The first word that comes to mind when I think about Capovento is graceful. This is because the property has an inherent grace to it and the service provided by Stella and Ettore is always provided in a graceful way. We were lucky enough to stay there for three nights in June. The property is located a couple kilometers off... More

We spent 6 nights based in Capovento while we relaxed and toured the local area. From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome, as other comments have reflected, Stella and Ettore are fantastic hosts. The location and setting were beautiful - uninterrupted views, amazing infinity pool and not another hotel for miles. We stayed in the King room... More

We spent one night in this secluded agriturismo and will definitely be coming back. The place is situated along a gravel road about a half hour walk from Castelina in Chianti and has fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside. The owners were lovely and helpful and the food was amazing! Would definitely recommend!

From the arrival, we felt very welcomed by the hosts, Stella and Ettore. The room is furnished tastefully and terrace is also relaxing with views with cipresso on the hill. We stayed three nights and visited some of wineries and lovely little villages closeby, according to tips that Stella gave us. Enjoyed local foods from the menu of the day... More

Villa di capovento is an authentic Chianti aurigtismo. Picturesque location, sweet room with balcony, quaint and small Tuscan farmstay. Lovely staff, beautiful food for dinner and breakfast. This Is a great base to explore the Chianti region.

This for me was a true Tuscan experience. The location is beautiful on the top of a hill with typical Tuscan views, especially from the swimming pool! It's quiet and peacful. The rooms are really nice. The owners also cook the dinner which is good quality and good value. I highly recommend this place for laid back holidays.

It has been a long time since we have been here on our honeymoon. When I think back of our trip through Italy, this comes to my mind first (and we stayed in more than 10 hotels during our three-weeks-roadtrip)! The rooms are just fantastic - not very big, but so cozy, well appointed and clean. Nice little balcony. I... More

We highly recommend this hotel first because of its location, secondly because the hosts (a lovely couple) do there utmost to keep guests happy and obviously being in chianti region the selection of ham, cheese and wine make it the cherry on the cake.
