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 2015

I really enjoyed staying in this apartment. Everything was at hand, Mrs Sonia thought of everything to tell us about apartment and the area. The apartment was very clean and well appointed with a great bathroom and kitchen. Loved the living room both for breakfast and at the end of the day to enjoy a glass of wine! Fantastic in all respects, and would stay there again in a moment!!
We have been in this marvellous luxury apartment for and we have no doubt about it was a great idea. Very clean, with pretty rooms, large bathrooms and a complete kitchen we were here for 10 days like if we where at our own home. The private parking of the apartment is also an highlight and very convenient and helped us saving money.
The apartment is 100 meters from the main monuments, so, its very near from Via Fillungo (1 minute walking), Duomo (3 minutes on foot) and Torre Guinigi (2 minutes on foot). There is a Sidis Supermarket previously to Carmine Square –right behind the building- with a very good quality products and a complete wine selection. It opens daily from 9 to 7 so, its perfect to adquire food, cheese, saleme and a good bottle of wine.
Sonia, the girl that recives us, was very kind and simpatic, she helped us to find a good place to take dinner. She was always available over the phone for our needs. She was very sweet and attentive to us.
She recommend (and we can assure it was a good choice) the near restaurant "Canuleia", for take a good "Bistecca" and the excellent “Tordelli” and to prove ice creams in "Veneta", in Via Vittorio Veneto.
We absolutely recommend this apartment to everyone who wants to visit Lucca. We felt like at home. Thank you!

My wife and I rented this apartment on our trip to Tuscany in mid October. The booking process was very easy and Mrs. Sonia was a real joy to work with. The apartment is very modern and very well equipped. The location is on a quiet street near the Lucca wall. It was a short walk to any of the various attractions in Lucca. There is a nice patio and place to park a car. We would definitely rent this apartment again. Lucca is such a great city and so close to all of the other attractions found in Tuscany. Thanks for a great time in Lucca Sonia!
We had a fantastic stay here in October 2015 for 2 weeks, the apartment is very central, easy walking distance to just about all of the major sites, shops and some great restaurants. We loved the location, the equipment provided and the apartment itself. The rooms were comfortable and the apartment beautiful! We also had a great meal at the restaurant down the street - one of our best in Italy! Also, dealing with Sonia's company was a pleasure: she provided a prompt, reliable and warm customer service. And we found the apartment spacious safe and secure. Highly recommended.
My husband and I rented this flat during our recent travel around Tuscany and we loved it. This was our second visit to Lucca and again we rented from Mrs Sonia, a lady on a bicycle (they all ride bikes in Lucca) who let us in and made sure we knew how everything worked. Traveling to and from the major sights was easy, it just required no longer than 5 miutes of walking to get to the bus stop, train station and the great monuments. The flat is exactly as you see on the pictures, only it's more charming in reality. Sonia is a wonderful resource and is a fountain of information and answered all of our questions proir to arrival. She even left a bottle of wine and a snack for us. The flat is extremely clean and well appointed with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. All cooking utensils supplied, dishwasher, washing machine, 2 bikes, luxury shower and plenty of hot water, oh and super fast broadband included, that was a great bonus! The small grocery around the corner was convenient and we found an excellent restaurant 'Gli Orti' nearby. The apartment faces an antique 1300s villa with garden which Sonia told us belonged to the lord of Lucca (today is a wonderful museum) while the Lucca bespoken museum of contemporary art is located over the corner and has a modern famous restaurant on the ground floor. Worth the trip! And the flat was a welcoming, comfortable oasis for us after long days of sightseeing. The owner even provides a wealth of well organized tourist information in the flat, which was very helpful to us.
Now we understand why everyone knows Sonia as she have the best properties in town.
We booked for 7 days ended up staying for 12--that says it all. Perfect location for seeing this area of Tuscany. We did day trips to Pisa, Florence, Siena,Cinque Terra,San Gimignano (by train, bus and organised tours). It's an easy walk to the train station. Just walking the wall in Lucca is a great experience. Waking up to gorgeous music from the music conservatory next door is a special treat in itself. The apartment is just beautiful--high ceilings, big bathroom with a large walk-in shower, large bedroom with king-size bed and beautiful linens. Lots of restaurants near by. Nothing is very far away within the walled city. Our host Sonya was very welcoming and always accessible. The previous week we had stayed in another rental in the south of France that we found on this website. It was very disappointing, but this appartment allowed us to put our bad experience behind us. If you don't like this place you should not be travelling.
