About the property

STONEHOUSE ACCOMMODATION

Beautiful self contained self catering apartment in recently restored old Tuscan farmhouse. The rooms all have traditional beamed and tiled rooves. Garden and Swimming Pool for Guest Use, and car parking on the premises.

Stonehouse is an ideal base for visiting the historic cities of Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Siena. For more relaxing days, the beaches of Viareggio and Marina di Vecchiano are half an hour's drive away - or you can take a bike and explore the Bientina Marsh of the Pisan Hills.

The Apuan Alps, with their fine scenery and historic marble quarries are also close at hand, as are the more gentle Appenines.

The area is ideal for a blend of culture and activity, and the owners who live on site can help you to make the most of your holiday.

About Paola Pardini / David Hayward

Me and David during our gardening time.

We moved to the countryside to spend our free time outside enjoying nature.

I'm from Lucca and David is english. It could be work!

Paola Pardini / David Hayward purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Paola Pardini / David Hayward chose Piana di Lucca

We love to travel and we'd like to meet at Stonehouse the people that we couldn't meet away.

This house was the property of Agostino, the old farmer who lived here a long time ago, with his animals and his vegetable garden. We renovated this building to preserve the character of a farm house.

Our guests say: 'home away from home'. This is our goal.

What makes this apartment unique

When we were looking for a farm house, we saw this property and we thought: 'this is it!'.

We saw the mountains around, the churches on the hills, and the sunflowers. The colours around helped us to decide.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Quando c'è la fiera dei Comics and Games si sa che è sempre difficile trovare un posto .. ma noi quest'anno siamo stati cosi fortunati da capitare alla bellissima "Stonehouse".

Grazie ancora per la vostra calorosa accoglienza, il vostro aiuto, la buonissima torta di benvenuto e i preziosi consigli su dove mangiare ( consigliamo a tutti il ristorante "La Cantina di Alfredo" - ottimi prezzi e cibo squisito) nonchè per la gentilezza e disponibilità della Signora Paola che per aiutarci a sopravvivere alla folla dei comics era disponibile a venire a prenderci fino a Lucca!

Siamo stati veramente bene e speriamo tornare a trovarvi presto

Very Pleasent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very good hosts, we had difficulties finding the apartment (GPS), but a phone call to David and he came to direct us to our destination. On arrival we were delighted to find a Jam Tart, Milk, Orange Juice and a bottle of local Wine as a welcome gift, a very nice thought and the first time we had experienced it in 10 weeks of travel in Europe. The apartment itself was clean, warm, well appointed and very comfy bed. In all a great stay and would recommend this apartment 5 out of 5 Regards Barry and Jenny from Australia

Good value for money

  • 4 of 5

Charming hosts, spotlessly clean apartment, rural atmosphere yet easy access to supermarket and sightseeing locations! Looks a bit more spacious on the photo's than it really is. Good value for money.

Super Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Hallo David und Paola,

wir haben im Mai 2017 zwei wunderbare Wochen in diesem Landhaus verbringen dürfen und waren begeistert.

Die ruhige Lage, die private Atmosphäre, das schöne historische Haus und die geschmackvolle Einrichtung haben uns sehr gut gefallen. Der große Garten mit mit Pool in ruhiger Lage ist ein echtes Highlight und genau das richtige für gestresste Rentner.

Die supernetten Vermieter wohnen nebenan und kümmern sich sehr ohne aufdringlich zu sein.

Die Umgebung ist wunderschön, es gibt eine sehr gute günstige Pizzeria und eine Eisdiele wo wir das beste Eis gegessen haben. Florenz, Pisa, Lucca und die Strände und Küstenstädte sind gut zu erreichen.

Es gibt viel gute Wanderwege ind der unmittelbaren Umgebung.

Wir sind als Paar angereist und haben es auch sehr genossen. Es gibt genügend Privatsphäre.

Insgesamt ein Top-Angebot, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt unbedingt weiterzuempfehlen.

Viele Liebe Grüsse Detlef und Rita

Our house is a few miles from Lucca in the green of the Tuscan countryside. The village is S.Ginese di Compito and the adress is Via Centoni, N° 14.

The town of Lucca, with its famous ring of walls, can be reached in a quarter of an hour.

The motorway, which is close at hand, brings you in less than an hour to the artistic treasures of Pisa, Florence and Siena.

The rolling hills of Chianti country and the Etruscan town of Volterra can also easily be reached. For rest days, there are many interesting excursions locally - on foot or by bike - to explore the Bientina marsh with its interesting birdlife, or the Pisan hills.

The Appuan Alps, with their spectacular summits and historic marble quarries are less than an hour away, whilst on the other side of the Garfagnana valley there are the more gentle slopes of the Appenines.

For those who prefer the sea, the riviera is half an hour away at Viareggio, whilst the wilder coastline of the Cinque Terre is only a little further .

Other Activities: birdwatching

Ski: Possible to reach the Abetone Pass in 0 minutes for piste skiing.

Numerous ski mountaneering opportunities
