This apartment is part of a nice holiday home with pool ,composed from 6 apartments in Tavarnelle val di Pesa beetween Florence and Siena.
The Holiday House La Capannina di Matteo is located a few hundred metres from the ancient Roman road called Via Cassia, right outside the centre of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, halfway between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti and surrounded by the famous hills that made Tuscany known all over the world.
When choosing this accomodation, guests will enjoy a unique holiday in farmhouse in Tuscany, a few kilometers from the town centre, yet surrounded by nature.
Nested in a grass garden, where smell of lavender and roses combine in a unique fragrance, this holidayhome orginates from the restoration of a typical tuscan villa that was a farmhouse.
There are 6 independent holiday apartments at guests disposal, 4 in the hayloft and 2, together with the reception, located in the main Villa.
LA PICCIONAIA (‘THE PIGEON LOFT’) – sleeps 6
This is the largest apartment in the holiday apartment complex. It has been decorated with taste and elegance. It consists of two levels of the main farmhouse.
On the first floor there is a large welcoming living room furnished with comfortable sofas. This leads into the kitchen which is completely equipped with oven-fridge-dishwasher. On the same floor there are also 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with shower. Thanks to an easily accessible wooden spiral staircase, it is possible to reach the above floor – the dovecoat (or ‘pigeon loft’). The dovecote was originally used to house the numerous doves and pigeons of the farm. A lovely double bedroom has now been created from this space which is a typical element of Tuscan farmhouse architecture.
Four delightful apartments have been created out of the well thought-out restoration of the barn. They now form the ‘Capanna’ (‘Cottage’). The most minute details have been adhered to and the apartments have been furnished with taste in every lovely detail including for example wooden beamed ceilings, terra cotta floors and wrought iron railings not to mention the stylish furniture and accessories.
The names given to the various holiday apartments refer to Tuscan peasant farmer traditions and evoke – in this comfortable and family environment – a memory of an almost forgotten past.
