About Donna Sidel
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, but have loved Italy for many years, and travel there as often as we can. We always dreamed of owning a place there for when we retire. We have a few years left before retirement still, but decided to move ahead with purchasing a place. We were so fortunate to find Lucca Paradiso, a completely renovated apartment right in the historic center of Lucca, our favorite town.
Donna Sidel purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Donna Sidel chose Lucca
We both fell in love with Lucca the first time each of us visited (separately, before we were married). It is a complete medieval town, the only town left in Italy that is still fully surrounded by a wall. It is flat, so it is easy to get around, and unlike the hill towns, has a train station just outside the wall. We started looking in 2014 and couldn't believe it when we saw Lucca Paradiso. This apartment has everything we wanted. It is spacious, has beautiful bathrooms and a brand new kitchen. It is in a 4 unit building, and our neighbors are lovely, long-time residents. Because of its location at the back of a building, it is in the heart of everything but stays nice and quiet.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment features Tuscan charm with its beautiful brick arch above the front door, and original tiled living room floor. The tall (6 foot tall) windows and 20 foot ceilings make the place feel light and airy, and add to the sense of spaciousness. The ceilings in the living room and master bedroom are lovingly restored and repainted. From the entryway to our foyer to the apartment, everything matches the character of Lucca. The apartment offers free WiFi.

Donna’s apartment is absolutely perfect: spacious, clean, and completely comfortable. I had everything I could possibly need — ! The apartment is well appointed too: good cooking supplies including a great omelette pan, French press for coffee, and all else one needs for making good meals. Restaurants in Lucca are outstanding too (and Donna provides a helpful and wholly accurate list of some especially good options). Excellent WiFi in the apartment too. I stayed three happy weeks and explored much in Lucca and nearby Florence. Therenisnmuch wonderful music in Lucca — all nearby — I loved the concerts, botanical gardens, the extraordinary art in the churches and museums. It was also lovely just to walk on the ancient city wall, and I did this every day. A wonderful stay at Lucca Paradiso.
My sister and I traveled to Lucca for vacation. This apartment gave us our own rooms. It was peaceful and had comfortable beds. Donna was excellent to work with and made arriving easy. I highly recommend!
Lovely property in great location
The contact with the owner post booking was excellent, as was the welcome. The property is exactly as described in a perfect location for exploring beautiful Lucca. The air conditioning was fabulous and much needed. The spiral staircase to the mezzanine bedroom is tight so not ideal for a guest with any mobility issues but it was fine for us. The bed was very comfortable. Kitchen well equipped, nice bathroom, comfy lounge and information booklet was very helpful. I would recommend visiting Lucca and the property.
Charming Lucca apartment
We had a lovely stay in Donna’s place. The beds were very comfortable and it was quiet, day and night. A perfect spot to enjoy Lucca.
Feel at home in Lucca
Great location! Apartment was as photographed and very comfortable (AC was key in the summer heat) for our party of 3. We were met by a friendly and knowledgeable representative of the owner. Went smoothly from start to finish.
The perfect spot
Comfortable, clean, beautiful apartment Gorgeous ceilings. Great bed. Walk out your door and be in the thick of things. However, very quiet-no street noise at all when you’re inside. Loved Lucca. Perfect spot
