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.

Wonderful evenings on the roof top terrace

  • 4 of 5

Had a memorable 9 nights at this location. Accommodation was perfect. The roof top terrace was a brilliant addition with fantastic views of Lucca and the surrounding mountains. We'll be back.

Beautiful Apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 10 days in the amazing town of Lucca and were fortunate to have booked this beautiful apartment. The accommodations were very comfortable for myself, my husband and our adult son and daughter-in-law. This apartment is owned by an artist and so is beautifully decorated with art work, both by the owner and other artists. The apartment has very comfortable sleeping arrangements and bathrooms. The most amazing feature of the apartment is the terrace which overlooks all of Lucca. We spent many an evening there for wine and cheese. The kitchen is fairly well supplied, although we found that eating out in Lucca is part of the experience and very reasonable. One of our favorite restaurants is just around the corner - Gli Orti di Via Elisa. The Lucca wall and is close for walking and bike riding, a don't miss experience. Lucca is an amazing town -- the history, food, shopping, people and music. Don't miss the weekly Puccini concert in the San Giovanni church.The train station is in walking distance for easy access to Florence or other destinations in Italy. One final note, the apartment is on the 3rd floor so there are many steps which may not be appropriate for young children or anyone unable to climb stairs easily. We didn't mind it as it was nice to have the exercise especially after all of the fine food of Italy!

It's all about the terrace

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 6-night stay at this wonderful property. The big selling point is the terrace, which is just as represented in the photos. The building is quite tall (4-stories) so it has an almost unobstructed 360-degree view, including sites such as the Guinigi Tower, almost a stone' throw away. Few places in Lucca have a terrace with such a commanding view.

We also really enjoyed the location of the property. It's on a quiet street that is composed mostly of apartments and few stores so the noise level was almost non-existent after 8 PM. We loved sleeping with the windows open, hearing the birds in the morning hours. The location is quite convenient, however, to any place you'd want to walk (restaurants, the supermarket, the Anfiteatro, etc.)

The one caution: be prepared to walk up stairs. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, and it is located on two floors. My wife and I didn't mind in the slightest, but this aspect of the unit should be considered if walking up stairs several times each day my dim your enthusiasm.

The kitchen was functional but perhaps a bit less well stocked than places we have stayed. This may or may not matter depending on your level of culinary ambitions.

The apartment sleeps six, but more practically, two couples and two children. The property is basically split onto 2 floors, which is a nice attribute to provide a bit more personal space if two or more couples are sharing the space. It is well furnished and we enjoyed the eclectic art on the walls.

All in all, we had a very nice stay and will likely try to rent this apartment on your next return to Lucca.
