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 2011

a 5 stars review

  • 5 of 5

Hi Sonia we certainly want everyone to know about your wonderful apartment in beautiful Lucca! We had such a great time. From the beginning, when you met us and explained everything, until the end when you kindly arranged for our taxi to the airport, our stay was perfect. The apartment is lovely - well furnished, light and airy, with views of Lucca's rooftops from every window. We had everything we needed, including an elevator, which was so welcome after hours of walking! The location of the apartment is ideal- close to restaurants, groceries and shopping ( and the fine Lucca Italian School), yet there was no noise. We especially loved Nonna Clara, the little trattoria nearby, where the food was delicious and the owner and staff were so friendly. Another thing we loved was our cooking class with Giuseppe. It was one of the highlights of our stay and we thank you for the recommendation. Lucca is such a magical place - seemingly spared from modernization and development. Other than a few very hot days, we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful week. 5 stars! Best regards, Helen and Abby

Getting to Lucca we were quite excited to see this apartment. The location is wonderful. But, upon entering there is a smell of mold and mildew. You enter through a hallway that has the bath (1/2 bath) off of it and into a living room/kitchen area. Here there were pictures that needed to be hung turned backwards on the floor. If you turned right there was a room with drying rack and such and where the loft bed was above, then you enter the bedroom with the shower room off of it. The deck is off of the kitchen area. The door to the deck is quite low, so get ready to duck. None of these things are the cause of my rating. Rather it is this smell. It was present when we checked in and I thought I could handle it. But, the smell triggered my mold allergies and even after antihistamines I needed to find different accommodations. Sonia did not offer assistance or refund for this. If you have not problems with mold it will probably be fine, but be ware if you do.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to read this review. My guests satisfaction is my main concern and I am so sorry that someone has the feeling to have had an unpleasant stay. When myself and the renter enetered the apartment on the arrival day there was no smell, in fact the renter did not report any problem or disappointment, neither I got any notice in the days after the check in. I only received a complaint by email from the renter after they had left. I immediately replied saying that I was so sorry not to have learned this otherwise I could have provided an alternative accommodation/upgrade or even a refund if there was a smell in the apartment. I immediately inspected the apartment which in fact had no smell (I still have to figure out how a 4th floor apartment can smell of mold.. being so high in the air the apartment is sun exposed all around its walls and being so high from the ground level there cannot be any mold!). I had the feeling the renter just wanted to save some money with an uncommon complaint.

What a fantastic place - what a view!

  • 5 of 5

What a week we spent in this nice and comfortable apartment! The terrace had the most fantastic view over the nearby rooftops and towers in the lovely city of Lucca. We also enjoyed free access to two bikes, which we used very much, going on small tours on the city wall as well as lovely tours out of the city. This was our first time in Lucca, but we hope not the last! And we sure want to return to this prima appartment!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 glorious days in this apartment. What a great slice of Italy after very full days in Rome & Florence. Everything in the apt. was exactly as pictured and outlined. Sonia promptly met us at the apartment after we walked over from the train station - she thoroughly reviewed the amenities and particulars with us ensuring we didn't have any questions before she left. The views from the terrace are magnificent... this coupled with the daily "concerts" from the music school made for magical afternoons on the terrace. The apt. location is fantastic - Lucca is a town easily navigated on foot. Every meal was better than the next and we even made use of the apartment's kitchen on several nights by shopping in the local markets/shoppes. Gelateria Veneta is not to be missed!

Great Choice in Lucca!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Lucca. My husband and I stayed here for one week and were very happy with the apartment and its location. It is even nicer than the photos and all necessary amenities are supplied and it is very clean. The patio is just lovely with beautiful views of the town and surrounding hills. We saw an amazing lightning storm from the patio. The apartment is on a quiet street, but quite close to the Via Fillungo, the main street of Lucca. We appreciated the use of the bicycles and explored the entire town by bicycle. It is a bit odd to have the shower in the bedroom - especially if you would have more than 2 people - but it was a good shower. Be prepared to walk up the 82 steps to get to the apartment (the lift was a bit claustrophobic for me). It will help you work off all the yummy food in Lucca!

This is not to be missed -- absolutely outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Yes, this is a large apartment that is sparkling clean, modern and very comfortable. The terrace is spectacular with a large glass table and a view of The Tower -- amazing and the music below from the Boccherini school -- again wonderful. Pay parking in the Mazzini garage is the closest -- about a 12-15 minute walk. Be sure to get good directions for the first time because Lucca has many winding routes and byways. Suffragio is central to everything in Lucca -- and the supermercato [supermarket] is just around the corner. We did a lot of driving -- in the hills outside of Lucca [grand] and through the Chianti mountains [for wine tasting etc]. The driving was easier than in Ontario -- no left lane hogs!!!! I can't overstate -- no kidding -- how nice this apartment is and how it was a spectacular home base.
