Beautiful design and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Il Glicine di Lucca very much. The apartment had everything that you could need, including a beautiful, friendly dog.

The location of the property is outside the walls of Lucca, but we enjoyed the 15 minute walk to the centre.

Anna and Gabriel were extremely helpful and accommodating, discreetly on hand if we needed anything.

I would recommend staying here!

This is a great appartment - 1 km outside the walls which is great if you have a rental car

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is really easy to get on and off the motorway to get around Tuscanny if you have a rental car and save the hassle of parking in Lucca.

We used the bikes to get quickly into Lucca - under 5 mins

There is a great local restaraunt for the nights you dont want to go into the center and the supermarket is really close.

The only slight downside is no air conditioning and although fairly cool as it is in the basement it was pretty warm to sleep - dont bring your pajamas :)

Tony & Angela Jones.

  • 5 of 5

The property offered eveything that we needed and was furnished to a very high standard. Although there is no air-conditioning, the apartment's situation on the lower ground floor keeps it cool, without restricting sunlight and our ability to dine outside.

Being 72 & 70 respectively, we were slighty daunted at first by the walk into Lucca but after a couple of days this morphed into a very pleasant stroll, and ,we're sure, kept us fit.

The presence of Esse Lunga Supermarket 10 minutes walk away makes self -catering easy and pleasurable.

The old town of Lucca is an absolute delight, and would take more space than is available to describe it. We took trains to Florence and Viareggio, and found travel arrangements easy.

All in all a great experience, and it's pleasure to recommend it .

An Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

This excellent rental provided an exceptional home base for us to explore Northern Tuscany. Its convenient location, close to the train station, to a great grocery store, to the major highway and to the beautiful old town of Lucca is its best feature. Inside it is modern and clean; outside are two comfortable sitting areas. Anna is a gracious owner. We hope to return.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment on a gated property within walking distance to the old city.

Our host, Anna, was a lovely and accommodating host! The apartment was larger than the photos represent. It was not only very clean, it was quiet, and she clearly was very thoughtful in the small details of providing the necessary equipment/supplies needed if you were inclined to cook.

Their golden retriever, Telos, was an added bonus! I wholeheartedly recommend staying in the apartment while enjoying Lucca and nearby areas. We can't wait to return! Ciao!

Excellent location for enjoying Lucca and day tripping

  • 5 of 5

Modern, well maintained rental unit on beautiful gated property. We found the rental as described on VRBO, spacious and well equipped. It was a short walk to the walled city as well as all services including supermarket, cafes, shops etc. Anna was a most accommodating host and responded to our requests and questions in a very helpful manner. Lucca is well worth exploring in detail and we especially recommend experiencing one of the daily Puccini concerts held in the historic Church of San Giovanni. In summary, excellent accommodation in a beautiful area of Tuscany.
