“Lovely Tuscan Hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2008

This review is overdue but thought better late than never as we would highly recommend La Capannuccia.

We stayed there in September 2007 as the last stop on our Tuscan holiday. La Cappannucia is a lovely Tuscan farmhouse and our room was both comfortable and well-appointed. The house is set in a picturesque valley surrounded by Tuscan hills, secluded and wih a real sense of peace about it - there are comfortable loungers overlooking the valley and we enjoyed sitting there in the evenings with wine and cheese as the daylight slowly faded. I also had a lot of fun on the twisty-turny drive down through the woods from the main road.

The location was superb for exploring the Chianti area and Daniella gave us some great recommendations for dining in and around Castellina-in-Chianti, especially once she found that we were both foodies. We also dined in one night and had a delicious Tuscan meal - Daniella is an excellent cook and her chickpea soup lives on in our memories!

what a wonderful location! Came here after Rome and Florence and the tranquility was amazing! Really nice hosts and wonderful rooms - never had such a good nights sleep.

Perfect location for exploring Tuscany: we went to a few vineyards, walks around and ate in the local town, went to Siena and San Gimignano - I recommend them all.

There was only one other couple staying when we were who we met at Breakfast and we all agreed that this place was great and we wished we had spent more time there

Nothing could have prepared my wife and I for the ultimate relaxation of Locanda La Capannuccia, and its wonderful hosts.

We took advantage of the offer to have dinner prepared for us the night we arrived. It was delicious, and just the beginning of our excellent stay in the Tuscan countryside. The included breakfast was just as great.

Loved our room, with views of the surrounding hills. It was very clean, well decorated, and the bed was heaven.

We liked this place so much, that we asked to stay an additional night. We'd have stayed even longer if we didn't have further plans. It's a great home base for Tuscan day trips to cities such as Siena, San Gimignano, Florence, Castellina, etc., etc.

It was fun just driving around the surrounding countryside visiting vineyards for wine/oil and just getting lost, and found again.

I'm a little late in posting this review, but I wouldn't hesitate to send my best friends here! It was by far our favourite place to stay on our honeymoon.
