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 2017

the secrets of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

To explore "the secrets of Lucca" during the three wintery weeks of February 2018, one cannot imagine a more splendid place than the apartment La Casina owned and managed by Sonia. The beautiful apartment was furnished with style and offered comfort in every way. Sonia and her husband were very helpful and nice. The apartment gave us the feeling that we really lived in Luc-ca, and were inhabitants there. The view over the magnificent manicured garden opened a most splendid view with a room - and the apartment itself was more than a room with a view! Thanks for Italian hospitality - and waiting to come back next year.

The most stunning property I've seen in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was brilliant! The location was perfect for us, with a private antique garden for our exclusive use, very peaceful. This is the most stunning property I have ever seen in 15 years and the price that they rent it for is extremely convenient for what you get. The whole apartment is decorated to a high standard in a very tasteful way showing the artistic flair of the owner. The bath tub was great for relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing. Lucca Apartments and Villas is a great agency to rent from and Mrs Sonia gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived and were very happy to help with any questions we had, they even oranges bicycles for us, although we didn't use them much. We met the owner during our stay when he came to bring us a bottle of his own made wine: we felt very welcome. The apartment is decorated to a very high standard and was equipped with everything we needed during our stay. Would definitely recommend this place!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

La Casina is an absolutely beautiful space in the heart of Lucca. The apartment and garden space are excellent and it is obvious that a huge amount of thought has gone into every detail. Mrs Sonia and the team are very welcoming and full of local knowledge that they are happy to share. Our entire experience in Lucca was fantastic!

Mrs Sonia's La Casina in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Dear Mrs Sonia & family,

We arrived home earlier today following a wonderful stay at La Casina. Your hospitality and welcome was wonderful and we would like to thank you and your family for helping to make our stay in beautiful Lucca so special.

La Casina is a fabulous place to stay, the facilities and location ensured that we were able to make the very best of our seven days in Tuscany and I am sure we will return in the future.

I would also like to thank you for your wonderful gift which will ensure I continue to ensure the Italian sunshine through the cold winter in the UK.

Grazie Mille

Nancy & Chris

surprising la casina in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Allan and I are back home and I just wanted to write to thank you for everything. We loved the place and it was very much our style — If I lived in Lucca I would want to live in a place just like that! Thank you also for telling me about the porcini salad in the Garfagnana. We went to a very small place in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana and ate at a large table with locals and other visitors. They just kept bringing food - local cheeses, vegetables, meats - all delicious - and then the woman serving us came up to me and said: ‘possibility d’insalata con porcini’ . I said yes right away knowing that it would be just as you described: fresh porcini mushrooms, sliced with a bit of oil — and that’s exactly what it was. Truly special! We also ate very well at Da Francesco. The food was delicious and the owner is cara and couldn’t do enough to please us. I have never tasted rabbit like the grey rabbit she served us. We went to some of the take out places you recommended too and we ate very well.

If ever we are lucky to travel to Lucca again, I will contact you!

Lovers. Of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Perfect apartment for a memorable and relaxing holiday! Sonia was very informative and helpful during our booking, prior to our visit and during our stay, great host. The staff of Lucca apartments and Villas (including Cristina our hired chef) are extremely friendly, they gave us such a warm welcome when we arrived and were fantastic throughout our trip, they really added to the experience and made us feel at home. The apartment was absolutely beautiful, exactly like the photos that made us fall in love with the place. Very nicely decorated and very clean...and the tub was perfect for relaxing in during the evenings and generally recharging our batteries! The location is great, beautiful architecture and original farmhouse features but inside the old town of Lucca, next to a beautiful cathedral and very close to the La Buca restaurant which was lovely. We loved being outside in our own garden and getting a feel for the more genuine Italian way of life, including making use of the mineral water at the fountain along the street, gorgeous! In general we had a terrific few days, the apartment was very comfortable and homely. We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful taste of Italy and would love to visit again!
