This tastefully restored luxury apartment, found inside the walls of Lucca, is on the ‘piano nobile' of an historic palazzo. With lofty ceiling heights and frescoes throughout, its main feature is a magnificent and spacious living room.
The accommodation consists of three bedrooms; one double and two twins (one of which could be used as a double) and includes two luxurious modern bathrooms (one with a bath and one with a shower) with natural stone finishes. There are oak floors through the main rooms and white Carrara marble in the entrance and twin bedroom.
All the rooms have large south facing double windows looking out onto a small courtyard and over the red rooftops and towers of medieval Lucca.
This exclusive apartment has been fully modernized with central heating, air conditioning, smoke/burglar alarm, WiFi and smart TV.
The apartment is on the second floor and is reached by lift and staircase. It is situated within 100m of Via Fillungo, the main shopping area of the medieval city and is accessed from Via San Giorgio.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you on arrival to provide you with a short description of Lucca, its local facilities and places of interest and to answer any queries you may have.
Located in the very heart of Lucca, all the attractions of the historical centre are easily accessible on foot. You will be able to explore the many wonderful restaurants, bars and shops that are within 5 minutes walk. The main shopping area (Via Fillungo) is within 100m and the main square, Piazza San Michele, is less than 5 minutes walk. You can breakfast in a local bar just 20m from your door and dine in any of the fine local restaurants.
The historical centre of Lucca has restricted vehicle access, however taxis will deliver you to the door of the palazzo. As it is difficult to park in Lucca, if you are thinking about driving here, please let us know in advance. We have access to private parking (additional charge of €10 per day payable locally). The parking is approximately 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
The train station is just 15 minutes walk away from the apartment whilst the bus station is even closer at 10 minutes walk away.
It is traditional in Lucca to explore the city on bicycle and there are many bicycle shops close by where you can hire bicycles to see the streets of Lucca on two wheels and ride on top of its famous walls.
Please note this apartment is not suitable for very small children (under 8's)
We would also like to make guests aware that there is a Tourist Tax payable locally. The rate is €1.50 per person per night up to a maximum of 3 nights. Children under 14 are exempt.
House Rules - We would politely request that all guests appreciate that they are staying in a medieval palazzo with 17th century frescoes, and treat the apartment with the respect it has earned over many centuries.
To help meet our environmental responsibilities, recycling is considered an important part of life in Lucca. Again we would ask all guests to respect this, and to participate in the daily recycling scheme. There is a fully refundable €25 deposit for the e-card used to operate the recycling bins.
