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.

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 Capannori
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.

Très chaleureux accueil et belle maison
Nous avons été très chaleureusement accueillis par David et Paula, la maison est très spacieuse et nous avons bien pu profiter des extérieurs (jardin et piscine). Je recommande vivement ! Merci beaucoup à nos hôtes.
A beautiful spot in the Tuscan countryside
The loft apartment in Stonehouse is absolutely charming! After an action-packed bus tour of Italy, it was the perfect place to slow down and enjoy life in Tuscany for a few days. We enjoyed visiting Lucca, the medieval hill town of Volterra, and a wine tour near Montecarlo. Paola and David were friendly and gracious hosts who really helped us make the most of our time in Tuscany. If you are looking for an authentic place in a quiet country village, Stonehouse is the perfect choice! We would love to return some day.
Lovely apartment in peaceful location
We stayed in the top floor apartment for a week at the end of May. The accommodation was really nice and clean. The kitchenette had most of the items needed for a quick meal and the outside gardens included space to sit and enjoy the weather.
We would like to stay there again so I guess that's the best thing you could say about any accommodation.
Beautiful, quiet, comfortable
We stayed here for 4 nights. It's a very cozy space and was a great place to relax and feel at home. Paola and David were both very helpful and very responsive. We had everything we needed. And the bed was amazingly comfortable!! This location is a bit nestled away but that's what we were going for. Lucca is about a 15-20 min drive and Florence is about an hour away by car/train.
Excellent venue. Such beautiful surroundings. David and Paula very helpful.
a clean and comfortable apartment and a great holiday
we very much enjoyed our stay - the apartment was clean and comfortable and the hosts David and Paola were friendly and helpful - its location was good, a few miles out of Lucca in a quiet hamlet - there was a restaurant nearby which served good food and was obviously popular with locals - Lucca itself is a gem - very beautiful ancient walled city with narrow streets and beautiful houses - not too full of tourists and very relaxing - we also went to Florence and Pisa and to several hill villages - all wonderful - we would recommend this area to anyone and the property made a very good base from which to explore it
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 .
