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

a 5 stars review

  • 5 of 5

Hi Sonia we certainly want everyone to know about your wonderful apartment in beautiful Lucca! We had such a great time. From the beginning, when you met us and explained everything, until the end when you kindly arranged for our taxi to the airport, our stay was perfect. The apartment is lovely - well furnished, light and airy, with views of Lucca's rooftops from every window. We had everything we needed, including an elevator, which was so welcome after hours of walking! The location of the apartment is ideal- close to restaurants, groceries and shopping ( and the fine Lucca Italian School), yet there was no noise. We especially loved Nonna Clara, the little trattoria nearby, where the food was delicious and the owner and staff were so friendly. Another thing we loved was our cooking class with Giuseppe. It was one of the highlights of our stay and we thank you for the recommendation. Lucca is such a magical place - seemingly spared from modernization and development. Other than a few very hot days, we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful week. 5 stars! Best regards, Helen and Abby

10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I have just spent 11 nights in Casa Baino, a top floor apartment in an old, delightful building with fabulous views and full of charm. This property is well maintained and well managed by Sonia who was helpful and easy to deal with. She met us at the property with the keys and we never needed to contact her again. Everything worked well and it was very clean and comfortable. For an old property it is amazingly light, airy, quiet, spacious and was perfect for our holiday in Tuscany. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen easy to use and well stocked and home cooked meals looking out at the hills beyond after a busy day walking and sightseeing were just what we needed. We enjoy walking and travelled about each day using public transport. The train station is 10 mins. away, the bus station 15 mins., the supermarket 2 mins., the walls 5 mins. and the Piazza Anfiteatro is 3 mins. away. So well situated. Pisa, Viareggio, Florence, Pietrasanta and the villages of Barga, Bagni di Lucca, Montecarlo and Montecatini, all within easy reach but every day we were happy to return to lovely Lucca and Casa Baino for a meal in or a meal out and a good night's sleep. A perfect holiday.

This apartment is all about the view and the location. Everyday, it was a privilege to wake up and go to sleep seeing the view of the antique town. EVERYTHING is at your doorstep. Sonia, who owns the apartment is a wonderful lady and unbelievably helpful. She met us at the apartment, meeting went smoothly and everything was taken care of very efficiently. The apartment is furnished very well. It is roomy and comfortable with tons of charm. The kitchen is large and very well equipped with anything you could need and having the separate dining area is a pleasure. The TV works great, especially after Sonia showed us how to get channels in English. The wi-fi internet connection was excellent. For an extended stay this place is wonderful (we were there for 3 weeks). We felt like real "natives" and it was great to be able to have lunch or dinner at home , instead of going out for every meal. Dear Sonia, as you can tell, we loved our stay at your Baino apartment. Thank you!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in Lucca if you are there for five days or more (and it is certainly a city worth spending time in). It is perfect for those with mobility issues because there is an elevator to reach the apartment door. The flat itself has everything you could want - a fully equipped kitchen including all the basic provisions to make a meal, such as olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The bathroom is new and recently done as Sonia told us and has a an excellent shower and is well lit. The living room is very comfortable, with quality couches. There is useful reading material in English about Lucca. And importantly, the bed, in a separate bedroom with good cupboard space is also very comfortable. The highlight for us was the view and the interiors - relaxing for having lunch or a glass of wine at the table, and being able to gaze around at Lucca's architectural wonders. There is a high quality grocery/delicatessen/wine shop practically next door (to the right from the front door) selling the best of Tuscan produce, and a very large supermarket tucked away downstairs in an arcade to the left just a minute's walk away. We tried a variety of local restaurants. We had several outstanding culinary experiences, and preferred the unpretentious osteria which offer limited menus of good home style Tuscan cooking and decent house wine for very reasonable prices. Lucca is a small city, and all its major attractions are within an easy stroll of the apartment. It also makes a good base to explore the Tuscan countryside or for a day trip to Florence. Not having a car we booked a day trip with local guide, to visit some wineries to try the famous red wines of Montecarlo. This was a great day out with a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend a stay in this Tuscan flat. Jane & Mat NY USA

Bellissima Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed in this wonderful apartment for a week in January 2015. It is exactly as described with the most spectacular views of both Lucca and beyond. It is large, warm, comfortable and very tastefully decorated and given the age of the palazzo is very modern. The inclusion of faultless and unrestricted wireless internet is a must. Sonia was an absolute pleasure to deal with - prompt with communication both prior to and during our stay. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and a visit to the wonderful town of Lucca - this was our second visit and won't be our last.

Lucca Apartment a glorious week in October

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for one glorious week in October 2014. The apartment was more than we hoped for. It's located in a residantial part of the town in the proximity of busy streets and markets but far away from the noise. The apartment is located in a quiet street and Lucca is a charming town that we fell in love with. The apartment was very clean and beautifully maintained. Even better than the pictures! Sonia was wonderful. She was very helpful especially when my friend's mother was hospitalized and Sonia was notified to tell my friend. She had much compassion and empathy. We will never forget our magical stay in Lucca.
