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 villa in 2012

like a 5 stars resort!

  • 5 of 5

My family - 8 adults and a one-year-old grandchild - stayed at this property for two weeks in the summer of 2014 and we loved every minute of it. The house itself was very spacious, well layed out, and everything we hoped it would be. It is also wonderfully located and within easy driving reach of all of the main tourist venues and attractions such as Pisa, Florence, Siena, the Chianti and the funny beaches. And of course Lucca, in less than 5 mins by car.

The pool was simply stunning and it was a great attraction for everyone after a day's driving and walking in the hot weather. The veranda in front of the pool allowed us to rest in the shadow and drink and chat with great views in front of the pool. The pool area has a barbeque, a toilet and a room where we could store our things and a refrigerator to keep food and drink cold. It was like a luxury 5 star resort!

The village of S. Maccario, a 5 mins walking distance or so from the property, is a relatively small hilltop village but it has everything a family on holiday could wish for including easy access to supermarkets and good restaurants (as well as offering stunning views in all directions!).

I'd have no hesitation in recommending the property to anyone looking for a special relaxing holiday exploring Tuscany.

We have just returned from a second visit to Lucca a few days ago (this time we stayed in town as there were only 4 of us) and again, we have rented from Sonia for the second time.

Thank you!

Wedding in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

I rented this villa, along with another one, for me and my family to stay at during my wedding in Lucca. Sonia and her family were very friendly. Sonia and I emailed back and forth several times about our arrival and she was always very responsive.

When we arrived she had the rental set up the way I asked, even making some special arrangements. The villa was clean and the rooms were all very comfortable. There is international television set up in a spacious TV room on the ground floor, which after traveling so long was a blessing to have channels our own your language.

The villas were set up so we could make food, brew coffee and do laundry, all of which went to great use. It's located close to a bus stop for the local bus. The local bus drives in a circle around town, so you can get most places with ease. Our other villa was in 5 mins drive.

Both the villas have a wonderful terrace with table and chairs. Our families spent many nights out on these drinking, laughing and admiring the view.

I would definitely recommend this villa to my friends and family. For the price and the amount of people you are able to fit, along with the friendliness of Sonia and her family you can't go wrong.

By the way, Sonia’s aunt saw my brother and two sisters on the side of the road arriving with all their luggage and lost because their phones weren't working. She asked where they were going and when they said Villa Querciabella. She put all them in her car and drove them right there. Also, Sonia’s friend is the vice Mayor and married me and my husband.

OUTSTANDING VILLA

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Sonia's Villa. It's in a beautiful area of Tuscany only a short way from Lucca with other places such as Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra as well as the villages of the Chianti region all within an hour or so's drive. Whilst the villa is in a quiet, unspoilt rural area, access to major roads is quick and easy which all adds to the ease with which you can explore this part of Tuscany. The villa is spacious and intimate. It is well equipped and has a real sense of character about it. It lies in lovely grounds with pool garden immediately adjacent to it. The outlook is across meadows and olive groves which we loved. We particularly enjoyed watching hoopoes feeding on the grass and redstarts nest building in the trees! It’s lovely to have a car to have daily trips (or at least to drive to the Lucca train station in 10 mins) while St Macario and the nearby St Alessio (the village in which the villa lies) are a lovely villages with several facilities and the nearest shops/supermarkets and restaurants if you want to eat out are within 5 mins driving. There is a bus at the top of the road for Lucca, but once again a car is far more convenient. In summary, the description you read of the property is accurate. It is clean and has the real sense of an antique villa, Sonia and Christina were extremely welcoming and helpful and we would certainly recommend the property to friends and family. It would be very hard to find anything negative to say about it. We certainly anticipate returning at some time ourselves to continue our exploration and appreciation of this fascinating part of Tuscany. Thanks Sonia for your impressive customer care. You have been wonderful.

A note of appreciation from Tom and Lana

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note of appreciation for all Sonia did during our recent visit...we will be back soon!... I have thought of Villa Querciabella often since my visit. It remains the highlight of the year for me. I so enjoyed it; the unique pool, dining al fresco, the wine and coffee, the trips to Lucca and the few errands (always completed with a cappuccino stop), meeting Mrs Sonia and having Cristina organizing Italian cooking lessons at the villa, my travels to Cinque Terre, the house and garden, the view and—best of all—laughing with friends and family on the front garden terrace. It was brilliant. Thank you ... Please keep me informed about the wine and/or olive harvest. I may well be back again soon.

a peaceful location with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Querciabella Villa. It's in a beautiful area of Tuscany only a short way from Lucca with other places such as Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra as well as the villages of the Chianti region all within an hour or so's drive. Whilst the villa is in a quiet, unspoilt rural area, access to major roads is quick and easy which all adds to the ease with which you can explore this part of Tuscany.

Querciabella is spacious and intimate. It is well equipped and has a real sense of character about it. It lies just behind the family's 18th Century villa in lovely grounds with pool garden immediately adjacent to it. The outlook is across meadows and fields. We particularly enjoyed watching hoopoes feeding on the grass and redstarts nest building in the trees!

It’s lovely to have a car to have daily trips (or at least to drive to the Lucca train station in 10 mins) while St Macario, the village in which the villa lies, is a lovely village with several facilities and the nearest shops/supermarkets and restaurants if you want to eat out are within 5 mins driving.

Outstanding Villa Querciabella & Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with this property is "Outstanding". The property is well kept and clean. Everything was in good working order. The view from all levels of the house is wonderful. Great for early morning coffee and late day wine drinking. The location is great. It is very easy to get to shops and restaurants. The local bus for Lucca stops at the end of the street. A great little food store is very close by as well. The best experience during our stay was the owner of the property, Sonia and her uncle. She was there upon our arrival to help us get adjusted to the house and answer any and all of our questions about where to find things and what to see while there. Her recommendations were 100% right on. Any thing we needed during our stay, she was there to make sure we got it. We can not express how great she was during our stay. This stay in this property was one of the best vacations we have every experienced. We would love to return some day to Lucca. If we do, we will definitely stay here again.
