We had a lovely holiday at apartment Emma in Lucca. We had everything we needed in this lovely plac.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment Emma is located just across the road from the entrance to the walled city of Lucca and the car park is just a short walk away. The apartment was beautifully presented with everything we needed. We stayed in this lovely apartment for 10 nights and we really had a great time. This was our first visit to Italy and we hope to come back here again soon because 10 nights didn’t feel like enough. Thanks Renata for your nice welcome and for the delicious cake and your patience in waiting over two hours for us to find the apartment. My fault as I took the Lucca road from the airport I should have headed for Pisa first then picked up the signs for Lucca. Next time I will know how to get there without getting lost. I found driving in Italy straight forward and the roads are very good. We drove to le Spezia and picked up the train to the Cinque Terre what a beautifully place. Thanks Renata for your recommendation. We also had a day out at the beach and travelled to Bagni di Lucca. We had some nice dinners out in lucca with plenty of choices. There is also a very good supermarket round the corner although I found it more convenient going by car. A very good apartment in a very good location.

Well situated for exploring Lucca

The apartment is well situated for exploring Lucca. We found that it was well equipped and was clean and comfortable with wonderful air conditioning which was very welcome. There was a nice welcome from Renata and her husband and we appreciated the water and the cake. We would recommend this apartment.

Great location with excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We selected this rental for its location and I am so glad we did. This home is beautifully updated and had plenty of room for our party of 6 plus air conditioning that kept us cool in the hot July heat. My family has stayed in many vacation rentals and this one is amongst the best. Not only are the accommodations top notch, but the owner is outgoing and kind as well. Renata and her husband met us at our arrival and departure. It is clear that they take pride in their rental and are so gracious. Renata left us a delectable lemon cake and wine from her family vineyard to enjoy. We greatly enjoyed our time in the rental, which is just outside the walled city of Luca and within 10 minutes by foot to a grocery store. Parking is close by and is only $5 per day. We used this rental as a jumping off point for our visit to the Cinque Terre, Portofino, snorkeling, and hanging out on the beach. Thank you for a lovely stay!

A Trip Highlight

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were on a girl's trip, and wanted to spend time away from the over-touristy cities in Italy. We selected Lucca for it's location close to Tuscany and Florence, but away from the heart of the action. We loved our time in Lucca, and the apartment was the icing on the cake. When we arrived, we met Renata at the building entrance. Her husband helped us with the luggage since the flat is in the attic area of the building. The flat was perfect. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were quiet, there were plenty of supplies in the kitchen (not that we cooked much with that great food). Renata gave us some great recommendations for meals, and left us with a delicious cake and a great bottle of wine. The location was ideal. Outside the walled portion of the city, but across the street from an entrance to the city. Walking distance to the grocery store and an AVIS car rental. There was a parking lot about 100 yards from the apartment for the days that we had the car, and it only cost 5euro per night to park. The apartment was everything we hoped it would be.

Lucca has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived by train from Pisa airport, turned left as we left the station walked a few hundred meters to be met at the property by the owners mother Renata and her husband. Across the road we could see the walled old city of Lucca. A quick tour of the very well presented property and some helpful local information from Renata and we were ready to explore but not before a cup of tea and a generous slice of the home made cake Renata had brought as a welcoming gift. (there was also a free bottle of wine from their own vineyard which we would enjoy later).

Everything you could need for your stay is within walking distance even a local Avis car hire was just 10 minutes away.

I would recommend this property to anyone seeking comfortable quality accommodation there are 3 flights of stairs to consider but this is good for helping to offset the pizza, pasta and gelato you will be tempted to consume.

The real test is would we go back? The answer is yes,
