Outstanding view

  • 3 out of 5
Lovely apartment with a personal touch in terms of decor. Bed was really comfy and everything was very clean. The view is perfect and we loved sitting on the terrace. The dirt track to the property is steep and bumpy and our small hire car suffered, along with our nerves. It was actually a bit scary driving up and down and is not for the faint hearted (or those without 4wd). We did think we'd be able to walk in to town but that isn't really an option. Bagni di lucca is very quiet in October with only a few people in a few restaurants. I'm sure it's more buzzing during peak season.
