This is a very spacious apartment and was the perfect base for our two days in Lucca. Paola was easy to contact and her son very helpful when he showed us the apartment. The city of Lucca is beautiful and we would highly recommend visiting the city and also staying in this lovely apartment. Our children particularly loved the cycle around the city walls.
We had a fantastic time in Lucca. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need (including a hairdryer!). The terrace is lovely for dining outside or a glass of wine in the evening. The apartment is very central but on a quiet street. It was great having so much space. You are a stone's throw from great cafes, restaurants and shops. We ate VERY well in Lucca! It was easy to book and the family who own it were very helpful. There is a small supermarket around the corner (it does great olives at the deli counter) as well as a bike rental place. I would highly recommend cycling around the walls.
Lucca is a beautiful town, with so much to see. It's great for wandering about and getting lost in side streets and cafes. The station is only a 10 min walk - so we visited Florence and Pisa (get off at Pisa San Rossore as the Leaning Tower is a short walk. Pisa Centrale station is pretty unpleasant and much further away). The cafe/patisserie across the road from the station in Lucca is very good - we had breakfast here a few mornings before taking the train (they also do 'to go' if you ask).
We'll definitely be back.
We were very happy with the apartment which was very central, in traditional style but with every modern convenience. Serena kept in touch by phone to arrange our arrival and took time to talk through things to see and do locally and made some great recommendations of places to eat. The apartment is thoughtfully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay and Lucca is a lovely relaxed town to use as a base to explore busier places like Florence, especially if you have children who need some down time to relax on the walls after siteseeing days.
