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 2012

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in Lucca if you are there for five days or more (and it is certainly a city worth spending time in). It is perfect for those with mobility issues because there is an elevator to reach the apartment door. The flat itself has everything you could want - a fully equipped kitchen including all the basic provisions to make a meal, such as olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The bathroom is new and recently done as Sonia told us and has a an excellent shower and is well lit. The living room is very comfortable, with quality couches. There is useful reading material in English about Lucca. And importantly, the bed, in a separate bedroom with good cupboard space is also very comfortable. The highlight for us was the view and the interiors - relaxing for having lunch or a glass of wine at the table, and being able to gaze around at Lucca's architectural wonders. There is a high quality grocery/delicatessen/wine shop practically next door (to the right from the front door) selling the best of Tuscan produce, and a very large supermarket tucked away downstairs in an arcade to the left just a minute's walk away. We tried a variety of local restaurants. We had several outstanding culinary experiences, and preferred the unpretentious osteria which offer limited menus of good home style Tuscan cooking and decent house wine for very reasonable prices. Lucca is a small city, and all its major attractions are within an easy stroll of the apartment. It also makes a good base to explore the Tuscan countryside or for a day trip to Florence. Not having a car we booked a day trip with local guide, to visit some wineries to try the famous red wines of Montecarlo. This was a great day out with a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend a stay in this Tuscan flat. Jane & Mat NY USA

Bellissima Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed in this wonderful apartment for a week in January 2015. It is exactly as described with the most spectacular views of both Lucca and beyond. It is large, warm, comfortable and very tastefully decorated and given the age of the palazzo is very modern. The inclusion of faultless and unrestricted wireless internet is a must. Sonia was an absolute pleasure to deal with - prompt with communication both prior to and during our stay. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and a visit to the wonderful town of Lucca - this was our second visit and won't be our last.

Lucca Apartment a glorious week in October

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for one glorious week in October 2014. The apartment was more than we hoped for. It's located in a residantial part of the town in the proximity of busy streets and markets but far away from the noise. The apartment is located in a quiet street and Lucca is a charming town that we fell in love with. The apartment was very clean and beautifully maintained. Even better than the pictures! Sonia was wonderful. She was very helpful especially when my friend's mother was hospitalized and Sonia was notified to tell my friend. She had much compassion and empathy. We will never forget our magical stay in Lucca.

Breathtaking views from a comfortable vantagepoint

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable, modern and spacious apartment offers luxurious accommodation for two or three people. The elevator is a luxury not often found in these gorgeous 15th and 16th century palazzi, and the views from the fifth floor over the terra cotta rooftops of Lucca and the snow peaked Apennines in the distance are just beautiful.

We have been to this apartment twice now for 2 months each of the stays and we have already booked for next winter.

As Good As It Gets

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our 12 night stay in this, the most beautiful of Italian cities. The apartment was large and airy, excellently stocked with all cooking utensils to take pleasure in ‘home cooked meals’ and my two children (8 & 11) absolutely loved it, enjoying the views from every window.

Quiet as a whisper and right in the heart of Lucca - who could ask for more. Will we be back - yes indeed. And thank you Sonia for making the whole experience so seamless.

Magical View From Every room

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our 12 night stay in this, the most beautiful of Italian cities. The apartment was large and airy and my two children (8 & 11) absolutely loved it, enjoying the views from every window. As soon as i got there I took about 20 photos from every window before my wife advised me to calm down.

Quiet as a whisper and right in the heart of Lucca - who could ask for more. Will we be back - yes indeed. And thank you Sonia for making the whole experience so seemless.
