“Perfect apartment in old Lucca”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely 3-bedroom apartment in a perfect location. Clean, furnished, equipped. Not a luxury accommodation, but perfect for our two couples for our too-brief 4 nights. Francesco and Monica were delightful hosts. Our GPS had broken so we were stressed about finding the place. Francesco's son, Mateo, met us at a gate to the city, accompanied us to a parking garage, then helped us with our luggage to the apartment. Francesco later drove with us to a free parking area, then walked back with us, pointing out landmarks along the way. Remarkable customer service! The night before we left, they stopped by to give us advice about our travels, which turned out to be spot on. Close to excellent restaurants and sights.

“Great apartment in unexpectedly interesting location.”

We stayed here for five days with our four children. The apartment, inside the walled city, easily accommodated us.The owners live next door and were always willing to answer our questions and offer advice. Lucca was an unexpectedly charming place. We enjoyed exploring the town by walking around the walls as well as the many paths and alleyways. Also, because it was winter, our kids loved ice-skating at the temporary outdoor ice-skating rink. We could easily walk to the train station which meant we did day trips to Cinque Terre and Florence. We also went to Pisa. However, we hired bikes from Ride Tuscany and rode there! That was a great adventure! We would highly recommend staying here.

“A truly wonderful experience.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

It's hard to not fall in love with Lucca in summer and the warmth and generosity shown by Francesco and his family made it impossible. Once you come to grips with the stairs you'll find a very comfortable, well equipped, perfectly located, light and spacious apartment. It's in a very quiet spot but we appreciated the double glazed and shuttered windows which can totally insulate you from the outside world, if required. We had no trouble resting and slept-in on several mornings. Even without using the air conditioning, the apartment stayed cool due to the breezes and cooler nights. We loved the layout, with the main bedroom at the opposite end of the hall to the living area. Our family of two adults and two teenage daughter's were able to live well here and really enjoyed the many exceptional experiences we found in Lucca. We sincerely hope that we can return soon.

“Great Place with lots of character”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Since this was our first time in Italy I was pleased to find a place like this. We traveled with 6 people. Two families with adult children. Francesco's place was great. the two baths worked out great. It was inside the walls and walking distance to nice eateries/ coffee places and gelato. I would recommend this place to a big family or several couples traveling together. It was several steps to get to our apartment but I'm 53 and our friend has bad knees at 50 and we didn't have a problem. Helped work off all the great food. We cooked at the apartment and had plenty of dishes and pans to cook. Washer worked great, and hung clothes outside window to dry. It was a great true Italian experience.
