In Italy, the best apartment we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing to dislike. The great kindness and hospitality shown by Massimo, the incredibly well equipped kitchen, the great Wifi, the locality, the quietness, the view of the garden and wall, the choice of bicycles, if you do not appreciate staying here you will never be happy anywhere.

Charming and rustic apartment Italian style.

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed 10 days at Massimo's apartment. As described it's location is close to many things - local attractions, shops, bars, restaurants, as well as a short walk to a choice of two supermarkets (about 10 minutes). The train station is an approximate 20 minute walk - ideal for day trips to Pisa, Florence or Siena.

Clean and well-maintained, the apartment offers everything you need to make it your home from home with a lovely bonus - free bikes. Cycling around Lucca and it's historic walls is something you will want to do.

Massimo is a kind, generous host and provided excellent customer service and hospitality. He picked us up at the airport, provided a welcome pack of red and white wine, with fresh fruit and snacks, and was on hand should you need to ask anything, such as where to buy those lovely black truffles. Nothing was too much for him.

We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment - you will love it.

Beautiful and quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a short but lovely stay in this beautiful and well equipped apartment. It has lovely garden views at the back which is also very quiet.

I brought my Mountainbike with me which I could safely store in the hallway behind the locked outside door.

Massimo is a very welcoming and friendly host who is extremely helpful.

A wonderful apartment and a perfect host

  • 5 of 5

Massimo's apartment is large,very well equipped and has wonderful posters and pictures on all of its walls. The kitchen is compact and has everything needed for self catering and Massimo's gift of a bootle of wine and a platter of fruit made a great start to our stay..

The apartment is within easy reach of the town centre, a public car park and there is a large supermarket located about 15 minutes walk from the apartment outside the old town walls.

Massimo was an excellent host. Not only picking us up from the train station but waiting patiently for our late train to arrive. When we left he drove us to the car hire depot and stayed to make sure there were no problems with our booking.

Massimo,his apartment and the wonderful town of Lucca made our stay a holiday highlight. We would love to return there oneday but next time to stay longer!

A warm greeting in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Arriving on a lovely sunny afternoon in Lucca we received an even warmer greeting from Massimo the owner of the apartment. This very spacious apartment, that we would be home for our 3 week stay, is conveniently placed within the city walls, with free and easy parking very nearby. Lots of seating, full size dining table chairs and sideboard (with a welcome of fruit and wine!) 2 TV's, bathroom with a brand new washer dryer, and kitchen with plenty of equipment. An offer to sit in Massimo's garden whenever we wanted to and two bikes were all in. We had great time in this very homely apartment and would go back without hesitation. Thanks for everything Massimo.
