Apartment Valletta

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom, sleeps 4.

Welcome to Casa Valletta! This stylish, charming apartment is located in the heart of the city, in a neighborhood that still retains all of its local character. This beautiful home was lovingly decorated and cared for by our friend Eleonora, and now we look forward to offering you this cozy space to use as your home base during your stay in our lovely town.

This great 1-bedroom apartment is perfect for a couple that wants to be within the city walls. Here you are a short 5-minute walk from the Anfiteatro, the city walls, Lucca Italian School, and so much more!

Upon entering the apartment, you’ll be struck by the warm tones of the floor and the beamed ceiling, all suffused with natural daylight. The comfortable living area offers a new couch (which can also open to sleep 2 additional guests) and a dining table for 4 people. Feel free to browse our books! There is also a TV with an Amazon Firestick. The living room/kitchen area does not have A/C, but it’s really not needed; the house stays very cool, and there is a large fan as well as mosquito screens. The bedroom *does* have A/C.

Just off of the living room, you’ll find the bright, cozy kitchen. It is compact, but well-stocked and has everything you’ll need to make meals at home during your stay if you’d like. There’s a full-sized fridge and freezer, a 4-burner gas stove with electric oven, a dishwasher, and more. We provide a mokapot (the traditional Italian stove top coffee maker) as well as a drip coffee machine.

Down the hall you’ll find the bathroom with a large walk-in shower (not easy to find in Italy!), complete with toilet, bidet, and a large sink, as well as plenty of shelves for your personal items.

The bedroom has a queen bed and a very large wardrobe, as well as a small work desk. There is a Smart TV mounted on the bedroom wall. The bedroom has A/C and mosquito screens.

The Loft apartment is located on the first floor of a lovely historic palazzo. You can access the apartment via the stairs or the elevator. It has been recently remodeled in a beautiful style of traditional and antique Italian furnishings updated with modern touches.

The apartment has a large open-space living area, a delightful terrace, a well-equipped kitchen, a lovely master bedroom with in-suite bath, a cozy second bedroom with shared bath, single sleeper sofa. The building is in an unbeatable location in a quiet little courtyard, just 100 meters from Via Santa Croce, one of the main streets that bisects the center of town.

Since you are right in the center of town, you’re only 2 or 3 minutes from a number of small grocers, supermarkets, cafes, the main cathedral, restaurants, and a number of shops. It doesn’t get more central than this!

Upon entering the apartment you will be impressed by the apartment’s beautiful wood and metalwork ceilings with exposed wood, steel and tiles. The living area features a huge antique dining / work table and ample space for relaxing or enjoying your favorite film on the 43″ 4K smart TV.

You will love the beautiful and secluded terrace that offers an outdoor area for dining and relaxing and a storage area with washing machine.

The bedroom and living room are equipped with air conditioning and independent central heating. The double bed is 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. 

Please note that the 2nd bedroom is windowless. To assist, we have installed a custom-built system that simulates natural lighting cycles as if from a skylight.

The kitchen is equipped with all-stainless counter tops, 5-burner cook top with full gas stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and bar. It is fully-equipped with new cookware and serving pieces.

The bathrooms are each beautifully decorated in marble tile are equipped with showers, sink, toilet, and bidet.

The palazzo’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 has a unique combination of benefits 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, 80 minutes by train to Florence, and an easy 1-2 hour drive to Siena, Volterra, and the rest of Tuscany.

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.

Guest access

The apartment and the little terrace are all yours! The apartment has independent heating and A/C and is totally private to you.
