La Capanna was converted from an old agricultural building using traditional Tuscan materials. Situated in a small hamlet, 1km from the village of Cascia, it has superb views into the mountains which rise very close to the house, and is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The spacious living/dining room also has a fully equipped kitchen and very good double sofa-bed. The 2 bedrooms have a large double bed and 2 single beds, with ample cupboard and drawer space. There is air-con, central heating, and off-street parking.
The large garden, with superb views into the mountains, has flowers, lawns, pergolas, terraces with tables for outdoor eating and BBQ’s. There are sun loungers, and lots of quiet, shaded corners with seats.
We do not have our own pool, but there are two excellent pools nearby, one of which is ideal for very young children.
The area is renowned for the freshness of the air, and there are many wine producers nearby - mostly Chianti. The local olive oil is held to be amongst the finest in the world!
We have two mountain bike for use of guests, and public transport is good.
A nearby shopping centre 'The Mall', has factory outlets for many top designer labels.
All the additional activities listed are at or very near the house.
