5 stars for mrs sonia!

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect. Great location, great apartment, and fantastic service from Sonia. My wife and I came to Lucca after spending nine busy days and nights in Rome and Florence, and found 12 nights of wonderful living with Sonia's help in this fine city. The apartment, in a corner of Lucca inside the wall, is nestled close one of the causeways leading to the top of the wall located among wonderful bakeries and shops. It was sparkling clean, with an excellent kitchen, a dining area, a sitting aroom, one romantic bedroom, and a new bathroom. The excellent wifi and the laundry equipment were bonuses.
The real star were Sonia and , who met us at the apartment with keys and information, and patiently walked us through the use of the washing machine and dryer and the stove. She also provided us with her book on things to do and see around Lucca, which we used every day. Her recommendations for best gelato, best bicycle rentals, best place to buy groceries (including a section on where to buy groceries on Sundays) and other travel-friendly recommendations, were fantastic. This was a real treat, and the places recommended were excellent. (Sonia's choice for the best gelato outside the walls was fun: we stopped there twice, and the owner was unaware that her shop had been on Sonia's list)
We loved Rome, and we loved Florence, but we really fell in love with Lucca. I now understand why many travel writers speak so highly of the city; we found ourselves just walking or bicycling through the city, or using it as a jump off point for the Cinque Terra and Pisa, and there are historic buildings and sights we never got around to seeing. Big parts of our enjoyment of Lucca were the fantastic accommodations and the wonderful help we received from Sonia. We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough, or the service, and the price was a bargain.
I suspect we will try in the future to return to Lucca, and Sonia will be our first call. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. This place was recommended to us by a friend in Nashville, Tennessee, where we live, and Sonia is welcome to give my contact information to anyone wanting to follow up on this comment for more information or a "live" report.

Thank you for your hospitality!

  • 5 out of 5
From the minute we walked into the Apartment, we were over-whelmed. The apartment surpassed our expectations. We were a group of 5 adults and there was plenty of room. The location is perfect for walking around Lucca and for getting to the train. Being in such a central location and with the bikes, we simply couldn't have been happier. 
All in all our stay in Lucca has been perfect. We love everything about the apartamento. It is so comfortable and inviting and with such a charming views. Our host, Sonia, was very helpful and her homemade rhubarb jam was delicious. We would highly recommend this charming apartment.
Having Sonia was really the icing on the cake - to have all our endless questions answered - where to go for everything - where to shop, where to eat, where is the best cheese, the best fruit, the best pasticeria, the best forno, etc etc Sonia knew it all and was willing to take the time to help us. It was also a real treat and nice change to have her friend Mrs Cristina to cook us a delicious lunch and dinner after a wonderful cooking course.
So we are very grateful for all you have done to make our holiday in Lucca one of the best we have experienced.  Hopefully, some day we will return
Thank you Thank you. 
Best Regards. 
Evan and Sheena + Don and Jane

a dream location

  • 5 out of 5
Dream location on quiet square overlooking Romanesque church and amazing charming views, yet close to shops, restaurants and public transportation. Easy parking by cathedral 2 minutes away. House very well equipped and furnished, with spacious bedrooms and a separate laundry room. Stylish decoration creates "home" rather than "rental" atmosphere. Wi-fi works great. Helpful owner is clearly in love with this property and you will be too!

Like at home

  • 5 out of 5
have just returned from nearly two months in Italy, and used this website for all my accommodations. I stayed in Rome for a week, then in Venice for a month with friends, taking day trips by train, then to Lucca. I traveled with my husband and another couple to Lucca and stayed in this cozy apartment for 3 weeks. After I got over my first fear that I would become hopelessly lost in Lucca, I discovered that was exactly what I wanted to do. In the process I encountered such unexpected beauty. Mrs Sonia’s apartment was so easy to get to and to use as a home base. There is a great view from the apartment. The owner provided us with many information: menus, books and maps. The train made distances easy to cover for daily trips, and I soon learned that walking was often the fastest way around when in town. The owner has thought of just about everything. Everything I needed was there. The apartment price was more than fair and I liked that it was all inclusive (no hidden add-on costs), which was not the case for my apartments in Venice and Rome. The apartment is in a prestigious and elegant area, just in front of the new Lu.CC.a Contemporary Art museum, and I was able, in a limited way, to engage in the daily lives of some of the neighboring businesses and cafes. After the second morning, the bar (coffee house) owner greeted me as if I was a local. The apartment was described accurately and was spotless. It is perfect for 1 or 2 couples. It certainly was perfect for our party. My suggestion if you're wondering how long to stay, try to stay at least 7 nights (or even more). Make the trip to Florence and Siena, it's worth it, but not for more than a daily trip: too busy, too hot, too many tourist traps! It was very easy and cheap with the train to get there. In Lucca the minor museums may not be as well visited as the Contemporary Art Museum, but they houses some of the most impressive antique collections from the first half of the 14th century that can be seen in Europe. There are wonderful restaurants throughout Lucca, and people watching couldn't be better! The colour of the buildings along in the Anfiteatro square, in the afternoon light, is a photographers dream. Thank you Mrs Sonia, you made my trip to Lucca, perfect!

Lucca is a magnificent town!

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Mrs Sonia, Well, we are back home to rainy england from lovely Lucca and had an amazing time. You have a beautiful town and we didn't want to leave it! The people are so warm and friendly. Now to the beautiful accommodation, it was beautiful. Spotlessly clean and so very big. We really enjoyed every minute of our time there. The location is wonderful and whilst our weather was not so good, we made use of the bicycles that your kind friend provided every day. They were a real bonus! So Mrs Sonia, thank you once again for letting us rent tour Casa SaintFrancesco. We hope to return one day and stay for a much longer time. With thank, Sarah and Neil
