Excellent apartment and location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Aldo’s beautiful apartment. Aldo went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable. He left for us a full pantry and items in the fridge which he genuinely wanted us to us - his generosity went above and beyond our expectations. The bedrooms upstairs had beautiful views of Lucca and the beds were very comfortable. The apartment was spacious and very clean. The location was right in the heart of Lucca which made it easy for sightseeing, shopping and restaurants. Aldo was a wonderful host and we would definitely recommend highly.

Gorgeous Apartment In A Perfect Location!

What a wonderful time we had in Lucca! Our host Aldo was gracious and charming; and his apartment was beautifully-appointed. Within the wall, wonderful views all the way round, and easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and museums. We'll definitely be back! Ciao Aldo!

Loved It! Truly a "Manor House"

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Felt like we were staying in a 4-Star Hotel. Beautiful. Views from every window. Fully stocked kitchen. Simple breakfast provided. Fireplace set up for fire and stocked for future fires. Being winter, we couldn't enjoy the sun-room as much as we wanted, but it was always warm (we dried laundry in there) and had great 180 degree views. It was elegant. Worth going up all the stairs. Our favorite place we stayed in our 20 day, 6 city tour of Italy. Well worth it. Good communication by host, his son met us at train station and got us situated in the apartment. Great place to stay.

absolutely recommendable

  • 5 of 5

beautyful apartment right in the heart of the old town. Aldo, the owner, was so kind to pick us up at the train station and had already filled the fridge and the fruitbowl. The apartment lies close to a lot of shops and restaurants and convenient close to the central bus station. It was easy to reach Florence, Pisa and the beach in Viareggio by bus. Right under the roof, the bedrooms got quite warm but there were fans to minimize that problem. The kitchen was wellequipped and we appreciated the dishwasher! ln conclusion a supernice appartment with an amicable owner. Recommendable!!!

Fabulous views inside old city walls!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming and well appointed apartment. The owner is very kind and takes his hospitality seriously. The kitchen was stocked with generous breakfast items, making an easy transition the first morning, It is spacious, warm, & inviting, in a terrific location close to everything. We had no trouble finding easy free parking, thanks to the help of the owner, who also advised us on how & where to drive to see Cinque Terra. Stairs inside apartment building require being in shape. I'd suggest finding parking as close to Porta S. Anna, & meet owner in front of Puccini stature in front of Puccini's house. Good location to everything, and quiet away from crowds & noise in the evening.

Wonderful restful place in the heart of Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect place to stay for our visit to Lucca in October. The location is fantastic, in the oldest part of town and right across the street from a restored villa that is a public museum. Our host went out of his way to make us welcome and to share his knowledge of the region. The apartment is peaceful and cosy with amazing views and inspiring decor. The kitchen is very well-equipped, and we cooked some wonderful meals there. It felt like home! We will definitely stay here again when we return to beautiful Lucca!

Once you exit the Lucca Est highway, follow the signs for Centro. After passing a large railway overpass you will arrive at a roundabout and continue left to Abetone, you will find the ancient Walls of Lucca on your right. Enter immediately right into the first access door to the city you find. That is Porta Sant'Anna Parked in the area immediately after the Porta and you reach the apartment on foot.

Bike rental via the Crucifix. Chocolate Caniparoli. Pastry Taddeucci. Inside the city the parking lots are all paid but immediately outside the ancient walls there are also free. There are many important excursions to make if the stay is long enough. I can indicate the places on request.
