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 2012

Smart central apartment inside the walls of Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We spent a really enjoyable nine days in Lucca at this ideally located apartment. Surpassed all our expectations - well equipped, tastefully furnished and decorated, and in a marvellous spot. We'd certainly recommend it and would definitely stay there again when (rather than if! We are now returning to Lucca more than twice a year) we return to Lucca. Organisation with owner was really smooth. We love Sonia. A great apartment in a really wonderful city! Carla

stunning apartment in a brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week this past month and had a fabulous time. The apartment had everything we needed. While we didn't cook or eat in during our stay we utilized the coffee press every morning before setting out for the day. The apartment was centrally located right in the heart of the old walled town of Lucca and close to dozens of restaurants and cafes. The listing photos were accurate and the unit was spotless. Ms. Sonia was great and very helpful. She had to wait for us to find the apartment since we kept getting lost in the rain on a Friday evening. I would highly recommend this property for a vacation and plan to go back in the future.

Perfect!

Sonia was lovely as was the apartment. Perfect for 2, comfortable big bed, spotlessly clean & close to everything in Lucca. We stayed here for 10 nights and couldn't have picked a nicer place. I would absolutely recommend. Thank you.

We would thoroughly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in this apartment and it is super. Everything you could want and such a lovely place to be, so convenient for the train station, museums, shopping, groceries, eating out....... The flat is immaculate and tastefully decorated but also extremely practical despite us having a three year old boy.. Bathroom is nice and gorgeous. The owners are so helpful and have really put a lot of thought into the flat. I am running out of superlatives, suffice to say that we loved it and if we are ever back in Lucca we would definately stay there again.

a smart and well appointed place

  • 5 of 5

Dear Mrs S., your lovely apartment suited our needs perfectly. The apartment is nicely laid out, well-furnished and, if anything, perhaps too comfortable; we were at times reluctant to leave. Our stay was wonderful, we visited every corner of this beautiful town and also had daily trips to Florence and Pisa as well as Cinque Terre since your apartment is so close to bus and train stations. Thanks for your tips about restaurants and places to visit, we enjoyed very much. After staying in your apartment I learned why people in Lucca and even here speak so well about you. Your properties are worth a 5 star rate. We look forward to returning either at this apartment or one of your other nice places. Cheers! Alicia+Howard

Second visit to this apartment, and I will return

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location near the bus station and a short walk to the wall or a 10 minute walk from the train station. Comfortable, clean , quiet and safe. Mrs Sonia was very helpful and met me on time at the apartment as we had arranged in advance. The apartment is bright and in excellent working condition. I will return again. Thanks Mrs Sonia for another lovely stay
