We LOVED our stay in Lucca in this very comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment. Luciano was an excellent host, not only in showing us around the apartment but in recommending restaurants, giving us a map and tips on where to park when we picked up a rental car. He remembered we were celebrating an anniversary and had a bottle of champagne, fresh flowers, fresh fruit and chocolate as well as water and other snacks. This was the best equipped apartment in our 3 week stay in Italy. It was also an easy walk to and from the train station. The bathroom is very small but did not pose a problem as it was clean and very functional. Our only regret was not planning more time in Lucca. We will definitely come back and stay longer!
The apartment with in the walls of Lucca was just perfect...everything was as described and then even more...location, cleanliness, roomy, gorgeous apartment , and extremely wonderful host Luciano. It was a special anniversary for us while in Lucca and upon arrival we were greater with wine, chocolates, cake and 12 red roses...unbelievable! We would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend this apartment ...kitchen was clean, there was coffee, teas, oil etc for us to use...made our stay here in Lucca perfect.....the best place we have stayed in on our long European holiday by far!
We always research extensively for our holiday destinations and position is paramount for us. Casa Sophie, in the walled city of Lucca, would have to be our greatest find and best value for money anywhere!
The apartment is in a perfect position, just inside the historic walled city and only a ten minute walk to the train station. The wonderful owner, Luciano, kindly picked us up from the train station and delivered us to our immaculately clean, quality apartment which is on the second floor (note for those who have issues with stairs).
The apartment is supplied with everything you would need for an extended stay, including washing machine and dishwasher. Crisp linen, super comfortable bed and a brand new amazing kitchen with high quality appliances.
As another reviewer pointed out, the bathroom is quite small and the shower required a bit of manouvering, but the benefits for us outweighed this.
25mins by train to Pisa, 15mins to Bagni de Lucca and 60mins to Florence are all advantages of staying in Casa Sophie, along with a perfect quiet position in the heart of this walled city. Bike hire, town square, restaurants and bars all near your door.
A wonderful relaxing experience we will cherish.
