2 bedroom / 3 bathroom. Sleeps 7-8.
This large, sunny apartment is located in a wonderfully-maintained historic building that dates back 7 centuries. It has been recently remodeled in a beautiful, traditional Tuscan style that has been updated with modern touches. The apartment has two large sitting areas, an office space, a well-equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2 sleeper sofas. It sleeps 7-8 people comfortably. The apartment is right in the city center, so you are close to everything Lucca has to offer!
Since you are in the heart of Lucca, you’re just a 1-minute walk from 3 small grocers, and only a 2-minute stroll from 5 or 6 cafes, the main cathedral, 10 restaurants, and a number of shops. It doesn’t get more central than this!
The kitchen is fully-equipped with a full-sized refrigerator/freezer, stove top, oven, coffeemaker, microwave, and dining table, as well as brand-new cookware and serving utensils for 8 people. There is a dishwasher, a washing machine, a TV + DVD, and if there’s something that you need that you don’t see listed here, just ask us and we’ll see what we can do. We also provide you with starter amounts of the basics like local olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar.
The master bedroom has a new bed and giant closet with full-length mirrors. The ensuite master bathroom is beautifully decorated in marble tile and is equipped with a bathtub + shower, sink, toilet, and bidet.
The second bedroom offers sleeping for two people in twin beds and has its own ensuite bathroom complete with shower, toilet, sink, and bidet. The beds can also be combined to create a queen bed upon request.
The living areas each have a sleeper sofa; one is a queen-sized sleeper sofa, the other is smaller and better suited to one adult or 2 children, plus there is an additional full bathroom, complete with shower, located in the common area.
The bedrooms and living areas are equipped with air conditioning. The bedrooms have new mattresses and new pillows and are furnished with all new 160 thread count 100% cotton linens, your choice of down or synthetic filled duvets, and your choice of synthetic or down pillows.
You are only a 6-8 minute walk from the train station or the bus station that will take you to Pisa, Viareggio, Firenze, Cinque Terre, and all over Tuscany and the Garfagnana.
We can also make suggestions for guided wine tastings, tours, airport transfers, babysitting, and more, so don’t hesitate to ask how we can make your trip better!
The apartment is independent (not shared with any other units in the building). It has independent heating & A/C and its own washing machine.
Interaction with the Hosts
As much or as little as you like! One of us is always available for questions, or we can leave you to explore on your own. Whatever you prefer.
When 2 guests book we generally assume 1 bedroom/1 bathroom occupancy; if this is not the case, please message me before booking. For long-term stays we can offer a discount to parties of 2 that only want to use 1 bed/1 bath; we close off the second bedroom/bathroom, which allows us to save on cleaning and utility costs and pass the savings on to you! If you prefer to use Airbnb, the unit is also available here.
*Please note* that due to extreme volatility in energy prices, we require guests to be careful in their energy consumption, which includes turning off AC and heat when leaving the apartment for the day and, when possible, using large appliances (running the dishwasher, etc) in the nighttime hours. Beginning November 1, 2022, we will charge for additional gas usage above the threshold established by the government. We will read the gas meter together on arrival and the night before departure and will calculate the difference owed, which will be payable before departure. As long as you are dress appropriately and you turn off the heat when you leave, there is no need to be concerned about gas usage.
