"We stayed at Casa di Pera for 5 wonderful weeks in October in the fantastic city of Lucca. We were on a 3 month trip in Italy and Lucca proved to be a wonderful base for exploring Tuscany. The apartment in within the Old Walls and walkable to everything. It is in an ancient building but has been updated with modern comforts. It is exactly as advertised and is very clean and tidy. The kitchen is particularly well outfitted which was wonderful since we enjoy shopping in the local stores and cooking. During our stay we hosted several groups of family and friends and the apartment was very comfortable for four. There were several days when our 2 adult children stayed with several friends (we had a total of 7 staying!). While a bit crowded we managed just fine and had loads of fun. The 2nd bedroom sleeps 4 and there is also a folding cot which we put up in the large entry area for our son. The 2nd bedroom has a very low ceiling but is otherwise spacious. No one seemed to mind. Both bathrooms are modern and have decent sized showers (very unusual in Italy). The beds were all very comfortable. While not fancy or luxurious the apartment is very comfortable and the owners, Italian Americans, are fantastic. The local manager, Diletta, was very accommodating when we had several minor issues, such as not being able to figure out the oven. Lucca is a fabulous small city which we adored. The train station is right outside the City Walls allowing easy day trips to Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, and many other small towns in Northern Tuscany. Train travel to Southern Tuscany is a bit more complicated as you have to make connections in Florence. Having a car to explore that area is probably best. We highly recommend this apartment for people who like to stay in "real" Italian towns and desire a comfortable home instead of a hotel."

"We spent a lovely week at Abbacca-la! The appartment was cozy and very well equipped. we highly recommend to book a cooking class with Lella! we made pasta fatti in casa and enjoyed making and eating fresh ravioli and pasta very much. Lella is a wonderful host, she recommended day trips and gave good tips. Lucca is a beautiful town, the area is lovely and the beaches are inviting. We hope to come back and stay at Abbacca-la soon again!"

"We loved our stay in Lucca - and this wonderful apartment made us feel at home. The unit was clean and very well appointed - easy to prepare meals and be comfortable. The location is excellent with great shopping, dining and interesting historical points all within walking distance. Our manager host, Eva, was absolutely wonderful - very helpful in getting us around the great city of Lucca and suggesting the best spots for dining and must-see points. We would definitely stay here again!"

"We spent 10 days in Lucianio and Rosa's apartment. We loved the location and the apartment was great. Luciano and Rosa were very kind and accommodating landlords.
The apartment was bright, roomy, clean and comfortable. There are three sets of windows opening onto Piazza Amfiteatro. The two separate bedrooms and bathrooms afford private space for two couples and worked well for us. There is ample good and free parking a 10 minute walk away. There are many excellent restaurants, bars and shopping close by. Also don't forget the wall around the old city which is great for walking, running or biking.
We made several day trips to Florence, Cinque Terra, Sienna and San Gimignano as well as a lunch trip up into the hills above Lucca. Pisa would also have been a very easy day trip.
Be aware there are 60 steps to the "third" floor with no other alternative, but we found them manageable. Having said that we would certainly love to rent this apartment again if we return to Lucca."
