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

average rating of 4.8 based on 20 reviews

We had a fantastic week, highly recommended.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property. It was very cosy and plenty of room for the 7 of us and baby Charlie.

We were badly delayed flying into Pisa but were met and settled in despite being 3 hours late, arriving around 10pm!

We woke to a glorious sunny day with views typical of a Tuscan landscape.

Pool was amazing, shame it was not heated so didn’t get used by all or as much as we would have liked.

The only reason for giving 4 stars not 5 was, I felt, having to pay extras which weren’t made clear on initial booking.

500 Euro deposit which was returned on leaving. fine.

Paid 80 euros for gas used for central heatin and cooking. This was October half term so chilly evenings. (Extra for air con’ in summer I believe).

150 euros for final cleaning paid (although we left it as clean as when we arrived).

37 euros, a 2.5% credit card booking fee.

All this didn’t affect our great holiday and we had a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you David for your kind review! All the extra charges like heating, final cleaning and 37 euros processing fee were both specified in the rental agreement and on the notes to the rental rates on the webpage, so no suprises. We want the communication to be clear and smooth, that is why everything is stated in advance.

Fabulous family Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa exactly as we expected with plenty of space for our large family. Kitchen was excellent and pool area was a lovely place to spend time with the kids. Accessible location which was a great base to explore the Lucca region and beyond. Cristina made the check in process very easy and explained everything well. She also prepared us a couple of amazing dinners!! We would definitely recommend this Villa and look forward to returning one day.

rent from Mrs Sonia for the best properties!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated out 30th anniversary (Oct. 15) with family & friends at Villa Querciabella. Upon arrival, Oct. 13) we were greeted w/drinks, appetizers and a wonderful tuscan dinner. The villa is something out of a story book---attention to detail in every room! Mrs Sonia surprised us w/homemade pastries, cakes and ice cream! Of course, there was plenty of wine! While we were there, we had a pizza party and a chef came in to teach us how to cook a tuscan meal! Never had so much fun in my life---we laughed and sang while preparing our meals! On our last day, Mrs Sonia and family came with a home made cake for us! The next morning we left very early and Mrs Sonia was there to send us off! Of course, we all had tears in our eyes when saying good-by! Such a beautiful family and memories we'll never forget! This experience will be remembered the rest of our lives! This was our second time renting from Sonia and it won’t be the last. Maureen

Lovely home but needed refurbishment

  • 3 of 5

Lovely location. Property was in a very quiet village. We thought that the kitchen & bathrooms were dated & needed upgrading. The particulars when we booked said there was a microwave & toaster but neither were in the kitchen during our stay. The cabinets around the cooker & dishwasher kept falling off. The towels & bed linen needed renewing as very tired & worn. The pool area however was delightful definitely the best part of our stay.

charming homey retreat with fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute spent there. The villa is setted amongst the olive groves and lot of greenery. The little village with restaurants (one on a bridge!) and the grocery of mr Alesandro was great. We found fresh local cheeses, ham and fuit there. Amazing.

Our host was fabulous and the villa was very charming. The pool was perfect. We had an unforgettable 2 weeks. THANKS
