Lovely Stay in Lucca!
The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos--super clean and super charming. Gaia is also super welcoming and very helpful in terms of assisting guests to quickly find their way around the town. She really tried to make my stay a great one. The location is also just about perfect and very close to everything: cafes, bars, groceries, shopping, etc.
The only minor drawbacks (I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could!) may not be a huge challenge for short stays, but my reservation was for 11 days. I would have enjoyed better wifi (service didn't reach the terrace and often dropped in the bedroom), A/C in bedroom (main room A/C works great and there's also a fan, but BR was still too warm for me), better natural light in the afternoons when sun was on opposite side of building.
Overall the apartment was very welcoming and offered plenty of space and amenities and Gaia could not have been a more pleasant host.
Thank you so much Andy for the beautiful review. For me it was a real pleasure to have you as my guests. Thanks again and my best regards
Peace and quiet in the centre of Lucca
Lucca is a remarkable walled city in Italy. Gaia apartment is right next door to the popular tourist venue of the site of the old amphitheatre but is so quiet and peaceful. Nestled under the terracotta and old-beam roof of an old house is a gem of an apartment which spacious accommodation (that is probably cool in the summer and snug in the winter) and a wonderful terrace that is private and quiet. Returning from the hurly burly of walking the walls, shopping or visiting towns nearby, Gaia's apartment is a haven that is worth the climb. The stairs are steep but the rewards and perfection. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to spend time in Lucca. The walled City is not on the "typical" big tourist routes but it has charm, character and provides a real sense of Italy and being Italian.
Thank you so much for the beautiful review. For me it was a real pleasure to have you as my guests. You have been absolutely perfect and very kind. Many thanks again and my best regards
Perfect apartment within the walls for exploring Lucca.
The apartment was very clean indeed and well equipped. Perfectly situated within the walls of Lucca. Everywhere is within walking distance and very close to all the shops and restaurants. Gaia (the owner) was very helpful indeed, assisting us upon arrival with parking and delivering our cases to the apartment. We made good use of the outside terrace which was a peaceful oasis. I would highly recommend booking the apartment to any one wishing to enjoy all that Lucca has to offer. One cautionary note, although the apartment is advertised as air conditioned, one of the bedrooms however does not have this.
Many thanks Mark for your nice review.
For me it was a pleasure to have you as my guests and I hope you can come back. Regarding the air conditioning is the first time in many years that a guest makes me notice that it lacks in one of the two rooms. This is true, but this room can benefit from the air conditioning placed immediately next to the door and in any case in the same room there is also a powerful fan.
Many thanks again and my best regards
We had an excellent week in the apartment
The apartment is perfect for a break in Lucca and has everything you would need . The terrace is a real pleasure and a bonus in Lucca and the apartment is in a great position in the town for everything . You are only feet away from all the restraurants shops and sites of Lucca
Gaia was a great host providing everything you need
We will be back
Many thanks for the wonderful review Andrew. For me it was a pleasure to have you as my guests and I really hope you can come back. Thank you very much again and my best regards
Great way to experience Lucca at its best!
We had a wonderful time in Gaia’s apartment! It’s spacious, stilish, impeccably clean, and very well equipped. The old building, with each and every modern amenity is just a stone throw from Piazza Anfiteatro and other Lucca historical landmarks. The terrace is beautiful:spacious, private, and comfortable,. Great view from the terrace with Tore Guinigi , the roofs of Lucca and mountains in the background is priceless!
Gaia was very helpful and responded to our needs right away! We recommend this unique apartment to all who want to experience Lucca at its best!
Again many thanks Olga,
I really hope you've been well. For me it was a real pleasure to have you as my guests and I hope you can come back.
All the best
A lovely comfortable and spacious apartment in the walled city of Lucca
We loved Gaia's apartment. It is in a great location a few steps away from the Piazza Anfiteatro and close to all amenities and restaurants. The apartment is on the top floor and has a large terrace with views over the tiled roof tops of Lucca. The weather was dry and sunny so we were able to have breakfast outside every day and dinner when we were not dining out in one of the many restaurants close by. Gaia the owner was very helpful with her recommendations and all the restaurants we went to lived up to our expectations. There is a lovely deli 2 minutes walk away ..turn right when you exit the front door. We were very impressed at how clean the walled city was with rubbish being picked up continuously even at weekends. There is so much to see and do that the week just flew past. A must do activity is to hire bikes for a few hours and cycle on the walls all the way around the city. The city is filled with beautiful churches and in one of them there are concerts and recitals every single day of the year with varied professional performers and programs each evening to celebrate Giacomo Puccini who was born in Lucca. We highly recommend a visit to Lucca and if possible to this apartment in the Via Anfiteatro. ....you will not be disappointed.
Many thanks Vanda for the wonderful review. For me it was a pleasure to have you my customers and I hope you can come back. Thanks again and my best regards
