A PERFECT ROMANTIC GETAWAY!

La Cappana is a beautiful detached restored barn standing in the grounds of the Casale San Frediano estate. Quiet and peaceful, Casale San Frediano is set in beautiful Tuscan countryside with incredible views of the rolling hills. Its location provides easy access to Florence, Siena and Pisa (all within 1 hour) and the stunning hilltop towns of San Gimignano and Volterra. Whilst a perfect honeymoon/romantic retreat for two it can accomodate four having two additional sofa beds in the lounge area.

La Cappana has a swimming pool (shared with two other apartments), gardens, solarium, covered gazebo and outside dining areas. A barbeque is provided for 'al fresco' dining.

The very spacious house has a large lounge area, mezzanine floor with large double bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and family sized bathroom with shower.

Casale San Frediano is set in its own grounds surrounded by gardens and its own olive groves. There is ample private free parking. It is accessed via an unpaved road (common to rural areas of Tuscany) which has the occasional bump and pot hole. It is therefore not suitable for vehicles with very low ground clearance (for example sports cars). Its rural location provides the perfect spot for relaxing and venturing out to enjoy an area steeped in history and with stunning views.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is steeped in history with many beautiful towns and cities to visit. Nearby Florence (about an hour's drive or by rail from nearby Poggibonsi or Certaldo) is home to the world famous Uffizi museum, The Duomo and 'Ponte Vecchio' bridge. This former capital of Italy is packed with historic buildings and beautiful statues can be found in many of the open squares.

Historic Siena is home to the 'Palio' horse race every July and is less than an hours drive. You can stroll through the winding cobbled streets taking in the fabulous atmosphere this historic town has to offer. There are many designer shops, restaraunts and public gardens to enjoy.

The area is famous for its wines - amongst the best are Chianti and the DOCG 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano' white wine.

The Tuscan countryside is beautiful and the changing light has inspired painters over the ages. The climate is warm throughout the spring and autumn - summers are hotter but are tempered by cooling light breezes.

San Gimignano

San Gimignano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its famous stone towers look over the cobbled streets and paths that wind through the centre of this charming Tuscan town. There is ample parking and exploring the squares and gardens within the city walls reveals small shops selling local food specialities and wines. There are regular festivals and further information and photos can be found on the San Gimignano Official Website at; www.sangimignano.com

The medieval town of Volterra is equally close by. Sitting high on a hill overlooking Podere Torricchi the town was a film set for the recent hit 'New Moon' - the second of the Twighlight Trilogy. There are many beautiful shops selling local 'Alabaster' and the views towards the coast are simply breathtaking.
