OVERVIEW
A warm and inviting apartment, perfect for 1 or 2 couples, also with children, who want to experience real Italian life in the center of historic Lucca. This is one of the most amazing apartments in the entire historic center, located on the most beautiful street via Fillungo, in the absolute heart of Lucca. The apartment has its own tower (the highest private tower in Lucca), containing a room with large windows and spectacular views over the city, with a terrace on top, from which the entire city of Lucca is visible. The owners are friends and this property has been exclusively entrused to us.  The property starts on the 4th floor of the ancient building, and covers the next 3 levels of the building.  Access is by elevator or stairs.

LOCATION
Located in the heart of the historic center of Lucca, on the most beautiful street, via Fillungo, which is the pedestrian-only shopping street, full of tiny shops, winebars, coffee shops, and restaurants. The apartment is a few meters from the beautiful Piazza San Frediano and also Piazza Anfiteatro, the old Roman amphitheater. The beauty of staying in this apartment is that you can walk out the front door and within steps there are winebars, coffee shops, tiny grocery stores, everything you could imagine.  And because it is in the pedestrian zone, all the movement will be people strolling or riding bikes.  Wonderful!

Marina lives in the building, meets guests on arrival, and takes care of the apartment. She does a wonderful job answering questions and helping in any way you might need her (see the notes from guests below).

If this apartment is available-book it! This is without a doubt one of the nicest apartments I've rented. It's spacious, beautifully furnished, and well equipped. And the location! Right on the lively main street in Lucca. Don't hesitate to stay here. James even stopped by to meet us and offered wonderful advice on what to see, eat, and do. The entire experience was flawless. He advised us to try Miranda's restaurant, which we did, and it was delicious! The apartment easily handled our family group of 8. We have no complaints whatsoever. And what a bargain! - Tina D, Chicago, guest Sept 2012

 

I hesitate to write a review because I would like this apartment available to me whenever I want to go again!! But, it's so special I think sharing it is only fair! Our 2 weeks in Lucca would not have been near as wonderful without this unbelievable apartment. There were 7 adults and everyone had lots of space to move around or socialize. The location is ideal; walk right out your door to the shops, wine stores, and restaurants. Having Marina right downstairs was a Godsend, for any emergency or issue that came up. She is open, delightful, and very helpful. We were lucky enough to meet James while we were there and he, too, was exceptionally helpful. He even showed us one of his larger villas that we may rent next year! All in all, it was perfect. I have no criticism at all. Grab this one while you can...I'll be booking it again soon!!

This stay in Italy was a first experience for us and it was better than anything we could imagine. The apartment was perfect for all of us to stay and be comfortable. The location to shops and restaurants and bus and train stations could not have been better. We are already looking forward to a return visit. Kathleen and Richard S., San Antonio Tx, guests 2013

We stayed in this fourth floor apartment that has a elevator for two weeks in May. Key pick was easy as the contact is in the building.Three terraces, kitchen has it all, wi-fi works great, no more than a 4 min walk to any food store that you will need, extremely clean. We loved it. We hope to be back next year. - F.R., guests May 2012, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

 

We loved our 2 week stay in the Deluxe Lucca Historical Center apartment. The apartment is actually nicer than advertised and the website photos don't do it justice. It's huge, with lots of space for the 7 people we had there. The bedrooms and bathrooms are much larger and nicer than any other European hotels we've ever experienced. Also, it's in a perfect location within the walls of Lucca. We could walk to everything in town and the bus stop and train station. We took five day trips to Florence, Pisa, Rome, Viareggio and Cinque Terre which were very easy to get to yet we were so excited to get back "home" in the apartment in Lucca. Thanks to James and Marina for making our family vacation our best vacation yet! James even took us up into the Tuscan Hillside to view a few other Villas that he rents and Marina fielded a few phone calls for us while we were in Rome. Thanks again. We'll be back soon. Bill C and family, St. Louis, guests May 2013

 

My husband,our three children, and my Mom and Dad (7 people total) stayed in this apartment for four nights. The apartment is on the top floor/3rd floor of the building which allows for the most amazing views(an elevator is available to use if you don't want to walk up the stairs). The location couldn't have been better as it is located on the best street in Lucca and is right across from the ampitheatere. The apartment was very clean, spacious, and it seemed to have amazing views from every single room. We loved the apartment and hope to be able to stay there again on our next visit to Lucca. Kim B, Memphis, guest June 2013

 

 

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed ourselves in Lucca last week. The apartment is truly a charm and certainly lives up to its expectation from the pics on the website. We had the most wonderful time and hated to leave. Marina was so sweet and willing to help with anything we asked. I want her job, LOL. It was so good to meet you as well. Our vacation, with your help, was spectacular. We will be back.

This apartment is the most magnificent accommodation I have ever stayed in. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the walled city of Lucca. From the main floor living room to the top tower room and everything in between, we couldnt have wanted more. It is beautifully furnished and clean. Marina was so helpful and made us feel right at home. I only wish we could have stayed longer. It is truly a gem. We will be back. - Brenda P, Toronto Canada, guest Sept 2012

 

 

A beautiful apartment in an ideal location. Just spent 4 days in this apartment. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, spacious and perfectly located in the centre of Lucca. Would certainly come again. - Julie G, France guest July 2012

 

 

 

 

 

The apartment, unique in Lucca, has three terraces and its own private tower.  This was taken from one of the terraces, which is located on top of the tower.  The views are like this for 360degrees.  The panorama photo at the top of this page shows a bit more of the view.

Small sitting area

This photo was taken, standing on one of the terraces (5th floor of building), looking up at the tower.  There is a second large terrace on the left (off the tower room), then a spiral staircase leading to the top terrace, on top of the tower room, with 4 vases in the corners.
