"We had a wonderful time on our trip to Lucca, and LOVED staying at Carlino Michele. It was definitely a home away from home. The apartment was the perfect size for our group of 4 adults and 2 children. We loved riding the bikes provided for us around Lucca. Our vacation was truly magical. We'd go back in a second.

Our most current visit to Lucca is not our first; nor is our stay at one of Charles Duggan's apartments on via del Toro. Returning to Lucca is like going back to the old house in the "old neighborhood." The Carlino Michele apartment feels like home. It has absolutely everything we are used to and need to feel at ease following our daily excursions within the walls as well as our day trips to the surrounding countryside. As Charles' on-site representative, Andrea was able to assist us with any special requests, both prior to our arrival and after. He always has a smile on his face. The whole experience, from initiating the rental process to completing the transaction was, as usual, very easy and without any problems. Charles was also very accommodating with helping us when we learned we would be arriving a day earlier than originally planned.
I know we will be returning to Lucca. My first priority will be to contact Charles and book one of the apartments on via del Toro.

We just returned from 3 weeks in Italy with our 3 children (ages 7, 9 and 10). A definite highlight of the trip was our stay in Lucca, especially the comfort and convenience of Carlino Michele. In addition to being spacious and immaculate, Charles has outfitted the apartment with comfort and luxuries not always found in Europe, like a gigantic
king-sized bed and a dryer! Charles was a pleasure to deal with, and we felt relaxed and
recharged by the time we left Lucca. I highly recommend Lucca and Carlino Michele. Thank you, Charles! Lisa McFall, Pleasanton, Ca 07/12/10

We were two families staying here in July and we loved the place. Perfect location within the walls of Lucca, with a 2 minute walk to the San Michele Cathedral. The apartment was well kept, clean and for a rental it was very well equipped. Could not have asked for more, and I will definitely recommend it to anyone going to Lucca.
Left on 05/14/2011 for a stay in April 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 14, 2011Stayed Apr 2011
Great apartment! We has 6 adults in our party and none of us wanted to leave after our two weeks had gone by.
We cooked in several times and found nothing wanting in the kitchen. Beds were great, even the bunk beds.
The location is great and only a 100 second walk from Zeros, a pub we frequented often. Lucca is a gem to explore on foot with something interesting around each corner. Puccini concert each night year round is a 5 ninute walk away. Lucca made an ideal base for day trips by rail to Pisa, Florence and the coast. We did not have a car nor did we need one.
This is 5 stars ++
