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

Quiet but central location & beautiful terrace

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped and charming apartment. The main feature is the beautiful terrace with views of Torre Guinigi, the Lucca roof tops and the mountains in the distance. As other reviewers have mentioned there is a music school across the piazza which makes the experience of having coffee/breakfast on the terrace extra special. As is the case in the historic centre of Lucca there are many stairs to climb but they were manageable and a trade-off if you want beautiful views. We made use of the bicycles provided which was a lovely convenience. Mrs Sonia provides a file with some amazing information on supermarkets, restaurants, wine shops, sightseeing, transport etc etc. which we found to be very helpful! There is even information on where to buy gluten free foods which we found to be a great help too.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

The Suffragio Apartment was perfect for a recent trip to Lucca with a friend. It's beautifully decorated, well located and very comfortable. It had everything we needed and was a wonderful place to return to after a day of seeing Lucca's spectacular sites. We only cooked breakfast, but the kitchen looked to be very well appointed. The terrace was a WOW! I can't say enough about what a great apartment it is. Thank you Mrs Sonia for hosting us.

perfect apartment with impressive terrace in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just right for our lovely stay in Lucca. It was an easy walk to everywhere from the apartment (the train station was a very easy walk, and then the wall with the beautiful park was really steps away). The apartment was furnished with everything we needed, including kitchen items for cooking. The apartment owner was helpful, and it was very easy to arrange to meet to get and return the keys. I would highly recommend this for your stay in Lucca! The apartment has elevator leading to the magnificent terrace. We spent many hours watching the incredibly beautiful view. We will never forget.

Good location but .....

  • 2 of 5

Our evening flight arrived on time, manager knew our ETA but did not respond to more than ten calls. On arriving at the apartment we were kept anxiously waiting outside in street for 40 mins with luggage . We were aware of a charge for out of hours arrival but did not expect to pay the full amount because of having to wait so long. Initial impressions of the accommodation were poor as there is an internal door to another apartment within the property and noise and conversation can be clearly heard including a loud TV. (Very unusual and not mentioned in details)

Although the toilet was very clean, there was no toilet roll provided and no shop open at night (make sure you take your own) . You should also be aware that the upper bedroom would not be suitable for a small child as the steps are steep and open . The shower which is situated within the bedroom with no door, did not drain properly and we were plagued with mosquitoes inside the property throughout our stay and were bitten many times. We are convinced they were breeding In the stagnant shower water.

The location was however fantastic and the recitals from the music school opposite were wonderful. We also appreciated the use of bikes and although small and in need of a clean up, the terrace was an added bonus in a city centre location. Lucca is an amazing place and we would certainly recommend it . We would return to the area but to different accommodation.

Great Choice in Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Lucca. My husband and I stayed here for one week and were very happy with the apartment and its location. It is even nicer than the photos and all necessary amenities are supplied and it is very clean. The patio is just lovely with beautiful views of the town and surrounding hills. We saw an amazing lightning storm from the patio. The apartment is on a quiet street, but quite close to the Via Fillungo, the main street of Lucca. We appreciated the use of the bicycles and explored the entire town by bicycle. It will help you work off all the yummy food in Lucca!
