Take Me Back!

  • 5 of 5

This review is so long overdue! Our family stayed at II Capiteto last August and we had a fantastic time at this villa. When we arrived we were greeted by Giona Pisani and were given a tour of the property along with a few bottles of their wine and a bottle their olive oil. I was so impressed with Giona Pisani who managed the property during that time as he was filling in for someone who was on leave. Giona was so friendly, attentive to our needs and extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat, sightseeing, directions and even helped us out on a ticket we received going through the toll roads. He gave us a private tour of the owner of the villa's winery which was fabulous! We loved the wine and ordered some along with olive oil and their wine glasses as a memento of our incredible stay at the villa and had it shipped to us. The villa itself was perfect for a group of 7. We had plenty of sleeping space and the kitchen area is so nice and open with a large dining room table that was perfect to gather around for our meals and converse about our day. The outside of the property looks exactly like the photos you see online! Absolutely a beautiful, tranquil setting with an awesome pool and stunning views! There is a vegetable garden that we were able to enjoy the fresh tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and more! One night we took advantage of the outdoor pizza oven and our son made us delicious homemade pizzas.

The only issues we had was that it is a long drive (30 + minutes) up a windy gravel road with a nine passenger van and we had to deal with car sickness but honestly, I would stay here again because it was that incredible! We used motion sickness wristbands which helped with the motion sickness. There were a lot of bees around the exterior of the property but mostly near the vineyards and not too many around the pool area. There were also some small bugs inside as well but I'm sure that was partly due to the warm weather and surroundings. And because it was warm and the property does not have air conditioning, we did purchase two fans but it wasn't too unpleasant.

To recap, my title says it all... TAKE ME BACK!

Private Villa recently updated and in great condition

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds were everything the pictures showed and more. It was very recently updated, very clean, and located at the end of the road for extreme privacy. The hostess, Elisa, was very nice and always available to assist. This villa is located in the country, so you MUST have a car, but it is only 3 miles or so to the town of Panzano for groceries, and 4 to 5 miles to Greve for stores, restaurants, etc. The location is in the vineyards and olive groves. Wow! And great views from the balcony and patio. Kids will love the ping pong table in the out-building. Dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave, and since it is owned by a vineyard, it comes with a couple bottles of wine from the local area that were fantastic. All in all, a great location and great property.

A Perfect Tuscan Experience

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here with our 2 adult sons and one daughter-in-law. The house was perfect for us in terms of bedrooms each with its own well equipped modern bathroom. The house manages to combine traditional, charming Tuscan features with modern facilities and style. The grounds and pool are the absolute highlight - beautifully maintained and bursting with fantastic edible treats - a veg patch out of sight supplied tomatoes, zucchini, aubergines, peppers and red onions, while there were fig, apricot, lemon trees, plus hedges of rosemary and pots of basil and thyme. I think there were other fruit trees which will come into season later. We unfortunately hit an outrageous heat wave - really ridiculous temperatures that have been going on for ages. The house, which I imagine would be airy and cool in a normal Tuscan summer weather, became very difficult to manage. If air conditioning could be put in the bedrooms this place would have to get 5 stars, and, to be honest, in a normal year, you would give it 5 stars. There are superb views from the terrace and the balcony, complete peace and quiet (just an early morning tractor perhaps in a distant field), and only 10minutes in the car to the little co-op in Panzano. The property manager, Elisa, was charming and very efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for her and any requests or questions we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently. She is a lovely young woman.

Villa Il Capiteto is a farmhouse, over 150 years old and is located privately within its own vineyard and olive groves, at the borders of the famous Conca d'Oro of Panzano in Chianti. Lying on a west-facing hillside, it offers beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside, stretching all the way from San Donato to Tavernelle.

The expansive grounds include a large garden, fruit trees, a small vegetable garden and a swimming pool and therefore ample space to relax. Indulge in our olive oil and wine produced from Carobbio, our winery placed few minutes away, where you can also have a free visit and tasting.

Within the extensive house and grounds, even larger groups find more than enough space to withdraw. Nevertheless, its central location in the Chianti region offers plenty of destinations for excursions.

In the little hamlets of Panzano, Greve, San Casciano, you can find little supermarkets, deli and small family-run bakeries and butchers.

The cities of Florence and Siena are both just 30 km (18 miles) away. San Gimignano is 43 km (26 miles), Radda in Chianti 15 km (9 miles) and Castellina in Chianti 16 km (10 miles) away. There is a diversity of restaurants from simple to exquisite Tuscan cuisine. During the high season the entire Chianti region offers a variety of cultural events such as classical concerts, wine festivals, antique markets, and more.
