B&B Capannetti could have everything to be the perfect bed & breakfast, starting with its location in the secluded Vicolo Capannetti, a narrow pedestrian lane where absolute quiet reigns. You are a few minutes' walk from the town centre, but you could as well be in a country hamlet in the 19th century. If you have a car, being at the edge of the town centre but slightly out of it is even more convenient than staying at the very heart of the town, because parking in the nearby streets is easy and free.
The 19th-century two-storey house and its small internal garden are cosy, well cared for, furnished and decorated with taste by Claudia, the friendly and helpful owner. The ground-floor rooms have even their private entrance.
Despite all these qualities, a few details should be better cared for. The ground-floor rooms have no shutters, only white curtains that let the light flood the bedroom and inevitably wake you up early in the morning. In our bathroom, the shower box was particularly narrow and uncomfortable and it even lacked a shelf. On our last night, when we tried to switch the small TV set on for the first time, we realized that it was useless because the DVB remote control was nowhere to be found; actually, we didn't really need to watch TV, but if we had wanted to, we wouldn't have been able to. Finally, a Wi-Fi connection would have been welcome.
All in all, B&B Capannetti is not the perfect place it could be, but, considering the beautiful house, the convenient location and the fair price – not to mention the good breakfast, optional but worth the extra €5 per person –, the value for money is good.
One last piece of advice: Vicolo Capannetti is really hard to find, even with a GPS device, because some of them would have you get there from Via San Mama, which actually has no access to Vicolo Capannetti. The only access is from Via Ravegnana, so you should set your destination on your GPS device as the corner between Via Ravegnana and Vicolo Capannetti.
