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

Perfect for us, as always

  • 5 of 5

I’m sure this is a repeat of my previous reviews. We have been staying at Casa Janca annually for a number of years now. The pictures are accurate. We especially like that it’s on the ground floor, but elevated just enough that we have privacy & quiet. 2 full bathrooms is a real treat, as is having a washer AND dryer. Sonia is very easy to deal with, speaks very good English, and is full of useful information about Lucca. I hope we can continue to stay here every year.

Beautiful and spacious apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 adults) recently stayed here for a week at the beginning of a two week trip to Italy. We were quite exhausted after our flight and attempt to reach Lucca from Pisa airport and were much later than we had expected, but Sra. Sonia was patiently waiting for us to let us in. The apartment was charming. The location is charming and quiet, near all the attractions of Lucca. There was a flower show there the weekend we were there, which was fascinating to watch being set up, and then all the crowds. We also took easy day-trips to Pisa and Florence while we were there.

We had a great stay, the apartment was great with a well equipped kitchen good dining area and living room. The master bedroom was huge, and the bathroom had a good shower. The second bedroom (sofa bed) was very comfortable with its own full bathroom with excellent shower. It was perfect for the three of us. Great location, charming interiors and decoration, friendly welcome and a beautiful town.
