Owner's Response: It is so wonderful that this review should appear, well after Cynthia and her husband stayed with us, as it suggests that the positive memories linger on, and that makes our efforts so worthwhile. Do come again Cynthia!

Lovely Lucca Apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, baby and I stayed 4 nights in this lovely apartment! It was an easy walk from the Piazzale Giuseppe Verdi, despite a torrential rain! The rooms were elegant and comfortable, and our 9-month old baby enjoyed standing at the window. Signora Sonia graciously provided a crib for us, which worked very well, as well as suggestions for where to find markets. We had one night of Lucchese excitement...from what we can gather, the Lucca football team must have won their match because a HUGE celebration began in the streets below the apartment...and then exploded when the players' bus arrived! Horns, flares, singing, chanting and flag-waving! (And our son slept through all of it!) The apartment has a very well-equipped kitchen, which we enjoyed, and overall, a calm and relaxing environment. Grazie mille!

Casa Emma is perfect

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Emma is the perfect place to stay during a visit to Lucca. Lucca is a fantastic walking town and Casa Emma is located right in the middle of everything. Just a few steps from the front door is Lucca's main shopping street where you will find a huge variety of bakeries, clothing stores, antique shops and restaurants. The apartment itself is beautiful. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the kitchen is fully stocked. An added bonus is that the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is large! You can tell that a lot of thought and care has gone into decorating Casa Emma. I have stayed here a couple of times and I've had a wonderful experience each time. It is the only place I will ever stay when I am in Lucca.

A WORLD CLASS ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Emma was a very special place to stay in a very special town that was made all that much easier by all the information the owners provide you when you visit this elegant apartment. Armed with their great list of places to visit, stores to shop in, things to do and introductions to the people in those businesses we were able to live like the locals and had a great time walking a short distance out our door to buy our veggies, bread, cheeses, meat and wine.

The accommodations are world class but in a very comfortable way. While we loved the restaurants in Lucca, we also had some great meals put together from our shopping trips nearby sitting around the table in the apartment. The apartment exceeds most expectation and is located in heart of the city. We stayed with another couple who we had never travelled with before (they rented another apartment in the same street by the same owner Mrs Sonia but we spent some time during the day in our apartment) and the apartment provides enough room to not always be in each other face. We ended up having the time of our lives.

During your stay Mrs Sonia is there to help in any way she can. My only hesitation with giving this glowing review is purely selfish, I want to be able to stay there again and hope there will be some availability.

Amazing !!

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing apartment! It was so clean, light and airy. The kitchen was extremely well appointed and we felt so at home. Lucca is an amazing place with the perfect balance of things to do and quiet activities. Sonia was so sweet and answered all of our questions promptly. We will definitely return to Lucca and I will only rent from Sonia! We loved the location of this apartment as it was close to everything! The gelato place on the corner was the best we found:) Our stay in Lucca was the highlight of our trip. Thank you Sonia!

Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
My mom and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautifully appointed apartment for the first week of June 2012. We were so impressed with the apartment and the attention to detail. The photos do NOT do this rental justice. It is in fact, so much nioer if you can believe that. Ms. Sonia was amazing. So prompt and effiicent and knowledgeable. After giving us an orientation of the apartment and the amazing town of Lucca, Ms. Sonia left us to enjoy the apartment with complete privacy yet we knew she was just a phone call away. I could go on and on but let me just say that the location was perfect. Close to everything. A five minute walk to the train station if you wished a day trip somewhere. Bike rentals seconds away. The kitchen fully equipped. The bathroom fixtures were very high quality, never a problem with water pressure which often can be an issue there. Thank you sincerely Ms. Sonia for an unforgettable week at Casa Emma. Grateful from, North Vancouver, BC
