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

Location is best feature. On a quiet street away from busy and noisy areas but near everything.

  • 3 of 5

As I said superb location. Nice and quiet, mostly residential, very secure. Well equipped in terms of cooking and dining. Don't expect microwave but has electric kettle. WiFi signal is very good. Excellent shower and hot water. Air con great in living area but limited reach into bedroom. Rooms are much smaller than photos imply. Beautiful courtyard garden but it belongs to a neighbour so no access, mosquitoes are a problem, don't open bathroom window as the net has a hole. Only 2 bathtowels and 1 handtowel provided and one set of sheets - not enough for an 11 night stay. The mattress and pillows don't have any protectors and the pillows were stained. The sofa also needs a clean or covers could be changed to something more practical. Try Osteria Miranda for a meal.. really special. Ostello Fredrica has a nice garden if you want a beer in the Sun. Polli bike hire people are really helpful and an old Lucca family business. Buy train tickets day before or allow plenty time as office is sometimes shut and ticket machines are busy. Take plenty mozzie protection!

Quiet neighborhood great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this one bedroom apartment. We were on a very quiet street but we were just minutes away from everything. We were glad we stayed within the walls because the city changes when the tour buses leave. We would absolutely stay here again!

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

Ground floor, Via Santa Giustina, great shower, perfect size, eight days. We loved our stay in Lucca. The location was excellent for nearby restaurants, cappuchino, shops, and easy access to everything else. We enjoyed every walk through town as we explored this lovely corner of the world. I would return again if possible.

A building Full of History

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and ideal for a couple, with high ceilings and it is tastefully decorated. The kitchen has lots of pots, pans and utensils. We had to learn to use the little coffeemakers (one that makes espresson by the cup using those little cups, another that makes about 2 cups of espresso on the stove), by the way an American coffee maker was peovided by Sonia, our kind host in Lucca. The location is great, you can be anywhere within about 3 minutes. Parking close to the building is convenient, but there's a free lot that's about a 5-10 minute walk away. We loved Sonia, who was very responsive and a very nice person. We really liked Lucca - a beautiful city and very easy to navigate. We hope to return one day, and if we do we'd stay at this apartment again.

another unforgettable trip to Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. It is located in a very convenient part of Lucca, away from the mobs, but close enough to the museums and churches to make it an easy walk to the major sights. It’s about a 2 minute walk to the Duomo a convenient parking and about a five minute walk to the train and bus stations. There are ATMs and an internet location just around the corner from the apartment. The neighborhood is VERY safe. There is a friendly and helpful lovely market close by. The street has several small grocery stores and other shops. My favorite was literally at the bottom of the street. Fresh fruit, vegetables, pastries, bread, local wines, meats and some prepared food were all available within a one-block radius. Some of the merchants speak a little English, and some don’t, so it’s a great opportunity to practice your Italian. We greatly appreciated the window with view over the garden.

We had incredible unforgettable and relaxing time in Lucca and we loved having our nest after our shopping and strolls in the town. Many thanks to the owners for the suggestions and all their help! We will definitely be back soon!

we will look for Sonia next time we come to Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Superb! Great location for us, fine restaurant right next door and food shopping nearby, well equipped, furnished and well-designed suite. Immaculately clean. Air conditioned (and that was needed because the temperature rose to 38 degrees most days we were there!) A friend joined us for several days, so the accommodation was perfect. Clothes dryer was appreciated. Wonderful living room with a table, four chairs and a small but fully equipped kitchen. The late-arrival welcome basket with a few staples to help with a first breakfast have been appreciated very much. Sonia is a wonderful host.

We have been in Lucca before, but I strongly suspect that we will look to Sonia and her team next time.
