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 2010

Simple and Stylish apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

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!

Well-located Apartment in Lucca

  • 3 of 5

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.

rare apartment with garden in the centre of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are an accurate depiction of the apartment. Two bedroom and a marvellous garden is rare in Lucca. Very spacious living area with a comfortable couch. The couch was perfect to sleep on at night while watching TV. All necessary touches to make you feel at home.

The apartment is in a residential area where the National Music School is close by (we could hear violins and piano music from the garden, wwe loved it!). Plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and shopping within a short walk. Plenty of coffee bars to choose from. outdoor market is on the corner. The train station and bus stop are close by. We were able to find street parking for our car on all nights except two. A parking garage is a short walk from the apartment. Everything suprassed our expectations! Thank you Mrs Sonia

FULLY FUNCTIONAL HOMEY APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely vacation there and truly hated to leave what a great location and wonderful apartment. It was just like staying in a friend's home. We left Lucca, feeling very happy after our stay.We are planning to return to Lucca again and wish to stay in one of your properties for more than a week. We have enjoyed staying in your apartment and it was a pleasure to meet you. Your guests, Ed and Joanna, Tennessee USA

The apartment is in a good position.

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was well placed in a quiet part of town and was interesting because of its age, but it felt dark and a little labyrinthine and was extremely cold at night (we visited at the end of October). We were told by the owner that heating is illegal before 5th November and, despite piling on extra blankets, we had to sleep wearing socks and extra clothes and we had to postpone taking a shower until later in the day when the apartment warmed up a bit. Although a toaster was listed, we couldn't find it and the kettle didn't work so we had to boil all our water in a saucepan. The beds themselves were comfortable and there was plenty of towels. The furnishing was functional but not well co-ordinated in our opinion. We visited friends who had rented a nearby apartment for virtually the same price form the HomeAway site which was far and away more luxurious and comfortable. Sorry not to have been enthusiastic but we have to give honest feedback.

Lovers. Of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th stay in Lucca each time we have stayed inside the walls in a different apartment each time. Casa Boccherini was by far the best.Sonia met us as arranged and showed us the layout of our home for the next 2wks,which took in the rubbish disposal which she explained in detail.As the reader of this survey you will realise that my wife and myself have falling in love with Lucca and look forward to our 7th visit in 2016 when we will hopefully again be staying in Casa Boccherini with. Sonia
