Make a holiday apartment in Lucca your home away from home

Lucca is the capital of the Tuscan province of the same name and is a small, medieval city enclosed entirely by immense Renaissance-era walls. They were built to defend the city and were never breached. The ancient ramparts are so wide that today they are an elevated park with benches, footpaths and cycle lanes. Between these fortifications is an elegant city of plazas, ancient towers, palaces, churches and pastel-coloured buildings.

HomeAway has gorgeous holiday apartments in Lucca that are located close to the city and main attractions, and are available all year round. They have from two to 14 bedrooms and are furnished to a very high standard. All are spacious and many come with their own private gardens, grounds or swimming pools. In addition there are Lucca holiday rentals within the ancient walled city. There are more beautiful historic sites ten miles from Lucca, where visitors can find more reasonably priced holiday homes in Pisa.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: Lucca’s medieval skyline was once dotted with more than 100 towers, the homes and private fortresses of wealthy merchant families. Today, only a few are left and two can be climbed. They are the Clock Tower and the Guinigi Tower, which has a roof garden of oak trees. Other historic buildings worthy of note include the Church of San Michele, a 12th-century building filled with paintings, frescoes and sculptures.

-Museums: Lucca was the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini, one of Italy’s most famous composers. His childhood home has been turned into a museum, the Casa Natale di Giacomo Puccini. The ten rooms contain some of his musical scores, manuscripts, original concert brochures and personal letters.

-Festivals: Every summer the city hosts The Lucca Summer Festival, a huge open-air musical celebration in Piazza Napoleone, Lucca's main public square. It features a host of big names, and in the past Bob Dylan, Elton John and Pink have performed on its stage. If planning a visit, it is advised tourists book holiday villas in Lucca well in advance. The Lucca Winter Festival in November and December features jazz, gospel, classical and other musical concerts at the Teatro del Giglio.

-Shopping: Lucca’s main shopping thoroughfare is Via Fillungo containing an elegant mix of independent boutiques and stores selling clothes, leather goods, antiques and jewellery. In September and December Piazza San Michele hosts a temporary market with stalls selling locally made handicrafts, sweets, toys and regional foods.

Weather in Lucca

Visitors can enjoy holiday villas in Lucca all through the year as the city benefits from hot summers and mild winters. The temperature during the hottest months of July and August often climbs to 30°C , while in December and January 8-10°C is the norm. There can be numerous rainy days during autumn and winter with October and November being the wettest months.

Travel to Lucca

The nearest airports to Lucca are in Pisa and Florence and there are good road and rail connections from both these cities. There is also a bus that travels from Pisa direct to Lucca. Hiring a car is a must for visitors who want to travel around the wider province. Most people walk or rent a bike within the city walls as driving is primarily restricted to residents.

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.

The house itself is 2 minutes walk from the city walls which are a fantastic place to walk, run, cycle or just relax (we found that no matter how warm it was in the city, there was always a refreshing breeze up on the walls) We particularly enjoyed the outside terrace which has seating for 8+, a great place for eating, playing games and chilling with a glass of wine in the evening. Lucca has a lovely atmosphere, lots of great restaurants, dozens of wonderful gelato shops and super bars to sit and people watch. Vala was a great host, responding to any enquires very quickly and I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting a relaxing break in a beautiful setting. Absolutely five star *****
