About maria luisa venturi
My name is Maria Luisa. I've been spending a great part of my life in this area of Tuscany, which I know very well.The houses which I offer for rent are part of a country estate which belonged to my mother's family. Since I inherited the property I've been spending time and money to restore them and decided to rent them out in order to maintain them in good shape and pass them to my children and grandchildren in the future. I love this job. It gives me the opportunity of meeting new people who sometimes become good friends and like visiting us year after year.

Awonderful stay at a magnificent place.
Even for the sixth time being here the place keeps surprising us. Every time when we arrive and seeing this beautiful cottage it is like coming to our second home. We do feel so welcome by Maria Luisa, Vanni and Nicola. We have in Holland the expression: Feeling like God in France, well this is even better, feeling like God in Italy!
Every morning when we opened the wooden door we were greeted by the stunning view and during our breakfest we enjoyed the scenery.
This is the ultimate place to find rest. sitting laying in the deckchairs, reading and watching the big poole. And when it gets to warm going for a swimm. Wenn were in the mood for sightseeing we travelled to Firenze by train or drove to Poppi, Arezzo, Sienna, Lucca.
The cottage feels very cozy and during the night you can hear the silence with now and then the sound of wildlife. For us this place deserves 10 Stars.
Thank you Maria Luiza, Vanni and Nicola, we hope to come again

Firstly, the property is beautiful and just the right accommodation for 2 people. There were different areas around the spacious ground surrounding our property- very quiet and secluded. We enjoyed views of the stunning surrounding countryside and the shared pool. The pool area was well set out with loungers, table, umbrellas set out in spacious groups around the large grassy area. Although there were a few other families, we often had the area to ourselves. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet, having barbecues and drinking the delicious wine the family produced in their vineyard. We visited surrounding small towns as well as Arezzo which is smaller and quieter than Florence but very beautiful. The only slight drawback for us was that there were no restaurants within walking distance and every excursion was by the very windy road down to the village.
Maria Luisa was a perfect host- we really enjoyed our visit to the olive press and vineyard.

Thing is we really did not no what to expect...but guess what, completely beyond our expectations. Stunning views, amazing wildlife...solitude...just what we were after.9 days of absolutely doing nothing but absorbing the atmosphere, it doesn't get any better.
Dear Guest, thanks a lot for your appreciative comments about La Capannina, You'll be always welcome!
A perfect cosy hideaway for two
A characterful property in a beautiful, quiet location surrounded by unspoilt woodland, birdsong and stunning views. Good local walks, hamlets and towns to explore along with an easy close train into Florence. Maria- Luisa and family are extremely helpful with advice if required for local restaurants etc. A thoroughly relaxing week thankyou.
thanks for taking the time to submit a reviwe about our property. We really appreciated the way your comments were delivered , essential, but very accurate. Looking forward to your next stay at our property,
We stayed at La Capannina to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. A lovely house, well equipped and maintained with plenty of character and history. Nothing better than sitting outside in the evenings watching the sun setting over the mountains, listening to the wildlife and watching the stars coming out whilst sipping a glass of local wine! Views are spectacular and ever-changing. Lovely pool area with more amazing views. Great to have owner Maria Luisa on site to welcome us to the house and show us around. Local small town of Londa has a good selection of shops and restaurants and a train service to Florence - but it's all too tempting not to venture far from La Capannina at all!

We were joined by our daughter and grandchildren who stayed in an adjacent property which is ideal fir families. The swimming pool is lovely very attractive surroundings and clean and very well maintained by the owners.
The location is near a small village with very friendly local people. There were two very good restaurants in the village and several within 20 minutes drive. Florence us easily accessible by a local train. Thank you once again for a fantastic holiday we hope to be back.
