About the Property

2Br, 2 Ba, Sleeps 5 Duplex Apartment In Historic Center

This unique apartment, superbly located in a quiet residential building in the heart of Lucca’s Historic Center, has been redesigned and renovated to the highest standard by its Architect owner, and offers contemporary luxury in an historic setting, as the perfect base for exploring the delights of Lucca and Tuscany.

The bright and spacious duplex accommodation comprises a small entry leading into a stunning double-height fully-equipped modern kitchen, which opens onto a spacious dining room overlooking a beautiful secret garden; a separate bright and comfortable living area with double sofa-bed leads to a tiny covered terrace for that evening drink watching the sun go down over the Tuscan hills. An oak staircase leads to two lofted double bedrooms and a small but perfectly formed bathroom with a mini-bath. A second, larger, contemporary shower-room is off the entry downstairs.

The Lucca Loft is remarkable in its clever use of light and space, and the careful choice of contemporary finishes and furnishings which complement the building’s historic features. Top-quality bed linens and towels are provided, and air-conditioning and free WiFi bring it all firmly into the 21st century.

The apartment is perfect for a quiet group of up to five adults or older children. One of the double beds can divide into twins if required; the living area can be curtained off from the dining room when in use as a bedroom. Guests should note that the Loft is at the top of a four-storey building without an elevator, and so is unsuitable for those with restricted mobility; for others the wonderful light, space and views are well worth the climb!

The excellent central location offers guests an abundance of choice of shopping, dining and sightseeing on their doorstep, while providing the perfect restful retreat after a day’s activities in this gem of a city.
