About the Property

Experience Living In This Historic Medieval Walled Town, Lucca, Tuscany

Lucca is full of winding narrow streets, cobbled pavements, ancient churches with colorful frescoes, towers and terracotta roof tops, opening up into typical Italian Piazza's. However, it is a living and thriving town, as can be seen if you go for a walk down one of the main streets any day of the week, particularly at the hours of the 'passeggiata'(between 5 and 8).
If you love a real Italian 'espresso', or a cappuccino and pastry for breakfast, then you will be joining the lucchese in one of the numerous coffee shops, on every street in town. Pick up your freshly handmade pasta, and homemade pesto in the local deli, the famous sliced 'prosciutto', and a bottle of wine from the region in our favourite wine shop, and enjoy the delights of real Italian food.
There are an endless number of restaurants to choose from (which we will personally recommend), and all within 5 minutes walk of your front door.
Lucca is almost completely pedestrianised, which makes it a pleasure to walk around, and to cycle. The walls of Lucca are a fantastic amenity, to stroll around, go for a jog, or cycle pleasantly around the 4 km circuit, whilst admiring the fabulous view of the Tuscan hills, and marble topped mountains in the distance.
Our 200 sqm (2000sq ft) apartment is on the second floor of a typical 400 year old 'palazzo'. Part of the apartment is actually built over a 14th century church. We are also lucky enough to have the oldest bread bakery in town right at our front door, so you can just nip downstairs to get your freshly baked bread, and irresistible 'foccacia' straight out of the oven! We are on one of the most prestigious streets in Lucca, named after the famous 'Guinigi' family of Lucca, and sitting on the balcony, you will be delighted to be looking up at the famous tower of Guinigi 'Torre Guinigi', with its olive trees perched on top.
Although the building is 400 years old, and very characteristic , we've have furnished our apartment tastefully with a modern kitchen and furnishings to enjoy comfort and conveniences of a home.(see photos). It is bright and spacious, and designed for family living.

We have all the services a normal home provides, and also a 52 inch flat screen tv, and a computer for your use with internet access.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We came to Lucca for three months and stayed 10 years! It's a magic place, that captures all the essence of Italy, in one picturesque town. For work reasons we have moved to Madrid for a year, and so we are delighted to share our wonderful property with you!

Why the Owner Chose Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
It is not easy to find a large apartment in Lucca, as its a very old town, with most of the orginal buildings still as they were. So we were delighted when we found this one! It maintains it's charm with large shuttered windows, exposed beams, and high ceilings whilst having all the modern comforts.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The balcony is unique! It sits over a 600 year old church, and over looks the famous Tower , lined with Olive trees, 'Torre guinigi'. You will enjoy many Glasses of Italian wine here, or breakfast with freshly baked bread from the bakery below us. It's my favourite spot!
