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 2017

Space and Comfort in Wonderful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 weeks in this lovely apartment in May/June. It is as the pictures show. The property was clean, very spacious and the fact that it had 2 bathrooms was an added bonus. The kitchen and laundry are both well equipped, and the building has both a lift and stairs making access quite easy. The apartment is light and airy and we enjoyed the sound of children playing in the school nearby. The location is fantastic - next to a great pasticceria, many good restaurants and just a short walk to the train station. Our only complaint is that we would have preferred a double bed rather than 2 singles pushed together - but that doesn't change our overall view of the property. We have dealt with Sonia now on several occasions and she is always a pleasure to deal with. Helpful, friendly and always available if there is a problem. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment, Sonia and most importantly the beautiful town of Lucca to anyone.

Quick stroll over to Lucca's lovely wall for a daily 4k walk around this exquisite small city. The apartment is in a 600 year old building and is completely functional --decent air conditioning if you're there in summer, great water pressure, exquisite light. The owners are clearly cultured people --plenty of books, lovely decorations. Were we to reture to Lucca we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Apartment with potential

  • 1 of 5

Pros: Large, wonderful windows for light and air; 2 bathrooms; washer/dryer

Cons: 1) Very over-crowded with furniture -- I had to move things into other rooms to make the space habitable. For example, upon arrival, I had to move a wood side table that was in front of the master toilet so that I'd be able to use the toilet (if I had not moved it, I would have had to sit sideways, and there wasn't even room to do that!); I had to move chairs that were blocking the master closets into another room so that I could unpack and store suitcases; the dresser is very large and I hit my back a few times when trying to retrieve things from the closet. There is simply too much furniture for the space. 2) Very cluttered with little things -- Every surface had multiple things (art pieces, vases, etc) on it and since I was afraid of breaking anything, and also because we needed space to put our things down on, I moved things to other surfaces we did not use. 3) The bedding was terrible; very soft and uncomfortable and I did not have one good night's sleep there. 4) The apartment/ furniture has an odor. I have traveled to Europe frequently and stayed in very old buildings like this one and I am aware of the odors that old buildings have. But this apartment was different; I think the old furniture has an odor, and that odor did not dissipate with open windows and it bothered me every day.

The apartment definitely has potential, but I would not stay there again unless the things I mentioned were addressed.

Owner's Response: Dear Denise, I find your comments quite unusual especially because I did not receive any complaint from you during your stay despite I met you in Lucca many times and asked if your stay was going ok and you always answered 'yes indeed'. By the way to consider the presence of decoration in an apartment a downside sound squite bizarre to me: things can be easily moved as you did or you could call me to move them and store them in my office.. it would not have been a problem. To rate a soft and brand new memory foam mattress as TERRIBLE it also quite bizarre. I would complaint if the mattress was old and firm but not brand new and soft. I did not find the apartment to have an odor.. the whole building and the whole 12 apartments in this building have been built new 5 years ago so it is not an old place.. Everyone has been so happy with the apartment so far that I am so surprised to receive your 1 star review.. I could understand 4 stars or even 3 stars.. but 1 star is really an exageration. I am very disappointed.
