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 2016

Great stay, comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had our family of three adults traveling in march, and this flat was in just the right location to retreat back to during the cold afternoons to let our feet recover from much exploring. We were within walking distance to everything we wanted to visit while in the city of Lucca. Access to trains to go on day trips outside the shops were also within a short distance. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, along with a well equipped kitchen for cooking in on the occasions we had to try fresh fish and produce from the local groceries. We were also within short walking distances to some highly recommended restaurants in Lucca -- one of which is in the square immediately adjacent to the apartment street. Also the best cappuccino and gelato in Lucca are also available in the same square. The property owners were a delight to work with, and helpful with all sorts of information and helped us to the nearby market. We have rented from Mrs Sonia through her agency called Lucca Apartments and Villas several times and I would make this visit again!

Really nice apartment in great location just inside the walls

  • 5 of 5

Although we enjoyed visits to Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre we absolutely loved Lucca. Because of the trips planned and needing to use the train a fair bit we looked for a place to stay on the south side not too far from the station and this was ideal being an easy 5 to 8 minute walk. The apartment was on the first floor and had everything we needed. It was a reasonable size well furnished, comfotable and fairly quiet. The kitchen was well equipped. There were a few minor niggles like the shower being a bit intermittent, the bathroom floor often being wet due to a possible leak somewhere and having difficulty in shutting the front building door! Lucca is a super walled city and although the best restaurants seem to be on the other side nowhere was too far to walk and we seemed to keep finding new and interesting places whenever we went out. Highlight was hiring bikes to cycle around the walls - an excellent bike rental shop is on the same road as the apartment 2 minutes away. Mrs Sonia was a nice person to deal with and helpful when we arrived. We will definitely come again.

Terrific little apartment meeting all of our basic needs.

  • 4 of 5

We loved Lucca and this apartment was part of it. The location was great, close to the train station and easy to find. Communication with Mrs. Sonia was also good. The apartment itself had everything we needed. The bed was decent, the kitchen well equipped and the space was decorated nicely and clean. The only reason I did not give it five stars was that the water pressure in the shower was almost non-existent. Perhaps this is common for Lucca but it was not our experience in other areas of Italy. Bottom line - we would stay again and would certainly recommend Mrs. Sonia for someone to rent from.

Comfortable peaceful apartment in excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

This comfortable peaceful apartment, in a excellent location, was perfect for our two week stay in Lucca. Mrs. Sonia is absolutely charming, so helpful with good ideas and recommendations. This is the second VRBO accommodation we have rented through her, and we look forward to renting with her again. There is an excellent restaurant immediately below the apartment , and then another casual artisan pasta cafe a block away on the same street. The apartment location is an easy walk to Porto San Pietro, and then to the train station.
