a sweet december

The antique apartment was our home base in Tuscany. We stayed in December 2013 for 3 weeks, and enjoyed every minute in this charming property which was more than ample for our family of 4, including two teenage boys. Our bed was very comfortable and we liked the painted ceilings and the irregular characteristics that one would expect in an old building. We appreciated being greeted with a loaf of home made bread, some prosciutto, salami and cheese in the fridge, as well as ground Illy coffee as we requested. We made our own coffee in the morning and looked forward to returning to this lush setting every night, rushing to relax on the sofas. We had a wonderful barbecue night all together and it was nice to be both on our own, yet be able to ask for dinner suggestions, have someone willing and able to make dinner reservations on our behalf as the owners are always available over the phone. The owner Mrs Sonia cooked for us the first night, which was delicious and they also directed us to a cooking class at the nearby cooking school, which is a memorably experience. Sonia and Benedetta are wonderful hosts. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Mashall, Thank you for taking time to write the review. It was very nice to meet you and I am glad you all enjoyed your time at the apartment and had great time in Lucca! Best regards, Sonia :)

We've stayed at Palazzo Sant Giovani several times. It's absolutely perfect. The south facing wall, overlooking the piazza, is filled with gorgeous frescos from the 1600s. The wonderful light that streams in and the 16 feet tall ceilings give this apartment the appearance of a much larger property than it is. The combination of modern and antique furnishings fit the newly renovated building (it once of a noble family) and exquisitely crafted apartment perfectly. There are two bedrooms, each with bath. The baths are completely new and one has a wonderful Jacuzzi. Perhaps best of all is its' location, only minutes from the best shopping, food, restaurants, and cultural events in this walled city. We will return often.
Owner's Response: thanks! it will be a pleasure to meet you again!

WHOLE SUMMER IN CASA ST GIOVANNI

If you want to experience Tuscany and Lucca, this apartment is the perfect setting in the perfect town. This property is everything the listing advertised it to be. It is located in the heart of this charming town that features both a wonderful old town centre and a glorious countryside. It is a short walk to cafes, restaurants, the tourist center, grocery stores, bakeries, and the central plaza. It is in the heart of Tuscany region and within driving distance of numerous world class vineyards. It was right in front to the Romanesque cathedral where we heard a beautiful chamber orchestra/choral Puccini concert.
The owners provided a great deal of useful information about the apartment and about Lucca area. The apartment is large, very nicely laid out, thoroughly furnished and beautifully decorated. Everything is well-maintained and it is clear that the apartment's renovations are very new. There was plenty of room for the three adults who stayed there and for an occasional visitor. We had everything we needed. The owner was very attentive, organized, and accessible. I spent in this apartment 2 wonderful months. I highly recommend this property.
Owner's Response: I am very happy that you had a lovely time! It was a pleasure to host you in my apartment!
Warmest regards,
Sonia :)

IMPRESSIVE PROPERTY!

As we approached our apartment, we were surprised at how beautiful the neighborhood was. While it is in one of the nicest areas of Lucca, we never felt out of place. In fact, it felt very safe, and there were many gorgeous restaurants from which to chose close by. The location turned out to be ideal. We found that we could walk everywhere.The apartment is beautifully furnished, updated. There was more than enough space for our family of 4 to spread out. The kitchen is well stocked and can be used to cook anything. We never prepared a dinner in the apartment, but it could be done.The lady we rented from was lovely. She lives one flight up which made it convenient for any questions. She addressed any issues we had with promptness. Even if you've visited the Amphiteatre during the day, it's worth a night time visit. There are many, many restaurants in the area, and the Amphiteatre are particularly impressive at night as are the walls.Don't forget to try the gelato. We became addicted. It is very fun to try out the different gelato places. We enjoyed that luxury apartment very much and we look forward to be back next summer. I definitely recommend this place to anyone: very high quality.
Owner's Response: It is so wonderful that this review should appear, well after you and family stayed with us, as it suggests that the positive memories linger on, and that makes our efforts so worthwhile. Do come again!

Wonderful apartment in the heart of Lucca

  • Review Submitted: 22-Apr-2013

Beautiful apartment inside the walls, well located to see the sites of Lucca. Pictures are accurate, with beautiful, high ceilings throughout. Views of a quiet square and the San Giovanni church, which hosts Puccini recitals year round. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, a perfect place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. Beds were comfortable, and, with limited vehicular traffic, the place was pin-drop quiet at night. Small but functional kitchen, bathrooms are fine, with plenty of hot water (note...no shower curtain in master bath; fine with us, just pointing it out). Our host, Ms. Sonia, was gracious and helpful. Would recommend this apartment highly to anyone interested in a stay in Lucca.
Owner's Response: Hallo! it was lovely to meet and host you! Thank you very much for your kind review!

The apartment is located in the aquare where it takes place the antique market and also where it is located the famous church where every afternoon it takes place the Puccini arias concert.

The apartment is also located nextdoor to the theatre 'teatro del giglio' and the square piazza napoleone where the summer festival takes place. The apartment is located very close to the train station of lucca, in less than 5 mins walking.

In 1 mins walking from the apartment there is a bike rental shop, bakeries, groceries and so on.

The apartments are located in a very quiet square where there are no clubs and shops, so it makes it very very quiet.

The church bells do not work, so it is quiet!
