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 farmhouse in 2016

What dreams are made of

  • 4 of 5

I had the very good fortune to bring my family to Italy. We chose to stay in Villa Lorena. We had more than enough living space. The house was comfortable and inviting. We had an outdoor brick oven, a gorgeous sunroom with pool and a large kitchen to cook in. Several patios to sit out on and the pleasure of an occasional visit by the family horse and 2 donkey. The master bedroom and patio were absolutely amazing. The view is what we all see in pictures. I will go back again and again!

Gorgeous villa in breathtaking location

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family group of 11 absolutely loved this villa. There were many places, indoor and outdoor, to sit and chat, soak up the sun, enjoy the shade, admire the view or just be quiet. All of the rooms are beautifully finished. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We had a cooking lesson one day which was fun for both the kids and the adults. The herb garden was used to provide most of the seasoning for the meal. Another evening, we used the wood-fired pizza oven to make our own pizzas. We spent one day just hanging around the villa, relaxing and catching our breath. Other days were spent out and about in the area - Lucca, Cararra, Pisa, the Cinque Terre. The view from the villa gardens is breathtaking - olive trees, grape vines, a beautiful valley and village on the far side. Good grocery stores were a short drive away. The small indoor pool was a good place to cool down and relax. The washing machine and outdoor clothes line were useful and appreciated.

Enchanting villa in Tuscan hills

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay here for a family vacation and we are so glad we did. The locale is charming and the view from the villa is awesome. The villa is very comfortable and well equipped. What really made our stay memorable was the warmth of the owners Sonia and Lorena, and the staff. They were always very attentive and helped us in so many ways. They arranged for a chef to come in and prepare several delicious meals for us. They provided information on local restaurants and sightseeing options. An added benefit was that we were able to cook out on the grill and make pizza in the wood fired oven. If we wanted figs or grapes to snack on, all we had to do was go a few feet off the back patio and pick them. We were sad to leave the villa but took with us wonderful memories. We will go back any time. What a wonderful vacation!

Lovely Tuscan retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this Villa for 2 weeks. Villa is huge with great views from high on top on a hill surrounded by vineyards. Only 15 to 20 minutes drive to Lucca, 40 minutes to Pisa 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 grill outside was a memory for lifetime. Indoor pool was great way to warm up 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.
