Description

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

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms to sleep 4. Air conditioning, wi-fi, sat tv!

Casa Stella is an elegant and sophisticated apartment which can accomodate up to four people with its two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It lies on the first floor (it means 17 steps only form the street level) of a very typical town house located in the heart of Lucca historical Centre along a very charming and quiet street called VIA DEL FOSSO, which is so characteristic of Lucca, with a lovely view on the water stream passing by and on the medieval buildings.

The apartment is located on a very quiet street that links a vibrant square to one of the main streets of the town where you can find several groceries selling local food and vegetables, the famous Museum of Contemporary Art (right behind the corner, literally 20 steps away from the apartment) and restaurants. The famous Piazza Anfiteatro is literally 2 mins away!

The apartment is located within 2/3 mins walking from a very convenient safe and guarded PARKING GARAGE. The charge is 13 euros daily or 50 euros for up to a month stay.

The apartment is composed of a bright living room with a dining area, a separated kitchen open onto a tiny balcony, a double bedroom with a queen sized bed, a bathroom with grand built in shower, and a twin bedroom with bathroom en-suite with another grand built in shower.

The apartment has been recently renovated and furnished with extreme care with some modern and some antique pieces. The result is a sophisticated setting exalting a typical lucchese style.

The floors comes from the beginning of the past century, the ceilings are beamed as recommended by the solidest lucchese tradition. At the same time it has been provided with all the modern comfort you may need from air conditioning, to washing machine, dish-washer and a very reliable WIFI connection provided by the national phone company.

The location. That's the heart of the historical centre of Lucca, a very few steps from everything you may need: groceries, the access to the top of the Wall, the weekly market place, restaurants, pizzerias and parking if needed.

At the end of the street you will find the statue named Madonna dello Stellario dated back to 1687.. and just to confirm the combination of history and modernity ... in front of the statue you find the gorgeous contemporary art museum and on the other side the beautiful San Francesco Square with its church just renovated. Here also is the fountain with a very good water (locals stop here to take water to drink at home!!)

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

Beautiful, comfortable, well-stocked, great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautiful. As we traveled with children, we quickly picked-up and put away breakables. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, soap, pots. The washer and drying stand were wonderful!!! The apartment had markets and restaurants nearby. Wi-fi was reliable. Lucca is a great place to walk/bike.

Fabulous property

  • 4 of 5

The property is lovely, spacious and cool and provides everything needed. Its a great location to explore Lucca as well as local mountains and beaches. The owner has put together a folder with lots of useful information which made it easy to make the most of our stay. Would recommend it to friends and family.

Do read the website thoroughly, though, as we had to pay £40 upon arrival, £15 to cover the bank charges for the credit card booking and £25 for late arrival. The latter is specified on the website I noticed later although I have never come across a fee like this before. The bank's fee for the booking I thought is normally covered by the organisation.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. The credit card transaction fee that is requested and clearly advertised online so the maximum transparency of the transaction is what maintains the price of the apartment as low as possible (92 euros nightly that includes up to 6 guests). I assume that the transarency and the smoothness of the rental is clear enough as I have not had any complaint so far. Sonia

very good facilities with ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Concern as property listing removed from website in week before visit - compounded by owner not expecting us on arrival!

However all turned out OK and we had an enjoyable stay in a very well equipped, clean and comfortable apartment.

great location in a perfect city

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on the 24th of May for a 2 week vacation in the most livable Italian city. Very walkable for those who have problems navigating because the city is flat and surrounded by a wonderful wall for strolling. The food was wonderful, the churches magnificent and the people friendly and helpful. The apartment was perfect for 2 couples, plenty of room and a perfect location away from some of the busier areas. We had a stream right outside our window where we could hear the water gurgling past while we slept. Just down the way in both direction you could fill your water bottles with wonderful spring water. It`s a great home base for traveling to Pisa, Florence, Cinque Tere, because the bus and train station are just a short walk away. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, and even though we had the best intentions to cook we never did because the restaurants and bakeries were so enjoyable. The bakery around the corner near the old arched entrance is incredible. We had a wonderful time in the morning sitting on their sidewalk chairs and watching the school children walking past. Be sure to ask Mrs. Sonia carefully about how to use the locks because one of our party locked himself out of the lower door and sat on the wall for 40 minutes until one of us noticed. A minor glitch in an otherwise enjoyable stay.

we will miss you, Lucca! Gratetful couples from Wisconsin

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Stella was a wonderful home-away-from-home for us last fall. We loved the neighborhood, which is charming and has easy access to everything in beautiful Lucca. Spent a month there, taking classes at Lucca Italian School, which is a short walk away. The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment is easy to love. Super comfy beds, a well-equipped kitchen with new dishwasher and washing machine. Sonia was so accommodating and kind, and she responded immediately to our questions. I would return to Casa Stella in a minute. Highly recommended.

Central spacious apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay here in early April 2015. After a previous week at a couple of hotels it was good to have an apartment with your own space for eating and washing. There was lots of room for the four of us. The apartment was very handy for amenities nearby also.

The two towers you can climb at Lucca are well worth a visit and the walls are very special. I ran around them a couple of times and its interesting seeing all the locals either walking or running or taking their dogs for walks.

One day we travelled early to Pisa by train and so missed the crowds when going up the leaning tower. We also had trips into the Garfagnana area and to the seaside which is very close.
