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 villa in 2011

Wonderful stay in the Tuscan Countryside.

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in the Farmhouse Villa with a Family of 8 and had an incredible time. Located 25 minutes from Lucca, it was a wonderful location for a base to go out on day trips either by car or by train out of Lucca. The home itself has such great character, an older farmhouse style villa located up in the hills where the only sounds you hear at night are the bells from the church about 1/4 mile away. Absolutely beautiful. Met the owner on the final day and she was so nice and treated us like Family. Highly recommend a stay here if you are looking to get the feel of the Italian country setting.

you can't find a better place if you are staying in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Villa for 2 weeks between August and September. Villa is huge with great views from high on top on mountain. Only 10 mins drive to Lucca, 40 minutes to Pisa, 30 mins to the beach and 45 mins to Florence. Made arrangements for tours, cooking class with Villa owners which were great. Also BBQ night using Villa's own wood bbq outside was a memory for lifetime. Infinity pool was great way to cool off after a long day of touring. Host provided maps, navigation and phones which made finding places to see/eat easy. If you are staying in Tuscany you can't find a better place

Wonderful Villa and service received

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks at this villa in September this year. The description and photographs of the property are entirely representative: there are no unpleasant surprises. We were delighted with the property, the location and the service we received.

Both the main villa and the hayloft are spacious and comfortable. The pool is amazing and very well equipped with a soft sunbed for each of the 10 of us.

The location is certainly perfect for sightseeing, shops are within a three minute drive and the villages of Segromigno, Camigliano and the wonderful Montecarlo which has plenty of good restaurants, are very close. Lucca is very accessible (within a 10 mins drive), as are other medieval, hilltop towns. But we found sitting by the pool or enjoying a meal or glass of wine in the garden equally appealing prospects.

Mrs Sonia and her aunt were very friendly, took care of any small problem, and also hosted a visit at the winery for us, which we all enjoyed. Mrs Cristina cooked dinner for us on our last night, and it was spectacular!

Everyone in our party of 10 would look forward to another opportunity to stay at the villa in the future.

Thanks Sonia!

A Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 including 2 hard to impress teenagers, spent 2 weeks at Il Melograno during July 2012. Owners Mrs Maurizia and Mrs Sonia provided invaluable assistance, and of our 5 weeks of travel in Europe staying in some great places, our family all agrees that Il Melograno was our most special and memorable place to stay.

The house is large, full of character and comfort, and most important given that it was cosy and cool for a summer stay. It was also clean and very well equipped. We spent many relaxing hours at the magnificent pool and alfresco under the rose veranda with a large stock of traditional local food and fine wines, and plenty of books and other materials available inside.

The position is magnificent, and the views and walks very lovely. We did see as much of the area as planned, but had more time to enjoy the house, relax and gaze over the views from the garden!

The owners are very sweet, they were very concerned for our satisfaction and they treated us like member of their family, they are not people who simply collect a rental fee and leave their guests to fend for themselves. We were absolutely satisfied and we are happy to have found a place where we can come back next summer.

A lovely experience

  • 5 of 5

5 adults and a 14 year old just spent a lovely week on the property. It was just as advertised. The owner was very welcoming, accommodating [even bought a brand new washing machine] and helpful. The property is very clean and well maintained. The view is lovely and the swimming pool was a lot of fun.

The owner also gave several good restaurant recommendations.

You definitely need a car.

We did day trips to Chianti, "San G," Cinque Terre, and Portofino. Pisa is less than an hour away and the walled city of Lucca (with bicycle ride around the ramparts!!) is not to be missed.

memorable stay at melograno

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Melograno on a friend's recommendation and we did not regret it. The owner, Maurizia, made us feel at home and provided us with usefull informations to make our trip memorable. The location is ideal, very close to Lucca, the grounds are well maintained and what about the view, breathless. We had the opportunity to really enjoy the villa because everything is so close and can be done in a day trip. Everything was very clean and functional for our family of 10. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone. If we are to go back to Tuscany, this would be our place to go back. Thanks Maurizia for a memorable stay.

Lucca, beautiful city, famous for its monumental 15th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria, the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany. Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town’s finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes’ walk from the apartment. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes’ walk. In Lucca’s winding streets, the pedestrian comes before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city.
