Overview

About the property

3 double bedrooms to sleep 6, wifi, air conditioning, excellent location

The Angelo Custode is an old 17th century Building located in the heart of the historical centre of Lucca in the beautiful square named Piazza Santa Maria Forisportam. It is also only a short walk away from the impressive Cathdral of San Martino and the Main Shopping Street Via Fillungo.

The Ground Floor apartment is an elegant spacious and bright flat which has been recently renovated. It can accommodate up to 6 people in 3 double bedrooms -each with its own ensuite bathroom- and has been designed with extreme care. Every room has been painted differently and has been furnished with original antiques and modern pieces.

The unusually large bathrooms are marble with mosaic patterns. The apartment’s floors are parquet. Its elegant and stylish decor is typically Lucchese. Also, every modern comfort has been provided: from under-floor heating and air conditioning to satellite television with international ans SKY channels to a very reliable wifi internet access provided by the national phone company to 6 bikes free to use. Displayed throughout the apartment are fine paintings by Ezio Ricci, the owner's grandfather, and they are all dates between 1906 anb 1959. You will love them!

About COMPOSITION

The apartment is composed of an entrance hall, a spacious living room, a fully equipped kitchen, three double bedrooms (one with an american king size bed and two with 2 twin beds each that can be put together) along with three ensuite bathrooms and a separate laundry room with washer and clothes dryer.

About the Location.

The Angelo Custode is very well located in the heart of Lucca's historical centre. The ancient, impressive walls that surround Lucca for about 5 km, are only 150 meters away from the apartment. The San Martino Cathedral is also only 100 meters away, as are the central Piazza Napoleone and Piazza San Michele. The train and bus stations are each only a short ten-minute walk away . Right out of the front-door a bar and a pasticceria for breakfast, a restaurant, a bakery for local bread and focaccia...

The location is very convenient as very close to everything: 5-10 minutes walk from train station, if not less, 5-7 mins walking away from the bus station and 5 mins walk from a payment garage and 10-12 mins walking from the free parking area (outside the city walls). Groceries and cafe are few steps away as well as the main sites to visited in town, main squares and churches.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this apartment in 2016

Lucca Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the Angelo Custode apartment, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Duccio was so accommodating and greeted us with a complete orientation of our apartment and gifts as well, and he was always available to us if we had any special needs. The apartment was clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location was near many shops, grocery store, restaurants the wall and the train station. We would definitely request this apartment again on future trips to Lucca.

Great location, great hosts and worth every cent!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in this apartment and were so pleased with every detail. If was easy to arrange check in, and were met by one of our hosts who showed us the apartment and gave a jar of his delicious homemade jam. After checking with us, our host also made a reservation on our behalf at a terrific restaurant just down the street, though it is hard to go wrong in Lucca!! The home is very nicely decorated (but not cluttered) and has a comfortable sitting / dining area. A first floor flat was ideal for us, however it would have been nice to know in advance that one of the bedrooms is actually on the second floor. But it is possible that we missed this detail somehow. In any case, we very much enjoyed our stay and felt like we were saying bye to a dear friend when we left.

A wonderfully located property with a SUPER

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place. Well located. Spotless appointments. We were provided jam and olives and pasta in our welcome basket. We made pesto pasta on Sunday night of our stay. Mr Duccio could not be nicer. Made us reservations our first night in Lucca!! The only teeny tiny issue is we could not figure out where to empty the garbage. Thankfully we didn't create a great deal. Lucca is a great find and this Location is awesome. We were sad to leave

SPOT ON

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this flat for six nights while on a two week visit to Tuscany. The apartment was equipped, furnished, etc. exactly as advertised. The owner met us upon our arrival and spent a hour with us going over directions to grocery stores, restaurants and wine shops, including his top recommendations. The apartment is well placed in the city. Walking distances were as follows:

Grocery store - 5 mins

Wine shop - 5 mins

Train station - 10 mins.

Wall - 5 mins.

Bike shop - 5 mins.

Owner lives in the building and this apartment and others have been in his family for a long time. His grandfather was a very talented and apparently well-known portrait artist. Some of his work is hanging in the apartment.

Kitchen was well stocked. Refrigerator worked perfectly. Only challenge we had was with the dryer (had this issue on our last visit to Italy in another villa). This issue is not the dryer but the user (me). Please be aware that the dryer does not vent to outside like most US dryers. So the moisture taken out of the clothes has to go somewhere, and that "somewhere" is a small reservoir under the dryer right at your feet. When it is full, the dryer will cut off and it will need to be emptied. Just pull it out and dump the water in the nearby sink.

On our next visit back to Lucca, this will be our preferred choice for accommodations.

Lucca! Lucca! Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

To really enjoy Lucca you have to stay inside the city walls and this apartment is a very comfortable place to be a home base for your Tuscan explorations. The apartment is very spacious and well appointed. Lucca, inside the walls, is easy to walk around and the apartment is well located and yet quiet. The best part is the owner is close by and very helpful and interested in making sure you have a memorable experience.
