A Tuscan Home for Your Perfect Vacation: Casa Cappellino is nestled among the Tuscan hills on
3 acres. The grounds are lovingly landscaped with ponds, olive grove, vineyard, fruit trees and flowering plants.
The property contains two independent stone Tuscan houses that have been beautifully restored to the highest
standards and have retained the Tuscan charm with wooden beams, chestnut doors and windows, terra cotta
floors and wood burning stoves. The two houses are separated on the property by approximately 200 meters to
afford you complete privacy and the most wonderful vacation experience. Your vacation home is completely
furnished for relaxing and comfortable living for all seasons.
An Idyllic Setting: Among the rolling Tuscan hills, you can explore the nearby hills, fields and streams
bountiful with wild life, chestnuts, walnuts, mushrooms, rare ferns and wild flowers. The property overlooks a
small tranquil village in which its proud residents have lived for generations in their family homes. Straight and
elegant cypress trees, mountain streams with rapids and waterfalls adorn this charming little Italy village. Our
famous local Tuscan restaurant, Il Rifugio, that attracts patrons from Milan and Florence, is within a 5-minute walk
of your holiday rental home. Additional equally charming and excellent restaurants are within 10 minutes.
The fountain located directly outside the lower 1-bedroom
house is fed by a natural spring that was a source of drinking
water for the local villagers in the old days. Now this fountain is
a favorite gathering place for visitors at the villa.

with stone exterior walls, wooden beams, terra cotta ceilings, chestnut wooden doors and windows, terra cotta
