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 Farmhouse in 2016

Excellent in Everyway
I can't say enough good things about our stay. The house beautiful, the location is perfect, and the owners and managers of the house are extremely responsive. I hope we can make it back soon!
This place is even more beautiful than the photos. The grounds are impeccable, and per-fect for kids to safely run around on or just have a leisurely walk. The villa itself was exa-ctly the Tuscan experience we were looking for - tranquil, has it's own impeccable grounds, beautiful views and near distance to a lovely little village with great restaurants. The kitchen is awesome and fully equipped to cook yourself a Tuscan meal to eat al fre-sco. The caretakers are awesome and so helpful. The road to the villa was easy to mana-ge and we did not have any problem. My entire family loved the place, and dream of co-ming back bringing more people to enjoy it. Highly highly recommend this place.
Beautiful view & quiet
Lovely old villa with panoramic view in a quiet rural location. Wish the owner had mentioned (in the advertisement) that the villa was located on an unmaintained road, which is uphill. The rental cars took quite a beating from overgrown shrubs, loose stones, and ruts. It may not be the owners fault that the road is not maintained; however, the owner should make an honest statement about the road situation prior to payment. Renters should also be aware of undisclosed additional payments for air conditioning and gas for running the indoor pool (as well as olive oil). Lots of bees, be sure to bring the eppipen (viisited in August 2018). Outdoor grill is not maintained and there is no oven inside the house.
Aside from that the villa is as advertised!
Perfect - pretty much sums up our overall experience. First, Sonia and Cristina were easy to work with and they made sure someone was available for any questions that might arise. Cristina provided some good recommendations for local coffee and pastries as well as villages to go to and wineries to try. The Villa is located at the top of a dirt road surrounded by olive trees and grape vines. The Villa itself was comfortably large enough enough for our family of 12. There was plenty of space inside and out to find a quiet spot if you wanted. The house was very clean and comfortable. There were also numerous areas outside to sit or dine in groups. One evening we had Cristina cook for us and all 12 of us ate outside under a pergola. The food she made was amazing! I highly recommend her if you would like a meal at the house.
The location was great and allowed day trips to Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Cinque Terre. Don't miss the village of Monte Carlo which is only 20 minutes away.
Thank you Leo for taking precious time off to share your invaluable feedback with us. It was delightful to leanr that one of the most paramount pillars of our service philosophy, accommodating our guests' needs and enabling their desires was met. I look forward to meet you again in the future! Mrs Sonia and the Lucca Apartments and Villas team
Relaxing for large family group
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.
Thank you very much for your kind review Kimberly! It was a pleasure to host your family, it was so great to spend time with you at the villa! I really hope to be able to meet you again in the future! Sonia and the Lucca Apartments and Villas management team.
exceeded our expectations
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.
It was lovely to meet you! Thank you very much for your kindness, I hope to meet you again soon! Warmly, Sonia
