Ostuni città bianca

Quaint, mysterious, and charming, Lucca is one of the finest towns to visit in Tuscany. Featuring an alluring historic centre, filled with medieval towers and buildings, the town lies on a plain less than 30 minutes away from the Versilia coast right at the base of the Apuan Alps.

It is located 75km west of Florence and can be easily reached via car, bus, or train from any city in Tuscany. A marvellous town for walking, biking, and shopping, it is home to hundred and one churches(yes, that’s the exact number!), historic museums, stunning gardens, and a lot more.

Take a stroll along the ancient walls of the city, offering panoramic views of this lovely region. Admire the rich variety of flora at the Lucca Botanical Park. Step back in time visiting the Roman Amphitheatre. Revel in the masterpieces of Italian artists at the Palazzo Mansi. Shop at the Teatro del Giglio antique market square. Taste Lucchese cuisine. Do all these and much more by comfortably staying at the cosy and indulgent self-catering apartments of Residence Alfoionco.

Surrounded by the lush countryside of Tuscan, these accommodations are set in a peaceful woodland area, only 6km away from the historic centre of Lucca. The apartments, with rustic furnishing and a range of modern amenities, are spacious, well-lit, and super-comfy. There only 8 apartments, so you can expect personalised services with love and care from the hosts.

Take a lazy walk around the fields to pick and relish a variety of fresh fruits. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the sprawling saltwater swimming pool. Chill out on the patios. A stay in Residence Alfoionco offers unforgettable moments like no other.
