Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Perfect for up to 6 adults, you can add beds for children.

Description of the apartment:

in the center of the city of Lucca

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 6 adults, children's beds can be added.

Equipped kitchen living / dining room

Ottolini Palace is a typical medieval building, built as a "tower house". The apartment is on the third floor of the historic building of the second half of the fourteenth century. It is located in the center of the city, including the Tower of the hours and the Guinigi Tower, in a quiet area with little traffic.

The apartment has the typical Lucchesi floors with colorful hexagons and ancient terracotta, old decorations and more in tune with the era of the house.

The apartment is on the third floor and is accessed by the old stairs. It consists of a large living-dining room with adjoining open kitchen (toaster, dishwasher, gas hob, oven, etc.), a bedroom with double bed with dresser; a bedroom with double bed, walk-in closet and private bath; a bedroom with two single beds and wardrobe.

The apartment is bright and airy, with views of the Tower of hours.

In all rooms there is air conditioning and heating, and you'll manage the temperature according to your needs, so it is the only additional cost that I require you, calculated according to consumption at the end of your stay.

Both bathrooms are in perfect condition and have a shower.

As you can read in the reviews, the apartment is on the third floor and there are several stairs to do, I can tell you, I do I do them several times a day and I feel that I do well.

If you arrive by car, parking is located about 900 meters outside the city walls, and if I can I can come and take my car to help you transfer your luggage.

The main street with shops, restaurants, ice cream shops and local produce is just around the corner.

Under the house there is an excellent restaurant and opposite a typical small bar with wine and small plates, a few steps a small supermarket.

In the pictures you can see an open room with table and chairs, it is a terrace but a landing of the stairs where you can relax drinking or smoking.

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I recently stayed in this lovely apartment which is in a perfect location within the Medieval walls of beautiful Lucca. The history was apparent; the building was authentic, with some upgrades, but not to the point that it detracted from it's original facade. Close by is the main shopping street, and all of the Piazzas, cafes and restaurants. There is a nice restaurant and quaint wine bar just outside the front door of the building. We loved the location! It was comfortable and very clean, with updated, modern bathrooms.

Francesco and his son Matteo were so kind and friendly, and extremely helpful. Matteo picked us up from the train station. It was wonderful getting some history and perspective from him as we drove. Worth noting: there are 72 steps up to the apartment, so if you have heavy luggage, as we did, it may be a bit of a challenge. However, Matteo assisted us in carrying our luggage up, and Francseco helped us carry our luggage down...such gentlemen. Francesco gave us a place to lock up our luggage after we checked out, so we could continue to enjoy all that Lucca had to offer for the rest of the day. He even called us a taxi when it was time for us to leave. While we waited, we sat and had one last glass of wine at the little wine bar in the plaza downstairs. Perfect!

I highly recommend this historic apartment to anyone visiting Lucca. I hope to have the opportunity to visit again.

Bright, Modern & Spacious 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms historic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The best part of our family vacation was our week stay in this 700 year old building! The apartment and the owners are fabulous!

Staying in the apartment helped us experience everyday Italian living in a relaxed setting. The owners, Francesco and Monica, were so positively delightful, helpful and kind. We had great restaurant suggestions and sight seeing ideas, and since they live in the same building, they were available if a problem should occur. They gave us the opportunity to spend time with them over a traditional Italian meal. It was a memorable evening with a lovely family!

The third floor apartment had good views and very comfortable beds and furniture. The kitchen had everything we needed from morning espresso makers to dinner pans and a dishwasher. The washing machine/clothes line came in handy. We used the A/C on a couple of very hot afternoons. The historic city wall, churches, towers and shopping areas of Lucca were all around the apartment; it is a great location for relaxing walks and sight seeing.

We look forward to returning to the apartment and visiting with Francesco and Monica! We highly recommend this apartment!

The perfect lucca location

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant location. Located right next to the main shopping street, and amfitheatro. Just a short walk to the main piazzas and a handy supermarket 1 minute walk away. It was a quietly situated apartment. There are 72 steps up to the apartment but well worth the exercise. It was comfortable and very clean and the sleeping arrangements were perfect for a party of 5. Plenty of space to relax. Francesco and Monica were most helpful and friendly, the enquiries we did make they were able to sort out straight away. We would highly recommend the apartment to everyone visiting beautiful Lucca. We would definitely stay again if we come back.

Wonderful flat in the center of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We rented this flat for one week (7-14.09). We liked it very much. The flat has all necessary equipment for life. It's situated in the city center so you can reach all sightseeings very fast. The small supermarket is round the corner. Francesco and Monica are good hosts. They made everything required to meet and to place us. The flat is on the 4th floor with medieval steps so you should be in a good physical form. In the bedrooms you can hear the little noise from the restaurant in the evening. But the air and atmosphere in the flat were so good that we had sound sleep. It's cozy and nice flat for staying.

"We had a great week in F...

  • 5 of 5

"We had a great week in Francesco's apartment, and it was an outstanding value. Location was perfect, everything was clean and functioning very well, Francesco was extremely helpful and friendly. No problems of any kind. Getting to the apartment requires climbing a fair number of steps (72 I think -- our kids counted them) but our party of 6, including two grandparents and two children (ages 7 and 4) had no trouble with them. Day trips to nearby areas in Tuscany and Liguria were easy, and Lucca was a great place to spend the week. Highly recommended!"

"Beautiful historic house...

  • 5 of 5

"Beautiful historic house in the heart of the old centre of Lucca - as an example, a picture of the house is actually included in the Bonechi Lucca 2005 guide book - as a "typical Lucca palazzo".

Very friendly and warm wellcome from the owners - Francesco and Monica.

The family has some very good local restaurant and other amenities recommendations.

The Apartment itself is well maintained, nicely furnished and very clean - eg all the kitchen equipment seemed brand new. Quiet during the night and cool during the day thanks to the tick walls. Note however the apartment is on the third floor - quite some steps to take.

We had a fantastic week in Lucca and definitely recommend anybody to stay here and use this apartment as a base for a visit to Tuscany."
