About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Large Windows on both sides of the home make it always sunny and airy. Located in a very peaceful and quiet area, it faces a private courtyard that has space to park your car. You can come to Lucca by train or bus (15 minute walk to the train station), and I should be able to pick you up. The apartment is less then one km to the walls of medieval Lucca – shorter with the pedestrian/bike shortcuts used by the locals. Either walking or riding bikes, it is a wonderful way to see Lucca more like a local than a tourist. And I can help you with information about your other Tuscany travel plans if you like!

Keywords: Located in the town of Lucca, just outside the medieval wall of the historic center, this beautiful 2BR apartment is located on the therd floor of a 500 year-old Tuscan home. This recently restored apartment has all the touches of its original Tuscan beauty, yet it is only a 5 minute bike ride (2/3 bikes available to use, possibly more) or 15 minute walk to the historic center of Lucca. The apartment has wood-beamed ceilings with authentic terra cotta ceiling tiles, plaster walls with original brick insets, yet a modern kitchen (including microwave), bath, and clothes washer. The main large bedroom, with a queen bed and the second badroom with 2 single beds, is perfect for one or two couples or family of 4/5 (5 adding a singol bad in another room, or an infant who needs a crib).

I can give you a car too, if I dont need it, so please ask it me before, you pay just the insurrance, it's about 5 euros each day. But please ask me in advance if you want it so I can arrenge all before.

About alessia

We are a famely of 3. Me, my husband and our daughter 9 years old.

alessia purchased this apartment in 2004

Why alessia chose Lucca Province

The house is a real old renovated tuscany house where our great-great-grand parents lived. An easy short walk to the center is conforteble because you avoid all the problems and cost of parking the car in/near the central city. The courtyard is outside of traffic, just people who lives there can park and arrive in the courtyard.

What makes this apartment unique

A peaceful and nice place to easily visit Lucca and also have a rest. I'll help you with all you need.

Live like a local outside the walls of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Alessia's apartment suited us perfectly as we were happy to be just outside of the town away from all the tourists but close enough to ride the bikes that Alessia provided into the historical centre within the walls of the town. Apartment is clean, comfortable and spacious. We were greeted by Alessia's mother and met her grandmother Liliana who lives on the first floor of what used to be her family home but has been converted into 2 apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floor and farewelled by Alessia who had just returned from a little holiday. Alessia speaks English and is prompt to answer queries. We loved the availability of the bikes and enjoyed riding around the walls and through the town and along the trail beside the river. If we get the chance to return to Lucca we would love to have the opportunity to stay in Alessia's apartment again

super calm zone

  • 5 of 5

Alessia es una anfitriona perfecta. Muy atenta, y preocupada porque estuviéramos lo mejor posible y porque no faltara nada. La descripcion del anuncio es muy correcta. La zona super tranquila, y un ambiente muy familiar sobre todo por la "grand mama" . Alessia is a perfect hostess.

Lucca gem

  • 5 of 5

A very well-equipped 500 year old (updated!) apartment. Great location, with easy access to the walled centre, with a feeling of being in the country. Hostess and family most attentive. The free use of bikes was much appreciated as well.

Lovely, peaceful location. Charming owner.

  • 5 of 5

alessia met us from the rail station and she could not have been nicer.

The appartment is lovely, very clean and has great views from the windows on both sides.

If you stay there you will surely meet Alessia's Grandmother, who lives in the appartment below. She is a really lovely lady and I only hope I am as healthy at 95!

We did not feel confident in the Italian traffic so did not use the bicycles that were on offer, prefering to walk into Lucca and use the excellent buses and trains to go to Florence (Firenze), Bagni di Lucca and Sienna. The fares are a lot lower in price that their British equivalent.

The town of Lucca is excellent for chilling out, all the locals appear to speak very good English and were very helpful.

At the end of our stay Alessia kindly took us back to the bus stop for our return to Pisa (fare is only 3 euro!)

I would certainly recommend this appartment to anyone wishing for a peaceful base from which to explore This region of Tuscany.

Many thanks, Alessia and give our best wishes to your Grandmother on her birthday.

Lovely peaceful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment surrounded by vineyards, beautiful views of the hills yet a short walk to the beautiful gates into Lucca. Best of both worlds for us and we wish we could have stayed longer. Lucca is a beautiful city. Weather was truly dreadful when we stayed and we were so grateful for Alessia picking us up from the station ( and waited for our late train). Form the minute i made an enquiry Alessia has been fantastic at not only answering any queries but also offering help and suggestions. She could not have done more for us and we hope to return for longer next time. Grazie mille Alessia
