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

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!

Under the tuscan sun!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the Villa in September 2015 and I still can't believe the vivid memories of the house, flowers, the pool and the wonderful people in the surrounding town of Lucca. I can actually say to friends that I cooked an Italian meal in Tuscany. We visited Florence and Pisa during the day and then came back to this beautiful place in the evening. We watched the movie Under the Tuscan Sun while visiting and then looked around and it was not a movie it was real. We would recommend the experience to anyone

5* Dream

  • 5 of 5

The anticipation grew palpably as our car climbed the charming country road to the villa. My eyes widened gleefully as we turned into the driveway, past the olive grove. My first sight of this special place was through my lowered car window. The first sound was from already arrived family members, ecstatically greeting us, almost shouting with wonder at the perfection of our villa choice. Thus began a two-week stay at Villa Aquliea. The service is first class, the villa is spectacular.At each discovery of an new amenity, we were amazed at magazine-like beauty, almost too good to be really, really real. The gazebo at the infinity pool, the warm and nurturing kitchen, the walk to the top of the hill, the villages nestled into the hillside, the friendly people, and the spectacular views, fading miles into infinity. My mind is replete with lavender colored wisteria, draping the outdoor dining area. Local wine quenching eager thirst, mountain top Tuscan vistas beckoning from any open window,any where in the villa. My delighted family expressing their awe at the entire experience that is Villa Querciabella: laughing, Joyful people, luscious landscapes, love, food, wine and overpowering memories of Tuscany. A special part of my heart resides there, awaiting my return.- Jane Raleigh NC, guest 20012, 2014 and 2015

the second time with the same host surpassed all

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous! Thank you so much for a wonderful week!!! Villa Querciabella surpassed our expectations--what a beautiful villa set in an unbelievable Tuscan countryside with plenty of room for 8 people (4 couples). Everyone had their own bedroom with exclusive view. We will never forget the wonderful hospitality shown to us by Sonia and her family. Everything was perfect. Upon arrival we were treated to a scruptuous (and very bountiful) meal prepared by our hosts. We booked a pizza party and cooking class where we prepared the entire meal from scratch in Sonia’s tuscan kitchen--so much fun! We were treated often to Sonia's homemade treats. Any questions are help needed were taken care of quickly by our hosts. We shall never have another vacation that will be better than this one! This was our second rental with Sonia and she surpassed all our expectations. We are so happy.
