The space

A lovely bright apartment placed right in the heart of the old town, on the top floor of a historic building in the "Decumano maggiore" (one of the three main street of the Roman city). There’s no elevator, but 123 low steps divided in short flights (except for the last one).

The flat consists of a living room with a well equipped cooking corner, a double room from where you reach the only bathroom with shower, a large loft with a sofa which is also a pull-out double bed, a wonderful private roof-terrace with a very beautiful view on the whole city (from "Castel Sant’Elmo" and the "Certosa di San Martino" to the Vesuvio, to the port, all nestled among the domes and the bell towers of the innumerable churches of the old town).

Just a few minutes (or better, 123 steps! ) from all the most famous sights:
"Via S. Gregorio Armeno" (the street of the cribs), the beautiful Gothic Church of S. Lorenzo, "Napoli Sotterranea" (Underground Naples), the Renaissance "Pontano" Chapel with the nearby Romanesque bell tower of"Pietrasanta", the "Sansevero" Chapel with its impressive Veiled Christ, "Piazza San Domenico Maggiore" with the homonymous church, "Spaccanapoli" street with the Church of Santa Chiara and its cloister tiled with majolica, "Piazza del Gesù Nuovo", "Port'Alba" with its ancient bookshops, "PiazzaDante" with the stop of the new metro line designed by Gae Aulenti and part of the "art stations circuit", the prestigious Conservatory of "San Pietro a Majella" with the nearby church, "Piazza Bellini" where you can find the ruins of the ancient Greek city wall and a variety of fashion literary cafes, Bellini theater, the National Archaeological Museum, the Cathedral and San Gennaro's Treasure .

On the "Decumano maggiore" you can find a lot of the most renowned pizzerias and many little restaurants where you can enjoy, with a few money, a good pizza and a typical Neapolitan food.

In a few words, if you choose this accomodation, you’ll taste the bustling life of an ancient city center declared Humanity heritage by UNESCO and, at the same time, a relaxing atmosphere when you stay on the roof-terrace.
Don't loose the opportunity to live the same unique experience which inspired the Neapolitan writer Fabrizia Ramondino, who lived in this apartment for several years, to write some of her most beautiful books!

The apartment is equipped with kitchenware, bed linen, pillows and towels for each guest.

It’s the ideal flat for 4 people or for 2 couples of friends with no problems to enter the only bathroom from the bedroom.

There’s the possibility to host two people more using the other sofa bed in the living room, but this is good only for a family with three or four children because the apartment is not so large to host five or six adults.

A wonderful appartment in the heart of the old city with stunning views over the gulf of Naples. We enjoyed the warm reception by our host Paola and felt really at home in this cosy place...we can only recommend it!

We loved staying for four days in Paula's apartment. The building is very historical and she added so many personal touches to make the apartment feel like a home away from home. The view is incredible! Dropping off our luggage was easy and so was communicating with Paula. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to visit Napoli again!

We stayed in Paula's Naples apartment 3 years ago in 2014 & we loved it so much we stayed there again this year. My wife & 2 daughters, ages 9 & 12, love the roominess of the place. Including the breathtaking 360 degree terrace, there're 3 levels. Why should you stay here? Well, there's a certain chaotic quality to Naples that is both wonderful & also draining. You're going to need an oasis of calm at the end of your day just to recalibrate yourself. Paula's flat does just this. Its location is also perfect. It's in he heart of the heart of Old City, across from one the best pizza places in town (Sobillos) & it's a great base for launching out to other sites in the region. (Among our favorites were the Path of the Gods hike from Bomerano to Positano, Pompeii, Ravello, Capri & the Naples Archeological Museum). Yes, there're over 100 steps up to the apt. but it help reduce the guilt of having had those extra couple of slices of pizza!

Location is everything & this apartment is perfect - situated in the historic center of Naples! Across the road from a famous pizza shop & generally walkable to all destinations in naples. Not to miss is the amazing rooftop terrace which offers a 360 degree view of the city + coast + vesiuvio :) Apartment was clean, great host & easy communication. Would definitely recommend!

Paola User ProfilePaola is a superhost.

Ho difficoltà a descrivermi con persone che non conosco.

Al contrario, sono piuttosto loquace e socievole con le persone che conosco.

Ho la fortuna di avere sempre avuto amici veri sin da quando ero piccola ed attribuisco all'amicizia un valore fondamentale.

Preferisco le relazioni dirette e riservo ai contatti virtuali la forza per condurre battaglie comuni.

Mi piace molto viaggiare e farlo organizzando tutto all'ultimo momento perché non amo essere vincolata a lunga scadenza per lasciarmi sempre un margine di libertà e perché sono anche un'indecisa cronica. Cionondimeno, una volta deciso un itinerario, mi do da fare per organizzare il tutto al meglio perché sono anche una perfezionista ed una stakanovista. Insomma, in quasi tutto, cerco la fatidica e difficile "quadratura del cerchio".

Non sono un'amante delle comodità per cui viaggio, senza difficoltà, in modo piuttosto spartano. Il che non significa che non apprezzi il valore aggiunto delle cose belle, anzi, per certi versi, la bellezza è per me davvero quasi vitale, solo che, per fortuna, ho un mio particolare concetto e declinazione della bellezza. Così non sono per niente attratta dai gioielli canonici mentre posso perdere ore e provare intensa gioia nello scegliere un piccolo oggetto di uso quotidiano.

All'ospitalità ho sempre attribuito quasi un valore "sacro", ma finora l'ho fatto solo per i miei amici e spero di essere riuscita a trasmettere il calore di avere il piacere di stare insieme.
Questa è la prima volta che mi decido - pur ripromettendomelo da molto tempo - di "ospitare" dietro un compenso economico (recentemente ho fatto una specie di prova generale grazie alla disponibilità di amici molto cortesi che, peraltro, mi hanno invogliata a pubblicare il mio annuncio su questo sito). Devo confessare che utilizzo il termine "ospitare" in questi casi con una certa difficoltà.

Mi piace molto leggere romanzi, specie di scrittrici donne.

Se potessi ogni giorno andrei al cinema anche, se non addirittura preferibilmente, da sola così da non dovere scendere a compromessi sulla scelta del posto (amo "immergermi" nello schermo) e non correre il pericolo di continui commenti al film. A me i commenti piace ascoltarli e farli solo a proiezione completata. E solo dopo essermi fatta una mia idea personale mi piace leggere i commenti dei critici (prima temo che possano influenzarmi).

Amo la politica, ma quella in cui davvero lotti per quello in cui credi e per cercare di renderlo realizzabile, mentre depreco tutti i giochi e giochetti di potere e tutte le battaglie fatte solo per "partito preso".
