Car: Not Necessary

Lucca, beautiful city, famous for its monumental 15th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria, the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany. Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town’s finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes’ walk from the apartment. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes’ walk. In Lucca’s winding streets, the pedestrian comes before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city. My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Why the Owner Chose Lucca:
Your Lucca experience begins with where you stay, and we offer you a warm home on the rolling hills of Lucca or in the heart of the walled town. Each of our property is carefully hand picked to ensure it meets our standards of authenticity and warmth, including outstanding locations in authentic Lucca neighborhoods. Find fully remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, comfortable beds with quality linens, exceptional locations, breathtaking terraces and panoramic views. When you reserve, we open our address book and share our favorite Lucca resources with you to help you plan and enjoy your stay – from excellent tour guides to cooking classes, private chefs, favorite restaurants and cafés to the best pastry shops in the neighborhood. Relax, explore, and enjoy each day to the fullest, experiencing a vacation in Lucca that you’ll remember for a lifetime!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
My Philosophy My goal is to offer you an extraordinary experience in one of Forbe’s Best Town in the World by enhancing your vacation and helping you to explore and experience the delights of living in Lucca. Me and my helpful and knowledgeable team will guide you through your vacation planning process and help you choose the perfect apartment for your stay. When you’ve booked, the adventure begins.
