About Paola Pavanelli

Hello, I am paola Pavanelli and since more than 15 years I am leading my small entreprise, I am really concerned with my guests and I wish they feel welcomed and confortables in my house. Lucca is really a special town (I come fm Bologna) and I moved here because of its antiquities, quietness and green surroundings.

Paola Pavanelli purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Paola Pavanelli chose Lucca

I speak mainly English, but even French and Spanish, so do not hesitate to ask me in your language!

What makes this apartment unique

I can say that value for money is very good. My properties prices are very low comparing to the market, first because I do not have employeers, and I do all work necessary by myself with my husband precious help and then because with my prices I usually fill up all weeks, so at the end I am satisfied of my earning and my clients are happy because they did not spend so much.

Apartment with character.

  • 4 of 5

This is probably the most unusual apartment we have ever stayed in and it is spacious compared to many others. The entrance hall gives access into the kitchen, which is small, but there is enough room to sit at the table to eat. The cooking provision is two gas rings and saucepans, basic equipment and crockery and cutlery are provided. The bathroom goes off the kitchen and contains toilet, sink, shower, bidet and washing machine. There was always hot water in the shower. The bathroom is a little tight for space.

The living room is a good size containing TV, sofa, table and plenty of shelving. From the living room there is a narrow spiral staircase going up to a mezzanine floor which has a double bed and wardrobe. This floor has clearly been added recently. There are exposed original beams which add character and the bed being upstairs accounts for the extra space downstairs.

Positives: the apartment has a lot of character - it is old and has the original beams exposed - it felt like we were staying somewhere 'real' not a generic tourist place. We appreciated the amount of space (compared to other apartments we have stayed in). We had much better WIFI access than in some other places. We had a very friendly welcome from the owner who was available but not intrusive throughout our stay - good communication by email. The location was excellent - very central but quiet in the evenings. We had good access to local shops and restaurants. We had come to Lucca to cycle in the countryside and there was room to store our hire bikes in the entrance hall.

Negatives: we arrived on a very wet day in October - the apartment felt a little cold and damp and we had wet clothes and shoes. There was no possibility of putting heating on - I would never expect to need heating in Italy in October but on this occasion it would have been nice. The property is a little tired but generally clean e.g. the linen is old but definitely clean. Having said this, I did need to dust the top of the wardrobe before I would put my rucksack on it and there were a few cobwebs hanging around at eye level on mezzanine floor. Neither of these negatives would stop me booking to stay here again.

Two perks: the apartment, and the owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Paola's lovely, centrally-located garden apartment and could not have been more pleased. The location is fantastic, with walking distance to all of Lucca's main attractions, and yet on a quiet street for sleeping. The apartment is comfortable, charming, very well appointed and quite spacious for two people. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make basic meals (tip: the Esselunga just north of the walls is a fantastic grocery store). And we can't say enough good things about Paola. In addition to being a total sweetheart, she is also so professional and could not have done more to ensure that all of our needs were met during our stay. We loved it and count this experience as one of the highlights of our trip to Italy.
