. Restaurants and groceries are few steps away. The access to the promenade on the top of the city's walls is just round the corner. I could not find a better located apartment. It is very central .. few steps from everything! in this area, every third weekend of the month here in the two squares there is the antique market.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

LOVE THIS APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

I love everything about this apartment. It is in a great central location in a pedestrian area so it is quiet. It has an elevator. Yes, it is slow as previous guests have stated, but when you have luggage, groceries or if you are tired it is great to have. The apartment is well designed with two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. There is a laundry room with drying racks. The terrace is amazing, I just wish that we had used it more but we were constantly on the go. The apartment is located in a piazza along with the church of San Giovanni. They have nightly Puccini concerts which we highly recommend. Great restaurants are close by. The information booklet that the owners put together is very helpful and I recommend taking their advice. This is a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Evelyn! I agree that the fact that the elevator is slow is not a down side so everyone is super happy to be able to use it since they are so rare! All the staff here at LuccaApartmentsandVillas was delighted to host you in our luxury apartment with terrace! Thank and see you again soon! Sonia

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 7 nights in early Sept. in this delightful apartment in the lovely town of Lucca. The apartment is perfectly situated by the San Giovanni church. Here each night they have a Puccini recital which we attended 3 times. A wonderful hours entertainment of top quality operatic singing. The apartment itself is on the top floor with a lovely terrace giving great views over the rooftops and the mountains behind. The bedrooms are on the opposite side and overlook the Piazza with the church. This gives plenty of opportunities to people watch from above ! The apartment is clean and has 2 bathrooms each with a shower ( no bath ) . The kitchen has all the appliances needed although no toaster. Air conditioning is in the living room and kitchen area only, not in the bedrooms. With the doors closed it could get a little warm at night but nothing too bad. Location is excellent as the main shopping street, Via Fullingo is a 3 minute walk away. Everything is on your doorstep but in a quiet setting. No noise at night so lovely and quiet. Lastly there is a lift to the apartment which is amusingly pedestrian but it does help with the luggage etc. Sonja met us on arrival and was very helpful and enthusiastic and gave us advice and tips on getting the best from her home town. I would happily return here next time we stay in Lucca. Highly recommended.

Beautiful property, very well located

  • 5 of 5

I spent five nights in the property with my wife. The apartment is clean, modern and very well located, we could easily walk anywhere within the walled city area, plenty of bars, restaurants churches, museums. We particularly enjoyed spending early evening on the terrace watching the swifts overhead while having a sun-downer.

the most wonderful stay we had in Tuscany was here

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife have chosen this apartment to spend our honeymoon in late February and it was just perfect. Apartment is very well equipped, is clean, spacious and comfortable. Situated in a residential area not packed with tourists and with parking within walking distance, it has an excellent location for exploring Lucca. The large outside terrace is perfect for enjoying the morning coffee or an evening glass of wine with your beloved someone. And the most important, colaboration with Signora Sonia was excellent; she was a very warm and helpful host. Thank you a lot Mrs Sonia ! We had a great time in Lucca in Cachi 3 penthouse! :D

Great location inside the walls !

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at apartment cachi 3 at the 3rd and last floor of the building located at Piazza San Giovanni very near to Duomo and walking distance from all attractions. Outstanding location ! By the way, we had a rented car but never used it within the walls - it's all about walking and bicycling !!

The apartment is in an old building as expected but it has been redecorated recently with brand new appliances and furniture so all the basics are covered ... it was a comfortable stay for three people during a whole week. The only issue was related to the wi-fi signal: in the very first day we lost the signal in the ADSL modem and it could not be fixed for the whole week ... it took days for the administrator to get another modem so we had to pay a small fortune on our cells roaming bill to stay connected with home. By the way, pay attention to the two options of payment as if you choose credit card there will be a 2.7% fee plus the 60 Euros fee for cleaning plus the soggiorno city tax 30 Euros and the administrator expects cash only at entrance. On a charming note, the elevator is unforgettable - it runs so slowly up and down that you can take the stairs easily and beat it to the ground ... it was amusing and lots of fun to ride in. We recommend the place for your next trip to Lucca.
