' PUCCINI '... ELEGANT AND CHARMING APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF LUCCA

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Lucca - Apartment 'Puccini'

Elegant and comfortable apartment in the historic center of Lucca

Elegant and comfortable apartment in the historic center of Lucca only a few steps from the city walls.

It is situated on the second and final floor, the rooms of this beautiful 'period' apartment open like a flower: the noble 'Tessieri' pavements act as a union between the connecting rooms: the Kitchen, the dining room and the living room for the time shared together; three bedrooms and two bathrooms where you can relax.

There is 120 sqm filled with light, and a beautiful view towards the gardens of the internal courtyard. It's spectacular to open the windows in the springtime and enjoy the pink colours of the tree in bloom.... to walk downstairs on the walls of the city shaded by the 'century old ' trees of which the colours change season after season .... will be a true pleasure! The walls of Lucca, our special and unique garden surrounding the town for 4.5km, are at 100m. Shopping facilities, museums, bars and restaurants are within 2-3min walking.

Apartment description:: The apartment consists : of an entrance hall, a dining room with a table seating up to 6 persons, a fully equipped kitchen with window, a salon, 2 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, one bathroom with tub and shower, one bath with basin and wc.

Further details:: Lucca is an ideal location for a winter break. The climate is often dry and cold in the winter which makes it a pleasant time for sight-seeing ,and the popular sights in Florence and Pisa are far less crowded than in the summer. Lucca is lovely before Christmas and good for shopping, both in town and at the various designer outlets 40 - 60 minutes from Lucca. Viareggio, only 20 minutes by train or car from Lucca, plays host to the second largest carnival celebrations in Italy. This is usually in February/March over four weekends and well worth seeing.

Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday

“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.

Further activities:: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.

Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.

The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.

Comics: the 2008 edition of the Internal release of the comic, of animated films and illustrations and games marked more than 100 000 passionate fans: not to be missed! Held in October/November.

Lovely apartment in wonderful Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
We are so pleased we chose this lovely apartment. We had a wonderful warm welcome from Giovanna & Francesco, they even met us from the bus station and took us to the apartment. It is in a wonderful location, a good size, very clean and pretty.

We enjoyed sitting around the big dining table (6 adults) in the large open plan kitchen/diner. The beds were very comfortable, the linen was very good quality. The weather turned cold, but there were plenty of bed covers to keep us warm. Heating was extra, but the owners were fair and took meter readings and invited us to look at the meter.

Around the corner is a bread shop, there is little shop selling cheese, water, wine etc across the road.
We recommend you hire bicycles, ride around the wall. We also found a busy and very reasonably priced local restaurant, 5 minute walk, Trattoria da Leo, near Piazza Del Salvatore, plenty of atmosphere. We found Lucca to be one of the nicest places we have visited in Italy and we have been to quite a few cities. It is very clean and hospitable. We hope to return one day and would stay in this super apartment. Thank you Giovanna & Francesco.

Five of us stayed in the apartment in April and were delighted with it. It is very comfortable and perfectly situated for a stay in Lucca. The description is very accurate and the apartment is well maintained. The owners provided a great service and were very helpful with information and car parking arrangements.
We would certainly recommend

Memory for a lifetime!

  • 5 out of 5
My family (4 adults & 2 children) stayed in this beautiful apartment for 3 weeks. The apartment is just inside the wall, walking distance from train station and to the heart of Lucca. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay & large enough for 2 families to live together comfortably.
Giovanna was a fantastic host, providing us with recommendations for places to eat, best bakery, deli etc.
We were staying in Lucca to get married so our time in Lucca was extremely special. Giovanna even help put me onto a fabulous wedding photographer. Thank you!
Lucca is the perfect base to explore Tuscany. We will be back & wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Grazie Mille!

Lovely holiday apartment in central Lucca

  • 4 out of 5
Puccini is a lovely spacious apartment in the heart of Lucca with all the facilities needed in a holiday rental. The accommodation includes three big bedrooms, a dining area and small sitting room; plenty big enough for the four of us - which included two grown up lads.It is situated a short walk from the railway station, where the owner provides free parking if you have a car. Giovanna met us on arrival and gave us a really good outline of best places to shop, eat and some sightseeing ideas. She also helped us book a taxi for the opera at Torre Del Lago and helped us back to the car with luggage. She could not be more helpful! Lucca is lovely - with loads of restaurants, bars, cafes and the music festival in July meant it was lively every night. My favourite bar was Tono Del Boia on one of the main squares - but there are simply loads to choose from! Lucca is also handily situated for visiting all the other places around - Florence, Pisa, Sienna, etc etc... Bear in mind, if considering Puccini there is no lift and there are two flights of stairs, and no airconditioning if you cant live without it. However the flat is nice and airy and there are fans available for any sticky nights! I cannot recommend Lucca enough, and I would love to go back, and would book with Giovanna and Francesco again without hesitation.

Fabulous!

  • 5 out of 5
This was a beautiful and well located apartment which exceeded our expectations. We found the pictures and information on the website to be accurate and the apartment was even better than we imagined.
Francesco and Giovanna were very helpful throughout the whole process from our enquiry through to leaving the apartment on the final day.
We were very grateful to Giovanna who met our daughter on arrival in Lucca at the train station and for providing us with lots of useful information.
Many thanks to Francesco and Giovanna for sharing your wonderful apartment and city.
Tony, Paula, Samantha and James.

This lovely apartment is a wonderful way to experience Lucca and its surrounding areas. Lucca is still a relatively uncrowded city with many one-of-a-kind shops, good restaurants and beautiful architectural vignettes at every turn. Its spectacular walls, where everyone should have a walk at sunset, are a treasure to behold. It is a city of bicycles, the preferred mode of transportation, frequent train and bus service to Florence, Pisa and the Tuscan shore makes Lucca a very desirable base for exploring this area of Tuscany.Special car rental rates with possibility of pickup: at the airport and drive to your property. Possibility of guided tours of the town of Lucca, its villas, and special tours in the countryside. Chauffeur with a 6 seats bus available for special tours in the region.
