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

PERFECT EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

We were a group of 5 (4 adults and 1 child). The listing was accurate. The property was extremely clean and very well-maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked and the laundry facilities very helpful. The location (inside the walls) was optimum! We loved walking to all the different things to do in Lucca!

Mrs. Sonia was wonderful to work with. She was professional and very helpful in explaining the parking options and the different facets to the apartment. I would rent from her again!

INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5

We came to Lucca on our Italy trip and this was the perfect place to stay. It was on the periphery of the city, but in the walls of Lucca everything is only a quick 5 minute walk. The wifi worked very well, the beds were very comfortable, it was incredibly clean, the terrace was amazing, there is a parking lot very close to this location, and Sonia was a delight to work with. This apartment was such a joy to live in for a couple of days!! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment, centrally located just off CORSO GARIBALDI with restaurants, bistros and shops close by. The apartment is in an old building dating from the 13th/14th century in a very quiet location. The apartment itself is elegant and roomy; very bright despite we were there in December, it has a large sitting room, spacious and amazing bedrooms and windows overlooking the sun and the gorgeous square with its antique Palazzos and Church. The original open arches have been left on the roof. The kitchen is very nice and very well equipped and there is an enormous amount of storage space.

Sonia and her sister are highly professional and offers a splendid service, they arranged a car to collect us from the airport and was there to meet us at the apartment even though it was after 8.00pm when we arrived. They gave us helpful advice about local place to eat and visit.

We cannot praise both the apartment and Sonia highly enough. Lucca is a wonderful city and we will certainly be going back and staying at the Casa Theresa Apartment!

Visitors from Norway

  • 5 of 5

My wife, I and our friends stayed here for 2 weeks from 13th till 27th of August 2013. We loved the place very much. First evening when we arrived Sonia took us to the nearest supermarket Coop to buy the necessary things and food. We would like to thank Sonia for that as it was very pleased and we didn't know where to buy food for first dinner.

Apartment is spacious and sunny. Terrace is wonderful to take breakfast or to drink some wine in the evening. There was also very helpful laundry room and a very efficient wi-fi connection for free for our stay. and last but ot least we'd loved the service provided by the owner Mrs Sonia. Thus she contributed to our very pleasant stay in Lucca. I would like to suggest the Torre Guinigi to visit and the Anfiteatro Square especially at night. Thanks Mrs Sonia

Not what we hoped

  • 2 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment that has been very thoughtfully decorated. It is a good location. However in the pictures it looked like a very bright and light place. It is not. It is dark and the back bedroom is like a cave. It was cloudy much of the time we visited, but even when the sun came out, the apartment was very dark. The pictures appear to have been taken without the dark shutters on the windows. Also the pictures of the street are not the street where the apartment is located.

We had to pay extra for heat. When we arrived at the place it was very cold and it took several hours for it to heat up. For an expensive place like this and because we were paying extra for heat, the owner should have turned the heat on several hours before our arrival.

As she was leaving the owner could only find one key. She shrugged her shoulders, said "oh well" and left. She did not ask us if we needed more keys or offer to get us another one later.

In the ad for this property it says "A separate laundry rooms is provided with washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and board". I have traveled in Europe before and know that a clothes dryer is rare but we thought since we were paying so much a night, that must be one of the extras. This is one of the reasons we chose this place. We would be at the end of our trip and be in need of doing laundry. There is no separate laundry room and no clothes dryer. The washing machine was is the bathroom and the clothes dryer was a rack on the terrace. There were no instructions for the washer and we had many problems trying to figure it out. I had to take my clothes to a laundry mat to dry them.

There was a two page rule list of what to do with the garbage - how to recycle and when to take it out and where to put it. The last thing we needed on the day we left was to worry about what to do with the garbage. Certainly, again for this price, the person who cleans the apartment could take care of the garbage after our departure.

So, lots of disappointment. I have rented apartments on a different site and had much better experiences. I would not recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Being quite surprised about this review I initially thought that you probably wrote a review to the wrong apartment. As could be noticed the apartment faces south (lot of light) and the building that we entirely own has no buildings close by and it is free on the 4 sided (not attached to other buildings) making the apartment very very bright. The big windows are all over the apartment, in every room, so I do not understand the second bedroom described as a 'cave' (it's actually a master bedrooms as the main bedroom and not a second crummy bedroom). The heating was turned on the morning of your arrival, so 8 hours prior your arrival (more or less) and the temperature was actually ok. The extra charge for heating was clearly stated both on the website, on the availability connfirmation and then on the rental agreement. I am also surprised about the fact that if you did not like the apartment, why you did not told me when you arrived or even the day after? So I am thinking about this: why did you decide to stay there and then write a bad review? I take care of my customers and I ask you the following question: would it be wise for me to treat my guests bad and obtain a bad review? Certainly not. So I am very very worried about how true and honest is this review.

great value

  • 5 of 5

So we spent a week in this lovely apartment and we were very pleased! Great location. A lovely bakery directly across the street with the freshest breads you've ever tasted. An open air market only 1/2 block away and tons of smaller markets close by means you can get all your food quickly and easily. Also the Antifeatro is a short walk away with numerous cafes and restaurants. The apartment itself is very clean and everything works quite well. The whole apartment including the bathrooms are new, the Air Condition keeps the place cool when the temperatures get warm. The grand terrace at the back is a lovely way to start the day...I took my breakfast there almost everyday. The building is nice and quiet...we never heard anyone at all. We would recommend this apartment for sure...in fact I wish I could go back there now!

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.
