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 2016

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was even better than expected. The location is great. The views form the 3 balconies gives you a fabulous 360 degree view of Lucca and the surrounding mountains. Everything worked wonderfully, and having a private elevator was just the cherry on top! Thank you Sonia for sharing this beautiful apartment with us!

The View

  • 5 of 5

This is the sort of place other tourists take pictures of. The terrace is worth it all, views from as high as it gets there, but the rest of the apartment is wonderful too! So convenient to have a clothes washer, since we stayed a week, and there is ample AC for warm days. Everything was in good working order, clean, good natural light, big bed, lots of pillows and storage, very nice kitchen. But, oh, those views from the terrace! Absolutely the best. Sonia was there to greet us and to help us with any issue we may have had. Very nice folks, so nice to us. Sonia and Lucca, GRAZIE!

Enjoyed it!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, spacious and comfortable for four ladies traveling together. The terraces provided lovely views of sunrises and sunsets as well as a view of lovely Lucca. My only suggestion is to provide an extra key to the lift since often we wished to go separate ways returning at different times.

In addition, the location of the apartment is perfect and convenient to the sites, restaurants, and for shopping.

A Very Special Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Right in the middle of Lucca just off the main square this amazing apartment was spacious, clean, well decorated and had everything that we needed. A massive added bonus was its lovely terrace/balcony that extended the length of the apartment and is accessed through both the living and master bedroom areas. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

Excellent location, spacious, lovely decor

  • 5 of 5

Right in the heart of Lucca, truly just steps away from San Michele in Foro and close to everything else. Easy 15-minute walk to the train station. We ate a few meals on the lovely terrace and some in the kitchen. There are stairs from the ground floor to the elevator and from the elevator to the apartment, so note this if you or others are not able to manage stairs. Mrs Sonia was welcoming and very patient with our slightly delayed arrival due to the lack of taxis at the train station.

The apartment was clean and well appointed though it could use some more microwave-safe dishware. The bedrooms are large and comfortable; however, only the master bedroom has closets. Its bathroom is quite large and has a spacious modern shower (no tub). The 2nd bathroom is much smaller and is also on the main floor of the apartment, while the 2nd bedroom is upstairs. This arrangement worked fine for the 2 of us.

There is a helpful binder in the apartment with instructions, food & sightseeing recommendations, and details on refuse disposal & recycling (which is somewhat complicated). The wifi worked very well during our entire stay, and there are plenty of electrical outlets throughout.
