This apartment was the perfect size for 3 adults. It was clean and spacious. It was convenient having the washer/dryer combo in the apartment. We enjoyed exploring Lucca in spite of the fact that we got lost very easily and had to use google Maps to get around half the time! Be sure to follow Sonia’s directions for arrival, parking and finding the apartment. We didn’t and had some difficulties at first. There is a souvenir shop next door that sells cold bottles of water - very convenient. We enjoyed renting a surrey and taking a ride around the walls. We followed Sonia’s suggestions for a couple of restaurants- you must go to Galleria Numero 38 and tell them Sonia sent you for the royal treatment! We also had Cristina and her daughter come to the apartment one night as personal chefs- an unforgettable experience and meal!
We do have a couple of suggestions for the owners: the photos need to be updated. The main reason we chose this apartment was because of the photos of the garden. It is not quite what it looks like in the photos. However we did enjoy eating breakfast out there every morning and having our special dinner out there too. Another suggestion would be to have some basic supplies for the first day such as toilet paper, bottled water, etc. Maybe some sort of welcome basket. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Lucca and Sonia was very pleasant. The binder with pertinent information was extremely useful. There is so much to see and do in Lucca and we have wonderful memories of our stay here. Grazie!
The apartment is beautiful, very clean, well-equipped and set in lovely gardens. It is within a short drive of Viareggio, Lucca and Pisa and longer drives can take you into the pretty Garfagnana region. The weather was incredibly hot and humid during our stay and so the pool was a godsend, especially with an 11-year-old; it was very well maintained and there were lots of loungers and parasols. The internet connection was temperamental but our host was able to rectify this when he was available. There are supermarkets and restaurants within a few minutes. Many other places provide a small set of cleaning materials which would be useful rather than having to buy it all and hardly use any of it e.g. washing up liquid, cleaning spray and a cloth.
A really lovely, spacious and characterful apartment.
