Casa Gemma is an independent apartment of two floors. It has been recently refurnished and it can host up to 6 people. It is located at the corner of Via Fillungo, the main street of the historic centre of Lucca.

The space

The beautifully landscaped Villa Bottini is only a 5-minute walking distance from this country-style apartment with flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi and laundry facilities.

Located on an upper level, there is a double room with a courtyard view as well as a twin room. Featuring exposed wooden beams and characteristic tiled floors, the kitchen/dining/living room is equipped with a sofa bed. The courtyard is gated and is suitable for eating lunch or dinner, or for simply relaxing in the sun.

Within a 7-minute walking distance lies Orto Botanico Comunale di Lucca Botanical Gardens which contain a greenhouse, a botanical school, and laboratories. Piazza Napoleone Square is a 10-minute walk away and is dominated by the Ducal Palace.

Famous for its intact Renaissance-era city walls, Lucca is an ancient city full of many architectural delights. Only found within the city is Buccellato, a sweet-bread with its own unique taste.

Fantastic location! Felt in in the hub of Luchesse life. Everyday was a new experience in the medieval city.

Elisa has a very unique contemporary rental in a wonderful little town. Make sure you rent bikes and ride around the wall!

Elisa made us feel very welcome and even presented us with a few delicious baked treats upon arrival. The place was nice, clean and had a superb location. Definitely would stay here again.

This apartment was perfect for our two-night stay in Lucca! The apartment is two stories, and my boyfriend and I (it was just the two of us) felt like the apartment was extremely luxurious, especially since we did not even touch the second bedroom! The place is very shiny, new, and clean. The kitchen is beautiful, and we only wished we could have stayed longer to actually use all that it provided! (Toaster, hot water heater, stove, oven, fridge, moka pot, all possible pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, etc.) Our only complaint was that we could not figure out how to use the washing machine! Either we couldn't understand the instructions/symbols, or the machine was broken... Besides the complaint about the washing machine, we would definitely recommend this apartment! Especially if you have two more people, to sleep in the room with two single beds.

This was a lovely place for us to stay. Very well located in the historic centre but very quiet at night. Lucca is a great spot for exploring Tuscany by bike & it is easy to get to Cinque Terre by train for the day. ELISA was an excellent host - she provided lots of useful local info & booked a taxi for us for our return to the train station. The apartment is very spacious & comfortable & had everything we needed for our stay

This is a beautifully comfortable apartment in an idea location. We expected a dream holiday, and we had one, in Lucca. Elisa is a great host, and we were in communication, but unfortunately did not get to meet, although she always made arrangements for everything to go easily for us. We enjoyed time staying in the apartment relaxing as well as wandering around the town.

Elisa was very attentive and communicated well with me from the start. The apartment was just what I expected and worked well for me. From there it was easy to get around the city. There was even a bike rental place just a block or so away. I would recommend the apartment and Elisa to anyone who wants to be in the heart of Lucca.
