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 2013

Great spot in Lucca
My daughter and her close friend just finished a three week stay. Outstanding would be how they described this place. Spacious and well equipped. They liked the location and Sonia was helpful and caring. We were concerned about our baby girl staying in Italy, but the accommodations turned out even better than expected. This one is a winner.
Charming apartment in the heart of Lucca’s old city
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Sonia was very helpful with details. She kindly allowed us to leave our bags in the house for a few hours after check out on the final day.
Ear plugs are helpful to lessen nighttime street noise.
Dear Oliver, 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. Thank you for booking my house, we look forwards to meet you again in the future. Sonia and the Lucca Apartments and Villas Team.
Enjoyable withe the exception of noisy neighborhood.
Lucca is a beautiful town. Sonia was a gracious host. She responded quickly. The apartment was spacious and clean. I would love to return to Lucca. However, i would prefer a quiter neighborhood the bar on the next street is very lively and loud. You can't open the windows because of the noise and mosquitoes. The owner would benefit to put screens in so you dont have to run air conditioning during the day as there always seems to be a nice breeze in Lucca.
Thank you Mary, it was a great pleasure to host you!
Your suggestions are so precious, I will definitely install screens at the windows.. I appreciate suggestions from my guests that had the chance to live in my places so I improve the quality of the house and their experience with the houses. Yes, I have to agree, being on the major street of Lucca you can hear some people chatting along the way while doing shopping despite the apartment does not face the street level. Thanks again Mary! I would love to welcome you back in any of my 100+ properties on my site Lucca Apartments and Villas.
I had a truly wonderful experience staying at the apt. Bastione in Lucca.I was there for 9 days. Some of the time I had friends visiting and for about 4-5 days I was alone.I felt very secure when alone. 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 the USA. It was with pleasure to discover how accurate were the pictures and description of the apartment. The restaurants were delightful and everything within walking distance and convenient.My niece's engagement was celebrated in the garden and then at 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 as well as the stairs are affordable. We walk 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 for future travellers
Thank you Amanda for taking precious time off to share your invaluable feedback with us. It was delightful to leanr that one of the most paramount pillars of our service philosophy, accommodating our guests' needs and enabling their desires was met. I look forward to meet you again in the future! Mrs Sonia and the Lucca Apartments and Villas team
A few things to consider
We had a lovely two week stay in this property however, there are a few things to be aware of. 1) The property is located on the main shopping street at a point where students congregate in the evening. It can be noisy until midnight and beyond some evenings-bring ear plugs! 2) North American travelers should be aware that the cost for heat is a seperate charge as it is a regulated and expensive utility in Italy. 3) The second bedroom window opens into a hallway that is closer to the late evening noise source-bring another pair of ear plugs! 4) The second bath shower is collapsable. Just a few things to be aware of. It would have been helpful to have a visitors instruction book too however, none of these things seriously impacted our stay and Mrs. Sonia was helpful and easily reachable. Lucca is a lovely town!
Thank you Susannah for your review! The housebook with instructions is in the apartment and the heating is charged extra for a daily and it is stated on the online page. Everything stated online so travellers will not incur in surprises. It was a deep pleasure to meet you and host you! Sonia
Excellent for short and longer terms
This was our favorite out of the five places we stayed in Tuscany and wish we could have stayed longer. This apartment has a delightful character and it is located in a very central location with many shops, restaurants and atms/ nearby. It is well maintained and the perfect size for four people. We found the apartment to be quiet and had no problems at all during our stay. The close by free parking made daily trips easy and convenient. The owner, Sonia was helpful and friendly as well as fluent in English (fortunately for us) Mrs. Sonia who managed the booking was most helpful. We highly recommend this apartment and would stay there again.
This apartment is a wonderful way to experience Lucca and its surrounding areas. Lucca is still a relatively uncrowded city with many one-of-a-kind shops, good restaurants and beautiful architectural vignettes at every turn. Its spectacular walls, where everyone should have a walk at sunset, are a treasure to behold. It is a city of bicycles, the preferred mode of transportation, frequent train and bus service to Florence, Pisa and the Tuscan shore makes Lucca a very desirable base for exploring this area of Tuscany.
