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.

From the moment we were met at the train station we were treated like family. Duccio recommended the most delightful restaurant and made reservations for us and we returned two more times. We were traveling with 5 other couples and the ample size of the apartment allowed privacy when we needed it and wonderful gathering places when we came together. We liked the kitchen so much we cooked more that we were planning to. We have referred my cousins to your site and told them to stay with you when the go to Lucca. Thank you for all that you did.

It is located in a very convenient part of Lucca, away from the mobs, but close enough to the museums and churches to make it an easy walk to the major sights. It’s about a 2 minute walk to the Main Square and the Main shopping street is just at the corner and about a five minute walk to the train and bus stations. There are ATMs and groceries just around the corner from the apartment. The neighborhood is VERY safe. There is a friendly and helpful lovely market close by. The street has several small grocery stores and other shops. My favorite was literally at the bottom of the street. Fresh fruit, vegetables, pastries, bread, local wines, meats and some prepared food were all available within a one-block radius. Some of the merchants speak a little English, and some don’t, so it’s a great opportunity to practice your Italian. We greatly appreciated the outdoor patio despite it was cold in January but we could sit for a drink during the day, we could have had incredible unforgettable dinners there at night and relaxing rests in late afternoon after our shopping and strolls in the town if we came in spring or summer. Many thanks Sonia for the suggestions and all your help! We will definitely be back soon

The villa and grounds are absolutely beautiful, the furnishings are comfortable, and the pool is magnificent. Sonia was a wonderful host who helped us to organize day trips and excursions into the surrounding countryside. She also helped us hire a local babysitter and a local cook who made dinner for us several nights. The views from the villa, high in the Tuscan hills, are breathtaking. It was the vacation of a lifetime, and I will never forget it. I can't recommend this villa highly enough. It is a true treasure.
