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 en-suite bathroom has a shower. 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.

This is an excellent villa for 2 - 4 people. Finding a villa for 2 with a private pool in a good location can be difficult and we have stayed in several in Tuscany over the last ten years. La Capannina is the best we have found by some distance. The location is excellent with easy access to Volterra, San Gimignano and Siena and is also a good base for exploring southern Tuscany without too much driving. It's blissfully quiet and well equipped and the grounds are beautifully kept. It has a good sized pool too. Supermarkets in Colle di Val d'Elsa and Poggibonsi are easily accessible.
Local attractions The historic centre of Colle di Val d'Elsa is very pretty and has some good shops for ceramics and various other local crafts-people. Having been to the area several times previously we didn't feel a great urge to go to places, but Volterra and San Gimignano are always worth a visit, and the location of La Capannina means you can get there before they get busy. Il Frontoio restaurant in Colle di Val d'Elsa was a good find and has an impressive oil press dating from 1888.

The villa is beautiful, the finishing touches are just great and cannot be faulted. The equipment i.e. crockery, saucepans etc are just fantastic with a wide range to allow those doing a lot of self-catering the option to cook a good meal. The beds were comfortable and bed linen smelt lovely as did soft fluffy towels. No complaints whatsoever! The pool was immaculate, clean and huge.......perfect for a family to enjoy. Plenty of outdoor seating and choices of terrace for escaping the sun or enjoying it! The little extras like books to read and spices/olive oil in the cupboards was a welcome sight. The furniture is all clean and comfortable...it's like a home from home.
Local attractions We found Colle Val D'elsa the nearest place for supermarket, pharmacy and coffee....nice for a wander around.

Prachtig huis op rustige locatie. Mooi zwembad, mooie ruime tuin en heerlijke patio. Met jonge kinderen fijn dat er vanaf de patio goed zicht is op het zwembad. Goede voorzieningen in het huis, wij hebben een top-week gehad.
Local attractions Aanrader voor restaurant is Le Grazie in Colle val d'Elsa. Heerlijk eten en lekkere wijnen voor een goede prijs. Colle val d'Elsa is ook een mooie stad om te bezichtigen. San Giminano wordt vaak genoemd, maar viel ons wat tegen. Erg toeristisch, wel heerlijk ijs bij Gelateria Dondoli.

Zeer rustige omgeving. Aangenaam huis voor warme dagen. Zeer aangenaam en proper zwembad. Huis goed fris te houden dankzij airco.
Mits deuren gesloten te houden en muggenmachientjes, niet echt last gehad van de muggen.
Veel wespen aan zwembad maar deze storen helemaal niet. Eens je uit zwembad bent duiken vogeltjes in scheervlucht over het zwembad wat een spektakel op zichzelf is.
Wel afgelegen, winkel is 15 tot 20 min rijden. Geen bakker in de buurt. Heel klein dorpje.

Al bij al een aangenaam, mooi en verzorgd huisje.
Local attractions San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Firenze, etc. Ideale uitvalsbasis om van Toscane te genieten.

We have stayed in 15 villas with pools and this was the best designed and cleanest pool we have ever used which along with the large splendid garden made our stay special. Inside the house the bathrooms were well designed and finished. The house was clean and had all that was needed.
Local attractions The villa was within walking distance to 2 bars and a restaurant that catered for every taste. If you enjoy walking the White roads/footpaths were very extensive from the villa. Ideal position for visiting hill top towns, Sienna, Florence and within walking distance of Colle de val desa.

Leuk huisje (prima gepoetst) op een goede locatie met een mooi zwembad.
Heel vriendelijke eigenaar, spreekt echter alleen Italiaans, geen woord engels en is telefonisch slecht bereikbaar.
Huisje ziet er precies uit zoals op de foto's. Douche is wel klein (net zoals de bedden trouwens - maar dat is overal zo in Italie).
Helaas wel heel wat insecten; muggen, vliegen, mieren, houtwormen in de balken op de slaapkamer...

Attractive property in tranquil surroundings .The converted barn garden and pool were well maintained .The owners were friendly and helpful but not intrusive .Although there were a couple of neighbouring properties this did not affect our privacy. The location was therefore ideal as we had no wish to be too remote . We were attracted by To Tuscany's photographs and description and were not disappointed .Having had holidays in Tuscany on a fairly regular basis for the last 20 years or so I am pleased to say La Capannina was the best accommodation we have had and I hope to book again in the future
Local attractions Florence is a beautiful city and not a great distance from the property.Having been to Florence on many occasions in the past on this occasion we did not visit as it is tiring to drive park and then find one's way out of Florence.However it is perfectly possible for those who are looking to visit for the first time .Siena is much easier to visit - short distance and easier parking.We never tire of Siena and the Duomo recently uncovered after restoration is magnificent The restaurant in Grazie ( approx 2 kilometres from La Capannina ) is excellent - friendly,very reasonable , good wine list

La Capannina sorgt mit seiner perfekten Lage, dem superschön angelegten und gepflegten Grundstück mit Pool, der liebevoll gestalteten typisch italienischen Eintichtung und nicht zuletzt durch die supernette jedoch unaufdringliche Betreuung der Eigentümer für einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt. Die Bilder im Internet versprechen nicht zu viel, alles sieht 1:1 so aus. Der Pool ist verhältnismäßig groß und wird sehr sauber gehalten. Wer sich an Vögeln stört, die hin und wieder den Pool besuchen, um zu trinken, oder dem ein oder anderen Insekt, was sich inmitten der Natur durchaus mal ins Haus verirrt, sollte lieber ein steriles Hotel in der Stadt wählen, anstatt einem derart idyllischen Rückzugsort deswegen Sterne abzuziehen. Wir hatten zwar Pech mit dem Wetter, aber das fällt hier keineswegs ins Gewicht. Kleinen Pannen und Anliegen nahm man sich immer sofort an und war stets bemüht, dass wir uns wohl fühlen. Für diese extrem liebevolle Betreuung (die sich auch im ländlichen Umfeld zeigte) würde ich gerne einen 11. Stern vergeben.
Sofern es sich machen lässt werden wir auf jeden Fall wiederkommen :-)
Local attractions San Gimignano, was nur 15 Minuten entfernt ist, darf auf gar keinen Fall versäumt werden. Der urig italienische Flair mit seinem alten Gemäuer und typisch engen Gassen lässt sich durchaus auch mal kurzfristig für ein Abendessen genießen. Tipp: Auto frühzeitig abstellen und bloß nicht versehentlich ins Zentrum fahren...da kommt man nicht mehr raus ;-) Klassische Ausflugsziele sind mit ca. 25 Min. Entfernung Siena ( mind. 1/2 Tag) und mit ca. 50 Autominuten Entfernung Florenz (Ganztagesausflug). Beides lohnt sich!

La Capannina really is a beautiful villa, the best we've stayed in. The house is tucked away and very secluded but only a few minutes from the road that links Colle Di Val D'Elsa and quickly onto San Gimignano (20 mins), Siena (25 mins), Volterra (25 mins) etc.

Everything at the villa is of good quality and the entire property is very clean and well maintained. The grounds are lovely and spacious and the pool is wonderful, warm and really clean.

Another major bonus is that the owners are brilliant - They are so helpful and come quickly if called but are not intrusive at all. During our stay the fridge broke and they came the same day and replaced it - they even restocked all our food for us!

I highly recommend this villa! You will love it!
The only issue we had was the mosquitoes - they are particularly nasty 'Tiger Mosquitoes' so make sure you take/buy a repellent that deals with them as normal repellents don't worry them! The pharmacy in Colle Di Val D'Elsa can help if needed.

Eine sehr charmante und geschmackvolle Residenz. Die ruhige Lage war toll und der perfekte Ausgangspunkt für alle Unternehmungen. Nach dem Sightseeing war der Pool genau die richtige Erfrischung. Eine sehr erholsame Woche.
Das Verwaltungspersonal und der Gärtner waren sehr nett und zurückhaltend, aber unheimlich hilfsbereit.
Local attractions Siena war das Highlight. Aber auch Volle Val D'elsa hat sehr viel Flair. Meistens haben wir die leckeren italienischen Köstlichkeiten auf der Terrasse von La Capannina genossen.

Het is fijn huis met een schitterend zwembad en het is erg goed onderhouden. De royale tuin ligt er schitterend bij en is 's avonds mooi verlicht. De eigenaar en zijn familie zijn erg vriendelijk! La Capannina ligt vlak bij Colle di Val d'Elsa en San Gimignano. Maar ook Florence, Siena en Volterra zijn vanuit het huis makkelijk te bereiken.
Er waren veel wespen aan de rand van het zwembad.
Local attractions Chianti en Val d'Orcia zijn echt schitterend. Er zijn veel restaurants in de omgeving. Dichtbij het huis is Le Grazie, wij hebben daar heerlijk gegeten.

The house was a perfect size for a family of 4 and the outside including the swimming pool were great with lots of trees and bushes to enjoy the shade. We had a very warm welcome. The air conditioning was nice to have in the bedrooms as it can get very hot during the summer.
The mosquitoes were annoying but I think that a couple of citronella plants around the outside eating areas would solve the problem.

It was as good as it looked in the online material. Very comfortable villa, private, lovely spacious grounds and a fantastic pool. With temperatures over 35 degrees every day the pool was vital.
Although there is nothing in the village of Campiglia where La Capannina is located, it is nevertheless well located and relatively close to the main attractions in Tuscany (assuming you have a car).. And a supermarket is not so far away (in Colle di Val d'Elsa).
Aircon in the two bedrooms was available at an extra cost and we needed that at night and all slept well.
No complaints. The owner quietly came to the grounds each evening to water the plants (and I presume to keep an eye on things) which wasn't expected but he didn't intrude, and, so, no problem.
Local attractions Very good restaurant/pizzeria in the next tiny village, Le Grazie. Only about 2 miles away. Many of the 'destination' hill towns are within an hour's drive.

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!

- Sehr großer und sauberer Pool
- gepflegter Gartenbereich
- 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

Following their own stay at the villa, the owner can confirm that there was no disturbance from barking dogs. They were sorry to hear that you had a problem during your stay. The pool was cleaned at 7am and was therefore available for use before departure - apologies for any confusion.

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.
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

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


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

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.
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.

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.
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.

Mooi huis en tuin, centraal gelegen om toscane te bezoeken, rustige ligging in het platteland, prachtig zwembad, mooie terassen, voldoende schaduwplekken, overdekte zithoek
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

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!

Wir haben uns in diesem bezaubernden Haus sehr wohlgefühlt. Es ist mit allen wichtigen Dingen ausgestattet, sogar ein Fön (für die Damen wichtig :-)) war vorhanden. 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.

Quiet, small, clean, simple,
Very pretty, blossom on the tress and lovely warm weather (early April).
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)

The water pressure in the tap in the bathroom has now been fixed. The owner has bought a new remote control for the DVD and all is working fine now.
