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

Stunning retreat right in the heart of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

The property cannot be faulted and this applies not only to the quality of the internal furnishings but also to the beautiful historic garden that can be enjoyed exclusively by the guests.

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many lovely apartments in Lucca by Mrs Sonia and this is definitely one of the best. It is absolutely beautiful and the garden is immaculately kept. We met the owner who is very thoughtful and kind. It was a pleasure to meet and speak with him and receive the gift he brought us. A very professional service was offered by both Mrs Sonia and the property owner. We cannot wait to return.

An idyllic retreat perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

La Casina was even better than we had hoped: an exquisitely furnished, completely updated and thoroughly comfortable interior embedded in a spacious, private and equally well-designed courtyard garden, with two bicycles and a very convenient location to boot. After a month of touring, we needed a luxurious retreat, and Mrs. Sonia provided it in full. Lucca is a wonderful city in and of itself, but also offers easy access to a diverse and interesting surrounding region. We found all of Mrs. Sonia’s recommendations for restaurants, activities and day trips to be right on the mark. Count us as completely satisfied visitors who left ready to return.
