About the property

Beautifully Renovated Apartment Inside The Walls With Large South Facing Terrace

A stunning and spacious apartment on the second floor of a historic building. Recently renovated, with original wooden beams and terracotta floor throughout.

The sitting room and kitchen-dining room have French windows which open onto the large terrace and a separate balcony. These face south and overlook private gardens. They are furnished with a table and chairs for al fresco dining, with wall lights for the evenings.

The large sitting room has two sofas and a 40 inch wall-mounted 3D TV with international satellite channels, a DVD player and an i-pod docking station. There is wi-fi internet access throughout the apartment.

The large and elegant kitchen-dining room has as its centrepiece a stunning range, including chimney and original stone sink. It is equipped with dishwasher, electric oven, gas hob, drinks fridge and separate fridge-freezer, washer-dryer, microwave, toaster, kettle, cafetière and cooking utensils.

The two bedrooms each have double (king size) beds and there is a double sofa bed in the sitting room. There is also a single foldout mattress.

The bathroom has both bath and shower and an illuminated mirror, wall-mounted towel rail and wall-mounted and under-basin cupboards.

The apartment is equipped with air conditioning and a ceiling fan and all windows are fitted with mosquito nets (very important in the height of summer in Lucca!).

The apartment is centrally located within the ancient walls in a quiet street next to a coffee bar (very handy for breakfast pastries and coffee!). It is just two minutes from all the amenities of Lucca, including restaurants, the main shopping street of Via Fillungo and piazzas, with the best gelateria in town on nearby Piazza San Salvatore! It is also just five minutes walk from the bus station, 10 minutes walk from the train station and five minutes walk from the tourist information office where you can rent bikes. Cycling on the walls is a must and the best way to see the city!

Please note that traffic is restricted within the city walls and if you drive there you will incur a fine. However there are public car parks 10 minutes walk from the apartment just by the city walls.

Bedding, towels and beach towels are provided. There are also a travel cot and child's car seat in the apartment.

We loved our Tuscan home for 5 weeks

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly what we hoped for as part of our 5 week stay in Italy! It was well stocked with everything we need to live in the Lucca community and in a quiet and beautiful location that was easily accessible to the bus routes/station, and it was a 15-20 minute walk to the train station fro our longer trips to Florence, Rome and the Cinque Terre. It has umbrellas and beach towels and all we needed for rain storms and trips to the beach in Viareggio. The kitchen was also well stocked with the cutlery, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster and everything else to make breakfast or an Italian dinner. Most of all we loved the patio to be able to enjoy coffee and happy hours on the deck and watch the sun go down. Tanya, the property manager, was the best and she helped us with finding specific things in Lucca and with coordinating outings. Her recommendation of a trip to a winery in San Gimignano for a wine tasting and Italian meal was one of our highlights of our trip. This is a great apartment and will definitely feel like your home in Italy if you take and extended stay like we did!

A Lovely Old Town Apartment

  • 2 of 5

The apartment is within the walls and within easy reach of all the main piazzas. We didn't really cook but the facilities looked ok - the two ringed cooker would have challenged my skills. The shower was great - nice and powerful with plenty of hot water. We left early each morning and travelled around Tuscany using the fairly efficient public transport system. We arrived late evening and as it was a bit chilly we put the heating on for, what we thought, was an hour. Appartently we put it onto auto setting and it was on all day when we were out and about. We were not amused to received a substantial heating bill, after a 4 days 5 night stay..If you choose this apartment, and it was nice, make sure you get all the meter readings at the start of your stay and DO NOT put the heating on. Without the heating bill, I would have given it 4 stars.

The 39 steps to the lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I spent 38 days in David's apt.. and were very comfortable. The rooms are quite large and we had lots of closets and dressers storage. The bed in the bedroom we slept in, I believe is a king size, and as I have back problems need a good mattress. I must say I spent every night very comfortable and didn't wake up any morning with back pain. That being said I have to mention the steps to the apartment. I have discussed this with David so he is aware or our surprise to find that we had to climb 39 steps to get to the apartment. That and the stone sink which someon else mentioned in their comments. I would still recommend this apartment to anyone looking for comfort and all around pleasure with their surroundings. Joan & Robert Osborn, Paris, On Canada

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Both the owner and Tanya were easy to work with. Tanya gave us good info on restaurants, explained the operation of the apartment and set up our transport to Pisa airport. We have used a number of VRBO apartments and this one was the most well stocked we have ever encountered. Between the owner and items left by prior tenants (coffee,wine,paper towels etc) you could function in the apartment without even going to the store. The apartment is very convenient a five-minute walk to the wall, bike rental, restaurants, wine shop, gelato shop and a grocery store. Lucca is a great town. We spent a week there and never left the walled portion of the city. The terrace was nice for breakfast and a glass of wine in the afternoon before dinner. it also served as a great place to dry clothes.

Lucca VRBO Property #1527122 Reservation ID HA-J611Y2 Dates Jul 13-17, 2016, 4 nights Guests 4 a

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely excellent apartment. Exactly as advertised. Our impression was the pics did not do it justice. Excellent communication with property owner and local property manager Tanya with very helpful hints about local travel and resources and support for queries through phone calls and texting. Tanya was very gracious when we inadvertantly broke the key off in the street door lock. Minimal cost was exacted from us for the csts to fix. Apartment wireless connection was excellent. All facilities as advertised. The A/C really only cools the kitchen effectively and in the end wasn't really necessary. With the shutters and widows closed to keep the heat out when we were away in the day travelling, when we returned in the evening the apartment was always cooler than the outside and comfortable. We had 4 VRBO's in our Europe tour, this was the best for our needs (2 parents, 2 teens) during our tour. Lucca is a wonderful place to visit. I reccemend renting a bicycle.

We would most definitely rent this VRBO again.
