“Everything we hoped for... and much more!”
Reviewed 22 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and our dream was to gather our entire family for a vacation in Tuscany. We spent hours on the phone with Vera planning each detail of our trip. When the 20 of us — ages 1 to 75 — arrived at LeCapanne we were blown away. The views were astounding, the villa was perfect, with a spa, large gathering areas, a fabulous pool, and space for everyone. Each bedroom had its bathroom and each room was different. Vera and Dario made us all feel at home and helped us arrange everything we wanted to do. Fabiola and Giancarlo cooked for us each night, teaching us to make gnocchi and pizza. The food was outstanding and our anniversary party couldn’t have been more perfect. The presentation of the food was incredible and it tasted even better than it looked. Our anniversary celebration was more than we could have hoped for and Vera and Dario were the best possible hosts.

“Dream-like "Tuscany" place for a perfect birthday celebration with the family”
Reviewed 6 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Vera & Dario and her team were perfect hosts and organised pizza party, brunch & birthday dinner on occasion of a family gathering to celebrate my wife's 50th anniversary. Very well appointed rooms, a mix of Tuscan charme and contemporary comfort, with outdoor pool and indoor jacuzzi and perfectly equipped kitchen. Nice touches like personalised room numbers with names of the guests. It was exactly what we were looking for (but better in a number of points). There are always some small things that could be improved, and we had an issue with the aircon, but Vera provided a temporary solution, and altogether, it was just brilliant. Thanks to the entire team!

“Best vacation ever”

We spent an amazing week at this wonderful villa. Dario, Vera, Fabi and Giancarlo made our stay so memorable. The food was delicious, the house was beautiful, the scenery second to none. We had a very casual wedding ceremony that was made so much better by their attention to details that were never requested. Totally above and beyond. We will be back.

“The best Tuscany has to offer!”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had the most epic stay at this beautiful Tuscan villa. Nestled just outside the charming city of Volterra, La Capanne is the perfect place for larger groups, events and/or weddings.

We were celebrating a dual 40th birthday event with 15 adults. All 9 rooms have their own bathroom and the common spaces are amazing! 2 HUGE dining rooms, a comfortable living room, a well-stocked kitchen, outdoor dining space, a beautiful pool, hot tub, a pizza oven, gorgeous grounds and the most amazing view. We even got to hang with 2 local (super-friendly) farm cats who made us feel right at home.

The owner/host Dario was lovely to work with while planning our stay. He speaks very good English and returns emails right away. He also runs a catering company so he provided a wonderful welcome dinner and breakfast for us each morning (for a nominal extra charge). His mother Fabi cooked us the best meal we had in Tuscany, nothing like an Italian mother's home cooking! Dario also had suggestions for local tours and they were just a great as the villa (see my review for Tuscan Tour). He was always available if we needed anything - top notch service all the way.

The pricing for this lovely villa was totally reasonable. I searched the internet far and wide before landing at La Capanne, and boy do I feel lucky. Our stay (literally) could not have been any better.

Thank you Dario and Fabi for an absolutely amazing time in Tuscany.

“Great stay, amazing owner”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Well, sometimes we think the house is the important item, well we had a great stay on a large home that has been redone recently, but the best part was the owner, you could ask anything and they would be pleased to help you, I mean anything, restaurants after they were closed, wine tours, artist to come home and do alabaster sculptures, truffle walks, this was really what made this stay memorable, not only the Tuscany views, the great food or the large home, but also the service we received, it was really outstanding.
