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 were met by the Owner's Mother, Renata, who couldn't have been more welcoming. Renata showed us round the apartment and gave us a wealth of information about local restaurants, shops and activities in the area. She also left for us a lovely bottle of wine from the family vineyard and a homemade apple tart which was simply delicious! Nothing was too much trouble - she lives close by and we knew that if we had any problems (which we didn!t), that she would be readily able to help. The apartment itself was very clean, spacious and tastefully decorated with air conditioning and a washing machine that all worked without a hitch. The kitchen was very well equipped and the two bathrooms were furnished to a high standard. The beds were lovely and comfortable. The apartment also has wifi and the signal was always strong. It is situated within walking distance of a good supermarket. The apartment is situated approximately 2 minutes from the town walls making access to the delightful town of Lucca very easy. We loved exploring the different, and sometimes hidden, entrances to the town exploring the tunnels into the town itself. Lucca has a very relaxed feel to it. The people are very friendly in the restaurants and shops and the food was just delicious! We hired bikes at a very reasonable price and cycled the town walls and through the streets which was great fun with our 2 boys (age 10 and 13). There was lots to keep us occupied in the town itself - stunning views from the top of the clock tower if you are not worried about heights! We hired a car and so were able to explore the area too around Lucca. Within half an hour you can be on the roads into the mountains enjoying the beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside. I would definitely recommend this apartment as a lovely base to explore Lucca and the surrounding area. We will definitely be back and look forward to seeing the lovely Renata (and her little dog Emma!) again soon!

Six good bedrooms and plenty of room for eating together. We had a list of places we planned to visit, but we enjoyed relaxing, cooking and eating together on the terrace outside the house even more than going out. The pool is very good, with sun and shade around it. Panoramic views. Beautifully renovated house, very well equipped, everything in great working order including quiet and effective a/c in bedrooms. Food shops a short drive away. George and Linda had everything looking stunning when we arrived and very helpful whenever needed. All in all a 5 star place for a holiday.

It is bright, modern, clean and well furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped. The apartment is close to a good supermarket so you can get all the supplies you need, and you can cycle or walk to the beach. We spent a lovely week in Torre Del Lago, visiting the romantic lake where Puccini lived and wrote his operas, and we used this location as a base to visit other places of interest in northern Tuscany. The owner is very helpful and responds to any requests or queries promptly and efficiently. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for a pleasant, relaxing holiday!
