About the villa

Beautiful Lucca is a little gem, encircled by massive medieval walls. Boutiques and bakeries, towers and palazzos, restaurants and Romanesque churches jostle for space in its narrow streets and picturesque piazzas, and the town is renowned for its warm and friendly atmosphere. In the centre of this remarkable place, La Mezzaluna makes a brilliant base from which to explore this and other Tuscan towns. Renovated to a high standard, and incorporating contemporary style with old world character, this is a welcoming and well-equipped apartment. With whitewashed beams, soft lighting and comfy seating in its living room, a crystal chandelier over the table in the kitchen/dining room, and a romantic double bedroom with pretty fabrics and picture-painted furniture, it would make a charming choice just for two. But the additional twin room and simply styled single mean there is ample space and comfort for a family of up to five. Lucca’s amenities are, of course, just a stroll away, and local transport puts Pisa, Florence, Siena and the coast all within easy reach.

About the area

Lucca, Pisa & Lunigiana

Average weather

Although they are only 17km apart, Pisa and Lucca instantly feel like different worlds. The former is a lively student city on the River Arno, and has one of the world’s most recognizable monuments: the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Understated Lucca is compact and genteel, ideal for a Tuscany villa nearby, with handsome piazzas that frame churches in the Luccan-Romanesque style. Those on a Lunigiana holiday occupy the Apennine foothills in far north-western Tuscany. It is rolling, blissfully empty terrain whose few inhabitants have cultural links with neighbouring Liguria.
