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 2018

Good location, charming property.
A beautifully decorated property, comfortable bed and all mod cons including washing machine which we used every day to catch up on laundry. Never come in the first week of October unless you’re a comics freak. Every piazza and spare space has a big white tent in it which completely spoils vistas and photo shots of this lovely town. We would have liked heaters on but that’s beyond control of owner, it’s a municipal thing that they can’t be turned on before November. Cooking facilities were well used, suits 2 people perfectly. Good reading material provided esp history of Lucca.
Dear Kathy, thank you very much for taking precious time off to share your invaluable feedback with us. Yes, the LAST week of October is always busy in Lucca because of the International Lucca Comics Festival that brings to town over 200.000 visitors from all over the world.. so better to avoid this time frame if you want to expericen calm Lucca! It makes me so happy to learn that the most paramount pilar of my service philosophy, accommodating my guests' needs and enabling their desires was met. Thank you for booking my house, we look forwards to meet you again in the future. Sonia and the Lucca Apartments and Villas Team.
Wonderful flat inside the walls of Lucca in a quiet residential neighborhood. The apartment is as good as it looks in the photos and very comfortable as well. The host met us when we arrived at the flat and gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment an Lucca. We highly recommend.
Sonia is a very pleasant, helpful, interesting person with good recommendations for things to do.
Exceptionally nice apartment in a quiet section of the Old City. Cannot think of anything one could improve upon.
Exquisite, spacious apartment in enchanting city with wonderful communication from Mrs. Sonia!
Where do I begin? The apartment is in an historic building just inside the walls of Lucca. It's spacious, beautifully decorated and appointed, and full of amenities. There is a full kitchen with microwave and dishwasher and lovely dishes. If you plan to catch up on washing some clothes there is a dishwasher and a large area outside the kitchen and bedroom window to hang your clothes, complete with a basket of clothespins. The queen bed is extremely comfortable, and there is air conditioning. The bathroom is beautiful and there is a hairdryer. The living room and dining room are spacious and comfortable. There is a TV, but we couldn't find any news in English; a very, very minor point. Some one from the rental office meets you at the apartment and gives you a thorough introduction to how everything works, and to the very well organized recycling program the city has developed. There is a book with a wealth of information, including suggestions for in-home cooking lessons, andinformation about a lovely couple who provide tours of the city, or (in our case) a lovely day trip outside the walls of Lucca to see the countryside. Isa and her husband provided an unforgettable day for us - - they are a lovely couple.
IMPORTANT! If you are arriving by train with luggage, we found out the hard way that there are two ways to get from the train station into the walled city. The easiest way by FAR is to come out the front of the train station and turn to the right. It won't look logical to you, as you can see a square and a street crossing if you look the other direction. TRUST ME! Turn RIGHT and walk on the right side of a building without a roof; walk around the end of that building (between it and the next) and turn left. You'll see a pharmacy up on the right on the corner of a boulevard. Turn right there, and walk along the boulevard until you pass a bus stop. You can cross the boulevard there and you'll see the wall of Lucca. Follow the pedestrian path straight to the wall, and you'll wind thru a tunnel with a stony rough incline and then easily out through the gate into the city.
This was a five star experience!
We loved our stay in Lucca! The Sonia and Chiara were so generous and kind and attended to all our needs, even surprising us with an elegant breakfast one morning. Their home is in a beautiful part of Lucca inside the city. The apartment is delightful and the bedding and equipments was perfect and top class! We felt so loved and cared for by this family. I worried that since we didn't have a car we would have trouble getting around but Sonia generously dropped us off at the Train Station (whichj by the way is in a 5 mins walk away). This was a five star experience!
Dear Kerry, thank you very much for taking precious time off to share your invaluable feedback with us. It makes me so happy to learn that the most paramount pilar of my service philosophy, accommodating my guests' needs and enabling their desires was met.
