LA CASA DI PERA has been in the Pera family for generations. This apartment is centrally located within the beautiful, ancient walled city of Lucca, Tuscany. It has been completely renovated with new heating, air-conditioning, plumbing, electrical (WiFi included), kitchen, floors, and bathrooms. Designed by native Lucca architect, Maria Quilici, the renovation remains faithful to historic Lucchese architecture, using authentic Tuscan materials.

The main entry on Via San Nicolao is a common door for the building, where just inside are 3 bicycles provided complimentary. From there the private entry to the apartment is up a flight of (20) steps.
The main floor of the apartment has a foyer with space to hang jackets and bags, comfortable living room with ample seating, deluxe kitchen with 5 burner cook-top, oven, dishwasher, double sink, and refrigerator freezer, dining with room for 8 - more when table is extended, and a full bathroom with shower, and bidet.
Downstairs there is a master bedroom with queen bed and private bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed, 2 single beds, and a convertible single bed. There is plenty of space for luggage.

This is a lovely apartment to relax, enjoy, and return to at the end of your daily adventures, which are only steps from the front door!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: About the owners: We are one brother and two sisters who reside in the coastal town of Santa Cruz, California. We were born and raised here, and have chosen to live in Santa Cruz to raise our own children and live with our large extended family close-by. Both of our parents are of Italian heritage, and our father’s grandparents (and generations before them) were born in Lucca. We feel a great fondness for Italian culture, language, and people, and continue to enjoy spending time with our Italian cousins in Italy. Noreen, David, & Cathy (When contacting us, please ask for David)

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I love shopping in the neighborhood, with the butcher, bakery, vegetable, and cheese shops right around the corner. There are relatively few cars inside the wall, and most people choose to walk or ride bikes. The residents of Lucca are so nice! All the shopkeepers I've encountered will go out of their way to help you find what you need. Perhaps my favorite part of Lucca is the wall... it's a treasure! It encloses the historical center of the city and is a glorious 4 km. (2.5 miles) around, with a generously wide walk/bike path, and lovely trees and parks. From the apartment it is an easy walk to either the train or bus station... perfect if you choose to take a day trip to Viareggio, Florence, Pisa, the Cinque Terre, or any of the other wonderful Tuscan cities nearby. It feels really great to return to our Lucca apartment at the end of each day's excursion as the apartment itself is so comfortable. It's a great place to rest, cook, check your email, or read... a real haven! Noreen
