Apartment Jacopo

2 bedroom / 2 bathroom. Sleeps 6.

This gorgeous gem of an apartment has an unbeatable location, central to everything but tucked away in a quiet little courtyard. Its elegance is matched by all of the comfort and convenience it offers. It’s the perfect place to call home for a little (or a long) while. Right in the heart of town, you are just a 3-5 minute walk from 3 small grocers, 5 or 6 cafes, the main cathedral, 10 restaurants, and a number of shops. It doesn’t get more central than this!

This top-floor apartment features traditional Tuscan ceilings with exposed wood beams and tiles. The living area, decorated with tasteful antiques, has two armchairs and a new couch that converts to a comfortable sofa bed for an additional 2 persons.  From here, you access the charming loft-level master bedroom with queen-sized bed. The living room balcony windows overlook the lovely flower-filled courtyard below and provide a ton of natural light if desired (they also have full shutters to block out light entirely if preferred).

The large, well-equipped kitchen features granite counter tops, a full-sized refrigerator, stove top, coffeemaker, electric kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, and dining table. It is fully equipped with cookware and serving utensils, and we provide all of your starter materials like olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar.

The upstairs master bathroom, beautifully decorated in red marble tile, has a wonderful skylight and is equipped with a bathtub + shower, sink, toilet, and bidet. One of its most unique features is a lovely custom countertop, built from cabinets salvaged from an apothecary. A new washing machine is located upstairs in a utility room adjacent to the master bedroom.

The smaller second bedroom offers sleeping for two people in twin beds and has its own private bathroom (the beds can be combined to create a double upon request).  This portion of the apartment can be closed off with a locked door and even has its own entrance if desired, creating two totally separate bedroom quarters.

Both bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning 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.

Guest access
The apartment is independent (not shared with any other units in the building). It has independent heating & A/C, its own washing machine, and access to the elevator shared by the other residents of the building.

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.

Other things to note
The main bedroom area is on the loft level overlooking the living area.

Pricing Notes
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.

Don’t see quite what you’re looking for, or need room for more people?
We manage 6 units in the same building so we can almost always find something that will work! Our units combined sleep up to 24 people.  Just contact us and let us know what you need.

Apartment Bartolomeo

2 bedroom / 2 bathroom. Sleeps 6.

The cozy Bartolomeo apartment has an wonderful location directly in the center of town, tucked away in a quiet little courtyard off one of the main streets. You’re close to everything you need, but undisturbed by city noise. It really doesn’t get more central than this; in just a  3-5 minute walk, you’ll find 3 small grocers, 5 or 6 cafes, a number of shops, the main cathedral, and any number of excellent restaurants.

This charming top-floor apartment has a beautiful style that mixes traditional Italian furnishings with modern touches. It features a high-definition TV, WiFi, microwave convection oven, coffee maker, a toaster, an electric kettle, full-sized refrigerator, stove top, new cookware, and all dishes and utensils. If there’s a kitchen appliance that you don’t see listed, feel free to ask us! We also provide all of your starter materials like olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar.

The master bedroom has lovely, tall balcony windows that overlook the interior courtyard (they can also be shuttered as blackout curtains) and provides accommodation for two people with its large double bed and its spacious closet. The second bedroom provides sleeping for two people on two twin beds (which can be joined to form a queen bed upon request), as well as room for two additional people on the cozy loft level with its two twin beds (this area is best for children, as the ceiling is quite low). The second bedroom and bath have their own separate entrance, which allows for greater privacy for large groups. This apartment is also just across the hall from the Jacopo apartment, which means that rented together it becomes a suite for up to 12 persons.

Both bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning and are furnished with all new 160 thread count 100% cotton linens, down and / or synthetic filled duvets, and your choice of synthetic or down pillows. The bathrooms are beautifully decorated in red marble tile with skylights and are equipped with a shower and/or bathtub as well as sink, toilet, and bidet.  The washing machine is located near the master bedroom/bathroom.

The building’s enviable location makes it ideal for exploring all that Lucca has to offer. Since it is located in the physical center of the historic center, all of Lucca is no more than a few minutes away on foot. From here you can explore the amazing boutique shops that line Via Santa Croce and nearby Via Fillungo, visit the city’s museums, theaters and concert halls, eat at any of the dozens of excellent local restaurants, and, of course, go for a leisurely stroll on the city’s astonishing (and enormous) city walls. Being flat, Lucca is very bike-friendly and bikes (and pedal-cars) are inexpensive to rent for the day at any of a number of local shops.

Lucca is also the perfect city to explore all of Tuscany. Lucca uniquely combines an important mix of ingredients that we believe you’ll find nowhere else in Tuscany. Its location is perfect for exploration: 30 minutes from the Leaning Tower and Pisa International, 30 minutes from the beaches of Viareggio, 45 minutes from the mountains, 60 minutes by train to Florence, and an easy 1-2 hour drive to Siena, Volterra, and the rest of Tuscany.

Apartment Mignon

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom.  Sleeps 2-4.

Apartment Mignon is our cozy little studio flat, located right in the heart of Lucca. It is within a 5-minute walk of the entire town center and Lucca’s fabulous walls and best of all, the apartment is nestled away in a quiet little courtyard where you are protected from city noise.

The apartment has a loft-style layout with a double bed on the loft level and a living area downstairs. It sleeps two people comfortably, but can accommodate a third guest (or possibly two small children) if needed on the futon. The bed is new with 100% cotton / high thread-count sheets and your choice of down or synthetic pillows. The futon opens up to double-bed size but does take up a lot of the living area when open so we recommend using it as a single bed if sleeping just one additional guest.

The bedroom on the loft-level is accessed by a narrow stair and has a low ceiling. As noted in our reviews (going back over 7 years), it isn’t a problem for the majority of our guests but we like to make sure you’re aware of it! The bathroom, located on the main level, is finished in beautiful red marble and offers a full-sized shower, bidet, toilet, and sink.

The new kitchenette features a small refrigerator, mini-dishwasher, electric cooktop, coffeemaker, electric kettle, microwave, and washer machine.  We make it easy for you by providing you with starter amounts of all the basics you’ll need like local olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, and coffee.

The apartment is small but highly functional. With free wi-fi, all utilities, included, a washing machine, elevator access, and its incredible location in the center of town, this apartment is a fantastic value.

If you would like to book for less than the minimum number of nights (3), please contact us and we’ll see what we can work out.
