Lois Paganini

Trevi Fountain RomeOwner & Advisor

Lois Paganini entered the travel industry on a part-time basis in 1999. However, she was not new to the hospitality industry. Growing up, her parents ran a mid-size motel and she learned many aspects of that side of the industry. She fondly recalls often turning on the “No Vacancy” sign when she filled the last few rooms when her parents were out for the evening. In addition, other family members opened, and still own, a large hospitality distribution company, in the San Francisco Bay Area. So, Lois also grew up learning all about the products and services hotels needed to provide their guests. Lois commented, “I used to attend big lodging conventions where I met hotel owners, managers and suppliers. To me, it was fun. Little did I know, it was the initial training for a travel career.”

The Perfect Vacation was part-time for several years while Lois Paganini worked as a media (TV) account executive and then opened and managed a full service advertising agency. Later, she gained valuable travel experience at two travel agencies in the Central Valley before locating her boutique travel company in Old Town Clovis. The Perfect Vacation is now located on Pollasky Ave., between Gottschalk’s Music and Dolls, Bears & More. Lois especially enjoys planning vacations to Italy. If not working and traveling, you’ll find her reading and spending time with her pets and entertaining family and friends.
