I would highly recommend this apartment. I have stayed in the Lucca area on a few occasions and this is my favourite apartment inside the walls. It is a compact apartment but the way it has been designed makes it feel spacious. Given the many windows it has the advantage of a light airy feel, and the views over the rooftops, to the Guinigi Tower are very relaxing, and a lovely view to wake up to in the mornings. The apartment is within Lucca's walls, in a quiet and safe residential area but has the advantage of being in easy walking distance of all the tourist attractions and close proximity to the walls. The location has every convenience, patisserie, bars, restaurants, grocers etc., with very friendly locals who encouraged me to practice my Italian language. The apartment is of a contemporary design on one level on the third floor (vestibule for bike storage on the ground floor). It has every convenience including air con and wifi, and separate bathroom and extremely well equipped kitchen. There has obviously been a lot of thought given to maximising the space and it was a perfect base for my week spent at the Lucca Italian School. Lucca is flat, so hire a bike and become a local. Lovely owner, nothing too much trouble, including reliable airport transfer. In fact In all the years I have been staying in Italy it is the most friendly and informative welcome by Paola that I have received.

We absolutely loved our stay in this apartment. It has a really lovely feel to it - lots of windows, homely, cute and immaculately presented. It was very well equipped, everything works (great air con, wifi speed, brand new appliances) and there were lots of maps/information about Lucca in the apartment. The apartment's in a really great location, right next to the Church of San Francesco and in a very quiet street.
Having done fairly extensive research before we booked, the apartment is extremely good value.
Andrea and Chiara were very good to us - came to meet us when we'd got lost trying to find the apartment (our fault for not writing down the address!); pointed out the local delis/restaurants and even let us send train tickets to their home and dropped them off to us at the apartment.
All in all, it was an absolutely perfect place to stay - so much so, that it was often a difficult decision whether to go out or cook and eat in!
