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.

an experience to remember
Sonia and Cristina did an outstanding job making our stay at the villa absolutely superb. Time and again, all week long, Isa organized activities == teaching us how to make pizza in a 500-year-old stone oven, taking us up to meet a blacksmith/artisan whose family for-ge had been operating for hundreds of years, and connecting us with a local cook who prepared a fantastic Italian meal. In the evenings, we enjoyed a variety of Italian wines looking out over the countrysude of Lucca and Florence from the patio. The accommoda-tions were first class -- and there was so much to see and do. Our group of four couples found this the best week in over 15 years of annual get togethers.
Sonia, herewith our review and thank you to you and Laura and the owners.
Firstly the villa is beautiful – a real treat to arrive somewhere that looks just as good as the photos. Marco’s father was lovely and very helpful and Laura showed us everything and we were even invited to take brunch at Marco’s patisserie – which we did and it was great.
We had a fab week – as Da Benito was closed we went to a family local pizzeria called Vito Re Della Pizza – very friendly and lovely pizza – we can also recommend it.
We thought Lucca was stunning and very cosmopolitan. We hope to return to your lovely area next year.
Thank you to Marco for being so helpful re the TV also.
A truly special Villa - exceeded our expectations
Book it ! you wont be disappointed - worth every penny . This villa is like a small boutique hotel that you get for yourselves. Everything was spotless, a lovely meet and showaround from Laura and the owner and his family are a genuine Italian family (who own a lovely bakery in nearby town). A great location, small town with 2 restaurants and cafes and small shop. Can highly recommend the Vito re Della Pizzeria - a family owned place - try the nutella pizza for desert. Lucca is beautiful and worth a whole day. We will be back .

Villa Otto is Paradise! Mrs Sonia is amazing!
We returned from the villa 2 days ago and had a great time. Sonia was very helpful as was her son. The villa was spotless and had everything you could possibly need as well as a nice welcome pack which was very helpful as we arrived late on a Saturday night! We had plenty of space for the 6 adults and 2 kids and the complex was very safe for the kids as it was all gated and secure. The villa is situated in a very central location and is in walking distance to everything you need and there is a large supermarket not far from the villa. the TV was great as the kids could watch english programs and there were lots of antique and new books to choose from. The pool was clean and in a charming setting, also not deep which is great for kids - the travel cot and highchair were also a god send!! We had great barbeques aImost every night and we always had dinner on the beautiful terrace facing the pool and the hills all around. The villa itself is a highscale luxury home featuring intriguing interiors and the setting and the garden are IMPRESSIVE, so beautiful. I really enjoyed and would love to go again. Thanks Sonia for all your help :)

Reluctant to leave, we will be back
Well, reality has struck hard... we're totally settled back in to life in USA. It was a hard re-entry, going from carefree bliss at the Villa, to 24/7 activities here. I just got all of my pictures back… and I am working on a scrapbook... Thank you again for everything. It was a trip of a lifetime! We'll be back!
an unforgettable experience
We had wonderful stay in Lucca. The villa and gardens are beautiful and such a peaceful retreat from the busy tourist activities. Our highlights included bicycling in the countryside with a guide and bikes from Chrono, running the half marathon, walking on the old streets, playgrounds with the grandchildren, playing and resting in the private garden, bicycling in Lucca, wine tours, and taking our grandchildren on the merry go round. This luxury villa exceeded our expectations and is very conveniently located.
Thank you Heather, it has been delightul to host you! See you next year! Sonia
