Our family of 6 enjoyed 4 nights at apartment Emma. We were met by Renata and her husband. They are wonderful hosts and really care about their property. Renata left us with a scrumptious home made cake and delicious wine made from her family estate winery. What a treat! The apartment itself is more spacious than the pictures show. It is like having 3 bedrooms with the loft area. Everything is clean, updated and in great shape. The apartment is air conditioned, quiet, and safe. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. A supermarket with gluten free items was a 10 minute walk away and parking was just up the street at €5 per day. Lucca’s walled city is right across the street. It is a beautiful city to walk any time but we enjoyed it at night time. Our apartment was our base for seeing Portofino (highly recommended) where we snorkeled, the Cinque Terre, and Baratti bay where we snorkeled and viewed the Etruscan ruins. There are many sandy beaches close by. At the end of our stay, Renata met us once again. She is is such a gracious and kind person. We loved our stay here!
