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

Live like a local at a great price

  • 4 of 5

I absolutely LOVED this little apartment and its location in the gorgeous Lucca. It has real charm and personality and the details - beamed ceilings, cool art, beautiful views and absolutely worth it. Also, the location is excellent - within the walls but on its own less populated and charming piazza. The owner could do a bit more to make it a little more comfortable - like fans for instance. I get that A/C is not as prevalent as in the US - but we were so hot (visiting in July and there is only one AC in the living room) that we went out and bought a fan for the master bedroom. Another fan or two would make a world of difference. A few other tiny upgrades, (maybe a little de-cluttering, get rid of the plastic tablecloth, give an extra roll of toilet paper), etc would step it up a notch - but for the price - it was a great value in the things that matter. Sonia was very helpful and certainly all the transactions went completely smoothly. I did absolutely feel at home and very local.

Enjoyable holiday

  • 4 of 5

Well positioned apartment, within the walls, but with easy reach of underground parking. Easy walking to station and the rest of Lucca, but away from the main tourist crowds. We enjoyed the Puccini concerts given in the church of San Giovanni. Great views over the rooftops to the various towers and the mountains beyond

A wonderful august trip to Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautifully appointed apartment for a week in August 2016. We were so impressed with the apartment and the attention to detail. The photos do NOT do this rental justice. It is in fact, so much nicer if you can believe that. Ms. Sonia was amazing. So prompt and effiicent and knowledgeable. After giving us an orientation of the apartment and the amazing town of Lucca, Ms. Sonia left us to enjoy the apartment with complete privacy yet we knew she was just a phone call away. I could go on and on but let me just say that the location was perfect. Close to everything. A five to ten minute walk to the train station if you wished a day trip somewhere. Bike rentals seconds away. The kitchen fully equipped. The bathroom fixtures were very high quality, never a problem with water pressure which often can be an issue there. Thank you sincerely Ms. Sonia for an unforgettable week at Casa San Francesco.

Very Grateful Lynn and John, your guests in August 2016

Just lovely!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Sonya's property. Great location and the views were wonderful from all windows. Sonya met us and showed us around and there were plenty of books and leaflets to read about what was on in Lucca and the surrounding area in the apartment.

The apartment is very well equipped and staying for 7 nights was really lovely. We felt very much at home for the whole time and the character of the place gave a wonderful atmosphere. We have stayed in Lucca many times and would love to stay here again.

We hired bikes from the bike hire shop 3 doors away for most of the week and so felt like 'locals'!

Thank you to Sonya

Kind regards,

Christopher and Susanna.
