La Capanna was perfect for the four of us. The place was clean, great layout and view. Also we loved the small town of San Giovanni. The owner was charming, helpful and informative.

Hi Lori, We had a wonderful stay at La Capanna. It was perfect for the 3 of us, and would be for 4, but no more than that. The bedrooms were very nice--good beds, nicely decorated, good closet space, and the air units cooled nicely. The views were wonderful and the patio area was lovely. We loved this area, which was new to us. I would describe the pool as a "splash" or dipping pool, since it is tiny--but great for cooling off. I would also definitely do the pre-shopping for groceries again. Thank you so much for our dinner from Nadia. The food was excellent and we certainly had leftovers, which was great. What a treat!! (And totally unexpected!!) You really came through for us in a last minute situation--you're the best. We are looking to go back for the month of May and possibly early June, or late April. Possibly starting in Positano/Sorrento area, Tuscany again, and then the Lakes region. Are you getting anything smaller in that area? We totally trust your choice of villas--both have been exactly as advertised, and even better, and your recommendations are invaluable. Thank you to you and James for once again providing us with an unforgettable experience in Italia!!

Villa was as pictured. Rooms very comfortable. Bedrooms are large and should explain that European double beds are even bigger than our Queen beds in case people get nervous that beds not big enough. Bedrooms were so quiet, couldn't hear others in the house. Having the fan and A/C was wonderful! All accommodations and the people to help you were wonderful and caring.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa la Capanna. Federica is a charming hostess who met us at the house and gave us all the information needed. The caretaker, Guilliano, was wonderful and checked on the property early every morning to clean the pool, pick up trash etc. The people of San Giovanni d'Asso were very friendly and welcoming and the village is perfectly located for day trips to Tuscan hill towns like Pienza and Montalcino, and also Siena and Florence. All in all, we had a lovely stay.

The property was wonderful - the pictures did justice to it. The views were marvelous, and we were well attended by Francisco. Overall, we had a great experience.
