Great location for us, fine restaurant 2 blocks away and food shopping nearby, well equipped, furnished and well-designed suite. Immaculately clean. Air conditioned (and that was needed because the temperature rose to 38 degrees most days we were there!) A friend joined us for several days, so the accommodation was perfect. Elevator was appreciated and we loved it. Wonderful outdoor deck with a table, four chairs and a giant sofa + a couple of lounge chairs. We had a late-arrival welcome basket with a few staples to help with a first breakfast and it was good. We have been in Lucca before, but I strongly suspect that we will look to Sonia and her team next time.

We were met by Renata and her husband who made us welcome and answered any questions. She had baked us a delicious Lemon Cake and left a bottle of her vinyard white wine 😋򒰮 All the detailsof the apartment were well thought out, and we loved it!! This was probably my 10th VRBO over the years, and it stands out as one of the best!?! Thank you so much Renata

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so it was important to have a good shelter! The cottage was perfect - terrific view and very cosy inside, with a log fire in the kitchen which made chilly evenings very snug indeed. It's a great spot and an ideal base for exploring the surrounding hills. Remote, away from it all feel, yet Lucca within easy striking distance. We hope to return.
