Villa Caprera was all I imagined my stay in a Villa in the heart of Tuscany could be. Our hostess was so welcoming – she made a wonderful cake for our arrival, which she gave us along with wine, coffee and other treats. She proudly gave us a tour of the beautiful Villa, suggested local restaurants and other attractions and overall, just made us feel so very welcome.
The Villa is beautifully maintained with furnishings both charming and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with all one needed to cook in the Villa, if you wished. The bedrooms were so cozy. Our daughter stayed in the rooftop bedroom, sleeping with all windows open all night long. We loved how the shuttered windows could be left open to enjoy the breezes, scents of flowers and the sounds of birds, roosters and other animal life.
We loved sitting on the patios to enjoy the beautifully landscaped surroundings. We especially enjoyed the back patio with its amazing views of Siena in the near distance. We would sit here in late afternoon with wine and cheese – it was perfection.
I cannot express in words just how perfect our stay was in this amazing Villa. My dreams came true – such a wonderful experience.
We stayed in Italy for 7 weeks and there is no doubt for me or my wife that Villa Caprera was far and away the best accommodation we had.
This was the place where everything was quality and comfort, a true home away from home. We loved the location peaceful and quiet, Daniella and her husband were so helpful and it was a great pleasure to deal with Simona when we did our booking.
The bus service from here was ideal for us and if we wanted we could call a taxi which arrived in minutes. that was a joy after trying to get a taxi to pick us up in Florence. Siena is a beautiful place with wonderful wine and food available in so many places. We particularly enjoyed the Antico Osteria da Divo where we lunched ttwice. One of only two places in Italy we did this.
We really saw a lot around Siena although we had no car, a bus to San Gimignano, a private car tour to Montalcino, and Montepulciano. Where ever we went what a pleasure to return to Villa Caprera and enjoy the peace and comfort there. Every night we had a cold meal at the villa and savoured one of the wonderful wines from the area.
This was truly a superb place to stay. We will return.
