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

Lovely Lucca, Lovely Home Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had visited other places in Tuscany, but not the charming town of Lucca. We read about it online and saw this apartment, and it's excellent reviews, and suddenly our trip plan gelled perfectly. We arrived by car, on a rainy day, and despite having a Euro GPS, we had trouble finding the parking garage. So it took a bit of time to get settled into our home for the next 9 nights. In hindsight, I needed to have done a bit more research on how the town is laid out, using google maps. But once we got checked in by Mrs. Sonia, any arrival stress from the parking issue gradually gave way to our discovery of all of the sensory delights that Lucca held in store for us! We unpacked and set out to eat the food of Lucca, which is not only exquisite Tuscan cuisine, but offered in many variations, by many styles of eateries, in seemingly boundless abundance. It didn't take long to learn the town. All the walking, whether making right or wrong turns, helped us burn the burgeoning caloric intake, as well as suddenly reveal thrilling sights, like Piazza San Michelle, with it's stunning facade and amazing statuary on top -- quite a fitting architectural emblem, and a 'crowing' of this jewel of a city. Our plan had been to make day trips from Lucca with the car. We made only one -- because, as we spent time wandering Lucca's enchanting lanes, I realized I had no desire to go anywhere else! All the food, the beautiful shops, bar/cafes, and friendly locals, became the entire focus of our visit. We tried two of the recommended "ristorantes" on Mrs. Sonia's list, along with other style eateries, and all will be memorable to us forever. There was a small "Osteria," where we had the most delicious lunch, in their still verdant garden, in perfectly sublime September weather. It was not only the pleasantness of the smooth wine --- we found the whole town to be intoxicating! One memory stands out: we were treated to samples of sweet cakes and breads from a bakery shop, just around the corner. The baker himself, kept giving us free bites. His passion for his culinary art, and for sharing it with us was fabulous fun!

The apartment is safe, comfortable, spacious, and quiet. The kitchen is well stocked; we left tea and jam for the next guest. Many thanks to Mrs. Sonia for helping us to create beautiful Tuscan experience and memories in her beautiful city of Lucca.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautifully appointed apartment for a week in February 2017. We were so impressed with the apartment and the attention to detail. The photos do NOT do this rental justice. It is in fact, so much nicer if you can believe that. Ms. Sonia was amazing. So prompt and efficient and knowledgeable. After giving us an orientation of the apartment and the amazing town of Lucca, Ms. Sonia left us to enjoy the apartment with complete privacy yet we knew she was just a phone call away. I could go on and on but let me just say that the location was perfect. Close to everything. A five to ten minute walk to the train station if you wished a day trip somewhere. Bike rentals seconds away. The kitchen fully equipped. The bathrooms fixtures were very high quality, never a problem with water pressure which often can be an issue there. Thank you sincerely Ms. Sonia for an unforgettable week at Casa Baino

Very Grateful Jack and Lynn, your guests in February 2017

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, spacious apartment in a wonderful quiet street in Lucca! We had a wonderful time exploring this gorgeous town and the apartment was in an amazing central location to all the piazzas and sights. Sonia provided plenty of information about the area/sights/restaurants/amenities so I would definitely recommend this spot to everyone.

excellent customer care

  • 5 of 5

I had a truly wonderful experience staying at the apt. Baino in Lucca. I was there for 29 days. Some of the time I had friends visiting and for about 8-9 days I was alone.I felt very secure when alone. Mrs Sonia was very accurate in her description of the apt. She was very helpful and always available.I booked the apt.on the internet from home and since I rented several times from Mrs Sonia I felt ver comfortable. It was with pleasure to discover how accurate were the pictures and description of the Baino Apartment. The restaurants were delightful and everything within walking distance and convenient. My niece's engagement was celebrated in a near-by restaurant. I cannot say enough how wonderful my stay was. The restoration of the building and apt.were done to perfection. I live in an historic area in NYC and recognize how well done the restoration was. My age is 57 years but the apt. was perfect for other ages since the apartment come with elevator. We walked everywhere in my neighborhood. A car is not necessary in Lucca either. Trains and buses are close by and convenient. I hope this is helpful.

TOP QUALITY APARTMENT AND HELPFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5

Dear Mrs Sonia,

I was hoping to run in to you while I walked the streets of Lucca, but you must have been very busy. I wanted to thank you very much for my experience in Lucca this year. You have always been very gracious and patient with me. I hope to return next year and bring my mama again. She still speaks fondly of our time last week when we were on Via Guinigi Apartment. I hope to be able to rent from you again if all goes well. Take care of yourself and thank you again.

Ciao. Ciao
