La Capannina is a delightful 2 story house right inside the little hilltown of San Giovanni d'Asso, not far from Siena. Situated near a medieval castle, this villa was originally a stables built in the 16th century. It has been carefully renovated and is now a comfortable accommodation for 5 people.

Entering the house from the terrace (100 m2) you'll find yourself in an open space room sectioned by tall stone arches into several areas: a sitting room area with a XVI th century fireplace, a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen area.

An iron and travertine stair leads to the first floor where you'll find three air-conditioned bedrooms including one king, one twin, and one single bedroom. Two full bathrooms with shower complete this floor. The open beams, staircase and stone arches make it very charming and classic.

The house opens onto a courtyard which includes a oval pool offering breathtaking panoramic views over the Val d'Orcia, one of the most beautiful landscapes of Tuscany. The courtyard is furnished with a table, six chairs and a large umbrella. Four steps down there are three sunbeds and two deckchairs, and at the end of the outdoor area is a bathroom with shower/changing room, which serves the swimming pool.

La Capannina is an ideal choice for those who wish to be close to shopping, restaurants and cafes, yet be in a private home. San Giovanni d'Asso has approximately 300 inhabitants. La Capannina is situated in the upper part of the village - the "Borghetto", near the ancient castle, which is now the seat of the municipal authorities and which hosts the famous White Truffle Market in the month of November. The white truffle is prized and famous throughout Italy, as well are the other agricultural products of the area: excellent wines, oil, savoury cheeses and honey. In this upper part of the village there is a fine restaurant just a short walk from the the house. The lower part of San Giovanni d'Asso has an 'osteria' (simple restaurant), a baker and butcher, a pharmacy, a post office, a supermarket and cafe/bar. There is no public transport in San Giovanni, therefore it is essential to have a car.

La Capannina borders on the garden of Villa San Giovanni (also featured in our portfolio) and although they each rent separately, if you have a large party of up to 21 people they make an ideal combination. A parking is approx. 100 m from the house, but you can reach the square near the house with your car to load and unload your suitcases and shopping bags.

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Florence 125 km Pisa 190 km Rome 250 km, CD-stereo/radio, Coffee maker, Cooker, small oven, Dog welcome, Electric kettle, Iron and ironing board, Parking approx. 100 m from the house, Poo: 6 x 3m, Pool area is fenced
