Medieval Tower House alongside the Cathedral San Martino Bell Tower built 1204.

Historic holiday home in Lucca
Rare property in a unique location, right next to the bell tower of the Cathedral in the historic center, inside the walls.
Wonderful view of the Cathedral of San Martino and of the walls from all floors.
Very bright house, in a truly medieval atmosphere, equipped with all modern comforts like fast wi-fi no limits, air conditioning, heating, safe in every bedroom, and private parking space just in front of it.
The three bedrooms are spacious and each furnished in a different way, but still medieval with antique wardrobe, safe and very comfortable bed medieval style, with new mattress.
Every bedroom has its bathroom on the floor, all in original materials and painting, but with modern accessories, like hydromassage.
Every bedroom has a large living area too, with television, armchairs, sofa and antique table just in front of the panoramic windows.
On the ground floor very large original arch access, that in medieval time gave access to the store located inside. Now the arch leads to the living and dining room and to the kitchen fully equipped.
On the wall of the stairs' landing dominates an antique wooden statue of Pope Alessandro II, already Bishop of Lucca since 1057, who allowed the construction of the Cathedral.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and a safe. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens or kitchenettes offer fridges, separate dining areas, kitchenware and utensils and dishwashers.

Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

Great location with plenty of space
Loved the rustic style and the convienent location. Especially if you drive a small car (i.e. Audi A3) to Lucca as parking is at the property’s front door. Overall fun location!

5/5 Excellent

Incredible 7 Star Stay in Lucca
As wonderful as the pictures make this property look online, it is even more spectacular in person. I would give this place 7 stars if I could. Every meticulous detail has been considered to maximize the enjoyment of the property - amazing mattresses, air conditioning in all the rooms, even the quality of the bath towels (softest ever!). You can tell a lot of thought and love was put into the renovation of this tower to turn it into THE "wow" place to stay in Lucca, a place that seamlessly blends the old (as in 500+ years old) with the new. Roberto the owner was incredibly responsive to us leading up to our stay with all my questions, and his assistant Giulia warmly helped us from the moment we arrived until we left with anything we needed. My kids gave her a hug before we left! My wife and I stayed with our 10 year old, 8 year old, and 3 year old, and staying here was one of their favorite memories from our trip through Italy. All the best to Roberto and Giulia - thank you for such a wonderful memory in Lucca!

5/5 Excellent

amazing historic tower house
I will surely be back to Lucca for staying in this house. Linen of top quality, new beds, 3 bathrooms, one per floor, with all you need. medieval but fully modern, close to all city attractions, stores and restaurants. You cannot miss to visit the Cathedral, just around the corner!

5/5 Excellent

Tower House - Wonderful location
