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 2011

Special place

  • 4 of 5

Truely lovely appartment. Very spacious, and clean. Bathrooms well outfitted. Kitchen modern and well stocked. Overall feeling of being in an old pilazzo, with fine decor. Very nicely located at ground level, only a few steps, witch is difficult to find in Lucca. Exterior entrance from main square, and then privet door from interior corridor. Very secure. Location close to everything. Many restaurants nearby.

Look for the theater piazza, which is built over the original roman theater. Climb the towers for great views. Walk the top of wall, or ride bikes, for views all around Lucca, it's quite special. If you are there on weekend you will find antique market at your doorstep, and in surrounding piazzas. Our favorite restaurants were les Arts, straight up street from front door on the right, and Il Corso also close by. Corso had most amazing service and food. Waiter very attentive and made you feel like a guest, not just a customer.

Will come back again I hope, this is a special place

Spend a few days in this lovely spot

our Lucca hideaway

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four experiencing Europe for the first time, this apartment did not disappoint and made us very proud of our choice. The location was great, with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. We felt very safe and comfortable with the neighborhood and often went out for walks at night. The apartment provided our two teenagers and 20 year old with enough space for their winding down time at the end of a busy day touring Lucca. The wireless internet worked very well and we were able to keep up with things back home. The perfectly appointed kitchen allowed us to have breakfast in the morning before our daily departure and provided us with the flexibility of being able to eat in if we decided to do so. The unit was very clean and well furnished. The photos accurately reflect the apartment's appearance and amenities. We would recommend this property to anyone with a group/family of 4. The apartment is large apartment on the ground floor and there were very few steps to reach the apartment door which makes this apartment ideal for elderlies and for people with walking problems. In our opinion, the views from the windows were very nice and the greenery in the square made the atmosphere very relaxing. Finally, the location makes an ideal quiet stay. We loved the apartment and Mrs Sonia was a delight. Thank you for providing your excellent service and for guiding us into choosing the right apartment for our needs.

Loved it once again!

  • 5 of 5

Once again Mrs Sonia and her team came thru. We had a big group but the three apartments were perfect, in a perfect location, all in the same building just down the street to the ice skating and main plaza. We were able, everyday, to just walk down to the Show where the Puccini concerts took place. No problem to get there, walk from station was short, bus was available and our favorite restaurant that Sonia suggested called GIGLIO was just one small block from apartments. We have stayed in Sonia’s apartments before, always have really like it and this time they had updated the bathrooms, very nice job. We love this area, lots of food, lots of shopping, great transportation. We are not afraid of buses or trains. We will probably come here again in Fall, great weather, not as many tourists, lots of fun everywhere. Loved it!

a nest in the peaceful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in this apartment for 7 days November. We found it to be very clean, lots of nice quality linens and a great location for exploring Tuscany: we found it to be just what we wanted, and expected from the description. The kitchen is small but very well stocked! Everything works well, as was explained by our gracious host who welcomed us and showed us around. The apartment is very well located in Lucca, there are many great restaurants and amazing gelato just steps from your front door. It is a very easy walk from the train station to the apartment (less than 5 minutes). We visited in the middle of a very lovely November (best time to visit). Lucca from the flat is a treat, and basic groceries are available just round the corner. We really enjoyed Stella Polare, a bar/trattoria just up the street which serves wonderful 'aperitivi' [i.e.appies] with a good glass of local wine for 5 euros, and their Chicken alla Cacciatore is pretty good too! The 4.2 Km walk round the wall is just the thing to start the day, and there are bikes availble nearby for 3 euros per hour. For dinner with a tablecloth, try Giulio, and, if you want to eat with Italians, inside is the place to be! Altogether, a great week in an outstanding apartment. We highly recommend it and we would stay here again when visiting Tuscany.

a second excellent visit to Lucca

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to thank you for arranging the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and went out and about every day walking and sightseeing. We always had a good time and saw some wonderful things but every day we were happy to return to our favourite place, Lucca. You live in a truly beautiful, friendly, relaxing and enchanting city. All your properties are excellent and Casa Opera is our favourite. regards James + Elizabeth

Needs cleaning!

  • 3 of 5

The photos don't show what the apartment looks like now. It's very dirty. The sofa, chairs and dining chairs are in need of cleaning as do the dirty floors! The smaller bath has a constant sewer smell.

The location of the apartment is convenient to dining and shopping.

The apartment is located in the aquare where it takes place the antique market and also where it is located the famous church where every afternoon it takes place the Puccini arias concert.

The apartment is also located nextdoor to the theatre 'teatro del giglio' and the square piazza napoleone where the summer festival takes place. The apartment is located very close to the train station of lucca, in less than 5 mins walking.

In 1 mins walking from the apartment there is a bike rental shop, bakeries, groceries and so on.

The apartments are located in a very quiet square where there are no clubs and shops, so it makes it very very quiet.

The church bells do not work, so it is quiet!
