SWEET APARTMENT WITH TERRACE, WIFI AND AIR CONDITIONING INSIDE THE WALLS

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Lucca - Casa Olimpia

1 bedroom apartment to sleep 2 in central Lucca, near the main shopping street

The apartment is located inside the walls, right in the centre of the town. It is unusually furnished with extreme elegance and antique important pieces. It is unusually quiet to be in the historic centre as it overlooks a beautifully kept garden. The small square in front of the garden where the Palace of the international music institute of Lucca is located, adds a Bohemian atmosphere.... you think to be in the countryside not in the very heart of a medieval historic centre! Important to know is that beyond your (ancient) door you find everything you may want or need. It is located really a few steps from everything. The main shopping street is in 2 min walking as well as the Cathedral of San Martino and the Church of San Michele.

At the end of the street, some groceries selling local harvested fruit and vegetables, home made cheeses, also wineries and the best bakery in Lucca: Forno Casali. You must try their Focaccia!

The terrace is unique! very large and furnished for dining.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

What a Great Apartment!!

  • 5 out of 5
What a jewel of an apartment in Lucca. My wife and I returned to Italy to visit Tuscany from here but found Lucca and the cozy apartment enough to keep us inside the walls for all but one day of our stay. The apartment is exactly like the pictures. Cozy, clean, upscale bathroom/shower, very nice kitchen, comfortable bed and great music to open your windows to. We are already discussing a return to this apartment for a much longer stay. Mrs. Sonia was very nice and helpful. She has her rental procedures down so there is no question that she is nothing but professional and personable. Lucca is such a quaint town (inside the walls) that we relaxed and enjoyed it very much. Open your windows to hear the music school next door and simply relax!!! Truly a gem, we will return. Thank you Mrs. Sonia!!!

What a wonderful property. The photos don't do justice to this lovely home. Our experience with the owner was painless. She was so helpful before and during our stay. The location was perfect! We frequented Il Baccanale a small wine bar just a 5 minute walk. Gelateria Artigiani just down the street had wonderful focaccia that we enjoyed daily. They also had wonderful gelato . We loved their tiramisu flavor. Other restaurants we enjoyed were Ristorante Gigilio and Vecchia Trattoria Buralli. As we were ready to take a day trip to Cinque Terre we learned of a well keep secret in Forte dei Marmi. On Wednesdays they have a upscale outdoor market with leather, silk, cashmere, and brand name clothing at discount prices. What a find. It is right on the water and we enjoyed a great fresh seafood lunch after a morning of shopping on the beach. We loved renting bikes and riding on the top of the wall. We had planned on doing several day trips during our one week vacation but loved Lucca and it's lifestyle so much we found ourselves enjoying the town and it's laid back way of life. We not only plan on returning to this apartment but are sending our brother and sister-in-law their for their anniversary. Can't wait for our next visit!!!

Good to be back

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Lucca and I really can't imagine staying anywhere else than Casa Olimpia. We last stayed in 2011 and as soon as we walked in to the apartment again, we felt right at home (I only wish my home was as beautiful!) Everything about the apartment is superb, the decor, the shower, the gigantic comfortable bed, it is such a treat to return here after a day's sightseeing in gorgeous Lucca. The apartment is in a quiet area but perfectly positioned for everything the city has to offer, we took a picnic and lay und the trees on the walls and tried a couple of new (to us) restaurants, we particularly liked Nonna Clara's which is just nearby the apartment, lovely friendly staff, good food and reasonable prices. We also liked Il Cuore where I was very excited to find they had a vegetarian secondo course, not pizza, pasta or salad, wow! The real joy of Lucca though is just to wander around soaking up the atmosphere of this lovely, friendly place and before long, you'll feel like a local. E mail responses from the owner were always prompt and she was there to meet us and show us the ropes, a lovely lady, thank you, we can't wait to come back!

THE BEST OF THE BEST, REALLY

  • 5 out of 5
DEAREST FRIENDS, HOW DO WE SAY THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR ALL OF THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES WE HAVE OF LUCCA. THE APARTMENT WAS TRULY A SMALL SLICE OF YOUR OUTSTANDING TASTE AND VISION. EVERYTHING IN THE APARTMENT WAS WELL THOUGHT OUT FOR THE COMFORT OF YOUR GUEST. THE FULLY EQUIPED KITCHEN WITH EVERY KIND OF DISH, POT AND PAN TO SHARP KNIFES, AND CLOTH NAPKINS AND PLACE MATTS. A REAL TREAT FOR FOODIES LIKE US. WE SHOPPED AT THE LOCAL MARKETS AND COOKED 32 MEALS AT THE APARTMENT. WE WERE ABLE TO EAT MOST OF THEM ON THE CHARMING TERRACE, HOW NICE IS THAT. THE BED WAS COMFORTABLE THE SHOWER WAS A REAL SURPRISE, JUST LIKE THE ONES AT THE SPA. AND HAVING THE WASH MACHINE WAS THE BEST, I COULD HAVE PACKED MUCH LESS HAD I KNOWN HOW GREAT IT WOULD BE. THE WIFI WORKED GREAT, THE APARTMENT WAS WONDERFUL TO COME HOME TO AFTER A LONG DAY OF LIVING THE ITALIAN WAY OF LIFE IN LUCCA. STAYING IN LUCCA FOR A FULL MONTH WAS THE ONLY WAY TO SEE HOW ITALIAN LIFE REALLY IS. WE SHOPPED FOR FOOD EVERY DAY, WE WALKED EVERY WHERE, WE HAD LONG LUNCHS AND DRANK LOT'S OF WINE, WE MADE FRIENDS WITH THE LOCALS AND ,MOST OF ALL WE MADE A LIFE LONG FRIENDSHIP WITH THE OWNERS OF THE APARTMENT. WE WERE TREATED LIKE FAMILY. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU GONE ON VACATION AND COME HOME AND CAN SAY THAT! WE ATE AT LEAST ONE MEAL OUT EVERYDAY, AND NEVER HAD A BAD ONE. ON OUR OUTINGS WE MEET SOME LOVELY PEOPLE AND HAD THEM OVER SEVERAL TIMES, THE APARTMENT IS PERFECT FOR ENTERTAINING. WE HAD 2 FAVORITE RISTORANTE'S, L'OSTE DI LUCCA ON VIA FILLUNGO, THEIR RIBOLLITA WAS THE BEST IN LUCCA AND DA NONNA CLARA AT VIA SANTA CROCE 71, JUST DOWN THE STREET FROM THE APARTMENT, HAD WONDERFUL SEAFOOD, PASTA, AND THE BEST DOLCI. IT WAS DIFFICULT TO LEAVE, THE APARTMENT HAD BECOME HOME TO US. WE CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE APARTMENT OR THE OWNERS. IF YOU ARE PLANNING A TRIP TO LUCCA, THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO STAY. WE WILL RETURN FOR ANOTHER HELPING OF THE SWEET LIFE IN LUCCA.

Perfect little place

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures are exactly what you get. The location is absolutely perfect, the bed is really comfortable after a busy day of touring, and Sonia is friendly and helpful. Waking to the music from the school next door was so nice as well. If we ever have the chance to return to Lucca, THIS is where we will stay. Thanks Sonia! Great trip.
