Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Most of our guests, ( and many of them came back several times) loved our apartment because of the feeling of being in a family home, more than just in a tourist apartment. It was our family home before moving to the country, and we still love it.
The apartment is located close to Via Fillungo, the main tourist road within the walls of Lucca, but still in a quiet area.
Train and bus stations are not far away (max 20 min walking) and there are very good connections to Florence (50 min by bus), Pisa (less than 20 min) and many other interesting destinations in Toscana.
Cinque Terre is not too far away, you can get there by train (that is the only way!) in about an hour and a half.
But we really hope you will spend part of your holiday just walking around and realizing that Lucca by itself is one of the best towns to visit in Toscana, and one of the best for good food and good wine.
Music lovers too will enjoy staying in the town of the birth of Giacomo Puccini and his concerts are performed in Lucca almost daily throughout the summer season.

Private parking is not usually available within the walls of Lucca, however there is public parking within 100 metres for a fee within the walls or, there is free safe parking just outside the walled area of the town.
We advise all guests that we cannot consider the apartment suitable for wheelchair users or restricted mobility guests, because of the stairs to the apartment which are very steep.
Whenever possible I am happy to collect for free our guests flying into Pisa upon their arrival at the airport.
The Tuscany region
Books have been written about Tuscany, probably the Italian area most visited by foreign tourists. Toscana is famous for its incomparable artistic treasures embedded in beautiful natural surroundings.
Lucca province, in the North West part of Toscana, is close to Pisa and Liguria (Cinque Terre) an area of outstanding beauty.
Lucca province includes both a beach area and a mountain one.
Just 20 minutes away from Lucca you will find the famous Versilias beaches, while in the North the Garfagnana mountains area is well worth a visit.
Wiki can be a good starting point for information about both areas ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Versilia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garfagnana)
During the last two decades Lucca became one of the most frequented destinations in Toscana. It is difficult to describe the charm and beauty of the Lucca area, a starting point may be to look on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucca.
I would describe Lucca as a charming town and not just a tourist destination as unfortunately many Toscana towns have become.
You are sure to enjoy our way of life and probably, as many of our guests have already done, you will give up some of your plans to visit destinations around Lucca and will simply enjoy spending time walking in town, having an espresso or a glass of local wine in one of our many comfortable bars, relaxing and thinking about the day.
