La Guest House è una piccola oasi nel cuore di Lucca. Tra viette, negozi e palazzi del centro storico si apre un cortile a cui si affacciano le due camere, che godono della quiete e dei profumi di un vero e proprio giardino fiorito!

Da un piccolo cortile fiorito che si apre nel cuore del centro storico di Lucca, nasce il Cortile di Elisa. Un progetto, una passione, un desiderio che si concretizza nel dar vita a questa piccola Guest House gestita da Elena, la proprietaria di casa. Un giardino nascosto, nel cuore dei palazzi storici della sua città natale, offre un oasi di pace e serenità, all'insegna di un mix tra i sapori contemporanei e quelli della tradizione lucchese. Elena, giovane architetto e sommelier, ha curato la ristrutturazione della sua abitazione e della dependance che si apre sul cortile interno di proprietà esclusiva, dove ha allestito le due camere da destinare all'ospitalità. Il tutto gestito con il calore e la disponibilità che la caratterizza. A disposizione degli ospiti i consigli e i contatti personali utili per realizzare un soggiorno esclusivo e indimenticabile. A disposizione degli ospiti, oltre agli spazi arredati esterni , Elena mette a disposizione, su richiesta, anche la propria cucina professionale, dove è possibile organizzare corsi di cucina o cene con personal chef di mestiere...Vi aspettiamo per assaporare i colori e i profumi della nostra terra!

Il Cortile di Elisa si trova a pochi passi da Palazzo Orsetti, sede del Comune di Lucca e a circa 200metri dalle Basiliche di S.Michele e di S.Frediano, e a circa 150metri da Via Fillungo, cuore del centro storico di Lucca. Pur trovandosi in pieno centro, la via su cui si trova la Guest House è particolarmente tranquilla, priva di ogni frastuono che possa derivare da attività commerciali, poste nelle immediate vicinanze, ma discoste dell'abitazione, che gode quindi di una quiete e tranquillità amena.
