Review of our guest
As a retirement gift, we went to spend 3 weeks under the Tuscan sun and in its glorious hills. We found Villa le Capanne, adjacent to the charming, old world hilltop village of Monte Castelli, via agritourismo and Trip Advisor. My goal was to be in the towns and villages, so we chose the Villa over places closer to Siena. It was a dream come true. We were delighted. Hosts Gina & Franco greeted us so warmly on arrival, after we had been traveling for over 12 hours from France. Gina had a welcome basket for us, so our fretting about arriving in the evening without groceries was immediately allayed. They showed us around and we were as good as home for nearly a month….read the complete review on tripadvisor, Kennzeagle1
david and i are just back from a really wonderful 11 days at the villa of Gina and Franco. the villa had everything we needed and a welcome package of food awaited us food in the fridge and a basket of goodies. they were there every morning to clean around pool area and it was a good opportunity to get their advice on places to visit. we had some quiet days and some sight seeing. we visited Volterra, sienna, cortona florence, had a wonderful day on the coast warm sea and sandy beach then back to the villa for swim and hot tub. thank you Gina and Franco., Mattyourell
Fabulous villa, located down a private road with fantastic views and no near neighbours. The owners have made this a true “home from home” and have thought of everything to make this a truly relaxing holiday. This has been the family home of Gina for 4 generations, and her love of the property, and the area, certainly shows through. The owners visit each morning – unobtrusively- to ensure the pool and area is kept spotless, occasionally leaving small gifts ( e.g. tiramisu,tomatoes, cake). They will happily share their knowledge of the local area with you, if you wish.
The villa is within walking distance of the village, with a great restaurant, and within an hour of Siena. There are numerous hill towns to visit, if you can pull yourself away from this idyllic villa with private pool and jacuzzi!, Ros L.
It was our second stay at Villa Le Capanne this last summer and still the same enchantment.
At our arrival the fridge was again fully filled of various pieces of food an drinks.
Since our stay last year the floor around the pool and the hot tub ,though it was still in good shape, has been completely renewed.Gina & Franco are so charming persons showing themselves always attentive to the wellness of their guests , making sure at any time that everything is ok , while they can remain discrete when they come every morning for cleaning the pool and maintaining the outside.
For our second stay in their villla they also offered a meal in a local agriturismo whose one we are keeping an excellent souvenir. What to say more except thanking them again for all this. Isa ,Johnny,Cecilia & Andre, 41andrer
Gina and Franco were wonderful hosts. We arrived to a super “welcome pack”. The villa was spotless and had all that was required. The pool ( not heated ) and hot tub were a welcome sight at the end of the day. We spent two fabulous weeks in Villa Capanne and if we the chance we are sure to come back. Thank you Gina and Franco, Underthestars18
This was our second visit to le Capanne and it did not disappoint. It’s the ideal place for lazy days and rest whilst also giving the opportunity to visit some beautiful towns just an short drive away, it’s the best of both worlds!. Gina and Franco and the loveliest hosts and could not make our stay any better. Montecastelli is stunning and my sketchbook is full of drawings of the town, L’Orto del Prete is a great, friendly restaurant and within walking distance. A holiday to remember! We can thoroughly recommend Le Cappane and it’s fabulous owners!, Sparkyhunter1
