This is a great appartment - 1 km outside the walls which is great if you have a rental car

5 of 5
The appartment is really easy to get on and off the motorway to get around Tuscanny if you have a rental car and save the hassle of parking in Lucca. We used the bikes to get quickly into Lucca - under 5 mins There is a great local restaraunt for the nights you dont want to go into the center and the supermarket is really close. The only slight downside is no air conditioning and although fairly cool as it is in the basement it was pretty warm to sleep - dont bring your pajamas :)

Happy in Capanori

4 of 5
Stefania's house is well located and in a stunning position with views across olive groves to the mountains beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. It is only 15 minutes to Lucca and about 45/50 minutes to a lovely beach. A good supermarket is 10 minutes away. The only downside for me was that the shower cubicle was rather small. Overall a great place to stay
