I am Francesca mother of Alice and wife of Francesco, I live and work at Siena as a freelance architect and I've put all my soul in this house. The house belongs to my family from 1960 but at the time, it was a hayloft. My father, who was an engineer, had the dream to build his studio. He died when I was 19, without accomplishing his dream. Therefore, I signed myself into the architecture school of Florence, and as soon as I graduated, I renovated the hut trying to shape that dream, into reality. I have lived in this house for 6 beautiful years, until 2009, when my princess Alice was born and I decided to move near my mother, since my husband had a restaurant and was never at home. Since then, I rent the house to my guests, I always try to make them feel at home and try to pass onto them the great passion that connects me to this place.
Francesca purchased this Villa in 1960
Why Francesca chose Castelnuovo Berardenga
I believe that renting the hut is the best way of keeping the place efficient, beautiful, and take care of it year round, trying to share what this magical place has to offer.
What makes this Villa unique
Great privacy but not isolated, panoramic, with breath-taking views on the vineyards and the Chianti hills, extremely quiet and filled with peace. Very close to the historical centre and all the amenities, equipped with all commodities. From here, numerous paths to explore Chianti start, either on foot or bicycle. It offers the possibility to organize events such as birthdays, weddings, baptisms, thanks to its large garden, but also cooking courses and much more. I am available for the guests to organize any type of tour, either eno-gastronomic (wine tour), or any art and culture trip, exploring the neighbour cities like Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, private and exclusive visits to wineries, where you can find the owner personally that will show you the process of the wine production, cooking courses, personal trainer on site and much more.

A Place to relax with family in stunning Tuscany
My family of five so enjoyed our week long stay at Fancesca’s Farm house. The views over the rolling hills and vineyards of the Chianti region were breathtaking. The house is close to a lot of great sights for day trips, but also confortable enough to hang out and relax. We especially enjoyed the hot tub! Francesca is also a wonderful host, cook and tour guide. She came and cooked us a fantastic Tuscan meal one night, even working easily around a Celiac needing to eat gluten free. She also took us out for a day tour of a cheese farm (lunch was such a treat!!) and a local vinyard and olive oil maker. We certainly felt like we got a private inside peak into the Tuscan lifestyle and craftsmanship. Thank you Francesca, for a wonderful family holiday!!
Dear Gretchen thank you to you!
It is always a pleasure to meet a family like yours and share such good time together visiting my tuscany and giving to others the possibility to know more about our culture!
thanks to you!
Very comfortable home, beautiful sunrise view
Excellent base for day trips around Tuscany.
Beautiful Tuscan Vacation house with the best host, Francesca
My wife and I spend almost a full week at Capanna and we loved it! The house was clean and well stocked. Its on a beautiful hillside with amazing views of the vineyards of Chianti. We stayed over new years so it was cold but the fireplace and hot tub made us forget about the weather. A very convenient location for visiting all of Chianti and only 10 mins from Siena city center so the best of both worlds. My wife got sick during our stay and Francesca was so so very helpful. As it was the holidays most Dr. were closed however, she took the time to find us a Dr. who was able to visit the house.
Great vacation house. we definitely recommend this house and hopefully we get to come back again in the summer and use the pool.
Superb Vacation in Tuscany
Perhaps our nicest vacation ever; if I could give this ten stars, I would. The property is spectacular, with wonderful views, excellent bathrooms and bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchen and a nicely-laid out living space with sectional sofa. It's about a five-minute drive to the Siena train station, and maybe 10 to the parking area at the soccer stadium/fort. A fully equipped grocery store (COOP) is also about five minutes away, with a wonderful pasticceria across the street from that for fresh bread and pastries. All of Chianti is literally on your doorstep (there are vineyards 50 meters from the house). But it's not the property itself that made our first trip to Italy so spectacular; it's the owner, Francesca Vigni, who also was our tour guide for Siena, Montalcino and Pienza. This woman is incredible - her English is excellent, and her knowledge of Tuscany is encyclopedic. She is warm, friendly, funny, and took us to local restaurants, wineries, and a cheese farm in Pienza that we would never have found on our own. Our only regret is that we did not hire her to come to Florence and do tours for us during our 3-day stay there (which she will do). Even if you decide not to book this property, book Francesca through her Best of Mas web site for tours. I don't think you will find a better tour guide anywhere in the world.
thank you John!!!
We enjoyed relaxing around the villa and enjoying the gorgeous scenery however the villa itself is located within easy reach of Pisa, Florence, many hill top villages and of course vineyards!
Francesca was very responsive during our stay and the key exchange etc went smoothly.
A great villa with superb views to the rear.
The view to the rear is typical Tuscany - rolling hills and vineyards. Well appointed with a pool and spa. Conveniently located close to Siena for day trips. The cooking class offered in the villa was a highlight.
The hut is located at the gates of the city of Siena and on the slopes of Chianti, at 3 minutes from the Siena-Florence junction, 5 min by car from the historical centre of Siena. It is ideal for whoever that wants to visit the historic town or take a tour to the historical city of San Gimignano, Montalcino, Monteriggioni, Pienza, Montepulciano, and many more.
