The apartment was clean and everything was in running order. It was great to have sumptuous interiors and a magnificent view over the town: there are no places like this one! Sonia was extremely helpful and prompt. We asked her for some cooking utensils as we had a party one night and she promptly brought brand new items. It was especially nice to be in an area away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist sites in Lucca but very close by to shops and main sites. We have traveled to Lucca previously and have never seen crowds, that is why we are in love with this town. We would definately recommend this apartment to any family traveling to Lucca.

It is a few minutes walk from Barga, which is a beautiful old village with plenty of good restaurants. Lucca is a short drive away, and Florence close enough for a day trip, and there are lots of places to visit in the mountains of the beautiful Garfagnana. Leonardo and Daniella were very helpful but unobtrusive hosts. We would love to come back for another visit.

The walk is about 15mins away to the city walls with a resturant we recomend 5 min walk away. If we return then we would stay here.
