Many thanks for your help in making this trip

  • 5 out of 5
My stay at Boccherini Apartment was truly one of my top three most wonderful highlights of my 16 week holiday in Europe in 2014. Sonia is an amazing host and delightful woman. She went completely above & beyond with so many unexpected extras and kindness that I felt so very sad to say goodbye...I felt part of the Lucca 'family' for that little while..including a most delicious Tuscan home-cooked feast..with grappa to finish off with..fabulous! 
The apartment itself is charming, spotlessly clean with all the authentic Tuscan touches of home - including a gorgeous view over the surrounding garden and old buildings. 
I had a car and bicycle so getting around Lucca was no trouble at all. A convenient parking is located in a short walking distance from the apartment. Sonia was very prompt and helpful both in the leadup to my stay and offered lots of local suggestions relevant to my interests. It is a treat to stay inside of Lucca in such a quiet charming place, a little away from all the crowds and experience of little of true Lucca lifestyle but still being in the mos tcentral location.
Quite simply, don't miss this place in your travels .. or the dining place at the bottom of street.. Tordelli to die for!!! I hope to return one day soon..
Thank
Annah

Excellent Apartment for Staging your Move to Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived in Lucca on February 1st and yes the apartment was great! We loved the layout and it was so quiet within the apartment and the garden atmosphere was so quiet. The location was great in central Lucca attractions but on a quiet street that gave us a sense of what it is like to live as an italian which was a wonderful experience.
The apartment has an excellent location. Tourist sites, markets, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance and most bus routes can be taken from within 100 mts of the apartment. Sonia was most helpful on our arrival to give us directions, recommendations and suggestions on things to do.

The apartment is also well appointed with a large and comfortable living room and 2BR and 1 Bath. The beds are comfortable and the Bathroom is spacious and one has large shower. Wi-fi connection was reliable and fast, household appliances all new, lot of sun from the big franch windows. Not to mention the antique painted palace where the apartment is located: we took many pictures of the hall.

We stayed 3 weeks at the apartment and its closeness to the International Italian School made it an ideal location for staging our move into Lucca. This is a real luxury place and what we were really looking for. Sonia was very helpful and sweet and I would recommend this apartment to all of my friends! Thank you.

Garden is a wow!

  • 5 out of 5
WOW WHAT CAN I SAY. PERFECT APARTMENT, PERFECT LOCATION, JUST ONE GREAT PLACE TO STAY. THE OWNER SONIA WAS VERY HELPFUL. EXTREMELY SAFE IN APARTMENT... LUCCA IS A GREAT CITY TO VISIT--- OUR FAVORITE SITE WAS THE PIAZZA SAN MICHELE JUST ACROSS THE STREET, IT IS SPECTACULAR. I RECOMMEND TAKING A DAY TRIP TO FLORENCE OR ANOTHER NEAR BY CITY. ONE CAN EASILY REACH BUS STATION WALKING AND GO FOR THE DAY. IT WAS VERY NICE, THERE ARE MANY CITES. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE. IT IS BETTER THAN THE PICTURES SHOW AND ROOMS ARE LARGE ESPECIALLY BY EUROPEAN STANDARDS. BATHROOM AND APARTMENT ALL JUST REMODELED. THE GARDEN WAS LOVELY AND ROMANTIC FOR MORNING BREAKFAST AND COULD HEAR THE PIANO MUSIC FROM THE NATIONAL MUSIC SCHOOL NEARBY. GREAT GARDEN SOFA TO SIT AND ENJOY WINE. VERY RELIABLE WI-FI CONNECTION. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. LOVED OUR STAY. BEST PLACE WE STAYED AT WHILE VISITING ITALY FOR A MONTH. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING

5 star review

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was perfect for our needs- comfortable and very well equipped and beautifully clean. The situation is very good, close to shops, restaurants and only a short walk to the railway station. it was lovely to have our own garden even if the weather meant that we couldn't enjoy it as much as we liked. It was a treat to hear the music students practising during the day - an unexpected perk of the property!
The host organised everything for us brilliantly - the car from the airport, the biscuits and water to cover our late arrival and putting us in touch with her lovely colleague Mr Calabrese so that we could book a guided tour of Lucca, which we would recommend. Our host always did what she said she was going to do very promptly and efficiently, which made everything happen very smoothly.
We didn't have a car but were glad we didn't . Although there are few steps to the apartment (only 2 low steps), it was perfect for someone with limited mobility.
I am happy to recommend this wonderful apartment , Mr Calabrese’s guided tours and of course, Lucca itself!

Lived up to all our expectations and more!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a long, long time choosing which house to rent in Lucca. We have rented many houses abroad and know how careful you have to be when choosing. This was the only house we found in all our searches that had excellent reviews throughout and no negative comments. Was this too good to be true? Not at all! Sonia's house was absolutely perfect. The pictures on the web sites are very realistic but make the property look smaller, if anything, than it actually is. It is equipped to a very high standard and we found everything we needed and more. The beds are very comfortable and the wonderful Italian shutters block out the light so well that sleeping in is much easier! The garden area and views are lovely - a real treat to wake up to in the morning. The neighbours are friendly but do not intrude so you feel immediately at home and welcome.

Our party was made up of four adults, two in their 50s and two (us) in our 60s. Everyone loved the house and would like to go back. There was room around the table for great mealtimes and lively and enthusiastic games of cards but equally enough space in the house to allow everyone to have some time out.

The location is perfect for travelling. Very easy to get to and from either airport (Sonia's directions are very clear and foolproof). We went to the local beach at Viareggio and also travelled further a field to TorreLago (worth the drive as it's breathtaking, particularly the less commercial beach on the south of the harbour which you may have to ask directions to otherwise it's difficult to find). Getting into Florence and other cities such as Rome is very easy. A short walk to the train station then 50 minutes trip (to Florence) on the very frequent and reliable train and 1 hour more to Rome. We often came home late at night and always found it safe, quick and easy.

The booking, payment and administration were very easy and Sonia and her employees were every bit charming. In fact, we were late arriving due to delayed flights and Sonia guided us around town in her car trying to find somewhere to eat, she also sent us very helpful details of where to have the best dinner and was most helpful in every respect.

Thanks again for a wonderful week.

THE GARDEN UNDER THE TOWER!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is in a perfect location in the ancient part of Lucca, within the walls, and also within walking distance of the main bus and train stations. The accommodation is well presented, very comfortable and full of character. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers and needed 2 bedrooms and this property gave us 2 spacious bedrooms and a full very elegant new bathroom. The kitchen and dining area was useful, although the restaurants nearby were good and in a couple of minute walking. All the rooms overlooked the garden through a very large french window; this gave us a great light and beautiful views from our living room and bedrooms. The apartment is on the ground floor, and of course no steps made our way back to the apartment simply comfortable. Owners were very kind and helpful and gave us useful tips about places to eat etc. Their help and interest in our plans really enhanced the holiday. We felt very safe and secure in the apartment and the streets around the old city, both during the day and in the evening. Having said that, we enjoyed the kindness of strangers many times during our week, including the bus driver who charged no extra, made an unscheduled stop and gave us directions after we failed to get off at the right place. Every where we walked we found places to visit even if Lucca is so small and you can cross the town in just 15 mins walking! There are huge numbers of places to visit within a 2 to 10 minute walk of the apartment. The church oppostite and adjoining cloisters, for example are a gem as are the museum and underground streets at the top of the road. You will need to take a good guide book with you because there really is an over-abundance of sightseeing to do. Our teenagers are both under 18 and many places we visited had free or half price entry for them, as long as we showed their passports as proof of age. We would gladly recommend the apartment to friends and also return ourselves to explore all the places we didn't have time to see on this visit.
