"A wonderful apartment in the historic Tuscany town of Lucca."
The Arco apartment is in a superb location at the top of the main shopping street in Lucca. It adjoins a main square with an excellent delicatessen, cycle hire, restaurants, bars and a Tourist information office. It is however quiet, and a superb base for enjoying the town, or travelling to other parts of Tuscany. It is built within the arched structure of the original town wall, and has a quirky layout that gives it enormous character. It has everything you need, including air conditioning and the owner is wonderful to deal with. We have been 4 or 5 times, and look forward to returning next year. A home from home !

"Charming, elegant, very convenient"
I had the pleasure of staying at this charming and elegantly furnished apartment recently. It is centrally located and within minutes of walking distances to all amenities, like shops, cafes, restaurants and even the city's spring water fountain where everyone filled up their bottles. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped with all the necessary items. The owners are charming and helpful. If you are looking for absolute quiet this may not suit you as the chatter from the main street wafts up to the apartment. But it does not distract only enhances your stay in the lovely city of Lucca. My partner and I enjoyed it so much that we hope to return before long. For us it was a home away from home.
