Here at 182 we are set in the middle of 12 acres of land: behind the house is a terraced olive grove which covers around an acre; a large proportion of the land leading up to the house is woodland, mainly made up of chestnut, oak and acacia. The wood is cut and seasoned each year for use as fuel to heat the house. A couple of very old donkey tracks run through the wooded area, which are often used by the deer that live here.There are also a couple of very small quarries on our land - which were probably the source of the stone for the house. The name ‘Pietrabuona’, the village that we overlook, literally translates as ‘good stone’ - suggesting that the area around us must have been famed for its quarries for many years.With 12 acres comes a lot of flora and fauna, and if nature interests you then this section is where you can find out what to expect to see here during your stay with us.Click the buttons above to see our catalogue of images and descriptions.
