Description

"Casa Capannina", a small semi-attached cottage , is set slightly aside with its back to the other 3 buildings , which guarantees much privacy.

constructed by farmers its original use was as stable for cows . Prove of this gives the typical long house structure, its low ceilings and separate position.

This cottage, restored in 2009, when we also added additional living space (the "tower") is the perfect location for honeymooners, 2 couples or a small family looking for privacy and peace - and is the perfect starting point for sightseeing since most important sights can be easily reached within 1 hours drive.

Especially here is the "rule" - enjoy the sunset in complete silence from your terrace with its shady pavillon, garden furniture, sunbeds as well as a bbq. Gaze onto the extended gardens, the romantic creek and the surrounding maddows and vast macchia covered hills of this private property of 178 acres . Start your hiking + biking from your doorsteps on well marked trails. Or simply take a stroll on our meditation trail along the small creek with its waterfalls, walk up to the waterlily pond or through the valley to the Castellina in Chianti

Groundfloor: from livingroom (TV, dvd, stereo, internet) , with corner fireplace + large window doors an archway opens into the fully eqipped kitchen (4flame gas stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezew combination, toaster, American & Italian coffee maker etc. etc. ) with additional dining space. also here a direct access to the terrace. Straight on the spacious bedroom no. 1 (2 singles, 1 sofa bed) with ensuite bathroom.

Upstairs in the airy living tower a 2nd bedroom (double, queen size, double sofa bed), again with ensuite shower/toilet. All windows have mosquito screens.

The extended garden park is the pride of the German owner. Cascades of flowers, rose bushes, citrus fruits as well as the surrounding meadows with many rare types of orchids and wild herbs create the unforgettable image of a lost paradise.

Animated is this small paradise by various cats, 2 freeroaming wellbehaved dogs (1 male, 1 lively female), a pictoresque small herd of cameroon sheep, chicken, geese, ducks, pigeons and more. Stunning the variaty of birds and butterflies as well as fireflies. And with a bit of patience one may also see wild boars, deer and roe deer, foxes, badgers and porcupines as well as the rare Tuscan eagle that breeds in our valley.

Enjoy the sunset in complete silence from your terrace with its shady loggia, garden furniture, sunbeds as well as a bbq. Gaze onto the extended gardens, the romantic creek and the surrounding maddows and vast macchia covered hills of this private property of more then 76 ha. Start your hiking + biking directly form your doorsteps on well marked trails. Or simply take a stroll on our meditation trail along the small creek with its waterfalls, walk up to the waterlily pond or through the valley to the nearby town of Castellina in Chianti

Admire the increditable variaty if wild flowers and walk along small trails that we cut right through the maddows - amazing the spectacle of fireflies in late May and June, the songs of the many nightingales and the concert of hundreds of birds in the morning and evening.

English, German + Italian speaking owner lives on site

Location: We are a tiny hamlet 500 m from main road - no long rides on dusty country roads

Being close to the next town Castellina in Chianti (only 3 km) shopping + dining is easy - one may even walk there - just zip into town for a coffee break or some of the best ice-creme of the area

Some thoughts : isolated houses in hill positions may suffer from water shortage in summer + gusty winds in spring + autumn, shortening the pool season. Our protected position, typical for real old houses + the many wells help us avoid either. also during thunderstorms, electrical failures are not uncommon, but due to the closeness to town we profit from its priority rating.

Pool: Since there are sooo many sights to visit + things to do most of our guests take off early in the morning + come back late in the evening, after a dip in the pool they are off again for dinner. so pool + leisure area are often deserted

we also offer breakfast services, cookery courses or dinner activities (our Tuscan welcome dinners are famous) we may arrange special dining events for our guests. trekking with visits to winery and restaurant , concerts, etc. etc,. - we gladly assist you with advise.

for cooler days keep in mind that there are fantastic hot springs only 45 min drive away

Attention "snowbirds" !!!! - Tuscany offers pleasant temperatures, low rates, all major Italian sights within 1 days drive, hot springs and spa, dining and wining at its best
