The Luxury Travel Book - Luxury apartment & villa accommodation to rent in beautiful destinations
Lucca, Italy · Apartment · 3 Bedrooms · 6 people
This recently restored apartment is one of the most beautiful and historic medieval apartments in the centre of Lucca. Its location in Piazza Cittadella is right at the heart of the pedestrianised ‘centro storico’, in front of the statue of the great composer, Giacomo Puccini, and adjacent to the birthplace and museum of Puccini. Lucca is undoubtedly one of the best preserved Romanesque cities in Europe, surrounded by its distinctive Renaissance walls, the perfect place for a cycle ride or walk while enjoying the wonderful views over the city and surrounding hills. Less than 100 metres from the apartment is the magnificent Church of San Michele. The distinctive Guinigi Tower is also just a short walk away. From the apartment you can also enjoy an incredible selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, all within easy walking distance. The olive oil and wine, for which the region is famous, are used in abundance in the local cuisine and it is possible to go on excursions to discover the nearby olive groves and vineyards.
The apartment has been restored with sympathy and taste, with an abundance of historic features being retained including the exposed original brickwork, oak beams and high vaulted ceilings. It offers a refined mixture of historical elegance combined with luxurious and up to date facilities. Very spacious, the accommodation is arranged over the third and fourth floors, accessed via a stone staircase. As this is a Category 1 listed building, there is no lift. Modern amenities include both central heating and air conditioning, satellite TV, audio system with CD player and radio and broadband internet access.
The main living area of the apartment is a large open plan L-shape, overlooking the piazza and with views to the hills, creating a comfortable relaxed space, perfect for socialising. The living area also has a grand piano. The bedrooms all offer views over Lucca, and the third bedroom accesses a small enclosed roof terrace. The accommodation is not suitable for young children and is non-smoking throughout.
