About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

CASA CENAMI is ideally located in the heart of Lucca's historic center. Step outside the front door and in less than a minute you're sipping a cappuccino in Piazza San Michele, window shopping on the stylish Via Fillungo, sipping wine in the 2nd century BC anfiteatro, listening to nightly operatic arias, gazing at the striking golden mosaic facade of San Frediano, photographing panoramics atop the Guinigi tower, delighting in the tastes of the countless wonderful Lucca restaurants, or taking an afternoon stroll, bike ride or jog around the 16th century walls encircling Lucca's centro storico. At the end of the day, return to the comfort of Casa Cenami where the thick walls keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.

Our flat is a two level apartment on the 2nd floor of an historic, well-cared for building. All the charm of past centuries: beamed ceilings; hand-crafted Lucca floor tiles that have been maintained but coupled with modern comfort and convenience. We provide free wireless so you can share your experiences with friends and family back home. An additional bathroom w/shower was added upstairs in 2011 to allow a bathroom & shower for each main bedroom. The apartment is ideal for 2 couples. A gourmet, fully equipped gas stove kitchen allows you to try out local produce and products. The two bedrooms both have a queen size beds and a small twin bed is off the upstairs bedroom. Antiques we purchased from Lucca's monthly antiques market outside our front door adorn the space but comfy couches allow for quiet afternoon naps. There's a washing machine, iron & ironing board upstairs. All linens and towels are provided. Plus we provide 2 bicycles to explore the ally ways and walls of Lucca.


CASA CENAMI allows for endless day trips. Catch the train, bus or drive to coastal Cinque Terre, the leaning tower of Pisa, the marble mining mecca of Pietrasanta, the palio horse races in Siena or other Tuscan hillside towns, miles of wine and olive oil routes and Florence is only 45 min drive away.

Getting to Lucca is easy. Fly direct from USA to Pisa. Catch a 25 min bus that goes direct from Pisa airport to inside the walls of Lucca. Then within a 5 min walk, you're home. Or fly into Florence and catch the bus or train to Lucca - transport here is easy.

Check out two Lucca iPhone apps: 'Enjoy Lucca' or 'The Tuscan Magazine'. Both available for download on iPhone and iPad.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a filmmaker and Karen is an award-winning photographer. Her photographs from around the world hang on our walls. Both of us use Casa Cenami as a getaway, a place to think, write, relax and get rejuvenated.

Why the Owner Chose Centro Storico (Capannori LU, Italy):
Lucca is the ideal location. We can fly into Pisa and in 30 minutes by bus we're in Lucca. Or we can take the train or drive to Florence in under an hour. Public transport gives us access to the famous Cinque Terre region, medieval Sienna & other Tuscan hill towns, sunbathing on the Mediterranean coast, or skiing and it's all within a hour or two.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When we're in Lucca, we love to go on wine and olive oil tours & tastings, dine al fresco in one of the many fantastic Lucca restaurants, pick up fresh porcini mushrooms or truffles with hand-made pasta to cook at home or check out the stalls at the monthly art market outside our front door. There's always a concert going on in one of the piazzas or churches plus art & photo exhibitions. And beyond that, just strolling the ancient walls always brings a serenity to the day.
