LOCATION, LOCATION AND COMFORT

  • 5 out of 5
We felt throughout our month stay in Casa Opera we had chosen RIGHT. First off working with Sonia before our arrival went smoothly and she was always responsive to my many emails with questions. Benedetta the owners daughter who lives with her parents two flights above was always " there" and responsive during our stay. The apartment was clean and the beds are the most comfortable we have had on any of our previous 7 trips to Italy. The. Bathrooms are of good size and modern and updated. The location is perfect for seeing all of Lucca easily or just watching from the windows the street activity outside. Having the bikes come with this apartment is HUGE and we used daily throughout our stay. Any cons I have should be take lightly and personally subjective. The kitchen could use more utinsils....pots and pans, silverware and dishes.....but I am sure most renters would go out more than we did being there for a month.....the slip overs are in need of a good wash or replacement.....a few wall areas need some touch up painting after all the rain this past winter. We would definitely stay in Casa Opera again and recommend it to out friends.

THE PERFECT ACCOMODATION SOLUTION FOR LUCCA

  • 5 out of 5
If you choose this apartment be aware: It can happen, that you spend more time relaxing on the sofa than on sightseeing... There are fantastic views at all day times, you see the local people coming and going, and your are sitting nearly over the cathedral. The only sounds you hear at night are the violins from the church during the evening concerts: amazing!.Everything was just perfect. We have never had such a relaxing city-apartment, perfectly equipped, everything is new and fresh and on a very high technical standard, including TV and dvd player with a lovely collection of classical music CDs, a first class Kitchen and two spacious bathrooms. Bikes are not missing for each of the 4 guests that can be accommodated. It's only a 5 minutes walk (along the walls and through wonderful squares, really lovely) to the Lucca central station and Bus Station and also to supermarkets and restaurants. Living here is very easy and we can fully recommend this location. The owners, gave us a very warm welcome and if we return to Lucca, this little oasis is our first choice. Just excellent !!!!

CHARMING 5 STARS APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was perfect for us. It is just a 5 minute stroll from the railway station, and sits in a fabulous quiet location just within the city walls. The large windows looks out onto the st. Giovanni Church, and it was nice to watch people walking, jogging and cycling past during daylight hours. The inside of the apartment is truly beautiful with many of the original features proudly on display. The air-conditioning is efficient and welcome - certainly when it gets to about 40 degrees outside. The kitchen is equipped well enough - and I can confirm that the large fridge can accommodate plenty of Italy's fine wine and beer. The deposit, payment and key-pickup worked very well - it was nice to finally meet Mrs Sonia - a great host.

WONFERFUL CASA OPERA RENTAL

  • 5 out of 5
My friends and I organised a wonderful weekend in Lucca and we had such an amazing time and this was hugely down to the fantastic accommodation that we had. Believe me when I say the pictures do not do it justice, the amazing space and view this penthouse has to offer are outstanding. We were a large group yet did not feel like it with all the space to absorb us. Sonia and her family were friendly and helpful and the pre and post customer service was exceptional. I would highly recommend this rental and I for one will be looking for the next excuse to hire it! May I also recommend Butterfly Ristorante which is a short taxi ride away and we all enjoyed a beautiful evening meal!

A PERFECT HOLIDAY RENTAL IN LUCCA

  • 5 out of 5
Just a note to thank you for the week in your beautiful Lucca apartment - it was simply wonderful! I am sitting here back at home in rainy, cold and grey England downloading my photographs and wishing already we were back on the fabulous apartment overlooking the charming Cathedral. Everything was so wonderful, the charming owner and daughter were delightful and so welcoming - the apartment had everything we could possible need and the antique furniture and lovely decoration made it a perfect place in which to celebrate my special birthday - it was everything we had hoped it would be and more! We loved exploring the little streets, squares and gardens around us and enjoyed being part of the Lucca community for a short while. We would walk to the supermarket in the morning to get our supplies (the little shopping basket on wheels was perfect!) - we found a bakers shop for our bread and croissants and my husband delighted in the small cake shop where he would buy a different cake for us to try every day! We loved to watch all around the town with families going up and down every day - so much better than being surrounded by all the tourists - we were able to get a true feel for the way of life of the local people. The apartment is incredibly well appointed and so clean. Everything was a delight! We very much hope to return again soon - many thanks once again.

VISITORS FROM USA

  • 5 out of 5
We really appreciated all the information the owner sent us before we ever left California. Sending us directions for the regional train, and giving us bus tickets made us feel at home almost immediately; we would not have been able to navigate our way without them. (We purchased and left two train tickets in the apartment for the next guests.) We really liked the apartment. It was comfortable and clean and well equipped. It was very convenient having everything you need all around you. We loved the neighborhood. It is close to the main shopping street (1 min walking), train and buses. And the open market was convenient and delightful; I bought fruits and vegetables and bread, and even some linens. My husband and I enjoyed cooking a simple meal after a long day of walking, being in museums, and, occasionally, getting lost. One of the incredible aspects of renting the apartment is the owner. She is so helpful, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Both times she came to meet us at the apartment were at our convenience; she never asked us to change our plans to make it more convenient for her. No question was too large or too small. She knew where every little hidden corner to explore was, where to purchase linens, etc. She arranged for a driver to pick us up the morning we left Lucca, at 5:30 a.m.; she was prompt, kind, and professional in every way.I think anyone who wants to experience a neighborhood, rather than a tourist enclave, wants to learn how to take buses and "live" in Lucca, for however long, would enjoy renting your apartment. That is not to say that the apartment is not convenient to all the wonderful tourist attractions; it definitely is (it’s located right in the main plaza!). But it's great to also feel like you can relax and experience "normal" non-sightseeing life as well. The owner knows how to welcome visitors in a way that makes them confident they can be part of the neighborhood, and the town at large.

The apartment is located in the aquare where it takes place the antique market and also where it is located the famous church where every afternoon it takes place the Puccini arias concert.

The apartment is also located nextdoor to the theatre 'teatro del giglio' and the square piazza napoleone where the summer festival takes place. The apartment is located very close to the train station of lucca, in less than 5 mins walking.

In 1 mins walking from the apartment there is a bike rental shop, bakeries, groceries and so on.

The apartments are located in a very quiet square where there are no clubs and shops, so it makes it very very quiet.

The church bells do not work, so it is quiet!
