the charm of Casa Orto

  • 5 out of 5
My home base for the 4 weeks I spent in Tuscany was beautiful Lucca. It truly is a hidden gem & a perfect base for those without a car. I stayed in the beautiful Casa Orto and I cannot wait to get back. My easy train ride from Roma Termini station to Lucca was capped off by a warm welcome by Sonia (one of the owners) who whisked me off to my apartment rental. Although the train station is only a 7/8 minute walk, it was lovely to picked up by car with my luggage. Sonia and Cristina took great care of me & were quick to address any questions or requests I had. The apartment features a large kitchen & open living rooms. Both bedrooms are a nice size & the linens were clean & comfortable. The wifi was great for updating my blog about Italy & I used the great washing machine and the dryer a lot so that I could pack lighter. Sonia and Cristina have supplied me with all of the comforts of home; including dishes, cookware etc... just pack your clothes & forget your troubles in Lucca. This apartment has the most incredible patio & I spent numerous hours sipping wine & enjoying my patio with friends. What I loved most about it was its central location. It was a quick walk to espresso bars, restaurants & shops, not to mention the numerous historical & religious sites all throughout Lucca. My favorite spot was looking out over the square while sipping coffee near the Caffè Dele Mura (on the walls). A walk to the walls & you are rewarded with a breathtaking view, not to mention great exercise for justifying all those gelatos you will want. The people of Lucca are so nice & welcoming, but you would do yourself well to learn at least a rudimentary amount of Italian. If not just out of respect for the Italian people, but also to help you feel more at ease. You will find that in most of the small hill towns not much English is spoken. Honestly though, after the culture shock of OVER touristy Rome....the beauty & simplicity of Lucca is so refreshing. The food of Lucca is incredible & beautifully simple. As a Chef I was overwhelmed by the freshness of produce, salamis & pastas. The wines of this region are incredible & inexpensive. As a solo female traveler I must say I felt perfectly safe in Lucca. If you If you are a "Slow Traveler" & you like leisurely paced meals & environs, then Lucca is perfect place to experience the beauty of Tuscany. I'm already planning my trip back with Sonia next summer!

The perfect place to stay in Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
We love Lucca, and to tell the truth I am a little bit in love with Sonia and her handsome and helpful son! Pushing my mother mother's wheelchair to Ristorante Giglio will be one of my favourite memories of Sonia and our stay here at her wonderful apartment. It is a beautiful apartment with wonderful natural light and gorgeous terrace. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable - great for larger parties who want some privacy. The location is excellent - very close to the city walls and a few steps from the shopping streets and the grocery stores but in a peaceful corner. And the Restaurant Giulio Pelleria (excellent authentic local cuisine). Sonia is extremely helpful, friendly and responsive to the needs of guests - we HIGHLY recommend Sonia and her company for a memorable home away from home. This was the 4th year some of us have stayed in Lucca and rented through this charming lady - perfetto!!! We intend to live in Lucca some day, at least for part of each year. Until then … Ciao!

WE ENJOYED THE TERRACE VERY MUCH!

  • 5 out of 5
This home was incredible. The pictures do not do it justice.. The house was incredibly spacious and immaculate. We had a lovely spacious terrace to eat and have drinks under the sun. Sonia provided a luxury outdoor sofa with cushions and more outdoor decorations which we were not expecting! And we had plenty of space. It had a well equiped kitchen, comfy beds and a gorgeous bathroom and it was one of the best places we stayed at. The area was charming and quiet and had a park nearby for the kids to play. Sonia was fantastic and I enjoyed her very much. She provided an excellent customer care and met us on time at arrival, let us feel comfortable and at ease, played with our daughter, answered promptly to all our questions and provided us with receipt of the rental. Everything worked great. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Lucca and if we ever return this would be our first choice to stay!

Sonia provided a warm and prompt customer care!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic stay here in March 2014 for 2 weeks, the apartment is very central, easy walking distance to just about all of the major sites, shops and some great restaurants. We loved the location, the equipment provided and the apartment itself. The rooms were comfortable and the apartment beautiful! We also had a great meal at the restaurant down the street - one of our best in Italy! Also, dealing with Sonia's company was a pleasure: she provided a prompt, reliable and warm customer service. And we found the apartment spacious safe and secure. Highly recommended.

THANK YOU SONIA FOR HOSTING US

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and 17 year old son enjoyed this lovely apartment super close to the bus stop and a well-stocked grocery store. It was close to all major attractions within a two minutes walk, but away from the hustle and bustle so we could relax after a day of touring and shows. The security was excellent and we appreciated the helpful concierges.

The kitchen was well equipped and I liked the fact that there were several dishtowels in addition to a bag of paper towels. The dishwasher ran quietly, too! Clothes dryer was perfect being there in the winter season.

Everything was sparkling clean and fresh, the beds were comfortable with nice white bedding (mattresses on the firm side which I like.)

We made good use of the extensive library of tour guide books, and enjoyed the large dining room table because we could spread out all our books and maps and still have room for our plates when we took our meals at home!

The bikes were so appreciated by all especially for to ride up on the walls in the sunny days. Being there for over a month, we asked Sonia recommendation about a good gym. She introduced us to her personal trainers at her gym (Ego gym the best place in Lucca) and we were treated in a very special way. We went there by bike almost everyday (just a 10 min ride) well worth it for the extensive equipment, dry sauna, steam room and even an aromatherapy room with heated walls and fiberoptic lights. Soooo relaxing after a workout.

I did an extensive search for accommodations, and having no sense of the layout of Lucca nor the exact location of the various apartments, I'm pleased to say that Sonia’s apartment exceeded my expectations. It was a great fit for our family.
