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.

Like coming home
We enjoyed our stay at the old stonehouse during October 2017. It was a relaxing place to come to after touring all day and a busy schedule. Paola and David were very helpful and wonderful hosts. Thank you for the welcome goodies. Wayne and Monique
Beautiful location and accommodation
We had a wonderful stay with Paola and David who were both very helpful and friendly going out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed.The house is beautiful and our accommodation was well resourced and provided everything necessary to prepare food and enjoy our stay. We would recommend this location as a good base to explore Tuscany with all of the beautiful towns and villages within travelling distance. Janie & Tony
The hosts were very hospitable. Accommodations were very clean with a nice layout. We'd stay here again.
Very Pleasent Stay
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.
Wunderschön, ruhig und herzliche nette Gastgeber.
Wir können Paola und David wärmstens weiter empfehlen. Uns hat es an Nichts bemängelt. Danke für das herzliche Willkommen und die Aufmerksamkeit zum Empfang.

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 .
