My partner and I are from Sydney, Australia and had decided to take a 3 month trip, mostly through Europe and our stay at La Capannuccia was one of the absolute highlights of our trip.
We had hired a car and drove from Rome and actually had no intentions of staying in Chianti but got charmed by the quaintness of Castellina. After scouring the streets for a nice B&B we noticed that the Lonely Planet recommended this little B&B, hidden off the roads. Boy are we glad we listened.
The owners, Mario and Daniella were incredibly lovely and took us in, despite having no prior reservations. We got in in the late afternoon and they were kind enough to offer the option of paying for a home cooked meal, which we gratefully took (the weather in Italy at the time was not so crash hot). We asked for traditional Tuscan meals and we were not disappointed.
Our stay for the night was so lovely that our original intention of staying one night went out the window and we booked an additional night. We asked for another home cooked meal on the second night (with a recommended Chianti wine) and amazingly this surpassed the previous days. So much so that I had to ask for their chickpea soup recipe before I left! =)
The rooms were so cosy and we had amazing views over the valley. The owners were so hospitable with suggestions on areas to visit, providing us maps and having a friendly chat whenever we were in the house.
Thank you for an amazing couple of days.
