Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Centro Storico - Casa SAN FRANCESCO

The apartment is a delightful and stylish home located within the walls in the heart of Lucca’s town centre on the top floor of an antique palace from which the view all around is superb!

The apartment has been radically restored a couple years ago retaining wherever possible pieces of the building's history as the ceiling beams, some of the original brick walls and the antique tiled terracotta floors. The furniture has been very well cared and the result is a very tasteful setting. The apartment has free wi-fi internet connection and air conditioning.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this apartment in 2011

Just lovely!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Sonya's property. Great location and the views were wonderful from all windows. Sonya met us and showed us around and there were plenty of books and leaflets to read about what was on in Lucca and the surrounding area in the apartment.

The apartment is very well equipped and staying for 7 nights was really lovely. We felt very much at home for the whole time and the character of the place gave a wonderful atmosphere. We have stayed in Lucca many times and would love to stay here again.

We hired bikes from the bike hire shop 3 doors away for most of the week and so felt like 'locals'!

Thank you to Sonya

Kind regards,

Christopher and Susanna.

Fourth floor walk-up hot in summer

  • 3 of 5

Mrs. Sonia was delightful and the apartment was pleasantly outfitted however on the fourth top floor of a tall apartment it was very hot in summer, albeit with modest air conditioning. I don't remember seeing it mentioned that it was on the fourth floor which was challenging in itself but also as it was the building dormer contributed to the hot temperature. The square below was noisy from 6:30 in the morning until 2 or 3:00 am and the sound echoed and carried on throughout the night. Otherwise it was conveniently located and well worth the price. Parking was in a nearby garage for about 15 euros per day. The shower lacks a soap dish/holder but otherwise the apartment was very well equipped. Thank you for your hospitality Mrs. Sonia and local information.

Charming apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Close to underground parking, and located within the old city, this apartment is beautiful. Well equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds, lovely views from every window. Loved the quaintness of an apartment in such an old building - the old timber ceilings, different floor levels and such. All in a beautifully furnished residence. Wish we could have stayed longer. Perfect for our family of two adults and two children. Appreciated the professional hand over and the comprehensive manual which had everything about the apartment and Lucca which we could have wanted to know.

The Best Time EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this adorable place for a couple weeks and I just can't gush enough. It was the perfect place for us. The photos do it justice...but the kitchen has been totally remodeled! I plan to return and would highly recommend this place!

Unbeatable views of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and its location were everything we expected. The reviews and listing were all on target. The apartment was clean and everything was in running order. It was great to have a washing machine and dryer and an equipped laundry room. Sonia was extremely helpful and prompt. It was especially nice to be in an area away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist sites in Lucca but very close by to shops and main sites. We have traveled to Lucca previously and have never seen crowds, that is why we are in love with this town. The view from the apartment were unbeatable. We would definately recommend this apartment to any family traveling to Lucca.
