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

unforgettable trip to Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. It is located in a very convenient part of Lucca, away from the mobs, but close enough to the museums and churches to make it an easy walk to the major sights. It’s about a 2 minute walk to the Main Square and the Main shopping street is just at the corner and about a five minute walk to the train and bus stations. There are ATMs and groceries just around the corner from the apartment. The neighborhood is VERY safe. There is a friendly and helpful lovely market close by. The street has several small grocery stores and other shops. My favorite was literally at the bottom of the street. Fresh fruit, vegetables, pastries, bread, local wines, meats and some prepared food were all available within a one-block radius. Some of the merchants speak a little English, and some don’t, so it’s a great opportunity to practice your Italian. We greatly appreciated the outdoor patio despite it was cold in January but we could sit for a drink during the day, we could have had incredible unforgettable dinners there at night and relaxing rests in late afternoon after our shopping and strolls in the town if we came in spring or summer. Many thanks Sonia for the suggestions and all your help! We will definitely be back soon

Dream location, quiet, into the city centre

  • 5 of 5

Superb! Great location for us, fine restaurant 2 blocks away and food shopping nearby, well equipped, furnished and well-designed suite. Immaculately clean. Air conditioned (and that was needed because the temperature rose to 38 degrees most days we were there!) A friend joined us for several days, so the accommodation was perfect. Elevator was appreciated and we loved it. Wonderful outdoor deck with a table, four chairs and a giant sofa + a couple of lounge chairs. We had a late-arrival welcome basket with a few staples to help with a first breakfast and it was good.

We have been in Lucca before, but I strongly suspect that we will look to Sonia and her team next time.

A Dream Apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Great access to town for cars with Cittadella parking in front of the apartment. Sonia met us upon arrival and she provided all the necessary house and local area information. There is a binder full of great touristic information including historical sites, markets, and restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable, spacious, and clean. The decoration and furnishings are a nice blend of old and new. We enjoyed returning here after a full day of touring. Overall an excellent choice for a stay in Lucca. Hope to return!

The apartment is clean and nicely decorated. Certainly good for 2 adults and 2 children. We were only 2 so size wise it was good.

This is NOT a 2 bedroom apartment. It is a one bedroom apartment with a sofabed in the living room.

The king size bed is SUPER hard. I can say that I rarely slept even when we were super tired from all of the walking. Even the pillows were hard.

There are no toiletries so please come with your own toilet paper. Not even a bar of soap to wash your hands. I know it seems like I am making a big deal but traveling for 10 hours and going to an apartment where these are not provided is not expected.

LUCCA is absolutely amazing!!! everyone is kind and lovely. I would certainly visit LUCCA again. Not sure I would rent this place again

P.S. The owner has several apartments so please keep in mind that some of the reviews on this listing are misleading as they do not apply to all of the places. For example, someone mentioned a balcony... there is not balcony. Overall, the price is right for what you get.

Owner's Response: Yes, as specified online the apartment has 1 bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a double new queen size sofa bed in the living room with its own bathroom. Being a rental apartment there are no toiletries as in hotels, by the way we do provide toilet paper and hand soap in each bathroom as that was provided at your arrival. All the reviews shown they refer to the advertised apartment and not to other properties of mine. I think the review is confusing and not adequate as it reports wrong information! By the way thanks for choosing one of my apartments! Sonia

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.
