Me and my friend both travelled from England for a week's holiday at Villa La Cappella this August, and what a fantastic time we had.!!
We booked a very late flight from London to Italy and arrived at Pisa Airport at 10pm and after a short train ride to Empoli train station, we were greeted by a member of the Villa La Cappella team for our short pre-arranged transfer to the hotel.
At breakfast on our first morning, we were very warmly welcomed by both the Italian owners, Sonia and Patrizio Tinalli, which really made the start to our week.
There were many highlight to our trip and receiving a hot air balloon ride with Patrizio over the amazing Tuscany landscape was one of them...But what i enjoyed most were the wonderful meals each evening at the hotel, as this is when you get to meet the other guests and engage in a rich evening of conversation, of culture and if you are every lucky enough to meet the most funniest Germany man alive - Matthias Becker, then a night of pure laugher.
This hotel might not be for everyone, but if you are looking for a real, true and honestly priced Italian experience then i couldn't recommend Hotel Villa La Cappella high enough. However, if you are looking for a soulless chain hotel, then this place is not for you.
The reason i keep coming back to this hotel, and the reason i keep bringing all my friends to stay here when we visit Italy is that you always receive a 100% authentic Italian experience, everytime, guaranteed!!
