Overview

About the property

Agriturismo Le Capanne: organic farm tucked away in the Tuscan hills

Apartment Maria can comfortably accommodate 7 people. The apartment is accessed via steps adjacent to the old wood-burning oven, which lead up to the covered veranda. The living room (50m²) has comfortable sofas and satellite TV and opens onto a large kitchen (fully equipped with oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher) with a traditional farmhouse fireplace. The sleeping accommodation is comprised of three bedrooms: one with two single beds (which can be pushed together) and an adjoining bathroom (with shower) and the other two both with double beds and en-suite bathrooms (with shower). There is also a cosy studio/fourth bedroom just off the living room. One of the double bedrooms has a romantic shaded terrace overlooking the wonderful landscape. The patio garden, perfect for dining al fresco or for relaxing while taking in the spectacular views over the olive groves, completes the apartment.

The Agriturismo Le Capanne, immersed in the Tuscany countryside among Florence, Pisa and Siena, offers warm and family hospitality.

Without sacrificing modern convenience, it maintains the tradition of the past, between the garden and farmyard animals.

In the farmhouse there are only three apartments (Maria, Amelia, Andreina) to ensure a comfortable and exclusive holiday.

A common area in the ancient heart of the building is available to read a book, browse our collection of farming and domestic implements that tell the story of country life in Tuscany over the last century (our “farming museum”) or enjoy film screening.

Upon arrival you will be greeted by our 'organic 0 Km welcome basket'.

In our agritourism you can deeply breathe the peace offered by Nature. There isn't luxury, but comfort for wellbeing. Aromas, landscapes, sounds, tranquillity. Hopefully they are of help to reconnect with one’s own inner rhythm and nature.

Swimming pool (6 m x 12 m). Availability of extra beds. Barbeque. Unmade road of about 1 Km. Private parking. Pets welcomed. All utilities (electricity, gas, water), linens (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen – change once a week), initial and final cleaning, parking and the use of swimming pool are included in the rate. The tourist tax of 1 euro/per person aged above 13/per day (for a maximum of 6 nights) is not included and has to be paid cash.

In the structure you can buy organic extra virgin olive oil of our production.

We will be glad to share with you suggestions and tips about our area and its amenities.

Only 1 Km far, in the tiny and nice village of Iano, there are two restaurants, a grocery and a horse-riding.

In the surrounding area there are several organic and biodynamic farms which sell their products (do not miss the lovely pasta made with old grains!).

From our agritourism you can go for a walk in marvellous woods and landscapes, reaching the ruins of an old village.

Golf green is 6 Km far (Castelfalfi).

Nearest railway station is 18 Km far (Castelfiorentino).

Florence is 65 Km far.

You need a car to get to the agritourism.

About Francesca

I am an easy-going and friendly person, in love with Nature.

I am on an 'ecologically journey', step by step, one discovery after the other.

Francesca purchased this farmhouse in 1947

Why Francesca chose Val d'Elsa

This property was passed down through the generations of my family. My mother was borne here and I spent the first two years of my life in this wonderful and peaceful place, so special to me.

What makes this farmhouse unique

In our agritourism you can deeply breathe the peace offered by Nature. There isn't luxury, but comfort for wellbeing. Aromas, landscapes, sounds, tranquillity. Hopefully they are of help to reconnect with one’s own inner rhythm and nature.

Un endroit d'où on ne veut plus partir !

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte se situe dans un cadre vraiment exceptionnel, le décor est parfaitement typique de la Toscane, tout est calme et apaisant. L'accueil de Francesca, sa mère et sa grand-mère restera pour nous une expérience inoubliable, des gens attachants qui vous porte une attention très délicate. Les conseils de Francesca ont été grandement appréciés, tant pour nous indiquer le meilleur restaurant du coin que pour la visite à Florence ou encore la randonnée dans les collines. La maison est grande et tout y est. La piscine est parfaite !!! Nous recommandons ce gîte à tous les amoureux de la nature et aussi aux familles avec enfants.

Le Capanne is located among the most beautiful cities of Tuscany, such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano or Volterra. They can be easily reached by car or train.

Only 3 Km away from Le Capanne, it is worth visiting the so-called 'Jerusalem of San Vivaldo', a unique religious places of Italy. The chapels of the Holy Mount of San Vivaldo are dated back to the 16th century and still preserve statuary groups in terracotta that represent episodes of life and Passion of Jesus Christ

Near Le Capanne there are many organic and biodynamic farms where you can taste the truly Italian flavors.
