ELEGANT ROMANTIC APARTMENT WITH LARGE TERRACE WITHIN THE WALLS

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

1 bedroom apartment to sleep 2 with air conditioning, elevator and great views

This charming apartment is located in a very central position, in the medieval part of Lucca, 50 metres away from the Grand Palace, from the Theatre, from The Cathedral and Piazza San Michele - one of the most renowned attractions of the town. Restaurants, cafés and shops are therefore all within walking distance. The bright interiors of apartment Diamante are furnished in a very cosy style with great care for details. The apartment has also been provided with all modern facilities, including sat-TV, air conditioning and Wi-Fi connection. The apartment is located on the top roof floor of an antique renovated palace, and the apartment is reachable by elevator.

The apartment has a large panoramic terrace to have dining outside with great views over the roofs of the town and over the bell towers. A separate laundry room has washer, iron and board. Upon request, the guests of apartment Diamante can reserve a parking space at a car park near the apartment.

I do provide 2 bikes for free for my guests!

SONIA'S APARTMENT CASA DIAMANTE - LUCCA

Sonia's apartment Casa Diamante - Lucca
  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fabulous stay at this apartment in Lucca. The owner was extremely helpful (important as we had additional requests because of our young grandson). It is in a perfect location - so close to the main square yet in a quiet corner. Loads of lovely restaurants on your doorstep and a supermarket which is well stocked. The apartment is really homely - it has everything you need and appliances are modern. Effective heating makes this a perfect retreat from the cold days! Excellent value and highly recommended. Most comfortable bed ever had –Wifi connection was fast and realiable. We're already planning our return trip to Lucca!

AN EXPERIENCE IN THE ART OF LIVING WITH MRS SONIA

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the apartment Diamante in August for 2 weeks and we felt like home. The apartment was very nice, clean, quiet and had everything we could have ever needed. The location was very convenient, close to the main attractions, but away from the crowds and noise. We found a supermarket only a block away and a local market two blocks away from the apartment which was very convenient. Mrs Sonia was always very helpful (thank you very much!). The information provided by her before our trip and in the apartment helped us to enjoy the city and everything it offers even more. We greatly appreciate the terrace which is superb and perfect to relax and for romantic dinners! The bikes provided were great. We ate at Giglio, walked on the walls, wine tasting at Enoteca Vanni, train to Montecarlo (Lucca central train station 5 mins walk from the apartment), bus to Florence and Uffizzi, took a ciy tour with your friend Sylvia from the TI and enjoyed it all. Thank you Mrs Sonia for your kind suggestions and your sweet memories of our visit to Tuscany and Lucca.
Staying in this apartment was an experience in the art of living. I will definitely recommend this wonderful apartment to my friends and I will definitely stay there again if I go back.

MEMORABLE 2ND VISIT TO CASA DIAMANTE

  • 5 out of 5
dear Mrs Sonia, I just wanted to say what a fabulous time we had in Lucca, it
was our second stay at Casa Diamante and it was just as good as the first time, we felt right at home! Many thanks for making our stay in Lucca special again. We love the apartment and the people. Your terrace in the sun made our mornings memorable.
Me and Craig hope to be back very soon! Thanks

SPOTLESS

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful third floor apartment, with a lovely outdoor area. It is very light and airy, and is furnished to a very high standard. It has a wonderful kitchen. The apartment is very well kept, and spotless. The outside area with the outdoor furniture was well used for morning coffee (when the weather was generous!), predinner drinks etc. Its is really just over from the Citadella parking which is OK once you sort how it can work (you can order a car spot for just 50 euros) The property manager is very welcoming, informative, and helpful. We enjoyed our time here and felt like at home and would stay at this apartment again if we were in Lucca.

WHAT AN AMAZING STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
This was a beautiful apartment to stay in. It was very comfortable, 'homely' and well appointed. Located conveniently within the ambient Lucca walls, it was a short walk to shops, local tourist sights, cafes/bars/restaurants, plus very easy access to the train station which transported us to other parts of Tuscany and beyond, allowing us to do day trips to Cinque Terre, Sienna, Florence and Pisa to name a few. We always enjoyed returning to our apartment to relax and rest during our 6 night stay. We would highly recommend this apartment with no hesitation as it was beyond our expectations. While we were a couple, it would also suit a small young family or two couples as the lounge sofa bed was separated from the main bed. Thanks to Mrs Sonia who welcomed us warmly and was very helpful throughout our stay. P & S (The Aussies)

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN PERFECT LUCCA LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
The photos of this apartment are gorgeous, but still don't do it justice! It is simply beautiful! I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the apartment -- it is rather spacious, but still has a cozy, quaint feel to it.

The apartment was very clean and the public areas (elevator, entrance lobby) were spotless too. It included everything you could possibly think of (hairdryer, etc) and even things you wouldn't think of (cushions for the outdoor chairs), but glad they were there!

The location was perfect -- very close to the train station, steps away from the park-like city walls, pay-parking outside the front door (free parking is about a 15 minute walk away). The main shopping area and tourist sites are within 5 minutes, and the best restaurant in Lucca is a mere three blocks away!

This was our second time in Lucca, but first time staying a few nights... and now we have officially fallen in love with the city. We will be back! And when we come back we will be sure to rent from Mrs. Sonia as she seems to take great pride in the properties she manages and she really seems to care that people enjoy their time in Lucca!
