Subject: Best area to stay in Lucca
Hi Barbara

Last year we (4 of us) stayed for a week 3km outside Lucca in a villa called Monte San Quirico. It was quiet and pleasant, marble floors, sunken bath, kitchen big enough for us to self cater some meals without problems. We really liked being able to sit quietly outside for a while in a garden. The trip into Lucca took only a few minutes, and there was plenty of parking outside the walls so the car was never a problem. We booked through Prices quoted are in $AUD. Wish I was going back there!

Good luck with your planning Sally (from Sydney)
