I feel sad that i can't visit Arezzo and hotel Le Capanne once again during Christmas and i just went back to read the Trip advisor's reviews .
We are a family from Greece that stayed at this hotel for 6 nights during Christmas 2008 . We are frequent travelers during the year (within Greece) and quite often abroad as well. We have stayed in Luxury hotels and in B&Bs as well.
We will always keep our stay in Le Capanne in our hearts and we have recommended it to all of our friends, Christmas is not the perfect time for Tuscany and the hotel didn't have other visitors . But everyone in this hotel tried to make our visit unforgettable. Just to mention that Locanda Dei Pilli (what a food in this restaurant !!!!) was fully reserved twice with locals , they opened the Osteria , cooked specially for us and the owner arranged a dinner for his friends there as well in order for us not to feel isolated .
If you have a car i strongly recommend this hotel . The building is very very nice , the family room given to us (2 room appartment) comfortable , the food is perfect , the hospitality is the best.
You can easily visit Sienna, Cortona , Florence . We will certainly come back.
