"Our home away from home!"
From the moment Lucia picked us up at the bus station in early Jan 2012 until we left at the end of March we felt as though we were at home..and when the time came to leave we did so with mixed emotions. We can find no fault with this rental property and after 3 months there we would know if there was. Lucia was able to arrange internet connection for us as well as Sky TV. The location as mentioned by others is perfect..close to cafes/bars,restaurants,delis and of course many retail stores. We cooked most of our own meals but there are lots of restaurants to choose from..2 of our fav are Leo's and Gigi's ..both nearby. Rather than write a lenghty review if you want more info you may contact me at..email@example.com..and I would be pleased to answer your questions

"Wonderful location, wonderful holiday; return visit already booked"
The apartment is in a wonderful location, just off the amphitheatre in the centre of Lucca. Lucca itself is beautiful, we cycled round the renaissance city walls and had breakfeast in the amphitheatre. The apartment is spacious and quiet with a balcony which looks out over gardens. Lucia was extremely helpful to us and we have already booked a return visit. Needless to say, we would recommend the apartment to anyone.

"Very good apartment, in great location."
I was staying here with my parents and partner. Lucca is a lovey town and this apartment is right at the heart of it, close to restaurants and bars. We had a hire car and it is about a 10 minute walk to some free car parks outside of the walls.
We were very pleasently surprised to find that there were two double bedrooms rather than the bunk that is in the photos. The living space was more than adequate. The balcony was a particular favourite for breakfasts and evening drinks. We self catered most of the time and found the kitchen fine.
The neighbour that liked to have their tv on loudly very early in the morning and also the neighbour who fed the pigeons at about 7am was very annoying for my parents who are light sleepers. But it didn't bother me much and they got over it and no harm was done.
Definately reccomend this apartment to anyone.

"Fantastic apartment in THE BEST location possible"
a great apartment in the very best location.
The holiday was great from the moment we got there. We were met by the very nice, friendly and helpful owner and taken up to the apartment.
The apartment itself is very clean, comfortable and with everything you might need. but more importantly it's position is perfect!!!
The apartment is just yards from the main shopping street and right on the very beautiful antifiatro. while the apartment is very central it is by no means noisey. You can sit out on the balcony at any time of day and listen to the birds sing.
If you are going anywhere in Tuscany I'd say it has to be lucca and if you are going to stay there it has to be this apartment.
I'll definately be back!
So glad you enjoyed Lucca and my apartment.

Loved it! If you want a good value break in Lucca then this does the job brilliantly.Comfy bed, good shower, didn't stay in much so can't comment re cooking facilities etc. Telly a bit dodgy but that didn't matter to us. Lucia lovely, all round good apartment. It really is just outside the Antifeatro, literally about 30 seconds walk and a bar that stays open late (has no detrimental effect on apt at all).
Loved Lucca, we went for a friends wedding and will be going back. We went to Viareggio for the day, and to Florence,both on the bus, you don't need a car in my view unless you want to go out into the hills, and cycled round the walls, which was fabulous, not been on a bike for 30+ years and highly recommend it!
