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.

Everything you need is there, the beds are extremely comfortable, the air conditioning is effective and very quiet (it was really hot the whole time we were in Lucca and sleeping would have been difficult without it), the sitting room is a lovely place just to relax and chill out while the terrace, with its absorbing views of the town, is perfect for sharing a bottle of wine with friends as the sun goes down, before going out to dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in the town. All of Lucca is within 15 minutes walk yet there is a wonderful foodstore and bakeries for breakfast virtually on the doorstep. We really didn't want to have to leave!

The only area that I found I needed is the assurance that plans are intact and all our needs will be met. On paper everything was 100% and when we met Cyncia everything fell into place. Cyncia was lovely and became the important link to Home and Away. She waited for us in the apartment as our flight was delayed and gave us local information about the area. She was also very interested in us and what we were interested in with regard to our holiday. The apartment is lovely with an excellent layout and so spacious. My daddy came to stay with us the first week and he had his own bedroom and separate bathroom which was ideal. The roof terrace is perfect it is spacious and well equipped with a lovely outdoor table and six chairs and 4 sun loungers. It also has a barbecue which is brilliant for cooking steak on a hot summer's evening. We really used the sun terrace and sat out in the beautiful Tuscan moonlight every night of our holiday. Our next door neighbour and was so lovely. Anytime I met her she was so friendly. I have some Italian as my mummy is Italian and could speak to her as she had little English. The location is perfect it is five minutes walk from the walled city of Lucca and ten minutes walk from the supermarket. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and we stocked up on groceries as soon as we arrived. There is a gorgeous bakery three minutes from the apartment and a baker a butcher and a vegetable shop just around the corner. Our best holiday ever! Thank-you Cyncia for making our stay so enjoyable and for your pleasant, helpful approach at all times.
