“"Delightful stay and Tuscany experience"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2011

My partner and I stayed at Villa La Cappella for a week in September (2011) and had a wonderful time and experience. I'm suprise about the negative review written on Setp. 19th. Actually we stayed there at the same time of those couples and had a totaly different experience and the staff were very helpful and pleasant to us! Oh and by the way, the owners ARE Italians family. So just ignored the previous review!!! As Canadians traverlers, we were very happy to be in this beautiful location and nice facilities. We had booked the room-appartment which allowed us to cook some meals. The kitchen was well equipt (gaz stove, electric oven, good size fridge) dishes and pots. We loved to cook at night and enjoy our happy hour in the garden and looking at the sun set. Based on European standard, the appartment was very spacious and comfortable (big bedroom and bathroom). Ok, about the mosquito thing... True, there were mosuitos since they are no screens in the windows. It was a bit anyoing since we didn't have a net, but we simply slept the windows shut at nite to avoid the problem and turn on the ceiling fan. We found the location perfect since it was closed to all attractions (Siena, St-Giminiano, Vinci, Chianti...). Patrizio was our dedicated tour guide! He took the time every morning to sketch us out our itinary for the day and pointed out nice places to visit. We planed to rent the Vintage Mini Austin for the week thinking it would add something "special" to our Tuscany experience. It was fun for the first couple days (got a lot of attention from people!!), but didn't last long since it broke on the 3rd day!! So I would say, the Mini is a nice experienced for a day, but not for a full week (the car is not full comfort)! I have to say that Patrizio was very nice to accomodate us for the rest of the week by renting us their or his sister's cars. We ate couple nights at the Villa restaurant. I have to say that it was the best meals we had in our entire trip!! (...except for the meals I cooked !! :-)). The diner at night was part of the nice experince at the villa since the guess sat all together (long table) and exchange our daily adventures! As for the Internet (wi-fi), I wasn't able to get reception in our room (even with an adaptor), but we had access to a computer at the reception (but even there it was sometime slow reception). But hey, you don't go to Tuscany to surf on the Net!! All that to say, overall (with some plus and minus) our experience at Villa La Cappella was very nice, very enjoyable and positive. Remember, this is a family business (even Patrizio and Sonia's mother works in the kitchen, and she's 83 years old!!!) not a chain hotel!!! Those people work very hard everyday to make this place going and to please all their guess. I would not hesitate to go back again and recommand this hotel to our family and friends! Enjoy your trip!

Room Tip: Bring a mosquito net or ask for a room with screens on windows. We found the front road a bit noisy...

We spent 3 nights in this location with 8 other friends (4 couples). We had to sleep in this area as we had a wedding nearby. The Villa is a nice house with a decent garden and a pool. It really looks like an old but well maintained Italian mansion. The rooms are spacious but have minimum comfort, no fan, A/C and small bathroom with a bathtub. Not much to say on the residence which is nice. The extremely negative point came from the staff and owners. We have traveled for the past 3 years on an annual basis in Tuscany, only sleeping in Agriturismos (villa like this one) and we had by far the worse experience with them. Where in other locations we had friendly contacts and felt at home, Villa la Cappella seems more interested in your money rather than make you feel at home. Everything is extra (ie you have to pay for everything, extra towel for the pool for example) and prices are extremely high (50% more than other locations we have been to) for everything (food, wines - especially when you know what it costs in other locations). I guess you should definitely avoid this location if you are looking for the real Italian experience (the owners are not Italian). For all of us who are going to be in the same region next year, we have already found another location to sleep and will definitely never go back there.

Room Tip: some rooms have a 'mosquito net', you should definitely ask for one as the house is massivel...

Small and charming hotel at a wonderful location. Staff is very friendly and will do anything to help you. The dinner menu is fixed but we have never been disappointed. Spacious rooms in typical Tuscan style.

Me and my wife have just return from our second stay at Villa La Cappella and we have found that our second stay was even better that the first.

As always, the service at Villa La Cappella is second to none and the food we had in the restaurant every night was totally amazing, traditional Tuscan cooking.

This time around, I got the chance to experience one of the wine tours with the owner Patrizio and on return to the hotel, Patrizio suggested a sample of the wine we taste at the vineyard with each dish we had.

As always, all of the staff at the hotel are amazing and I am already planning my next time back to Tuscany for 2012 and for sure I will be booking my stay at Villa La Cappella.

Regards

Andy and Terri Grant

We stayed at Villa La Cappella with a small group for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is run by Patrizio his partner Diana and Patrizio's sister Sonia. Wonderful people who made our stay a home from home. The position is just out of town with wonderful views, secure parking and a quiet outlook. We ate every evening at the hotel and enjoyed some lovely food. The hotel is run with a family feel but they also have a small number of staff who are all charming and welcoming. If you are looking for a high end modern hotel with waiters at your every whim then probably this is not for you, but if you like your holidays quiet and relaxed with a personal touch then this hotel is a real pleasure. It is perfectly situated to visit all the wonderful nearby places, such as Florence, Lucca and Siena, but a car is a must of course. We will be back at the first opportunity!

Very friendly and helpful proprietors. Nice property with a good swimming pool. The good things were really good; some minor comments though. No wifi in all rooms, only set menu at set times on some days; I don't like that on the holidays. On the plus side is that the traditional Tuscan food is very good. The shower is amazing; you have to experience that yourself!
