Beauty and comfort in gorgeous surroundings

We stayed for a week in the Noble apartment in October. The apartment is just beautiful with comfortable beds, lovely modern bathrooms and everything you could want in a kitchen (also everything was spotless). The house is from the ninetheenth century but has been very tastefully modernized. The top bedroom is spectacular with Windows on all sides and the most marvellous views. I don't think the photos really can do it justice. The living room had a big comfy sofa with a good size tv. Someone said in a previous review the WiFi was weak but we had zero problems with it.
The owners were kindness itself with a fresh baked pie waiting for us along with essential supplies such as milk etc. and a bottle of sparkling wine.. They were also incredibly helpful when my husband developed a medical problem and had to see a doctor (taking us there and translating for us, so kind) The house is in a peaceful scenic area with great views of Siena which is a short drive away. It is also a great spot for exploring the surrounding countryside. We had a car but it is possible to without one if so inclined. There is a deli within walking distance and a bus stop where you can catch a bus to go into Siena. If you decide to rent a car, get a small one. Some of the roads off the main arteries are very narrow and winding. Siena itself was very pretty with some excellent restaurants. We had such a great time. We would go back to stay in the villa a heartbeat.

Charming Villa with Fabulous views

We stayed at Villa Caprera for 2 weeks and loved coming home after a day of touring to relax in style. We were greeted upon arrival by the family who were gracious and welcoming-complete with treats including a bottle of wine and a cake! We were given a tour of the home and shown how to operate the appliances. The villa is updated in the kitchen and bathrooms and furnished with lovely antiques. The DVD player could be improved upon but the TV was great. The photos are very accurate and show the true beauty of the villa. In the middle of our 2 week stay the villa was cleaned and linens changed. The towels and linens are high quality and plentiful.
There is a village deli for quick items and a local grocery within a 5 minute drive.
I recommend a GPS to travel in the area and it located the village Costafabbri easily.
I highly recommend this property.

Picture Perfect Location and views to die for

This villa is the perfect spot to stay if you are in Tuscany and want a central location for exploring the nearby hill towns. It is only 3 km from downtown Siena. You really can see Siena out of the bedroom window! The unit is in the upstairs part of the villa, which is situated at the end of a very small road with several absolutely charming villas surrounding a central courtyard. Truly a perfect setting with stunning views, olive groves, a monastery up the hill, ringing bells and roosters crowing in the morning. I felt like I was in a movie set. The villa has been updated beautifully. The kitchen has anything you could imagine if you want to cook in. The bathrooms were state of the art and spotless. Even the bed linens were of the finest quality. We were met with fresh flowers, a bottle of local wine, coffee and staples to get us started. Wonderful hospitality! There is a great little restaurant within walking distance-good food and good value. There is also a small grocery store for basics. You can catch a bus into Siena at the end of the small road, although we had a car so never used the bus. Very quick access to the autostrada and touring small towns nearby was a breeze. Renting with Simona was very easy via email and she always responded to emails promptly. She even gave us some advice on renting a car.

Three minor issues...
1. The "air conditioning" is lame at best. We specifically looked for places to stay with a/c since we visited in the heat of August (100 F every day). Technically, there is A/C-There are two small wall units in two of the bedrooms (not the master) and they did absolutely nothing to cool the place down. Not even sure they were working properly. At night we would open all the shutters and windows and it would cool down but there were a couple of very warm and uncomfortable nights. There are no screens which didn't really matter since there weren't any bugs!
2. The wifi is very weak. Not a big deal to us since we weren't there to go online but it was slow.
3. Ask for directions from downtown Siena. We had a GPS but the small village of Costafabbri where the villa is located was not found by our unit. We spend a good 35 minutes driving around in circles trying to find it.

Overall, this rental far exceeded expectations. I would definitely stay here again-not in August though! It looks exactly like the pictures and we loved it!

A beautiful serene place above Siena

  • 4 of 5

The apartment itself--we were in the 3-bedroom--is impeccably designed, clean, white, with beautiful furniture. The upstairs bedroom--the corn room--is spectacular. The sitting room with TV and couches is the coziest room, and we spent our time there or in the kitchen.

Everything works and the kitchen is fun to cook in. We ended up eating and cooking in the kitchen, or walking down the hill a bit to a good plain restaurant. Also within walking distance is a delicatessan so you don't have to fear running out of wine, cheese, olives, milk, bread, or many other delicious foods.

There are two bathrooms, one deluxe and the other smaller and more spartan. The children's bedroom has three single beds and is cozy and old-fashioned in a sweet way.

There were four in our party—my husband and I, and another couple. We were spending three weeks in Italy and were determined not to rent a car and to use public transportation. Villa Caprera is in a small group of buildings surrounding an antique well. The buildings are lovely and in perfect trim, a small community set on a high hill. Below, a Tuscan landscape and a wild highway down to Siena. We took the nearby bus to the city and from there took the bus to Florence. When we left, we took a bus from the main train station to our next stop--Montepulciano. Our stay was very slightly restricted by the bus schedule but you can always get a reasonably priced cab ride back up to Costafabbri if you stay in the city past the last bus.

Simona's father very kindly took us our first day to a big grocery store where we did a major shop. Other than that we relied on the little store or the excellent Wednesday market in Siena where vendors from all over Tuscany come to sell food, leather goods, and everything else.

The property is clean, well-maintained, and just as described. This wouldn't be a good place to be with toddlers--some delicate furnishings plus an open stone staircase--but with older children it would be fine. The garden is lovely with lots of rosemary, lavender, and flowers, and while it wasn't the weather for outdoor grilling, we could see that this could be done easily.

The Bencini family is very kind, gracious, and helpful.

For those who want to be instantly on the bustling streets of Siena, not the right place. An excellent place for those who like a quiet retreat after busy days. And you could hardly ask for a more beautiful view.
