About the Owner
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

Amazing Lucca Terrace
This is a charming, spacious, easily accessible apartment for four/six people, situated close to the bus station and the BEAUTIFUL walls . Access is via a flight of stone steps (17) or elevator. The terrace is a joy and even in February we ate (and drank!!) outside enjoying the sunshine. I would highly recommend this apartment and Sonia and her team are charming hosts. Would stay there again
warm and helpful owner
We really enjoyed our week's stay in this apartment. The location is just excellent (fairly close to almost all of the city's highlights but in a quiet neighbourhood), Mrs Sonia is very helpful and friendly and an excellent host. The apartment itself is clean, spacious, and equipped with everything you need, and more, to do your own cooking. All this to a price you won't get a decent hotel room for within miles from where you would want to be. A real plus for families: the playground and the Comics museum are within 3 minutes of walking, and the great parks just a few paces more. The Cafe Bar at the corner is fine for a morning espresso or hot chocolate. Supermarkets are close by. This is a great place to stay in Lucca. We couldn't have wished for anything better!
Great expectations fullfilled
The stars of this apartment are the owner and the apartments location. It is literally about a 20m walk to the entrance of a convenient parking on one side and around 3 mins to the Cathedral Square and the shopping streets on the other side. We walked to all the major sights from the apartment. The owner was great, she gave us a thorough introduction to the apartment and then a tour of the local neighbourhood, which we really appreciated as it made finding cafe, supermarket and shops much easier the next day. We also appreciated her buying us an espresso, not just because Italian coffee is great, but because it allowed us to see how the cafe ordering system works - absolutely nothing like how it works here! The apartment is spacious and was perfect for our group of four ladies. Even though it's in the center of the town it's not noisy at all, as the square and streets nearby are mainly pedestrian. The kitchen was very well supplied and the beds were comfortable. We loved the romantic view from the terrace over the gardens and the old buildings! We loved our stay. Thank you! Barbara, Jane, Fiona & Amy
Hi Sonia! We are having a fabulous time! The apt is beautiful and so comfortable- we love the cross drafts that bring breezes into the house and of course the beautiful views are beyond wonderful. And the location- well, it couldn't be better, as you know. We loved Nonna Clara and the staff - have returned several times and also tried their other restaurant, Sergio. Had an incredible lasagne that I had to " walk off". We continue to explore and enjoy every bit of Lucca! Abby loves her language class, too. Looks like we will have to come back for a longer stay next time. Your property is perfect for us!
This is without doubt a gorgeous property in a historic palace. Beautifully furnished with washing machine, dishwasher etc.
However, it was a poor start to our holiday when we had to wait for 25 mins on the street for Sonia to meet us, despite us calling with an arrival time and then chasing up whilst we were stood outside the building to be told someone would be there within 5 mins and it was another 15 before we were let in. However, Sonia provided us with lots of useful information on where to go for meals and visits etc and a map of the town.
A previous reviewer commented on how comfortable the beds were, unfortunately we found them very uncomfortable both in the main bedroom and the twin room. And there wasn't really room for 4 people to sit comfortably on the sofa in the lounge.
The terrace was lovely and we enjoyed several lunches in the sun, joined by a cat who befriended us.
The other issue was the steps outside the entrance to the building seemed to attract a lot of students and they congregated here every lunchtime so you had to fight your way through to get into the building - I don't suppose the owners can do anything about this though. It just annoyed us.
For the top price paid for the rental, it would be nice if there were some little extras left in the apartment - some washing powder, washing up liquid, liquid soap in the bathrooms etc. We rent a lot in Florida and this is always provided and you just replace it if you finish it.
We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely visit Lucca again.
This Apartment is located just inside the impressive City Walls with easy access for a daily stroll around this attractive feature. Although this may not be the initial impression, the Apartment is only a short and interesting walk into the centre of Lucca and has, only a minute away, both bars and a restaurant which are very popular with the local residents with great atmosphere on Fridays and Saturdays in particular. Parking is of course prohibited in most of the Old Town although it is possible to use meter parking close by for unloading and loading and then to drive to the Mazzini car park (about 20 mins walk back) which is the only car park we discovered which had secure parking and easy payment by credit card. The Apartment has a nice patio and is in an attractive historic building. The only two minor issues we encountered were a poor Wi-Fi signal and the washing machine was not working. An excellent base for exploring Lucca.
