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 2011

Lucca 2018

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time staying at this 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment.

It looked just as nice as the photos! The kitchen appliances were modern but took some patience to operate, but everything else worked great - especially the air conditioning - which was needed in late June! Mrs. Sonia was helpful and the booklet gave us a lot of information for touring around Lucca. We went to a Villa owned by a Prince in that booklet - and the tour of that villa and the lunch place on the side of a mountain nearby that the villa folks recommended were the highlight of our trip!

Our only surprise was the Lucca rock music festival - which was too loud and was 3 nights during our stay...but that was unavoidable...

Overall we loved the place - and thought the location was perfect for a week long stay in Lucca! We would highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you Allen for taking pr3ecious time off to share your invaluable feedback with us. Yes, in July it takes place the Lucca Summer Festival featuring great celebrities such as Elthon John, Mark Knopfler, The Rolling Stones and Lenny Kravitz.. that is probably why they make some noise, bu that is just a couple of evenings each week. I hope to be able to meet you again soon! Sonia

Live like a local at a great price

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely LOVED this little apartment and its location in the gorgeous Lucca. It has real charm and personality and the details - beamed ceilings, cool art, beautiful views and absolutely worth it. Also, the location is excellent - within the walls but on its own less populated and charming piazza. For the price it was a great value in the things that matter. Sonia was very helpful and certainly all the transactions went completely smoothly. I did absolutely feel at home and very local. I will be back and rent again from Mrs Sonia.

just like the pictures: perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week with our 2 older children. The apartment is large and comfortable and well located in Lucca. The bikes provided were great and we enjoyed many rides around Lucca and its walls. The kitchen condiments provided were a pleasant bonus and we enjoyed our daily trips to the market or supermarket and of course the pasticceria for our morning cornettis. The bar in our piazza also had great coffee!

Would thoroughly recommend for family or group of friends. Maureen&Jack

I would make this visit again

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely fantastic - it is huge. The windows overlooks a quiet square, perfect for watching the world go by. The apartment location is excellent: inside the walls and in a short walk to everything. Above all, the owners were so very helpful in all aspects of our stay. They went out of their way to provide us with every assistance. The practical information on getting out and about in Lucca provided by the owners was very welcome. We rented 2 apartments from Sonia in the same building as there were 4 couple in our party and both apartments were spotlessy clean and comfortable. Would stay there again. Thanks Sonia!

The apartment is located in the aquare where it takes place the antique market and also where it is located the famous church where every afternoon it takes place the Puccini arias concert.

The apartment is also located nextdoor to the theatre 'teatro del giglio' and the square piazza napoleone where the summer festival takes place. The apartment is located very close to the train station of lucca, in less than 5 mins walking.

In 1 mins walking from the apartment there is a bike rental shop, bakeries, groceries and so on.

The apartments are located in a very quiet square where there are no clubs and shops, so it makes it very very quiet.

The church bells do not work, so it is quiet!
