About this listing
Family owned and operated, we are a simple place and collected, beautifully decorated, with large open spaces, which inspires peace and tranquillity but equipped with all amenities (wi-fi, internet point, tennis court, swimming pool, grass) fantastic
Imagine a typical Tuscan "casolare", house, rustic style, but softened through the colour of the flowers and the warmth of the furnishings. Situated amidst the tranquil and silent countryside and only a few kilometres from the centre of Siena, this is our Holiday Rental Podere Cappella.
Constructed during different eras, the building is structured around an old tower of duty: built around 1500 BC, on the road from Ampugnano that leads to the City of Siena.
Historically, this road was the main transit possibility for grains produced locally and can still to be found on the topographic maps.
The more recent part of the property goes back to beginning of the 19th century and is characterised by solid walls and by a magnificent room which used to be a stable, and after having been restored has been brought to its original beauty.
Our place is simple and united, simply furnished, with big open spaces that inspire peace and tranquility, but with all mod-coms (wi-fi, internet point, pool).
It is an ideal location to relax and to taste the simple and genuine life of the past that is still present between these walls and between this earth...
If you really are willing to sightsee, all the major cultural points of interest are easily reached.
I nostri ospiti possono utilizzare e godere di tutto ciò che costituisce l'abitazione e rilassarsi nei vari angoli dell'ampio parco con ben tre laghetti di cui uno balneabile. La bio-piscina è un ecosistema estremamente ricco e delicato, il bagno nell'acqua pura e non inquinata da nessuno degli additivi chimici tipici delle comuni piscine è una esperienza fantastica. E' però necessario rispettare alcune semplici regole per non danneggiare la flora e la fauna che costituiscono e mantengono l'acqua pura.
What a great home and property. Andrea has invested a great deal of care into the home.
Outdoors: Beautiful garden. Great (actual) grass tennis court. Inviting natural pond/pool. (I have not quite come across such a pool before, but was actually a treat to jump in).
Indoors: Best sleep I have had in a while. A/C not required as interior is very well insulated. Artwork and furniture befitting a traditional and homely style.
Host: Andrea and is family was very warm and gracious. Also honored our privacy. We spent two afternoons/evenings dining outside and felt very at ease.
Location: 20 minute drive from Siena. Town itself seemed quite sleepy. Great for an escape from the city.
Would go back again.
We are traveling the world, staying in Airbnb places as we go.
Andrea's house was the highlight of our trip! Wonderful house and grounds 10 minutes from Siena. We had such a great time with Andrea and his family, and really regretted leaving.
Sleeps 4 nicely. Large house with full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Good WiFi, private entrance to villa with parking for car. Friendly cats, great natural pool.
Note: A bit tricky to find with Google Maps. Andrea and his wife did a great job of getting us there (it's actually really simple to find when you turn the GPS off).
We'd give it 6 stars if we could.
We were warmly welcomed by Andrea, his wife Sonia and their 2 sons into their gorgeous property.
The gardens were amazing, from the bio-pool (where our 2 kids spent most of their time when we were home) to the vegetable and fruit garden without forgetting the numerous relaxing places.
The house, a beautiful traditional Tuscan construction is shared with Andrea’s family, but the two apartments are extremely well separated (Private entrance, private front yard, private gate, and private side of the house). Although their apartment was above ours, they were so quiet and respectful that we almost forgot they live here as well.
The apartment is exactly as on the pictures: Beautiful interior design with a piece of art at every corner.
Everything we needed was there and we had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
We look forward to returning here and exploring Tuscany even more!
Me my boyfriend and a befriended couple stayed at the Casa La Cappelle last week for 6 nights. It's the most wonderful holiday house one can wish for in Tuscany. Its situated in the beautiful tuscan country side only 20 min drive away from Siena. The property that surrounds the house is huge and the garden is really exquisite with luscious plants, pretty flowers and an amazing biological pool in which we enjoyed many cooling swims.
The house is one of those typical old tuscan buildings but with all the comfort of our modern time (wireless internet, dishwasher...). Its nicely furnished and you find everything you need for a comfortable stay. Comfortable beds (2 double) nice bedding, fluffy towels and bathmats and everything was impeccably clean. There is a lovely seating are in the back yard and also by the pool. Andrea Brunelli and his family are lovely people too, very open, helpful, friendly and uncomplicated - thanks again for sharing your beautiful property with us. For any additional information or references you are welcome to contact me at any time. Regards Alana Gahler
Nous avons beaucoup apprecier cette maison et leur proprietaires tout à fait charmants polis et à la fois disponibles et discrets. Le cadre est magnifique avec ses paysages de toscane tout prés de SIENNE. L'equipement tout à fait à la hauteur de nos esperences avec notamment une piscine naturelle tres agréable et un jardin tres vaste.

About the Host, Andrea
Ciao sono Andrea, gestisco la casa vacanze La Cappella, assieme alla mia famiglia, nella splendida toscana. Vi aspetto! Io amo tantissimo anche il mare, e, se vorrete, potrete anche, prenotando, farvi una vacanza alternativa, o allungare la vostra, con una gita in barca a vela, che ho ormeggiata nel porto di Talamone (GR)!
