My family stayed in an adjoining property, La Chiocciola, owned by the same lady, Silvana - Silvana was amazing, she helped us find local amenities and even helped us with extra room. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone as it is the best place I've ever stayed anywhere in the world! Everything was provided and it was clean and comfortable, and the setting is beautiful. Thank you Silvana for a lovely stay :)
Thank you very much for your lovely review.It was so nice to meet you all and I really hope to welcome you again soon.Regards to everybody!!!

We arrived and were met by Sylvana who was friendly and helpful. She showed us around the property and told us where to get supplies and suggestions for eating out. The chapel was very clean and tidy, the surroundings were exactly as described and facilities close by and more than adequate. The letting was in the perfect place to explore Tuscan villages, the coast and Pisa. The village of Fauglia was an easy walk and we could buy everything we needed for a perfect holiday.

"My husband and I spent an idyllic 5 days in one of Silvana and Nilo's beautifully and lovingly restored apartments. Situated on woodland-grounds, they are part of the impressive Villa Negri. (One part was built in the 17th century and the other in the 19th century.) Silvana is a most gracious hostess. We missed the direct bus to Fauglia and so she picked us up at the nearby village that the bus had dropped us off. Our apartment was atop the main house where Silvana and Nilo live. It has a large terracotta-tiled terrace which provides a panoramic view of Fauglia and the surrounding region. We loved the apartment with its antique handcrafted furniture, cool stone floors and modern tiled bathroom. Access to the apartment is via an antique wrought iron spiral staircase which, though giving us no problem, might be difficult for those with mobility issues. That said, we enjoyed coming home and climbing the ancient steps to our "bird's nest" and having Tuscany at our feet. The village of Fauglia is a real delight. Life here is, as has been for centuries, peaceful, quiet and family-oriented. We found the locals friendly and welcoming. Across from our house is a delightful eatery, run by Juliana and Maurizio who do all the cooking on site. Their ragu lasagne fresh from the oven is to die for! An the church's piazza is an excellent gelateria selling homemade Italian ice cream using local ingredients. For art lovers, there is a little gem of a museum housing a local artist's (Giorgio Kienert) works in the village's former jail. All of this has made it one of our most memorable trips ever. We look forward to returning to Villa Negri and Fauglia."
Beaucoup de charme et de caractère
Nous avons séjourné à la Cappellina durant une semaine à l'été 2013. C'est un endroit que nous avions choisi comme point de chute pour découvrir la Toscane. Situé dans un endroit calme, c'est un lieu atypique et de caractère, et qui est confortable.
Silvana et Nilo, les propriétaires, sont des gens charmants et discrets et Silvana, qui parle couramment le français, est toujours là pour rendre service ou vous aider à profiter au mieux de votre séjour.
Le village dispose de plusieurs commerces parmi lesquels de petites épiceries achalandées de bons produits locaux, un excellent glacier artisanal et plusieurs bons restaurants comme La Gattaliola sur la place du village (qui dispose à l'arrière d'une très agréable terrasse et dont nous gardons le souvenir gourmand d'antipasti très goûteuses) ou, un peu à l'écart, Al Canto del Maggio. Sans oublier les exceptionnelles pâtes aux truffes de l'Antica Osteria al Castello, à Lari, un village voisin.
De là, il est très facile de se rendre en voiture dans les principales villes de Toscane (Pise, Lucques, San Gimignano, Sienne, Florence, etc.) comme aussi dans la campagne profonde de la région du Chianti.
C'est un lieu calme et de caractère, idéal pour explorer la Toscane, un endroit que nous recommandons très chaleureusement et où nous reviendrons à coup sûr.
Chapelle authentique rénovée avec goût et soin dans un village sympathique à partir duquel il est facile de visiter la Toscane.
C'est un endroit unique pour un séjour magique.
Il y a plus d'espace que le laisse supposer l'annonce. La propriétaire qui parle français est sympathique et discrète.
