A SUPERB BRIGHT FLOURISH APARTMENT WITH GRAND TERRACE INSIDE LUCCA CITY CENTRE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Lucca - LA TERRAZZA APARTMENT

1 king size bedroom, 1 bathroom, wi-fi, airconditioning, grand terrace with view

'La Terrazza' is a rare find: bright, sun-exposed during all the day, airy holiday apartment, located on the first floor above the street level (not a ground floor) of a 13th century palace, in the heart of Medieval Lucca, very close to all tourist attractions and sites as well as local restaurants, groceries and tipical shops to get the real feeling of Authenthic Italy!

The apartment comes with a large and private outdoor terrace bedecked with colourful pots of jasmine flowers and lemon plants as well as a table and chairs, a bench and 2 sun loungers + another lovely balcony. The whole apartment is a beautifully furnished in charming style, laid out along Feng-Shui lines and has got beautiful large French-style windows.

The apartment LA TERRAZZA faces onto a Baptistery's church and it is protected so it is very safe both for adults and especially for children. From its terrace you can also see the sunset, so you can have a very romantic dinner in a total privacy or you can sit and take a cooling drink or just gaze over the roofs of the medieval city in perfect tranquility.

An Extra feature: The living area is equipped with a new comfortable queen sie sofa bed which makes the apartment ideal for those who are having guests or friend visiting during their stay or those who are travelling in a party composed of 3/4 guests.

The bathroom has a grand built in shower with sliding glass doors.

The apartment comes equipped with TV, Wi-fi internet connection, AIR CONDITIONING, washing machine, haridryer, iron and board, microwave, elecrtic oven, freezer, refrigerator, toaster, american and italian coffee makers.

It is possible to book is an expert naturalistic guide that can organize trips in the surroundings farms to taste wine and local products, to SPA, and in the regional park.

Exploring Lucca:: 'La Terrazza' is your perfect pied a terre for exploring the magic of Lucca. This beautiful city is famous for its monumental 15 th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria , the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany .

Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town's finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes' walk from the apartment.

PS THE APARTMENT MAY BE BOOKED FROM ANY WEEK DAY.

The guest will be offered an half day trip to Historical Villas in Lucca or to farms of Lucca Hills to taste oil and wine and see production.

Living in Lucca:: The city is the ideal base for your holiday in Tuscany. Located approximately halfway between Florence and Pisa, Lucca's road, autostrada, trains and buses will lead you to discover all of the magic that is Tuscany. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes' walk. In Lucca 's winding streets, the pedestrian corners before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city. Walk or hire a bike and cycle around the top of the city wall – this is a marvelous way to see the town and its surrounding countryside. The rail station is just minutes away too, making this the perfect base for exploring Tuscany , and for trips to the coast, Florence , Pisa and Siena .

The guest will be offered an half day trip to Historical Villas in Lucca or to farms of Lucca Hills to taste oil and wine and see production.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Your Lucca experience begins with where you stay, and we offer you a warm home on the rolling hills of Lucca or in the heart of the walled town. Each of our property is carefully hand picked to ensure it meets our standards of authenticity and warmth, including outstanding locations in authentic Lucca neighborhoods.

Mrs Sonia purchased this apartment in 2014

we will fondly remember our experience with you

  • 5 out of 5
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone seeking a 1 bedroom apartment close to all facilities and attractions that Tuscany and more specifically Lucca has to offer. The apartment was clean and secure and with 1 bedroom easily accomondated 2 adults. Shops are close by as well as numerous restaurants or you could eat in using the self contained kitchen facilities. The owner and her cousin were extremely courteous, efficient and went out of their way to make our stay hassle free and memorable. This was greatly appreciated since we were travelling from overseas and arriving in Lucca late at night. Any request was handled promptly and without an issue. This apartment was spotlessly clean, well-maintained and stocked with almost anything you could want -- coffee makers, washer, toaster(yes, even did bagels), iron, umbrella, great knife set, silver items, extra speed wifi, bikes, international tv channels etc. and an INCREDIBLE TERRACE. No words to describe our surprise when we first saw it and the wonderful interiors of the apartment. It seems like stayin in one of those luxury homes shown on those fancy interior decoration magazines. It seemed like anything we went looking for, we found. The best part of this amazing apartment was the view -- you just can't get enough of it.
The property and ammenities was accurately described and represented extremely good value for the cost.
The stair to get to the apartment is definitely not a problem and very affordable: just a few low steps. Anyone can afford them including me and my wife (we are in our early 70s).
We would certainly book this property without hestiation next time we visit Lucca and have recommended it to all our friends if they also require a property to rent.

We had the most wonderful 3 weeks of our lives there and we will fondly remember our experience in this apartment. Thank you!

...missing Lucca!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a fabulous apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is equipped with everything one could possibly need, and we entertained friends and family here with ease. The apartment is very large and that was great. The additional laundry facility was a real asset and the outside space was delightful for our dinners with view over the towers and the relaxing garden full of flowers. The apartment lies close to two Music schools and we often heard the sounds of practicing coming floating up in the afternoon. It is central for everything and close to traditional home made pasta shops and bakeries which are less than a minute walking. Sonia is a fantastic host and we can't praise her highly enough. If you ever need a reference for anyone looking to rent that apartment or to rent through you, please use our names.
