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

Fantastic apartment in the centre of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellent.. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to cook meals for our family and baby grandson who had just commenced solids. The huge living area was lovely to sit on and relax whilst drinking coffee or a wine. We had almost every meal in the apartment. It was also great for the children to play on. The antique palace had a courtyard which was also good to allow our children to play. The apartment was close to shops and the free parking was right behind the apartment. It also has bikes, very rare! It was close to the train which allowed us to go into Rome and sight-see. There are plenty of resturants around for dining and even exciting groceries. Overall the apartment was neat , clean and well presented. Sonia was a fantastic host and made extra efforts to accommodate my family. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Lucca and will do it again next time we travel to Italy (2 years). Thank you!

Great Location and Lots of Room

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is ideal. Very close to san Michele square and via fillungo and the public transportation, but it's on the "residential" side of the town: an elegant and quiet street. So you feel a little more like a "local". The Duomo and train station are both about 5/10 minutes walk or less. The apartment itself is very nice and roomy. We're a family of 4 and everyone was comfortable. Everything was clean and ready for us on arrival. Mrs Sonia checked us in and spent plenty of time showing us her recos on a map - even providing us with a list of favorite restaurants of all types. She also takes the time to show every nook and cranny of the apartment so you know how to use everything. The beds are new and comfortable, the apartment is fresh, well decorated and maintained. Wi-fi connection for free and elevator. Everything worked smoothly. We recommend this apartment. Liz

Sonia is a great host

  • 5 of 5

Mrs Sonia and her selection of apartments was highly recommended by a family member and we were not disappointed. From the start Mrs Sonia helped us choose the right apartment for our party of 4 (2 senior couples) Sonia kept in touch with us regularly, and made sure we found our way to the apartment with ease. Casa Simonetta was all we could have wished for. The apartment was incredibly spacious, grand and had everything we needed including access to bikes. The owner Mrs Simonetta could not have been more helpful. It was a joy to stay there.

We will definitely return to Lucca and would highly recommend Mrs Sonia. Thank you Sonia and Simonetta.

we will be back

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay here in late early november. After a previous week at a couple of hotels it was good to have an apartment with your own space for eating and washing. There was lots of room for the four of us. The apartment was very handy for amenities nearby also. We loved the character of the apartment and having the bike with our own garage attached to the apartment was a real bonus. Sonia was easy to deal with and took great care of us. She was helpful and smiling and answered promptly to all our questions and concerns.

The two towers you can climb at Lucca are well worth a visit and the walls are very special. I ran around them a couple of times and its interesting seeing all the locals either walking or running or taking their dogs for walks.

One day we travelled early to Pisa by train and so missed the crowds when going up the leaning tower. We also had trips into the Garfagnana area and to the seaside which is very close.

Lucca Treasures

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for making our holiday at Casa Simonetta so pleasant. We loved the apartment and the way you decorated. Every piece tells history. The location is very romantic and in a quiet area close to the main shopping and sights. And we will never forget it. All the rooms and the bedrooms are very spacious, the kitchen was superbly equipped. The huge living room had a fantastic design with its high beamed ceiling! This is an apartment where I could live for longtime, I also felt 'very secure'. Instructions for meeting were clear, arrival worked smoothly and our host was promptly over the phone for any request. Thank you very much Sonia, it’s always a pleasure to come back to Lucca and renting one of your properties!

Poor and would not go back to this place again

  • 1 of 5

I loved Lucca and will go back. This was my first home away experience. I was with Matz Peretz family who also was there in a gorgeous place that ms Sonia had rented them. Mine regrettably was quite flawed. No Ac but fir one room and I mentioned it day one to the gal who met me there and she denied nicely that fact so the heat was awful but for one bedroom which was marginal but doable. Next not one glass in kitchen but since I could stay in any room due to the heat I managed. Was never going to use the room. The dryer did not work and despite an email to that effect by Jesse Matz who tried to help me by writing we heard nothing so no clothes were not washed. While maybe it worked I needed a lesson on how not just to be told that it was a dryer and a washer as it was way more complicated than USA. The good news is while spending most of my waking time at Matz Peretz place I came to understand it was possible to have very decent modern housing which is the only kind I would be interested in. So in short I did not feel that this place had done the right job at all and concluded they should remove it fix the Ac the dryer provide glasses and consider washing the stone floor which was dirty and required feet washing whenever I walked across is barefooted. I am glad to be able to share this and believe that if ms Sonia did these things it would have been fine. I still want better but it would have worked
