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.

Owner very easy to get on with...happy to help at all times.. definetly need a car as no supermarket or small shops to hand. Kitchen could better equipped with more bowls and mugs. All pillows rather hard and we felt each bed should have at least 2. We enjoyed our stay..visited the hills,lovely Lucca and by train to a very busy Florence .

Chosen for its accommodation, pool and location close to Pisa and Lucca this period villa with its stunning mountain backdrop on the edge of the town of Camaiore lived up to all our expectations. Greeted by the owners on arrival, our limited Italian and English jointly allowed us to understand the intricacies of the Italian rubbish recycling system, electrics, alarms,Wi-fi, pool and electric gates with "Phone Sonia" as the default when something unexpected needed to be explained! The accommodation is perfectly arranged, south facing with 3 different outside terraces which caught the sun or shade depending on the time of day and the pool was in the sun continuously. A small building to the side of the villa contains a quiet retreat with seating, coffee and comfortable sofas for those looking to escape the main house for a hour or so. In through the main door and to your right is the larger living room with TV,satellite and DVD sofa chairs and table and doors out the East terrace - this was the children's den and retreat from the heat in the middle of the day. Also on the East side was our ground floor double bedroom - stunning mountain views out of the window and able to watch the sun rise from our bed. On the left of the hall is the smaller dining room which links into the kitchen. A double door leads out to the front terrace with 2 seats which proved a great vantage point to watch the antics in the pool. The well equipped kitchen had everything needed for our stay and a very large American style fridge freezer was put to good use. Leading off the kitchen through double doors was the West terrace with a large table, seating and built in barbecue where many happy evenings were spent after the kids went to bed! (The handy bottle bank is just the other side of the road) At the back of the house was our WC shower room and a utility room. Up the marble stairs and on the half landing was the single bedroom, ideal for the smallest family member and then upstairs were 4 large doubles - 1 with access to the 1st floor terrace. 2 bathrooms - 1 with bath completed the accommodation. Everything was well maintained and where appropriate in a period style. A short 5 min walk into Camaiore with its many bars and restaurants was ideal and a 20 min drive to Pisa or Lucca catered for all tastes. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
