3 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms (with shower) - big living room with fireplace - fully equipped kitchen - balcony - Reserved parking inside the building included. The apt Corte Fatinelli enjoys a privileged position: you will be sleeping within 5 mins walking from everything. You will live a piece of history and cuddled by the silence of one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. In the heart of the historical center of Lucca (inside the walls), our beautiful apartment is located within the 'Fatinellis building' (='Corte Fatinelli'). This was built at the end of the 15th Century and it still owned by the Sardi-Fatinellis. From the lounge you can enjoy the sight of the Guinigi Tower, the tower symbol of the city. This was the apt. where the famous Santa Zita lived and worked. Our guests have a reserved parking lot in front of the entrance of the building (very rare in Lucca!). Please note that, beside loading and uploading trips, in order to be able to drive inside the walls of the city, you will be asked to buy a "driving permit" at the Municipality of Lucca (costs: from 10Euros/day to 50Euros/2weeks' permit). Inside the apt. you will find all the amenities you may need for a perfect stay (fan, microwave, toaster, boiler, washing machine, dishwasher, USB Key internet acces, etc.). You liked our Corte Fatinelli Apt. but you need other location. We have an other apt. and a B&B in the same building in ROME, so feel free to ask us when sending you inquire.

Great location and staff
Great location and staff
The location is perfect for exploring both Lucca and the surrounding area. Don't worry about the stairs, really no big deal. Lots of space. Luigi and Silvana were great. We had to park in a lot, just near the wall, as the permit to get into the City was not easily available. It seemed like it would be impossible to connect with people we had never met and we speak no Italian at a parking lot. But it worked, and very easily. They provided a map and noted things we might like to see. A baby bed wasn't available, but we put a bed on the floor to make it work. The staff that we emailed with to set up the rental were fabulous. Thank you! Christine and family (two adults, and two children ages 4 and almost 2). We stayed in the end of May 2011.

Stunning Historical Apt, Inside the Walls

We loved staying in Corte Fatinelli ! Luigi and Silvana went out of their way to make our stay and departure as smooth as possible. Yes, there are stairs to negotiate but they are typical of most lodging in Italy. We enjoyed the quite yet very convenient location. The apartment was spacious with plenty of open space for hanging out without feeling like you are bumping into each other. We were two friends who wanted our own rooms and bathrooms. I loved the loft bedroom with it's own bathroom. The first and second bedroom share a hallway bathroom. However, the bed/bath setup would easily accommodate a large family or group. You certainly don't need a car from this location. Lucca was a friendly city, we walked everywhere. The train/bus station was close; we easily took a day trip up to Cinque terre. We would recommend Lucca as a stop and staying in Corte Fatinellie on your Italian vacation.

Lucca and Rome
Lucca and Rome
We are a family of four and we stayed at Corte Fatinelli in Lucca for one week and then the Moka apartment in Rome for one week. Andrea and Marco were wonderful hosts - welcoming and helpful with all of our needs. We really appreciated how easy it was to work with them and to line up both apartments at once. Both apartments were spacious and wonderfully located. Neither apartment has AC and we were in Italy during a heat wave, so we would recommend avoiding the hot months if that would be a problem for you. We will definitely work with Andrea and Marco again when we return to Italy - hopefully in the near future!

My brother, sister-in-law and I stayed in Corte Fatinelli and were very pleased with its location and the security of the car in a private lot. Driving in Lucca is not for the faint of heart, with tourists and bicyclists and some cars and buses coming in every direction. So we left the car parked safely and walked or took the train or bus. The apartment was wonderful, the 51 steps a bit challenging after touring all day, but the views were well worth it. Luigi and Silvana were very helpful and even locals on the street when your maps and the street names didn't match. Luigi's history on the apartment was very interesting and made us feel special. We did go to the church where Santa Zita is mummified. We enjoyed our stay and the accommodations.

The apartment is centrally located, off of a quiet street within a few blocks of many shops, restaurants, markets and Lucca's beautiful wall. VERY quiet at night, so you will sleep well! Kitchen is well equipped, and beds are comfortable. The 50 steps up to the apartment may be challenging for some, but my 89-year old mother handled them fine, sometimes twice a day. Luigi and Sylvana took excellent care of us, recommending several restaurants (Angelo's - molto bene!) and many sites. Lucca is a special place and the Luchese are very friendly, altho it helps to know a little Italian! We took the train everywhere--I would recommend this over trying to drive inside the walls of Lucca. With all the tourists and bicylists, cars have quite a difficult time navigating the streets. Another great thing about Lucca--no motorinis or vespas inside the walls, which are a plague in many Italian cities. Buono viaggio!

Why the Owner Chose Lucca:
We started the idea of renting this apt. due to the fact that we were receiving so many requests by friends, relatives and friends of our friends every year. Everybody loved it! The history of this apt. which belong to my family since the XV century and the efforts and love we put in restoring it were appreciated by everybody. We really know we did a good job every time our guests don't want to leave.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The feeling of living in an apt. which is part of the history of our beautiful town will give our guests a unique feeling. Also, there are not many places inside the walls of Lucca where you can have a reserved car park.
