About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this apartment in 2012

THIRD TIME WITH SAME HOSTS

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Italy every summer and are based in Lucca with my family every Christmas. Given the numerous holiday apartments I have rented over the years, Sonia's service, attention to detail, consideration of her clients' individual needs, and the quality of her properties surpass any other agency and private owner I have used. Lucca is an enchanting family destination, and both the StGiovanni and Opera apartments that I used were just perfect for our mixed family group, with ample space in the beautiful living rooms and modern kitchens for time together, yet private quiet bedrooms and nice newly renovated bathroooms. The location is absolutely perfect, particularly if you are bringing a car, and both Benedetta and Sonia were the kindest and most helpful hosts I've met in all my years traveling to Italy. Thank you, as always, Sonia!

Sonia's help was invaluable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely central apartment CASA OPERA. It had everything we could possibly need and the 20C meets 15th C architecture was really interesting. Comnfortable beds, quiet surroundings, lovely view, enough space for everyone and spacious clean bathrooms. Modern appliances were not missing: combined washing machine and clothes dryer as well as a reliable wifi connection.

Sonia's help was invaluable, like others, we arrived late on Saturday & Sonia organised transport for us. We have been to Lucca on several previous occasions but Sonia's suggestions for visits led us outside the city walls and up to the river for the first time (Sonia provided 4 wonderful bikes for us). Sonia was especially kind to us before we left Lucca and we will return before too long. Thank you.

Location, Location and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We felt throughout our month stay in Casa Opera we had chosen RIGHT. First off working with Sonia before our arrival went smoothly and she was always responsive to my many emails with questions. Benedetta the owners daughter who lives with her parents two flights above was always " there" and responsive during our stay. The apartment was clean and the beds are the most comfortable we have had on any of our previous 7 trips to Italy. The. Bathrooms are of good size and modern and updated. The location is perfect for seeing all of Lucca easily or just watching from the windows the street activity outside. Having the bikes come with this apartment is HUGE and we used daily throughout our stay. We would definitely stay in Casa Opera again and recommend it to out friends.

The perfect accomodation solution for Lucca

  • 5 of 5

If you choose this apartment be aware: It can happen, that you spend more time relaxing on the sofa than on sightseeing... There are fantastic views at all day times, you see the local people coming and going, and your are sitting nearly over the cathedral. The only sounds you hear at night are the violins from the church during the evening concerts: amazing!.Everything was just perfect. We have never had such a relaxing city-apartment, perfectly equipped, everything is new and fresh and on a very high technical standard, including TV and dvd player with a lovely collection of classical music CDs, a first class Kitchen and two spacious bathrooms. Bikes are not missing for each of the 4 guests that can be accommodated. It's only a 5 minutes walk (along the walls and through wonderful squares, really lovely) to the Lucca central station and Bus Station and also to supermarkets and restaurants. Living here is very easy and we can fully recommend this location. The owners, gave us a very warm welcome and if we return to Lucca, this little oasis is our first choice. Just excellent !!!!

charming 5 stars apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us. It is just a 5 minute stroll from the railway station, and sits in a fabulous quiet location just within the city walls. The large windows looks out onto the st. Giovanni Church, and it was nice to watch people walking, jogging and cycling past during daylight hours. The inside of the apartment is truly beautiful with many of the original features proudly on display. The air-conditioning is efficient and welcome - certainly when it gets to about 40 degrees outside. The kitchen is equipped well enough - and I can confirm that the large fridge can accommodate plenty of Italy's fine wine and beer. The deposit, payment and key-pickup worked very well - it was nice to finally meet Mrs Sonia - a great host.

Wonderful Casa Opera Rental

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I organised a wonderful weekend in Lucca and we had such an amazing time and this was hugely down to the fantastic accommodation that we had. Believe me when I say the pictures do not do it justice, the amazing space and view this penthouse has to offer are outstanding. We were a large group yet did not feel like it with all the space to absorb us. Sonia and her family were friendly and helpful and the pre and post customer service was exceptional. I would highly recommend this rental and I for one will be looking for the next excuse to hire it! May I also recommend Butterfly Ristorante which is a short taxi ride away and we all enjoyed a beautiful evening meal!

Lucca, beautiful city, famous for its monumental 15th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria, the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany. Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town’s finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes’ walk from the apartment. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes’ walk. In Lucca’s winding streets, the pedestrian comes before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city.
