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 2015

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment for the 2 of us the bedrooms are spacious with plenty of hanging and drawer space,we chose to use the on suite room but both are equally as good as are both shower rooms,the bed was very comfortable and the AC was superb and very quiet

The kitchen very well equipped,plenty of wine and water glasses!

The dining room is lovely but a bit wasted on us as we never used it and the sitting area was OK for us but might be a bit cosy for 4 but we used the balcony most of the time which has seating for 6 + a table as is the norm in Lucca 4 of the chairs are metal and not very comfortable, the out look is very nice

The area is one of the nicest we have stayed in more of a locals place with restaurants,cafes,bakeries and a small grocery store within an easy walk and just a hop from the wall and botanical gardens but still very accessible to the main parts of town

Sonjia is very helpful and charming,we are looking forward to staying again soon

Mostly Good with 1 Caveat

  • 4 of 5

We loved the unit and the location. Also the massuese that was recommended was amazing and she came to us (twice). Overall it was a great place. The only caveat was that the keys that we were given didn't work very well and it was always a struggle to get in. When we mentioned it (immediately) there was never any follow up and it was frustrating for obvious reasons. Other than that-everything else was great.

Charming and immaculate! Location was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples traveling together and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The apartment was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Well equipped with all the appliances we needed and nice updated baths. The outdoor terrace was lovely for sipping prosecco in the evening and enjoying the a cup of coffee in the morning. Easy walking to everywhere within the walls. We just could not have been happier with our stay.

I would make this visit again!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family of four adults traveling in february, and this flat was in just the right location to retreat back to during the cold afternoons to let our feet recover from much exploring. We were within walking distance to everything we wanted to visit while in the city of Lucca. Access to trains to go on day trips outside the shops were also within a short distance. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, along with a well equipped kitchen for cooking in on the occasions we had to try fresh fish and produce from the local groceries. We were also within short walking distances to some highly recommended restaurants in Lucca -- one of which is in the square immediately adjacent to the apartment street. Also the best cappuccino and gelato in Lucca are also available in the same square. The property owners were a delight to work with, and helpful with all sorts of information and helped us to the nearby market. We have rented from Mrs Sonia through her agency called Lucca Apartments and Villas several times and I would make this visit again!
