Room with bathroom with private entrance overlooking Villa Bottini
- english, italian
I live with my family in Lucca and I am graduated as a electric technician, however now I work as a blacksmith in my own firm where I make many different objects that I use to furnish my apartments.
Vinicio purchased this Apartment in 1976
Why Vinicio chose Lucca
Owing this attic insid the Walls and being a curious and open-minded person towards other cultures and habits, I decided to renovate my apartment, which owns its own idependent entrance, in order to let people visit my home town.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is a studio apartment, made up by a bedroom and a bathroom with its own independent entrance, which was used as an outbuilding of the Villa in the past centuries so it has a wonderful view into Villa Bottini's garden. Villa Bottini is the only villa inside Lucca's Walls and it was built by Elisa Baciocchi, Napolen's sister, during the 19th century when she was princess of Lucca and Piombino. There the trees remind of the past days as the numerous rose gardens and camellias which offer relaxing moments. The garden is free and it is open from 8a.m. until 8p.m. and events are often set in it.

Molto carino e curato
Piccolo monolocale, ed era quello che cercavamo, incastonato fra le mura di lucca ma lontano dalla confusione. I gestori sono cordiali e super disponibili....abbiamo fatto un po' tardi al check-out! Consigliato, vivamente consigliato!
Grazie per il tuo commento che abbiamo molto apprezzato, speriamo di rivederti in futuro.
