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 2010

You look hundreds of apartments, but when you take the one you still wonder if it's the right decision. My holiday is over, and i know i did the right one. Everything was like description said. Me and my husband stayed here 7 nights. Owner and housekeeper were both very, very helpful. Everybody had said it before, but i must do it also - the location of the apartment is unbelievable. You can spend whole day just visiting the Anfiteatro, Via Fillungo or strolling along the medieval streets (all in front of the apartment). We also had an Italian language course at the KOINE school which is located just behind the apartment, in walking distance. When you need to go further there is a railway station just two minute walk. We want to come back next summer and stay here three weeks. It tells everything. Thank you!

Many thanks for your help in making this trip

  • 5 out of 5
My stay at Boccherini Apartment was truly one of my top three most wonderful highlights of my 16 week holiday in Europe in 2014. Sonia is an amazing host and delightful woman. She went completely above & beyond with so many unexpected extras and kindness that I felt so very sad to say goodbye...I felt part of the Lucca 'family' for that little while..including a most delicious Tuscan home-cooked feast..with grappa to finish off with..fabulous! 
The apartment itself is charming, spotlessly clean with all the authentic Tuscan touches of home - including a gorgeous view over the surrounding garden and old buildings. 
I had a car and bicycle so getting around Lucca was no trouble at all. A convenient parking is located in a short walking distance from the apartment. Sonia was very prompt and helpful both in the leadup to my stay and offered lots of local suggestions relevant to my interests. It is a treat to stay inside of Lucca in such a quiet charming place, a little away from all the crowds and experience of little of true Lucca lifestyle but still being in the mos tcentral location.
Quite simply, don't miss this place in your travels .. or the dining place at the bottom of street.. Tordelli to die for!!! I hope to return one day soon..
Thank
Annah

Excellent Apartment for Staging your Move to Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived in Lucca on February 1st and yes the apartment was great! We loved the layout and it was so quiet within the apartment and the garden atmosphere was so quiet. The location was great in central Lucca attractions but on a quiet street that gave us a sense of what it is like to live as an italian which was a wonderful experience.
The apartment has an excellent location. Tourist sites, markets, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance and most bus routes can be taken from within 100 mts of the apartment. Sonia was most helpful on our arrival to give us directions, recommendations and suggestions on things to do.

The apartment is also well appointed with a large and comfortable living room and 2BR and 1 Bath. The beds are comfortable and the Bathroom is spacious and one has large shower. Wi-fi connection was reliable and fast, household appliances all new, lot of sun from the big franch windows. Not to mention the antique painted palace where the apartment is located: we took many pictures of the hall.

We stayed 3 weeks at the apartment and its closeness to the International Italian School made it an ideal location for staging our move into Lucca. This is a real luxury place and what we were really looking for. Sonia was very helpful and sweet and I would recommend this apartment to all of my friends! Thank you.

Garden is a wow!

  • 5 out of 5
WOW WHAT CAN I SAY. PERFECT APARTMENT, PERFECT LOCATION, JUST ONE GREAT PLACE TO STAY. THE OWNER SONIA WAS VERY HELPFUL. EXTREMELY SAFE IN APARTMENT... LUCCA IS A GREAT CITY TO VISIT--- OUR FAVORITE SITE WAS THE PIAZZA SAN MICHELE JUST ACROSS THE STREET, IT IS SPECTACULAR. I RECOMMEND TAKING A DAY TRIP TO FLORENCE OR ANOTHER NEAR BY CITY. ONE CAN EASILY REACH BUS STATION WALKING AND GO FOR THE DAY. IT WAS VERY NICE, THERE ARE MANY CITES. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE. IT IS BETTER THAN THE PICTURES SHOW AND ROOMS ARE LARGE ESPECIALLY BY EUROPEAN STANDARDS. BATHROOM AND APARTMENT ALL JUST REMODELED. THE GARDEN WAS LOVELY AND ROMANTIC FOR MORNING BREAKFAST AND COULD HEAR THE PIANO MUSIC FROM THE NATIONAL MUSIC SCHOOL NEARBY. GREAT GARDEN SOFA TO SIT AND ENJOY WINE. VERY RELIABLE WI-FI CONNECTION. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. LOVED OUR STAY. BEST PLACE WE STAYED AT WHILE VISITING ITALY FOR A MONTH. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING

5 star review

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was perfect for our needs- comfortable and very well equipped and beautifully clean. The situation is very good, close to shops, restaurants and only a short walk to the railway station. it was lovely to have our own garden even if the weather meant that we couldn't enjoy it as much as we liked. It was a treat to hear the music students practising during the day - an unexpected perk of the property!
The host organised everything for us brilliantly - the car from the airport, the biscuits and water to cover our late arrival and putting us in touch with her lovely colleague Mr Calabrese so that we could book a guided tour of Lucca, which we would recommend. Our host always did what she said she was going to do very promptly and efficiently, which made everything happen very smoothly.
We didn't have a car but were glad we didn't . Although there are few steps to the apartment (only 2 low steps), it was perfect for someone with limited mobility.
I am happy to recommend this wonderful apartment , Mr Calabrese’s guided tours and of course, Lucca itself!

Lived up to all our expectations and more!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a long, long time choosing which house to rent in Lucca. We have rented many houses abroad and know how careful you have to be when choosing. This was the only house we found in all our searches that had excellent reviews throughout and no negative comments. Was this too good to be true? Not at all! Sonia's house was absolutely perfect. The pictures on the web sites are very realistic but make the property look smaller, if anything, than it actually is. It is equipped to a very high standard and we found everything we needed and more. The beds are very comfortable and the wonderful Italian shutters block out the light so well that sleeping in is much easier! The garden area and views are lovely - a real treat to wake up to in the morning. The neighbours are friendly but do not intrude so you feel immediately at home and welcome.

Our party was made up of four adults, two in their 50s and two (us) in our 60s. Everyone loved the house and would like to go back. There was room around the table for great mealtimes and lively and enthusiastic games of cards but equally enough space in the house to allow everyone to have some time out.

The location is perfect for travelling. Very easy to get to and from either airport (Sonia's directions are very clear and foolproof). We went to the local beach at Viareggio and also travelled further a field to TorreLago (worth the drive as it's breathtaking, particularly the less commercial beach on the south of the harbour which you may have to ask directions to otherwise it's difficult to find). Getting into Florence and other cities such as Rome is very easy. A short walk to the train station then 50 minutes trip (to Florence) on the very frequent and reliable train and 1 hour more to Rome. We often came home late at night and always found it safe, quick and easy.

The booking, payment and administration were very easy and Sonia and her employees were every bit charming. In fact, we were late arriving due to delayed flights and Sonia guided us around town in her car trying to find somewhere to eat, she also sent us very helpful details of where to have the best dinner and was most helpful in every respect.

Thanks again for a wonderful week.
