                            Had an enjoyable holiday in Lucca. Loved the city and the apartment's lcoation was perfect. The flat was nicely presented and equipped with everything we needed, wifi was useful for return flight. We were very impressed with Sonia's professionalism and helpfulness,she even helped to organize concert tickets. She was also very helpful if we needed anything. She took great care in showing us how everything worked in the apartment and making sure we understood well and we were happy. Such a great thoughtful customer care that really made the difference! The apartment is beautiful and very well equipped, we cooked some great meals with food from the nearby market but mainly ate in the wonderful restaurants as we wanted to discover all Lucca flavours! The closeness of the apartment to both train and bus stations was a real bonus! We traveled all over Tuscany from there. Lucca is a great base to explore the country. We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Very Highly Reccomended!

                            Wonderful location with a short walk to bus and train station. Easy trip by bus to Pisa and Florence! The apartment was fully equipped and very comfortable. Sonia quickly responded to any questions. I would highly recommend this property!

                            I visited Lucca for the first time and this apartment was a fantastic base for our explorations! The apartment was amazing, and looks even better when you see it for real!It is spacious and comfortable and was very clean and well designed. It has everything that you would need for your stay, it was a real home from home, the breakfast basket was a lovely touch as was the weekly cleaning! It was perfect! What made it even better was the kindness of the owner mrs Sonia. She met us when we arrived and gave us advice on where to go and how to get there. This was invaluable! Sonia is a very kind and warm lady and does everything to make sure that your visit to Lucca is no less than perfect! I shall miss her! This is the best choice of accomdation, to make a perfect hoilday!

                            Four of us spent 2 weeks here in July. Our strong recommendation is pack lightly and use the washing machine and drying rack for clothes to minimize weight of your luggage. The kitchen, dining room, bathroom and twin bed bedroom are located 3 steep flights of stairs from ground level, and the larger bedroom and sitting area are up a 4th flight, so heavy suitcases are not a good idea. In retrospect, we should have asked how to use the buzzer system and intercom, as we only had 2 sets of keys for 4 of us. There is a Sidis grocery store a 3 minutes walk away on Piazza del Carmine, and a large Esselunga supermarket outside the walls at 565 Viale Carlo del Prete, a 15 minute walk away. For both, if buying fruits or vegetables, place your selected items in the supplied plastic bags, place them on the nearby scales, punch in the item code(posted on the price tag), and a bar-code label is printed which you stick on the plastic bag. This is read automatically at check-out. Lucca is a great location for a 2 week vacation with its antique fair one weekend per month, surrounding walls for biking or walking, its summer music festival, free Friday night concerts at the botanical garden, movies in the open air in Italian at the Bottini villa, and excellent cooking school run by Chef Paolo Monti. It also allowed us to take day trips to Cinque Terre, Florence, Pisa, Barga and the beaches at Viareggio using the excellent train and bus service. For train schedules see trenitalia.it with English. Bus schedules in Italian at vaibus.it, select Orari e Tariffe; under EXTRAURBANO, select Libretto Orari and download the 6.74 MB 150 page book. It requires some effort to figure it out. For a hard copy, purchase it for 0.50 euros at the Lucca bus terminal. We also rented a vehicle one day for a visit to the summer villas in the hills north of Lucca. We did get lost on the back roads but happened on an excellent restaurant for lunch, Penuta San Pietro in Capannori. A little pricey, but all 4 of us agreed that it was our best meal in our 3 weeks in Italy, and provided us with great views of typical Tuscan countryside. We found that the 3 A/C units, one for the upper floor, one for the the dining room, one for the twin bed bedroom, had difficulty keeping the rooms cool enough to be comfortable in 33 - 35 degree C heat, especially on the upper floor. After the first 8 days, the internet stopped working so we used Lucca's 'Free internet' for the final 6 days, but only 1 hr every 12 hrs.

                            Just a few lines to say what a great stay we had. Mrs Sonia gave us a very warm welcome even though were late arriving due to flight delays and finding the parking. The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the free wi-fi was very speedy with an IPAD. The upstairs bed was comfortable and the aircon kept the bedroom nice and cool and with the shutters closed at night it was so quiet you forgot you were in the centre of a city! Although we ate out most nights we noticed the kitchen was equipped with everything needed to cook a meal. times As we had been to Tuscany a couple of times before and visited most of the major sites we decided not to venture to far and stay around Lucca for the week so being central the apartment was in a perfect location. We did drive to Viareggio which has a beautiful beach and plenty of places to eat. In the amphitheatre there is a lovely deli on the left hand side as you look out of the window where you can get fresh bread, meat, cheeses and very nice filled foccacia sandwiches. If the weather is good stock up with picnic provisions and find a nice grassy spot on the walls surrounding the city. I would recommend Osteria San Giorgio found on Via San Giorgio and L’Oste Di Lucca found just off Via Fillungo for evening meals. Both Osterias only 5 minutes walk. All in all a great holiday and a perfect apartment.

                            This comfortable apartment is in a great location -- short walk to the "big" attractions and to the train station, but more important, close to all kinds of local ones. The apartment is especially clean, very quiet, and very well-equipped. The host, Sonia, was friendly and most helpful. We enjoyed every minute!

                            The apartment was modern, comfortable,clean,safe and exquisitly decorated.Top of the line!! We were met on time by the friendly housekeeper,and were able to make tea and coffee, even eggs for breakfast in fridge! The location is perfect,right in the centre but with easy access to all areas as well as parking lot, bus station and train. The view is a real 'Million Dollar View'! Loved the walk up on the walls. Lots dining restauranta and pastry shops,excellent food..Great supermarket and wine shops within walking distance..Canuleia is the best restaurant that the friendly housekeeper suggested! We would definately like to return and recommend to friends.Thanks! Simon
