"A special place away from home"

The Bianchi family makes every effort to make your stay a warm one. Gianni's parents have wine and cake on your arrival and evrything is just waiting to be lived in. Fresh sheets a house that is clean and welcoming and they are there when you need them.Maruca as well as Gianni speak English and have charts and maps of spots to visit.
Centrally located you are in the country and all small villages as well as towns are minutes away just waiting to be dicovered. If you want big cities, that too is just a stones throw away.Cortona a mountain town, Arezzo with all its antiques, Florence and Sienna and then small spots like Laterina just waiting to be enjoyed.
Don't want to eat out or just be lazy , a full stocked kitchen and markets to buy yummy food and come home and prepare a meal. You may have to walk it off but why not when you can sample the bes twines Tuscany has to offer. Come its a wonderful spot still undescovered which makes it a jewel.

"Excellent location, villa and hosts!"

We loved our stay at Cappannelle! We were about 3 hours late arriving (due to various problems) but our hosts waited patiently for us without complaint. They made us very welcome and the villa was lovely. There was a bottle of their own Chianti red wne and home-made cake waitign for us on our arival too!

The location is off the beaten track and yet close to the town so its easy to walk into town for shopping or eating out at the local restaurants (we highly recommend Jair, about 15 mins wal from the villa). We stayed in the main part of the villa (there is a 'Love Nest' on the ground floor suitable for couples). The three bedrooms are very nice and there are two bathrooms (each with a shower, toilet, bidet and sink). The beds are firm (due to being new), worth bearing in mind if you are used to soft matteresses.

The kitchen comes with everything you need except a washing machine. There is a laundrette in town but we washed everything in a sink and dried it outside on the clother maiden provided. In the hot sun the clothes dried very quickly.

There is a TV (flat-screen) in the lounge but when we were there reception was patchy. Fortunately it improved in the evenings so maybe it was related to atmospherics; not sure. As we were there during the Olympics 2012 we liked to catch-up with what was happening in the Games, especially with Team GB!

The patio is large, with a 3-seater swing seat with shade and there is a dining table and chairs (wth separate brolly for some shade). there is low lighitng for the evenings too. Parking is plentiful in the garden area and there is a BBQ available. There isn't a swimming pool (sadly as far as my daughter and wife were concerned!) but the hosts have negotiated a small discount at a local hotel (€5 each plus small charge for loungers and sun shade). Its about 1/2 hour walk or 5 minutes by car from the villa.

Localy there are nice walks you can do, though its best to set out early before it get too hot (at least in July/August! There are lovely places to visit within a short distance (either by bus, bike or car) and we highly recommend Laterina, Arezzon and Cortona. Further afield there are Siena, Perugia, Florence, Sam Gimignao and Monteriggioni, though a car is a must for these.

The locals are very friendly and helpful too and even with the little Italian we knew it was fairly easy to get by. Some local speak a smattering of English too and are happy to try it out and help!

Finally, we can't praise the hosts enough. As well their warm welcome, as were were staying a week at least, they had us to a meal at Gianni's parents (who own the vineyard and live 500m away), where we met the family and enjoyed some real Italian home cooking and hospitality!

Also, due to a mix-up back in the UK, my drving license did not arrive before we left for Italy. This really messed up our car hire. To cut a long story short, Gianni helped enormously with the use of his pc at his office and also with faxing the UK etc. As a result I got my license in time to finish our holiday with the car we had hired. Thank you so much Gianni!
