Villa Rental Tuscany - Fattoria Capponi - Dolce and Gabbana
Description from the manager
Surrounded by vineyards, this Tuscany accommodation is conveniently located between Pisa and Florence, on a working vineyard that produces internationally renowned wine. This beautifully renovated, independent Tuscany villa can be rented as a whole to accommodate a large group, or as two independent apartments. There is also a small farmhouse nearby that can be rented together or separately. The villa and apartment offer comfortable furnishings, easy accessibility for day trips, great attention to detail, and many convenient services. This vacation villa rental in Tuscany is perfect for a group of 8, 16, or even 20 (when Soprani is rented). You can daytrip throughout Tuscany, sit by the pool with a glass of the estate’s wine, or hit the nearby trails on foot or on a mountain bike. It’s beautiful, ancient Tuscany with all of the modern perks.
There are three separate groupings of villa rentals on this vast estate. Each of the accommodations have been renovated and refurbished to a very high standard. Each group has its own pool and shred laundry facilities. While they are located on the same estate, they are not close together, but can be accessed by a short drive by car. One farmhouse is divided into four apartments
with a nearby barn
another is divided into 3 apartments
with a nearby farmhouse

By U.S. standards, the Italian kitchens are generally small, and the washers and dryers do take longer to complete cycles, due to their energry efficient designs.

The villa is well worth the money!! A great day trip is to the town of Montecantini Terme Alto was a great day trip. When you get into town head for Alto which is the mountain top. Drive up as far as you are allowed with your car, then walk up into the churches and the town --its incredible.
The villa was really beautiful there were 16 of us, yet we still had enough space for privacy. Having a pool was great. Location was perfect. 30 minutes from the airport -once you find the FI-PI-LI, it's very direct. Conducive for days trips and then at the end of the day you come home to a comfortable roomy home with all the amenities.
There was a barking dog barking right out the back yard. There is a working construction-dirt moving site right below the back yard and the trucks beeping goes all day long. The noise from the site is annoying. But you get used to it. It wasn't bothersome enough to keep me away for the next visit!!
Very close to the FI-PI-LI and major roadways-- plus you have the option of taking the smaller countryside road to same destinations if you choose. It is for the most part -- very peaceful. The restaurants referred by property manager were outstanding. They are within 5 -8 miles from Villa, but be prepared to learn some Italian. The menus are not in English.

The estate was very beautiful with the attached wild areas. Everyone treated us very well, and when we had a request it was taken care of quickly. I was especially impressed with the central location of the property and the ease to travel to so many places nearby.
We enjoyed the pool and the outside BBQ. I also enjoyed picking figs for breakfast.
Barking dogs all night. It would have been nice to have had an English Channel on the TV. Two-hour washing machine cycles.
Tuscany is so beautiful and we were right in the middle of it. We all enjoyed the proximity to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Pontederea, San Gimignano, Siena, and the coast.
