“Central but civilised”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We found this apartment a great size for 2 people. It is located just inside the old walls of Lucca and is easily accessed by car (some streets inside the wall are residents only, monitored by cameras and fines can be costly). There is also underground secure parking at a small extra cost right under the building. The area is quiet and away from the very busy tourist streets but still within easy walking distance. It is also an easy walk to the local markets outside the walls on Wednesday and Saturday.
The second floor apartment is fully equipped, clean and has french doors that open out giving a view on a pretty, quiet garden area from where you can access old Lucca through secure gates.

“How soon before I can return?”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Within a day of arriving we felt comfortable and 'at home' in this apartment in Lucca. The quality of the apartment is great, the location for us was even better. We used this as a base for cycling around Lucca and the Tuscan hills for 2 weeks and were happy to be within the walls, but away from the busiest parts of the Centre. The train is a relatively easy walk from the apartment for day trips to Florence, Cinque Terra etc. should it please you. Directions to the apartment from the owner were easy to follow, Bernadette, the property manager was lovely to deal with. All round perfect place for any length of time you wish to spend in Lucca. Big bonus for us was the parking and the washing machine took the hassle out of the little things.

“A Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed July 10, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a wonderful, light and airy apartment in a stylish modern apartment block yet still inside the city walls. It's clean, quiet,well equipped and very comfortable. A ten minute walk will get you to the Amphitheatre and 15-20 minutes to the station. The area around the apartment is refreshingly unlike the centre and full of attractive streets and houses, little shops and bars and locals going around their daily business. As we were arriving late we arranged with Martin for a taxi to pick us up at Pisa airport which was very useful as the apartment is a bit tucked away and it wasn't too expensive. We stayed for four nights and would have been happy to stay longer. It's useful to know that the couple of little shops nearby don't stay open late so if you arrive in the evening your best bet for food or your breakfast pint of milk is the supermarket near the Amphitheatre. The little shop you find after a left turn onto Via del Fosso is a delight to go in and practise your Italian. There is also a market round the corner on Wednesdays for food and Saturdays for general stuff. The apartment has several gates, doors, and security codes to get the hang of before gaining entry as well as a safe so it's a very safe place to stay. The apartment gives you the best of both worlds; the heart of Lucca and the more typical neighbourhood. We would definitely stay here again on any future trip to Lucca.

“Quiet, well-equipped, modern apartment within the city walls”

person found this review helpful

Our stay in this modern, private apartment with a beautiful view was trouble free. The apartment was equipped with modern appliances, all of which functioned well, as did the plumbing. We were welcomed by a friendly contact, who showed us how the apartment functioned. Both she and Martin were very helpful in advising us on how to get to the apartment from the airport, and remained in contact to answer questions throughout our week-long stay. We were about 15 minutes from the center of the city, and restaurants and access to the wall were both 5 minutes away. The apartment is located in a very quiet, gated area, which made for a very restful stay in this most beautiful city.

“So close you can touch the wall”
Reviewed June 24, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My wife and I had such a good time in Lucca, from the moment we arrived we parked the car and left it there and for the rest of the time we walked and walked all very beautiful. The apartment is well positioned for what ever your needs are and clean, I would recommend this apartment to anyone. A special note the apartment manager Chiara was very very helpful.
Many Thanks Martin and Chiara

“Nice stay in a nice city”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The studio is in a modern building, it is shining new and clean and extremely well equipped.
Given the level of equipment we were puzzled by the absence of an electric kettle. Boiling water on the gas stove is an experience dating back to our childhood.
Another point we found puzzling was either the absence of English & French channels (except Fr 24) or the absence of instructions to access them.
For normally fit people the studio is within 15 minutes walk from the center. For us older
folks there is a very convenient radio taxi ..
Martin and Manuela were not available during our stay, we were received by their friend and
neighbor Chiara Banti. A very kind and nice person who exemplified the characteristics
of the Italian people that we love so much.
