We spent an amazing week at this wonderful villa. Dario, Vera, Fabi and Giancarlo made our stay so memorable. The food was delicious, the house was beautiful, the scenery second to none. We had a very casual wedding ceremony that was made so much better by their attention to details that were never requested. Totally above and beyond. We will be back.
We had the most epic stay at this beautiful Tuscan villa. Nestled just outside the charming city of Volterra, La Capanne is the perfect place for larger groups, events and/or weddings.
We were celebrating a dual 40th birthday event with 15 adults. All 9 rooms have their own bathroom and the common spaces are amazing! 2 HUGE dining rooms, a comfortable living room, a well-stocked kitchen, outdoor dining space, a beautiful pool, hot tub, a pizza oven, gorgeous grounds and the most amazing view. We even got to hang with 2 local (super-friendly) farm cats who made us feel right at home.
The owner/host Dario was lovely to work with while planning our stay. He speaks very good English and returns emails right away. He also runs a catering company so he provided a wonderful welcome dinner and breakfast for us each morning (for a nominal extra charge). His mother Fabi cooked us the best meal we had in Tuscany, nothing like an Italian mother's home cooking! Dario also had suggestions for local tours and they were just a great as the villa (see my review for Tuscan Tour). He was always available if we needed anything - top notch service all the way.
The pricing for this lovely villa was totally reasonable. I searched the internet far and wide before landing at La Capanne, and boy do I feel lucky. Our stay (literally) could not have been any better.
Thank you Dario and Fabi for an absolutely amazing time in Tuscany.

Well, sometimes we think the house is the important item, well we had a great stay on a large home that has been redone recently, but the best part was the owner, you could ask anything and they would be pleased to help you, I mean anything, restaurants after they were closed, wine tours, artist to come home and do alabaster sculptures, truffle walks, this was really what made this stay memorable, not only the Tuscany views, the great food or the large home, but also the service we received, it was really outstanding.
