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 2010

Luccesse treasure

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in such an ideal location we couldn't believe how fortunate we were to rent it. It is literally in the center of Lucca. The pictures on the site are very accurate. We really enjoyed having a garden space inside the city walls. The property is close to a music academy and the music from the students can be heard during the day. We really enjoyed that feature. We had some difficulty with some of appliances since we were unfamiliar with how they operate. There was some minor construction on the main entrance while we were there but it in no way interfered with our stay. Shopping at the local shops really gave us a taste of Italian lifestyle. We'd do it again and hopefully we will. Loved this place!

Peaceful apartment, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

The property was great, the back garden was a peaceful area to relax while listening to the classical singing and music from the local music school echoing around the buildings. The house is centrally located and has everything you need.

We highly recommend renting through Mrs Sonia

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend renting through Mrs Sonia for your stay in Lucca. We were picked up at the airport, driven directly to our apartment. Sonia helped us with tips for trips, and was very helpful in any situation.

We loved the Tuscan-feel of the apartment, and the garden was wonderful for sunbathing (the weather was nice in February) and football with the kids. We were two adults and two kids, and found the apartment to be spacious enough for the four of us. The apartment is well equipped for every need, and it is also beutifully restored and decorated.

The location of the apartment is perfect! Just down the streets, 50 m, is a bakery where you can buy fresh bread and foccaccia for breakfast. The supermarket is about 200 m away, and the shopping area just a little bit further. The bedrooms are facing a quiet backyard and the garden, so we had no trouble sleeping at night.

We bought two child-seats for the bikes, and biked all around Lucca, as everyone else.

Harp, Cello and Violin Music!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed throughout Tuscany and found Lucca to be our favorite location. This apartment, Boccherini Casa, was appointed perfectly. Right down to the color of trash bags needed. The outdoor area was great. One early evening, we listened to harp music from the music institute. Many afternoons we had cello, violen music. Having a washer was very helpful. There is a great lending English book section. We left books and took a few. This was greatly appreciated. Since we were on a one month driving trip of northern Italy, parking our car in the free lot outside the walls and being picked up was perfect and timely. The driver was the nicest man we met in Italy. Don't run away from Lucca. Enjoy the city, find your perfect pasta, meat, cheese, pastry shops. Gather your food and come "home" to make your perfect meal/evening. This was a highlight of our trip. If/when we go back to Italy, we will certainly entertain Lucca and this rental agency.

Brilliant management

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property and what an entrance hall! It was great to be in the heart of the city with everything on our doorstep and a garden in which to chill with a good book and a glass of wine and enjoy the music from the music school. It all made for a very enjoyable and relaxing week. Sonia looked after all the arrangements brilliantly as ever and we look forward to bringing the family with us next year.
