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 2011

I would make this visit again

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely fantastic - it is huge. The windows overlooks a quiet square, perfect for watching the world go by. The apartment location is excellent: inside the walls and in a short walk to everything. Above all, the owners were so very helpful in all aspects of our stay. They went out of their way to provide us with every assistance. The practical information on getting out and about in Lucca provided by the owners was very welcome. We rented 2 apartments from Sonia in the same building as there were 4 couple in our party and both apartments were spotlessy clean and comfortable. Would stay there again. Thanks Sonia!

stylish apartment in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful apt. in March. It is exactly like the pictures, and had everything and more then we needed. It was spotlessly clean, and beautifully decorated. Mrs. Sonia gave us a map of Lucca with suggestions of sights and restaurants, which turned out to be delicious. The location makes it easy to go anywhere within the walls, with lots of restaurants and attractions close by. We would love to go back and stay again, and would definitely recommend booking with Mrs. Sonia.

very clean and up to date

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely wonderful apartment and location! Sonia, the owner, is very pleasant and helpful. It was great to have her so close by. The apartment is spacious, charmng and very clean, there was nothing to complaint about. We visited in early March 2018 and we found both the sofa and the chairs absolutely clean. Everything was absolutely perfect and up to date. Sonia's services were valuable and the information she provided about Lucca and things to do was a great help. Sonia always make sure that her guests are having the best time staying at this apartment. We rented a villa for the previous week (from Sonia as well) and had an incredible experience. My friends and I would certainly stay here again! Thanks Sonia, see you soon!

Beautiful! A very special place!

  • 4 of 5

Arriving in this apartment was wonderful, and exactly like the photos. The flat is beautiful, with very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, and lounge area. Great kitchen for preparing meals, and reasonable kitchen cookware provided. Very convenient having laundry facilities. Lovely location within the walls of the old city. Amazingly comprehensive information in the booklet provided, and Sonia met us on arrival and explained all we needed to know. And we made use of the bike provided to ride around the city walls! The only small disappointment was that the lounge and kitchen chairs where very marked and appeared dirty – which somewhat confused us given the high standard of everything else in the flat. If I’m every back in Lucca (fingers crossed!) I will definitely book accommodation again with Mrs. Sonia.

Owner's Response: Dear Pamela, I am so sorry you had a bad feeling about the apartment. If you would have alerted me I would have done all the best to improve your feeling about the apartment and would have provided an upgrade into another apartment if you did not wish to stay there. If an aartment is really dirty I assume you would not accept to live there so I expect the traveller to contact me.. but I have not received any notice from you.

Great location. Charming apartment

  • 4 of 5

This lovely spacious apartment is on the ground floor. We considered that a real plus! The apartment is close to everything. We walked with our luggage from the train station. Many restaurants nearby. We attended Puccini's opera which is located right across the square. The opera was amazing! We walked on the wall which surrounds Lucca and climbed the towers to a fantastic view of Lucca and the countryside. We hired a driver for a day in Sienna and San Gimignano...ending our day at the I BALZINI winery. What a magical day!

The only reason we didn't give this beautiful place a 5 star review, is because the sofa is terribly stained. Everything else was wonderful with a designers touch: the art, the bathrooms, the kitchen, the bedrooms. Thank you Sonia for providing this lovely place.

The apartment is located in the aquare where it takes place the antique market and also where it is located the famous church where every afternoon it takes place the Puccini arias concert.

The apartment is also located nextdoor to the theatre 'teatro del giglio' and the square piazza napoleone where the summer festival takes place. The apartment is located very close to the train station of lucca, in less than 5 mins walking.

In 1 mins walking from the apartment there is a bike rental shop, bakeries, groceries and so on.

The apartments are located in a very quiet square where there are no clubs and shops, so it makes it very very quiet.

The church bells do not work, so it is quiet!
