A pay parking area is located in a distance of 100 meters, just within the town wall.
The train station is in a distance of 500 meters; taxis bring you into the historical city centre and stop at the front door of the apartment.
Our apartment of 65 sqm was fully renovated in 2012. It is situated in the 1st floor and is reached by a stone stair. High value was set on the selection of materials and facilities to make you feel at home.
The ceiling is of traditional Tuscan wood truss, the floor is
composed of Italian cypress and further wooden details,
so that you will find a rustic ambiance.
Thanks to several high windows the rooms are very bright. The view on Via Cenami is lovely; the busy street is part of the pedestrian area, so you are free from any noise of engines.
From the vestibule you enter the living room, equipped with a sofa which can serve as a bed for two persons. Behind a fancy screen of boards there is a garderobe.
In the modern equipped eat-in kitchen there is also a TV set with a 32 inches-flat screen, another sofa (offering space to sleep for two persons) and a cast-iron tile stove.
The bedroom is provided with a double bed of solid wood and an antique commode.
You can reach the bathroom from the vestibule as well as from the bedroom. A glass wall borders the very spacious shower, the floor is covered by anti-slip stone flagging.
The double washbasin of concaved sanded boulder is unique. It is based on a massive cypress beam and has fittings of brass. Toilet and bidet are in a slightly separated part of the bathroom which disposes of a bottom hung window. A washing machine is positioned in the bathroom as well.
The apartment is equipped with central heating. In the summer season ceiling fans secure cooling.

Hosts were very friendly, communication and transaction problems.
The Gipsy Caravan and the environment is less cared for as specified in the pictures, but overall ok and clean. The crockery is a bit poor (for example, there were only plastic cups .... :(), there are no tablecloths on the table outside. The drains smell in the bathroom a bit, which can not be avoided completely by covering them with the available plugs.
The location is not correctly described as in the picture, just south of the city center of Lucca, but in the text 5km outside. Lucca is therefore accessible by public only by car. That's a bit confusing, I had to rely on the map.
The Gipsy caravan but is very cozy - especially during storms.
Fair price / performance.
For total unfortunately only 3/5 stars - there is with small improvements easily a better grade in it.
Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich, Kommunikation und Transaktion problemlos.
Der Gipsy Caravan und die Umgebung ist ein weniger gepflegt als auf den Bildern angegeben, insgesamt aber ok und sauber. Die Geschirrausstattung ist etwas dürftig (z.b. gab es nur Plastikbecher.... :( ), es gibt keine Tischdecken für den Tisch draußen. Die Abflüsse riechen im Bad ein wenig, was auch durch Abdecken mit den vorhanden Stöpseln nicht komplett zu vermeiden ist.
Die Lage ist nicht wie in dem Bild direkt südlich vom Stadtkern von Lucca, sondern wie im Text korrekt beschrieben 5km außerhalb. Lucca ist deswegen von hieraus nur mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Das ist etwas verwirrend, ich hatte mich auf die Karte verlassen.
Der Gipsy Caravan ist aber schon sehr gemütlich - besonders bei Gewitter.
Dafür insgesamt leider nur 3/5 Sternen - da ist mit kleinen Verbesserungen leicht eine bessere Note drin.
