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.

We had a lovely week long stay here and found the apartment to be spacious and airy. The beds have good memory foam mattresses with quality bed linen, we all slept really well! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need if you wish to eat in. It felt really welcoming to come home to after a days sightseeing. We visited both Pisa and Florence by train as it was much easier than driving. The trains are cheap, clean and plentiful. Lucca itself is an amazing place. Walking the walls with the locals and their dogs, hiring bikes to ride the walls and relaxing with a coffee and people watching are a great way to get a feel for the city. There are lots of great shops and restaurants, beautiful churches and other sites of interest. Lavinia's parents welcomed us to the apartment with delicious Easter cake and a bottle of wine from their own vineyard. They were so warm and friendly and showed us where everything was, and were on call if we needed them (we didn't, everything was perfect!). We will definitely return!

The apartment is very spacious and well decorated in Italian style. The managers were very responsive and any minor issues we had they were there very quickly to remedy for us. The internet was upgraded while we we stayed and was quite fast and reliable after the upgrade - I was able to join online meetings over Skype without any problems. The apartment came with 2 bikes we were able to use and we hired a 3rd locally for the month for our 5 y/o. The ride around the wall is a perfect distance for young ones at about 4.5km and has beautiful views of the town inside and outside the wall. Stepping out the front door puts you in a square with a very old cathedral that has been excavated below the floor to reveal ancient building and mosaics. We stayed during November and towards the end of the month an ice-skating rink was assembled in the neighbouring square which added to the amazing charm of this town.
