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

Wonderful week in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in Lucca at this charming flat in the heart of the walled city. Mrs. Sonia greeted us and gave a thorough orientation to the apartment and the city including dining recommendations. We especially enjoyed our walks along the beautiful wall followed by dinner at Giglio restaurant.

We booked this apartment because of the large outside courtyard. On the photo it looks amazing but in fact it gets little sun . Has a huge dead tree in the middle , most of the plants are dead , and no privacy whatsoever. If you like outdoor space in the summer don't choose this apartment.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry to hear from this review that your stay was not pleasant. I would have preferred you to call me during your stay so I could check the apartment and let it and give you a pleasant stay. our effort to give a pleasant stay to our guests is daily and we want to offer the best. If we understand in time what the problems are, we can also solve them. I can hardly understand what you mean fo Privacy in a garden in the most central square of the town.. There are obviously other buildings around and in this particular case the rest of the building is inhabited by the owner so there is actually much more privacy than many other places. I agree there were not flowers, that is because when you visited it was september and there cannot be as many flowers as in spring! However, if you would like to stay in Lucca, I would like to welcome you in this or in one of my apartments to show you my hospitality and offer you a discount on the price of the stay or some extra nights free of charge.

Excellent, excellent, excellent

  • 5 of 5

the property is just as shown in the pictures. Clean, furniture in good repair, with the added attractions of: comfortable beds, easy access, good garbage handling, close to EVERYTHING, and personable and helpful property manager (Mrs. Sonia) and owners (whom we were privileged to meet when we had a small problem with a broken part in one of the bathrooms.) Easy walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, shopping and of course, gelato. We especially liked Il Cuore restaurant right around the corner, and the Puccini concert in the church in the piazza. Not only would I recommend this apartment, I'll use it again myself when we visit Lucca again.

Great property and location but with problems

  • 4 of 5

Garden was wonderful as was apartment (except kitchen which was just OK). Had problems getting AC to work. Worked intermittently and usually not very well. Serious problem during a very hot spell in late June. Manager was very nice but forgetful. She rented the property to us for 2 weeks Sun to Sun. She also rented to someone else Sat to ? overlapping our stay by a day. We planned to leave a day early but later in the day and planned to use the garden and apartment until around 1300. But by 1000 a cleaning crew and yard crew were there to work. Also asked mgr to help arrange a taxi for us. She said she'd do it, then said she forgot, then did do it a second time. Wound up with 2 taxis. I also told her of our plans to leave late Sat, a day before our rental was finished, and she said no problem leave whenever you want. Owners nearby and very nice and helpful, but renting out the property for same time it was rented to us was inexcusable. I should get a refund for that day and will pursue with manager.

This accommodation was lovely with plenty of room to really relax. Our host, Sonia was very helpful showing us all we needed to know about the apartment then left us to enjoy our holiday. We had perfect weather whilst staying in Lucca therefore we ate all our at home meals outside in the courtyard. We also made good use of the two new bikes provided to ride around the city walls. The bedding, furniture etc where of top quality which added to the overall appeal of this apartment. It is in a central area of Lucca, and easy walking distance to all the shops, trains, and parking lot, yet peaceful and tranquil as it is located in a quiet little piazza. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this accommodation.

The apartment is located in the square 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 next door 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!
