This apartment is large and airy with fabulous facilities. It has a very welcoming feeling and the very comfortable couch is super relaxing after a long day of sightseeing, walking , cycling or any other activity you have partaken in! (cycle hire is next door) For English visitors Channel 21 on the HD TV can be changed to English speaking. The view from the living room windows is fabulous and a beautiful view of the sunset is guaranteed. You are also guaranteed a great night's sleep as it is so peaceful. If you like your home from home comforts, all are catered for eg, dishwasher, washing machine, walk-in shower. The property is ideally situated within the walls and you are in the centre of everything, also Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini, so if you wish to indulge in some culture you will have the opportunity. If you have a hire car there is a free car park a short distance away outwith the walls. We left our car there for a week and it was perfectly fine, there is a market on a Saturday so park it in the centre of the car park, not the left hand side as you drive in. If you are arriving by train or visiting anywhere else in the area, the train station is also nearby. I definitely highly recommend this property and do intend to return... That said, if you have poor mobility it would not suit as it is top floor.

A Beautiful Apartment, An Excellent Location, and a Very Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

We (my girlfriend and I) rented this lovely apartment for two weeks. We did not want to leave! The location was perfect, the furnishings were very nice and the apartment was well furnished and very clean. The apartment is much brighter than shown in the pictures. We loved looking out the windows to see the wall and the mountains. The apartment is within the walls, yet very quiet. The beds were very comfortable and the owner left plenty of towels. We especially liked having a washing machine. WiFi worked great. We were too busy to enjoy the large television in the living room, but it was nice to know it was there. The kitchen was well stocked. You have to climb a few stairs to reach the apartment, but the steps are well worth it and help keep you in shape. You will not be disappointed if you rent this apartment.

Beautifully maintained apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We ( my husband, son and I ) loved this apartment. It was beautifully presented, and felt more like home than a rental. The apartment was clean, and very specious, with various living "zones" to provide privacy for us all. The owner was very considerate and had left grocery items ( pasta, coffee, tea, etc) for us to use, as well as a welcome and New Year gift. ( We had New Year and the following week in Lucca). Despite the 3 levels of stairs ( not great with bags), it was worth the climb up each day after exploring the region to come home to the comfort of this apartment. The views from the front facing windows, to the street below, the wall and the mountains beyond was really lovely. From the bedrooms looking out, one could see the rooftops and neighbouring homes and apartments, again, very pleasant. We did have a few issues with water and heating, and we were very impressed that the owner, despite having a 4 month old baby, came immediately to resolve the problems. She was so warm and

friendly and recommended many places within the walls of Lucca to purchase foods and various items. All were excellent suggestions. The kitchen was well equipped to make our meals if necessary, and everything worked well.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family alike, as it was exactly what we were hoping for, actually better, and certainly made our stay in Lucca more memorable. Hopefully we will return to Lucca and stay in the same apartment again. Many thanks. Dianne

Very very special place!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, both in our sixties, stayed here for 6 nights and loved it. The pictures are good, but the apartment is even better...decorated beautifully and yet very warm and welcoming. It was spotless and the kitchen and bathrooms were well supplied. We were having such a good time sightseeing, we never used the TVs, but the WIFI worked well. The location inside of and close to the wall and right next to the San Frediano! We took a day tour to Cinque Terre which was well worth it, but otherwise stayed in Lucca, exploring, exploring. Elena and Lucca were gracious hosts. Highly recommend his apartment!

this is the best apartmentt in lucca

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 10 nights from 25th July to the 6th August. The apartment is fantastic and better than we imagined. The photos are great but the apartment is better. The free Wifi was a big hit with the children.

The location is perfect. 2 minutes walk to the walls and 2 minutes walk to the main shopping street.

Luca and Elena are the best hosts I have had in all my years travelling with my family. They really care if you are 0having a good time. 20 minutes to the beach and Pisa. What could be better?

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment.

Perfect Location in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely perfect! My family of 2 adults and two teens visited Lucca in June. Lucca is a great town to spend time in - it is a beautiful city with great restaurants, shops, and sites to visit. It is also a great place to use as a base to visit other parts of Tuscany. There are many great locations within a short train ride. We visited Pisa, Via Reggio (the beach), Cinque Terre and other great locations. This apartment was perfect to unwind after a day out - there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. The location is great - there are many restaurants, shops and sites within a short walk. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Tuscany.
