What Past Guests Are Saying
Great base for exploring Lucca
Our fantastic hosts Patrizia and Renzo made us feel right at home in their beautiful villa, which was well appointed and had lots of space inside. It was very homely and had a lovely courtyard in the front. The off street parking was also a bonus. It was an easy 10 minute walk to one of the gates to enter Lucca, with restaurants and shops along the way. Our hosts lived adjacent to the property, spoke good English and were a wealth of information and helped us with any questions we had. This was a great property for our family of 5, with 3 children under 12.

Perfect week in Lucca
We had a wonderful week in Lucca, a family of five. Our three girls are 14, 19 and 23 with various preferences for a good vacation :) We found Patrizia and Lorenzos apartment the perfect match for us. Their hospitality and all their generous tips on where to go added a lot of value for us. They even helped out when our youngest daughter needed to see a doctor during the week. We rented their vintage bikes and that was an important key for a good stay. Walking distance to Lucca is a bit much when the temperature rises after nine. Bicycling is brilliant for exploring Lucca and beyond. I went for several longer rides in the early morning on the bike tracks along the river. The water is also quite refreshing :)

Villino Franca was very comfortable, great location, and Patrizi
Villino Franco is very comfortable with two bedrooms, a fully equiped kitchen, eating area and sitting room. A couple items you do not see in Europe were especially nice; a covered car port in front and a large bathroom (huge shower). Our two week stay gave us the opportunity to "live like Italians". Patrizia is a wonderful hostess and with her speaking English, she gave us many great recommendations for day trips and resturants. The location is perfect for day trips to Cararra, Cinque Terra, Pisa, and many beautiful small towns. It is a comfortable walk to Lucca's walled city. This is our second trip to Italy and was the best. Our third trip will include another great stay at Patrizia's Villino Franca there is still a lot more to see and do. We recommend to all who want to see and experience beautiful Italy.
Jentetur til Lucca
Av annonsen til Villino Franca fremkom det at det var plass til fem personer. Vi var seks jenter som skulle på tur og spurte derfor om det var mulig å være seks. Og det var det (selvfølgelig, sa den hyggelige eieren). Med fint vær hele tiden "levde" vi ute i den koselige hagen når vi var hjemme, så det var helt uproblematisk å bo seks.
Vi ble møtt med god service hele veien. Velkomstdrikk når vi ankom, privatsjåfør til stor og billig kolonial, privatsjåfør til nydelig italiensk restaurant (som vi aldri ville ha funnet på egenhånd) m.m.
Vi fikk også hjelp til booke en kombinert sykkeltur/besøk på vingård. På vingården satt vi fra oss sykkelene (etter 3,5 mil). Når besøket på vingården var over ble vi kjørt til Montecarlo for shopping, før det bar hjem igjen.
Huset ligger litt på utsiden av bymuren i Lucca,i en stille og rolig gate. Det tok ca 10 minutter å gå til bymuren, men for oss var ikke det noe problem.
Oppholdet var preget av service hele veien og kan godt anbefales til andre.
Beautiful House with a short walk to the walled city of Lucca
It's always hard to pick a rental home/apartment when you don't know what you are getting or whether it is true to the profile or pictures put up especially when you don't live in the country or know the area.
Lucca Villino France is a complete gem !!
When doing research this particular home appealed from the beginning, a group of us liked the pictures, character of the house and also that there was a nice terrace front.
We got in touch and were pleasantly surprised that the owner Patrizia got back to us almost immediately. She was very friendly, trusting, accomodating and helped us with pretty much everything we needed to know about our trip.
The house itself is a typically old italian style house but with most mod cons (which do not stuck out like a sore thumb)which is nice.
It is extremely clean and it is a furnished with everything that you might need for your stay.
It even has enough kitchenware without you having to wash dishes before you use them again (some places only put out just the basics).
We even asked Patrizia to borrow her blender which was a handover over the garden wall (!) She lives next door but gives you complete privacy. She herself is a Lucca born native so her history of the town and the surrounding area is just amazing.
We also fell in love with her personality as she is always smiling and her laughter is contagious. Very nice lady.
The location of the house is just perfect - it is outside of the wall of Lucca but only a 5-10 min walk in.
As we had a car it was important we found somewhere with a driveway, we also found that the rentals were cheaper and also houses/apartments were larger outside of the wall.
Lucca Villino Franco was a great find.
I would absolutely recommend this place as it is not just a rental for a holiday but it felt like a home away from home and some of that was due to our host Patrizia.
I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did - we will definitely be back.

A lovely time in Lucca
We are a family of four (2 adults, 2 small children) who stayed at Villino Franca for three weeks in apil-may. The appartement was perfect for us: fully equipped, a nice garden, close to city-centre, quiet and easy parking.
Patrizia and Renzo was perfect hosts and made us all feel very welcome.
We would highly recomend a stay at Villino Franca!
Port Macquarie, Australia
A wonderful experience.
My husband and I were welcomed by Patrizia and her daughter Monica - they had prepared the house with flowers, fruit, wine ... and heating for the cold and wet January morning.
The house had everything we required and was positioned a short walk from the walls of Lucca. After having travelled for a few weeks, it was lovely to be able to self-cater. The free wi-fi and new internet capable digital TV were great to have.
Lucca was delightful and we managed to fill a week with only 2 day trips - one to the mountains and one to the sea - the remainder of our time we spent in Lucca with beautiful sunny weather. The nearby shops provided fresh pasta, coffee and bread; the house was cosy and comfortable and our delightful hosts were able to offer suggestions for a special restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday.
We're hoping to come back next year in Spring!

Thank you indeed Susanna for your good words! It has been a pleasure for us to have had you and Terry here at our house and we look forward to meet you soon again! Patrizia and Monica

Perfect location for a city break and visit to Tuscany
I stayed three weeks in this nice apartment and got on very well. My hostess Patrizia was just absolutely outstanding. She gave advice about this and that and had a unique local knowledge of Lucca and the surrounding area. It was of course a great advantage that she spoke both Norwegian and English fluently.
Patrizia rented me a bike and I explored Lucca both by bicycle and on foot. A short bike ride from the apartment and you are in the countryside! A short busride and you are in Pisa or Florence or a number of villages surrounding Lucca. I was also lucky to visit Patrizias house in the countryside. An ideal vacation would be a week in town and a week in this house in the countryside!
The big family
We stayed for 2 weeks in Villino Franca. Patrizia & Renzo with family were perfect hosts, and gave us information and tips about the surrounding aereas that we would never have found in ordinary tourist guides. They definately made our stay in Lucca/ Tuscany extraordinary!
The house was nice and clean, and wery well equipped. The walking distance from the old town was perfect (Our 5 year old just about made it home on his own feet every night :-)
We will defenately come back! Probably allready next year..
Nice and very helpful host, nice house, OK location. Cool parking.

A perfect stay
Villino Franca was a perfect base for our vacation in Lucca. Perfect service, the house was beautiful, Lucca was beautiful and so was Patrizia and Renzo. Patrizia gave us a lot of information about the old town and the area around. We loved the nice outdoor area at the house with a lovely smal garden with parking space for our car. Its quite possible that we will come back for another stay in Villino Franca!
Estancia super acogedora para la familia
Unos anfitriones excelentes. La casa es muy acogedora, decorada con gusto y con las comodidades para unas vacaciones relajadas. Tan fresca que no necesitamos encender la refrigeración. Localizada en una zona muy cómoda con acceso a pié a muchas áreas atractivas de la hermosa ciudad de Lucca. Disfrutamos mucho nuestra estancia!
Perfect Tuscan retreat
We really enjoyed our stay at this comfy home in lovely Lucca. The accomodation was perfect, with the heat at night the air conditioning was particularly appreciated . Our hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming.
The city was beautiful with pleanty to do, and loads of lovely places to eat.
It was easy to travel to Pisa and Florence by train, at very reasonable cost.
Overall my family had a great weeks break based in perfect Tuscan accomodation.
Thank you so much for providing us with a lovely base for our Tuscan holiday.

good location, beatiful apartment and fantastic hospitality
Patrizia and Renzo gave us a fantastic experience in Tuscany and Lucca. The apartment complied with every requirement our family had for a pleasant stay, as well as Patrzia's and Renzo's discrete care for our comfort. Their local knowledge gave us experiences we never could have found without their help. The children really appreciated the free internet access, and we appreciated the beatiful renovated apartment in the quiet neighbourhood.
thank you for a wonderful stay!
Lucca was a nice town and our hosts perfect
We arrived late in the evening in Lucca and Patrizia met us at the railway station.
Lucca was a perfect base for getting to Pisa, Firenze and Cinque Terre. The old town inside the wall was also nice. Many nice restaurants and shops. You can also go for walks/jogging on the town wall.
The house was very comfortable and nicely decorated with all the equipment you need. No problem enjoying a meal at home also. It was also very nice to come back in the evening and sit in the garden. There is also a parking space for a car.
Patrizia speaks fluent Norwegian which is convienient for Scandinavians.
We would like to come back anytime!

Nice Villa, nice hosts and nice town...
Me, my husband and my sister stayed in Villino Franca for 4 nights, from 16 - 20 of may 2011. We just loved the house, the town, the people, but most of all our hosts Patrizia and Renzo.They made our stay very special and we are very grateful.
Lucca, and its surroundings was a very nice place to spend some days of our vacation in Toscany. It is a very relaxed and beautiful town. We feel that we could have spent several days more there, so we will be back for sure...
The house, Villino Franca, was very nice, clean, good beds, nice to have a kitchen and big bathroom. . We especially loved the garden where we could sit outside and eat, take a drink and relax (we even celebrated our Norwegian national day, may 17, with champagne breakfast there).
The distance to centrum was perfect We recommend everyone to rent bikes and take a trip along the river and into the town - very nice and easy!
We are very happy to recommend this comfortable and good value accommodation to others.
Lovely 2 bedroom house with warm, welcoming and very helpful hos
Villino Franca is a lovely 2 bedroom house and easy flat 10 minutes walk (15 with children) down one road to the old city. Patrizia and Renzo are wondeful hosts. Patrizia surprised us by meeting us at the station on arrival and couldn't have been more helpful during our stay. She was wonderful with our young children taking the time to teach them some new Italian words and introducing them to her daughters kitten. Renzo dropped us at the station on our departure which was very much apprecited. We are very happy to recommend this comfortable and good value accommodation to others.
Fantastic days in Lucca!
Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Villino Franca for ten days in September. It´s situated just outside the town wall of Lucca, which makes it a perfect place to stay, considdering you don´t have to worry about noisy traffic at night. Just a 5 minutes walk, and there you have it; the beautifull town of Lucca. It´s hardly a drawback that you´ll find yourself right at the heart of Toscana. We rented a car and indulged in the Tuscan cuisine, nature and its friendly people. The owner, Patrizia, was great, and made our stay there even better. We will definitely be back!
P.S If you ever go there, make sure to take the trip to Castiglione Garfagnana and look up the local butchershop at the entrance of the town.
