Space 1,291 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 0 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6 ,10 mins to Citta delle Pieve, no other guests

La Capanna is a converted barn set in a couple of hectares of private land, with rows of olive and fruit trees. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is for you. The house is shaded by trees, with views over gentle rolling hills. The spacious interior is open plan with fully fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge. High ceilings make it cool in summer. Sunny terrace and garden for dining, relaxing, playing. The house sits in the hills behind Moiano, a small village between Chiusi and Castiglione del Lago. Citta della Pieve, Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, Cortona, are all within easy reach, making the house an excellent base for exploring the sights of Tuscany and Umbria, especially the medieval towns around Lake Trasimeno. Dip into the Italian renaissance, or browse the markets. You can go walking in the nearby woods and country lanes, collecting blackberries. Swim in the pool, or go sailing and windsurfing at nearby Lake Trasimeno if you are looking for something more active.

Many potential clients ask me if there is another property in the garden, or if the pool is shared. The house stands alone in the garden, and if you choose La Capanna for your holiday you will be the only one swimming in the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chère Lynn,

Nous tenions à vous remercier pour le beau séjour que nous avons passé dans votre maison, nous nous en souviendrons longtemps. Nous nous y sommes vraiment bien plus. La maison était vraiment très agréable, bien équipée et magnifiquement située... Sans oublier la piscine qui a fait le bonheur de nos enfants (et de leurs parents).

Nous avons également apprécié le beau parasol que vous avez installé. Il est magnifique et très pratique.

Encore merci pour votre flexibilité et votre gentillesse.

Au plaisir de séjourner à nouveau dans votre belle maison une prochaine année,

Ps: Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la rencontre de Luc avec qui nous avons passé de chouettes moments.

A week in Umbria

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation fitted the description perfectly but still managed to exceed our expectations. It is so spacious & so well & fully equipped that it is more like borrowing a friends house than renting a property.We enjoyed the internal & external space & missed it when we moved on to another rural property & got less of everything for more money ! This place is good value.

We will recommend it to anyone who wants a base for exploring this region.

A lovely holiday in Umbria

  • 5 of 5

This was a very happy second stay at La Capanna. The house is spacious and well equipped and the interior is lovely and cool in the summer. Our favourite thing about the villa was the outdoor space and the stunning pool where we spent many happy hours. The location of the villa is peaceful and private, but you're close to wonderful towns like Orvieto, and Citta delle Pieve. Many thanks to Lynn and Mariolina for all your help-we felt very welcome.

Lovely and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderfull week in La Capanna. Our two girls loved the pool, very childfriendly. The house was well equiped and wellmaintained. We only missed wifi in the house. The location of La Capanna is excellent when you want to visit Florence, Arrezo, Gerugia, Siena. We had wonderfull meals in Chuisi.

we will for shure recommend La Capanna to our friends or family.

Graham the housemanager was very helpfull en kind.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that the Bery Family enjoyed our house as much as we do. The high ceilings in the spacious living room make it very cool in summer, so the house is a perfect retreat from the pool, if it gets too hot. Our agent and her team aim to provide the warm welcome experienced by the Bery Family and are keeping the house and pool just as they should be. Since we built the pool two years ago, our house has become the perfect destination for a relaxing family holiday - plenty of space in the large private garden and 12 metre pool for you to get away from it all.
