About Francesca

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 Siena Area

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 dream come true in Toscana

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at the Villa was a WOW moment - it was everything we expected but more. Francesca greeted us with kisses and a smile - the most gracious, friendly and helpful of hosts. We requested a 5 hour tour to see and taste some local flavor and Francesca went above and beyond with a visit to a local ceramic studio (which was closed for holidays but Francesca used her smile to persuade the owner to open for us) - this was fascinating and such beautiful pieces we couldn't resist. On to Monteriggioni and a walk about listening to Francesca explain the history with her Toscan passion. She saved the best for last - the most special place Capannelle wine resort in Gaiole

for a wine tasting where she surprised us with a special treat - we will never forget her kindness and her delight at our happiness. We will be going home to New Zealand to tell everyone about this amazing place and this wonderful woman. If you are thinking of booking with Francesca - just do it!! You will not be disappointed.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this house. Perfect for children as well and close enough to Siena for day trips (only 10 minutes by car). Also very close to the best wineries! Francesca took EXCELLENT care of us. She was exceptional. Left us an Italian phone so that we could always have internet access. We also wanted photos of our stay and she sent Antonio (a photographer) to take photos. That are fabulous and will be a lifelong reminder of our stay. I would recommend that house to everyone. If you look at my other reviews, you will see I do not give out five stars easily!

From the moment I emailed Francesca about her beautiful home, I knew it was the place for me to stay. The farmhouse is spectacular, the views are breath taking and the house it self provides every comfort of home. The house was so clean and comfortable. The hot tub was also amazing every evening we really enjoyed that. As for Francesca she is the perfect host and couldn't do enough for us. Was there at every phone call, text, what's app. She also provided superb recommendations to wineries and restaurants and site seeing worth every penny. Francesca is also an amazing tour guide who brought us to Florence for the day and provided information and history you couldn't get with a big tour. We were enarmoured the whole time. Thank you Francesca for everything we loved your home and can't wait to come back soon. This a is a 10 star in my opinion

Thank you

Your new friends

Beautiful House and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

Cappana was more than we had expected. The views from the house and garden are spectacular. The house is really well laid out with three lovely bathrooms and three good sized double bedrooms which are all tastefully decorated and have excellent storage for clothes. The kitchen is large and well stocked with enough equipment and crockery. There are various areas for eating and a very comfortable area for sitting and chilling and an open fire if the weather is a bit chilly. The garden is well kept and offers an eating area, sitting area, together with various chairs and lounges for enjoying the sun. There is also a large hot tub which is sheltered from the sun. All areas of the garden have superb views over vineyards and hills towards the south. There is also a small play area for younger children. Our host, Francesca, was lovely and extremely helpful, offering tours for wine tasting and towns/cities. Francesca and her mother also provided a masterclass in pasta making - this was lots of fun. They then provided a typical Tuscan meal to include plenty of wine! This was a wonderful holiday for our family of six, plus a baby. I would definitely recommend.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We (four of us) stayed for a week in early November. The villa is lovely with a fantastic location and breathtaking scenery. We did need the rental car, but distances to the surrounding towns are not great. The villa is beautifully equipped, especially the kitchen, and the whole house is immaculate. Francesca cooked two delicious and wonderfully Tuscan dinners for us. She was so friendly and we all felt very welcome. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful setting - great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week at this beautiful property just outside of Siena. The house, the pool, the hot tub, the view - absolutely fabulous. You do need a car to get around (to grocery, old city Centro in Siena and surrounding hill towns). Francesca is very helpful - an especially gracious host. I would highly recommend this property for afamily or a group of friends.
