“Beautiful Tuscana”
Reviewed 8 October 2009

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.

Initially locating Hotel Le Capanne is a bit confusing, but once you find the dirt road that takes you there....it is well worth the drive. Actually, Arezzo is close by and we easily found our way back and forth, but it is necessary to have a car.
The temperature at the end of August was in the mid nineties and the well maintained swimming pool was such a delight at the end of a very hot day of sightseeing.
The highlight was the outstanding dinner on the patio at their restaurant, Angolo. The chef is a nineteen year old gem. When I asked Stefano where he got his receipes, he said each course is his own original. The dinner was one of the best meals we had during our vacation.
In my opinion, La Capanne is a small hotel rather than a Bed and Breakfast. Parking, breakfast and internet were included in the hotel rate.. The grounds are well maintained, and the staff were all very nice and helpful.
As we peacefully ate our breakfast on the patio in the morning, we watched a shepherd walking by with his huge flock of sheep just outside the gate of the property. Coming from the city, that certainly was an added treat.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel le Capanne after reading trip advisor reviews. Words cannot describe how unique this place is. It is a little hard to find but once you get there it is wonderful!! We
e-mailed the hotel and promptly received answers to our questions. When I got there, there was a letter from the receptionist to make sure everything was fine. The people who work there are so nice. We stayed in a room with a bigger bathroom which I would recommend. The farmhouse is very large with many areas to sit and relax from the large breakfast area with pool table to the library/tv room and the two upstairs huge sitting areas outside the rooms. It is beautifully decorated. Wireless internet worked great from my room.They also have a computer room with two computers for guests to use free of charge.
We ate at the restaurant on site and had a delicious italian meal. The farmhouse has a pool, and some private eating areas inside and outside which would be so nice during the summer.
If you tour Italy I would definitely make Hotel le Capanne a priority for part of your trip! It was our favorite place that we stayed and it was nice to have such a great restaurant on site. We will definitely return when we go back to Italy.

We stayed at Hotel La Capanne for three nights in early May, 2008. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The hotel is situated amongst green fields approximately 5 kilometers from Arezzo. The hotel is an old farmhouse, beautifully renovated. The bathrooms are spacious, the rooms pleasantly decorated with wooden beam ceilings and old wooden doors, the breakfast delicious and in the breakfast area a huge pool table, plus free internet for the hotel's guests.

Adjacent to the hotel the tratoria "Locanda dei Pilli" is definitely a magnet not only for the hotel's guests but for locals as well so reservations are absolutely required. The food is absolutely divine - homemade pasta, Florentine steaks and many more creative cuisine suggestions - great selection of Tuscan wines and desserts. We had dinner there twice and both times we were greeted with prosecco wine and a small plate of delicacies. Coming from a Mediterranean country (Greece) where the cooking ingredients are the same and the techniques one can say are similar I can definitely testify to the superb abilities of the Locanda's Chef!

Le Capanne is "un tesoro piccolo" a little treasure! This beautifully restored farmhouse, with only 16 rooms, is the ONLY place to stay in the Arezzo area! It is the perfect combination of rustic and modern. Le Capanne is surrounded by farmland just outside of Arezzo. You can drive easily to Florence, Siena or other Tuscan hill towns. A wonderful and charming spot to return to after traveling all day. The owner & staff are lovely people and so helpful! And right next to the hotel is an amazing restaurant, Locanda Dei Pilli. In a country known for great food, this is, by far, one of the best restaurants that I have found. Honestly, if you are fortunate enough to vacation in Tuscany, don't limit yourself to Chianti...when there are treasures to be found just a short distance away!

  • Liked — Beautiful rooms, rural but convenient location, pleasant and helpful staff
  • Disliked — Nothing! I loved it!
