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

beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are an accurate depiction of the apartment. A fully equipped and stylish

one bedroom and one bath is rare in Lucca. Very spacious living area with a comfortable couch. The couch was perfect to sleep on at night while watching TV. All necessary touches to make you feel at home.

The apartment is inside the walls of Lucca in a residential and quiet area where schools are close by, just 2 blocks from the main plaza. Plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and shopping within a short walk. Plenty of coffee bars to choose from. outdoor market is on the corner. The bus stop and train station are close by. A convenient parking garage is 1 block away.

The owners were an absolute pleasure to work with. Very responsive via email. They offered plenty of advice to make our stay one to remember.

Delightful stay and customer care

  • 5 of 5

My mother, teenage daughter and I stayed in this apartment for 10 days in November of 2016. Before the trip, I spent a great deal of time on this website, searching for the perfect apartment for our needs (three generations traveling together without a car) in Lucca. Giustina apartment was definitely the right choice for us! The photos accurately show the details of the apartment; it is aesthetically beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable for ideally 1-3 people (or a couple with two small children). Four adults might be a bit crowded with the bathroom, but the living room does close off from the bedroom, creating privacy for anyone sleeping on the comfortable sofa bed. An added bonus, not shown in the photos, is the large bedroom closet and laundry facilities, making this apartment fully functional for a long-term stay. We did not have a car and planned to travel by train for day trips. The train station is a 10 minute walk from the apartment and this worked perfectly. Most restaurants, shops and sites are within a reasonable walk from the apartment (and my mother is 70 years old). There is a wonderful bakery, bike rental shop, coffee, gelato, and small market within a block of the apartment. Of course, the walls for walking or biking around the city are just outside your living room window. Sonia met us at the apartment and went over the details of how everything worked. We found her to be very responsive before and during the trip in terms of answering our questions. We loved our stay, and could definitely come back to this apartment for an even longer stay.

Good Location, Questionable Business Practices

  • 3 of 5

The location of this apartment could not be better. However, while the apartment appears updated, the building itself is quite drab. And we were warned that we could use only one appliance at a time or risk the breaker tripping. But most concerning is that days before our departure Mrs. Sonia informed us that we would need to pay a booking fee, in cash, upon arrival (though we were paid in full). Clearly she was trying to recoup the service charge from Home Away. I notified Home Away who suggested I lodge a complaint -- I thought that was exactly what I was doing! She also indicated that if we arrived after 6:30 p.m. there would be a 25 Euro additional charge -- also not revealed in any earlier communication nor on the website. For these reasons, I would not do business with Mrs. Sonia again. Lucca is wonderful! Definitely a great city to spend a week or so.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just right for our lovely stay in Lucca. It was an easy walk to everywhere from the apartment (the train station was a very easy walk, and then the wall with the beautiful park was really steps away). The apartment was furnished with everything we needed, including kitchen items for cooking. The apartment owner was helpful, and it was very easy to arrange to meet to get and return the keys. I would highly recommend this for your stay in Lucca!

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.
