'A Small Piece Of Heaven In Tuscany' as quoted by a guest and, of course, we must agree!
Capanno Del Lupo is a beautiful stone farmhouse, recently restored, which stands in 20 acres of hillside that merge into chestnut groves and woodland. It's position high in the Tuscan hills offers amazing views, seclusion and tranquillity and is perfectly located for walking enthusiasts.
The house is set over three levels: The ground floor has a well equipped farmhouse kitchen, a dining room with seating for 6/8 and a small sitting room. All these rooms open up to the front terrace which is a sun trap for most of the day. A stone stairway leads to Il Girasole bedroom and then continues on to the next level which has the main sitting room and La Photinia bedroom. This sitting room is the heart of the house and is full of character with a rustic stone sink and a large stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a TV with DVD player and a large selection of DVD's to view; a wooden staircase leads up to the master bedroom, La Rosa, which is complete with private bathroom.
A pretty garden surrounds the farmhouse and the large private swimming pool is set a safe distance from the house.
The owners live in the annexe to the rear of the property and are available for advice if required.

Why John Sharp chose Caprese Michelangelo
It was love at first sight for us when we saw Capanno Del Lupo and, even though we hadn't intended to buy a property on our weekend away, we were committed. We loved the beauty and privacy of the area, along with the character of the house.
What makes this farmhouse unique
The best part of being at Capanno Del Lupo is the peace and quiet. It really feels as though you've had that 'stop the world I want to get off' moment! It was this that made my wife and I fall in love with the place. The views are a constant source of wonder and never cease to amaze.
