Make a holiday villa in the Lucca Area your home away from home

The province of Lucca was in existence as early as 180 BC, functioning as an Etruscan settlement. This Tuscan area is therefore a place with a long, eventful history, evidenced by the abundant historical monuments it encloses. Residents of Lucca Area holiday villas can expect to see their fair share of breathtaking architectural specimens while here, and sample the revered Tuscan cuisine simultaneously. Comfort and luxury are provided in abundance by HomeAway’s impressive range of holiday accommodation in the Lucca Area. Visitors can choose to book tastefully finished villas with private pools and spellbinding views of the surrounding landscape. Exquisitely furnished apartments with facilities such as Wifi and air-conditioning are also available, as are homely farmhouses tucked away in lush gardens.

Things to do

-Roman ruins: History buffs will be hard pressed to find a more fulfilling destination. While the nearby city of Pisa steals away many tourists, what with its celebrated leaning tower, savvy travellers will resist the temptation and instead head to Lucca, which boasts a far richer collection of monuments. Visitors here will be rewarded with the sight of relics such as the Roman amphitheatre found off the Via Fullingo. This centuries-old entertainment arena still lives up to its original purpose, hosting concerts graced by international stars.

-Ancient churches: Among the many historical places of worship visitors can expect to find is Saint Frediano’s Church, known for the colourful mosaic that adorns the top of its face. This is not the only artwork the church showcases, however; it is replete with carvings and frescoes. What visitors will see is a structure built in the 12th century on the site where a 6th-century church once stood. The Cattedrale di San Martino is yet another must-visit church, a real architectural gem from another time. Like San Frediano, this cathedral is a treasure trove of artwork.

-Other monuments: As if the religious monuments weren't enough, Lucca Area holiday home residents will also have beautiful medieval palaces to admire. Take the Palazzo Pfanner, for instance, which is as adored for its lovely, rose-filled gardens as it is for the sculptures scattered all around it. Rather more modest but no less appealing is the Casa di Puccini. As its name suggests, it is where famous composer Giacomo Puccini lived. Visitors will also want to climb up the clock tower that rises above the red tile roofs of Lucca to enjoy scintillating views.

-Leisure: One other way those staying in Lucca Area holiday rentals can spend time is on the Via Fullingo street which hosts a number of shopping outlets. It is where visitors can get their hands on summer wear by Armani and other celebrated Italian fashion houses. After a tiring session of shopping, holidaymakers can put up their feet in any of the bars and cafés here. They can also seek restoration for the body and mind in the Bagna di Lucca spa.

Weather in Lucca Area

Lucca boasts the Mediterranean conditions that make for an unforgettable summer retreat. But even before summer officially starts the weather is excellent for holidaying. With temperatures averaging 23°C, visitors can make their way to Lucca Area holiday villas as early as May. Those arriving in July or August will get temperatures in the thirties and nary a drop of rainfall. Autumn is when most of Lucca’s rain falls.

Travel to Lucca Area

Most holidaymakers destined for holiday rentals in the Lucca Area will jet in through Pisa International Airport which is eleven or so miles from this Tuscan province. Its traffic is mainly made up of tourists arriving on seasonal flights and charters during the peak holiday season. A 20-minute train ride will see arriving air travellers in Lucca.

                                                              Notre séjour chez Elisa a été une très agréable expérience. Nous avons trouvé le gîte très propre et spacieux and le jardin très joli et reposant. L'endroit est bien placé pour visiter les alentours...avec les conseils d'Elise. Elisa et ses parents sont très accueillants, mais en même temps restent très discrets. Elisa parle très bien le français. Bonne qualité par rapport prix. Nous nous demandions simplement pourquoi les bases alimentaires, comme le sel, l'huile, le vinaigre etc n'ont pas pu être fournis. Fernand et Mandy C.

                                                              A lovely flat in a wonderful location

                                                              We had liked the look of this flat beforehand and as soon as we went in the door we found it just as in the photographs - bright, spacious, well designed and also clean! Our hostess, Renata, and her husband were kind enough to collect us from the airport as it was the May day holiday and there were no buses and from then on we found her very helpful. She knows some English but when that proved a little difficult we were able to phone her daughter, Lavinia, who is fluent - the joys of mobile phones! (incidentally the WiFi in the flat seemed quick) We loved Lucca itself and the flat was so convenient, just a few yards to the underpass, left to go through the walls into the old city, or onto the walls for a pleasant walk, or right to go into the local suburb with banks, bakeries, cafés, Esselunga supermarket and more. On our first evening we ate in Al Viale, a cafe/bar/restaurant very popular with local people. We had three meals there and enjoyed all - no pretensions just good Italian food, well prepared and served cheerfully and professionally, all at a very reasonable price. The flat was handy for the station too so we were able to visit Florence, Montecatini, Pistoia, Pisa, Bagni di Lucca and Viareggio. Trains are cheap and the ticket machines have a good English interface. Thoroughly recommend but the flat is on the top floor and some people might find the stairs a challenge

                                                              This was a lovely place to stay while exploring Lucca.

                                                              The flat was spacious, and very well appointed. Everything was of high quality. The beds were comfortable, with good sitting areas in the bedrooms. The ensuite bathrooms were roomy, and the showers powerful and easy to use. The kitchen had everything one would need, lots of cooking equipment, an excellent coffee machine and a huge table to sit around and enjoy a meal. The sitting room was very comfortable, large three-seater sofas to relax upon after a busy day's walking round the town. The flat is situated in the heart of the town, close to the railway station and convenient for shopping and exploring. Some good restaurants close by. We had a great time!
