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 2016

Fantastic large apartment in beautiful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4 nights in Lucca. The apartment was very accessible with everything you might need in the kitchen. With 3 very large bathrooms and bedrooms we were all extremely comfortable.

To make our stay even more enjoyable, Duccio surprised us at the train station to drive our bags and us to the apartment. He had also made a reservation at a fantastic restaurant just down the road from the apartment for our first night. And made recommendations for other restaurants and for the great gelato place just a few doors down, La Bottega del Gelato.

The unit has central air conditioning which seemed to work pretty well for the most part given the temperature in Tuscany in July! As another review noted, the 3rd bedroom is up some stairs.

a home in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable apartment in an excellent location in an antique elegant building. It is an oasis close to all main monuments and things to see in Lucca but in a very quiet street. After sightseeing or a day trip, when I walked over that corner, I almost felt like going back to my own home. Within a reach, traditional fruit and vegetable stands, 2 groceries, a fish market, a bus stop and the railway station are all there, but the apartment is definitely not in the crowd! It is so convenient! The proximity of the railway station allowed me taking train ride to explore nearby places such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, CinqueTerra and Bologna. Walking to the wineries and the antique shops nearby by crossing the street was my favorite activity. The garden was a delight, especially at night for romantic dinners and in the morning for our breakfast in the sun. We found the apartment to be spotless and spacious. Thank you

We loved the property. Beautiful, well maintained and located. Host was attentive and quick to fix a small problem with the water heater that in no way interfered with our stay. Loved Lucca and the flat. We would absolutely stay there again.

Lucca Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the Angelo Custode apartment, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Duccio was so accommodating and greeted us with a complete orientation of our apartment and gifts as well, and he was always available to us if we had any special needs. The apartment was clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location was near many shops, grocery store, restaurants the wall and the train station. We would definitely request this apartment again on future trips to Lucca.

Great location, great hosts and worth every cent!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in this apartment and were so pleased with every detail. If was easy to arrange check in, and were met by one of our hosts who showed us the apartment and gave a jar of his delicious homemade jam. After checking with us, our host also made a reservation on our behalf at a terrific restaurant just down the street, though it is hard to go wrong in Lucca!! The home is very nicely decorated (but not cluttered) and has a comfortable sitting / dining area. A first floor flat was ideal for us, however it would have been nice to know in advance that one of the bedrooms is actually on the second floor. But it is possible that we missed this detail somehow. In any case, we very much enjoyed our stay and felt like we were saying bye to a dear friend when we left.
