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 1786

Most wonderful placed I've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends had the most wonderful vacation together during all of October 2015. I've only now realized we provided no review and feel badly for it because it was truly the most wonderful vacation we've ever spent together. The home is beautiful and the owners are extraordinarily nice. What a privilege it was to stay there and meet you all. The wine tasting/vineyard tour put every other tasting I've ever had to shame. The location required a car but was ideally located for day trips all over Tuscany. I'll be returning to Milan Italy this year to stay with friends but will make the effort to return to Villa Maionchi to enjoy another tasting and to purchase more wine and order your amazing olive oil. I swear it's liquid gold in a bottle! Enthusiastic thanks and best wishes to the Maionchi family.

Spray the areas where mosy's breed.clean up the wifi area,have some information on the history of the villa,local walks and maps.this would be a small cost and would your stay even better.Terence Hall with Lucy Jarman-Hall.

Among the vineyards

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about my stay... I travelled there in early november 2015 with 6 couples and we had a perfect week at the villa, my only regret is that we didn't stay for two weeks. We had a pizza party in the wood-burning oven out back and all of us felt that this was our favorite night of the trip. It was a great homebase and we did day trips to Florence, Lucca and Cinque Terrre. Mrs Cristina cooked our welcome dinner at the villa on the day of our arrival and since it was warm we have an unforgettable dinner on the terraced garden overlooking the vineyards around the villa with the sun hiding over the infinity. Staying around the villa was wonderful too; just exploring the little towns and beautiful countryside. I have many fond memories. I can't wait to get back!

A peaceful location with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Seven couples and I rented Villa Maionchi for 2 weeks in the fall of 2015. It was a wonderful place, large enough for all of us to feel very comfortable--lots of space, plenty of privacy but with many places in which to spend time together. The covered patio outside the kitchen was a favorite spot. We also spent many hours around the big antique table in the kitchen, not only eating but reconnecting as a family--we live in 4 different states. The property around the villa is great for relaxing, hiking or just taking in the view. The pool is beautiful and situated outside the kitchen while the front garden is overlooking a vast valley and shares the same view as most of the villa windows--vineyards and olive orchards dotting the hill sides. You can see for miles, the morning mist hangs above the valley floor before the sun burns it away. It is so quiet that you can hear roosters crow all over the valley and not just at dawn! Sonia greeted us with fresh olive oil, wine, pastries, local bread and cheese that we asked her to buy for us. She arranged a cooking class (highly recommended) for us at the villa and found a photographer to help document our Italian adventure. She was always available when we had a question. The villa is located in a spot that is convenient for sightseeing; not far from the sea, close to Lucca and an easy drive to Florence, Pisa, the mountains, Cinque Terra and many small villages. We enjoyed Lucca and spent several afternoons exploring the shops, restaurants and talking to the local people. The villa kitchen is very well equipped and we had a lot of fun cooking several meals together. We planned to make a day trip to Florence but decided to just spend that time enjoying the countryside and the villa. I would return to Villa Maionchi every year if I could but I definitely plan to make another visit in the next couple of years. It's a wonderful, peaceful place to spend time with family and friends. I absolutely love it!

Magical Villa Maionchi

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, this was by far the most perfect vacation anyone could ever imagine. Our group of 14 did not have one moment at Villa Maionchi that was less than magical. Upon entering the Villa itself, it was as if we were walking into a fairytale. And the view - out of every window, from the garden, from the pool - continues to be a part of my dreams. I had been to Italy several times, always as part of a tour group. I had never visited another country without someone else taking care of the details, and it was a bit daunting. Sonia calmed our fears, always responded to my emails filled with unending questions, and provided all of the information that we would ever need. The location is exquisite, and our host was above and beyond our expectations. You simply cannot find a more perfect place for mental and spiritual renewal.
