What makes this Apartment unique
When my clients arrive they say that they feel at home. I am referring to my apartment before the total renovation. I suppose they will feel at home also now, after the renovation. I like helping people, coming from all over the world, to spend their holidays in Italy by offering them holiday accommodation and interesting and fun things to do, i.e. a , cultural or gastronomical tour, Italian lessons, cooking or painting courses or anything else they might want to do during their stay in my apartment.

Much much more
This sparkling apartment was much more than I expected. Not only was it comfortable and filled with all the extras that can help guests feel at home.
Most importantly though was the attention that owner Tommaso showed me before, during, and after my stay of 2 weeks. He made certain to tell me about two special musical events, and I was very happy to attend. He made sure that I knew the best way to travel to Cinque Terre. He picked me up at the train station upon arrival from California and then helped me catch the bus when leaving. Please consider this apartment when you go to Lucca. You will be totally pleased as was I.
Thank you. It was a pleasure to meet you and share the love I have for music, art etc.
See you soon!
Excellent location and helpful owner
We had a wonderful week in this clean, comfortable, spacious and well located apartment.
Tommaso was so friendly and helpful, picking us up from the station and taking us back at the end of our stay. Everywhere within the walls was in easy walking distance and we found some lovely restaurants and delightful local shops. Walking to the station took about 15 minutes and there were direct trains to Florence and Pisa.
Thank you Tommaso for a fabulous week.
Thanks for the kind words and comments on my apartment. Unfortunately I had not much time to let you know better our town and our region that surely deserve another visit. I am sure that Scotland is also a beautiful country but that, until today, I have not yet had the opportunity to visit despite being invited many times by my friends living in Glasgow. I hope to see you again.
Summer in Lucca
Our stay with Tomasso was fantastic. He picked us up at the bus stop in Lucca and drove us to his apartment. Location is fantastic. Apartment is very well appointed and well stocked with kitchen basics. He told us about nearby restaurants and bars. He is charming and helpful and made us feel so welcome.
At the end of our holiday he drove us to Pisa airport.
We would definitely go back to his apartment. Thank you for a great holiday.
thanks for your review. I do hope to meet you again in Lucca and I am sorry if I was not a "perfect" host but you know the problems I had during your staying (my mother is day after day improving) and the traffic I met when you left.
Next time, as "old" clients you will have many "privileges".
I tried to contact you by mail (I wanted to send you one of my last stories in Italian) but may be the e-mail address you gave me was wrong and my message did not went through.
Have a nice Holiday in Spain! (if I remember)
Well Appointed Apartment in A Quiet Street
The flat which is inside the city walls is very comfortable and has everything you need for a stay in Lucca. As light sleepers noise is something which was a possible source of concern but the street is quiet with the main bedroom to the rear.
It's well located in the eastern side of Lucca and everything is within easy walking distance including the mains streets and the city walls, great if you want to avoid hiring a car and not so far from the railway station if you want to travel further afield.
Tomossao is a delightful host who arranged to both pick us up from the railway station and indeed take us back on our return. We would definitely consider staying here again or perhaps in his other apartment in Pietrasanta.
Great value and hard to find a fault
Thanks for the nice review of my apartment.
I do hope to meet you again. Our region deserves other visits: you have to discover the beach, the mountains, the quarries and the several villages with its culture, uses and stories.
Loved staying here. Only one flight of stairs up to the apartment. Very clean and excellent facilities. The owner Thommaso met us at the train station on arrival and drove us to the apartment, showed us around. Also he picked us up at the end of our stay and drove us back to the train station. Thommaso is a friendly and gracious man, we can highly recommend his apartment.
Thank you for your review. I appreciated it.
I hope to meet you again in future why not in my apartment in Pietrasanta, the town of artists also called the little Athens.
Please remember that your friends are welcome.
I was happy to hear of the places you visited nearby Lucca and that you appreciated. Lovely town, lovely country, lovely village and art everywhere but I know that also your country is beautiful.
A perfect getaway
The apt was as pictured. The only surprise was the breakfast and bottle of wine that tomasso left us. He also picked us up at the train station when we arrived...the perfect host. Great location with restaurants,sights within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
The apartment is at the first floor (not ground floor) and it offers a very good quality standard.
It has been recently new-renovated without losing its original character (terracotta floors, timber beamed ceiling, etc.
The spacious sitting – kitchen looks onto Via della Zecca and has a sofa, armchairs, TV and internet connection . The kitchen with dining area is completely equipped. Both the large peaceful double bedroom (air-conditioned) and the single bedroom look over the internal courtyard (two little balconies). There is a new renovated bathroom with shower.
The choice of a large kitchen / living- room is because the kitchen is more and more a place opened to 'being together' without the walls to divide the rooms, without interruption in the space and in the time with the living room. The owner has felt therefore the need of a stylistic contamination between the area of the preparation of meals and the area of the relation, between the space for cooking and the living space in the diversity of the functions. It changes the kitchen but it changes the living room that integrates with areas of the house previously separated.
Not far from the shopping area and the old walls, a green belt, surrounding the historic centre.
