“Lovely apartment, as described.”

Great location....supermarket 10 minute walk, bus station 20 minute walk, train station 25 minute walk. Apartment is very well equipped, and Masimiliano is very helpful.

“Great Christmas stay in Lucca”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We have just come back from a short week in Lucca where we stayed at Appartamento Paola. We had a great time as an extended family: we were 4 adults and a child and really felt we had more than enough space for everyone. The appartment seems to have been recently refurbished with a really nice and practical modern kitchen whilst still retaining some period features and very high ceilings. It was very well equipped. and we enjoyed having our own space and cook our own meals at times.The 2nd bedroom is more adapted to children but there is a separate lounge/TV room that can also be used as a double bedroom with a sofa bed. The Master bedroom otherwise is really big and can easily accomodate an extra bed for a child for example.
As it was winter I was a bit worried about being cold, but the heating worked very well and the temperature in the appartment was absolutely pleasant. It's just 5-10 min walk from the city walls, which was nice to still have an evening passeggiata in town, whilst being more practical with a car than if we were staying within the centre. There is a high street really close by with shops practical for daily grocery shopping. Massimiliano, the owner, was very helpful and flexible - I would definitely recommend this place.

“Lovely apartment in lovely Lucca”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We loved our stay in Lucca and the apartment. Situated a few minutes outside the walls of the old town, it is more peaceful and has good local shops (bakery, fruit and veg’ and small supermarket) within a couple of minutes walk. The larger Esselunga supermarket is about 10 minutes walk on the ring road north of the city. The apartment is really well equipped and as good as it looks on the photos.
We would certainly recommend this apartment and Lucca.

“Beautiful apartment, perfect location!”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from a fantastic week in Lucca! Apartment was well equipped and spotlessly clean, everything you need for a short stay. Apartment was ideally located just a 5 min walk outside the walls with shops, bank and everything you need in a close vicinity. Hosts were warm and welcoming,catering to all needs. Will definitely be returning, and highly recommend. Thanks for a great stay! Grazie

“Fantastic property in an excellent location that we would recommend to anyone.”

This property - just outside the town walls to the north - was ideal for us as a couple spending a week and a half exploring Lucca and its surroundings. Everything you might need is there (good cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, ironing board etc.), the toilets/bath/shower rooms are really nice and with a bit of fiddling about you can get some satellite telly channels in English! There's a nearby supermarket and the delis in Lucca itself that between them sell everything you need for cooking nice Italian food and there are also plenty of places to eat out. Highly recommended.

“Perect, and actually fairly luxurious, self-catering appartment base from which to explore Lucca and its surroundings.”

As self-catering appartments go it's pretty hard to find fault with Appartamento Paola. We had a wonderful time either eating in many of the local places - none of which let us down - or cooking in the apartment's reasonably well-appointed kitchen. The place was clean, had great showers and was missing nothing that one might want. And in addition to the famed delis within the walls of Lucca, there is also a supermarket not ten minutes away! Our stay ended up being one of the best holidays I've ever had and I heartily recommend the place and its friendly owners to anyone.

Liked best: The comfort - meanng just staying at home wiyh a dram could be a pleasant way to spend the evening.
Liked least: Difficult to say. The distance from the train station was frustrating, as we walked. But we could have got a taxi.
