Capannori Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self Catering holiday apartments for 2 to 6 people. Pool and Garden.

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

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.

Gezellig appartement in een prachtige omgeving

  • 5 of 5

Reeds bij aankomst bleek dit appartement een schot in de roos.

Een gezellig groot terras met verschillende overdekte prieeltjes, mooi versierd met oude landbouwwerktuigen getooid met bloemen.

De gastvrouw had zelfs een taart voor ons gebakken, en in de keuken was ook een kleine voorraad aanwezig.

Het appartement was lekker koel, erg netjes en proper, met voldoende leg- en hangruimte voor kleding, een kleine functionele keuken en badkamer.

Ook was er veel aandacht voor ecologie en sorteren van afval.

Gastvrouw en gastheer zijn supervriendelijk, en geven goede tips om de mooie Toscaanse omgeving te verkennen, ook buiten de "klassieke" toeristische toppers.

Het huis was ook goed gelegen in een rustig dorp, maar toch met goede bereikbaarheid van winkels en vlotte toegang tot grotere wegen.

Zeer tevreden dus !

Geweldig

  • 5 of 5

Wij zijn hier geweest van 25 september tot 2 oktober. De verwachting die wij van te voren hadden naar aanleiding van de foto's en recenties zijn meer dan waar gemaakt. Het was geweldig. Paola en David zijn geweldige mensen. Bij aankomst stond er een fles wijn, een zelf gemaakt taartje en sap en melk voor ons klaar. Een keurig schoon appartement. Functioneel ingericht met voor ons alles erop en eraan. In de tuin met zwembad kom je helemaal tot rust. Er zijn verschillende zitjes in de tuin waar je zowel in de zon als schaduw kunt zitten. Vlakbij zitten 2 geweldige restaurants waar je heerlijk kunt eten. Wij komen hier absoluut nog een keer weer.

Entspannung pur in ländlichem Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine wundervolle Woche im Stonehouse. Die Ground Floor Flat ist zwar nicht groß, aber für 2 Personen ausreichend. Zudem findet man im sehr großen und schönen Garten immer ein Plätzchen zum Sitzen in den vielen Sitzecken (diverse überdachte Sitzgruppen, Hollywood-Schaukel, Pool, Liegestühle,...).

Die herzlichen Besitzer wohnen im selben Haus, aber abgetrennt von den Ferienwohnungen und stehen mit hilfreichen Tips gerne zur Verfügung.

Das Haus liegt in ländlicher Umgebung. Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in unmittelbarer Nähe gibt es nicht, der etwa 6km entfernte Supermarkt ist jedoch bestens sortiert.

Pisa und Lucca sowie der schöne Strand in Marina de Vecchiano sind mit dem Auto gut zu erreichen. Aber auch der Rest der Toskana mit schönen Städten und Landschaften steht für Ausflüge und Touren offen - der Weg ist das Ziel!

Wer städtisches Treiben sucht ist hier falsch. Als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge und Spaziergänge können wir Stonehouse uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Ich denke, wir kommen wieder!

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
