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

Beautiful Property with a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Sonia was a joy to work with, and was very accommodating. The property was exactly as depicted in photos and descriptions were extremely accurate. The kitchen was large and easily accommodated six for dinner, and the additional bathroom was convenient for guests. The location was very near the main shopping street "Via Fillungo" and quite near many fine restaurants and the grocery store. We would recommend this property and would definitely book it again on any future trips to Lucca.

Wonderful apartment for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful month staying in this well appointed apartment in Lucca. The location was great. It felt like our home away from home. We have been to Lucca every two years for the past 10 years and always stay in one of Sonia's apartments. We can always be assured of great accommodation when booking with her. My husband was in a wheelchair so it had perfect access for him. Only small steps which were easy to manage. We love Lucca and this trip was very special for us as a family because of my husbands illness. Thank you once again Sonia.

Lucca apartment

  • 4 of 5

A thoroughly enjoyable 6-night stay. Apartment had every amenity we needed. Moreover, it was conveniently located and within easy walking distance of great restaurants and the porta we used to meet shuttles and buses for day trips. And the property manager, Mrs. Sonia, was easy to work with. Two Thumbs, as Siskell and Ebert used to say.

Time Travel Back in History

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for a more beautiful apartment. The interior has been recently renovated. The ceilings are original and so beautiful. It is a very spacious with ample room for four people. It has three bathrooms, one with a bathtub. You are close to everything. We chose to park outside the wall, an easy walk of about eight minutes. Cost was about six euros per day. Ms. Sonia delivered! She met us at the apartment and had a three ring binder with all the answers to your questions. It included how to operate the washer/dryer, where to eat, what to do, etc. She was always reachable by phone if needed. This place was the highlight of our accomodations during our 18 days in France and Italy.

Fantastic Lucca Apartment Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in Lucca if you are there for a week or more (and it is certainly a city worth spending time in). being on the ground floor it was perfect for my 87 years old mum. The flat itself has everything you could want, the bathrooms have good showers and a bathtub. It also has a washing machine and clothes dryer. The sitting room is very comfortable, with quality couches, and those amazing interiors. There is useful reading material in English about Lucca. And importantly, the beds, large and in separate bedrooms with good cupboard space is also very comfortable. The highlight for us was the space. There is a high quality grocery/delicatessen/wine shop practically next door (to the right from the front door) selling the best of Tuscan produce, and a very large supermarket tucked away downstairs in an arcade to the left just a minute's walk away. We tried a variety of local restaurants, and preferred the unpretentious osteria which offer limited menus of good home style Tuscan cooking and decent house wine for very reasonable prices. Lucca is a small city, and all its major attractions are within an easy stroll of the apartment. It also makes a good base to explore the Tuscan countryside or for a day trip to Florence. Not having a car we booked a day trip with local guide, Mrs Isa, to visit some wineries on the hills to try the famous Lucca wines. This was a great day out with a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. Sonia was a very gentle and honest host. We highly recommend a stay in this Lucca flat

Fantastic apartment in the centre of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellent.. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to cook meals for our family and baby grandson who had just commenced solids. The huge living area was lovely to sit on and relax whilst drinking coffee or a wine. We had almost every meal in the apartment. It was also great for the children to play on. The antique palace had a courtyard which was also good to allow our children to play. The apartment was close to shops and the free parking was right behind the apartment. It also has bikes, very rare! It was close to the train which allowed us to go into Rome and sight-see. There are plenty of resturants around for dining and even exciting groceries. Overall the apartment was neat , clean and well presented. Sonia was a fantastic host and made extra efforts to accommodate my family. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Lucca and will do it again next time we travel to Italy (2 years). Thank you!
