The
Experience

Originating in 1753, revived phoenix-like from an 18th-century fire, commandeered by the Americans in WW2, and renovated over 30 years by the current family, this country pile of an agriturismo (Chianti grapes, organic olive oil) is steeped in history and character. No pool but a large lawned garden with a hot tub to share, heaps of olive groves and vineyards to stroll, farm machinery all around and a stunning view from the top of the hill. As for the apartments, two occupy an extended wing, the other is in the main house. They exude an elegant simplicity with their solid wrought-iron beds, new fireplaces, mottled, clotted cream paint schemes, cotta floors, and classic, cosy kitchens. The flat in the main house is decoratively busier, with its many antiques and Murano glass chandeliers. Your hosts, the charming Luca and his parents, are warm, fun, love horses (the stables house six, plus occasional shaky-kneed foals) and happy to advise on everything; they’ll even drive you to the restaurant down the road. Beautifully positioned for day trips to Florence, and a riding school nearby.

Reviews

Absolutely brilliant from the moment we arrived. Such a friendly family and always on hand when needed! Lovely accomodation, traditional italian feel throughout and the local vineyards and olive groves are absolutely stunning. We would definitely recommend La Cappannaccia to anyone looking for a brilliant quiet break!!

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Luca Bini

  • The typical Tuscan hospitality, a relaxing holiday with walks to explore the nearby hills in Florence, riding all year and harvesting of olives and grapes in autumn.
  • Visit Florence with its museums and monuments, the 'art and history, and for good food and good wine, shopping;
  • this is easy and fast from our farm and can be done every day, from the nearby tramway stop every 5 minutes and arrive at the railway station of Santa Maria Novella terminal in 20 minutes.
  • At La Capannaccia you are less than 50-70 km by car from the most beautiful towns in Tuscany (Arezzo, Siena, Pisa, Lucca), as well as small and nice cities (Impruneta, S. Gimignano, Certaldo, Pienza), famous places for history, arts, food and wine
  • Upon arrrival, or coming back in the afternoon, after a fatiguing trip, a comfortable relax in our Jacuzzi or in the swimming pool during sunset time is the best way to approach dinner time
