Paganico Villa Rental Photos and Description
6 double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms - sleeps 12
Located in the heart of the Maremma, in southern Tuscany, Le Capannacce sits alone on a hilltop with expansive open views of wooded valleys and olive groves. The house itself is an old 'podere' or farmhouse that dates back to the early 18th century, now lovingly restored with many of the original details preserved. There are six spacious double bedrooms, each with bathroom en suite. It has a large kitchen, two covered terraces, three sitting rooms, a dining room, outbuildings and a swimming pool. Both floors of the house boast beautiful wooden beam ceilings over 14 feet high.
Outside at the back of the house, under the shade of a vine-covered pergola sits a long marble dining table that looks out onto expansive views of the countryside. French doors lead out all along the ground floor of the house to the back terrace and the field beyond. A small terrace off the kitchen with table and chairs provides a shaded spot for breakfast in the early morning. Two large fireplaces and a central heating system keep the house warm during cooler months.
Wireless Internet is available and rental comes with the services of a daily maid.
Two hectares of private garden surround the house, dotted with potted flowers, an olive grove, and a cypress-lined drive.
The outbuildings house a large covered terrace adjacent and open to the pool, and an old bread oven, ideal for barbecues.
The swimming pool measures 10m x 6m. Pool furniture includes comfortable chairs for relaxing in the shade with loungers poolside.
This is an old stone house which stays wonderfully cool in summer, provided the shutters are closed in the bedrooms during the heat of the day.

Why Owner chose Paganico
When our parents discovered Le Capannacce in the 1980s, it had been uninhabited for more than half a century. They fell in love with this overgrown old ruin and bought the place while we were still living in England. They spent years restoring the house and outbuildings, carefully preserving many of the original details. Thanks to all of their passion and dedication, our friends and family have been enjoying this very special place for almost thirty years. In order to be able to maintain it, we work hard to rent it out every year. Nothing makes us happier than being able to share Le Capannacce with others. This is a real home filled with our beautiful things and that's what makes it stand apart from many other rental properties.
What makes this villa unique
The house and garden sits on an enormous private estate, home to the local landowners, their tenants and farmworkers. One of the loveliest things about your stay here is the private, peaceful environment that the location affords, and the ability to roam at will across the hills, valleys and woodlands of the estate on many amazing walks that all begin outside our front door.
The location itself is unrivaled in terms of access to a plethora of sights and landmarks. Within 45 minutes or less, guests can be surveying the Apennine mountain range from the summit of Monte Amiata or lounging on the beautiful beaches of the Maremma coastline. The ability to make easy day trips to Siena, Rome, Florence and Montalcino and be back in the serenity of the house and garden in time for dinner are what combine to make Le Capannacce a destination our guests have enjoyed returning to year after year.
