Traditional apartment inside Lucca walls. On the second floor with a view of the bell tower. It has original large windows making it very bright, and high ceilings with traditional "cotto" flooring. Fully equipped kitchen. Parking nearby.

The space

Fabulous location! My apartment is located in a silent and narrow street just a few steps away from the Walls. It's 5 minutes walking from one of the 7 gates of the city. 1 minute from the square for all the buses leaving for surrounding areas including Florence, Pisa, the airport, and the sea. 7 minutes walk to the train station. 5 minutes walk to Guinigi Tower.

You will be right in the hearth of the city! The people of Lucca love their walks on the wall ("un giro delle mura"). Join them on a fresh morning run on the Walls (4.2km around), or maybe a relaxing walk during sunset (there are plenty of seats and statues with the mountains in the background). After the round over the Wall stop at Gelateria Veneta for a memorable gelato or a fruity sorbetto.

Car parks are super close to the apartment. You can choose between indoor or outdoor car parks too. You will have to pay for all spaces, but the outdoor one is free during the night until 8am in the morning.

For any tips, do not hesitate to contact me. We have left a booklet in the house (right next to the TV) that includes recommendations for cafe's, restaurants, best pizza and best gelato places in town, and a bunch of a very typical restaurants where you can try real tuscan dishes. In the same booklet you will find tips and directions to reach the main spots around Lucca like Pisa, Firenze, Cinque Terre, beaches, mountains spot, countryside and the typical tuscan hills. There is help on where to find things in the apartment too.

Guest access

The apartment is on the second floor. Once you are there you can appreciate the fantastic view over the city's roofs. The house is extremely bright all day long.

Interaction with guests

Email me or message me on my english mobile or through the AirBnB app and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Other things to note

I live in London but my apartment in Lucca is very much "lived in" so it still feels like home sweet home when we return.

Apartment catered for all of our needs; fantastic location and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped which allowed us to prepare our own meals. Check in was simple enough. On departure the cleaners arrived as we were packing and pushed their way into the apartment. We told them we weren't checking out until 10 (we'll before the check out time) but due to us not speaking any Italian and them English they could not understand. Slightly uncomfortable for a tourist as we had repeatedly asked them to leave and come back when we had finished packing.

The apartment is in a superb location within the walls of this enchanting little city, which made it easy for us to explore Lucca itself on foot and take day trips to the surrounding area without a car. The apartment is on the top floor of a historical building and as charming as it appears in the photographs. There is an air conditioning unit in the living room and a powerful fan in the bedroom to cool the flat in summer. There's a rather noisy pump to assist the drainage in the bathroom and an unpleasant smell that wafts from the bathroom drains - a minor inconvenience in an otherwise enjoyable stay.

My husband, 5 month old son and I stayed in Ilara's flat for 4 nights during our visit to Tuscany for a friend's wedding. Ilara's mother Marilena met us at the flat (which is just around the corner from where we took the bus to/from Pisa airport). Marilena was extremely helpful throughout our stay, checking in with us and helping us with any questions we had. The location of the flat is perfect, it is within the Lucca walls which means everything is in walking distance. It was great to see that the pictures and description accurately reflected the accommodation and amenities as well. Fantastic value for money and an overall great first AirBnB experience.

A clean and bright personalised apartment providing a comfortable and well located base to explore Lucca or further away-we took a bus to Florence as there are good transport links. Lucca is really interesting and the view from Guinigi Tower is worth the climb. All went smoothly making the booking and planning with the host and then her Mother about meeting and greeting. Thank you both.

The flat was in a convenient, quiet position in the city and felt homely. Ilaria's mother greeted us and was extremely charming and helpful; she kindly left us some provisions and even arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the end of our stay. Would thoroughly recommend!
