“very close to the old city. modern clean place”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

my husband and i stayed at one of the apartment for one night.
there is a full equipted kitchen with table for 4 persons. nice furnishings. all new and modern.
the owner of the place is very nice.
we hired two bicycle for half day in a frice of 5 euro each. i think its the best way to visit lucca.
we were in lucca in saturday- there was a market along the walls (inside the old city).
i found there a lots of thinks (table maps, underwear... in a very good price)
there were also food stands, where we bought food and made a picnic at the garden along the wall.

This place was absolutely terrific.

My husband and I stayed for one week in July, and it was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were helpful but not overbearing, the apartments were spacious and well-equipped, the place was clean and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the rooftop terrace and the swimming pool. It is very rare to find a place that is both walking distance to a city, and a swimming pool, but this is definitely it! We loved the town of Lucca and getting to know the surrounding area.

Good driving distance to Pisa, Sienna, Chianti region, Garfagnana region, and the Cinque Terre.

Would recommend this place to anyone!

Reviewed 13 July 2011

Very nice, comfortable, and modern - 10 apartments about a ten-minute walk to the walls of Lucca. Don't confuse this (as we did) with San Marco Hotel, which is across the street. The pool, while quite small, was cool on a hot day and cleaned each day. It would have been helpful to have a clue as to when each of the little shops across the street would be open, but we managed to find cheese, wine, bread, pastries and other good things to eat just a few feet away. For an "apartment," it's a bit lacking in some things - comfortable seating for more than one person, paper goods for when you are trying to cook and eat. But these are minor inconveniences. I would definitely stay there again. And if you're driving, free parking - leave the car there and walk into the walled part of the city.

Slow train from Pisa and a v quick taxi round the walls from the station, to these excellent apartments a few minutes walk from the city walls, even quicker when you hire a bike which is a lot of fun. Very high quality rooms, charming, helpful and friendly staff. Rooms are modern and spotlessly clean and have everything you would need for a self catering break with the bonus of a minibar. 2 balconies, one over looking the swimming pool and even a table tennis table on the roof. Had a great short break here, initially felt like we missed out not staying in an old building to match Lucca, but this only lasted an hour or so, when you are surrounded by the old buidling and cobbled streets each day, coming back to a bit of medrnity is a nice juxtoposition.
Slept the best I have done for a long time here, very peaceful and a great powerful shower to get things going in the morning, rooms with piddly weak showers are just so depressing, decent water pressure is often underated when staying away.
Enjoyed pottering and then cycling around the city a very chilled out few days, though eating out on a Sunday is a bit of a mission to fnid anything open in the evening.

San Marco Holidays is a great place to stay. The apartment was ideal - had everything we needed and is extremely clean and modern. The pool was a great bonus and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
