This elegant apartment is located in an ancient fortress tower. It is located in the medieval part of the walled town of Lucca, along Via Fillungo which is the main exclusive shopping street.
The entire building is under strict control of the Monuments and Fine Arts Office, who consider the building one of the Italian monument to be preserved.
The flat is reachable via a square where parking is allowed and it is located 20 metres from the apartment. It is approx. 140 M2 large, but it looks much bigger because of its high original beamed ceiling.
The recent renovation has brought to the light the original colour of the decoration of the old beamed ceiling, a real masterpiece of this flat!

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 2013

This apartment and its location were everything we expected. The photos and listing were all on target. The apartment was clean and everything was in running order. It was great to have sumptuous interiors and a magnificent view over the town: there are no places like this one! Sonia was extremely helpful and prompt. We asked her for some cooking utensils as we had a party one night and she promptly brought brand new items. It was especially nice to be in an area away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist sites in Lucca but very close by to shops and main sites. We have traveled to Lucca previously and have never seen crowds, that is why we are in love with this town. We would definitely recommend this apartment to any family traveling to Lucca.
This Via Fillungo apartment perfectly met our needs. Located conveniently inside the walls of Lucca, it opened onto one of the main pedestrian streets of the city.
But the best part was how comfortable it was. A great bed (we only needed one bedroom) and two great bathrooms (we needed both) were very welcome, as was the air conditioning on mid-September nights when it was still seasonably warm in the area. The furnishings are stylish, the kitchen is well equipped, and everything in the apartment worked just fine. Oh, and an American coffeemaker, which was greatly appreciated.
Our communications with Mrs. Sonia were excellent, and it was a pleasure meeting her. She gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations, too. Should fortune ever bless us with another trip to Lucca, we will eagerly seek to stay in this Via Fillungo apartment again!
We enjoyed the apartment it was close the the sites and train station, but out of the tourist hoards. Sonia was there to meet us so we didn't get lost in the first minute. Unfortunately we were only there 7 nights. not enough time to see it all. The restaraunts and market she suggested were great. The kitchen was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We really liked just riding our bike around and seeing things from the walls. Tenuta Valgiano that Sonia suggested had amazing wine sand we got a daily trip there in the countryside of Lucca. When we are able to return we will check Sonia's availability. It was a great charming apartment.
my wife and i stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks.....the apartment is truly luxurious with marble and tile on every surface and antique furniture to cap things off. we felt like kings and queens living here...the place is like the ritz except it is private. all i can say is that it is a gem of a property. people who rent it will find it also amazing. we plan on returning to lucca and cannot wait to stay with sonia again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I visited the apartment for 1 week in may with my girlfriend and her parents after a week in the countryside and we rented both properties from the same owner Mrs Sonia. This apartment is every bit as beautiful as the photos suggest. It is very clean,recently renovated, spacious and has everything for a comfortable holiday including a well stocked kitchen and instructions for all the appliances. The interiors are stylish, the beds brand new and were comfortable for the 4 of us, there was an excellent internet connection and a tv with international channels. The location of the apartment is perfect for those wanting to enjoy Lucca and have daily trips around Tuscany. A free parking is located almost at the door of the building so moving around was so easy! The parking was a real bonus and so rare! It is a short distance from the shopping streets and squares but on a quiet corner. It situated in an area that contains a nice supermarket and numerous food shops. Best of all, just across the street, is the fantastic Port Ellen Clan Restaurant , where you can be guaranteed of being treated like royalty every time you visit! Thanks Sonia - we will see you again on our next visit to Lucca!
We have just returned to our routine after living the real LUCCA EXPERIENCE...and we loved it. We searched for fun, sightseeing and peace and we found them all! Finding Casa Bastione was a real find! From the very first email, I was impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of the communication. It was very reassuring! When we arrived, the owner was great - welcomed us warmly and did everything that she could to make out stay enjoyable. This apartment really tick all the boxes: located in a quiet and historical neighbourhood, a parking in less than 10 minute walking...and then over the corner many restaurants, shops, public transport... The charming atmosphere of the elegant furniture adds value and the gentle bathrooms and comfortable beds and big storage were just...Heaven! We couldnt have asked for more, thank you Sonia for your kindness and warm hospitality.
This apartment is a wonderful way to experience Lucca and its surrounding areas. Lucca is still a relatively uncrowded city with many one-of-a-kind shops, good restaurants and beautiful architectural vignettes at every turn. Its spectacular walls, where everyone should have a walk at sunset, are a treasure to behold. It is a city of bicycles, the preferred mode of transportation, frequent train and bus service to Florence, Pisa and the Tuscan shore makes Lucca a very desirable base for exploring this area of Tuscany.
