This hotel, situated in the middle of the Chianti, on a very green hill, is a very charming and typical house. The tenants, a lovely old couple who live on site, are very nice and welcoming. The pool is very nice to relax by. I would however recommend to have a car in a good state to go there, as the hotel is reached through a dirt road on the hill (but it has never been a real problem). It is also worth noticing that there is no air conditioning. There is a fan in each room, but we arrived during a heat wave (around 40°C) so the first night was pretty warm. It should not be a problem in other cases, as old houses like this one tend to stay fresh in hot weather.
It was the second time we visited "La Cappanuccia". The first time we luckely found this secret paradise in the "lonley planet". Now we came back for our hooneymoon. I'm not quite sure what "Cappanuccia" means, but I found my own translation: peaceful hidden gem. This little countyhouse with only four rooms is perfect if you are trying to escape from work and the stressful everyday life. Located in the middle of the tuscan forest all you can hear is 100% nature. Only when a plane passes by, which happens very seldom, it's when you notice that there is a civilisation out there somewhere. The rooms are all individually fournished and you can feel the love the owners put into them. This time we had the lovely "grandparents" room. Original old cupboards or a washing table underline the tuscan countyside feeling without missing the modern things like a tv or fridge. The owners are a heartwarming italian couple which help you feel like beeing at home without disturbing any privacy. Even if it's only the second time we stayed here I want to call Daniela and Mario good friends. They understand and talk english so that there are no communication problems what so ever. My personal highlight is Mario's breakfast. Freshly made brushetta, pecorino and italian sausage direktly from the market. Fresh fruits, marmelades and homemade cake for the people who like a sweet breakfast. All accompanied by Mario's smooth jazz and classics collection. I've dreamed of it at home quite some times after our first stay. I don't understand other people complaining about the breakfast. You are in italy so don't expect eggs and bacon! The "Cappanuccia" is a bed and breakfast but Daniela also prepares an fantastic original tuscan dinner if you like to. Check out my pictures. Yes, there are some bugs outside, but for heavens sake it's in the middle of nature! I was lucky to take some pictures of bees and butterflies who enjoy the blooming lavender all around the house. So if you are a photographer don't forget to pack your macro. The windows are protected by screens so we did not see any bugs inside. La Cappanuccia is for everyone who wants to enjoy the true and original tuscan countryside life without missing tv or wifi.…
After a long search for a place to stay in Tuscany we got a recommendation about this place. In order to get their you need to drive about a mile on a bumpy road inside the woods and then you'll get to this amazing cabin, owned by an old couple. The view from the cabin is absolutely astonishing. You can hear the forest around you always. We will definitely go back!
La Capannuccia is a wonderful B&B, with very nice hosts Mario & Daniella. We really enjoyed our stay over here and even booked some additional nights. This B&B is located at the end of a ca 1.2 km gravel forest road - nothing to be afraid of as we could easily do it with our car which has a rather low suspension. This road contributes certainly to the charm of the B&B, as it gives it a more remote and quiet feeling, and we also had plenty of nice meetings with local wildlife (boars, roe, porcupine) along this road. The room was comfortable and kept very clean. Our (standard) room had a private bathroom with a shower. Oversee customers should be advised that there is no airco, which is . They have a nice clean swimming pool and a terrace to enjoy the evening/night sounds, drink some wine, read a book .... The flowers in the garden attract a lot of butterflies, and beautiful lizard rest on the stone walls in the olive-tree garden. This B&B has a very quiet countryside atmosphere, away from the more touristy parts of the Chianti, but only less than 10 minutes driving from Castellina. Breakfast is really great and portions are big! You can also order a home cooked Tuscan meal, which does not come really cheap (ca 25 € pp, depending on what you like, for a 3 course menu), but is excellent. Overall this is an excellent B&B and one of the best places I ever stayed. We really enjoyed our stay over here, and can only give a recommendation. Given the price they charge, I think this is a very good value option if you prefer a quiet countryside stay.…
We stayed there one night in order to visit a nearby winery. At the end of a quite impressive winding road, there’s this peaceful and beautiful B&B. The room was spacious, comfy and felt typical of the region. The owners were helpful and charming and served a generous breakfast with a great selection. We definitely miss their pecorino cheese!!!
My partner and I are from Sydney, Australia and had decided to take a 3 month trip, mostly through Europe and our stay at La Capannuccia was one of the absolute highlights of our trip. We had hired a car and drove from Rome and actually had no intentions of staying in Chianti but got charmed by the quaintness of Castellina. After scouring the streets for a nice B&B we noticed that the Lonely Planet recommended this little B&B, hidden off the roads. Boy are we glad we listened. The owners, Mario and Daniella were incredibly lovely and took us in, despite having no prior reservations. We got in in the late afternoon and they were kind enough to offer the option of paying for a home cooked meal, which we gratefully took (the weather in Italy at the time was not so crash hot). We asked for traditional Tuscan meals and we were not disappointed. Our stay for the night was so lovely that our original intention of staying one night went out the window and we booked an additional night. We asked for another home cooked meal on the second night (with a recommended Chianti wine) and amazingly this surpassed the previous days. So much so that I had to ask for their chickpea soup recipe before I left! =) The rooms were so cosy and we had amazing views over the valley. The owners were so hospitable with suggestions on areas to visit, providing us maps and having a friendly chat whenever we were in the house. Thank you for an amazing couple of days.…
After the hustle of Rome and FLorence it was a sweet treat to settle in to the quiet of La Capannuccia, which is 1.2 K off the highway. The room was well appointed and lovely with a comfortable bed, and gave us the best sleep we had on our 2 1/2 week trip. In mid October it was chilly at night but lovely during the day. The pool is beautiful and would have made a nice swim had we brought our suits. Lounge chairs outside and a patio (where breakfast is served, weather permitting) off the dining room let you relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside. Daniella made dinner both nights we were there and it was delicious, served by Mario. The dining room of this very old converted farmhous/barn lends a warm and peaceful air to a "slow food" meal accompanied by a selection from Mario's collection of jazz. Daniella speaks fairly good English, Mario a little less. They are lovely people who will give you information about the area and the history of their lodging. We hope to go back there again when we return to Italy!…
Completely not what lonely planet made this place seem like. As soon as we got to our room, we discovered a live lizard in the toilet! The bugs were incessant and it felt like we were camping- not something that is worth 95 euros a night. And when we said we wanted to check out after 2 days instead of 4, owner was rude and lost all her supposed hospitality. Our only disappointing hotel during a three week trip!
We had the best 3 nights of our week in Italy here at Locanda La Capannuccia. Daniela & Mario, the owners, looked after us brilliantly and gave invaluable recommendations for local restaurants and things to do. The one night we didn't follow their advice we had a less than average meal so listen to their suggestions!! The bedroom was lovely, very peaceful setting down a steep drive. Lovely pool and delicious breakfast every morning. We will be recommending them to anyone visiting the area and hope to return one day.
I can't say enough good things about Locanda La Capannuccia. A friend and I stayed for two nights and loved every minute of it. The owners were welcoming and warm and we enjoyed spending the evenings talking to them. The room was very clean and the bathroom felt like it has just been renovated. We had a deluxe room and it was quite spacious, as was the bathroom. There are definitely mosquitoes there and no screens on the windows and no AC (just a ceiling fan), so just be aware. We loved it so much though that sleeping in a warm room was a small consideration. The inn is surrounded by Tuscan hills and it's really lovely. We saw fireflies, deer and a wild boar during our stay. The driveway down and then back out can be a little treacherous and nervewracking but well worth it for what you get when you arrive. The location is perfect for touring the Chianti hills, as it was easy to get everywhere. We had dinner at La Capannuccia one night and while a little expensive, was easily one of the best meals we had in Italy. Daniela is a wonderful cook and I highly recommend having at least one dinner there. The breakfast spread was bountiful and delicious. Highly recommended!…
