Property description

Recently featured on HGTV's 'House Hunters International', Casa Valeria is a luxury apartment located on the third and top floor of a restored 17th century palazzo, located in the heart of the historical centre of Lucca. The apartment includes all the modern comforts mixed with the owner's impeccable taste for an authentic Italian feel. Much of the furniture was acquired from the local antique markets of Lucca. There are wonderful views from every room including those of the walls, Duomo, rooftops and local gardens.

There are 3 bedrooms which sleep 6 people comfortably. The apartment has two lovely bathrooms, one with shower and one with bathtub/shower combo. The kitchen and living room are quite large allowing for a sense of space, even with 6 people staying in the apartment.

A large, private terrace, with 360 degree views of all of Lucca, as well as the surrounding mountains, is yours to enjoy throughout your stay. Enjoy a glass of local wine, with friends or family, as you watch the sunset turn the skies and tile roof tops of Lucca a beautiful shade of orange.

During your stay at Casa Valeria, we can arrange (in advance!) a variety of fun activities including cooking courses, home cooked meals and guided excursions such as Florence, Le Cinque Terre and Portovenere, Carrara, Forte dei Marmi Flea Market and Versilia, Chianti, San Gimignano and more. There is also an excellent language school within the walls, Koine, which offers courses in Italian language throughout the year.

WINTER 2009/2010 SPECIAL: For the months of November 2009 - February 2010, we will be offering special rates for monthly stays (up to 4 months): Please inquire directly with us!

Manager info

About: I came to Lucca, never having heard of the little city, in October 2005 for a month, to travel Italy, taste the wines, meet and enjoy the people and explore the countryside. Little did I know that I would fall in love with this quaint little city, nestled in the heart of Tuscany, and end of buying and renovating a three bedroom, two bath flat in the heart of the ancient city centre!! It took two years to complete the sale and renovation, but I learned to love the people even more and speak the language (somewhat, even though my vocabulary consisted primarily of contractor and building terms!) and I had fun doing the job! I worked with wonderful sub contractors and a great contractor, who's cousin owned the local wine store, and who's nephew was my geometre. I was lucky that House Hunter's International TV series heard of my adventure and ended up following me through my experience, and filmed the before and after renovation of the flat (although the decorative painting was not completed at the time of the final filming). I met some wonderful people in Lucca, included Vincenza without whose help I could not have finished and furnished my place so beautifully, and they are all still my friends, and each visit, we laugh, drink wine and toast the wonderful little town of Lucca.

Why Lucca:
I think I explain in the paragraph above, but basically I fell in love with Italy, and with Lucca! Tuscany is so beautiful, and so green and lush, and the people are so friendly, how can you not love it all!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I love the fact that I live only a few blocks from the train station, so traveling anywhere the rail system will take me is so easy and uncomplicated! The city is small enough to be able to get around easily, the wall around the city (approximately 2 1/2 miles) is a wonderful place to walk every morning and/or evening and the people are friendly and helpful. The markets are the greatest, and the antique markets once a month are so much fun, and there are so many fun finds as you search through all of the treasures that everyone brings to the city to sell! It's not far to the sea, only about 20 mins., and Florence is just 45 minutes away, and Rome is three hours by train. Everything is so close, and I have become the best Italian driver!!
