Relaxing holiday in a lovely spacious and comfortable flat.
The property is the ground floor apartment. It is very comfortable and is well fitted out. It is also only a short drive from the nearest village and just five minutes from Lucca itself.
We had a lovely week long stay (our second at the property) and again enjoyed the quietness, having a patio space right outside and the pool closeby. Being on the ground floor the flat is cool and airy.
Francesca and Giovanni are wonderful, kind hosts and were around everyday should we have needed them. They made us extremely welcome and we hope to return again soon.
Great holiday accommodation and holiday base
We stayed in the Salvia apartment which was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Giovanna was on-site when we arrived and gave us an excellent introduction to the property and also advice reagrding nearby amentities and attractions. She was also around the property on most mornings in case we encountered any problems. She was extremely helpful in assisting us get the best from our time in Lucca.
The property had lots of room, was well equiped and nicely decorated with some extra added touches that helped it feel like a home. The place was quiet and secure and just as described on the website.
Being slightly outside the town of Lucca we were pleased to have use of a car, as otherwise it is about a 30 minute walk to the town. There is plenty of parking space on the property and thus we never had an issue with being unable to park nearby, which could well have been a problem if we had been in the town itself.
Lucca is a great base for exploring the area, either by car or train. If we ever wanted to stay in the area again we would certainly be happy to re-book this apartment and would thoroughly recommend it to others.
Lovely apartment outside the walls of Lucca
Darling apartment which made for a nice base to do Lucca for a day, see the countryside ,and do Cinque Terrre.The owners are very gracious and helpful but not intrusive. The property is picturesque and we enjoyed having breakfast outsideon our little terrace.
Lovely setting close to Lucca
Giovanna was very friendly and helpful; the property was clean and well appointed and the grounds and pool were beautifully kept. Proximity to Lucca was a key factor for us.
What a little gem
What a little gem we found here, a lovely apartment furnished just right with 4 large rooms and four separate outside seating areas if you count the pool area, lovely large well kept gardens and a pool to die for in the Italian heat. Giovanna is a lovely lady always on hand in the mornings to answer any questions you have while she is tending to her morning gardening duties. Supermarket, butchers, pizzeria, bar all 10 minutes walk away or 2 minutes in the car. Lucca town centre is about 20-25 minutes walk away or 5 minutes in the car with plenty of safe free parking available. Overall a beautiful quiet peaceful location with the only noise coming from the passing farm vehicles. Thanks for a great relaxing holiday.
The unit itself was great. A sympathetic renovation of an old farm house with every modern convenience. Giovanna was extremely helpful although her English is limited- as is our Italian. The grounds, about 5 acres of neatly mown grass and trees in the midst of wheat and vegetable crops, were relaxing and the large inground pool very inviting. The well stocked herb garden was an added bonus for cooking. The unit is close to Lucca old town and free all day parking and also to an extremely well stocked supermarket, butcher shop and easy access to the A11
