“Perfect retreat ”
Reviewed April 15, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Numero 182 is the perfect place to holiday. Perfect location. Excellent apartment with everything you need. A wonderful private garden to relax in. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery. It is brilliantly located to visit charming villages, vineyards, explore hills and experience a little of Italian life. Just wonderful.

“Stunning location, self contained apartment with own garden, excellent hosts”

A piece of paradise within easy reach of Florence, Pisa, Lucca and a host of picturesque villages circling the valley. Remote enough to be unspoiled but close to Pescia and its rail station and supermarkets and coffee shops. Tuscany at its best can be seen in the countryside around here. Stuart and Helen are perfect hosts, not intrusive but on hand with help and advice when needed. Their command of the language is impressive and they are a part of the community they live in and well liked which means that the locals are helpful and friendly to guests. Good food and wine can be found around here and Stuart and Helen have sussed out the best to recommend. This is not a showy ex pat let but a real working small holding. Having said that the apartment is well appointed, clean and cool with a fantastic shower and an IKEA kitchen. The wildlife is ..... wild... but accessible. On cool still mornings at dawn you may catch sight of a deer or a pine marten in the woods or on the terraces. A magical place that I would visit again and again...and probably will.

If you're looking for an authentic yet comfortable place to stay - look no further! Helen and Stuart did a wonderful job furnishing this apartment, it is very cozy, beautiful and has everything you need. We were greeted as if we're old friends, Helen had a welcome basket with all the basics for us! So sweet! Stuart told us everything we needed to know to find our way around in this wonderful area.
Perfect stay in a perfect apartment in the most beautiful landscape with lovely hosts!
Thank you a million times Helen and Stuart, we can't wait to be back!
Came as guests, left as friends ❤️

“Wonderfully peaceful place to stay”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Upon arrival, our hosts were very welcoming and the apartment was clean and tidy. The views were just what we wanted - truly an Italian country setting. Our hosts made excellent suggestions of what to see and do as well as where to eat. A truly wonderful short stay.

“A taste of rural Tuscany with a spectacular view”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Both my girlfriend and myself have had a great time staying at numero 182 for the week in our first trip to Tuscany.

The apartment is tucked away just down the road from the local town of Pescia. From outside the apartment, you can enjoy a spectacular view where we often enjoyed lying on the loungers with a glass of local white whine in one hand and a book in the other whilst soaking up the welcoming italian sunshine. Inside, the apartment was well equipped and clean. We were also the first guests to try the welcome pack upgrade, offered as an add-on, which was waiting for us as we arrived. There was clearly a lot of thought and effort that went into organising the welcome pack, and not only did it look lovely, all the produce tasted great. We thoroughly recommend that people try the upgrade and that they also try out some of the recipes Stuart and Helen provide- our particular favourite being the potato salad with green beans and pesto.

Pescia itself is fairly small but has most things you will need including cafés, a supermarket, bus station and train station (which is well connected to Florence, Lucca, Pisa etc) and train tickets are relatively cheap.

Our hosts, Stuart and Helen, could not have been more helpful and friendly. They were both willing to go the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our stay. On the first night when we arrived we enjoyed having some wine and beer with them both and they made sure we were both settled. Later on in the week they also invited us along to a local wild boar festival which involved some good food, more wine and watching the locals dancing. They also helped shuttle us around, which we are very grateful for.

Overall we both have had a fantastic time and felt like we have had a proper holiday with a good mix of relaxing and being a tourist seeing the sights. We have already recommended the apartment to both of our families, and we have both said how we would like to stay again in the future!

“Wonderful!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a beautifully restored self-contained apartment in a Tuscan farmhouse. It is clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. It has it own seating area outside facing a wonderful view, with fireflies at night! It is situated on a hillside outside the village of Pietrabuona, so feels wonderfully secluded.

We also found that it was lovely and cool inside so we could escape the July heat - one of the real benefits of a traditional old building like this.

The owners were very welcoming and helpful, advising on Italian cheeses, local markets, places to eat and even gave us spare cucumbers from their smallholding!

It is a great base for visiting the region - we spent a week here and only managed a few of the many places to visit, so a return visit will be required!

“Rural peaceful retreat with fantastic views”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This place is a rural peaceful retreat owned by a lovely helpful couple who made our stay a delight. On hand with information yet discreet. A small hire car is recommended to get the best out of your stay but Pisa and Florence are easy to reach by train from the local station in Pescia. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need for your stay and proved to be a cool oasis in the heat of the day.
Several good restaurants within easy reach by car and supermarkets close by
