A slice of heaven

5 of 5
This is a most peaceful and comfortable house situated in a beautiful location. We have been coming to Tuscany on holiday for many years and this is really the best holiday home we have ever found. Adi, the owners' representative, is a fluent English speaker and is very helpful. The view from the rear of the house is outstanding and watching the changing of the light is mesmerising.

Perfect holiday home in Tuscany

5 of 5
Our stay at Capanna on the Tenuta Larnianone Estate was absolutely perfect. We were met by Tullio, one of the owners, and shown to the property. Capanna was a lovely home with everything we needed. The house was clean and in good working order. The Estate itself is beautiful and we spent a third of our stay on the Estate, walking in the mornings and enjoying spotting lizards, deer and various birds including hoopoes. In the afternoons we went to the pool which was clean and well maintained. Pool towels were provided and there were plenty of sun loungers too. Whichever way you turned, the view was outstandingly beautiful. The house had outside table and chairs so we ate our breakfast outside each morning in the lovely sunshine, listening to the birds, and many lunches and evening drinks were taken there too. We had many trips out including Siena, Volterra, Sangimignano, Florence and Pisa and yet there is still so much we didn't have time to fit in. We ate at one of the local restaurants, recommended by the owners and it was our favourite meal of the holiday. It was a very relaxing and peaceful holiday but the owners were available if we needed them and were very hospitable. Thank you so much Tullio and Paola. We had a perfect holiday in Capanna and would love to come back and visit again. We will never forget this lovely family holiday.
