Lucca Palazzo apartment

Lucca, Tuscany, Italy


City Centre Boltholes

In the very heart of Lucca is this bright and stylish apartment. Housed in an ancient city building it retains it architectural integrity but with the comfort and intimacy that make it a modern bolthole perfect for two.  Exploring or escaping, it is the perfect city centre launch pad to exploring this amazing city.

The Location

The Tuscan town of Lucca is one of those places that not everyone visits, but those that do tend to fall in love with it. Its mellow tiled roofs cluster around the old city walls, the 5th century Guinigi tower, the beautiful Piazza dell’Anfiteatro for coffee, the shops in Via Fillungo, the Medieval cobbled streets… Really, can you get more Italian?

This apartment is brilliantly located to make exploring Lucca easy but at the same time are quiet enough to let you escape for a quiet afternoon – Via Guinigi (Palazzo Orscucci) is pedestrianised (there is parking nearby though) – before you head out to make the most of the restaurants offering everything from minimalist nouvelle cuisine to traditional Tuscan stews.

If you want to explore further then Florence and Pisa are nearby – with their international airports – and can be reached by bus or train which is far nicer than by car if you can avoid it. The countryside surrounding Lucca is the rolling Tuscan hills you associate with this beautiful region.

  • The proportions of the rooms are incredible. Palazzo Orsucci has massively high ceilings with original oak beams and frescos are flooded with light from the huge windows
  • The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need if you want to practice your Italian cooking
  • The Medieval laneways of ancient Lucca that surround Palazzo Orsucci are incredibly atmospheric and wandering them easily whiles away an afternoon – and the view from the bed just lovely
  • Down the stairs (no lifts so not ideal if you are unsteady on your pins) and you’re in café culture paradise. The Italians love to people watch (who doesn’t?) and Lucca is the perfect place to do it
  • The apartment sleeps two, with large reception and bedroom and fully fitted modern kitchen
  • The bathroom is unmistakably Italian, offering a top quality shower, hairdryer, etc – think boutique hotel
  • Huge TV and Wifi provided
  • Central heating and air con for seasonal variations in the Tuscan weather
  • Maid service is included for longer stays

Stefano and Paola have found their groove. After leaving corporate careers they opened first opened LA PALAZZETTA DEL VESCOVO before turning their attention to this lovely spot in the heart of Lucca. They are passionate about Italian heritage and have restored the original features of the buildings, retaining the regal proportions of the rooms, but cleverly incorporated what you expect in a modern apartment.
