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 villa in 2012

rent from Mrs Sonia for the best properties!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated out 30th anniversary (Oct. 15) with family & friends at Villa Querciabella. Upon arrival, Oct. 13) we were greeted w/drinks, appetizers and a wonderful tuscan dinner. The villa is something out of a story book---attention to detail in every room! Mrs Sonia surprised us w/homemade pastries, cakes and ice cream! Of course, there was plenty of wine! While we were there, we had a pizza party and a chef came in to teach us how to cook a tuscan meal! Never had so much fun in my life---we laughed and sang while preparing our meals! On our last day, Mrs Sonia and family came with a home made cake for us! The next morning we left very early and Mrs Sonia was there to send us off! Of course, we all had tears in our eyes when saying good-by! Such a beautiful family and memories we'll never forget! This experience will be remembered the rest of our lives! This was our second time renting from Sonia and it won’t be the last. Maureen

Lovely home but needed refurbishment

  • 3 of 5

Lovely location. Property was in a very quiet village. We thought that the kitchen & bathrooms were dated & needed upgrading. The particulars when we booked said there was a microwave & toaster but neither were in the kitchen during our stay. The cabinets around the cooker & dishwasher kept falling off. The towels & bed linen needed renewing as very tired & worn. The pool area however was delightful definitely the best part of our stay.

charming homey retreat with fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute spent there. The villa is setted amongst the olive groves and lot of greenery. The little village with restaurants (one on a bridge!) and the grocery of mr Alesandro was great. We found fresh local cheeses, ham and fuit there. Amazing.

Our host was fabulous and the villa was very charming. The pool was perfect. We had an unforgettable 2 weeks. THANKS

the best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

The best holiday ever!! We absolutely loved everything about Villa. A good time was had by all. Sonia recommendation of the Villa for our 2 families- 6 adults and 2 teenagers worked out beautifully. Sonia was very helpful and always available to answer any questions every step of the way. Cristina both talented chef and caretaker, was very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of things to do. The Villa was set among the beautiful gardens, olive trees and oak trees. There was plenty of space for all to separate, roam, relax and have quiet time. At the same time it was wonderful for us all to gather in the spectacular old kitchen to cook and then share the meal on the lovely grand terrace in the garden.. We felt like living in the past with the old potteries and cutleries, the antique chairs and furniture, a very shabby atmosphere! We thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the private pool and walking down to the village for gelato. The add on activities were amazing which included Pisa, Cinque Terra, and a Truffle tour. The highlights were the Personal Chef Dinner and the Cooking Class that Sonia arrange for us. Chef Cristina is awesome cook! We loved the short drive to the charming city of Lucca and spending time shopping and strolling along the narrow streets. villa querciabella is truly a beautiful and peaceful place among the hills. Thank you Sonia for everything. We will treasure the memories forever! Dreaming of our next trip back to the countryside.

The pictures on here do not do this place justice

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on here do not do this place justice- I was fortunate to be able to stay in the villa in Late September - absolutely fell in love with Lucca- especially this property. To be honest, I was reluctant to post a comment, as I am hoping to go back and stay here again. (And not have the issue of finding it unavailable!) The proximity to all that Lucca and Tuscany has to offer, was magnificent. I think I would not be able to see everything in a month, there is so very much- and ALL within short distance. WOW. We were able to walk to an excellent market, and found wonderful restaurants (and a fruit stand) down in the village. ***** Loved it here!
