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.
