Apartment Teo

1 bedroom / 2 bathroom.  Sleeps 4.

This apartment is located in a lovely historic building that dates back 7 centuries. It has been recently updated in a beautiful style of traditional and antique Italian furnishings updated with modern touches.

The apartment has an unbeatable location directly in the center of town. You’re right in the heart of everything, yet the apartment is very quiet and peaceful. There are no neighbors on any side of you, and the street below is pedestrian only, which means that it is very quiet at night (no noisy buses or scooters!).

Since you are right in the center of town, you are steps away from 3 small grocers, 5 or 6 cafes, the main cathedral, 10 restaurants, and Via Fillungo, the shopping paradise of Lucca. It doesn’t get more central than this!

The apartment is spacious and full of light. The living area has a big comfortable couch and armchair, a new TV and DVD player plus iPod deck, as well as a laptop-friendly office area with a printer (USB connection). The couch can be opened into a sofa bed for an additional 2 persons.

The dining area leads onto the beautiful terrace, which is equipped with a table and chairs for 4, as well as two lounge chairs. There is a washing machine in the utility room out on the terrace as well.  Kick back with a book or a glass of Lucca’s wonderful local wines after a long day of sight-seeing!

The kitchen features stainless steel counter tops, a refrigerator, 4-burner gas stove top, an electric oven, coffeemaker, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, blender, food processor, and more. If there’s something you need that you don’t see listed, just ask!  We love to cook, and you’ll find it is fully equipped with cookware and serving utensils. We also provide you with starter amounts of the basics like local olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar.

Both bathrooms are beautifully decorated in marble and tile; the downstairs bathroom has a shower, sink, and toilet, while the upstairs also has a bathtub and bidet (as well as a shower, sink, and toilet).

You are only a 5-10 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.

If you prefer to book through Airbnb, the unit is also available here.

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.

Apartment Loft

1 bedroom / 2 bathroom. Sleeps 4.

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 cozy bedroom, sleeper sofa, and 2 bathrooms. 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.

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 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 a showers, sink, and toilet. The master bathroom also features a 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.
