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.
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.
When 2 guests book we generally assume 1 bedroom/1 bathroom occupancy; if this is not the case, please message us 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 dress appropriately and you turn off the heat when you leave, there should be no need to be concerned about gas usage.
