Capanna leopoldina is an independent cottage on two floors, located in a sloped garden at the top of the hamlet Rocca di Castellina. From the villa there are fantastic views of the Chianti and of Castellina in Chianti which lies across vineyards and olive groves slightly further up the hill.
Outside the villa is a huge stone paved terrace with incredible views of the olive groves and vineyards bordered by forests that surround this wonderful Tuscan villa. From here the views continue down the valley towards Monteriggioni and then on beyond up the hills that surround Casole val d'Elsa and Colle val d'Elsa. The terrace is furnished with a table and chairs to dine al fresco and to one side is stone built barbeque.
Inside the villa is spacious and bright, it is done in typical Tuscan style with a terracotta floor and the ceiling of terracotta tiles and wooden beams. Entering from the terrace there is a large fully equipped kitchen which includes gas hobs, an oven, dishwasher and a large fridge with separate freezer section. In the centre of the kitchen is a large marble topped island providing plenty of work space.
Passing under an arch there is the dining room. This room is furnished with a tradition Tuscan wooden table with benches on either side. It seats comfortably 10 people. From this room a large glass door provides access to the stone paved terrace outside.

The room has double doors out to the terrace. To one side is a large wardrobe. The room can be made into a twin if requested when booking.

Pros Das Ferienhaus hat genau unseren Erwartungen und Ansprüchen entsprochen. In ca. 15 Minuten kann man zu Fuss ein gutes Lokal erreichen. Ebenso ist ein Gang in den Ort leicht möglich. Die Betreuung vor Ort (Martina) war hervorragend. Sie war sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und hat viele gute Tipps zu Essen und Trinken gegeben. Kommunikation über Englisch funktionierte prima. Die angebotene Weinbergführung mit Weinverköstigung und Imbiss kann man nur wärmstens empfehlen. Die Lage des Ferienhauses hat uns immer wieder fasziniert.
Die Ausstattung mit je einem Bad/WC pro Schlafzimmer ist m.E. nicht zu toppen. Sehr geräumige Zimmer. Die Küchenausstattung lässt ebenfalls keine Wünsche offen. Wir haben mehrfach für 9 Personen gekocht und das hat riesig Spass gemacht.
Aus den angebotenen Weinen im Ferienhaus kann jeder seinen Favoriten schnell finden. Der Grappa hat ebenfalls die Woche unseres Aufenthaltes nicht überstanden.
Sehr gut ist auch das Olivenöl nur mussten wir auf das größere Gebinde (3 Liter) zurückgreifen.
Cons Da fällt mir nichts zu ein!!!
Local attractions Wir besuchten: Siena, Florenz, Cole di Val d´Elsa, Monteriggione, Volterra, San Gimingnano, Montepulciano Alle Ziele sind von Castellina i.Ch. schnell zu erreichen. War für uns mit Auswahlkriterium für dieses Ferienhaus war. Für die Abfahrt Richtung Siena und grundsätzlich auch für alles was Richtung Poggibonsi und weiter geht, sollte man unbedingt die Strecke Richtung Monteriggione wählen. Dies ist eindeutig die Strecke mit den wenigsten Kurven. Das ist insbesondere hilfreich, wenn man wie wir mit einem Kleinbus unterwegs ist. In Castellina selbst haben wir sehr gut in den von Martina empfohlenen Gaststätten gegessen. Unbedingt die Gelateria L´Antica Delizia besuchen. (Via Fiorentina 4) Wir haben das leider erst am vorletzten Tag getan. Hervorragendes Eis und köstliche Eistorten. In Florenz kann man zumEssen auch durchaus die Markthalle empfehlen. Sehr gut und absolut empfehlenswert ist es in Siena und Florenz deutschsprachige Führungen zu buchen (Kosten ca. 150 - 165 EUR). Siena => Centro Guide Turistiche
