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 2010

We have stayed throughout Tuscany and found Lucca to be our favorite location. This apartment, Boccherini Casa, was appointed perfectly. Right down to the color of trash bags needed. The outdoor area was great. One early evening, we listened to harp music from the music institute. Many afternoons we had cello, violen music. Having a washer was very helpful. There is a great lending English book section. We left books and took a few. This was greatly appreciated. Since we were on a one month driving trip of northern Italy, parking our car in the free lot outside the walls and being picked up was perfect and timely. The driver was the nicest man we met in Italy. Don't run away from Lucca. Enjoy the city, find your perfect pasta, meat, cheese, pastry shops. Gather your food and come "home" to make your perfect meal/evening. This was a highlight of our trip. If/when we go back to Italy, we will certainly entertain Lucca and this rental agency.
Fantastic property and what an entrance hall! It was great to be in the heart of the city with everything on our doorstep and a garden in which to chill with a good book and a glass of wine and enjoy the music from the music school. It all made for a very enjoyable and relaxing week. Sonia looked after all the arrangements brilliantly as ever and we look forward to bringing the family with us next year.
Sonia, thank you so much for the wonderful accommodation in Lucca, it was fabulous. My family (of four) enjoyed so much discovering your amazing town. You made a wonderful home and and we had a even more special stay. When you come to the United States please make certain to find us in Milwaukee, WI. We would love you have you stay with us! Thank you very much for the deepest of our heart!
The apartment was just like the photos. It is in a great location and the garden is lovely. We stayed for two weeks and had a fabulous vacation in Lucca... what a lovely town it is!
My family and I stayed at the apartment in June 2016. The place could not been better, easy to get to, welcoming and at the same time private. The price that we paied was unbeatable considering the size of the apartment, the outdoor area and the location. Well catered for all our holiday needs. Would recommend the apartment and Lucca to anyone. Sonia was very accommodating. Worth giving a go!
The apartment is well located, being only a short walk to the railway station, supermarket and all the central attractions. However, accommodation was disappointing; it was clean and reasonably well-equipped but was gloomy and lacked any touches to make you feel welcome.
