Capannino, Malafrasca - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people Without Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Small is beautiful, a description that perfectly suits Capannino. This converted barn is a fantastic bolthole for two – what’s more, it’s right on the edge of medieval Siena, one of Tuscany’s top sights. Deceptively spacious, it has a large shaded terrace, set with a barbecue and table and chairs, where you can relax amid the pretty flower pots and look out on the surrounding lush countryside. Inside, a large glass sliding door opens onto a generous open-plan area for cooking, eating and dining, while a luxurious double bed can be found on the mezzanine level. These airy spaces are enhanced by cool white tones and smart modish furnishings.

When you aren’t putting up your feet, there’s plenty to explore in the area. As well as being a couple of miles from historic Siena, the villa is on the route of the famous annual Chianti bicycle race, L’Eroica. If you’re a cyclist yourself, this is also the gateway to some wonderful (if strenuous) outings by bike – you could even try out the famous Eroica and Strade Bianche race routes.

Ground Floor


Sofa, two armchairs, table with chairs, wardrobe, footstool, fully equipped kitchen, stairs to mezzanine, main entrance.

Shower, sink, WC.

Double bed (cannot be converted to twins), chest of drawers, cupboards, storage chest.

Our Thoughts
This villa for two is hopelessly romantic, a mood enhanced when dining out on the terrace under the night sky. But cycling enthusiasts might like it too – for it’s on the route of the L’Eroica and other strade bianchi trails. Capannino is also right on the doorstep of one of Tuscany’s unrivalled treasures, the beautiful medieval city of Siena, as well as the many cellar doors of the region.

One bedroom. There may be some traffic noise from a nearby country road.

There is currently no pool.

Die kleine umgebaute Scheune Capannino ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt, um die kleinen und große Schätze der Umgebung zu erkunden. Sehr zentral, und alles super zu erreichen, wenn man ein Auto hat. Es gibt auch eine Bushaltestelle an der Straße, jedoch können wir nichts zu den Zeiten sagen.
Capannino ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet - etwas weniger Toskana-traditionell, dafür modern und bietet für 2 Personen genug Platz. Kochnische und dazugehörige Utensilien lassen es an Nichts fehlen. Das Bad ist sauber und die Dusche ebenfalls sehr angenehm.
Einziges Manko war die fehlende Terrassenüberdachung (auf dem Bild), da sie wohl im letzten Sturm das Zeitliche segnete und erst demnächst wieder repariert wird. Es wurde aber ein schöner großer Sonnenschirm aufgestellt.

Die nahe Straße ist relativ laut zu hören, da sie doch verhältnismäßig stark befahren ist. Wer absolute Ruhe und Entspannung sucht, könnte hier unter Umständen falsch sein.

Wir haben unseren Urlaub sehr genossen und Chiara ist eine tolle Hauswirtin, die sich sehr gekümmert hat und viele Tipps außerhalb der Reiseführer parat hat, da sie mitten in der Altstadt von Siena ihre eigene Wohnung hat.

Wir können Capannino sehr empfehlen!

Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The owner apologises that the pergola roof was damaged - this occurred in a recent storm. They have now rebuilt this and added new garden loungers and chairs.
