“Beautiful villa and amenities exceptional”
I stayed at Le Capanne from 4 - 11 June 2016 with my husband, stepson and his partner. The property was superb and the best equipped I have ever stayed in. Gina and her husband are lovely people and went out of their way to help such as advising on travelling to nearby towns and making a restaurant reservation for us. Gina left a pannacotta and bread for us during our stay which was a really lovely gesture as well as a nice welcome basket of foodstuffs.The location was superb, as was the pool and hot tub which was used many times. We enjoyed having a barbecue one evening in the garden.The property and grounds were very well cared for. We did not have to worry about anything except enjoying our holiday. We visited Siena, San Gimignano ( a must visit), Florence and Pisa. We all agreed it was one of the best holidays we have ever had and we all would love to return again in the future. I recommend this villa without hesitation. Thank you so much to Gina and Franco for a great holiday.
“Fantastic Hosts for this unique countryside Villa”
Our trip to Italy still fresh in our minds so we wanted to write to tell others about our lovely experience at Villa le Capanne. We stayed with another couple for one week, make trips to Florence, Voltera, Pisa and more. Gina and Franco met us and welcomed us with enough goodies to keep us well taken care of until we could shop. Each day, a new treat appeared and they were all yummy-Gina is a fantastic baker and cook. The villa was spotless and just as described. Let me just say that the location is a bit of a challenge, but worth it for the views. Sitting around the pool and gazebo was very relaxing. You may need to allow extra time to get to the main roads for day trips but if you are prepared, it is not a problem. We had some great fun at the local restaurant, pizza on the weekend and then dinner on another night. The little village, Montecastelli Pisano was charming and we walked on a quiet street and found a violin maker who played us one of his own compositions-unique experience! Great hosts in a lovely setting!
This was the second time we had stayed at Gina and Franco's villa and, once again, we had a wonderful time. The house and garden are absolutely perfect and the pool and hot tub are just what you need to relax after a day of site-seeing or walking. Montecastelli is is lovely little village with a very nice restaurant. All major tourist attractions and the coast are accessible from here. There countryside is beautiful and if you like walking or cycling this is also a great place to be based. Nothing is too much for Gina and Franco, they are so helpful and friendly, cleaning the pool each day, leaving little gifts of cake or lasagne, taking us out walking: we can't thank them enough for such a lovely holiday. It won't be the last time we visit Le Capanne.
“More beautiful than we had ever imagined”
We have just returned from Italy spending two weeks at Villa le Capanne. We met our American friends in Florence and drove to Montecastelli Pisano. Our hosts, Gina and Franco, welcomed us with a table full of goodies to start off our holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean and every day Gina and Franco would clean the pool and hot tub and leave us treats at the front door which were always a great surprise. They were the perfect hosts and did not intrude on us in any way and yet when we needed their help after a minor road accident in our rental car, they came to our assistance immediately for which we were very grateful. The Tuscan countryside was beautiful and we loved meeting the locals and managing to always make ourselves understood with their help. We would recommend the villa for anyone wishing to really experience the country life in Italy. You will need a car to get to the various hill towns around but we managed to see a lot and enjoyed the hot tub after a long day when we would discuss that we had seen over a glass of vino. Thank you Gina and Franco for making our Italian holiday one we will always remember.
“The REAL Tuscany experience”
The villa exceeded all of our expectations. It is a beautiful setting and very quiet. Gina and Franco were the perfect hosts and were there to serve us however they could without being intrusive. We frequently awoke to new treats left outside the front door the first thing in the morning. The villa merits a five star rating! Tim and Ida Hedges
“This was our forth stay at Le Capanne and it has never disappointed us”
This villa and the location ticks all the boxes for my wife and I. Le Capanne is beautiful, quiet, clean and cozy. This all made better by the hospitality of Franco and Gina, both genuine host.
“Brilliant, beautiful peaceful with superb hosts”
This is a beautiful place. It is quiet and peaceful. Good walks, pool, jacuzzi and spectacular views. Gina and Franco do all within their power to make the stay comfortable . Gina's treats are a welcome surprise and Franco brews good red wine. Thoroughly recommended.
We have just come back from what is probably the best holiday we have had. The villa Le Capanne is situated down a track from the delightful village of Montecastelli Pisano (perfectly accessible by car). We were met by the owners Gina and Franco who were the most friendly, helpful hosts you can imagine. They come every morning to clean the hot tub and pool and if you want to be left alone they will be very discreet and disappear quietly. On the other hand, if you like to chat and have any questions about the area or need tips for day trips or help with booking a restaurant they are there to help you. It is entirely up to you. Gina also makes lovely cakes and her Tiramisu is delicious! The villa (a Tuscan farm house cleverly and tastefully renovated) is completely private, shielded from view by well kept gardens but with lovely views across the valley and the sunsets are beautiful. The pool and hot tub are wonderful either for a relaxing day at the house or to revive you after a day of sight-seeing and there is plenty of grass around for kicking a football or playing badminton. There is a barbeque area and beautiful shady areas for eating out or relaxing. It is absolutely perfect for children, our two can't wait to go back next year! Inside the villa there is everything you need to make your stay comfortable (a well equipped kitchen with an enormous stove, washing machine, hairdryer etc and of course WiFi). The area around Montecastelli Pisano is lovely with some very interesting geothermal areas (there is a museum or geothermal energy at Larderello), Tuscan villages and towns and access to all the usual Tuscan sites (Pisa, Florence, Siena ...). All in all we had a wonderful time and I cannot recommend Le Capanne enough. Thank you to Gina and Franco who made our stay so perfect. Jennifer, Georg, Viktoria and alexander.
“So peaceful and relaxing”
Spent a week here at the beginning of October and have never felt so relaxed. The property is in a lovely location with great views. The hot tub is amazing and we spent lots of time in it. Gina and Franco the owners are such wonderful people and could not have done more for us. Regular surprises left outside the door e.g. cake, eggs, wine and bread. Can't recommend this enough. Volterra was our favourite place to visit but on the whole we relaxed and enjoyed the isolation and lack of noise from anyone or anything.
“We enjoyed every single minute and will come back again.”
Owners, Gina and Franco, are very lovely person! House is kept very clean. Pool and whirlpool was cleaned every early morning. Owners surprised us every day with fantastic food or a bootle of vine! We have enjoyed privacy, silence of the nature, beautiful house with pool and fantastic view and to have met Gina and Franco. grazie mille, Linn, Lia, Martina e angelo
