Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Centro Storico - CASA FRANCESCA

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Air conditioning, WIFI, close by parking and much space

Casa Francesca, once horse stable of the antique palace belonged to Lord Guinigi (1700s) now it has been converted into a homey apartment with a private fenced garden in 2015. The renovation was done to highest standards making up 2 comfortable bedrooms (one with a king size bed and one with 2 twin beds), 3 bathrooms both with grand built-in showers and bathtub, AIR CONDITIONING, WIFI, a private fenced garden furnished with table and chairs and a little sofa, any kind of kitchen appliance and utensils.

Casa Francesca is located in the same building of Casa Vera (www.homeaway.co.uk/1728696) that I manage as well. The building consists of only those 2 units and each one has its own separate fenced private garden so privacy is never compromised.

FREE PARKING IS LOCATED IN 5 MINS WALKING FROM THE APARTMENT

For larger groups (up to 8 guests) the two apartments can be rented together as well making up a total of 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

The apartment has double entrance, one from the garden and one from the street. It is composed of: a grand living room, a spacious fully equipped kitchen opening onto the garden, a spacious dining room opening to the garden as well, 2 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a LAUNDRY ROOM fully equipped with washer/dryer, iron and board.

The apartment is sun exposed all day which makes it very bright all day, this is a very rare thing in Italy!

The location is the quietest and the nicest, overlooking the gardens from where the lovely chirping of birds comes.

The apartment is very suggested for 2 couple of friends travelling together as the bedroom and bathrooms organization provides privacy for everyone; but it is also suggested for 2 friends trafelling together that do not want to share same bedroom and same bathroom as well as for a family of 4.

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 2015

Outstanding apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment had it all. It also had the wonderfully helpful Miss Sonia. The location could not be better. A quiet street close to the wall for a morning walk or bike ride. The decor was homely and modern as was the kitchen. The outdoor area was delightful and quiet even at the busiest season. We are returning and will arrange our visit on the availability of the apartment. It is simply the best. Thank you Miss Sonia.

Wonderful Stay in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Our three week apartment rental in Lucca exceeded our expectations. The two bedrooms were beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable and the kitchen was full of light and airy. The adjoining terrace was delightful, giving us privacy but also allowing us to view daily life in the walled city. Mrs. Sonia was helpful in directing us to grocery stores and specialty shops--- very accommodating. The apartment's location was perfect---easy access to the promenade, walking distance to the train station. We plan to return next Spring hopefully for six weeks.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Francesca was as good or better than advertised. More spacious than expected. Beautifully appointed. Very clean. Excellent customer service from the delightful Sonia. Luca has far more to offer than an historic wall. Looking forward to returning soon.

Beautiful apartment in the heart of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Even though the reviews of this apartment were positive, I think like most people we had reservations on how things really are - but we should not have had any doubts. This is a beautiful apartment so well equipped and in such a good position to the stunning town of Lucca. The photos are a true representation of the style & quality of the apartment, we would certainly recommend it and would have no hesitation to staying there again, and thank you Mrs Sonia for a friendly welcoming greeting.

Nice Location

  • 4 of 5

Fairly well equipped apartment in a nice quiet location that is close to everything in Lucca. Nice finishes. Did find the apartment to be dark at times seeing as the windows are strictly to the front and back of this long apartment. Beautiful kitchen with lots of natural light. Nice outside seating area. Did note a musty smell to the couches and when returning to the apartment after a long day out it also smelt a bit musty. Once windows were opened it was fine. Very comfortable beds. Nice to have 3 bathrooms with 4 adult travellers. Quiet location for the most part. We choose to park in the free lot outside of the walls and the walk was an easy 5 minutes. Plenty of good restaurants in Lucca...you can't really go wrong....Try Osteria San Giorgio. Mrs Sonia was very nice...Thanks for a nice stay!
