Apartment Arancio

Apartment Arancio


Apartment Arancio is located in via dell’ Arancio just beneath the historic Torre delle Ore (one of Lucca’s climbable mediaeval towers and key tourist attractions). It is in a quiet and elegant side street just off the bustling via Fillungo. Located on the first floor above ground (second floor American style) this apartment is tranquil and quiet, but close enough to be only seconds from via Fillungo, Lucca’s most famous shopping street.


The apartment is entered directly into the sitting room which is huge. There is ample space for a large and comfortable lounge suite comfortably positioned from a TV, DVD and everything to keep you entertained. This room also houses a large antique dining suite and the new, state of the art kitchen. The all white and stainless steel kitchen has the latest SMEG appliances and everything conceivable to create memorable gourmet meals. The blend of old and new continues as the room houses a stunning 19th century sideboard alongside halogen lighting and contemporary original artworks.


Two sets of French doors open onto the amazing terrace which is truly the feature of this apartment! This pair of doors enhances the flow between indoors and outdoors as well as flooding the apartment with natural light when closed. Enormous by any standards (30 square metres or 300 square feet), the terrace plays host to a large outdoor dining table and chairs and a range of terracotta pots brimming over with colourful flowers.


The outlook from the terrace is amazing as it overlooks a small piazza and a one story building on the long side allows extensive views onto the typical Tuscan townscape. It is hard to imagine that you would move far from the terrace for the duration of your stay.


The bedroom also overlooks the terrace. It is very spacious and features a 19th century Tuscan bedroom suite and the best of luxury superfine linens and thick, large towels.


Leading off the bedroom is a study / office which is fitted out with a beautiful antique desk as well as a single sofa bed. There is high speed internet connection as well as a phone point. It is the perfect spot to combine a bit of business with pleasure. There is a large triple window that looks out onto the terrace.


The apartment has 1.5 bathrooms both of which are brand new and only installed in January 2007. The main bathroom features a glass enclosed shower. There is also separate utility room which has the washing machine and ironing facilities.


The apartment is fully air conditioned and heated. It is spacious, light, bright and is a comfortable apartment for a couple and can easily accommodate a family. There is a sofa bed in the sitting room, so it is possible to have up to five adults share the apartment.
