La Capannina is a lovely restored barn located in the centre of a simple yet well maintained garden. It's found within a few hundred metres from Campiglia, a little Tuscan village on the outskirts of Colle Val d'Elsa.
In the fenced garden there is a pretty swimming pool surrounded by the open lawn, an umbrella and sun-beds. The property boundary is part-fenced and part-hedging. There are areas where it is possible to see some parts of the neighbouring property.  This should not detract from the privacy offered at La Capannina.
In front of this pretty stone barn is a large terrace furnished with a table with chairs and an umbrella. This is a lovely sunny terrace although some shade is also provided by the nearby trees.
The villa is entered through a wooden door surround be large arched windows. These provide plenty of light to the open-plan living area. On one side is a comfortable sofa that seats 4 people. A large flat-screen TV with satellite is on one wall.
The wooden dining table with 6 chairs is in the middle of the room. To the far end there is a small but functional kitchen fully equipped with gas hobs, fridge with freezer, microwave, dishwasher. Below the stairs to the first floor there is a store room with a washing machine.
The back door leads out onto a second terrace with a wooden pergola. This terrace is furnished with a marble table and 4 chairs. To the other side is a sitting area with 4 cushioned wicker chairs.
Going up the stairs to the first floor there is a bathroom with shower and large mirror. Next to this is a twin bedroom. The room has a wardrobe with limited drawer space. One of the windows has pretty views over the front terrace.
The second bedroom is a larger, bright room. It has a double bed, wardrobe with limited drawer space, and traditional Tuscan marble topped bedside tables. The entire villa is paved with terracotta tiles and has the typical Tuscan terracotta ceiling with wooden beams.

The twin room can be made into a double, please request this when booking if necessary.

The air conditioning is charged as used.

Pros lovely location, short drive to Colle Val d'Elsa with lovely restaurants and sights. Very well kept villa with a lovely warm welcome, despite arriving later than expected at 11pm!
Cons Pool is not heated so can be a bit cool for young children. Hard to find in the dark so very glad the owner was there to guide us in!
Local attractions Nearest town (Colle Val d'Elsa) is lovely with lots of restaurants and sights.

Pros - Sehr großer und sauberer Pool
- gepflegter Gartenbereich
Cons - Sehr laute Umgebung (Hundegebell, permanent) - Ausstattung der Küche eher mangelhaft - Lichtverhältnisse katastrophal (sehr dunkle Küche) - Einrichtung nicht durchdacht (Fernsehr fast an der Decke) - Sehr viele Stechmücken (das ist kein Mangel am Haus, man sollte nur darauf eingestellt sein, wenn man in einer feuchteren Jahreszeit reist) - Am Abreisetag wurde ab 07.00 der Pool gereinigt somit nicht mehr benutzbar, wir wurden dann doch sehr bestimmt (wenn auch freundlich) "Herauskomplimentiert" und sind ca. 09.00 gefahren
Local attractions - San Gimignano, Florenz, Sienna sind in der Nähe und sollten auf jeden Fall angesehen werden

Pros The location was ideal, in close proximity to Sienna and the Tuscan countryside. The villa was small but well decorated and supplied with all one would need and perfect for our needs. The outside are was superb with a mixture of sunsine and shade areas.
Cons The mosquito bites - take protection or else! I was not impressed with having to pay a 250 Euros damage deposit upon arrival at the voilla - but this was administered well and returned at the end of the trip

Pros The location of the villa is beautiful - you do really need a car but there are lots of incredible places to visit within short distance.

The owners were so helpful - even if there was a language barrier - and couldn't do enough to help.

Pool was lovely - villa was spotlessly clean

Nothing to fault at all

Cons Nothing !!
Local attractions San Gimigiano was amazing. We went there on a number of evenings and ate in the square. Ice Cream is a must !!!! Monteriggioni - beautiful - really short drive and only need 2 hours max there - we went in the morning and then spent afternoon on pool at villa

Pros Small yet spacious! Great facilities and wonderful outdoor areas. The pool was a triumph with the children with no chemical related skin complaints! The kitchen was adequately resourced and the bedrooms were a good size. Strangely, though wasps were around the pool, they were docile and kept themselves to themselves. Despite a language barrier, the owners were very kind and friendly; they greeted us upon arrival.
Cons No fault with the villa, but mosquitoes were a bit of a pest!
Local attractions Short drive to both San Gimignano and Siena were highlights. San Gim was close enough to pop to in the evening for a stroll and an ice-cream. We also drove to Venice which was not too far and a good opportunity to take in the magnificent scenery. The old town has a plain osteria, but the view and the cuisine were anything but.

Pros Sehr schönes Haus mit wunderschönem Garten. Riesieger Umschwung mit vielen Olivenbäumen und anderen Pflanzen. Super Pool. Der Vermieter war sehr freundlich. Das Haus war sehr geschmackvoll und authentisch eingerichtet. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir können uns vorstellen, wieder einmal hinzugehen.
Cons Das der Strom abends um 23.15h abgestellt wurde. Das ist etwas früh! Die Spinnweben hätten für diesen Preis vor Antritt weggeputzt werden dürfen... Die Matratzen waren etwas hart.
Local attractions San Giminiano hat uns sehr gefallen. Kann man innerhalb 15 Minuten mit dem Auto bequem erreichen. Auch Florenz und Siena sind einen Besuch wert.

Pros Mooi huis en tuin, centraal gelegen om toscane te bezoeken, rustige ligging in het platteland, prachtig zwembad, mooie terassen, voldoende schaduwplekken, overdekte zithoek
Cons Vijf dagen geen electriciteit tussen 11u en 01u. De eigenaar heeft het wel trachten op te lossen, maar dat heeft toch 5 dagen geduurd. Ter compensatie hebben we de airco kosten niet moeten betalen. Dit werd ons aangeboden zonder dat we ernaar gevraagd hadden Verder waren borden en bestek ook heel beperkt en was er onvoldoende verlichting in de keuken.
Local attractions Volterra was heel mooi en minder toeristisch dan sienna of san gimignano

Pros We didn't want to hire a car and so were looking for somewhere with good transport links in order that we could travel around beautiful Tuscany. La Capannina was the perfect location. There is a bus stop a short walk away where you can catch a bus to colle val d'elsa and from there you can get a bus to a number of beautiful destinations! The villa and grounds are well maintained, the swimming pool is huge! The locals are exceptionally friendly and there is a small bar nearby.
Local attractions We travelled to Siena, San Gimignano, monteriggino by bus, all were fantastic! The nearby town of Colle Val d'elsa is also lovely. There is so much to see and do. All do the places we visited had a vast array of restaurant. It doesn't seem to matter where you eat the good is delicious, as is the wine!

Die verschiedenen Sitzplätze bieten für jede Tageszeit und jeden Anlass passende Möglichkeiten. Das Haus liegt am Rande eines kleinen Dorfes mit 1 Bar und 1 Lebensmittelladen, alles Weitere ist aber in kürzester Zeit zu erreichen. Sehr nette Vermieter! Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen.

Pros Quiet, small, clean, simple,
Very pretty, blossom on the tress and lovely warm weather (early April).
Cons 1 or 2 very small issues e.g. tap in main bathroom did not really work, local people aware. Needed a DVD system remote controller in order to watch DVDs in English - our British DVDs would only play in Italian as the DVD remote was missing and we only had the TV remote. We tried to explain to the local people but couldn't get that clear!
Local attractions San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa were fabulous, much more enjoyable than Florence and Siena which are so busy. Walks along the Via Francigena, from the village, were great. Get a local map and the pathways are signposted. Pizzeria in Le Grazie Restaurant recommended by the local people in Colle Di Val D'Elsa - cannot remember its name, sorry, something like La Cantina (but that's not quite right)

Pros Everything. It was just wonderful to turn up and to find that place waiting for us. The pool was a welcome relief to the scorching temperatures as well
Cons There were always hundreds of wasps around the pool that stung me a couple of times. It looked as though there was a Wasps nest in the roof of the villa so maybe the owners should keep an eye on this
Local attractions Close proximity to Sienna and Florence

Pros I recently visited the La Cappanina to find that the owner has made some great improvements in response to some comments made for the 2012 season. Air conditioning is now fitted to keep the cottage cool during the hot months, there is a new covered shelter for cars to park under within the cottage's grounds, the kitchen items have been fully replenished and outside on the main terrace there are new arm chairs. In addition Internet WiFi is now included and the swimming pool surround and shower has been remade in Travertine.

La Cappanina is at the back of a small village and the surrounding land is wide and open as can be seen in the photographs, to the back of the property is a farm land as can be seen on Google Maps Satellite view.

The owners are enthusiastic and willing, they live close by and although they do not come to the cottage to disturb the guests they are on hand should they be needed.
Cons There is only one bathroom due to local planning restictions.
Local attractions There is a bar and Pizzeria within walking distance and the market town of Colle di Val D'Elsa which is 4km away has a large range of great restaurants, the villa is close to San Gimignano and Volterra and the main road to Florence and Siena is only 10km away.

Pros L'accueil et la gentillesse des propriétaires malgré que la communication en français n'est pas possible. L'entretien de la propriété et de la piscine. Situation géographique de la maison pour visiter la Toscane.
Cons Par rapport au prix, la climatisation serait la bienvenue ce qui permettrait de manger au frais et de ne pas être dévoré par les moustiques, ainsi que la possibilité de dormir fenêtres fermées. En effet, pendant toute la semaine des chiens aboyaient de façon intempestive toutes les nuits (chenils à promixité, chiens de chasse ???) Heureusement nos ados avaient le sommeil profond ! Je recommanderai la Capannina sous réserve de la climatisation.

What were the highlights of your stay?    The location of the property allowed easy access to Siena and the loverly surrounding area. There were a lot of good restaurants within 2kms of the property. It was nice to be able to return to its peaceful and rural location after a day's sightseeing.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accomadation was to a high standard, clean, comfortable and very well maintained. The large gardens and swimming pool were very well kept by the owners and it was good to have so many seating options around the property.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? No
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? The telephone number supplied for owner was incorrect but as we had been told where the keys were it did not cause us any difficulty. The owners are very friendly but do no thave any english whatsover which could make commiunication difficult although it did not impact on our enjoyment of our holiday. It would have been helpful as the owners have no english to have a "welcome book" giving details of how the various applicances worked, the arrangements for the refuse and perhaps some information about the local area i.e. shops, restaurants etc.

 Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? La Campannina die Ruhe, die Lage und die Qualität der Unterkunft. Und auch wie schon mehrfach erlebt Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano (morgens und abends) wenn die Masse der Touristen weg ist.
 Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck der Unterbrungung? Unterkunft war super. Sauber, gepflegt und alles hat funktioniert. Grundstück selber sah genauso aus. Die Vermieter Vilma und Lorenzo waren sehr nett, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Als Gast ist man in Campannina wirklich Gast. Gern irgendwann wieder.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nein.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen?
