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

The apartment is perfect and has everything you need. Plenty of nice bars and restaurants within walking distance and some great shops. Sonia was very helpful and we can't wait to come back! Try the little sandwich shop just down the road (Pan di Strada) loads of choice and open til midnight.

Grazie mille Sonia!

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at this apartment in Lucca. The owner was extremely helpful (important as we had additional requests because of our young grandson). It is in a perfect location - so close to the main square yet in a quiet corner. Loads of lovely restaurants on your doorstep and a supermarket which is well stocked. The apartment is really homely - it has everything you need and appliances are modern. Effective heating makes this a perfect retreat from the cold days! Excellent value and highly recommended. Most comfortable bed ever had –Wifi connection was fast and realiable. We're already planning our return trip to Lucca!

AN EXPERIENCE IN THE ART OF LIVING WITH MRS SONIA

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the apartment Diamante in August for 2 weeks and we felt like home. The apartment was very nice, clean, quiet and had everything we could have ever needed. The location was very convenient, close to the main attractions, but away from the crowds and noise. We found a supermarket only a block away and a local market two blocks away from the apartment which was very convenient. Mrs Sonia was always very helpful (thank you very much!). The information provided by her before our trip and in the apartment helped us to enjoy the city and everything it offers even more. We greatly appreciate the terrace which is superb and perfect to relax and for romantic dinners! The bikes provided were great. We ate at Giglio, walked on the walls, wine tasting at Enoteca Vanni, train to Montecarlo (Lucca central train station 5 mins walk from the apartment), bus to Florence and Uffizzi, took a ciy tour with your friend Sylvia from the TI and enjoyed it all. Thank you Mrs Sonia for your kind suggestions and your sweet memories of our visit to Tuscany and Lucca.
Staying in this apartment was an experience in the art of living. I will definitely recommend this wonderful apartment to my friends and I will definitely stay there again if I go back.

dear Mrs Sonia, I just wanted to say what a fabulous time we had in Lucca, it
was our second stay at Casa Diamante and it was just as good as the first time, we felt right at home! Many thanks for making our stay in Lucca special again. We love the apartment and the people. Your terrace in the sun made our mornings memorable.

Spotless

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful third floor apartment, with a lovely outdoor area. It is very light and airy, and is furnished to a very high standard. It has a wonderful kitchen. The apartment is very well kept, and spotless. The outside area with the outdoor furniture was well used for morning coffee (when the weather was generous!), predinner drinks etc. Its is really just over from the Citadella parking which is OK once you sort how it can work (you can order a car spot for just 50 euros) The property manager is very welcoming, informative, and helpful. We enjoyed our time here and felt like at home and would stay at this apartment again if we were in Lucca.
