Aquilea caters for the more active tourist as well, with mountain biking, hiking and walking all easily arranged and making the most of the scenery and weather.

Great location in the centre of Lucca

4 of 5
Le Melodie is situated right in the centre of lucca, a ten minute walk from the train station. The accommodation is very good, with everything you need for your visit. The noises from the music school get on your nerves at times and the lack of air conditioning makes it uncomfortable at times, but overall I would recommend this apartment and would certainly stay there again if I go to lucca in the future.

It was amazing, Truly magical experience

5 of 5
This was our second time at Buralla and it did not disappoint. This is such an amazing property, the house, the grounds, the pool, everything was perfect. We had friends fly in from all over, some who had never been out of the U.S. and they had such a relaxing stay. Big bonus, we had Simonetta cook for us every night we were there. We ate like Kings and Queens. She is an amazing woman with such a big heart, oh and did I mention the meals she prepared were spectacular!!! In summary best two weeks we have had in a while and would recommend this wonderful home to anyone.
