Le Capanne is located an easy 15-20 minute drive from beautiful Volterra in Tuscany. We booked the villa eighteen months ago, as a base for a family holiday in this special part of the world. Sometimes expectations and delivery are not the same, but not this time. La Capanne was everything my Wife and I expected when we booked it, plus more. We were a party of eight adults and five grand children. Everyone had a room, and there was one to spare. Things like a semi commercial kitchen, indoor spa, beautiful outdoor pool, views over the Tuscan landscape, middle of an olive orchard etc. etc. all added to what we all regarded as a great Tuscan experience. If you are looking for polished marble and gold taps, La Capanne is probably not for you. However, if you want a genuine Tuscan experience, in all respects, then seriously consider it.
Now, to the owners. Dario and Vera are a young couple, who, to use an Australian term, having a red hot go. There is nothing a guest could ask for that they will not walk over broken glass to deliver. On our last night in their beautiful villa we had them in to cook pizza for us, in their genuine pizza house. Dario’s Mum and Dad were part of the team, and if it was possible to give a score of 11/10 , that would be what we all agreed was appropriate.
The best recommendation we could give is that if we came back to Volterra, this is where we would stay,
