Have just returned from La Capannaccia, The family did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The property was extremely clean, well equipped and good quality. The garden was beautiful and private. This is not the quietest place in the Tuscan hills, this is a working farm that has converted much of the house and out buildings to private residences. Due to the temperatures in the summer, people rise early to do their cleaning etc before the heat rises.
The owners produce their own wine, olive oil, vinegar and soap which they are proud to share with you - it was all well received, and we purchased further supplies at good rates. The early morning delivery of fresh apricots was particularly welcomed - beautiful.
The property is just outside the small town of Scandiccii, which currently has the only tramlines into Florence - there is free parking, take approx 20 mins and costs 1.20 euros each way and is very safe.
