BRAVO SONIA!! THANK YOU!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is eveything that is promised in the listing, and very much as the photos show. We found it ideal for four. The location was great, far enough away from the masses of tourists but close enough to walk to the 'hot spots' Amphiteatre square', 'antique market' and the new Luc.ca museum of contemporary art which was a lovely walk from the apartment. We loved wandering the narrow streets close to the apartment, dicovering the small eateries and enjoying the quieter side of Lucca. Beautiful violin player outside magnificant church and just the four of us.... magical. The bus terminal is aprox 5 mins walk away, great for daily trips. We found the apartment impeccably clean and all appliances worked including satellite tv with international channels and the high speed wi-fi. The added bonus with Sonia's apartment is Sonia's welcome and true Italian hospitality. She and her cousin Benedetta are great comunicators, emaiing us to let us know there was a train and bus strike. Our train made it through and Sonia and her cousin met us at the train station and walked us to the apartment! Sonia, having shown us everthing about the apartment, took us to the open markets and around Lucca on her way to home, she really treated us like family. Our memories of lucca will always include their very warm welcome. It is often people that make difference between a holiday and a great holiday experience.

Loved our stay in St Giovanni Palace

  • 5 out of 5
D. and I have a terrific time in Lucca and our stay at St Giovanni Palace was wonderful. Perfectly situated, private, stylish, and impeccably decorated, this was the perfect place for us. Comfortable beds, upscale furniture and rooms. There was enough place for the 4 of us: we were all happy! The building was serene allowing us to wander the fabulous walled town, enjoy the sights, immerse ourselves in the culture of Lucca, then return to a quiet oasis. We hope to stay here again on our next visit to Lucca.

a sweet december

  • 5 out of 5
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.

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.

WHOLE SUMMER IN CASA ST GIOVANNI

  • 5 out of 5
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.

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!
