  • Perfect apartment (well, almost)

    "Overall Casa Valeria was a very good experience. It’s in a near-perfect location for cafes, restaurants, gelato shops, bars and sights. It’s near the wall, Piazza Napoleone, main cathedral, train station and bicycle rental. The location is pretty much ideal but it’s a bit close to a motorcycle parking area and main road which was an issue at night. We’d hear motorcycles buzzing loudly down the road as late as 1:00 AM. I’ll be generous and say, in hindsight, that it added to the European café-culture ambience but at the time it was tiresome. The apartment is close to a small general store (Despar) and 25 minutes to the larger Esselunga. Local bread, cheese, food shops are all over Lucca and these are better anyway. Using the local stores puts you in touch with the Lucchese; delightful, generous people who were beyond kind. Some were initially impatient with my fumbled attempts at Italian but, when they saw I was trying, they worked with me to find the right words and did this with a willing smile. Without exception, genuinely lovely people. The apartment is beautiful, great condition, spotless, exactly as shown in the photographs. The roof-terrace is amazing, whether for breakfast or evening cocktails. One of the best views of the city, except maybe Torre Guinigi! There are 60+ steps from street level to apartment, and a dozen more to the roof. It was challenging for my wife’s parents (both in their 80s) but they made it down and up every day so it is doable. The apartment was comfortable and spacious (huge master bedroom). It had all the amenities but we were disappointed that the advertised A/C was only in 2 rooms (living room and 1 bedroom). Lucca was very warm, even at night. The limited A/C isn’t a big deal; we don’t expect everything to be exactly like “home” but it should be clear in VRBO that the A/C is limited. The agent, Debora, was terrific. She could not have been more helpful. She has contacts for everything and will book restaurants for you. She was professional, kind, attentive, pleasant and a delightful ambassador for Lucca. Overall, I’d recommend Casa Valeria. It’s not cheap by VRBO standards but you get a lot for your money. On a per-person-per-night basis it’s actually amazing value compared to a hotel. Pros: Spectacular roof terrace; Apartment quality, space and amenities; Close to all the things you need; Terrific apartment agent (Debora). Cons: Limited A/C; Close to noisy motorcycle parking."
