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 2012

Unfriendly owner

  • 1 of 5

I stayed at this apartment with my family for one week. The location is very good. But the beds were extremely uncomfortable and several appliances were not in proper working order. The owner was brusque and unfriendly when these problems were brought to her attention. I would definitely not stay at this apartment again.

fantastic apartment with unique terrace in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

John and I were delighted with our stay in the Casa Teresa apartment. We will hope to stay there again on our next visit to Lucca. The apartment itself is a fine piece of design and hot water and heating are excellent. The location is really excellent for shopping, sights and frequent public transport. The apartment was very well equipped and very quiet - we did quite a bit of cooking, and the only minor lack we found was the apparent lack of plastic microwave dishes suitable for steaming (that Sonia provided after our request) but there were plenty of good saucepans and the appliances all are excellent. This included the television and the WiFi. The terrace and outlook are very pleasant despite it was winter during our visit. It must be a dream during the hot season! Mrs Sonia was very expeditious and helpful in resolving two minor queries.

Lovely apartment great location!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was charming, comfortable & clean, particularly loved the terrace where we enjoyed a glass of wine or a meal, before or after a day of exploring this beautiful town. Location was perfect, close to the wall so we could walk/ ride morning & afternoon. Nice little neighbourhood with bike hire, cafes etc but also maximum of 15 min walk to anywhere you would need to go. Wifi worked well. Sonia was very quick to respond to our one query which was much appreciated. Highly recommend

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

We were a group of 5 (4 adults and 1 child). The listing was accurate. The property was extremely clean and very well-maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked and the laundry facilities very helpful. The location (inside the walls) was optimum! We loved walking to all the different things to do in Lucca!

Mrs. Sonia was wonderful to work with. She was professional and very helpful in explaining the parking options and the different facets to the apartment. I would rent from her again!

We came to Lucca on our Italy trip and this was the perfect place to stay. It was on the periphery of the city, but in the walls of Lucca everything is only a quick 5 minute walk. The wifi worked very well, the beds were very comfortable, it was incredibly clean, the terrace was amazing, there is a parking lot very close to this location, and Sonia was a delight to work with. This apartment was such a joy to live in for a couple of days!! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Fabulous apartment, centrally located just off CORSO GARIBALDI with restaurants, bistros and shops close by. The apartment is in an old building dating from the 13th/14th century in a very quiet location. The apartment itself is elegant and roomy; very bright despite we were there in December, it has a large sitting room, spacious and amazing bedrooms and windows overlooking the sun and the gorgeous square with its antique Palazzos and Church. The original open arches have been left on the roof. The kitchen is very nice and very well equipped and there is an enormous amount of storage space.

Sonia and her sister are highly professional and offers a splendid service, they arranged a car to collect us from the airport and was there to meet us at the apartment even though it was after 8.00pm when we arrived. They gave us helpful advice about local place to eat and visit.

We cannot praise both the apartment and Sonia highly enough. Lucca is a wonderful city and we will certainly be going back and staying at the Casa Theresa Apartment!

Lucca, beautiful city, famous for its monumental 15th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria, the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany. Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town’s finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes’ walk from the apartment. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes’ walk. In Lucca’s winding streets, the pedestrian comes before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city.
