Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Lucca - Casa BASTIONE

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms to sleep 4. Air conditioning, wi-fi, sat tv!

The flat is reachable via a square where parking is allowed and it is located 20 metres from the apartment. It is approx. 140 M2 large, but it looks much bigger because of its high original beamed ceiling.

The recent renovation has brought to the light the original colour of the decoration of the old beamed ceiling, a real masterpiece of this flat!

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this apartment in 2013

Wonderful Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Bastione apartment in July 2014. Initially in booking the apartment we had some reservations in wiring funds to someone we didn't know. I can assure that any concern we had went away after meeting Sonia at the apartment. She couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. She showed us through the apartment explaining everything we needed to know along with giving us a tour of the neighbourhood (local markets, restaurants). The apartment and the location was everything we expected it to be and more. Cozy and convenient to so many things. It is a large apartment and it is conveniently laid out..spacious living room and bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Sonia provides a library of books on Lucca and surroundings but also all the necessary information regarding the appliances in the apartment which we found very interesting and informative as well as useful. You are right next to the Via Fillungo and shopping streets are within 1 min walking distance as well as all sights in Lucca. Sonia provided us with a bottle of wine from the hills around Lucca and a nice bar of soap made in Lucca as a parting gift. We recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to this beautiful town.

Clean, spacious and excellent service

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed in this lovely apartment for the month of November and loved every minute. Mrs Sonia was wonderful, arranged for me to have my luggage carried up the stairs (which were not so many actually) when I arrived and left and gave many helpful suggestions. It was good to know she was there if needed. The apartment is clean and comfortable, the living room is great to sit out on, marvellous views from the window of the master bedroom and sunsets in the evening. Very quiet at night and yet right in the centre, short walk away from all the sights. The food market nearby was a boon, 2 supermarkets nearby, lots of restaurants, cafes, wine shops, deli's everything you might need is within walking distance. The stairs were fine - just a few low steps being on a second floor! I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

A perfect place to cook!

  • 5 out of 5
We wanted to thank you for introducing us to your special part of the world and sharing it with us. All of us had such a wonderful time and can’t wait to relive it over and over again when we put all our photos together. We will definitely share them with you. I don’t know if Cristina share recipes, but if she do, I would love the recipe for the Panzella we had during our cooking lesson……I have started looking for a recipe that looks the same, but none of the ones I have found so far have the tuna in them. The entire meal she prepared was unforgettable. You have done an amazing job in restoring the apartment…..it’s easy to see why everyone who come there falls in love with it. Thanks for a wonderful vacation….loved it

great apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Great apartment in Lucca, perfect location for access to city walls and parking in Piazza Sta Maria. Renovated 2005, the apartment has elegant marble floors and tiled bath, antique furnishings and thoughtful decoration, including modern chandeliers to balance the medieval walls, exposed brick and ancient beamed ceilings. King size beds comfortable, plenty of storage, spacious entry and living room, lovely furniture, amenities and cupboards for small kitchen. Located in medieval tower, the kitchen wraps around the wall and is cramped for two chefs; but the design is practical and works well. Located near well stocked grocer, yet Sonia offered to purchase staples for us during Easter weekend with anticipated closings. Bathrooms well designed, master is elegant with tiled walls and glass doors next to laundry room. Not connected to bedrooms, so modesty somewhat compromised! Street noise abates after 10 pm when enoteca closes; stairs in medieval tower w/o elevator challenging for first and last day with luggage to 3rd floor. We enjoyed living there, great historic location and only steps away from piazza and city walls. Bravo, Sonia!

an ideal base to visit Lucca and tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
A lovely apartment, perfectly placed in a peaceful yet very central position. The apartment was clean and had everything to make our stay a comfortable one (we were a family of two adults and three children aged 3-9). We particularly loved the spacious rooms and views.
The owners were very helpful and the information provided was valuable and useful.
Lucca is a lovely destination with amazing architecture, culture and, of course, food.
We hope to return.

Outstanding holiday rental

  • 5 out of 5
This was the first wonderful week of what was our best vacation ever. The apartment was perfectly described in all of the webpage information, the owner was perfect to work with, and the location of the apartment was the best. In a nice busy but quiet area, but very close to the main walking arteries in the town. And walk we did! Everywhere. Easy walk to the Lucca central train station (12 mins) and 5 minutes from a safe free parking plaza that the owner suggested. Easy walk to Piazza San Michele (impressive at night). 1 min walking from the main bus stop. Food shopping was a breeze at the local groceries. Restaurants are everywhere and the food was uniformly wonderful. Everyone couldn't have been nicer throughout our entire stay in Lucca. The apartment was perfect to come home to every evening and rest on the comfortable sofas, read a book from the large collection in the apartment, and sit and listen to the occasional local people go by on the street right beside the apartment. And we hung our clothes out to dry on the clothesline like the rest of Lucca. I haven't had fresh air stiffened clothes for something like 30 years! Don't know if the large flat-screen TV worked because we never turned it on; there was too much else to do. I'm only giving this apartment a five-star rating because ten stars wasn't available. The best vacation ever!

This apartment is a wonderful way to experience Lucca and its surrounding areas. Lucca is still a relatively uncrowded city with many one-of-a-kind shops, good restaurants and beautiful architectural vignettes at every turn. Its spectacular walls, where everyone should have a walk at sunset, are a treasure to behold. It is a city of bicycles, the preferred mode of transportation, frequent train and bus service to Florence, Pisa and the Tuscan shore makes Lucca a very desirable base for exploring this area of Tuscany.
