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 2013

Well suited for a stay in Lucca

  • 4 of 5

This property was well suited for a brief stay in Lucca. The manager provided a complete overview of things to do and places to eat (or get grocery or specialty food items). The 1st floor apartment is secure with essentially its own private elevator which requires the front door key. The air conditioning was excellent and essential for hot mid-summer days.

A home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment we felt is was a home away from away. It was in an excellent location. A few minutes walk from Piazza Napoleone and the shops. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was stylishly decorated and it felt homely. We rented the apartment for a month and we were sad to leave. We would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Lucca apartment five stars review

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect! Loved the decor, the location and it had everything you would need to feel right at home. We stayed there while visiting out daughter who was studying in Lucca and it was the perfect place for her to come and stay with us. I didn't want to leave. And Sonia and her staff were so accommodating and helpful. Bikes were provided and a great ground floor terrace to enjoy our meals and chill out. It was a wonderful stay

WHAT A GREAT APARTMENT!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, had stayed there for a week. Definitely enjoyed it very much. Conveniently located property, in the very centre of the town but so close to parking and train station, 2 mins walking distance to most of the important locations, very lovely property owner. The outdoor was superb and incredibly large, perfect for dinner or to relax outside with a bottle of wine or a book. Comfortable apartment with all the amenities. Will definitely come back again. Thanks for everything, we had wonderful time. Janice

Luxury apartment with patio in central Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Very nice Lucca apartment for two or four people. This garden apartment has a nice patio and good kitchen space. The neighborhood is very upscale and safe. Closest access to the train is a 5 minute walk.

Closest grocery store is Maria on Corso Garibaldi. It's a small tipical shop, with a very nice grocery store in the back end.

At first glance there doesn't appear to be too many restaurants as the street is very quiet and has several antique shops, but a little exploration proved otherwise. We ate at Al Corso, Lelemento, Buca di S. Antonio, Giglio and we had a fabulous pizza at Skianto. All of these restaurants were excellent and located within a 5 minutes walk.

Don't forget to have a drink at the Caffè delle Mura, which is located in the next block to the south of the apartment, in the antique building facing the gardens. Very comfortable and charming bar and restaurant.

Used the recommended car service and recommend it. Very prompt and very helpful. Really takes the stress out of travel.

As usual Sonia’s rental company gets top grades in my book. I've used Sonia for other trips to Lucca and I have recommended to my friends who have rented from her as well. Great service and are very responsive to all our needs

quiet and peaceful apartment in cental Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my daughter and I loved our stay at the Cittadella apartment in Lucca, it was perfect for 3 of us and was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We had 2 full bathrooms which was great. Our greeter was very helpful and immediately responded to any requests we had. We didn't really use the outdoor, but having it there added so much to the apartment as we could keep the door open and catch a breeze and look at greenery. The flat is located in the back of the building with the result that it is very quiet and peaceful - nice after a long day touring around Lucca. It is in within easy walking distance of the train station, many delicious restaurants, and buses and shops. We definitely recommend staying there. Cynthia
