13 Jun 2012
I stayed here for six weeks, mainly as a base for doing lots of wonderful bicycle riding around Tuscany. Loved being in it. Great location. Very quiet. It is up a flight of stairs from the street level, but there are people/floors above. Short, dead-ended street for cars, so no traffic. Wonderful restaurants close by, including my favorite pizzeria/gelateria 50m away. Short walk to the busy shopping and piazzas. Has a great porch off the kitchen, where can enjoy a beautiful, green courtyard . . . looking down at it from the Guinigi Tower you can see it has the most garden and yard space around. And fun looking up at the Tower which is about one block away. Deborah of Lucca Holiday Homes and Isa of Tuscan Holidays were easy to work with. Deborah picked me up at the train station and drove me and my luggage to the apt, which was very convenient.
