A cozy place to stay and a good starting point for short trips
If you are looking for a quiet, cozy, well-groomed and typical North Italian holiday home, situated in the countryside but not too far from Florence - so that you can simply relax, enjoy the Tuscany nature as well as visit historical places - you are served well here! Me and my wife stayed there for 4 days (only!) and liked it very much; we found everything as described in the detailed instructions and guides we got from the owner. The kitchen is completely equipped (gas oven, fridge, cutlery…), the king-size bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, with a toilet, bidet, a big shower cabin and a sink, everything working well and clean. Behind the house there is a neat and romantic garden, where you just can relax in the Tuscany sun, or take one of the bikes to explore the neighbourhood.
Although we didn't meet the best weather at the beginning of November (3 days of rain...) nothing could keep us from visiting interesting places around the Arno Valley (Valdarno) like Florence (20 to 40 min. by train starting from Figline - you better reserve tickets for famous museums like Uffizi beforehand!), the Vallombrosa Abbey (15 minutes breakneck car tour to the nearby Pratomagno mountains), San Giustino (a good starting point for hiking), and others. But other famous cities like Siena, Montevarchi and Arezzo are also in reach. The nature and cultivated areas are rich with vineyards and olive groves, and by chance, there was even an olive oil market in the nearby Reggello at that time.
So, besides the bad weather (which nobody can predict) we are very content with our choice of accommodation and of the area. If you don't mind to be chased by impatient Italian car drivers crawling into your car trunk, you may even enjoy the trips on the narrow and bumpy country roads ;)..
We are delighted that you enjoyed yourself in our corner of paradise. Next time we'll try and fix the weather for you as well!!
aber abends sind die Mücken aktiv (August 2017), also Mückenspray etc. einpacken
An October get away at La Capanna
This was an excellent place to stay for a week in October to take in the beautiful Tuscan countryside and to explore the many nearby cultural and historic attractions. The house is well located for visiting Florence, Arezzo, and Siena, and there are also wonderful places to visit within a short drive such as Vallombrosa with its beautiful views and walking trails. It's also an easy drive or walk into the town of Reggello which makes self catering easy. The accommodation is simple but contains everything that is necessary for a comfortable stay, and the garden is spacious and has superb views towards the mountains. It was a great base for exploring the region.
Many thanks for such a good review, which gives a very precise picture of our place and its attractions. And thanks also for being such good guests!
Perfect setting with wonderful views and a beautiful garden with several places to eat outdoors. Comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and -maintained cottage. Delightful local restaurants within easy reach. Well-situated for Florence, Siena and Tuscan hilltop towns. Excellent for hiking.
Thank you for your appreciation of La Capanna. We love the place, so it's good to know that our guests do too!
An ideally located comfortable, well equipped home
We would thoroughly recommend this ideally located one storey home, with comfortable, spacious accommodation, well equipped throughout and excellently maintained. The owner was very easy to contact and provided every assistance in the booking process, including excellent notes about local facilities, travel opportunities, suggesting where to visit, how to get there, accommodating all tastes.
The views from the house were breathtaking, the gardens providing lovely outside eating and recreation facilities and parking our hire car was easy and secure. Food shopping was made convenient with the local supermarket in Cascia, and a bigger superstore in nearby Figline Valdarno.
Access to Firenze was easy by rail from Figline Valdarno, a 10 minute drive from La Capanna. There is a good network of local country roads, providing unlimited opportunities to experience the local Tuscan life in the numerous lovely, historic villages.
spacious and quiet
we loved the location, beautiful and so quiet, the house is spacious, if you want to cook, there's everything needed. The only issue is the Internet, with the web cube we have to share with other guests. The supermarkets are close, there's a great outlet 20 mns from the house, and we are close to the interstate, great when you want to visit all Tuscany.
Küste / Strand:
Das Meer ist mit dem Zug oder der Autobahn leicht zu erreichen. G. Marina di Pisa oder Viareggio oder Castiglioncello (120 bis 150km) aber die Küste westlich von Florenz kann sehr beschäftigt werden. Wir empfehlen eine längere Reise nach Marina di Alberese (ein Naturschutzgebiet, also keine Geschäfte etc.) südlich von Grosseto (ca. 200km).
Die nächstgelegenen Flughäfen sind: Florenz 40 km (sehr wenige Flüge), Pisa 127 km (beste Option) oder Bologna 141 km. Eine Autovermietung ist empfehlenswert, aber nicht unbedingt erforderlich. Um sich vor Ort fortzubewegen, stehen den Besuchern 2 Mountainbikes zur Verfügung.
Das nächste Dorf ist Cascia in etwa 1 km und die kleine Stadt Reggello ist 2 km. Figline Valdarno (Einkaufen, Markt und Bahnhof) und Incisa (Autobahn) sind beide ca. 8km.
Die Landschaft ist ideal zum Wandern. Zu den weiteren Aktivitäten in der Umgebung gehören Schwimmen, Reiten und Angeln. Es gibt viele Geschäfte in der Nähe für alle grundlegenden Notwendigkeiten, darunter ein moderner Supermarkt, eine Apotheke, Banken und mehrere Restaurants. Samstags gibt es einen lokalen Markt. Ausgezeichnete Weine können direkt von lokalen Erzeugern gekauft werden. Für Leute, die ein echtes Schnäppchen in der Welt der "Haute Couture" finden möchten, gibt es im nahe gelegenen Einkaufszentrum The Mall die Fabrikverkaufsstellen von Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent und anderen Top-Designer-Labels. Nicht weit entfernt gibt es ein ähnliches Prada Outlet.
