“Great base to explore Florence & Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

La Capannacia was a great base to explore Florence & surrounding Tuscany. Staying in the country surrounded by olive trees, grape vines & classic Tuscan views but only a short Tramvia ride away from central Florence plus ready access by road to explore the Chianti region, Siena, Pisa & lovely Luca etc. We spent six weeks here, it was so easy to visit Florence and explore at a leisurely pace. It was also easy to catch the train as we did to visit Rome for the weekend and visit a friend in the Alps with just a tiny suitcase.
The Bini family are lovely and available if you need help or advise. We loved their Chianti Classico, olive oil & soaps and the fresh produce that was provided.
The villa has lovely modern kitchen & bathroom blended with traditional furniture. Though we went as a couple and had the villa to ourselves, it would be a great spot for several families, each with their own area within the villa but a shared garden with BBQ & hot tub.

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.
