True Home Away
Our weeklong stay at Casa Beatrice was a highlight of our trip to Italy because Isabella and Massimo understand that thoughtful design and gracious hospitality come together to create memorable guest experiences.
As the photographs depict, the rooms are comfortable and tasteful—elegantly casual—inviting guests to unwind and enjoy the spacious surroundings. Walking proximity to the City Center, a kitchen equipped with all you need for “let’s cook in” nights, bikes to ride on the Lucca Wall, a private courtyard with covered seating, and gated parking for a day trips rental car all added to the enjoyment of our stay.
Lucca is a great home base for visiting places like Florence, Cinque Terre, San Gimignano and the Tuscan countryside. Massimo generously and passionately shared his knowledge and recommendations for exploring the region. As a host, he is responsive in practical matters (explaining how to start the dishwasher) and big-hearted when it comes to helping guests with blunders (escorting us to get a refund when we expensively screwed up paying tolls on the Autostrade).
Pro tip: If you’re checking out Casa Beatrice on GoogleMaps, ignore the photos. The apartment is located in a neighborhood of fine homes and enjoyable restaurants near the Porta Elisa.
Go ahead and make the reservation. You’ll be so glad you did.
Perfect Home Base for Touring Tuscany
My wide and I spent just over a week at Massimo and Isabella's apartment together with another couple we were traveling with. In short, this stay was the highlight of our 2-1/2 week trek from Prague to Vienna and Tuscany. The apartment was immaculate, an easy 10 minute walk to the walled city of Lucca, and the perfect home base for touring Tuscany. Massimo was a wonderful host and genuinely loved sharing his home and his native Tuscany with us. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped - just like a home away from home. Don't bother looking elsewhere. If this place is available you better book it now - you won't regret it.
Great base for exploring Lucca and Tuscany
The apartment is exactly as described - spotlessly clean, well appointed and a fantastic location. The train station is an easy 10 minute walk - perfect for day trips to Florence and Pisa - and the old town (which is lovely) just a 5 minute stroll. The welcome pack of wine and snacks was a nice touch and Massimo is very friendly and helpful and always easily accessable via WhatsApp. The only negative I can think of was late night/early morning noise from the nearby pub, but that was mainly restricted to the weekends and is obviously not the fault of the owners. I’d recommend Casa Beatrice as a base for exploring a great part of the world.
Great place to explore Lucca!
Massimo's apartment was great for our month in Lucca. It was very spacious and clean. We had a mini van and the private parking was fantastic to have as well. And the location was amazing! It was only a few minute walk to the Port Elisa entrance to Lucca's walls. There is a fantastic seafood restaurant that was just a 2 minute walk from the apartment. Massimo was very helpful with anything that we needed for the apartment and he gave great recommendations for our stay in Lucca.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Massimo was very accommodating. The apartment was very clean and beautifully appointed. It was a short walk to get inside the walls of Lucca.
Beautiful, tastefully furnished apartment, with astounding attention to detail. The apartment was exceptionally well-equipped and the owners were only a telephone call away and very quick and happy to help with any queries. Nothing was too much trouble! The apartment is very well located just outside the wall, with private parking area and very pretty garden. We were welcomed with a basket of local delicacies, wine and a sample of home-produced olive oil. All in all it was a wonderful place to stay and I would highly recommend it.
