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

What an amazing experience my husband and I had at the beautiful Capovento. The location is wondrous. The views breathtaking. The owners incredibly helpful. The suite with the spa was a true delight. The meals delicious. It is truly an experience not to be missed if you are visiting Chianti. We arrived at the villa after driving down this wonderful... 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.

Very beautiful property with a panoramic outdoor swimming pool and great local food. The price for 1 night is not cheap, but the service is exceptional. I think there are only 6 guest rooms or so, and from the moment you arrive you feel expected and welcome. The owners are friendly, helpful yet discrete, and speak very good English. The... More

Very good little hotel, in the middle of nowhere. 2,5 kilometres from a little village in Tuscany. With a nice pool in the garden. It's quiet and clean, with a very good staff. They have a lot of local spirits, wine, tuscan beer etc.

Ettore and Stella are running this place which was originally built for family´s summer place and later renovated to serve the B&B purposes. Service is very friendly. Excellent dinner with daily changing menu from local ingredients is served... More

We have today returned home from 1 weeks stay at Capovento and we had a wonderful stay Stella and Ettore are brilliant hosts and helped us with anything we needed. When we first arrived we thought that this may not be a place we would enjoy as we wanted to do things like cycle to the neighbouring vineyards and basically... More

When we arrived at Calpovento, the owner Stella told us that her husband Ettore was out looking for some guest who got lost. Now that is customer service. Through out our stay there, we felt like home. Delicious organic breakfast, tasteful dinner, and quiet home in a beautiful tranquil setting. Ettore and Stella tried everything they could do to make... More

We can't wait to come back to this wonderful place. Don't miss the dinners prepared by Ettore. This is the perfect place to relax and to truly experience Tuscany. It is a good base for day trips in the lovely villages of the area.

This B&B hidden away in a forrest just outside Castellina is a true gem. Kind and service minded owners, charming decor with tuscan antiques and style and the whole place makes your stress levels go down immediately. Small restaurant in the house serving local specialities, Nice lounge chairs outside where you can have a drink before dinner or relax with... More
