Our stay at Le Capanne was truly a beautiful experience. It took us a while to find...even with our GPS...the signs for the hotel are quite small and it's down a dirt road so we kept thinking...surely it can't be down here. But, it was...and what a charmer. The ladies at the front desk, Christina and Gabriella went out of their way to help us plan our daily excursions to so many neighboring towns....Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Chianti, Cortona, Panzano, Colle Val D'este, Volterra...and even more than I can remember. Their advice and suggestions made our trip so special. One night we came back to our hotel very tired and instead of dining at a restaurant, we went to the local supermarket and bought wine, cheeses, meats, olives and breads and asked if there was a place we could enjoy our impromptu dinner. Gabriella allowed us to use the area where breakfast is usually served and even brought us candles so we could enjoy our dinner by candlelight. It doesn't get better than that...it was one of our most memorable meals in Italy. The hotel itself is a 1,500 year old farmhouse and the only issue we had while there was with the shower pressure, but I guess this is to be expected in such an old dwelling. Also, another big issue in basically all of Tuscany when we were there (Sept/Oct) was mosquitos. The weather was unusually warm (mid 80's)...which is probably what brought them all out. But, overall our stay was amazing...we have so many wonderful memories...of Le Capanne and all the people who work there. They made us feel like family and we can't wait to return.
