Beautifully Renovated Apartment Inside The Walls With Large South Facing Terrace
A stunning and spacious apartment on the second floor of a historic building. Recently renovated, with original wooden beams and terracotta floor throughout.
The sitting room and kitchen-dining room have French windows which open onto the large terrace and a separate balcony. These face south and overlook private gardens. They are furnished with a table and chairs for al fresco dining, with wall lights for the evenings.
The large sitting room has two sofas and a 40 inch wall-mounted 3D TV with international satellite channels, a DVD player and an i-pod docking station. There is wi-fi internet access throughout the apartment.
The large and elegant kitchen-dining room has as its centrepiece a stunning range, including chimney and original stone sink. It is equipped with dishwasher, electric oven, gas hob, drinks fridge and separate fridge-freezer, washer-dryer, microwave, toaster, kettle, cafetière and cooking utensils.
The two bedrooms each have double (king size) beds and there is a double sofa bed in the sitting room. There is also a single foldout mattress.
The bathroom has both bath and shower and an illuminated mirror, wall-mounted towel rail and wall-mounted and under-basin cupboards.
The apartment is equipped with air conditioning and a ceiling fan and all windows are fitted with mosquito nets (very important in the height of summer in Lucca!).
The apartment is centrally located within the ancient walls in a quiet street next to a coffee bar (very handy for breakfast pastries and coffee!). It is just two minutes from all the amenities of Lucca, including restaurants, the main shopping street of Via Fillungo and piazzas, with the best gelateria in town on nearby Piazza San Salvatore! It is also just five minutes walk from the bus station, 10 minutes walk from the train station and five minutes walk from the tourist information office where you can rent bikes. Cycling on the walls is a must and the best way to see the city!
Please note that traffic is restricted within the city walls and if you drive there you will incur a fine. However there are public car parks 10 minutes walk from the apartment just by the city walls.
Bedding, towels and beach towels are provided. There are also a travel cot and child's car seat in the apartment.

An absolutely lovely apartment, beautifully restored, with everything you need for a comfortable stay in one of the best areas of Lucca: a quiet street but a mere stone's throw from the gorgeous Piazza San Michele with its stunning church. Plenty of foodie shops to browse around in the area too, dripping with local produce, so if you fancy cooking at home, you have everything you need to hand - including a really well equipped kitchen. The icing on the cake is the terrace, a great sun trap overlooking gardens, and worth its weight in gold in a town like Lucca where such an amenity is a rare luxury. Already hoping we can return!
The apartment lived up to must of my expectations, however the apartment below ( you could not avoid passing in order to get to your apartment) was as if s bomb was set off in it and the doors to it were always ajar and would not stay closed. There was a fertile cat living in there and it was using it for its toilet and the smell was unbearable! The table on the patio was so old and rickety that you had to be careful as to where you placed your glass for it would tip over. Other then that the beds were very comfy and the apartment met all my expectations..had it not been for these 2 very disturbing issues I would have rated it at least a 4 star!
Renovated apartment with rustic charm in a quiet corner within the walls of Lucca
Comfortable flat in a quiet area of Lucca. Close to San Michele in Foro. Plentiful hot water and comfortable beds- it was perfect for our family of four.
Cosy, nicely reconstructed apartment in Lucca
The appartment was nice and clean and everything worked. The beds were good, the kitchen was relevant equipped for us, but the only cooking we performed was breakfast. The location in Lucca was good, the terasse was nice, but the sorounding was not so nice. We were 4 grown ups and we had a perfect stay. Tanya met us at the property and was professional and helpful.
We have rented appartments in Italy and Spain many times, this was one of the best experiences.
Nice flat. Good location.

The apartment is as described and photographed. Comfortable, modern, spotless. Whilst we love Italy and the Italians, they can be a noisy bunch. Sometimes, late at night, there would be bangings and loud voices, from the street below. The apartment is ideally placed for all of the necessary requirements for visitors, ie excellent cafe's, good trattorias/restaurants, shops, and our favourite, the city wall. Lucca is a lovely place and you are surrounded by a physical legacy of ancient times. We did have one, in our case, minor query. The rental cost did not include gas and electricity charges. Those items were brought to our attention after we had made the booking. In our experience, that is a first, and clearly adds to the overall rental charge. Unusual, but just something to be aware of.
Just a minor clarification to this very nice review: the 'additional pricing information' under 'prices and availability' on the website states that gas and electricity are charged for according to the amount consumed.
