Great apt right next to the train station' so very easy to get to. Gionata was a great host - he greeted me as I was walking out of the station, and gave some tips on where to get groceries,nearby walks, etc. When the WiFi needed fixing he was very nice about it and addressed it immediately.
Lucca's old town is only a very short walk from the apt. Best of all was being able to use one of the bikes that he offers with the apt to explore the town and ride along the old walls! Lucca was the highlight of my trip, grazzie Gionata!
Wonderful experience. Fresh, clean and excellent location to old city and rail. Gionata an excellent host.

Lucca is fantastic town to enjoy as well as being in easy travelling distance of Florence, the Cinque Terra and all of Tuscany. Our apartment enabled us to do this by simply crossing the street! Gionata is a most attentive host, setting up his apt so that all your needs are anticipated. the spacious bedrooms and kitchen made for comfortable, relaxed living. The apt was very clean and uncluttered and even though the rhythm of the trains close by added some life to the view, they stopped running overnight so good sleep was ensured.
we had a wonderful stay in Lucca thanks to Gionata. He was kind and welcoming when we arrived, eager to show us around the flat and tell us about his hometown. The apartment was spacious, well lit, clean and nicely decorated in a simple modern fashion. Everything worked perfectly, we made full use of the kitchen and washing facilities and used the bikes to ride all around Lucca which is a wonderful way to see the place (despite it being very crowded and difficult to navigate during the summer festival - which is awesome btw). The flat (as Gionata will explain) is close to grocery shopping and great italian pizza and food, right next to the train station and very close to the oldtown of Lucca- it is exactly as described.
All in all we had a wonderful stay and would recommend this place to anyone as it was absolutely perfect.

Enjoyed staying at Gionata's flat, very conveniently located just outside the walls, everything's within walking distance. Flat's nice and spacious, well equiped kitchen. Gionata was a great host - he offered to pick us up from the airport for a small charge which was really convenient and even took us out for dinner on our first night!
Great place outside the wall of Lucca but only 5min walk and you're within. 2 min walk to train which is great for visiting Florence etc. Lucca is a delight and having Gionata's great flat to stay in was wonderful. It's really spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We were only 2 people but it would easily take 4 adults, everything is there and the beds are great which is really important. All communication was terrific and Gionata contacted us a couple of days before to check arrival time and he was there waiting for us, across the road from the train. Flat is very quiet at night for sleeping and you can't hear the trains. A great place in Lucca without the cost of staying inside the walls, also means that if you have a car you can find a park. Just a mention on the water. You can drink the water that comes from the taps, but I think it is very hard. Across the road is a water pump where the locals come for fresh drinking water for the house, flagon after flagon. This water comes from the mountains via aqueducts and it's beautiful - and just opposite the flat. Also no wifi but you can get it free in the main square of Lucca, some restaurants or pay at the tourist office.
Gionata's flat is beautifully airy and clean. Two ample sized double rooms, and a great kitchen/living space. In other self catering places the shelves can be bare but Gionata leaves a few bits and bobs to get you started.
On previous visits to Lucca I've always stayed within the walls, so was a bit trepidatious being outside them and indeed on the "wrong side of the tracks" but quickly became fond of my daily routine of a wander into town (7 mins to walls?) or hiring a bicycle from by the station for the day. Staying outside the walls is particularly useful if you have a car as you can actually park. Be warned you cannot even drive into the walled town unless you have a permit.
Gionata was very helpful when we asked for an extra set of keys and whizzed round the same day. Our only hiccup was when we realised the 5th bed is really only to accommodate a child and is in one of the bedrooms. (My fault for not checking!).
A beautiful, spacious and immaculate apartment only a few minutes stroll from the centre of Lucca. Gionata is a fantastic host and words cannot do this accommodation justice. Everything is provided for a very enjoyable stay and the apartment is furnished to the highest of standards. We will definitely be booking again and exploring more of Tuscany. 10/10
