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 villa in 2012

We had a fabulous week at the house with our family

  • 5 of 5

We numbered ten including five grandchildren, the house has plenty of space, the rooms are very comfortable and the living space is very practical especially as three of the children were under three years of age. The swimming pool area is lovely, but not heated, but then this is Italy and games room is great. Although the temperature was to cool in the evening to eat outside there is a great outside dinning area when warm enough. The roads to the property are not for the faint hearted with plenty of hairpin bends and local Italians drivers appear to have no sense of safety or road rules, so you need to take care as roads are narrow. There is a great restaurant within a mile of the house, Valintines, that provides great local cooking at half the price of restaurants in Lucca, so well worth a visit!

Villa Loppy is Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just outstanding, the view was unbelievable, and the company, was as always, superb... Lucca was fun, but I think we were so spoiled from our amazing week at your beautiful villa that it paled in comparison. We truly had the most amazing vacation. The villa is so special... thank you!

an experience to remember

  • 5 of 5

Sonia and Cristina did an outstanding job making our stay at the villa absolutely superb. Time and again, all week long, Isa organized activities == teaching us how to make pizza in the 500-year-old stone oven in the rear of the villa, taking us up to meet a blacksmith/artisan whose family forge had been operating for hundreds of years, and connecting us with a local cook who prepared a fantastic Italian meal. In the evenings, we enjoyed a variety of Italian wines looking out over the city lights of Lucca and Florence from the patio. The accommodations were first class -- and there was so much to see and do. Our group of five couples found this the best week in over 15 years of annual get togethers.

Paradise in Lucca-Loppeglia Village

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing birthday celebration in this idyllic setting a sumptuous food prepared by local chef Alice, beautiful music by guitarist named Lucarelli and lovely prosecco gifted by the helpful and friendly owner. We enjoyed Paolo Monti’s cooking class, a Puccini concert at San Giovanni Church and a wonderful tour of the Cinque Terre. Obviously not only is the villa a private paradise but the location is perfect. Our hosts were so helpful with informationfor all the activities. Thanks!

Completely satisfied

  • 5 of 5

This place is even more beautiful than the photos. The grounds are impeccable, and perfect for kids to safely run around on or just have a leisurely walk. The villa itself was exactly the Tuscan experience we were looking for - tranquil, has it's own impeccable grounds, beautiful views and near walking distance to a lovely little village with great restaurants. The kitchen is awesome and fully equipped to cook yourself a Tuscan meal to eat al fresco. The caretakers are awesome and so helpful. My entire family loved the place, and dream of coming back bringing more people to enjoy it. Highly highly recommend this place.
