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.

Relaxing for large family group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed a full week at work he villa with our mother and friend of the family. It was a total of 8 of us but there was more than enough room. Everyone had space the kids had a blast in the pool. The kids were from 5 to 12 years old so the size was just right for them. There was only 3 kids. The pool may have been to small for more kids.

The management company was great and very personal able. The addition cost for both gas and electric was nominal but we did not use the air conditioner as the weather was nice and it was not needed for us. Just open the windows and let the fresh country air come in.

We have rented several villas in Italy and this was a good experience.

The kitchen had all you need to cook. The coffee maker could have been a k-cup to make it easier to have a cup. But we managed. There is also a great bakery close by for the morning cappuccino and sweets. They also offer nice sandwiches for lunch.

Great location for parties and large groups. The house was well appointed with interesting nic-nacks collected over time.

There were two mules (or donkeys) not sure and a horse which was nice to look at while sitting in the sun.

Overall it was a great experience and We would stay again.

exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation in Tuscany over the Easter holidays!! Our love for Tuscany started at the Villa LORENA. The Villa LORENA was an amazing place to stay. It was just what we were looking for to experience the beauty of the country and the lifestyle of the culture. It is located in a quiet area of the Lucca Hills. The property exceeded our expectations. There were endless places inside and outside the home to gather for meals, relaxation and socializing. The home is sprawling, and even with twelve of us, there was still always a place to also experience private moments. The views from this property are spectacular from inside and outside of the home. We explored the beautiful Tuscan cities of Lucca, Florence, and Pisa and also took a day trip to Cinque Terre in the Liguria region. A big thank you to Cristina who met us the first day we arrived and later in the stay provided her services to us with a memorable cooking experience, followed by an amazing supper prepared for the whole family. The greeting and the goodbye were both welcoming, organized and attentive. This home is everything it says it is and more. Thank you so much for an amazing place to stay on a family vacation in Tuscany Cristina, Katrina, Sonia and family.

Fantastic Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to describe what it feels like to arrive at the property, see the house and the view, hear the church bells chime every 30 minutes. Though we had plans to day trip all over the area, we could not resist spending the first day just relaxing, cooking and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere.

The property is very private, with views across a small valley to a village with the church. There are two very cozy outdoor dining areas, and multiple places to sit and just enjoy the sunset, with a glass of wine. Mornings are peaceful as well, with the sun lighting up the village while you drink coffee in the dining room or outside.

All rooms are very clean, and comfortable, with the master having its own outdoor deck facing the same view as the rest of the house. Two bedrooms have en suite baths, one with a full, very large, bathtub.

There are two large dining rooms on either side of the spacious kitchen, each seating 8, but the larger of the two outdoor spaces could accommodate everyone outside, too. The kitchen has everything you would need, except there is no oven. We did not miss it. There IS a brick oven outside in a small patio area, but I would not know how to use it well, anyway.

Unlike other properties listed, this is actually the entire house and all the grounds surrounding it, and is a fantastic value. It has been in Catarina's family for generations (the daughter of the owner we met), and there are family touches throughout the home, making it a very pleasant and intimate stay.

There is a working fireplace in the living room, and yes, an indoor heated pool that is wonderful for soaking after a long day walking Florence (45 minutes East), Lucca (15 minutes west - DO NOT MISS) and Pisa (45 minutes West). An hours train ride will get you to the Cinque Terre, which will be a highlight of any trip, and you can spend days wandering the rest of Tuscany which stretches southward from the area. Despite being so quiet and private, the A11 freeway is 10-15 minutes south, making this villa a great central place from which to explore all of northern Italy. (Rome is still only two hours away, by driving or taking the train, to Florence, then the high speed rail.)

Other notes: Grocery is ten minutes in Pescia, or Lucca. Road to house is unpaved, and may surprise you the first time. Keep going!! :) (You will be met and guided to the house the first time for check in) Say hi to the burros on the property - they love carrots.

What dreams are made of

  • 4 of 5

I had the very good fortune to bring my family to Italy. We chose to stay in Villa Lorena. We had more than enough living space. The house was comfortable and inviting. We had an outdoor brick oven, a gorgeous sunroom with pool and a large kitchen to cook in. Several patios to sit out on and the pleasure of an occasional visit by the family horse and 2 donkey. The master bedroom and patio were absolutely amazing. The view is what we all see in pictures. I will go back again and again!

Gorgeous villa in breathtaking location

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family group of 11 absolutely loved this villa. There were many places, indoor and outdoor, to sit and chat, soak up the sun, enjoy the shade, admire the view or just be quiet. All of the rooms are beautifully finished. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We had a cooking lesson one day which was fun for both the kids and the adults. The herb garden was used to provide most of the seasoning for the meal. Another evening, we used the wood-fired pizza oven to make our own pizzas. We spent one day just hanging around the villa, relaxing and catching our breath. Other days were spent out and about in the area - Lucca, Cararra, Pisa, the Cinque Terre. The view from the villa gardens is breathtaking - olive trees, grape vines, a beautiful valley and village on the far side. Good grocery stores were a short drive away. The small indoor pool was a good place to cool down and relax. The washing machine and outdoor clothes line were useful and appreciated.
