About the Property

In The Mood for Lucca is an attractive and quiet apartment located in the very heart of Lucca Historic Centre, a few steps away from the vibrant piazza around San Michel church, one of the most renowned attractions of the city, and close to Puccini’s birthplace which is now the Puccini Museum.

It is a spacious (180 sq m), sensitively renovated apartment on the second floor ( 34 steps) of an elegant 17th century building.

The living area is unusually large and consists of an open-plan lounge and dining area with dining table. The spacious, modern and fully equipped kitchen, connected to the living room, is a lovely place to start your day. A utility room is close to the kitchen. A large bright, beautifully designed mezzanine floor cleverly constructed, provides a second wide sitting room, a perfect area for relaxation and TV viewing.

The sleeping accommodation consists of two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. These bedrooms have original Tessieri floor tiles and windows overlooking Lucca’s roof tops. The apartment has one bathroom with a bath tub and separate shower, and a further half bathroom ( washbasin, bidet and toilet )


The antique furniture and furnishings have been chosen with discretion and good taste and convey a memory of the past. The renovation of the apartment combines modern and antique ,the traditional style of original terracotta tiles and ceiling beams with open plan living.

The small lofty balcony provides fresh air and bright daylight. The colorful decor only adds to the attractiveness of this unusual and well maintained property.

The apartment comes with all modern facilities including air conditioning, washing machine, clothes dryer, dishwasher, mini bar in the mezzanine,WiFi,SKY TV,Home theatre and XBox. Top-quality bed linens and towels are provided.

The location is perfect to discover the beauty and magic of Lucca, hidden inside a quiet courtyard.

The train station is 10 minutes walk away and the bus station even less.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Ciao, I'm Daniela.I'm from Rome. My husband and I decided to move from the beautiful but chaotic centre of Rome to Tuscany fifteen years ago because we wanted to live a better life in a quieter city. So we chose Lucca for its history and its ideal position ,being close to the sea, the mountanis, to Florence and Pisa. Our choice proved really successful. In The Mood for Lucca was our last and most loved residence in Lucca. Last year we went back to Rome,due to family reasons, so now we have decided to rent it as a holiday lettings to people wishing to discover the beauty and magic of Lucca as we did.

Why the Owner Chose Centro Storico (Capannori LU, Italy):
Because it has the comfort of a true home.It is spacious and located in the very heart of Lucca Historic centre but, at the same time,it is hidden inside a very quiet courtyard.Shops, restaurants and sightseeing are on your doorsteps.It transmits the colors and the atmosphere of Tuscany

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Size and space.Location.Silence.Colors. Atmosphere.Quality of furniture.
