great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Lucca. We arrived later than anticipated with 3 exhausted kids on NYE and a delicious meal was cooked and waiting for us. (prearranged with Sonia). Sonia met us to hand over the keys (again very late on NYE) and I was so impressed with the notebook about the house and town she had put together. She missed no details and we felt very welcomed and comfortable. The apartment is set in a great location easy to access from the carpark and close to a coffee shop for the mornings. The only (very minor) issue was the house details online stated there was a tumble dryer and there wasn't. Her entire team was excellent as we went on a lovely wine private tour to a local winery and even got an in-home cooking class. Thanks so much for a really great week in Lucca!!

Lovely Apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this apartment in Lucca. The location was good (close to the city walls and one of the main streets within the city) and the apartment met our expectations. It was very nice to have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a lovely private terrace (although the weather was a bit chilly). The main improvement would have been for the apartment heat to have been turned on earlier that day as we were very cold the first night (the heat was only turned up when we arrived). The appliances were also a bit difficult to figure out, so it would have been helpful to have clear instructions in English (I only found the manuals on the last day), but otherwise Mrs. Sonia provided a whole booklet of information and suggestions for our stay, which was a nice bonus.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kate for your kind review! The manuals are kept in the drawer of the kitchen so all the appliances can be used easily. Me and our staff of the agency Lucca Apartments and Villas were extremely happy to meet you! See you soon again in Lucca! Sonia

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in Italy, 4 days of which were spent here. This is a gorgeous, comfortable apartment which has everything you need for a great stay. Mrs Sonia met us on arrival and was very pleasant. The only negative was the maid arriving at 9am on our last day (we had to be leave by 10.45), letting herself in, shouting in Italian and seeing me naked as I ran out of the bedroom thinking the noise was coming from our children having the television too loud!

Exactly what we were hoping for!

  • 3 of 5

Very comfortable apartment for a family of 4, great location and nice layout. We loved our stay and hope to come back one day. Needs a little TLC in places, screen door etc but otherwise in good working order.

Nice apartment, good location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my partner and my elderly parents who enjoyed the apartment immensely.

It was well equipped, comfy and had good air conditioning.

Sonia who came to meet us at the apartment on our arrival was just great - really lovely woman!

Having the bikes was a brilliant asset as it is a great way to get around Lucca and since the apartment is really near the wall we enjoyed cycling the perimeter, which was especially lovely early in the morning.

The accommodation is in a quiet, residential area so we were very conscious of trying not to make too much noise so didn't use the outside space too late at night so as not to disturb the residents in the apartments above us.

All in all it was a wonderful apartment in a brilliant wee city, we would definitely go back there again.

Charming, spacious and clean apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My family (including two boys ages 6 and 9) had a lovely stay in Lucca at this beautiful and secure apartment Casa Clara. Mrs. Sonia was so kind and accommodating, always available to help and inform. The apartment has two well equipped bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a gorgeous living room with beautiful spacious furnished terrace, a fairly spacious kitchen with dishwasher and a washer which was very useful. And even bikes provided and a place to safely park them inside the property. The apartment has many windows. So nice to see the trees and happy park-goers each morning outside the apartment when we started our day of sightseeing. The apartment is located in a very quiet corner of the town which is reachable by car. We used our car to travel around Tuscany so it was quite convenient. We loved the apartment, loved Lucca, and were sad to leave! Thank you Sonia for helping to make our vacation very special.

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
