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

Great location, nicely furnished and the price is right.
Lucca is a walking experience. We found the location of our apartment to be perfect for our daily forays into the the lovely winding streets of the town. Anything you might want, breakfast, cappuccino, wine or a good meal was just a few steps from the front door. The apartment itself is nicely furnished and being able to open the windows for lovely fresh air was a bonus. Be sure to bring a variety of electrical current converters, the ones in the apartment are two prong.
The top floor location makes for some great local views and the building itself is quiet at all times of the day. If we return to Lucca we'll look forward to returning to this location.
Thank you Mike! It was a pleasure to host you into my apartment! See you soon again in Lucca! Mrs Sonia
Lovely Lucca, Lovely Home Away!
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.
Lisa, it was lovely to read your kind review after we you left Lucca. You cannot imagine how beautiful it was to meet you and host you. All my team at Lucca Apartments And Villas.co.uk loved you and hope to see you again in the next future! Fondly, Mrs Sonia
Beautiful,everything you need. Clean and tastefully decorated.
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
My goal is to provide the best experience to my guests and your words of appreciation are so much appreciated! Thanks for choosing one of my properties! Sonia
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.
THANKS THANKS THANKS!
excellent customer care
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.
Thank you for taking time to write the review. It was very nice to meet you and I am glad you all enjoyed your time at one of my homes and had great time in Lucca! Best regards, Sonia :)
