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

Nice accommodations...

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Lucca. The accommodations were comfortable with a great location inside the walls. The train and bus station is just an 8 minute walk away. We used Tau Touring for round trip transportation from Florence to Lucca. Bring your own soap and shampoo as they are not provided. Be sure to review the guest book at the residence for recommendations for restaurants and activities.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It was spotless and had everything that we needed however not having any toilet paper at all in either of the bathrooms was slightly annoying. The handover of the keys was seamless and Mrs Sonia was very efficient. Wonderful location. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

IMPRESSIVE, the best

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at a Luccaapartmentsandvillas very nice accomodations. Nicely appointed and amentities, ie soap, coffee,paper towels, etc. We are very comfortable in Lucca, so we did not need to use the office staff, but its nice to know they are there if needed. I strongly rec'd using their services, its just so easy and they bring you right into apt. So much nicer than a hotel, coffee in your PJ's, a kitchen to make snacks, and the most amazing terrace with a magnificent view! I will def use again.

A peaceful refuge

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is absolutely gorgeous with good views from the terrace and a quiet location close to the city wall and train station. Mrs. Sonia was punctual and professional and she allowed us to stay late on our check out day due to a late flight out of Pisa. Everything was clean and in good working order and there was a good selection of start up supplies including coffee, sugar, olive oil, salt and various spices. A microwave would have been a welcome addition but I can understand it's absence due to the limited kitchen counter space. I would have given 4 1/2 stars if possible, the only drawback being the lack of an elevator especially upon arrival with luggage. I would have no problem rebooking here.

Lovely apartment, good location.

  • 4 of 5

Mrs Sonia,as always was very accommodating and pleasure to deal with. The apartment was very nice, clean well equipped and tastefully decorated with nice terrace.

We have visited Lucca a few times now and will probably do so again in the future. Unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed with this particular booking through this site, due to the fact that one of the main reasons for booking it was that it stipulates in the details that there are bikes with the apartment. It was extremely disappointing to find out on arrival that it does not actually have bikes and as a result of that we had to hire bikes from a local hire shop.

It would be perhaps prudent for homeandaway to ensure property information is correct before advertising to avoid further customer disappointment.

Owner's Response: Dear Roddy, I am so sorry that yu were disappointed with the missing bikes that were stolen to the previous guests of the apartment after they left them along the street without locking them. I assume my staff have called you right at the middle of the stay to ensure that your stay was ok (as we do for all of our guests) and since you did not report that the missing bikes were a disappointments we did not rush to buy them. Not rushing into buying the new ones was a mistake on your side and if we would have known that bikes were so important for you I would have bought them immediately and personally as my guests' satisfaction is my main concern. Hope to be able to host you again in the future and provide you a discount on your next stay. With the warmest regards, Sonia
