I am 63 years old and I live in Lucca with my husband Giorgio. I love traveling and so I often use the web to look for accommodations around the world that fit my needs. I am passionate about tennis that I practice, and volleyball that I practiced when I was younger. I am passionate about technology, Mac, iphone, etc., and photography. Summer is my season !, when I can stay in the sun to sleep!
Gabriella purchased this Apartment in 1997
Why Gabriella chose Lucca
In 2009 we completely renovated the attic, which was in our house, to obtain an independent apartment for our daughter Alessia who lived there until 2014; having then moved to another house we have also designed this property for tourism use to obtain a small income that helps her in the management of her life.
100% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date.
The apartment had everything we needed and more. Our host was very gracious! It was a little off the beaten path which added to it's charm. Would be perfect if you had your transportation. Public transportation is a bit of a hike.
Despite being close to the historic center (about 2 km), our property is located in a very green and quiet area; during the summer, in particular, you can enjoy a microclimate pleasantly cooler and more ventilated, also enjoying a large garden, a barbecue area, and our well-equipped swimming pool.
Our city, Lucca, is a small medieval town, but of ancient Roman origins; perfectly preserved it is surrounded by a ring of beautiful Walls of 1500, now the city park.
It is situated in a strategic position to easily and quickly reach many famous Tuscan cities of art: Florence, 60 km. (about 70 minutes by car or train); Pisa, 25 km. (about 30 minutes by car or train); Siena, 130 km. (about 90 minutes by car). Not to mention many other beautiful places less known but very interesting as Vinci, San Gimignano, Torre del Lago Puccini and many others.
Moreover, the famous sandy beaches of Versilia, the marvelous Cinque Terre National Park, the evocative landscapes of the Garfagnana and the Apuan Alps can be reached in about 60 minutes by car.
